Skin check FAQs

  • Myth: Skin checks are only for people who spend a lot of time in the sun.
  • Fact: As Australia has some of the world’s highest levels of skin cancer and UV radiation, skin checks are an essential part of skin health for everyone.

Skin checks are a key aspect of maintaining good health and preventing the development of skin cancer.

Regular skin checks allow professionals to detect any changes or abnormalities in your skin, including:

  • New moles
  • Changes in the size/shape of existing moles
  • Development of any unusual spots or growths

Finding these changes in your skin is one of the best ways to prevent skin cancer—early detection saves lives, with a 99% cure rate if identified early.

Skin checks can also identify non-cancerous skin conditions that may require treatment or monitoring.

Skin checks are recommended every SIX months or at the END OF SUMMER.

Ensure your skin is in good health and not hiding any potential problems with a skin check by our skin doctors.

Delaying a skin check can have serious consequences for your health. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, and if left undetected and untreated, it can quickly spread to other parts of the body, making it much more difficult to treat.

Delaying a skin check or mole mapping can also mean that non-cancerous skin conditions that require treatment or monitoring are left unchecked, leading to potential complications or discomfort.

Early detection and treatment of skin conditions are crucial for maintaining good health and preventing the development of more serious health issues.

It is considered essential not to delay a skin check by many health professionals.

Avoid wearing makeup, artificial tanner or hand or toe nail polish to your skin check. This is so your specialist has a clear view of your skin.

During a skin check your specialist may need to inspect skin under some of your clothes, so wearing loose, casual clothes is recommended.


Skin checks are one of the only ways to guarantee early detection of serious skin issues such as skin cancer.

Over 95% of skin cancers are treatable if they’re discovered early enough, this includes 90% of melanomas.


Typically 15 to 30 minutes. Make sure to tell your specialist of any painful spots or moles, changing moles or new ones.


This is why skin checks and mole mapping are so important. Should a problem be found, our specialist will offer professional advice and the correct steps you need to take.
