Skin Health/Minor Surgery
Our doctors and nurses can help with treatment for a range of skin conditions that include acne, management of skin ageing and sun damage, skin cancer and precancerous lesions, eczema and psoriasis. We offer a cryotherapy service, remove skin lesions and tags, treat warts and ingrown toenails.
Skin Cancer Diagnosis using Computer Modeling
We are able to manage and treat most skin lesions at the Richmond Road Medical Centre. If you have persisting lesions of concern please have a check up. Characteristics of lesions of concern include, but are not exclusively, irregularity in shape and pigmentation, changes over time and in some cases failure to heal.
New Zealand has one of the highest incidences of melanoma in the world and not all skin cancers are pigmented. Computer analysis of photographs of lesions taken at the practice, can be used to help predict with greater certainty if suspicious lesions are likely to be cancerous. This service is available to all patients at no extra charge. Dr Anthony Fraser has a special interest and post-graduate training in the treatment of skin conditions.
