Due to high incidence of skin cancer and skin ageing in Australian public, Dr Rawal developed interest in skin cancer medicine and Aesthetics as these fields go hand in hand. She can remove different types of unwanted skin lesions and skin cancers in her practice, emphasis being with an aesthetically acceptable final outcome and minimal scarring if possible. She operates Emerge laser for skin rejuvenation, superficial Rosacea and fine wrinkles management, Pelleve Radiofrequency for lifting, tightening and toning skin, and for reducing pore size. She has been injecting fillers and anti wrinkle injections for several years. Rubina also loves to spend time discussing skin types whether it is sensitive, Rosacea prone, Acne prone, Melasma/Cloasma or pigment prone, mixed or ageing sun damaged skin and provide expert advice about suitable skincare as per skin type in order to prevent future likelihood of skin cancer development and to reduce the chance of ageing disgracefully.
