Some treatments our clinics may use

Mohs micrographic surgery

We offer the advanced outpatient technique for removing skin cancer. This procedure removes skin cancer and as little normal tissue as possible. During this surgery, the physician removes the cancer and then uses a microscope to look at the cancerous area to make sure no cancer cells remain.  This procedure boasts a 99 percent cure rate for certain types of skin cancer.

Cosmetic dermatology

The Methodist Physicians Clinic dermatologists also offer a variety of cosmetic procedures. Laser treatment is available for removing:

  • Acne
  • Age spots, sun freckles
  • Mid-size leg veins

Laser services

We have recently added the Candela Smoothbeam TM diode laser to the arsenal of tools for the treatment of acne. The Smoothbeam laser helps acne by shrinking the oil-producing glands which are enlarged in patients with acne.

Smoothbeam TM  laser treatment can be considered as an alternative to standard acne medications, such as Accutane or antibiotics, limiting the risks of side effects. The Smoothbeam TM  laser is particularly effective in treating acne, acne scarring and wrinkles around the eyes.

Laser hair reduction

Free yourself from the discomfort and inconvenience of traditional hair removal methods. Laser hair reduction therapy offers women and men a safe, reliable and competitively priced option for the removal of unwanted body hair. Our specially-trained, board certified dermatologists can treat nearly any area of the body using a state-of-the-art medical laser.
