Visit a medical center or partner practice equiped with DermoSafe's solution and services.
DermoSafe's telemedecine exam is simple and non invasive. Dermoscopic pictures of one or several moles are taken at the medical center or partner practice with the DermoClic device. These pictures are visualised by specialist in dermoscopy (a technical method in dermatology used to visualise skin lesions with great precision) in less than 72 hours.
It is not a diagnostic tool, but a method which aims at identifying your suspicious moles which might result in being problematic, at the earliest stage possible. Proven digital dermoscopy specialists assess the mole/s through the captured pictures. If melanoma or other skin cancer is suspected, the patient will then be refered to a partner dermatologist who will be in charge of providing the final diagnosis through a laboratory exam.
DermoSafe enables you to get a quick and efficient medical opinion about the actual state of one or several moles on your body. Should a melanoma be detected at an early stage (by a dermatologist), healing chances are then more than 95%.
DermoSafe's service does not allow itself to give a final diagnosis on suspect lesions because the confirmed diagnosis can only be done by biopsy or excision (surgical act) by a specialist.
Dermoscopy is a new method broadly used by dermatologists since years 2000 which allows to look deeper into the skin. The dermoscopy specialist uses a dermoscope, a device equiped with a magnifying lens and lighting system enabling to see more precisely moles and pigmented lesions.
The DermoSafe mole check is done by digital dermoscopy and via the DermoView web platform enabling specialists to evaluate moles remotely.
