Some of the most common forms of dermatologic surgery include mole removal, wart treatments, skin tag removal, and skin cancer surgery. Additionally, lipomas, cysts, and other benign skin growths can be treated with dermatologic surgery. Click the button below to learn more about dermatologic surgery.

Early detection of a skin condition is an important step to creating an effective treatment plan. Learn more about our pediatric dermatology services by clicking the button below.
Acne treatments can help reduce the severity of acne breakouts, improve the appearance of acne scarring, and help prevent future breakouts from occurring. While acne may commonly be thought of as a condition that mainly affects adolescents, adult acne is very common and can be frustrating. Our acne treatment plans can help treat active acne breakouts and also improve the appearance of discolored or scarred skin from a previous acne breakout. Depending on the severity of your acne, our dermatologist and dermatology team may recommend topical creams or laser treatments. Click the button below to learn more about acne treatments.
Eczema, which is also known as atopic dermatitis, is a skin condition that causes inflammation and skin rashes. Rashes typically occur on the arms or legs but can develop anywhere. An eczema rash typically causes small, raised red bumps to form on the skin, causing intense itching, which can often be worse at nighttime. Eczema treatments can help bring relief to eczema symptoms, reducing the overall severity of an outbreak and helping soothe irritated skin. Some common eczema treatments include topical creams, oral medications, or light therapy. To learn more about eczema and eczema treatments, click the button below.
Rosacea is a skin condition that is denoted by red facial skin with swollen red bumps and visible blood vessels. Rosacea can cause an acne-like outbreak, which can cause a patient to think they are suffering from chronic acne and seek the wrong treatment. Rosacea requires a specialized treatment plan that is designed to improve the appearance of flushed, sensitive, and dry skin. There are 4 main types of rosacea, which are referred to as rosacea subtype 1, rosacea subtype 2, rosacea subtype 3, and rosacea subtype 4. Each subtype of rosacea causes various symptoms and requires specialized treatments. Learn more about rosacea and rosacea treatments by clicking the button below.
Psoriasis causes a red rash to develop that may appear patchy, scaly, or cracked in appearance. Apart from a rash, psoriasis can also result in other uncomfortable symptoms, including thickened nails, painful or inflamed joints, and skin that is prone to cracking or bleeding. Psoriasis treatments can improve these symptoms and help to achieve an even, healthier complexion. Medication, topical creams, or laser treatments are often prescribed by our dermatologist and dermatology team to reduce the severity of a psoriasis outbreak.

CONTACT DERMATITIS TREATMENT
Contact dermatitis causes a rash to form after the skin has come into contact with a certain material or irritant. Some of the most common causes of contact dermatitis are coming into contact with poison ivy, poison oak, or poison sumac. Contact dermatitis can also develop after using a new soap, cosmetic, or fragrance. Certain jewelry may also irritate your skin and cause a rash to develop. Treatment of contact dermatitis depends on what caused the rash to develop and the severity of the rash.

MOLE & SKIN LESION REMOVAL
Mole and skin lesion removal can remove moles and other blemishes for medical or cosmetic reasons. While the majority of moles are non-cancerous (benign), some moles can be a sign of skin cancer. Moles can also be pre-cancerous, which means that they are currently non-cancerous but may develop into cancer later. In cases such as this, our dermatologist and dermatology team may recommend removal of the mole or skin lesion to maintain proper skin health. Moles and skin lesions can also be removed for cosmetic concerns if the patient desires. Click the button below to learn more about mole and skin lesion removal.
SKIN CANCER SCREENING
Annual skin cancer screenings are performed by our dermatologist and dermatology team to detect cancerous moles in their earliest stages. During a skin cancer screening, our dermatologist and dermatology team will examine all areas of the face and body for unhealthy moles. Skin checks can allow for an effective and timely treatment. If a cancerous growth or mole is found, we are fully equipped to perform a skin cancer treatment or Mohs surgery to remove the growth.

SKIN CANCER TREATMENTS
Skin cancer treatments can remove cancerous growths from the skin in order to maintain a healthy complexion. Cancerous moles are typically asymmetric, change in color, grow over time, have an irregular border, and are larger than a quarter of an inch. Our skin cancer doctor and dermatology team can examine a mole and determine if it is cancerous through a biopsy. Skin cancer treatments can effectively treat and remove all cancerous cells while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. Click the button below to learn more about skin cancer treatments.
Mohs surgery is an effective skin cancer treatment for basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. When performing Mohs surgery, our dermatologist and dermatology team will carefully and precisely excise the cancerous growth by removing thin layers of cancerous tissue. Because unhealthy skin is removed layer by layer, it allows for the removal of all cancerous cells while preserving as much healthy skin as possible. Following Mohs surgery, patients can choose to undergo scar revision that can conceal any sign of an incision or Mohs defect. To learn more about Mohs surgery, click the button below.
