While most types of dermatologic conditions can be successfully treated through topical medications and nonsurgical treatments, certain conditions may require a more intense treatment approach to relieve symptoms, restore a normal appearance and prevent complications from conditions such as skin cancer, scars, cysts and varicose and spider veins. Most cosmetic concerns of the skin can also be treated surgically, often using minimally invasive techniques.
Depending on the type and severity of each patient’s individual skin condition, dermatologic surgery can provide long-term results through safe and highly effective procedures that are associated with short recovery times and minimal scarring. While patients often experience mild redness and skin irritation after these procedures, they are able to quickly return to normal activities and achieve long-term results after treatment.
Dr. Thomas provides a wide range of surgical procedures to provide patients with the most effective results for their skin condition, including thorough removal of skin cancer and other harmful diseases. The best treatment for each patient will be determined during a one-on-one evaluation that includes a physical exam and discussion of the patient’s goals for treatment.
