If you are suffering from skin cancer, you are not alone. Cancer has threatened the lives of thousands of people across the globe. Thanks to modern technology, fighting cancer has become more and more successful. Here at Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Specialists in Palm Desert, California, our doctor, Dr. Natalie Driessen is trained to perform a Mohs Reconstruction procedure, which removes skin cancer cells.
Mohs surgery is a helpful surgical procedure to fight this terrible illness. Depending on the size and extent of the cancer on your skin, scaring could occur. That is why, Dr. Natalie Driessen also is trained to restore the treatment area following Mohs surgery to reduce scaring and help your skin stay beautiful.
Like any surgery, you will need to give yourself time to heal. Resting, a proper diet, and keeping yourself hydrated can help the healing process. There is also scar cream and sunscreen that you can use to help.
