This test will allow to investigate any spots or areas of your skin that you might be concerned about.
Your physician will carry out this examination and may require the use of a dermatoscope that uses polarised light and optically magnifies the size of skin lesions tenfold. Using pattern analysis, your physician will be able to determine if further diagnostic testing may be needed. This could be a scraping or culture to look for microorganisms, or a biopsy, which is the removal of a small sample of skin for microscopic examination by a pathologist. A diagnosis is made based on the findings, and treatment is recommended. Please let your physician know if there are any spots or areas on your skin that you would like them to examine.
If you have any questions please let us know at any point and we will help you find the answer you need.
