At Bass Coast Skin Doctors, we are passionate about skin. In Australia, most fatal cases of skin cancer could have been prevented if the appropriate skin checks were performed by an expert skin doctor, in conjunction with regular self-examination. Patient education and regular surveillance are the keys to surviving skin cancer. We strive to offer timely, accessible, and comprehensive care of patients who are at risk or suffering from skin cancer in a professional and caring environment.
Our cosmetic arm was born from the need to treat sun damaged skin and surgical scarring from skin cancer surgery. Because 90% of cosmetic issues are due to sun exposure, our services align to create a holistic offering of ongoing skin care for our patients.
We are focused on skin health and rejuvenation, and believe you deserve great skin not only so you can look better, but because it is vital for a healthier life. We are dedicated to educating patients with honest and accurate information about products and services that really work.
We strongly believe ‘less is more’ and are focused on creating natural results.
Dr Anthony Rixon
Our doctors have years of experience in treating skin specifically. We have the expertise to treat more than 90% of skin cancers within our clinic, so you don’t have to suffer through lengthy delays for appointments and long commutes to see specialists. Our state-of-the-art technology, which utilises AI (artificial intelligence) software for improved diagnostic accuracy, allows us to expertly photograph and monitor lesions, so you have the best chance of an early diagnosis.
In the hands of our specialist skin cancer and cosmetic doctors, you can also rest assured that a skin cancer is never mistakenly treated as a cosmetic concern. We are ideally placed to provide you with accurate diagnoses and medical-grade treatments not available outside a doctors’ clinic.
