Mohs micrographic surgery: an advanced treatment procedure for skin cancer, offers the highest potential for recovery even if the skin cancer has been previously treated. This procedure is state-of-the-art treatment in which the physician serves as surgeon, pathologist and reconstructive surgeon. It relies on the accuracy of a microscope to trace and ensure removal of skin cancer down to its roots. This procedure allows the Mohs surgeon to see beyond the visible disease, and to precisely identify and remove the entire tumor, leaving healthy tissue unharmed. This procedure is most often used in treating two of the most common forms of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.

The cure rate for Mohs Micrographic Surgery is the highest of all treatments for skin cancer up to 99 percent even if other forms of treatment have failed. This procedure, the most exact and precise method of tumor removal, minimizes the chance of regrowth and lessens the potential for scarring or disfigurement.

Suncoast Dermatology offers a wide array of cosmetic services including:

  • Acne scar treatment
  • Botox: Used for more than a decade, this FDA-approved anti-wrinkle treatment is designed to block nerve signals to the muscles that cause wrinkles. Injection of tiny amounts of Botox into a specific facial muscle causes a local relaxation and weakness, acting as a muscle blockade to immobilize the underlying cause of unwanted lines and thus preventing "wrinkly" expressions. Areas treated with Botox include: vertical lines between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose, squint lines or crows feet at the corners of eyes, forehead horizontal lines, platysmal muscle bands often visible on the neck ("turkey neck").
  • Collagen injections
  • Chemical peels
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Sclerotherapy (spider vein treatment)
