What is a Skin Specialist? Skin Specialists or dermatologists in Malaysia are medically qualified doctors who provide a range of skin care services from treating simple skin conditions like acne treatment to diagnosis and management of more complicated skin cases like severe acne scars, psoriasis, eczema (atopic dermatitis) etc. Some skin specialists have also expanded their services to provide aesthetic consultation services, and selling beauty and skin care products as well.

Most skin specialists are based in Kuala Lumpur, or simply called KL by locals. And, just in case you are a foreigner, Kuala Lumpur is the federal capital and the largest city in Malaysia.

Bear in mind that the dermatologist's high ranking on page 1 and visible advertisements on Google may not be truly reflective of the doctor's skills, experience and also how 'trustworthy' is the doctor. The skin specialist clinic's ranking and visibility depends on the Google Adwords advertising, Google's search engine algorithms and also can be manipulated by some SEO (search engine optimisation) professionals and tools.

There are many review sites that provide a list of skin specialists and rank them according to their own methods. However, those reviews may not be objective, and that ratings may not be statistically valid. Though the sites are trying to make the ranking objective, the reviews are a listing of opinions and should be judged as such. Therefore, do take those reviews and rankings with a grain of salt.


How to find the best dermatologist in KL (Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia?
  • Skin Specialists or dermatologists in Malaysia are medically qualified doctors who provide a range of skin care services from treating simple skin conditions like acne treatment to diagnosis and management of more complicated skin cases like severe acne scars, psoriasis, eczema (atopic dermatitis) etc. Some skin specialists have also expanded their services to provide aesthetic consultation services, and selling beauty and skin care products as well. 
  • Many skin specialists in the private sector can be quite expensive unless you are in the upper-income group. You could always try to get a referral to the public or government skin specialists. They may not allow you to make appointment directly without a referral from either a general practitioner or a medical officer from the primary care department. Please make your call and enquire directly. 
  • Skin diseases are complex with various root causes and it's also different from one person to another. The performance of a particular medical professional does vary from patient to patient as well as from time to time. Therefore, the need for an already qualified medical doctor to take up further training and specialise in the field of skin care management to become a dermatologist. 
  • You need to rely on your own online and offline research. Feedback from other doctors and friends needs to be incorporated. It's also important to take into consideration other factors like ‘where’ the clinic is, the management of the hospital or the clinic, easy parking, appointment waiting list etc. 
  • Dermatologists, Skin Specialists or Estheticians? Who do you see for your skin problems? Should you see your regular doctor? Should you go to a beauty centre and consult your esthetician? The main difference between a dermatologist and an esthetician is the training background for each profession. If you go see a dermatologist or a skin specialist, you're seeing a doctor. This means that he or she completed medical school and a few years of residency at a medical facility. An esthetician or beautician is a person who has been trained in beauty care. This includes facial massage, manicure, pedicure and some basic medical science like anatomy and physiology related to the face and body. An esthetician or beautician is not allowed to use needles or to give injections (e.g. botox etc.) and certainly not allowed to do surgery on you. 
  • If you have a skin related problem, you're likely to start by seeing your family or primary care doctor. But in some cases when you call to set up an appointment, you may be referred to a skin specialist (dermatologist). If the skin problem is mild and simple, your general practitioner (GP) or primary care doctor (in a GP clinic) would be able to manage it. If the condition gets worse, then you may wish to request your GP to refer you to one of the skin specialist clinics in Kuala Lumpur. If you are on a tight budget, do request your GP to refer you to a government skin specialist instead.
