What Is The Difference Between A Doctor Who Practices Primary Care Dermatology And A Dermatologist?

We often get asked; “What is the difference between a G.P with a special interest in Dermatology and a Dermatologist?”

Dermatologists are specialists in the field of treating skin diseases.  After Medical school and internship, they perform vocational training in dermatology and after passing all their exams and completing their four-year training program are eligible for fellowship with the Australian College of Dermatologists.

A General Practitioner is a speciality doctor in the field of General Practice.  G.P’s are able to train in areas of “special interest” such as Dermatology. The RACGP offer G.P’s specialist training in Dermatology.

Dermatologist / Plastic Surgeon Referrals

Dr Targett always works inside her scope of practice.  For complex cases and where a second opinion is recommended we are always happy to refer to a specialist dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

Dr Targett is a Skin Cancer Specialist and has vast experience at removing skin lesions.  Whether you have annoying moles, skin tags, warts, angiomas, sebaceous cysts etc, we are here to help.

We all want to look our best and facial pigmentation can often erode our confidence.  If you have any facial pigmentation issues such as acne scars, moles, age spots or freckles that you would like removed, this can be easily achieved using the state of the art medical grade laser: Excel V 532nm laser.

One of the most important aspects of a Skin Cancer Specialist’s job is to perform mole checks and skin checks.  Dr Targett has a Diploma in Dermoscopy and has vast experience in the detection of skin cancers.  Dr Targett can perform annual skin checks for the detection of skin cancer as well as addressing any concerns you may experience at any time.  We cannot emphasise enough the importance of self-checks and the early detection of melanoma.

Dr Targett is very experienced at performing skin cancer screening checks as well as treating any suspicious lesions.  If after biopsy, lesions are confirmed as cancerous, Dr Targett is able to effectively excise the lesion with the required margins.  She is able to suture the wound so that minimal scarring results.

Hyperhidrosis is an embarrassing skin condition characterised by excessive sweating of the hands or armpits.  The condition can be treated by using “anti-wrinkle injections”.  As well as causing the skin to tighten, anti-wrinkle injections can also help prevent sweating.
