Arrival times

We suggest you arrive 30 minutes before your appointment as parking can be a problem. Most patient’s Uber it, it is less stressful. Initial patient registration takes 5 minutes. Please call the practice if you are running late as this will impact patient appointments following your own appointment. Depending on the time constraints, the next patient may be seen before you, alternatively your appointment may need to be rescheduled.

Make up

Please remove your make up prior to your appointment. This is especially important as we require a clean surface to undertake polarized light microscopy to ascertain the type & depth of your pigment. Whilst makeup can be removed immediately prior to your consultation, we prefer to examine non-traumatized skin, as redness during your makeup removal process can compromise the accuracy of our clinical findings.

Our clinical approach entails a structured consultation process to determine the cause of pigmentation, followed by a clinical examination & a comprehensive treatment plan. We allow 30 minutes for a new appointment.
