Living in New Zealand involves facing everything our climate has to offer, and resilient as it is, your skin needs care and attention to stay healthy especially as you age.
Many of us grew up in a world of sunbathing with body oils and had never heard of Slip Slop Slap. Our parents didn’t know to slather us in sunscreen every time we left the house. Recently (2020) New Zealand took over Australia in having the highest melanoma rate in the world!
It’s too late to turn back the clock and undo sunburn damage, but going forward we can protect ourselves. Early detection is the best defence against skin cancer. Over the last 15 years, Chris and Andrew have detected and managed over 1000 cases of melanoma – 99% of these have achieved a full cure – if found and caught early enough melanoma is a totally curable cancer! Early detection is essential.
At the SkinCheck Clinic, we help you monitor and care for your skin. If we find a skin cancer it is highly likely our treatment will mean a complete cure.
