William K. Wong Sr, MD

William K. Wong

William K. Wong Sr, MD is a “seasoned dermatologist of 37+ years”, an active Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, and a Fellow of the Dermatology Foundation.  He still enjoys his medical mission, practices “holistic participatory approach to skin and related medical maladies”.

Dr. Wong’s main focus includes general dermatologic conditions such as Acne, Infections, Eczema, Psoriasis and other “Derma-itis”. Moreover, he does dermatologic surgical removal of warts, cyst, moles and various skin cancers. This also include cosmetic “look good procedures” such as Botox and Dysport injections, chemical peels, Restylane filler for scars, and laser treatments for excess body hairs, sun-damaged skin blemishes and aging lines and wrinkles.

He is the first dermatologist in Hawaii to offer the Excimer Laser Light System — specifically designed to treat psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, itching from many causes — including kidney failure and Vitiligo, a cosmetically disabling loss of skin pigmentation. In addition, he offers total body Ultraviolet Light (UVB-NB) treatments for generalized outbreaks of psoriasis, eczema and other dermatoses.

Together with his son, Ophthalmologist Dr. William K. Wong Jr., is the first medical practitioner in Hawaii to offer the Pelleve® System, a radio-frequency procedure for safe, painless, effective treatment of aging facial lines, Crow’s Feet, and sagging jowls.

Dr. Wong Sr.'s philosophy is to deliver quality medical care to each patient. He does this by empowering patients to understand, participate, and become actively engaged in the treatment and resolution of their dermatologic ailments. Our integument is so visible and exposed, changes can be easily self-monitored. Thus, full patient participation is essential for rapid recovery.

Recently, as an out-growth from his personal search for optimal health and wellness, he discovered BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy), which has been effective in restoring vigor and vitality to his own body. Now he offers this service to selected patients who welcome this type of medical guidance.
