Surgical Dermatology Services by Springville Dermatology
For added convenience, and to offer a more cost-effective treatment option, patients needing adult or pediatric surgical dermatology procedures can have them performed right in our office. Patients will find a sterile, safe, and relaxing environment for surgical procedures to be done efficiently. Our surgical dermatology services include the following:
Moles are normally harmless and quite common for most skin. These growths are usually tan or brown in color, sometimes raised, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Over time, some moles may change appearance, becoming lighter in color, or bigger. Another treatment is to remove your mole by surgical excision or shave excision to stop irritation, to improve appearance, or to prevent the mole from becoming cancerous. A change in a mole can indicate a serious problem. If you have a mole that has become larger, changed color, is asymmetric, seems to have developed an irregular border, itches, crusts, bleeds, or is painful, consult Dr. Peterson immediately.
Cyst & Lipoma Excision
Cysts are small closed sacs that contain fluid or solid material. Surgical removal helps to avoid problems, such as inflammation and infection, and improves cosmetic appearance. Lipomas differ from cysts in that they are primarily composed of soft, fatty tissue. Lipomas are typically benign, easily removable and painless. We can remove both cysts and lipomas to avoid problems related to inflammation, infection, appearance, or other discomfort.
Scars can result from acne, chickenpox, accidents, or previous surgery. Dr. Peterson will examine your scar to determine the best treatment plan. He and his technicians can often improve them with dermabrasion, or by using soft tissue fillers like collagen, collagen enhancers, hyaluronic acid, or fat injected into the skin to fill depressions. A complete excisional revision may also be used. We can surgically level raised scars or flatten them with corticosteroid injections.
Warts are growths of thick layers of skin that are caused by a virus. People of all ages may develop warts anywhere on the skin with varying degrees of discomfort. Warts may be removed by cryosurgery, curettage, electrosurgery, injections with chemicals, or laser surgery.
Skin Cancer Excision
We can remove some non-melanoma skin cancers, such as basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas, using a standard excision. This procedure removes the skin cancer as well as a small portion of the healthy tissue surrounding it. We then close the area using stitches or, if the incision is large, a flap or skin graph.
Acne Scar Reduction
This procedure can typically improve the way acne scars look by changing the size, depth, or color. However, no scar can ever be erased completely, and no technique will return the scar to its normal, uninjured appearance. Patients are pleasantly surprised by how much smoother and lighter their skin looks after an acne scar reduction. Dr. Peterson will suggest the best approach after an examination.
