Wound management after Mohs surgery

The final aesthetic result following Mohs surgery depends on wound healing and management. Management of healing commences promptly after Mohs surgery. Initially you will receive antibiotic cream, then other topical creams that modify healing. Sometimes, intervention with skin laser, dermabrasion or injections is needed to modify healing and achieve the desired result. Office based wound revision of minor irregularities may also be recommended. Depending on individual healing, the period of wound management can extend from 3 to 18 months.
