Our services

Full-body skin examinations

Regular full-body skin examinations are vital for catching cancers before they become serious. Skin exams take about 15 - 30 minutes, and the doctor will start by asking about your skin cancer risk factors and general health. You will need to undress to your underwear. If you wish, we can provide a blanket or gown for you to wear while the doctor inspects your body from head to toe, looking for abnormal moles or spots. We will not examine the genital area unless you have any spots in that region which particularly concern you.

Assessment with dermoscopy

The doctor will closely examine any unusual spots using a dermatoscope. This close-up perspective helps us assess whether a mole is normal or abnormal. It is a completely painless process that has been proven to increase the rate of skin cancer detection. We may also photograph a few spots to monitor changes over time, as this can be indicative of skin cancer.

Diagnosis through biopsies

If the doctor finds a suspicious spot that might be skin cancer, a sample of skin will be removed and sent to a pathology lab to be thoroughly examined under a microscope. This is called a biopsy, and it helps confirm whether the suspicious spot is cancerous. The most common biopsy techniques are shave and punch biopsies, which are both done under a local anaesthetic. A shave biopsy involves shaving off the top layer of skin with a small surgical blade, while a punch biopsy uses a tool like a tiny cookie cutter to remove all the layers of skin.

Skin imaging

As part of our comprehensive approach to diagnosing and managing skin cancer, we can take photographs of your entire skin surface or any suspicious lesions on your body. Changes in the size, shape or colour of a mole can be indicative of skin cancer, so digital imaging allows us to compare changes over time and leads to earlier detection of the disease. Digital imaging is the most reliable means of accurately tracking changes over time and producing potentially lifesaving results as the high-resolution images allow easy side-by-side comparison at follow-up appointments. Using the latest technology, we can detect skin cancer at its earliest stage when it is most manageable and requires least invasive treatment. As new or changing skin spots are the first indication of skin cancer, you can be assured that no melanoma goes unnoticed.

Skin cancer treatments

The treatment you receive for skin cancer will depend on the type, size and location of the skin cancer, and whether it has spread to other parts of your body. We offer various surgical and non-surgical treatments, including excisions of the tumour and surrounding tissue to ensure all the cancerous cells are entirely removed, curettage which is the method of scraping and burning the skin cancer, cryotherapy which is the method of freezing off the skin cancer with liquid nitrogen, and topical applications of creams that stimulate the immune system and destroy skin cancer.

Skin repair and rejuvenation

We approach aesthetic medicine with the same level of respect and credibility as skin cancer medicine. We offer skin repair and rejuvenation treatments for anyone wishing to restore a natural, more youthful appearance to their skin. Our doctors have undergone formal training in this exciting medical field with the aim of providing your skin with a healthier and more refreshed look. Using the latest technologies including injections, light therapy and chemical peels, our doctors will accurately and safely address your medical and cosmetic skin concerns. Treatments can be used to combat signs of ageing, skin cancer, sun damage, acne, rosacea, and other skin conditions.
