Dermoscopy for Cosmetic Practice

Hosted by Dr Tatyana Lapa-Enright and Dr Alina Roser

About the Course

Course Summary
Dermoscopy refers to non-invasive, non-painful examination of the skin with the use of dermatoscope. Dermatoscopes use both magnification and either polarised and non-polarased light to provide a detailed view of the outer layer of the skin which are not possible with the naked eye.  Dermascopic images can be saved for further examination, documentation or for an expert opinion.

Many conditions such as rosacea, melasma, photoaging, seborrheic dermatitis, alopecia, telangiectasia are now routinely treated in aesthetic practices.  All these conditions are characterised by unique dermatoscopic findings. Being able to recognise these finding during simple dermatoscopic examination enables enhanced decision and management planning.

Prior to removal of any skin lesions It is crucial for the practitioner to differentiate between malignant and benign lesions. Recognising a malignant lesion with the naked eye can be extremely challenging. Dermatoscopic examination is a well established, accurate diagnostic tool in differentiating benign skin lesions from non-benign.

Dermoscopy is fast, accurate, evidence-based and can enhance aesthetic practice.
