This is a technique in which a sharp instrument is used to scrape off the skin cancer and then a small electric needle is used to burn the base.


Excision of a skin cancer requires the removal of healthy skin tissue around it (this is called a margin).

Mohs surgery

This procedure is done in stages, including lab work, while the patient waits. This allows the removal of all cancerous cells for the highest cure rate.

General Skin Exams

A skin cancer screening is a visual inspection of your skin by a medical professional to look for skin cancer.

Topical Chemotherapy

Topical chemotherapy involves the use of creams to treat skin precancers or cancers. These medications include medications like 5-fluorouracil, imiquimod, picato, and solaraze.

Excimer Laser Therapy

Excimer lasers can treat psoriasis more effectively, safely, and conveniently than topical creams or conventional phototherapy booths

Systemic Psoriasis Therapy

Systemic psoriasis medications are taken orally or injected into the skin or veins. They work from the inside of the body and treat the entire body.

Varicose Vein Treatment

There are several treatment  options for varicose veins. Dr. Lin will do an assessment and determine which one is best for your situation.
