Mohs Micrographic Surgery Overview

GENUINE, EXPERT CARE

While skin cancer is easily treatable, early detection is key. If left undetected or untreated, it can become just as dangerous as other cancers. Dermatologists recommend regular skin cancer screenings for everyone. It is even more crucial to get regular screenings if you spend time outside, have existing sun damage, or have seen areas on your skin change over time.

Surgical dermatology can also be an effective solution if you have a growth, cyst or lesion that makes you self-conscious, or is something you suspect as a potential skin cancer risk. Many surgical procedures are minimally invasive, and won’t require an extended recovery or time away from your routine. A simple consultation can give you a clearer picture of your skin health, as well as steps to treat and improve any diagnosed skin conditions and symptoms. Don’t take chances with your skin health, make an appointment with your dermatologist to discuss your personalized surgical dermatology treatment options today.
