Who are our dermatologists?
My colleagues are all Fellows of the Australiasian College of Dermatologist. We all have subspecialist interests that cover every aspect of dermatology- from paediatric dermatology, hair disorders, as well as procedural work & skin cancer management. We cover the whole range of dermatological conditions.

What is our ethos & what sets us apart?
We all share the same vision of providing the best clinical care to patients using state of the art lasers and energy devices. We have developed our proprietary treatment protocols to maximize efficacy & patient comfort. Having several devices for each condition allows us to select the treatment plan that is most likely to benefit each condition.
My colleagues & I are active lectures & researchers. We consistently publish our work in journals, as well as participate in training programs to upskill our colleagues & other physicians.
What does a dermatologist treat?
Dermatologists manage disorders of skin, hair & nails. I am a procedural dermatologist, namely my work is focused on surgical, laser, injectables & complex peels.
A dermatologist is different from a cosmetic surgeon /doctor. As a guide, procedural dermatologists go through the following formal training- 6 years medical school, 2 years dermatology research, 4 years formal dermatology training then another few years subspecialing in procedures of interests. Yes, that is a minimum of 12 years study- and that is just the beginning. Learning never ends.
Who are our nurses & dermal therapists?
All our nurses & dermal therapists are trained by myself using a time tested formula I developed 15 years ago. They all undergo the normal training of laser accreditation, in addition to industry training using specific devices. I then upskill them in specific procedures. This upskilling can take anywhere from 6 months to 6 years.
My clinical team works closely with me, as the majority of non-complex procedures are performed by them. This includes laser hair removal, superficial peels, pigment work, vascular lasers, light resurfacing & the treatment of superficial acne scars. This allows for timely treatments that are cost effective for our patients.
Where do I operate from?
I consult from both Cutis Clinic & Cutis Medical, located within 1 km of each other. My complex procedural lists are conducted in operating theaters at Cutis Medical.
What equipment do we use?
The best from each company. We are continually updating equipment with a new device every 8 weeks. This ensures that we are using the latest technology, whether it comes to peels, lasers, injectables, threads or energy devices.
Interested in working with us?
We actively participate in clinical trials, research & development for various industries. For expression of interest please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
