Creating the Ideal Closure Following Mohs Surgery

Unfortunately, skin cancer is becoming more and more common, and we see evidence of this fact every day with the number of patient referrals we have for reconstructive surgery following skin cancer removal.  When a skin cancer (normally a basal or squamous cell carcinoma) is located on the patient’s face or neck, making sure the…

Two Dimensional Laser Facial for Surgical Scars
