What is the right dermatoscope for you?

We know that the quality of care you offer to your patients is your highest priority. Your patients deserve the best and so do you. To improve the detection of skin cancer, it is important to equip yourself with the best devices available, and that is a DermLite dermatoscope. DermLite devices enable you to differentiate between malignant melanomas, and other benign skin conditions. Every dermatoscope comes with 10x magnification lens, multiple light sources, and the best performance available in any dermatoscopes available. To ensure you’re looked after, every DermLite comes with a 10-year warranty as standard, and our repairs and service team are on hand to help if the worst does happen.

Due to the impact of the global pandemic caused by Covid-19, there has been a large increase in waiting times for patients to see their physicians and resulting in the potential of huge numbers of life-threatening Melanomas not being diagnosed. Our chosen charity, Melanoma UK are taking the public on a journey to ‘find the missing Melanomas’. Aiming to increase awareness and education of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers, prevention and empowering the UK public to take charge of their skin health.

Educating patients and the importance of dermatoscopes

Skin Cancer Awareness Month focuses on the importance of looking after our skin. We know that it’s not just your job as their practitioner, but it’s about educating patients to help ease the burden on you. Skin is the largest organ in the body, and ensuring patients protect their skin from harmful UV rays and educating them about how to perform routine skin checks has never been more important.

Achieve More With The Surtron 120

Achieve More With The Surtron 120

Achieve more with the Surtron 120

The Surtron 120 is a diathermy unit designed for minimally invasive surgical procedures. It offers flexibility with its 5 operation modes:

  • Cut – Produces a pure cut, allowing excisions similar to a scalpel.
  • Blend – Combines the pure cut and coagulation modes into one mode. Ideal for operating in a haemostatic field, significantly improving their field of vision and reducing patient blood loss.
  • Forced Coagulation – Creates resistance in the upper most layer of tissue resulting in superficial coagulation. Enables the removal of surface structures without damaging deeper or peripheral tissues as well as cauterising large surface areas quickly when required.
  • Soft Coagulation – Deeper penetration of coagulation. Bleeding vessels can be sealed without carbonisation using the soft coagulation setting.
  • Bipolar (with adapter) – Cauterise vessels during more complex procedures as well as easily removing raised lesions such as skin tags and warts.

Precision With The Hyfrecator 2000

Precision With The Hyfrecator 2000

For over 75 years, the Hyfrecator has been a top choice by healthcare professionals.

The Hyfrecator is a Surgical Diathermy Unit with both monopolar and bipolar modes. It produces a controlled electrical discharge of high frequency and high voltage, which selectively destroys tissue by the passage of electric current. Professionals experience simple use, precise tissue therapy, and years of safe, reliable operation.

The Hyfrecator allows precise destruction of all types of cutaneous lesion (both superficial and deep) and controls surgical bleeding simply, quickly and effectively.

It also provides controlled tissue coagulation and precise surgical haemostasis using bipolar coagulation.

Six Electrode Types

There are six types of electrodes that the Hyfrecator can use; sharp, blunt, bipolar, needle, ball, and blade. They are available sterile for use within surgical wounds, or non-sterile for use on the skin surface

Sharp tip electrodes and blades are ideal for procedures requiring pinpoint precision and control, while blunt tips are ideal for general broad-based coagulation.

Blunt and sharp tips are colour coded for rapid identification. The blunt electrodes are dark grey, and the sharp electrodes are white.

The Bipolar Forceps are designed to grasp, manipulate and coagulate selected tissue. The electric current alternates between the two tips, reducing the length of the current’s path and producing a precise, controlled accurate effect.

A Ball electrode is used to cauterise tissue superficially and at depth or desiccate tissue using fulguration.

Needle electrodes are ideal for no-scalpel vasectomies, reducing difficulty and reducing chances of infection.

Treatments

The Hyfrecator is extremely versatile and the following treatments and lesions respond well to electrosurgery:

  • Benign moles
  • Dermatosis Papulosis Nigra
  • Epilation
  • Facial Telangiectasias
  • Milia, Comedones, Small Cysts
  • Pyogenic Granuloma
  • Seborrhoeic keratoses
  • Skin tags
  • Spider Naevi / Angiomas, Syringomas
  • Viral Warts
  • Xanthelasma
  • Vasectomy

Getting Your Patients To Check Their Skin Over The Colder Months...

Getting Your Patients To Check Their Skin Over The Colder Months...

The temperature is dropping – It’s certainly no longer t-shirt and shorts weather! The UK has started layering up as the short, cold, darker days are drawing in. With less sun exposure, it is often this time of year that people begin to ignore and neglect their skin. However, winter can actually be the best time to check it. As we know, skin damage from the summer months doesn’t show up overnight and can sometimes take years to manifest itself. It is important that your patients know that their skin is constantly changing and always vulnerable to dangerous UV rays, even in winter.
