When Dr Mitchell performs a skin check, you will need to undress, so wear appropriate clothing. Dr Mitchell will then use a dermatoscope to examine you. The dermatoscope magnifies her view of the skin, which helps Dr Mitchell to perform a thorough examination.
If any areas of concern are identified, it may be photographed for later review, or recommended for removal. When booking, please advise staff you require a skin health check so that they can book the appointment accordingly.
