Surgical procedures involve cutting the skin. They are usually performed with a local anaesthetic. After the procedure, the wound is sometimes closed with stitches.


In a non-surgical procedure, the skin cancer or lesion is ablated (destroyed) by freezing or burning without cutting the skin.

Light-based treatment

When light is applied to the skin, it can either destroy unwanted lesions or promote healing, depending on the wavelength and intensity of light.
