Being based in Ibiza we are more aware than ever how important it is to look after our skin. Skin cancer is now the most common form of cancer in the UK.
We have invited the lovely Jonny from EpicDermis Medical to run a mole clinic for the week. This is Pioneering mole detection clinic & the first of its kind in London
This has recently been featured on the TV, in the papers and Dr Jonny was also recently featured in The Handbook's top 11 celebrity doctors so we are very excited to say that he will be joining us in Ibiza this October offering his services to check any moles that you have that you're worried about to give you peace of mind.
The initial consultation is £80, if you need any moles scanned the first mole is £20, all subsequent moles scanned are £75.
Here is a little more information, please drop us an email if you would like any more info.
What is SIAscopy™?
Spectrophotometric Intracutaneous Analysis (SIA) is a fast, non-invasive and completely safe method provides color bitmaps called SIAscans™ that show the relative location of blood, collagen and pigment. It is easy to perform and allows examination of skin lesions. SIAscopy™ understands the way that light interacts with the skin; the manner in which it scatters or bounces, the amount absorbed by cells and other structures along with the different changes in wavelength or color. The SIAscope™ provides color bitmaps called SIAscans™ that show the relative location of blood, collagen and pigment.
How does Siascopy™ work?
MoleMate™ and SIMSYS™ both use the Siascope™ handheld scanner. When the scanner illuminates the skin, some of the light is reflected and scattered from the surface. The remainder is transmitted into the top layers of the skin. Varying fractions of the incoming light are then firstly absorbed by the pigment in the epidermis before entering the dermis, where they are absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood vessels. Scattering also occurs in the dermis when the light interacts with the collagen, resulting in a portion of the light being remitted back to the surface. By interpreting the combination of wavelengths that are received back by the SIAscope™ and is then able to produce SIAscans™; these are generated by referring to inbuilt proprietary mathematical models of skin optics. MoleMate™ is then able to present the user with the generated SIAscans™ for interpretation by the medical professional.
