Light therapy can be used to treat difficult skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and atopic dermatitis. Narrow Band UVB (NB UVB) offers many advantages over surgery and other light therapy treatments such as working faster on the problem area, less treatments and less risks. Administered in the office, the patient stands in a light box lined with UVB lamps after applying an emollient to the affected areas. The first treatment is usually quite short. Subsequent treatment times are gradually increased until clearing of the condition occurs. Since most skin conditions treated with NB UVB are not cosmetic problems, most insurance companies will pay for light treatment in a medical office.
Removal of benign skin lesions such as moles, cysts and simple skin cancers.
Top-of-the-line lasers remove and treat skin cancers, birthmarks in children and adults, moles and precancerous spots.
Mohs Micrographic Surgery
Mohs micrographic surgery has been recognized as the skin cancer treatment with the highest cure rate. It works by sampling the entire specimen to ensure the entire cancer has been removed and minimizing the removal of normal tissue. On-site testing samples the entire specimen, thereby minimizing the scar. Reconstructive, same day surgery is provided with cosmetic closures such as flaps and grafts.
