Dermatologic Surgery Information
Dermatologic surgery handles the diagnosis and treatment of medically necessary and cosmetic conditions of the skin, hair, nails, veins, mucous membranes and adjacent tissues by various surgical, reconstructive, cosmetic and non-surgical methods. The purpose behind dermatologic surgery is to repair and/or improve the function and cosmetic appearance of skin tissue.
Due to breakthroughs in research, clinical advances and instrumentation innovations created by skin surgery experts, the majority of dermatologic surgeries are now minimally invasive and require only local or regional anesthesia. This has built superior patient safety while reducing downtime and the recovery period. In addition, new developments and the latest techniques are constantly improving the results of many well established skin surgery procedures.
Examples of dermatologic surgery procedures include anti-aging treatments, injectable and implantable soft tissue fillers, botulinum toxin treatments, correction of acne scarring, chemical peeling, vein therapy, hair restoration, laser surgery, skin cancer treatment and reconstructive flaps and grafts.
