Have a skin examination undertaken by our highly experienced primary care dermatology specialists’ dermoscopic skin cameras.
This examination normally takes 10 to 15 minutes, is full body and covers all areas including:
We can also facilitate spot checks and target potential melanoma using high-resolution skin (DermLite Camera) images at 10X magnification. We then store these images and compare them when you return for future visits. If we do find something suspicious, we may need to carry out a skin biopsy or cryotherapy.
The Skin Check Process
- Privacy is respected and underwear is to be left on
- Skin will be examined with a magnifying lamp first, then a dermatoscopy is performed
- Any spots of interest are recorded and analysed or excised if need be
- If you would like a limited check up for whatever reason, we can examine the upper half only, exposed areas only or even just a single spot
- Skin in the genital areas is not routinely examined, however the doctor should examine any suspicious lesions
- Treatment will usually be carried out at the time of consultation e.g. biopsy or perhaps cryotherapy for sunspots
- Surgical excisions, however, will usually be scheduled for a separate appointment
- Total body photography may be recommended if you are an appropriate high-risk patient and this is arranged at a separate appointment
