We provide advanced diagnostic & treatment options with doctors accredited in the field of skin cancer medicine. 

Full Body Skin Check 

A skin check involves a physical examination of the whole body. Generally, a patient removes their clothing down to their underwear. The patient is then seated, and the doctor performs a check of the face, upper chest and arms using a strong light and an instrument called a Dermatoscope. (A Dermatoscope is a handheld instrument much like a microscope that helps the doctor identify any changes to the top few layers of the skin.)



Cryotherapy. Cryotherapy, or cryosurgery (freezing), is a procedure that uses extreme cold (liquid nitrogen) to remove sunspots, some small BCCs and SCCs. The GP sprays liquid nitrogen onto the sunspot or skin cancer and a small area of skin around it.



Basal or squamous cell skin cancers may need to be removed with procedures. Surgical excision is usually performed using a local anesthetic. People who undergo this approach can usually go home the same day of the procedure.

Consult is required at initial appointment, and a quote is provided by our friendly team for all procedures. We do these on Tuesday & Wednesday mornings.



If you are concerned about only a few spots, our experienced GP may consult you on the best available treatment. These are not a full body skin checks, but are priced as a consultation fee. Any skin concerns may be answered and we may provide diagnostic treatment options.
