Imaging all your spots for monitoring your skin health.
Total Body Photography (TBP) is the process of taking high quality images of your skin from head to toe to help your doctor monitor and assess your skin lesions.
Your moles will be mapped to your virtual 3D body map, where your specialist and the system can work together to track any changes over time.
How can you benefit from TBP? It can:
Support imaging of all of your skin lesions.
Early detection: tiny changes can be detected by our software to aid the earliest possible detection of skin cancer
Provide reassurance - identifying a lack of change is equally useful to reduce unnecessary procedures
Take less than 30 minutes, so it's quick and easy
Who Should Consider TBP Services?
Certain factors may increase your chances of developing skin cancer. Patients with any number of risk factors may benefit from TBP services in addition to regular self skin checks. Some risk factors include:

Please talk to your doctor for a full assessment to see if TBP is recommended for you.
What to Expect
1. A trained professional will provide a brief overview of the session.
2. You will be led to a private area to remove your outer clothing. You may also be asked to remove any jewellery, make up and self tanner. Long hair may also need to be tied up.
3. You will be slowly guided through the poses to ensure that our skin is imaged at a comfortable pace.
4. The information will be securely recorded in the system for your doctor to take the necessary next steps depending on the result of your examination.
5. If a doctor finds a suspicious mole, they may take a magnified image of your skin with a tool called a Dermoscope in order to review the mole in greater detail.
Check your skin! Perform a self-exam every 1 to 3 months to help you know your moles and notice any potential changes over time.
Your doctor may provide you with secure access to your data via the patient app as a way to keep you informed of your skin health plan and future necessary appointments.
