About the department

The department of dermatology and venerology at MEOCLINIC Berlin offers general conservative dermatology and skin surgery. Dermatologists have the most modern techniques: computer-aided diagnostic devices and laser systems such as the Erbium YAG laser or the ResurFX. Laser medicine is a special contemporary branch of dermatology, with different applications from skin rejuvenation to tattoo removal. Classic therapy methods (Botox and hyaluronic treatments) are also used. Depending on the indication, both established therapies and the latest procedures are used in the private dermatologist's practice. The department maintains constant cooperation with colleagues and actively participates in interdisciplinary scientific forums to ensure the individual approach.

Conservative dermatology identifies and treats, for example, allergies and eczema, neurodermatitis, psoriasis (psoriasis) as well as acne, and a variety of inflammatory skin diseases. Other therapeutic areas are skin cancer prevention and sexually transmitted infections. The practice range of services includes skin cancer screening tests and aesthetic dermatology, conservative drug-based treatment, and surgical interventions.
