As part of its patient-focused care, the center offers timely scheduling of appointments, a courteous and helpful staff and a comfortable, modern office environment equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center is committed to being an educated and up-to-date resource for physicians in several specialties. The staff of the center works as a team to assist in the management of large or high-risk skin cancers, recurrences and complications. The doctors have participated in numerous fellowships and advanced trainings as well as performed over 11,000 Mohs surgeries and reconstruction cases.
SDLC is proud to be one of Las Vegas’ premier Mohs surgery providers. Mohs surgery is an outpatient procedure used to treat this form of cancer, providing patients the highest cure rate for many skin cancer types including basal and squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma and other rare or aggressive skin cancers. Mohs surgery is unique because it allows the Mohs surgeon to precisely remove skin cancers without removing large amounts of normal skin. The surgeons at SDLC are two of only a few fellowship-trained Mohs surgery certified providers in Southern Nevada.
The doctors are skilled in all forms of invasive and cosmetic dermatologic surgery procedures. Abnormal moles, cysts, lipomas and other growths that are either dangerous or symptomatic can be removed surgically in an outpatient setting without the need for general anesthesia. Other growths, such as moles on the face, scars or other unsightly spots, can be removed solely for cosmetic improvement of the skin.
A wide variety of cosmetic procedures involving microneedling and lasers are offered, which can be used to treat tattoos, wrinkles, brown spots, facial redness, blood vessels, hair removal and acne scars. SDLC utilizes six laser treatment devices, which have been proven to be effective methods to permanently remove unwanted pigmented lesions, sometimes in as few as one or two treatments. The newest of their lasers, the PicoSure provides the fastest and easiest non-surgical, non invasive laser skin treatments available. With cutting-edge pico-second laser pulse technology, more effective treatments are performed in fewer sessions while reducing the risk of scarring.
When it comes to acne scarring, the doctors have years of specialized training with leading experts in acne scarring therapy for patients of all skin tones and types. Acne scarring therapy is a specialized field that is constantly adding new treatments, and treatment plans are tailored to the specific patient to significantly improve the appearance of the skin.
