May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month; Dr. Lisa Donofrio and the entire Aria DermSpa staff want patients to stay safe and healthy with skin cancer screenings and treatments in Madison, Connecticut. When skin cancer is detected early, patients have multiple treatment options that can reduce future risks without intense measures or extreme downtime.
Aria DermSpa offers a variety of skin cancer treatments that can remove unwanted skin growths and prevent the spread of this potentially fatal condition. Photodynamic Therapy in Madison is an FDA-cleared laser treatment that treats pre-cancerous cells by first applying a topical medicine and then treating the area with light energy. This combination creates a reaction that kills the pre-cancerous cells and causes them to fall away from the body while the damaged skin peels.
In addition to Photodynamic Therapy, we also offer excisional surgery that removes the affected area as well as some of the skin around it to prevent the spread of cancerous cells. Both Photodynamic Therapy and excisional surgery can reduce your risk while leaving your skin healthy, but side effects and treatment effectiveness can be discussed prior to treatment during your consultation.
Spread awareness of the risk of skin cancer, and protect yourself this May with skin cancer screenings and treatments at Aria DermSpa in New Haven County, Connecticut.
