How can a Cosmetic Surgeon help with Skin Care?

Our dermatology experts not only focus on helping patients from the Sunset and Myrtle Beach areas in South Carolina with in-office services, but we also focus on preventative and post-procedure skin care.  We strive to educate our patients to be able to identify any spots on their body that might be cancerous.  Also, during each procedure, we give patients positive skincare advice, such as the use of sunscreen. Our staff will also provide tips to help our patients know how best to heal after a medical service or cosmetic procedure at our medical facility.. 

How can Dermatology Experts address Skin Cancer?

Identifying cancer in its early stages is among the best things that you can do for your health, and our skin cancer testing services are highly respected in the United States.  Beyond the initial diagnosis, we can perform a “Mohs Rapide” surgery, which is a form of medical treatment that removes cancer cells from the skin.  This cosmetic procedure is thorough and goes further than lesser dermatology services in removing unwanted cells.  If you desire a consultation, our clinic is within minutes of North Myrtle and Sunset Beaches in North and South Carolina.

Here in Little River and the Grand Strand area of South Carolina, as your dermatological specialists, we are dedicated to providing the best cosmetic and medical dermatology to our patients. Medical dermatology is the treatment of skin that has been affected by a single or recurring condition.  By way of comparison, cosmetic dermatology is the practice of reversing the appearance of natural damage to the skin.  For example: Versa®, Botox®, Dysport®, Voluma®, and Restylane® are treatments designed to reverse cosmetic issues caused by aging, sunlight, and other natural phenomena.  Again, we welcome residents from North and South Carolina or those near Myrtle and Sunset Beaches, but we will help anyone from anywhere in the world.  Please give us a call for more information on these medical procedures or with any concerns about skin cancer therapies or other services.
