Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer, more common than all other cancers combined. At least 1 in 5 people will get a skin cancer sometime during his or her life. When detected and treated early, most types of skin cancer have very high cure rates.

Types of Skin Cancer

  • Basal cell carcinoma (BCC)

  • Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)

  • Malignant meloma in situ (MMis)

  • Malignant melanoma (MM)

  • Rare skin cancers

Dr. Alexander Gross and his medical staff are all well trained and experienced in recognizing and diagnosing all types of skin cancers.

Treatment will vary depending on the exact cancer type, its location on your body, and its aggressiveness. We will help formulate the most appropriate, best evidence-based treatment plan for you specifically. Sometimes this involves the use of medications, surgery, or coordination of care with other local cancer physicians.

For example. Botox may be injected around the brow to reduce and prevent worry lines and creases. Juvederm may be injected into the cheeks and under eye area to restore volume. Radiesse may be injected into the lips to create a plumper pout.

SKINWAVE Hydrogenated Facial

Introducing the most advanced water-based facial guaranteed to give a glowing, hydrated complexion.

How Does the SKINWAVE Facial Work?

The SkinWave system hydrates your skin and combats the signs of aging.

SkinWave uses a highly concentrated hydrogen water module. When the hydrogen molecules penetrate your pores, they bond with the oxygen present in your skin cells. This bonding creates new water molecules which are later extracted using radial tips.

By removing these newly bonded water molecules, your Georgia Dermatology esthetician can gently extract impurities and release the active oxygen which causes skin aging.

  • Step 1 – Deep cleanse

  • Step 2 – Detoxify

  • Step 3 – Hydrate

  • Step 4 – Plump

  • Step 5 – Massage
