Welcome to Skin Alert Cairns

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.

Every client is unique. We offer a no obligation, free initial consultation with one of our trained dermal therapists or nurses if you would like more information on any of the services we provide. During this time you can discuss what it is that you would like to achieve. We may use our computerised Visia Complexion Analysis system to help us determine the best possible skin care program for you.

When you feel completely informed and have agreed on your desired course of action we will make the necessary appointments and take care of everything else.
