Skin Care & Treatments in Darwin
Get Tested for Skin Cancer
Your skin does quite a bit for your body. It keeps you from losing water too fast, and it protects your body against bacteria and other harmful things. Your skin also shields your organs, blood vessels and nerves and helps your body maintain the right temperature.
But just as you should with the rest of your body, you should have your skin regularly examined to ensure it’s healthy. And if you experience any strange conditions on your skin, you should seek help when you can.
To maintain healthy skin and get the dermatological treatments you need in Darwin, rely on Darwin Dermatology. We can treat and manage numerous skin conditions, and we can identify problematic areas on your skin.
Our highly trained dermatologists are Fellows of the Australasian College of Dermatologists, or FACD, and have studied skin conditions extensively. To provide more thorough, quality services, we have advanced, purpose-built facilities to accommodate a variety of conditions, including a phototherapy room, a surgical procedure room and medical devices to help reduce sweating, acne scars and photo-ageing.
Some of the conditions we treat include:
- Skin cancer
- Acne (pimples)
- Eczema / Dermatitis
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Skin infections
- Urticaria (hives)
- Seborrheic dermatitis

If we suspect your rashes are caused by certain allergies, we can perform patch testing to try and see which substance is the culprit. We can check your skin for skin cancers and surgically treat them if needed.
