With providers that have achieved the highest certification possible, VitalSkin uses Mohs micrographic surgery to effectively treat and eliminate skin cancer. Having the highest success rate of all skin cancer treatments – up to 99% – the procedure is done all in one visit, including lab work. In the Mohs procedure, the cancer is surgically removed layer by layer and examined under a microscope until healthy, cancer-free tissue is reached.
Mohs surgery has the highest cure rate for primary tumors, with success rates of up to 99%. Even for recurrent tumors, the cure rate is high, with success rates of up to 94%.
Mohs surgery is the most precise approach available, as it allows for the examination of 100% of tumor margins. This technique also spares healthy tissue.
Mohs surgery leaves the smallest defect possible while still ensuring complete removal of cancerous tissue. This also maximizes the aesthetic result, making it an ideal choice for treating skin cancers in cosmetically sensitive areas.
Mohs surgery is performed as a single outpatient procedure, reducing the need for multiple surgeries. Additionally, the cost of the surgery includes pathology and wound repair.
Mohs surgery is performed in a single-visit office setting, minimizing the need for multiple appointments. It can be performed under local anesthesia, reducing the risks associated with general anesthesia.

When I called and was able to get a same day appointment and had a great experience with Megan! She listened and answered any questions I had. The staff at the front desk are very friendly! Two thumbs up for sure.
I was very pleased with the care I received with Dr. Youse and his caring staff. Should I need MOHS again, VitalSkin would be my first choice.
The nurses and staff at Vital Skin Dermatology were excellent. The care was top notch! Everyone was extremely friendly and explained everything so well. They also accommodated my need to have a Mohs procedure with follow up surgical procedures the next day. Dr Youse was excellent, and he explained everything that would take place and exactly what he would be doing. He also gave me additional advice regarding my skin on my face and answered all my questions. He was very patient and easy to talk to and I did not feel rushed at all. I would highly recommend Vital Skin Dermatology to anyone in need of a Dermatologist.

What should I expect during my initial consultation?
Your first visit begins with a consultation with your board-certified dermatologist. Prior to care, we will get your health history and perform a clinical evaluation of the skin to determine which treatment options are the best fit. We will customize both a treatment plan and a skin care regimen if desired. Important pre- and post-treatment instructions will also be provided to accompany most treatments.
What insurances do you accept?
We accept a variety of major insurances for your skin care. We have examples of insurances we accept on our website. If you don’t see your insurance listed, please contact us and we will verify if we accept.
What is the difference between a deductible, copay and coinsurance?
All three are medical charges you must pay out of your own pocket, even if you have insurance. Deductibles are a specific amount you must accumulate and pay each year of covered health services before benefits are provided by your carrier. Plans may also have separate individual and family deductibles and/or deductibles for separate services. Copayments are a set fee the member pays to providers at the time services are provided. Copays are applied to office visits, emergency room visits, hospital admissions, etc. Coinsurance is a form of cost sharing. After your deductible has been met, plan will begin paying a percentage of your bills. The remaining amount, known as co-insurance, is the portion due by the patient.

Why choose VitalSkin Dermatology Ash Avenue as your dermatology providers?

How should I prepare for my full body skin exam?
Before you arrive at your full body skin exam, you should take the following steps to ensure your dermatologist can easily examine your skin.
Why should I choose Mohs surgery for my skin cancer removal?
Mohs surgery has many benefits, and some even refer to it as the “best treatment for skin cancers.” This is because Mohs surgery is extremely effective in achieving total removal of cancerous skin tissue. Your doctor will remove each layer of tissue precisely from the exact location where the cancer originated. Once the tissue is removed, it is sent off to the lab to be tested. This process removes the guesswork of skin cancer removal and allows your doctor to remove all the cancerous tissue without leaving any behind. Another reason Mohs is recommended is partly due to its convenience. Because of the minimal tissue damage, most patients who receive Mohs surgery only need to schedule one appointment.
What are the signs I should have my mole removed?
Everyone has a mole at least somewhere on their body—it is perfectly normal. However, there are several signs and symptoms you should look for to help you decide if your mole could be potentially dangerous. Here are a few signs that may warrant removal of the mole:
What causes volume loss?
Facial volume loss is a condition that makes the skin lose fullness and elasticity. While it is normal, certain lifestyle choices can exacerbate the onset of facial volume loss. While volume loss does not cause physical pain or discomfort to the individual, it can cause the patient emotional and mental strain. So, what are the causes of facial volume loss? Volume loss can be caused by several factors. Including ageing, genetic predispositions, and lifestyle choices. Certain lifestyle choices include smoking, excessive sun exposure, and changes in hormonal profiles.
