There’s a lot of conjecture about who needs to get checked and when, but our golden rule is: “Every Aussie should be getting checked at least once a year, or every six months if you’re high risk”.
We’re happy to debate this, but our main argument is no-one is better placed to check your skin and educate you about your skin health than a professional specialist. Because in those 15 minutes, while you’re (hopefully) having a thorough examination, you’re a captive audience. You can learn about what to look out for, why early detection is so important and why prevention measures are vital. Especially in Australia.
To find these services, we’ve teamed up with the biggest, most updated and comprehensive databases of medical practitioners in the country. It’s called the National Medical Health Services Directory and it’s run by a wonderful team called Health Direct. To use it, simply use your current location or type in your postcode, select the service you’re looking for and hit search. If you have any questions please get in touch.
Also, if you’re not happy with the quality of your skin check for whatever reason, we encourage you to shop around until you are. So many skin cancers go un-detected every year, which is why it’s important to get the best possible service you can – preferably with clinical imaging on a platform like DermEngine.
We’ll send you an email to see how you went and if you have a #SkinCheckVictory, we’d love to share it.
All the best and let us know how you go!
