The Miiskin App FAQs for Patients
How does the Miiskin app work?
The Miiskin app allows you to take photos of your skin and moles and to later compare them to spot any changes such as a changing mole or a new mole or mark on your skin.
Can anyone with a smartphone use the Miiskin app?
Does Miiskin offer any diagnoses or assessments of my skin?
No, it is not possible to diagnose for skin cancer using a smartphone. To get a diagnosis or an assessment of something on your skin its best to see a doctor or specialist in person. Read more about smartphones and skin cancer here.
Can I show the photos to my doctor?
The photos you take with the Miiskin app are yours and you can therefore use them in any way you wish. But at this time we can’t make any explicit recommendation that the photos taken with the Miiskin app should be used in a clinical setting. We recommend following your doctor’s directions regarding any moles or marks on your skin and how to use the Miiskin app.
Has the Miiskin app been checked by doctors?
Yes. The Miiskin app is dermatologically endorsed by the Skin Health Alliance and frequently recommended by dermatologists and other skin cancer professionals. A critical motivation for recommending the Miiskin app is that it is clear that the app does not replace a medical check.

With the annual plan you will only be charged if you continue on the subscription after the free trial period. With the monthly plan, you will be charged when you start the subscription.
How can I cancel my Miiskin Premium subscription?
All subscriptions should be cancelled where you purchased it.
Please note that uninstalling the app or closing your account will not automatically stop your subscription – you have to actively cancel the subscription.
Depending on the payment method you’ve used, there are different ways of cancelling your subscription:
1) App Store (iPhone): Your subscription can only be cancelled on your iTunes account by following these instructions: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202039.
NOTE: We can’t cancel your iTunes subscription for Miiskin as Apple does not give us access to your payment data. If you don’t have access to your iTunes account, you’ll have to contact Apple Support.
Please make sure to log into the correct iTunes account. If you can’t see the cancel button in iTunes that either means you don’t have an active auto-renewing subscription (it might already have been cancelled), or you’re not logged into the correct iTunes account.
2) Google Play (Android): Log into your Google Play account and follow these instructions: https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/7018481
NOTE: Please make sure to log into the correct Google account. If you can’t see the cancel button in Google that either means you don’t have an active auto-renewing subscription (it might already have been cancelled), or you’re not logged into the correct Google account.
