We are pleased to announce that we now offer MoleMap – one of the most trusted and thorough mole mapping technologies in the world. With skin cancer being so prevalent in Australia (current statistics suggest 2 in 3 people will develop it in their lifetime), it is becoming increasingly important to get regular mole checks and monitor your skin for changes.
MoleMap is a very comprehensive mole scanning technology that offers full body peace of mind. It can detect skin cancer early by using Total Body Photography, Dermoscopy (magnified inspection of skin lesions) and Sequential Dermoscopy (monitoring of moles over time). Basically, all medical speak aside, it is the only service that uses these 3 requirements along with specialist dermatologist diagnosis as standard for all patients.
The procedure is non-invasive and does not hurt. It is also safe for pregnant women. Your mole mapping will be performed by our skin cancer specialist who will undertake a full body MoleMap, which includes a thorough examination of your skin, total body photography and an in-depth analysis and imaging of your moles to create a baseline of what’s normal for you. The whole experience takes about an hour. Mr Mutimer is also available for follow up consultation should your skin assessment show any abnormalities that require further checking by a specialist.
How much does MoleMap cost?
The cost varies according to the type of procedure you have:
- Initial Full Body Mole Map $375
The one hour initial consultation is an extremely thorough procedure and is designed to provide you with accurate and timely diagnoses of all your moles.
- Follow Up Mole Mapping $255 - $320
Repeating the MoleMap procedure on a regular basis (e.g. yearly) enables our expert dermatologists to observe structural changes in all of your moles over a period of time.
- Spot Check $140 (1-3 lesions diagnosed)
You can find out more or book an appointment by phoning Mole Map directly on 1 800 665 362. Their friendly staff will assist you with your questions and can also book an appointment at Brighton Plastic Surgery on your behalf. The service is currently available at Brighton Plastic Surgery every second Wednesday.
