Dermal Clinicians help people have better looking skin.

Dermal Clinicians have expertise in helping people get their skin concerns handled through a combination of at-home skin care, in clinic treatments and a holistic approach. A Dermal Clinician will focus on skin improvement treatments and non-surgical skin treatments and products to assist patients with acute or chronic skin conditions, disorders and diseases.

Our Dermal Clinicians tend to treat issues such as post-surgery scars or scars from acne or accidents, active acne and blackheads, skin dryness or an over production of serum (oily skin), deep skin wrinkles or lines, sun damage, pigmentation (including Melasma and sun-damage), aged spots, freckles, enlarged pore textures and more.


What makes a Dermal Clinician Special?

A Dermal Clinician helps people learn to improve and manage their skin conditions, every single day.

With extensive skin biology, anatomy and physiology knowledge, Dermal Clinicians also understand the lymphatic, cardiovascular and endocrine systems. They know how the integumentary system can be impacted and how to help you look at your skin and your skin health from a holistic perspective.  They can help you know which products will actually WORK for you and which ones are a waste of money.

Most importantly, Dermal Clinicians can assess and manage risks associated with tissue interactions and advanced therapies to ensure treatments are effective and safe for consumers.

As a full member of the ASDC, a Dermal Clinician has typically studied a Bachelor of Health Science degree specialising in Dermal Therapies.

Do I need a Referral to see a Dermal Clinician? No!

You don’t need a referral to arrange an appointment with a Dermal Clinician; but you will need a Skin Consultation and/or Skin Care Assessment before you can have one of our special treatments such as a skin peel, laser treatment or light treatment.

Whilst you may be referred to one of our top Dermal Clinician’s by your Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon or Injecting Nurse, you do NOT need a GP’s referral to see a Dermal Clinician.

You can phone directly to schedule your first Skin Care Assessment consultation on (03) 8849 1444.

After your first Skin Consultation, which typically includes a Canfield REVEAL imaging assessment of your skin – you will be given an individualised treatment plan. This plan will be fully customised to address your skin concerns – whether that’s removing sun spots, reducing wrinkles or lines, solving pigmentation issues or treating acne or Rosacea.  There are very few skin conditions that our Dermal Clinican’s cannot help you to treat or manage using a combination of in-clinic and at-home skin therapies.

How people discover our leading Melbourne Skin Clinic

About half of our patients find us directly and schedule their first appointment for either a Skin Consultation (Dermal Consultation) which takes 45 minutes – or they book for a Skin Consultation with a treatment option on the day (allow 90 minutes).

Half of our clients are referred to us by others, including Medical Professionals Cosmetic Surgeons, Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists, Endocrinologists, General Practitioners, Cosmetic Injectors, Nurses or Facial Plastic Surgeons.

That’s because these professionals may oversee the medical care of certain skin conditions (severe acne or Rosacea or skin cancer removals, for example), but they may not directly offer the wide range of treatments that our Clinician’s can provide.

These include IPL, Healite II, light-based treatments, lasers, microneedling (Dermapen), Fraxel or deep-peel skin treatments that our Dermal Clinicians offer.

This collaborative approach ensures patients receive advice and treatment resulting in optimum clinical outcomes; and is excellent for at-home skin care programs to manage different skin conditions.
