How it works

The dermatologist scrapes or shaves off the BCC using a curette (a sharp instrument with a ring-shaped tip), then uses heat or a chemical agent to destroy remaining cancer cells, stop the bleeding and seal off the wound.

Typically, the procedure leaves a round, whitish scar resembling a cigarette burn at the surgery site.
