What is skin cancer treatment?
Skin cancer treatment is actually a family of procedures used to treat skin cancer, ranging from surface treatments and minimally-invasive approaches to surgical intervention. There are different risks and benefits of each procedure, and the best solution will be selected based on the type, location, and stage of your skin cancer. Leading dermatologist Dr Jay Mehta has been serving Surprise and Phoenix, AZ with cutting-edge skin care for years. At Arizona Skin Institute, we offer a wide variety of therapies that can help to eradicate skin cancer.
"I love this place. It is super clean and staff are very versed in all aspects of skin care. I have not been here for awhile as I usually come out to Arizpna for the winter months and have been away but am back now and will be booking appointment right away. This place is so very different than many and do not push things at you. They are 100% professional."- B. / Healthgrades / Jan 08, 2020
"Greeted by a friendly staff :) I was pleased to learn that there was nothing alarming or cancerous after a thorough body check. However, the aging process, as well as many hours in the outdoors were evident! I really appreciated the time Becky spent explaining details about my skin, healthier skincare practices, and product suggestions to improve it - sun block being #1! Dr. Mehta was very pleasant and answered my questions (and fears) about any type of face treatment procedures. I feel very confident having him work on my skin to restore some of its lost glow. I highly recommend the Arizona Skin Institute."- M.A. / Google / Jun 11, 2020

"I visited the Peoria location. The staff is amazing! Everyone is friendly, professional, and very personable. I was having a hard day, not to mention, struggling for some time with some skin issues, and one of my doctors really went the extra mile to cheer me on and show her beautiful loving spirit with a friendly hug and positive, motivating feedback. I was very comfortable engaging with the doctors and asking questions. Having over 10 & 15 years of experience, they were very informative and confident. I really love this place and I recommend it to anyone seeking any areas of dermatology, like skin diseases & conditions, including cosmetic treatments like Botox, dermal fillers, and laser treatments."- M.B. / Google / Mar 03, 2020
