About Skin Cancer Treatment
Skin cancer is a disease that affects the body’s largest organ, your skin. This type of cancer develops as malignant (cancer) cells form within the tissue of your skin. Skin cancer can develop anywhere on the body, but one of the most common places for skin cancer to develop is on the face. Our compassionate associates provide creative, artistic reconstructive solutions while providing exceptional patient care throughout the course of skin cancer treatment at our facilities.
By communicating with you every step of the way, from diagnosis to post-operative care, our team of dynamic healthcare professionals can make your treatment process less stressful and more successful. Our desire is to return form and function to your facial features because we understand the overwhelming impact cancer can have on your self-esteem and everyday life.
When to Seek Skin Cancer Treatment
If you recognize any abnormalities in your skin tone, texture, or freckles and moles, it is important to consult with your doctor. For years, our skin care specialists have been diagnosing skin cancer in patients who didn’t recognize signs of its development. It is important to diagnose skin cancer in its early stages before it continues to grow and possibly spread.
Depending on the type and degree of your facial scars, our skin care experts can minimize a scar so that it blends with your surrounding skin. Our practice offers several treatment options to patients who hope to noticeably improve the appearance of their scars. The treatments include topical treatments, laser treatments, facial peels and skin revision surgery. Although revision surgery yields a satisfying cosmetic outcome, generally improving the appearance of your scar, a scar cannot be erased entirely.
Mohs surgery is a procedure used to treat skin cancer. This surgery involves the removal of thin layers of skin, one layer at a time, until there are no signs of remaining cancer. In doing so, it is not uncommon for the surgery to leave behind “defects” which can range from minimal to very noticeable. The board certified facial cosmetic surgeons at Lake ENT & FPS are skilled in the surgical repair of such defects, leaving the patient with much less obvious scars than might be typical as a result of the Mohs surgical procedure.
