About Dr Ho

Dr Stephanie Ho is a British trained Consultant Dermatologist who is registered as a skin specialist both in Singapore and the United Kingdom. She has over 18 years of medical experience, and has practised in Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong and Singapore.

She graduated with a medical degree from the University of Edinburgh and attained her postgraduate degree in internal medicine in the United Kingdom. She completed her specialist dermatology training in London, having trained at various hospitals including the prestigious St John's Institute of Dermatology, Chelsea and Westminster, and Barts and The London NHS Trusts. She went on to practise dermatology as well as undertake extensive research at The University of Hong Kong in the use of lasers and lights, publishing numerous articles in international peer reviewed journals as well as contributing to dermatological book chapters. She then moved back to Singapore and was a Consultant Dermatological Surgeon at the National Skin Centre in Singapore with an interest in surgery and lasers before setting up her own private practice - Stephanie Ho Dermatology.

Active in research and education, Dr Ho has published over 20 publications in journals and book chapters, and is an invited reviewer for several international dermatology journals. In addition, she presents regularly at local, regional and international conferences as well as public forums. She has also been actively involved in the teaching of medical students and other fellow doctors throughout her career.

Her international experience has provided exposure to a great diversity of people and skin conditions, and she is equally comfortable treating adults and children of all skin types. She is warm, engaging, and passionate about making a dermatologist's advice more accessible to everyone. A visit to her office can be for any skin condition, medical or cosmetic, serious or benign. Not only does she strive to guide her patients in the management of frustrating skin conditions with scientifically based advice, she also understands how a subtly enhanced appearance can greatly improve self-esteem and confidence, and is an expert with the use of lasers and injectables with a light touch. She seeks to offer personalised stratagies for each individual patient, bridging the gap between traditional dermatology and beauty.

Dr Stephanie Ho is fluent in English, Mandarin and Cantonese.
