As a result of aging or from birth, a variety of small imperfections can plague aesthetic perfection. Skin tags, unsightly moles, or warts—there are a variety of minor issues that can affect our self-confidence, or potentially lead to more complicated issues. In many cases, the most effective treatment for these blemishes is surgical. Though it sounds invasive, most of these surgeries are relatively painless, and can be performed quickly, easily, with limited to no recovery needed.

At Beer Dermatology, we offer guidance and expert treatment in all aspects of surgical dermatology. At your appointment, we will discuss your goals and present your options for a variety of treatments, including:

  • Removal of skin cancers
  • Mohs skin cancer surgery
  • Removal of benign skin growths
  • A range of laser treatments

We also provide skin cancer screening examinations and recommend that these be performed at least once a year. If you have fair skin and/or a history of increased sun exposure (especially as a young child), we recommend that you do skin examinations every four to six months.

Among the skin growths that we treat in our surgical practice are:

  • Cysts
  • Skin tags
  • Warts
  • Benign skin growths such as seborrheic keratosis
  • Skin cancers including basal cell carcinoma
  • Squamous cell carcinoma
  • Melanoma

Precancerous skin growths known as actinic keratosis are common and are treated with cryosurgery (nitrogen), lasers, photodynamic therapy, or topical treatments. We also have experience with rare skin cancers and have published articles on their management.

Surgical dermatology evolves continuously, with newer techniques and materials used to improve outcomes. We work hard to stay up to date on the latest treatments and can talk you through the options available to you at your appointment.

If you are considering having something removed from your skin, please feel free to ask us about your procedure. We will review the options available to you, and work to understand your goals. Together, we will determine the best course of treatment to achieve the results you are after.
