Some skin problems require surgery, but there is no need to go to the hospital with several weeks of downtime. We can perform most surgeries in our office, and you can return home the same day. Most dermatologic surgeries are minimally invasive and only require local or regional anesthesia, reducing the downtime and recovery period.
Skin Cancer Treatment – We have Mohs surgeons in-house to diagnose and treat skin cancer with micrographic surgery or regular excisions if a patient requires more advanced surgery for treatment. Micrographic surgery is a procedure designed to treat and solve a patient’s skin problem resulting in minimal removal of skin tissue. For the duration of the medical condition, our trained specialists will be along with you providing personalized and professional care from beginning at your initial consult to the follow-up care at the end. In our office, some common surgical treatments are Mohs micrographic surgery, skin cancer excision, ear lobe repair, Pathology, and more.
Ear Lobe Repair – Stretched or torn earlobes usually happen from trauma or gauging. Trauma stretches the original piercing to an overly large hole or completely splits the earlobe. Earlobe repair for stretched or torn earlobes is a minor and straightforward surgical procedure. The surgery is completed on an outpatient basis, and a full recovery only takes about a week or two. Most surgeries are completed within one day.
Proper skincare is vital. Cosmetic dermatology has evolved exponentially over the last decade. Today, various highly effective and safe skincare treatments are available, such as chemical peels, hair removal, fillers, and Botox. Our highly qualified physicians provide a wide range of cosmetic services specifically tailored to every patient’s needs. Along with filler and Botox injections, laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and laser resurfacing, we also offer Zeltiq CoolSculpting services. Every patient that comes into Derick Dermatology received the highest quality of cosmetic, medical, and surgical care and services.
Laser Hair Removal – If you are not happy with tweezing, shaving, and waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal is an option to consider. Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the U.S. Laser beams concentrated light into a hair follicle so that it absorbs light and gets destroyed. The results are fast-acting and long-lasting than shaving, tweezing, or waxing. In most cases, laser hair removal can last up to several months.
CoolSculpting – Cleared by the FDA, this treatment is a non-invasive fat reduction technique to treat bulges and unwanted fat in certain areas of the body. When specific body areas go unaffected by diet and exercise, CoolSculpting is a great option to eliminate that unwanted fat caused by excess fat storage. Our board-certified dermatologists are trained to use this procedure to target fat under the chin or jawline along with many lower areas such as the back, upper arms, and abdomen.
