Mole and Skin Cancer Removal
Prevention is the best policy. This includes protecting your skin from the sun and visiting a dermatologist once a year for a skin examination to catch pre-cancerous spots. We provide definitive surgical treatment, including cosmetically-optimal reconstruction, for skin cancer or abnormal moles on the face or body. These outpatient procedures take place in the comfort of our own office.

Why consider a cosmetic treatment?
People turn to cosmetic surgery and procedures for many reasons. Some simply want a younger look. Others seek minor changes—smoother skin, firmer and more consistent skin tone—or address some feature they've never liked. Your decision is personal. Cosmetic surgery will neither fully change your life nor solve deep personal problems. But it may give you the boost in self-confidence and sense of well-being that you deserve.
The best results depend on the conversation you have with your doctor about what your concerns and goals are. So an honest and direct discussion is essential. Our dedicated team of cosmetic surgeons is here not only in expertise and skill but also in confidence and compassion so that you can make the change that suits you. If you feel you're ready to enhance the look and feel of your skin, our highly specialized team can create a personalized treatment that will achieve the look you want. Cosmetic surgery can be minimally invasive with very little post-operative follow-up and downtime. Enhancing your skin, through minor surgery and other techniques, is a popular approach to rejuvenating distressed skin. In our office, we use only the safest methods and state-of-the-art equipment that meets the highest medical standards for your protection and comfort. Whether your treatment is for aging, scarred, or pigmented skin, we offer a variety of treatments. Do take the time to read below for a procedure you think would fit your needs.
Prior to any cosmetic treatment, we will spend time learning about your goals, scheduling options, downtime preferences, and priorities. Then, we will put together a very personalized short and long-term plan to achieve a more youthful appearance. The fee for the cosmetic consultation for new patients is $285 and for returning patients it is $250.

Over the years, your skin is exposed to the sun, air pollution, stress, fatigue, and lifestyle factors such as smoking. It all can affect your skin's texture, color, and tightness. To resurface your skin and correct imperfections, there are many options from chemical peels to dermabrasion. But unlike other remedies that scrape, peel and cut the surface of your skin, Fraxel laser treatment has been cleared by the FDA to safely, gently and effectively resurface your skin from the inside out. That means improved texture, more even tone and smoother skin—all with minimal risks, and without discomfort and prolonged downtime of other procedures.
Sciton Contour TRL®:
Safer and with less downtime than other treatments, this laser system allows us to achieve the spectacular results of the older aggressive carbon dioxide lasers and of the more recently available carbon dioxide fractional lasers.
If you're battling the effects aging can have on your skin, or trying to address it before the battle even starts, Clear + Brilliant® can help. With simple, gentle laser treatments provided by your licensed skincare professional, you can help prevent the visible signs of aging and the overall dulling effects time and the environment can have on your skin.
One 10 to 20-minute Clear + Brilliant® session can leave your skin feeling smoother, younger and give you that “radiant glow” that comes from healthy, youthful skin. Routine treatments deliver lasting results that can keep you looking younger for years to come. With this laser treatment you can go back to work or play the very next day!
A Patient's Guide to Preparation for Fraxel or Clear+Brilliant Laser Treatments
Restylane®, Perlane®, and Juvéderm Voluma® XC: These fillers, also known as dermal fillers, contain a natural substance found in your connective tissue called hyaluronic acid, which serves as a gel between collagen bundles. As you age, your body produces less of this acid, which is one of the causes of wrinkles and sagging. Not only age but also sun exposure will cause facial lines, sometimes deep ones, to appear. All of these are used to improve wrinkles and to restore volume lost due to aging in the lips and cheeks. The choice of filler and technique is made by the physician depending on the patient’s facial structure, skin type, location and depth of wrinkle. These fillers are some of the most studied and used products in cosmetic treatments today, meeting medical safety standards and providing optimal results.
Juvéderm Voluma® XC:
This is the first FDA-approved injectable hyaluronic filler to instantly add volume to your cheek area, correcting age-related volume loss. It provides a non-surgical lift, addressing sunken cheeks and facial sagging.
OTHER FILLERS OFFERED:
- Juvéderm® XC
- Sculptra® Aesthetic
- Restylane® Silk
Botox® AND Dysport®:
These are amongst the most popular cosmetic treatments. Instead of radically altering your appearance, we use these products to soften wrinkles resulting in a significant, but natural-appearing improvement. They effectively reduce and/or prevent crow’s feet and wrinkles between your brows and forehead. The injections are administered in the office, are nearly painless, and the entire process takes approximately ten minutes with no recovery time needed. Botox® and Dysport® are FDA approved and have been used for years, proving their long-term safety.
Sclerotherapy is one of the simplest and most effective procedures for the removal of spider veins available. In this simple procedure, the veins are injected with a solution that causes them to collapse and fade from view. It may also remedy the symptoms associated with spider veins, such as aching, burning, swelling, and night cramps.
Dr. Long performs dermabrasion resurfacing for scars to improve their texture. This highly effective procedure treats facial surfaces, especially areas of the nose that are bumpy or swollen from severe rosacea. Dermabrasion is often used to improve the appearance of acne scars and fine lines around the mouth.
Dr. William Long repairs stretched out or torn earring holes.
Neck Contouring with Kybella
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults at any age, including both men and women. It can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. We have seen incredible results with our patients after only 2-3 treatments with minimal downtime.
