It is not uncommon for patients to present reporting they have sensitive skin. Equally, it is common to see patients presenting after product overuse, or combining the wrong active ingredients and developing contact dermatitis or worse as a result.

It is refreshing to see journalists write about the dissonance of seeing women, often around their own age, on screens, who seem to be resisting the societal pressure to undergo injectables and other aesthetic treatments, known, in the wrong hands, to “go overboard” and to alter the face, or simply, freeze it, alongside their own […]
One of my favourite cartoonists Lainey Molnar, recently put up a comic capturing what acne can be like for many of us. We may laugh and it is funny. Equally, it is one of the commonest presentations to doctors for women past the age of 25. Adolescence is meant […]
It is likely true that before early 2020, Zoom was not a well known remote conferencing system, and if we'd bought shares in it, we'd like be very very wealthy now. That aside, most of us have used teleconferencing extensively, for meetings and even for patient consultations that we would in days prior, have conducted […]

Dark circles under the eyes are among the commonest reasons people, mostly women, seek help with as early as their late teens and early twenties. Among the reasons cited- well meaning but unhelpful comments from family, friends and even colleagues about looking tired such that people become self conscious even looking at themselves in […]
I love watching the natural progression of the ageing face. Often the best way to do this, is vicariously, through television shows and movies. Unlike much of social media and heavily curated and filtered pictures, the medium of animated shows still retain some degree of honesty about the ageing process. Additionally there is a small […]
People look at me funny when I talk about prevention. I am a primary care doctor, ie a specialist GP, aka Primary Care Physician and our focus and training tends to be holistic, cradle to grave care and a big part of that, is preventing problems before they occur. As someone who has […]
In my work as a cosmetic physician (and even in my work as a skincancer doctor) I regularly have the discussion with patients who are beginning to see signs of ageing they dislike as early as their 20s, about options. I have come to realise that for women at least, as the vast majority who […]

It seems to be everywhere we look. Pillow face. Overfilled. He used to be so handsome, now he just looks odd. She used to be beautiful, now when she talks, she just looks WRONG. There are examples of people who have gone too far with dermal fillers, aka hyaluronic acid fillers- Zac Efron comes to […]
The personalized skin care and beauty worlds are dazzling and baffling with its array of products for sale, backed by influencers touting the benefits and showcasing their uses on all social media channels one might be on.

As it becomes easier and easier to access anti wrinkle injections and dermal fillers in chain clinics and via mobile setups in hair and beauty salons, it is also becoming more common to see adverse outcomes due to some of these treatments, in part due to inexperienced and new injectors often left on their own […]
Despite all the chatter about anti wrinkle injections and treatments on social media, I regularly meet patients of all ages who come to see me asking for anti wrinkle treatments who do not necessarily understand how it works, or how it differs from dermal fillers. As a medical professional, patient centered care is a central […]
There are many myths around sun protection and suntanning in Australia, a land with plenty of sun year round. Is there such thing as a safe tan? We frequently hear of how people don’t like having “pasty white skin”, how they love the feel of the sun on their skin and in skin cancer clinic […]

Two days a week, I work in a dedicated role doing skin cancer checks including skin cancer surgery.
