ABOUT BAY DERMATOLOGY

Bay Dermatology is a comprehensive centre for skin health located in the heart of Glenelg. Our highly skilled dermatologists and nurses aim to provide the highest level of patient care, practising up-to-date evidence-based medicine.

At Bay Dermatology, we treat all skin, hair and nail conditions, including acne, psoriasis, eczema, hair loss, hyperhidrosis, alopecia, scarring, sun spots and skin cancers. We also offer removal of benign and malignant skin lesions with cryotherapy and surgery. Cosmetic procedures performed at Bay Dermatology include botox, fillers and microneedling. See SERVICES for details.

WHY CHOOSE US?

With so many professions claiming they can treat skin conditions, it can be difficult trying to choose who to see. Dermatologists are the only experts in skin disease who are recognised by Medicare and AHPRA. Dermatologists are highly qualified in all areas of skin health, including skin, hair and nail diseases, skin cancers, skin surgery and cosmetic treatments.

Dermatologists have undergone a minimum of 6 years of specialist training after qualifying as doctors. It is a competitive process to become a dermatologist in Australia with only a limited number of positions being offered around Australia to the best medical graduates each year. Their extensive training is followed by rigorous examinations before they become accredited as Fellows of the Australasian College of Dermatologists (FACD). Accredited dermatologists in Australia therefore have the title ‘FACD’ after their name.
