Skin check / mole check
New or changed birthmarks are not an aesthetic problem, but can also be a melanoma – one of the most malignant types of skin cancer. Recognized in time and surgically removed, serious consequences for the patient can be avoided. It is therefore advisable to have a skin or birthmark check by a dermatologist once a year. This is best carried out using a digital reflected -light microscope , whereby suspicious skin changes can be documented photographically and, if necessary, compared exactly at a later point in time. Depending on the skin type and individual inclination, there may be a particularly large number of birthmarks or pigment lesions. In order to keep track of this, we offer digital full body mapping: The entire body is photographed using a high-resolution camera and the individual lesions are “catalogued”. At the next skin check, the device detects new or changed birthmarks, which can then be examined more closely with the reflected light microscope.
