Struggling with a strange mole? Are you concerned about being exposed to the sun and its harmful rays? Or are you simply proactive about your skin health? A mole map with our experienced melanographers will deliver you great results.
What is Mole Mapping?
To assess and monitor both short and long term changes in the mole, mole mapping helps achieve the results you wanted. This technique uses total body imaging to record the skin’s details. This means, at the first consultation, our professional take a full skin history which involves a set of 33 body photographs. Our experts then image any abnormal or atypical moles at 30x magnification, enabling any new lesions to be easily identified during the consultation. Our clinicians will evaluate your skin surface- scalp, fingernails and the surface between the toes. An image copy has been taken during the evaluation which can be provided for a small charge. Based on your history, the type of mole and its risk factor- we will assess you for over 3 to 12 months to assess the microscopic change.
PREVENT – CHECK – DETECT.
We seek to provide Australians peace of mind.
Who CAN OPT FOR MOLE MAPPING?
Mole Mapping, as many may not know, is safe for everyone- even for pregnant women since it only involves photography. We provide you gown to stay covered completely during the consultation and session. We may ask to remove the makeup before consultation and abstain from using moisturisers on the appointment day.
This treatment is excellent for: those with families coming with a history of Melanoma or skin cancer. Those with atypical moles, and history of high sun exposure and more.
Every lesion imaged during the consultation is subject to a stringent quality control procedure. This includes the sighting of a lesion by a secondary senior Dermatoscopist. During the consultation- the images are then evaluated for suspicious features.
The Dermatoscopist will prepare a comprehensive report of their findings which will be sent to your General Practitioner. You will also receive a booklet which contains details of your results.
Should you have a lesion(s) that the Dermatoscopist identifies as requiring further investigation, you will be recommended to a Doctor with qualifications in both Dermatoscopy and Skin Cancer Surgery. You may also visit a Doctor of your choice for follow up treatment, in which case we will support and assist you in any way possible.
