Electrodessication & Curettage (E C & D)

The tumor and any surrounding skin affected by the cancer is scraped off using a curette (harp spoon-like instrument). We proceed to remove the skin until we reach the healthy living tissue underneath so new healthier skin will emerge. This treatment provides great results and is less invasive than many other skin cancer procedures.


Excision of malignant cells

The cancerous tumor is excised with some of the surrounding healthy tissue and is then submitted to our laboratory for the evaluation of margins. Excision has a high cure rate and can reduce the risk of cancer from reoccurring.

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is the most common treatment that involves freezing an actinic keratosis, causing the skin to flake off. Overtime, new healthy skin forms as the treated areas heal.


Prescription Treatments (AK’s Superficial BCC’s)

Chemotherapy for the skin works to destroy mutated cells present in actinic keratoses or superficial cancers. Based on your symptoms, needs and budget, we will work with you to find the best prescription medication for you.

Some chemotherapy for the skin prescriptions include:

  • Efudex
  • Carac

Photodynamic Therapy – PDT or Blue Light (AK’s)

A medicated solution (Levulan) is applied to sun damaged areas and allowed to incubate. After the incubation period, a blue light is used to activate the medication and destroy precancerous growths or sun damaged tissue. This therapy gives us the ability to treat large areas in less time, instead of addressing every individual lesion.
