Dr. James Barnes, graduated in Medicine & Surgery with Honours from the University of NSW in 1978. After studying overseas, he spent some years as medical director of several prestigious medical centres in Sydney before focusing on skin cancer in 1998, and shortly afterwards cosmetic medicine.
He is a registered medical specialist and a member of the Skin Cancer College of Australia and New Zealand. He has undertaken numerous advanced courses in skin cancer diagnosis and management, including surgery, and other training and study in cosmetic therapies, including laser and cosmetic injections with cosmetic fillers and wrinkle injections.
In late April 2014 Dr Barnes was one of a few select invitees to a master class in cosmetic injecting with Dr Arthur Swift, famed international plastic surgeon and opinion leader in the world of aesthetic surgery. “I really enjoyed the interaction with Dr Arthur Swift, as he is one of the best cosmetic injectors in the world,” said Dr Barnes. “I think I can incorporate some of his minimally invasive, low/no pain techniques in delivering beautiPHIcation to the ladies, and men, of the northern beaches of Sydney.”
His myriad hobbies and interests include spending time with his family on Curl Curl and Collaroy beaches, discussing books with friends at Long Reef and Narrabeen, enjoying frisbee throwing at Manly, Queenscliff and Freshwater (formerly Harbord) beaches, and shopping at Warringah Mall in Brookvale or Stockland Shopping Centre in Balgowlah.
