Biopsies of Suspicious Lesions

When you find a mole, bump, rash, or another lesion you’re concerned about on your skin, a biopsy is often the best way to ease your mind or determine the best possible course of treatment. Biopsies take place right in our office and are usually done in 15 to 30 minutes. Local anesthesia will keep you comfortable and allow you to safely drive yourself home after your visit.

Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic therapy (sometimes called “blue light therapy” or “PDT”), is a noninvasive procedure that addresses a range of skin conditions. It utilizes a photosensitizing agent (aminolevulinic acid or ALA) and a light source (Blu U) in order to treat conditions from inflammatory acne to precancerous lesions.
