At The Skin Surgery Centre, we are committed to helping our patients find the highest quality skin care products to protect their skin. After a skin cancer removal procedure, your skin is incredibly vulnerable. High-quality products protect the cancer site while also helping to prevent the risk of additional skin cancer formation. In addition, these products contain general sun protection or anti-aging properties.
After a thorough evaluation, our board-certified Mohs micrographic surgeons will recommend the best products for your specific needs. These are the major brands we carry, along with their benefits.

At ISDIN, researchers focus on combatting harmful effects of sun exposure to protect your skin after a cancer removal procedure. ISDIN offers skin care products like moisturizers, serums, and cleansers depending on your needs. At The Skin Surgery Centre, we carry their flagship product, the sunscreen Eryfotona Actinica.

- Protection from the sun

When it comes to skin care, it’s not just what you put on your body, but what you put into it. This is especially true for skin in its post-procedure state when it’s more vulnerable to the effects of the sun or other irritants.

Heliocare currently offers three types of skin supplements—Heliocare, Heliocare Ultra, and Heliocare Advanced. Each is also made with natural ingredients that help you
