We tell ourselves that it’s a privilege to grow old gracefully. And that saying is true. But it is just as important to look fresh and youthful during our 40s, 50s and senior years.

Beautiful skin care starts with the right cosmeceuticals.

ASPECT DR and COSMEDIX offer a range of specialised products that address specific skin conditions as well as natural and intrinsic ageing. They include moisturising creams and intensive serums that trigger cellular renewal, calm hyperactive skin conditions such as rosacea and acne and reduce pigmentation in addition to energising the skin with a boost of Vitamin A, C and B.

Our senior dermal therapist, Michele Hetherington can recommend a selection of serums and creams tailored to your skin. Additionally, our MediSpa can provide you with a compete Starter Kit, Problem Skin Kit or Age Management Kit for your beauty regime at home.

It is a well known fact that Australia has the highest incidence of skin cancers in the world. 

More sobering is the fact that 17 per cent of the population — 2.7 million adults — suffer from sunburn each summer with over 20,000 being treated for skin cancers annually, of which 13,000 are for melanomas. By the age of 70 years, it is now stated that two in three Australians are diagnosed with skin cancer with more than 2000 patients dying each year.

As a specialist plastic surgeon, I say this to every patient. No one is immune from developing skin cancer and the risks increase as you get older.

Skin cancers are treated by several non-invasive and surgical methods, depending on the type of cancer, its size and location on your body and its stage of growth. During your consultation, I will discuss the best procedure to safely remove the cancerous cells along with your medical background, the level of scarring that will result from the procedure and any risks associated with the surgery.

Non-melanoma skin cancers are mostly removed under a local anaesthetic, however, for the more advanced skin cancers, day surgery will be required. Our skin cancer clinic also provides a wide range of ablative and non-ablative laser treatments and skin excisions to remove skin lesions including moles and cysts.

Additionally, I perform skin grafts as well as reconstructive surgery, which leaves the area with more aesthetically-pleasing results.

DOWNTIME: Short treatment or day surgery, depending on the skin cancer. The sutures are removed anywhere from seven to 10 days. FOLLOW UP SESSIONS: Depending on the procedure.
