- 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.
