Did you know that many General Practitioners have specialised training in skin cancer diagnosis, skin excisions (such as mole removal) and a range of cosmetic medical services? If you have concerns over a spot, lump or your skins appearance generally, it is usually more convenient and cheaper for you to see one of our Doctors who has a special interest in this area.
Skin checks and excisions
If you’ve noticed a change in a mole or freckle, it’s important to have it checked by a Doctor as soon as possible. Even if you feel as though your skin is healthy, we recommend seeing a GP for a skin check at least once per year, especially if you live in a warm climate and spend time in the sun.
While you can attend any SmartClinic location to have a skin cancer check, you may like to click here search through the list of SmartClinics Doctors by their location and special interest in this area. Some clinics offer bulk billed or low cost skin checks too.
Please note that bookings for skin checks require a longer appointment so we ask that you please call the clinic reception to make a booking rather than booking online.
If you would like to learn what to look for in your own moles when checking your skin, and how to avoid skin cancer, click here to visit our skin checks page.
Cosmetic medicine services
Whether you or a family member is experiencing acne problems, or you simply wish to improve your skins appearance, a number of SmartClinics Doctors can help. We offer a range of safe treatment options and skin management packages including chemical peels, topical prescription peels, dermal fillers and injectables. Your treating Doctor will discuss these with you in detail when recommending any service.
