Skin Checks


If you are coming for a consultation with one of our doctors then try to think of some questions before meeting with the doctor so you can get the most out of your appointment. We are here to help and want to make sure you make informed decisions so no question is wrong or silly.

Patients do not need a referral.

Regular assessment of your skin is essential for early identification and treatment of skin cancer.

To prevent skin cancer:

  • Wear sunscreen daily, even if you work indoors
  • Use a niacinamide serum to correct UV damage
  • Consider taking oral B3 supplements
  • Consider ‘field treatment’ – the application of chemotherapy-type creams to areas of skin to target UV damage and pre-cancerous skin conditions

What is dermoscopy?

A dermatoscope is a specialised hand-held magnifying device, and when used to examine the skin it is called dermoscopy. A dermatoscope has LED and fluorescent light and assists in identifying suspicious features in skin lesions.
