DermatologyIn 2013 SCDI hired Dr. Julia Ai to work out of the Reno office. Dr. Ai has expertise with medical, cosmetic and surgical dermatology.

LesionsThe procedure takes a minimum of 2 hours but can go much longer, depending on the severity of your cancer. After filling out all the paperwork, the area around your cancer will be numbed up using local anesthetic. Your doctor will then take a small saucer shaped piece of tissue around and underneath your cancer site. The nurse will then bandage up the area and you can relax and wait in a separate, smaller waiting room. During the next 45 minutes to 1 hour, a specialized technician will turn the piece of tissue into a microscopic slide. The doctor reviews the slide and determines if any cancerous cells are remaining. If all the cancer is gone, your lesion site will be sewn up and bandaged. Otherwise, the procedure will be repeated until all the cancer is gone. On the rare occasions, where the cancer lesions are too large to be repaired in our office, expert reconstructive surgeons are recruited to assist us.
Chemical PeelsSerious anti-aging benefits, targeted results. Chemical peels can remove fine wrinkles, age spots and help with acne scarring. Treatment takes approximately 15 minutes. Depending on strength of peel and type of peel, Jessner or TCA, (Trichoracetic Acid), expect redness and peeling for 5 days.

Primary CareAs a general rule, no. If you take aspirin (even baby aspirin) you should stop taking it 10 days before the surgery day and if you take coumadin, it should be stopped 3 days before the surgery. Always let your primary care doctor and our office know about stopping these medicines to ensure your safety.
