What to expect at a skin check....

It can be a daunting experience. 

Walking into a strange place, with people you don’t know, not knowing what they’ll find, and what the outcome will be.

Even though skin checks are essential, they’re not easy. We know this. 

And that’s why we do everything in our power to make you feel as comfortable as possible from the moment you step through our doors, to the moment you leave. 

But don’t take it from us, take it from one of our first-time clients. We asked them to document their experience getting their first ever skin check at SKIN. 

Here’s what they had to say. 


I won’t lie to you, I was quite nervous going for my first skin check. I’m not usually a nervous person, but something about exposing myself to a someone I’d never met before made me anxious. 

Little did I know, I had nothing to worry about. 

I was greeted by friendly, smiling faces in an instantly calming atmosphere. The receptionists made me feel very welcome and my nerves were instantly dulled. Although, as I sat in the waiting room, the thought of having to show my body to someone still made my palms sweat. 

The time came where I was called in by Dr Ben Tallon. And again, I was instantly calmed by his soft, welcoming nature. 

We sat down and he asked why I wanted a skin check done. I told him I’d never had one before and I want to be on the safe side, and want to look after my body the best I can. 

Dr Tallon also asked if there were any particular moles or spots I was worried about or had noticed. Previous to the appointment I had taken the time to look over my body in those more sensitive areas to see if there was anything to report on. By doing this I was able to direct Dr Tallon to any questionable moles. 

I got into a robe, keeping my bra and underwear on. In order for Dr Tallon to check my back, I stayed standing whilst he scanned my complete back, from head to toe (including my scalp!). He commentated on everything as he went and warned me if he was going to move clothing items. It was a definite comforting approach.

To scan my front, I laid down on the bed. Again, Dr Tallon talked through where he was looking. And by this point I felt completely at ease. 

My feelings of ‘I have to get naked in front of someone I don’t know’ had changed to ‘wow, why was I so worried.’ 

Dr Tallon proved is a highly professional Dermatologist who is medically trained to spot and diagnose suspicious moles. The skin check was over quite quickly and thankfully there were no suspect moles found. Phew.

I walked away from SKIN feeling relieved, comforted and happy that I’d been checked over and officially have nothing to worry about. It felt great and I would go back in a heartbeat. And without all those nervous tensions. 

The vibe and experience I got from SKIN in general, is that they are the best of the best. I felt I was in the safest hands in a building that was built for exactly what they do, taking care of people’s skin. Everything about my experience was a 5-star rating. 

Thanks SKIN, you’ll see me again for my next check up in a year.
