Skin cancer and cosmetic medicine

Skin cancer can sometimes be deceptive or can be misdiagnosed.  Furthermore, removal of lesions, pre-cancerous or cancerous can warrant further skin treatments for corrective purposes.  This lecture will provide an update on various lesions, their origin, and manifestations, as well as potential treatment options, surgical and non-surgical.  It will also present ways that skin and dermal therapists can work collaboratively with a cosmetic physician to support the skin’s recovery and in the treatment of scarring for the best possible patient treatment outcome.  Dr Lucas De Siqueira is a RACGP fellow general practitioners who specialised in skin cancers and cosmetic medicine.  In this lecture you will learn:

  • Updates on the diagnosis of various skin lesions, dermatoscopes, and photographic monitoring
  • Surgical and non-surgical treatments for pre-cancerous lesions and early skin cancers
  • Skin graphs and flaps procedures
  • How skin therapists can work collaboratively with a cosmetic physician
