Having your skin checked regularly is the first step towards peace of mind for most of our patients. At Batavia Health, we offer yearly bulk billed skin checks for all our patients.
The skin check appointments will take approximately 30 minutes; this allows the nurse to take full body images and for your GP to check specific lesions with a Dermatascope.
On the day of skin check, your GP will recommend treatment if we find anything suspicious.
As part of this service, one of our trained staff perform a systematic total body check and generates digital dermoscopic and total body images:
A doctor will then examine each patient to check each mole and lesion on their skin. They will discuss a treatment program if required, and advise on the best long term management and prevention.
Some treatment may be performed during this skin check appointment if necessary and the patient requests it.
Each total body skin check takes up to half an hour and is advised for everyone over the age of 18 on an annual basis.
