Dermatologic surgery is the area of dermatology that specializes in surgical procedures and minimally invasive treatments to improve the health, function, and appearance of your skin. Dermatologic surgeons are pioneers in the research and development of many of today’s most effective therapeutic and cosmetic skin care solutions. For example, the art and science of procedures for the treatment of skin cancer, aging and sun-damaged skin, scars and more were investigated and refined by dermatologic surgeons.
