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 excision is a surgery where we cut out damaged skin tissue. It is a full-thickness removal — meaning we remove all layers of the tissue (epidermis, dermis, and into the subcutaneous fat layer). We then suture it back together with stitches for optimal healing.
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 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.
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.
Dry skin is a very common, benign condition of the skin. Occasionally dry skin can progress to inflammation of the skin (dermatitis). In this case, you may want to visit your dermatologist to discuss treatments that can help improve your symptoms.
