We employ a variety of techniques depending on the size and nature of the veins to be treated: sclerotherapy and laser treatments offer a non-surgical approach for smaller veins.
- Skin cancer
We are experts in evaluating growths of the skin. We encourage routine skin evaluation for the detection of suspicious lesions (including moles) and the prevention of serious skin cancers. If treatment is needed, we provide a range of options for you, including in-office surgery.
- Tattoo removal
It's estimated that nearly 20 million Americans have tattoos that they no longer want to live with. Until now the only procedures available left scarring in the place of the tattoo. With the aid of laser technology tattoos can be removed with minimal damage to the skin. Specific colored light are utilized to remove specific colored inks from the skin. This method allows the laser process to be customized specifically for your tattoo to reduce the amount of trauma to the skin.

- Mohs Surgery
Mohs Surgery is named after Dr. Frederic Mohs, a surgeon who developed the technique in the late 1930s. It is a highly effective type of surgery that can remove skin cancers by excising thin strips of tissue one at a time. After each specimen is removed, it is examined by the Mohs surgeon under a microscope to determine whether cancer remains in the skin, and to precisely map any remaining cancer. If any cancer is left behind, the Mohs surgeon knows exactly where the additional tissue needs to be removed. Due to the precise microscopic mapping technique, only the diseased tissue is removed, thus sparing as much of the normal skin as possible.
