Benefits of Total Body Photography

Total Body Photography offers a number of advantages when it comes to skin checks

Early Detection

Skin cancer is most treatable when detected in its early stages. Total Body Photography captures detailed images of your skin, enabling doctors to identify subtle changes over time.

Comprehensive Monitoring

Total Body Photography provides a complete view of your skin, making it easier to monitor any changes in moles, new moles or other skin lesions, which may be indicative of skin cancer development.

Reduced Anxiety

Regular skin checks can provide peace of mind. Knowing that your skin is being closely monitored reduces the anxiety associated with Skin Cancer risk.


Having a photographic record of your skin is great for tracking changes and for reference during medical consultations. This visual history is particularly helpful for doctors when evaluating the possibility of skin cancer.

Recommended frequency

The recommended frequency for a Total Body Photography for skin checks varies depending on your individual risk factors and medical history.


In general, it is advisable to have an initial Total Body Photography session, followed by regular annual or 2 yearly check-ups. High-risk individuals, such as those with a personal history of skin cancer or a considerable number of moles, or who may be immune compromised may require more frequent assessments.


It is essential to discuss your specific needs and concerns with your Doctor to determine the most suitable frequency for your skin checks and TBP.


The cost of the Total Body Photography can range between $160.00 - $200.00 with a Medicare rebate between $81.10 - $118.00, depending on the length of time of the consult. It is worthwhile investment in your health and the expense is relatively modest, when compared to the potential benefits of early detection and treatment of skin conditions.
