Diagnosis of skin cancer
Carbon dioxide laser
Skin graft and flap surgery
Cosmetic fractional laser resurfacing for the face.
We bulk-bill all consultations and treatments and use state-of-the-art carbon dioxide laser and surgical techniques. This means no out-of-pocket cost for most general consultations.
