Skin Cancer Treatment: Surgical Skin Cancer Removal

Learning that you have skin cancer can be a frightening experience, but thanks to advances in science and medicine, certain skin cancer treatments can treat cancerous moles successfully, particularly if they are detected early. If you have been diagnosed with or are at risk for developing skin cancer, talk to your dermatologist about your skin cancer treatment options, including surgical skin cancer removal.

  • Biopsy: Before your dermatologist removes skin cancer surgically, he or she will perform a biopsy, which can confirm whether or not you have skin cancer and require further treatment. During the procedure, a small section of the skin around the potentially cancerous growth is removed and examined for cancerous cells.
  • Removal: If the biopsy reveals that you do, in fact, have skin cancer, your dermatologist will proceed by removing the cancerous skin cells. Having tested only a small part of the cancerous skin or growth, your doctor may not know the true size of the area that has been affected. The amount of skin that is removed is about the size of a quarter or larger, depending on how the skin cancer has spread, and is done using a tool called a curette.
  • Reconstruction: If and once the skin cancer has been successfully removed, the next step is the reconstruction of the surgical wound. Depending on how much skin has been removed, a skin graft may be necessary to close the wound. As with many other surgical procedures, patients may be left with a small scar.

The "Lunchtime Facial" and Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Also known as the “lunchtime facial,” microdermabrasion is an efficient and effective way to smoother and more radiant skin. Using tiny crystals to smooth away dead skin and reveal new skin cells, microdermabrasion can help to improve skin texture and tone. Talk to your dermatologist about the procedure to see how microdermabrasion could benefit your skin and address concerns like fine lines, acne and age spots.

  • Improved Skin Texture: By sanding off the top layer of dead skin, microdermabrasion reveals a new layer of skin cells and promotes the production of collagen. Even after one painless treatment, many patients see an improvement in skin texture as dead skin cells and dry skin are smoothed away.
  • Increased Collagen Production: The tiny crystals used in microdermabrasion can help stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that provides structure and elasticity to the skin, and as collagen production slows, you begin to see the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sunken skin.
  • Even Skin Tone: If you have dark spots, acne scars or other blemishes, microdermabrasion may be able to minimize their appearance for a more even skin tone. By sloughing off the top layer of skin, microdermabrasion helps to even out your skin’s color and tone, leaving you with glowing, youthful skin.
  • Clearer Skin: If you suffer from minor blackheads and pimples, microdermabrasion can help you achieve a clear, blemish-free complexion. Because the procedure cleans deep into your pores, oil production and resulting blemishes are reduced.
  • Smaller Pores: For patients with enlarged pores due to oily skin or dirt buildup, microdermabrasion can minimize pores to become smaller and less noticeable. Microdermabrasion exfoliates pores, removing excess dirt and oil, and increase collagen production, both of which can result in tighter looking skin.

A Clear Complexion: Dermatology Resources for Further Reading

Many of us go to great lengths to take care of our skin, and a clear complexion can often improve confidence and self-esteem. Sometimes, though, stress, the environment and skin conditions can cause dermatological damage or blemishes. If maintaining clear and healthy skin has been a challenge, talk to your dermatologist about available treatments and procedures to restore a radiant complexion.

  • Designed to treat a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles and blemishes, laser skin resurfacing uses concentrated beams of light to remove patches of damaged or irregular skin. Learn more about laser skin resurfacing and who qualifies as a candidate with this WebMD guide.
  • An alternative treatment for minimizing wrinkles is Botox, an injectable that relaxes the muscle to prevent the formation of facial wrinkles and creases. Read more about the benefits of Botox, its uses and the results it can deliver.
  • Rosacea, also called “adult acne”, is a skin condition that can be painful and embarrassing. Although a cure does not currently exist, there are rosacea treatments that can help patients control breakouts and manage the condition.

Botox Injections: Common Treatment Areas

Despite regular use of sunscreen, creams and lotions, wrinkles and fine lines can still appear on the face. If your appearance makes you look or feel older than you are, talk to your dermatologist about Botox treatments. These popular injections relax the muscles to smooth out the skin, minimizing wrinkles in these common problem areas:

  • Frown Lines: If you see deep lines between your eyebrows, also known as frown lines, consider Botox as a treatment option. The injections will relax the muscles in your forehead, preventing them from contracting and softening fine lines.
  • Crows’ Feet: Crows’ feet around the eyes often reflects a lifetime of laughter, but some patients find these fine lines to be too revealing of age. Botox can be used to smooth out these lines, creating a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
  • Chin Dimples: Some men and women with chin dimples use Botox as a way to achieve a smoother and fuller chin. A treatment with Botox injections can help smooth out the skin for a more even complexion.
  • Smokers’ Lines: Fine lines around the mouth, also known as smoker’s lines because they appear frequently on those who smoke, can make your lower face look aged and tired. Botox can smooth out the skin around your mouth and lips, creating a naturally-younger appearance.
  • Forehead Wrinkles: The horizontal lines that appear on the forehead as you age can create a look of fatigue. Botox treatments targeted at the forehead can flatten out these wrinkles and help patients look and feel years younger.
