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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Warts are non-cancerous skin growths that appear when a virus infects the top layer of skin. Although they aren’t dangerous, they are contagious. As with any noticeable change in your skin, it’s best to consult our team, so we can provide treatment options.
Epiphany Dermatology treats fungal infections of the skin, as well as fungal infections in hair and nails. Often, these infections appear as itchy, scaley, rashes on the skin. We can typically diagnose fungal infections immediately by their characteristic appearance.
Sun spots are light brown to tan spots that appear on the skin and are usually from sun exposure. The most common body areas affected are the face, shoulders, arms, and hands. They are usually benign, however, skin cancer can develop a lesion.
Melasma is a skin condition that creates brown patches of skin in areas that get significant sun exposure. Our skilled team members work hard restoring your skin and helping you achieve a smooth, even complexion.
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.
Wrinkle Reduction (BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, etc.)
As our skin thins over time, it creases more easily with muscle movement. Neuromodulator (Botox® Cosmetic, DAXXIFY®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®) treatments prevent wrinkles because they lessen this contraction. With these injections, the toxins stop the muscle movements that cause frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and wrinkling.
