Central Sydney Dermatology is proud to acknowledge World Skin Day 2020!

This has been a challenging year for everyone and we would like to thank our patients who have been extremely patient in this current crisis.

We have offered telehealth services over the last few months to the elderly, those in remote areas, those in isolation/quarantine and even those overseas.

Our doors are open and we look forward to welcoming our patients back in person in a COVID safe practice.

Cosmetic appointments

We are now able to book patients for anti-wrinkle injections, chemical peels and other cosmetic treatments.

Due to the continuing situation with COVID-19 and government requirements for social distancing, we are not able to book appointments as easily and frequently  as previous.

Our dermatologists will continue to prioritise appointments for those patients with melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancers, psoriasis, eczema and acne increasing in severity, adverse reactions to medications and other medical dermatology issues.

Our receptionists will endeavour to book you an appointment at a time convenient for you, however we ask for your patience and flexibility in doing so.

Coronavirus

As a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) this practice will not see any patients within 14 days of their return from overseas travel.

This is to protect both patients and staff as we have many people attending our rooms with lower immunity or who are elderly.

If you have a planned appointment within 14 days of intended travel please call 02 9221 1477, our reception staff will reschedule your appointment.

If have been exposed and are showing symptoms please call Health direct hotline 1800 022 222.

Skincare for Women 45+

Did you know that a woman’s skin ages more quickly after menopause than at any other time in her life?

30% of the skin’s collagen is lost within the first 5 years of menopause, due to low oestrogen levels.  During this time a woman skin ages more quickly than at any other stage of her life.  Menopause can cause skin dryness, laxity, wrinkling and dullness.

Emepelle with MEP Technology is clinically proven to significantly improve the visible signs of skin ageing.  Emepelle is the first and only skincare range which targets accelerated collagen loss and skin ageing caused by menopause.

Emepelle Serum is suitable for all skin types. It safely and effectively targets accelerated collagen loss and skin ageing caused by menopause and can be used morning and night in conjunction with your usual skin care routine.

We now have an innovative technology, maximise hydration and pamper your skin with the rich formula of Emepelle Night Cream, suitable for all skin types.
