Excision and Repair
A common surgical procedure used to remove various forms of benign skin lesions, like cysts, moles, and scars. It can also be used to treat skin cancer, including basal cell, squamous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma.
Mohs Surgery
Boasting a high cure rate for many skin cancers, Mohs surgery is an excellent option for skin cancer removal in cosmetically sensitive areas that require high cure rates and conservation of skin removed.
Punch Elevation
A procedure used for acne scar removal. It involves intricate removal of acne scars via a specialized surgical instrument. This method allows only the affected area to be removed, leaving all nearby healthy tissue alone. Healing time is minimal, and results are optimized.
Scar Revision
Scar revision can involve treatment with lasers, intralesional injections, cryotherapy, or surgery. With the help of our team, you can dramatically improve the existing appearance of a scar. Scar revision methods vary based on the size, location, and nature of the original injury.
Subcision
An effective procedure for treating atrophic, or depressed, scars, subcision works to free the scarred area from the underlying tissue. A skilled dermatologist inserts a small, specialized needle below the skin’s surface to raise the area back up to standard skin elevation. Little to no downtime is required post-op for most patients.

Surgical dermatology options vary by patient, personal diagnosis, and long-term treatment goals. Your treatment plan is in reach- don’t delay! Please Book An Appointment with a member of our team today to learn more.
