PDT – Actinic Keratosis Treatment
We are pleased to offer photodynamic therapy for the treatment of actinic keratosis (pre-cancerous legions of the skin). This FDA approved treatment is performed in the office using a photoactive agent and a blu-light source. It is an alternative to traditional therapies such as liquid nitrogen or patient-applied topical creams.
Skin cancer is the most prevalent of all cancers. It is estimated that more than one million Americans develop skin cancer every year. Sun avoidance is the best defense against skin cancer. Over exposure to sunlight (including tanning) is the main cause of skin cancer especially when it results in sunburn and blistering. Our doctors provide regular comprehensive skin exams of all skin surfaces for malignant and premalignant lesions.
Mole Analysis and Removal
Everyone has moles, sometimes 40 or more. Most people think of a mole as a dark brown spot, but moles have a wide range of appearances. We perform regular skin checks to screen moles and other lesions of the skin and evaluate whether or not these lesions appear healthy and normal.
