Total Body Photography

Total Body Photography and Dermoscopy offers the earliest and most accurate skin cancer diagnosis. The technology revolutionises skin checks by creating an accurate map of your skin in less than five minutes. The resulting set of high-resolution photos is used as a reference for follow-up skin exams. It provides the most precise comparisons available today, allowing our doctors to detect new and changed moles and leading to the early detection of skin cancer.

At Gardens Skin Cancer Centre, we use the revolutionary FotoFinder skin imaging system to take a series of digital images of your whole skin surface, producing detailed images to deliver the best patient outcomes.

The FotoFinder Total Body Photography system speeds up the process of comparing and evaluating total body photographs by automatically comparing all follow-up photos with the corresponding baseline images and trying to identify new and changed moles. These moles are quickly marked for follow-up evaluation by our doctors. Quick and accurate total body imaging delivers consistent and comparable results and is completely painless.

Full-body 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. With sophisticated software and superior expertise working together for exceptional accuracy, we can reveal the subtlest skin changes and detect skin cancer at its earliest stage when it is most manageable and requires least invasive treatment.

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 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.
