Consultations with a Dermatologist are available
For diseases of the skin, hair and nails and general dermatological disorders
A GP referral is not required and advanced skin surgery is available for lesion and skin cancer removal.
Consultations for mole checking include an assessment of risk factors, a full skin survey to include not just mole assessment but all types of skin cancer and sun damage.
Education is then given about skin protection in the sun and how to examine and monitor your own skin.
At Southface Skin Clinic, the whole body is screened, by a Dermatologist for signs of sun damage, precancer and skin cancer. Dr. Helen Robertshaw is a Skin Cancer Clinician for Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals and performs advanced surgery for skin cancer, known as Mohs surgery.
We identify your risks and educate you on how to look after your skin and what signs to look out for in the future. Treatment with cryotherapy is available for some benign lesions and if a mole or lesion does need to be removed that can be undertaken by experienced dermatological surgeons.
