SKIN CHECK WITH HAND-HELD DERMATOSCOPE &
TOTAL BODY SCAN
Living in Australia, we all understand how dangerous sun exposure can be.
Being a leading country in melanoma and non-melanoma type of skin cancer rate, its very crucial not to underestimate the importance in regular skin checks. Its advised to have at least annual skin check but if you belong to a high risk category or want to play more safe,
6 months or sometimes 3 months skin check is advised. Some melanomas or non-melanoma skin cancer are very aggressive and can develop within a few weeks. DO NOT for your regular skin check if you have any concerns and noticing any changes in your mole.
Mole mapping allows to identify
early signs of cancer
and safe your life.
In our clinic we offer different ways to check your skin, either with hand-held Dermatoscope or Total body scan (mole mapping) where all your moles will be recorded and any early changes compared at your next follow up.
