If you have one or a few spots of concern that are easily accessed, then you may only need to expose that area for the doctor to assess them clinically.
To do a full body check or total body photography, you will be required to undress to your underwear to allow access to your skin for examination by the doctor. Unless you tell us that there are suspicious spots in the breast, genital or backside areas the doctor will not examine these regions. Your privacy will be the utmost importance and respected.
So that the skin check can be performed thoroughly, it is recommended that you skip the make up prior to attending the clinic please, and also have any nail polish removed. This means that the doctor has the clearest picture of your skin possible, uninhibited by foundation or other make up.
How we use Technology
To support the expertise of our doctors, we have invested in an advanced artificial intelligence based software system – DermEngine™.
This system provides a secure, cloud-based storage of images taken during skin checks or whole body photography, and applies analytics to the lesions and supplements the doctor’s clinical decision making. It is an amazing system that also allows for easy tracking of spots, with side by side analysis assessing if any lesions have changed shape or size over time which may indicate a suspicious change to investigate.
Our specialists are trained to use the latest DermEngine Software, which is a highly effective and detailed tool to accurately detect any skin abnormalities from early stages.
The software is a comprehensive tool that assists us in capturing, documenting and reviewing your skin images with the support of smart tools on DermEngine.
