What we do...

We specialise in the management of skin cancers and sun damage.


This includes skin cancers of all types, pre-cancerous spots, unwanted pigmentation, fine lines, prominent blood vessels and rosacea. All our treatments have been selected for their effectiveness with little or no down-time.


A referral is recommended for Dr Stephens but is not needed for Dr Adybeik (Darius) for skin cancer checks. 

Darius is a college-endorsed skin cancer physician who is training in optical coherence tomography (OCT) under Dr Stephens. 

The consultation fee for Dr Adybeik is $200.

If you are interested in vascular laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments you can see our highly experienced ADNA laser nurse. Please ask for an appointment with Anna.

A referral is not required and the consultation cost is $50 and rebatable against treatment.


We offer both surgical and non-surgical removal. We can offer infra-red laser mapping of suspicious lesions before any treatment is undertaken. This is also known as "OCT" scanning. This can confirm diagnosis and can determine whether non-surgical treatment is suitable.

If you are concerned about a skin cancer diagnosis and would like a 2nd opinion, please make an appointment with Dr Stephens. These are prioritised - you are generally seen within 1 or 2 weeks.


Cutera Excel V is available for facial blood vessels/ redness, rosacea and spider veins. This is a premium TGA-approved device. A referral is not required for treatment by one of our highly trained ADNA registered nurses. A $50 assessment fee applies which is rebatable against treatment cost. The cost is from $350 for 1-3 spots. Full face treatment is $650. Medicare rebates may apply for treatment of prominent vascular abnormalities.

Treatment of actinic keratoses (pre-cancerous spots) with Metvix cream activated by daylight (daylight photodynamic therapy) is available. In a single application, this can achieve a result that can take weeks using other treatments. Generally, we treat the upper half of your face but we can treat a single spot or a small area such as a nose. Sun damaged scalps can also be treated. Unlike liquid nitrogen treatment, this treatment is more thorough and does not leave you with white spots. There is less downtime and it is far less likely to result in the persisting redness that occurs frequently with other treatments (e.g. Efudix). There may be reimbursement through private health insurance providers.


Intense pulsed light (IPL) using Sciton BBL is available. This is the premium TGA-approved IPL device that NWS Dermatology has developed published protocols for use in photodynamic treatment of skin cancer.

Conventional use of the device is in reducing pigmentation and for rejuvenation. Such treatments are undertaken by a highly trained ADNA registered nurse who has nearly 10 years experience using the Sciton device. A referral is not required. A $50 assessment fee applies which is rebatable against the treatment. Generally 2-3 treatments are required for pigmented spots. More treatments are needed for fine-lines & rejuvenation. 


Laser Genesis is a painless treatment with no downtime using very short (0.3 ms) 1064nm laser pulses. This penetrates deeply in the skin to heat collagen and destroy tiny blood vessels. A series of 3 or more treatments works best for red scars, general redness, fine lines and acne scarring. A single treatment can result in more immediate rejuvenation. Face treatments are from $500. Laser Genesis can be booked directly with one of our ADNA registered nurses. Referral is not required.


Narrow-band UVB phototherapy using a Waldmann 7002 cabinet is available for skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema and vitiligo. Most treatments take less than 2 minutes. UVB treatments are bulk-billed but a consultation is necessary prior to a course of treatment. UVB treatments are available until 615pm on Mondays & Wednesdays.

HYPERHIDROSIS (excessive sweating)

We perform Botox injections in those with excessive armpit sweating that does not respond to antiperspirants. As we are an approved treatment centre, the Botox is dispensed for around $35. A consultation is necessary for the first treatment and an injection fee applies - these are partly Medicare rebatable. Treatment is generally available at the first consultation.

Please note that we are not an allergy clinic.
