Skin Reconstructive Surgery

During the procedure, skin, fatty tissue and muscle are transferred along with the original blood supply from one area of the body (donor site) to the surgical site in order to reconstruct the area.

The procedure can involve the use of microsurgery, and our practice is equipped with a surgical microscope. Very few skin cancer clinics in Australia have this type of equipment.

Mole Mapping with Artificial Intelligence and Optical Spectroscopy

We remain at the forefront of mole mapping in Australia. Our experts provide the most thorough full body mole checks that focus on using state of the art handheld high definition dermascope.

We also use a device called DermaSensor which diagnoses skin cancer through the use of optical spectroscopy and artificial intelligence.

Skin Laser Surgery

Lasers can be effective in the treatment of pre-cancerous areas, as well as treating sun-damage and very early skin cancer on the lips. Our specialists  perform this procedure. laser can be used to treat ‘sunspots’ or solar keratosis on the face, scalp, chest and neck areas. An ablative laser such as CO2 or Erbium laser can be used to treat superficial skin cancers on the lips and other areas.

Laser surgery can have an added benefit over other treatments due to their rejuvenating effects- in most cases, your skin will look younger, fresher and tighter after laser.

Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a treatment used mainly for superficial types of skin cancer. PDT is effective in treating actinic keratoses and superficial basal cell carcinomas. It may also be used for treatment of small, thin, low-risk nodular basal cell carcinomas outside of the head and neck area.

PDT is also sometimes used off-label for facial rejuvenation and to treat mild to moderate acne. Several other conditions have also been studied and may respond to PDT such as psoriasis, warts, mycosis fungoides and extramammary Paget’s disease.

PDT utilises photosensitising agents, oxygen and light, to create a photochemical reaction that selectively destroys cancer cells. Photosensitising agents are drugs that are administered into the body through topical application.
