Board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Christopher Crosby is Fellowship-trained in Mohs surgery for skin cancer. San Diego, CA residents trust specialized surgeons like Dr. Crosby for skin cancer treatment with a high success rate and minimal scarring.
Mohs micrographic surgery is a specialized technique for removal of common basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, and some melanomas. The precise procedure is done in stages, while the patient waits. A thin layer of the lesion is removed, dye-mapped, and examined under high magnification with careful attention to tumor margins. The procedure is repeated until no cancerous cells remain.
Benefits of Mohs surgery include:
- Highest cure rate – up to 99 percent for first time lesions; 94 percent for recurring cancers.
- Single visit outpatient procedure.
- Only local anesthesia needed.
- Minimal destruction of healthy tissues for faster healing and reduced scarring.
- No stress of waiting for lab results.
By the age of 70, one in every five people in this country will develop skin cancer, and every hour one person dies from melanoma. However, the prognosis is very good with early detection and effective treatment. Dr. Crosby and his team at Coastal Skin & Eye Institute in San Diego, CA urge you to schedule an annual skin cancer screening.

Advanced non-surgical solution
Wrinkles are invisible to the human eye! Rather, we see shadows and contrasts cast by these imperfections in skin texture. Once, the only solutions for a smoother complexion were facelift surgery or dermal filler injections. Yet, a similar illusion can be created without surgery or needles. It is the Dermalactives Advanced Non Surgical Collagen Solution.
Immediate and long-term results
This formulation fills lines with light-diffusing minerals. It reflects light from creases, making shadows from wrinkles optically disappear. Improvement is immediate. Just stroke the serum onto clean skin and allow it to dry for a few minutes – no needles, cutting, sutures, or scars required.
Benefits of treatment are lasting, as well. The preparation contains essential peptides and other medical-grade ingredients that improve the condition of skin, reducing future occurrence of wrinkles.
