Dermatitis, acne, verrucas, warts, cellulitis, abscesses, eczema, moles and benign skin lesions are some of the common skin conditions our doctors treat.

‍With New Zealand and Australia having some of the highest rates of skin cancers and melanoma in the worldwe take skin health seriously. Our sun is strong and our skin is preciou

Several skin health services are bookable via the app and we welcome both enrolled and casual patients to see our team.

Mole checks

If you notice any new skin spots that are unusual or changing they should be checked by a doctor. 

Our trained doctors will use a dermascope to look for any concerning moles or spots, checking for skin cancer.

We recommend a full skin check is conducted every 1-2 years, especially if you are fair skinned. If you have a history of skin cancer, these checks should be more frequent.

These appointments are done in clinic and take 15 minutes. At the conclusion of the skin check your doctor will let you know if any treatment is recommended. You do not need to be enrolled with Tend to have a mole check done.
