Dear Dr Graeme, How can we best take care of our skin in North Queensland?

Here at Mackay Skin Clinic and Shakespeare Medical, one of our biggest passions is skin. We all know that skin is our biggest organ, however, sometimes we do forget to give it the care and attention that it requires.

Living in Far North Queensland, we subject our skin on a daily basis to some of the harshest conditions in the world. It is important to know some basic steps on how to protect your skin. If you grew up in Queensland, you would be very familiar with slip, slop, slap, protective clothing and SPF 50+ sunscreen being our first line of defence against the sun.

We recommend a six or 12 monthly regular skin check with a qualified skin specialist. At Shakespeare Medical, we have three doctors who have had extensive training in skincare. They are myself, Dr John Goldston and Dr Rebecca Perks, so you can rest assured you are in great hands with the information that you receive.

Also, using the appropriate skincare products that are suited to your skin type and are not harsh is very important. We can get carried away with the latest products and procedures, however, educating yourself with what products are going to give you the benefits that your skin requires is very important to achieving great results and great skin health. This can be daunting if you have never looked into your skin health before, but our trained staff at Mackay Skin clinic can take the pressure off and make this easy for you.

Booking an initial consult which consists of a Visia Skin Analysis with Karen or Lyra to give you education and information of what products and treatments are available to bring your skin to its optimal health. Call our clinic today to book an appointment for a skin check and a skin analysis.
