Surgical Dermatology and Laser Center is excited to be an integral part of the medical community in Las Vegas, Nevada! Founded by Dr. Douglas Fife in 2009, we are a dedicated team of Las Vegas dermatology doctors and surgeons, seeking to provide exceptional care and state-of-the-art treatment to every patient, giving them more confidence to face the future. We pride ourselves in being a resource for a wide range of dermatologic procedures, from skin cancer surgery to aesthetic laser procedures.


Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, globally accounting for at least 40% of cases. Mohs surgery is an outpatient procedure used to treat skin cancers, and provides the highest cure rate for many skin cancer types, including basal and squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma and other rare or aggressive skin cancers. Mohs surgery is unique because it allows the Mohs surgeon to precisely remove skin cancers without removing large amounts of normal skin. The doctors at Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center are two of only a few Mohs micrographic surgery certified surgeons in the Las Vegas area.

Dermatologic Surgery

The doctors with Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center are skilled in all forms of invasive and cosmetic dermatology surgery procedures. Skin cancersabnormal moles, cysts, lipomas, and other growths that are either dangerous or symptomatic can be removed surgically in an outpatient setting without the need for general anesthesia. Other growths such as moles on the faces, scars, or other unsightly spots can be removed solely for cosmetic improvement of the skin.

Laser Medicine

Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center offers a wide variety of cosmetic surgery lasers that treat tattoos, wrinkles, brown spots, facial redness, blood vessels, and acne scars. A variety of laser treatment options offer a proven effective method to permanently remove unwanted pigmented lesions, sometimes in as few as 1-2 treatments. Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center is committed to offering the best, and most effective technology to treat patients. In fact, the doctors are pleased to be the first and only dermatology center in Las Vegas to offer the PicoSure laser, which provides the fastest and easiest non-surgical, non-invasive laser skin treatment available.

Acne Scar Therapy

Having acne scars on the face and body is a frustrating and distressing problem for many patients, and can be psychologically devastating to those with severe cases. The doctors at Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center have a special interest and years of special training with leading experts in acne scarring therapy in patients of all skin tones and types. Acne scarring therapy is a specialized field, which is constantly adding new treatments, and treatment plans are tailored to the specific patient to significantly improve the appearance of the skin.
