A dermoscope is a microscope like device used by dermatologists to examine individual skin lesions more closely.

Dermoscopes offer diagnostic accuracy for diagnosing not only pigmented skin lesions and melanoma, but also a whole variety of dermatoses, including infections and inflammatory conditions.

Your consultant will use a small hand held microscope which is placed lightly against the skin. They will rub a fluid or gel on the instrument and your skin before it is used. The gel removes surface reflections from the skin and allows your consultant to see features and structures deep under the surface.
