Skin Cancer Checks

Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Current statistics show that about two out of three Australians will develop some form of skin cancer before the age of 70. Melanoma is the most common cancer in males aged 25-54 and females aged 15-24. Approximately 1200 Australians of all ages die each year from skin cancer, however most of these deaths from skin cancer are preventable.

Prevention, early detection and treatment of skin cancers is essential. You should check your own skin at least every 2-3 months for any changes, but it is strongly recommended that you have a full body skin check with your doctor every 12-24 months.

When you have a:

  • new spot that is different from other spots around it
  • spot, mole or unusual freckle that has changed in shape, size, or color
  • sore that doesn’t heal
  • skin spot that you are worried about

Anti-wrinkle treatments

Administered by Dr Farah Kroman and Dr Caroline Hardy with over 5 years experience,  Dr Kroman and Dr Hardy will discuss with you your options to achieve the best possible outcome for you. Dr Kroman and Dr Hardy believe in the ‘fresh not frozen’ approach, ensuring a natural more youthful appearance.

What is anti-wrinkle treatment?

Using a natural purified protein, anti-wrinkle treatments relax dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles are formed during facial expressions, overtime causing the appearance of fine lines. For example , when we smile our eye wrinkles become more prominent. Once the muscles are relaxed, you are unable to contract them and continue to make undesirable facial expressions. As a result, lines gradually smooth and new lines are prevented from forming.

What can be treated?

  • Frown or worry lines
  • Crows feet or laughter lines
  • Forehead (surprise lines)

When will I see results?

Generally people start to see results with 1-2 days of their treatment and it can take from 10-14 days for full results to be visible.

How long does treatment last?

Treatment takes less than 20 minutes and lasts up to 4 months.
