Mohs Surgery

The Mohs technique is a highly specialized treatment for complex skin cancers performed by Dr. Andrew Jun.  Distinct from surgical excision, the Mohs technique involves removing layers of tissue.  The tissue is then mapped, color-coded and processed onto microscope slides. Then, on the same day of surgery, Dr. Jun will evaluate 100% of the tissue margin to ensure that the entire skin cancer has been removed.  Additional layers are taken until all tumor has been removed.  Read more...

Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a special treatment performed with a topical photosensitizing agent called Levulan (5-aminolevulinic acid or ALA) activated with the correct wavelength of light.  These treatments remove sun damaged pre-cancerous zones and spots called actinic keratoses. Sun damage, and blotchy pigmentation are also improved because of the positive effect of Levulan and the light treatment.  Read more...
