Surgical Dermatology


We know any type of surgical dermatology procedure can be scary. That’s why we work with each patient individually to make sure you understand your procedure and feel comfortable.

In the last few years, there have been many clinical advances and innovations in the field, so that most dermatologic surgeries are now minimally invasive and require only local or regional anesthesia. The results are improved patient satisfaction and safety, as well as a much-reduced recovery period.


Dr. Collins is proud to be on the forefront of technology implementation, and uses the PicoSure® laser – the  most advanced laser of its kind in the world – to perform many of our surgical procedures.
