What is Total Body Photography (TBP)?

The process of taking high quality images of your skin from head to toe to help your doctor monitor and assess your moles.

Benefits of TBP

There are many reasons why TBP may be a good idea for you. Some of the most important reasons are that:

  • A clear image of moles all over your body will be taken by one of our skin specialist nurses. This can be saved and compared at your next TBP session to identify changes.
  • You will then be seen by one of our Doctors who will attach magnified images of concerning moles to your full body image. They can then compare this at each consult for changes.
  • Our specialised skin clinic staff will work to detect any concerns as early as possible to reduce the risk of unnecessary procedures
  • Is quick! Takes less than 15 minutes
