Total Body Photography
We are gifted with beautiful weather in Queensland, but we all know too well the damaging effect the sun can have on our skin. The words skin cancer sends shivers down anyone’s spine.
Moles and other skin blemishes will become more visible in the sun, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that you have anything to concern you health wise. Many will be completely safe and pose no danger to you.
Total Body Photography is an excellent way of monitoring your entire body for new mole growth and is a valuable tool for the early detection of skin cancer, especially in high risk patients. A doctor cannot remember every mole on your body between vour appointments, but with Total Body Photography, Revive Cosmetic and Skin Clinic have a record of all your moles at the time of your initial visit. This technique is encouraged to be used in addition to patient self-exams, as patients are more likely to notice any changes to their own skin.
When you return for the comparison photos in 6 – 12 months’ time, the sophisticated software of our Total Body Photography machine compares all your photos and identifies any new mole growth or changes to moles already on your body.
This is the best method available to date for identifying early melanoma growth.
In addition to providing the most accurate total body photography service, at Revive Cosmetic and Skin Clinic we understand and take great pride in comforting you during this time. Our specialist skin cancer doctors provide our patients with the most comprehensive mole-scanning service you deserve.
