Non-Surgical Face Lift
Since opening in 2005 under Dr David Candler, Skin Alert Cairns has become a trusted name in skin cancer, serving Cairns and surrounding communities.
Regular skin checks can mean early detection and treatment for skin cancer, and good skin care advice can be the difference to preventing skin cancer in the future. Digital photographs are used to monitor moles of concern. Even melanomas, found early, can be excised with very low risk of recurrence.
Dr Candler has extensive experience with PDT (Photo Dynamic Therapy) with which some basal cell and squamous cell cancers can be treated as an alternative to possibly disfiguring surgery, especially on the face.
No referral is required and our doctors are very experienced in skin cancer diagnosis and management. Specialist referral can be made, on the rare occasion that is needed.
Over time Dr Candler has expanded the services being offered to include anti-wrinkle and injectable treatments, acne treatment, IPL and laser and other dermal therapies. More recently laser treatments for snoring, and also for stress urinary incontinence in women have been added.
Dr Candler has a team of professional, qualified, dermal therapists and nurses who can help identify your individual skin care requirements and make a personalised treatment plan to ensure the best results for you. Our focus is on exceptional service and customer satisfaction.

The purpose of muscle relaxants and fillers is to give a natural-looking refreshed appearance, with a reduction in lines and wrinkles and a subtle increase in volume. Injectables are safe. The original brand of anti-wrinkle injections has been used for medical conditions like muscular sclerosis for over 60 years. Doctors then noticed its value in treating patients with overactive muscles, and as such it was found to be very successful in treating children with cerebral palsy and lines and wrinkles in adults. At Skin Alert we use high quality, clinically proven muscle relaxants. With fillers we are aiming to add subtle volume to the face. Again we use only high quality, clinically proven injectable gel to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds as well as other moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles around your lips and mouth. It generally takes 3 to 10 days after treatment for the maximum…
