In the Innovative Dermatology Center we prophylactically check all moles, perform prevention checks of skin cancer and melanoma. For this purpose we use the latest world level diagnostic equipment and employ the latest methods of treatment. Experienced physicians dermato-oncologists and a plastic surgeon advise on moles, benign skin tumours (papillomas, keratoses, and etc.), precancerous skin derivatives, actinic keratoses, skin cancer (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma), skin melanomas and cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (mycosis fungoides).
