Services

All surgical procedures are performed using local anaesthesia. General anaesthetics are not available.

Full Skin Checks

The heart of our service is a COMPLETE SKIN EXAMINATION. Unlike SOME clinics, our skin checks are from head to toe including the scalp, nails, palms & soles. Aided by our dermoscopic skin cameras. It generally takes 10-15 minutes.

Skin biopsy

A method used to test a suspicious skin lesion, rash or mole. Local anaesthetic is injected under the lesion or area of concern. Lesions can be completely excised (cut out), shaved off the surface, or sampled with a punch biopsy instrument. The sample is now sent to the pathologist for testing.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) - for BCC.

This is a treatment for some non-aggressive types of BCC’s. A topical treatment called ALA, is applied to the skin cancer for 3 hours using a dressing. After 3 hours, the dressing is removed and the ALA is activated by a PDT red light source. This takes 8 minutes. The reaction begins within hours and lasts about 7 days.
