At the Clínica Universidad de Navarra we carry out all types of treatments relating to skin conditions. We use innovative therapeutic techniques and the latest technology.
We employ new treatments, which in some cases are pioneering. For example, Moh´s surgery (controlled microscopic surgery), which is a highly specialised surgical treatment for cutaneous cancer which has a higher cure rate, compared with traditional techniques.
Moh´s surgery is a highly specialised surgical treatment for cutaneous cancer. This procedure has a higher cure rate, compared with traditional techniques. It is carried out with a microscope.
The procedure is slow and sophisticated; it must be carried out by highly specialised professionals. The Dermatology Department at the Clínica Universidad de Navarra has vast experience in this type of technique.
Currently, there are a wide range of treatments for treating skin conditions, the majority of which are quick and efficient, and do not require a stay in hospital.
The skin, like other organs, requires professional and specific care, especially when it has been exposed to external aggressions.
There are many factors which can affect the skin: tobacco, stress, poor diet and, especially, solar radiation, which speeds up the natural aging process the most.
Before deciding to treat any of these issues, it´s necessary to first undergo a dermatological examination.
Phototherapy is used to treat various skin diseases through ultraviolet radiation, which acts as an anti-inflammatory.
It is used for different inflammatory dermatological diseases (psoriasis, atopical dermatitis, vitiligo, amongst others) and neoplasms (mycosis fungoides).
Generally, this treatment is recommended when a topical treatment has been unsuccessful.
Lasers are a good therapeutic option for benign, superficial dermatological pathologies which are not susceptible to malignancy.
They can correct pigmentation issues, vascular changes or eliminate signs of aging without causing more harm, or excessive pain.
When considering laser treatment, it´s important to first seek out a professional doctor´s advice.
These are used to improve areas of sun damaged skin, reduce wrinkles, improve the appearance of acne or chickenpox scarring and to discolour or eliminate white patches.
Depending on the strength of the chemical substance´s penetration, the procedure will remove more or less skin layers.
Peelings can be physical or chemical, and must always be supervised by a medical specialist.
This treatment is selected for use on some skin carcinomas, like superficial basal cell carcinomas and some precancerous lesions, such as actinic keratosis.
The advantages of this treatment include its specificity and selectivity (as it will not damage healthy tissues), its safety and lack of secondary effects. Three months after treatment, the skin is usually completely normal.
