The SkinVision Program
Take your first photo
It goes through the clinically proven technology that looks for unnatural early warning signs. You will receive your assessment within 30 seconds.
Your risk assessment
A low risk rating means all clear. Medium risk indicates some unnatural signs: keep monitoring. A high risk rating means to visit a doctor.
Check twice a year
It’s no different than visiting your dentist or even your gym. You put that in your calendar, this is the same, but we’ll help you remember.
NZNO provides you with an exclusive
free 1-year subscription.
“The more people who are made aware of this the better, it saved my life, it could save many, many more.”

<div class=”text”>No, it is not a diagnostic device and does not replace a visit to your doctor. SkinVision helps you become aware of potential skin irregularities that may need timely attention from a doctor. Please note that if at any time you feel concerned or you see that the lesion on your skin is changing in thickness, size, colour, fluid content or bleeding, we recommend you visit your doctor as soon as possible.</div>
SkinVision is available for iOS and Android devices. The app is functional for iPhone 4s and higher and is optimised for iPhone 5 and higher. On Android, it is functional for Samsung S4 devices and higher. If you don’t own one of these devices, you should consider if you can download the app on a compatible device of a family member or close friend.
Place the camera over the mole or skin condition. When the proper conditions are met, the camera automatically takes the photo in the automatic camera setting. If you believe this lesion to be related to something other than skin cancer such as psoriasis or warts, please use the manual camera to take the picture.
- Photos are best taken in natural daylight, however indoors near a window or any brightly lit space will also work.
- Move anything creating a shadow on your skin out of the way, including hair.
- If your photos are coming out blurry, try resting your body on a steady surface while the photo is taken.
- Hold the camera around 20cm from your skin. The in-app automatic camera allows you to make an assessment of your moles and skin conditions to find out your associated risk, while the manual camera can be used for tracking other skin conditions such as acne, rashes, eczema and psoriasis over time.
