Treatments I do / don't do
As a dermatological surgeon most of my work is with benign or premalignant or malignant skin conditions [skin cancer].
As such I perform

Wide local excision of malignant melanoma, basal cell and sqaumous cell carcinomas
Non-Mohs surgery for skin lesions
Removal of moles, lipomas (<5 cm in size), cysts, skin tags
Biopsy or excisions of moles
Shave biopsy, shave excision
Cryotherapy of actinic keratoses
Cryotherapy of warts
Curettage and cautery of skin lesion
Photodynamic therapy for basal cell carcinoma, Bowens disease [intraepidermal carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma-in situ], actinic keratoses.
As of 3.6.17 - I no longer perform any laser treatment on the NHS or privately.
I no longer do any private practice laser treatment for cosmetic reasons.
I DON'T DO
Cosmetic Laser Treatment
Treatment of acne scarring
Thread veins treatment
Scar revision or any scar treatment
Any sort of laser treatment
I have dedicated the past 20 years to skin lesion / skin cancer / acne / red faces diagnosis and treatment.
If you have Psoriasis, Eczema, Urticaria, Itching, Rashes, Hidradenitis or other general dermatological conditions you may wish to see a dermatologist who deals with these conditions more often than I do.
