Atopic Dermatitis Clinic

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic recurrent skin disease that accompanies dryness, itchiness and erythema of the skin due to damage to the skin barrier and an inflammatory immune response. It often occurs at a young age, but increases in adulthood. Basic skin care such as skin moisturizing is important, but at Dermatology department, it has excellent treatment effect and long-term management system by applying the latest newly developed biological agents along with topical coating agents, systemic drugs, and phototherapy depending on the severity.

Chronic Hives and Allergic Skin Disease Clinic

Chronic urticaria and angioedema are thought to have more immune responses of unknown origin than those caused by external allergic factors, and angioedema that swells to the mucosa may appear as a rare form of genetic disease in addition to severe urticaria. Allergic skin diseases include a variety of diseases and can be diagnosed through patch tests or precise tests based on the cause. Treatment include avoiding causative agents and depending on the severity, in addition to the usual antihistamine medication, immunomodulators and the latest biological agents can be applied to increase the therapeutic effect.

Psoriasis Clinic

Psoriasis is a chronic disease in which keratinous red plate is formed due to immune abnormalities and hyperproliferation of keratin. It is known that it repeats improvement and exacerbation, and may invade other areas such as joints and nails in addition to the skin. Recently it is known that it can be related to metabolic disorder or cardiovascular disease. At Dermatology, in-depth medical treatment as well as systemic examination, phototherapy, systemic immunotherapy, and topical application, along with the latest biologics, are showing excellent treatment effects.

Vitiligo Clinic

Vitiligo is a disease in which white plates of various sizes and shapes appear on the skin due to the loss of melanin cells that make pigments, and it is the most common disease among acquired depigmentation diseases, but its cause is unknown. It can appear across a wide range of ages, from right after birth to old age, and can occur anywhere on the skin, but is more common in areas with frequent friction on the face, such as hands, feet and knees. Vitiligo is not easy to treat because it repeats improvement and exacerbation, but it has good effect through continuous UV treatment and excimer laser treatment. If necessary, topical application and oral medication can be used together.

Acne, Rosacea, Facial Redness

Acne is a common cause of lesions characterized by comedo or pus blisters on the face, neck or chest, and active treatment may be helpful as scars may remain. Depending on the severity of the symptoms, treatment with a combination of oral medications, topical coatings and lasers can alleviate the progress of acne and reduce aftereffects such as scar. Unlike acne, rosacea are accompanied by inflammatory changes in blood vessels with papules, pus blisters, etc. rather than comedo, and facial redness and erythema in the center of the face usually appear. The cause is unknown and has a chronic recurrence. It will be effective to avoid factors that exacerbate symptoms (fever, excessive daylight or drinking) and may benefit from topical coatings, oral medications, and laser treatments depending on the time and severity of the disease.

Autoimmune Skin Disease

Autoimmune diseases, such as lupus erythematosus, dermatomyositis or scleroderma are diseases in which your own immune system attacks itself and causes damage to several organs. Accurate diagnosis is very important because it can appear only in skin. The exact cause has not yet been identified, and it is thought to be environmental factors, such as ultraviolet rays, virus, infection, drugs or smoking can affect people with genetic predisposition to cause it to be multifactorial. It is still impossible to cure it, but it can be controlled by the use of local and systemic immunomodulators and biological agents depending on the symptoms. Dermatology provides the best treatment and diagnosis through appropriate diagnostic tests based on abundant experience in autoimmune skin diseases. Autoimmune blister disease is a relatively rare disease and is classified as a rare incurable disease. The most common diseases are celestial vesicles, deciduous celestial vesicles and blisters. This can chronically relapse, and inadequate diagnosis or mistreatment in the early stage can lead to fatal outcomes, so accurate diagnosis and long-term treatment is crucial. Through in-depth medical treatment, it is possible to establish long-term treatment plans along with detailed examinations and immunomodulators. Moreover, biologics with excellent treatment effects can be used together.

Hair loss

Since hair loss includes various diseases such as male/female hair loss, circular hair loss, telogen hair loss and scarring hair loss, it is important to select the correct diagnosis and treatment accordingly. Gil Medical Center Dermatology is doing its best to increase the effectiveness through various medical and surgical treatments based on the diagnosis.

Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is on the rise in Korea as the aging population increases, and the skin has a variety of malignant tumors, including preinvasive cancer lesions such as actinic keratosis, epithelial cancer, basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma and Paget's disease. Malignant tumors of the skin can usually be cured by destructive treatment such as drug application, cryotherapy or surgical resection, but can rarely recur or metastasize, and as it progresses, invasive and extensive treatment is needed. So it is important to treat as early as possible. Mozumi microscopic surgery can minimize the extent of resection by confirming tissue invasion by microscopic observation during surgery. Our Dermatology provides appropriate diagnosis through biopsy, electrolysis, cryotherapy, mozumi microsurgery, and extensive resection in consideration of various factors, such as the degree of malignancy and infiltration of lesions and other health conditions of patients.


Nail plays an important role such as holding the object and protecting the tip of the toe. Even though it is small, it consists of various structures, such as the nail bottom and nail substrate. It appears in a wide variety of clinical features, including thickening and black nails. It may be associated with inflammatory changes or skin diseases in other parts of the body or even tumors around the nails. Diseases of the nail can cause permanent nail abnormalities and are difficult to treat with frequent recurrence. However, many oral medications and topical coatings, lasers or surgery can often control symptoms and require constant care and treatment.


Scars are caused by the formation of new connective tissue in the process of filling defects in the skin caused by trauma or various diseases, and are one of the normal healing processes. However, as skin appendages such as hair follicles on normal skin are lost, and the appearance of the skin changes, it can be a great cosmetic stress. There are various shapes, such as a thin, atrophy shape, a skin dent and bumpy shape, and a scar fiber hyperplasia protruding like a keloid or a thickening scar. Although scar tissue is unlike normal skin, it is difficult to recover completely, but you can achieve a cosmetically satisfactory effect through laser, radiofrequency therapy, chemodermabrasion, drug application, intralesional injection or cryotherapy. Gil Medical Center Dermatology provides the best treatment by comprehensively suggesting the appropriate treatment for various types of scars.
