Dermatoscopy: the first step in the evaluation of skin lesions
Your skin is a real map, which indicates your state of health, it can also get sick, like any other organ. One of the most revolutionary methods of diagnosing skin conditions, dermatoscopy, is in the Avra service portfolio. The skin needs care and attention, that’s why we encourage you to turn to dermatoscopy when you notice suspicious lesions on the skin.
What is dermatoscopy?

This type of skin examination is performed using an instrument called a dermatoscope, very useful in magnifying and observing in detail the marks, moles and pigmented lesions on the skin.

Through dermatoscopy, the dermatologist can observe, with great precision, the layers of the skin, as a first step in the specialized dermatological consultation. Thus, skin lesions are evaluated according to shape, color and size.

With the help of dermatoscopy, an experienced dermatologist can observe the cancer risk of a pre-cancerous or cancerous lesion – from those of the carcinoma type to melanoma.

Dermatoscopy at Avra Aesthetic Institute is a non-invasive and painless procedure that can last between half an hour and an hour, depending on the case.

When to go for dermatoscopy?
Avra specialists recommend visiting a dermatologist at least once a year. It’s important to pay close attention to your skin health and any signs that something may be wrong, especially if you have fair skin, moles that have changed shape or color, a family history of cancer, or have suffered from sunburn, during life.At the same time, it is necessary to benefit from a dermatoscopic consultation when unusual sensations appear, such as burning or itching, around a lesion, color change, or bleeding moles.During a visit to the dermatologist, with the dermatoscope, features of the skin lesions are observed, such as:
  • symmetry or asymmetry;
  • uniformity or, on the contrary, differences in structure;
  • regular/irregular aspect;
  • the presence of ulcers;
  • the appearance of the edges of the lesion;
  • the existence of cracks, cysts.
Through the dermatoscopic method and the information it provides, the early diagnosis of skin conditions and problems is facilitated, such as:
  • melanoma;
  • basal cell carcinoma;
  • atypical nevi;
  • blue nevi;
  • lentigo;
  • seborrheic keratosis;
  • hematomas.

  • nonpigmentation lesions;
