Here in our clinics, we offer a comprehensive approach to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of skin cancer, starting from thorough skin cancer checks and extending to the collection of biopsies, application of topical chemotherapeutic agents with photodynamic therapy, simple as well as complex surgical excisions (including grafts and flap repairs) and cryotherapy. In the instance of visible scaring occurring post surgery, we offer scar revision, surgically and through different types of laser therapy.
