Sun damage, uneven texture or color, scarring, rhinophyma, and broken capillaries can all occur on the nose. Laser skin resurfacing is a precise procedure, which is particularly effective for these problems. Pulses of light remove thin layers of damaged skin, while stimulating collagen production in the skin beneath. New skin will grow and cover the treated area in 1-2 weeks.
Skin Cancer Surgery (Mohs or Frozen Section)
The leading treatment for the three most common types of skin cancer—basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell, and melanoma—is excisional surgery and it is 99% effective in treating skin cancer with minimal risk of recurrence. After receiving a local anesthesia, the tumor, along with a small amount of surrounding tissue, is removed one layer at a time. Each layer is microscopically examined until the tissue is cancer free. The procedure can take a few hours, depending on the size of the tumor, and aftercare usually involves only minimal wound care until healed.
Treating the skin on the nose with multiple treatments of microneedling has been shown to improve the skin’s appearance. It is used to treat acne or surgical scars.
Fillers are an exciting and quick way to shape the contour of the nose. It is done as an office procedure with minimal downtime.
Using water to perform a facial is a new way of exfoliating the skin, leaving it hydrated, plump, and youthful looking. A mild chemical peel or a dermaplaning treatment can be done at the same time to further enhance the effect.
