Non-Surgical Options

 

There are many options to treat non-melanoma skin cancers; at Robina Village Skin Cancer Clinic your doctor will describe several therapeutic options and often give you a choice of treatment that suits your budget and lifestyle.

We offer photodynamic therapy (PDT), cryotherapy, and chemical skin treatments.

Dermatoscopic Accuracy

 Have you ever been concerned a skin doctor is performing unnecessary procedures? You might be right.    

The days of taking a biopsy for every diagnosis are well and truly gone.  Our doctors' diagnostic accuracy with a dermatoscope removes the need for multiple procedures to treat each lesion.
