Surgical Dermatology in Lakeville Minnesota

Center for Dermatology offers a full array of cosmetic and surgical dermatological services to help you maintain healthy skin.



Center for Dermatology provides a variety of surgical dermatology procedures. Some examples include:


Removing a small piece of the skin to examine under a microscope.

Surgical excision

Cutting the skin to remove the growth.

Mohs Surgery

Mohs micrographic surgery is used to treat aggressive or recurrent skin cancers and is effective for most types of skin cancer with a 99% cure rate. When performing Mohs surgery, the lesion is removed along with a very thin layer of skin tissue, which is immediately frozen, stained and microscopically examined for cancer cells. Only the diseased tissue is removed, preserving as much of the surrounding normal tissue as possible. Once the cancer is completely removed, the procedure is skillfully completed with a cosmetically appealing result.

Electrodesiccation and Curettage (ED&C)

Scraping away the malignant tissue.


Using liquid nitrogen to freeze and destroy the tissue.

Topical chemotherapy

Applying a chemical to destroy pre-cancerous and cancerous growths.

Examples of lesions removed by dermatologic surgery include Atypical moles, Benign lesions such as cysts, pre-cancerous lesions such as Actinic Keratosis, and Skin Cancer such as Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, and Malignant Melanoma.
