Zenith Medical Centre Our mission is to provide a quality integrated GP care with Functional/Natural & Antiaging medicine. We deliver health care services with human touch. We are located in Dandenong serving Melbourne and beyond.
As part of effort to serve the people of Melbourne East and Dandenong in particular, Zenith Integrative Medical Centre have provided the latest advancement in the Skin Cancer Examination and Screening Program. This is called the Digital Mole Mapping being made possible through the state of the art digital Molemax HD Machine.
This new technology allows us to see 2mm below your skin. The machine also allowed for storage of photos for ongoing comparison seeking for early identification and monitoring of the changes to the skin lesions previously taken.
The use of this revolutionary MoleMax digital scanner has shown there are a number of early warning signs that can be detected in the diagnosis of malignant skin lesions at its earliest stage-thereby reducing guesses and almost eliminate unnecessary skin excisions or biopsies.
The MoleMAX machine allows for a very high magnification with special light frequencies to let the doctor look into the structure of the skin. This technology enables us to scan spots and moles 2mm deep under the skin to determine with great accuracy the likelihood of the presence of Melanoma or other skin cancers. It also has the unparalleled magnification of x 40!
What are the advantages of Molemax Body Imaging?
The magnification also provides greater clarity of the features of the mole, and in some cases, can eliminate the need for a biopsy or excisions.
Now with our Mole Max HD we can visualize the mole more accurately and diagnose with more confidence.

Our Recommendations: Two in three Australians will develop skin cancer before the age of 70. The good news is that 95 percent of skin cancers can be successfully treated if detected early.
A simple check could save your life. We should all check our skin regularly. Get to know your skin and take immediate action if you notice any changes.
If you have fair skin, blue or green eyes, fair or red hair or lots of moles or freckles you are at high risk of developing skin cancer.
We recommend a full skin cancer screening every 12 months and more if you are at higher risk of skin cancers eg.
Cumulative UV exposure also contributes to your risk of developing skin cancer. So if you grew up in Australia, work outdoors or spend lots of time in the sun you should take time to protect and check your skin.
How Long Does the Scan take? A full scan takes about one hour while partial checks can take around 30 minutes. The procedure is completely painless.
How do you prepare for Skin Screening Appointments?
To enhance our ability to assess the skin we request that no make-up be worn for screening appointments. We also advise to bleach any nail paints to give a clear view of the nail and its bed. Moisturiser without sunscreen or tint can be used. Deodorant can be used (it will not affect our screening process).
ZENITH SKIN CANCER PREVENTION ADVISE
Avoid sunburn by minimising sun exposure when the SunSmart UV Alert exceeds 3 and especially in the middle of the day when UV levels are most intense.
Seek shade, wear a hat that covers the head, neck and ears, wear sun protective clothing and close-fitting sunglasses, and wear an SPF30+ sunscreen. Avoid using solariums (tanning salons).
