Skin is the largest and most visible organ! The right dermatology care can improve how you look and feel. In the elderly population, there are many changes in the skin, therefore there is a high risk of skin cancer and skin breakdown. Our highly trained providers will recognize and treat most precancerous, cancerous and skin conditions. Skintegrity is our program that covers all skin conditions in which our highly trained providers will preserve the integrity of the skin.
Our services focus largely on minimizing skin cancer and skin degradation, this allows an improved quality of life for our clients.
We are serious about precancerous skin lesions and sin cancer.
Precancerous skin lesions refer to various dermatological growths that are at an increased risk of developing into skin cancer. Typical precancerous skin lesions include lentitgo maligna, which may develop into malignant melanoma, and actinic keratosis, which may develop into squamous cell carcinoma.
Skin cancer is by far the most common cancer in the United States! It is the abnormal growth of skin cells which mostly occurs on skin exposed to the sun. There are three major types of skin cancer– basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma.

We also provide on-site procedures such as:
When a patient has a lesion, growth or neoplasm, a biopsy is generally recommended to help to diagnose such conditions. Our highly trained providers can take a sample of the lesion and send it to a lab for further investigation.
This is a relatively painless way to treat multiple lesions. We use a portable cryotherapy system that reach -70 degrees Celsius to treat a variety of lesions including Acrochordon (skin tags), Actinic keratosis (facial), Actinic keratosis (non-facial), Condyloma acuminate (genital warts), Lentigo (facial), Lentigo (non-facial), Molluscum contagiosum, Seborrheic keratosis, Verruca plana (flat warts), Verruca plantaris (plantar warts), Verruca vulgaris (common warts) and many more.
Skin scraping is a common procedure used to obtain the superficial dead layers of the skin. This procedure is most often used to diagnose fungal skin infections, such as athlete’s foot or tinea infections of the body. In some cases, a mineral oil infused scraping is used to diagnose parasitic skin infections such as scabies.
ED&C (Electrodessication & Curettage)
ED&C is a medical procedure that is used for the treatment of basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. This procedure provides desiccation, coagulation/cauterization, and curettage which removes these lesions from the skin.
