What does mole mapping involve?
Mole mapping involves a specialized computer taking photos of your entire body and then combining these photos into a complete image of your body to record the location and size of your moles. This baseline image is then compared to your whole body photograph during your follow-up visit.
How long will it take and what to expect?
A Mole map Skin Check takes around 30 minutes, and you can expect a Full Body Follow-up to take around 45 minutes
How to prepare for a mole mapping?
Dry skin can make spots harder to examine. We recommend that you keep your skin well moisturised. Ideally, you should moisturise any dry areas daily for a week or so before your skin check.
