Local dermatologists perform Mohs Surgery.

For many people who work or play in the sun, ultraviolet (UV) exposure over time can take its toll. Too much UV radiation from the sun can damage DNA in your skin cells and cause cancer. And each time you experience a sunburn, your risk increases.

The good news is early detection means treatment is more likely to be successful. So be sure to check your skin often for any noticeable changes and schedule yearly screenings if you are at risk.

For patients that do have skin cancer because of sun exposure, it may develop on the top of your head, ears, cheek, or nose. These areas are cosmetically important and there isn’t a lot of extra tissue—so it’s important to remove as little skin as possible. Thankfully, Alomere Health’s dermatology clinic offers Mohs Surgery—the gold standard procedure for removing the least amount of skin with the highest cure rate (between 94% and 99.8%).

Because the Mohs procedure is micro graphically controlled, it provides precise removal of the cancerous tissue. Each layer is examined under a microscope to ensure complete removal of the skin cancer while sparing as much healthy skin as possible.
