Skin Cancer Removal
While skin cancer is not the most dangerous form of cancer, we still advise any patient affected by it to seek out treatment. Dr. Brent is proud to provide quality, effective skin cancer removal in Beverly Hills, delivering results that improve both the health and appearance of his patient’s skin.
Signs and Symptoms of Skin Cancer
Skin cancer can develop anywhere on the body and usually appears as a new or changing spot in your skin. It is important to be aware of any changes, such as an unusual growth, sore that won’t heal, or change in color or texture. Dr. Brent is a respected Beverly Hills physician specializing in skin cancer removal procedures to restore the skin of patients impacted by skin cancer.
How to Treat or Remove Skin Cancer
Dr. Brent’s main skin cancer removal procedure is a safe, effective, and minimally-invasive treatment option for patients with skin cancer. The procedure uses targeted laser energy to remove the cancerous cells, ensuring that healthy tissue is preserved in the surrounding area. Patients experience minimal discomfort during the treatment, resulting in faster healing times and fewer complications. However, we offer several modalities for treating skin cancer and work closely with each patient to match them with the right solution.
In some cases, a quick surgical procedure may be needed to surgically remove a cancerous growth, such as melanoma. In every instance, Dr. Brent uses the mildest method available that will produce the best results, preserving the beauty of your skin while also restoring its health.
What Are the Results Like?
Dr. Brent’s skin cancer removal procedure produces consistent, effective results with minimal scarring or downtime for the patient. In most cases, patients experience complete resolution of their symptoms and see an improvement in the appearance of the affected area within a few weeks following their final treatment. For surgical methods, the cancerous growth is removed immediately, but patients may need to wait a few days to heal before they can fully enjoy their results.
Skin cancer can present in a wide manner of ways, so the results are also variable and depend on each patient’s situation. Before your procedure, Dr. Brent will ensure that you are fully aware of what your procedure plan entails and the results you can expect from it.
Risk Factors for Skin Cancer
While skin cancer can happen to anyone, some individuals are more at risk than others for developing it. Those with fair, unprotected skin may be particularly susceptible to developing skin cancer, especially if they regularly spend time exposed to direct sunlight. Additionally, those who have had a history of sunburns or extensive exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays over time will be at a higher risk of being affected by skin cancer… Dr. Brent and his team will discuss any risk factors you may have been subjected to, helping you plan how to avoid the recurrence of skin cancer in the future.
Normal Moles vs Melanoma
Not all moles are something to worry about, with most of them only having a cosmetic effect on a patient. In some cases, they may be the beginnings of melanoma. One of the key differences will be the color of the growth. Non-cancerous (benign) moles will typically be lighter in color and have a distinct visual aspect to them. However, darker moles are not always a sign of skin cancer, but we still recommend having a physician take a look at any moles that you think might be skin cancer.
