Mohs Surgery (On-Site Skin Cancer Removal)
Mohs surgery spares the most amount of normal tissue and has the highest cure rates for many non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers. It’s the gold standard of care in non-melanoma skin cancers and is commonly used in the treatment of some melanomas.
Cosmetic Lesion Removal
We offer cosmetic lesion removal of benign skin growths that may include seborrheic keratoses, sebaceous hyperplasia (overgrown oil glands), skin tags, or milia. These procedures may be performed by a board-certified dermatologist, trained medical staff, or a licensed aesthetician.
A skin spot referred to as a “precancerous lesion” is usually a specific sun-induced growth called actinic keratosis. It’s one of the most common issues we see in dermatology, and it’s what prompts most patients to schedule their dermatologist visits.
A biopsy is the removal of a piece of skin to help render a diagnosis of skin cancers or inflammatory conditions. Dermatologists biopsy an area to confirm a diagnosis that cannot be rendered with the eyes alone. We need a microscope to be certain.
Skin Care Screenings
Skin cancer doesn’t discriminate. Anyone can get skin cancer, whether young or old, fair or dark, and it’s the most common type of cancer in the United States. Most people should have a professional skin examination once a year.
Injectable fillers help restore volume in the skin, which can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles that come with age. Injectable fillers have also been used to make thin lips fuller, correct acne scars, and make the areas under the eyes less dark or puffy.
A scar is a permanent change in skin consistency. While a scar cannot be removed and is forever, we can improve its appearance with scar revision surgery. We can treat scars resulting from acne, surgery, or injury. The way we treat these depends on the appearance of the scar itself and what aspect makes it stand out: color, elevation, or texture.
Lasers (IPL, Fractional Lasers, Red Light, Blue Light, etc)
The Icon Laser Scar Treatment is non-ablative, meaning it doesn’t cut the skin. This laser generates columns of heat that go under the deep dermis to cause inflammation. The remaining tissue produces collagen and elastin which work to heal the skin.
Hair Loss (Alopecia)
The cause of male pattern hair loss can typically be summed up in one word – genetics. If you’d like to learn more, we can educate you about the treatment options and possible side effects to help you determine the best course of action.
A rash is an abnormal change in your skin’s texture or color, usually characterized by a red, scaly irritation on your skin. Because of the sheer number of rashes and their subtle differences, specialized training is required to properly diagnose and treat rashes.
Psoriasis is an inflammation in the skin driven by the body’s own immune system. The inflammation in the skin causes red, itchy, and scaly lesions mainly around elbows, knees and scalp. While not contagious, it’s important to seek the help of a dermatologist.
Acne can have a big impact on your life, which is why we take acne treatment very seriously and use aggressive treatment plans when necessary. Our staff is passionate about treating acne to prevent the emotional and physical scars that can last a lifetime.
