Dermatological Medical Procedures
Cryosurgery can be defined as a special treatment for precancers. The medical term for these precancers are actinic keratosis. These can present as pink and rough scaly spots on sun-exposed areas that recur or don’t resolve. Sometimes these spots are painful, itchy or have a propensity to bleed. This condition is sun damage and it is very difficult to treat, but with new cryosurgery procedures, patients can now leave our office the same day with minimum pain and great results.
Cryosurgery is your traditional skin treatment that involves a quick freeze. Skin conditions such as warts, actinium keratosis, and solar lentigo are easily treated in this manner. The whole procedure takes quite a short duration of time. You may only find yourself feeling a wee bit of pain as the process of healing takes place but this is just a small price to pay for the enormous benefits that are achieved in the end.
Elimination of skin cancer occurrences in people is also part and parcel of the crucial services that are offered by Alta Dermatology. Even if your trouble spots are benign, Doctor Wang can remove them for you. The process takes no more than thirty minutes and leads to minimal scarring. A small incision is made, and the trouble area is removed. There is not much pain involved with these procedures; a local anesthesia is more than sufficient for most patients.
