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.

A few weeks ago, my team and I were trained in the use of a machine that allows more uniform and less uncomfortable injection of the same drug used in dermal fillers, directly under the skin.

What is interesting to me, and strikes me during cosmetic clinics, is that most people that I see, are drawn into cosmetic clinics by the (cheap) prices, BUT: – have no idea what they had in the past elsewhere (brand, anti-wrinkle vs filler; amount; injector experience and qualification)– sometimes I see these people because they […]
Common, recurring themes that come up when I am discussing treatment with patients is that of expectations, and cost. When I meet people for the first time, or they contact me to chat, if inexperienced, most are unaware of the basics – the difference between anti wrinkle and filler treatment for example.

There’s no denying we live in a time when there is enormous pressure to look good. Synonymous with the word “good” is the word “attractive” and “young”. Or young-er. To that end, from a young age, we feel pressure to look a certain way, dress a certain way and sometimes, to have attributes that nature […]
As we age, depending on our ethnic background, our age, the amount of pigmentation as well as genetics and other factors such as smoking and regular use of sunscreen, we develop lines where the muscles of our face regularly move under the skin. Over time, these give rise to wrinkles- first these are dynamic; these […]
Question: I don’t need anti wrinkle or filler treatment! Do I? Dr Imaan: Before I began training in this field, I used to think similarly. When we are in our 20s and even early 30s, we are blessed with beautiful plump skin and provided we look after our skin with some basics, a skincare regime, a […]
Question: I look after my skin and it’s in fairly good condition but it’s starting to sag around my mouth and jaws, making me look sad and old. It upsets me to see this in the mirror. What can I do about it? Dr Imaan: It can be upsetting to look at ourselves in the […]
