Dr. Spencer has over 20 years of experience teaching residents and other physicians how and when to perform cosmetic therapies. He has been and remains involved in testing and developing a variety of new cosmetic therapies, and serves as Editor in Chief of the Medical Journal Cosmetic Dermatology. We find that more important than the services offered is the experience and judgment to use them properly.

MOHS Micrographic Surgery
Is an outpatient technique that provides the highest cure rates possible for Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, and some Melanomas. The technique is named for Dr. Fredrich Mohs, who originated the procedure. The skin cancer to be treated is anesthetized with local numbing medicine, then only the visible portion of the tumor is carefully removed. No normal skin is removed. This layer is then made into microscope slides in the office while the patient waits. Dr. Spencer examines these slides to make sure that 100% of the edges and the bottom are cancer free.
If there is more cancer at one edge, another layer at that edge is removed, and it is similarly examined microscopically. This process continues until all the cancer is removed. This produces cure rates of 99% for Basal Cell Carcinoma, while at the same time keeping the wound as small as possible because no normal skin is removed. Once the cancer has been cured, Dr. Spencer and the patient decide together whether to allow the wound to heal naturally, to repair the wound surgically in the office the same day, or enlist the services of a plastic surgeon.

Zeltiq CoolSculpting Procedures
It’s a common complaint: People who are physically fit and at a stable weight still have bulges, rolls, and other small areas of fat they can’t get rid of no matter how much they exercise or diet. Spot reducing fat through diet and exercise is practically impossible for many of us.
Men and women alike face the frustrating truth every day of a muffin top, love handles or back fat — not much, but just enough to show through a snug-fitting t-shirt or blouse. These small areas of fat don’t seem to warrant a surgical procedure. But you may be tempted.
How It Works
Now you can attack these problem areas with the non-invasive, FDA-cleared CoolSculpting procedure. A team of scientists and physicians developed the CoolSculpting procedure, which utilizes a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis™ to target, cool, and eliminate fat cells without damage to other tissue.
Watch the procedure on “The Doctors”
After a one- to three-hour CoolSculpting procedure, the patient’s body goes to work. Over the next two to four months, the crystallized fat cells break down and are naturally eliminated from the body. You can learn more on the CoolSculpting website, or contact us for a consultation today.
Fractora: Advanced, non-invasive body refinement and skin resurfacing
Fractora is the most advanced fractional radio-frequency treatment providing anti-aging improvements on skin tone and texture for a more radiant appearance through ablation and skin resurfacing. Fractora can be used in areas that demonstrate fine or deep wrinkles, scars or discolored red and brown skin tone. The most common areas of treatment are the lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, cheeks, mouth and neck.
