You should inform the physician of any medications you are taking before your Mohs surgery. Some medication or vitamin frequency may need to be altered for pre- and post-care. Please avoid taking aspirin, Advil, or Aleve for a few days prior to your procedure.

Most patients do not complain of significant pain post-procedure. If there is any discomfort, usually Tylenol (not aspirin, Advil, or Aleve) is best. Stronger medications may be prescribed if necessary. You will most likely experience some swelling and bruising around the area as well but that should subside within a few days. Some itching as the site heals or drainage of fluid or blood from the area may also occur.

It is important to keep the area clean. Instructions for cleaning the site, including topical medication, will be given to you by the doctor or the medical assistant after the procedure. Please follow these directions and return in a timely manner for your suture removal, as scheduled.


Happy Patient

I am a happy patient of Dr. Rueckl.  I have had Fractora several times.  Couldn’t be happier.

I Love This Place!

I love this place. My first step in their office, I was like, whoa! It’s beautiful! I was sent here by the VA for some skin issues and the doctors here are truly amazing. He listens to every single complaint I’ve had without any judgment and is very positive about my treatment plan! Even the nurses and ladies behind the desks were super friendly. I definitely recommend this place!!


Does The Best Lips!

Does the best lips! He’s also a really skilled injector. I don’t even think he numbed me, but I barely felt anything. It was nice not to do a dental block. He gave me the exact (natural) look I was going for. Not obviously fake at all but I DID get compliments on my lips from a few of my doctor friends!


The Best Doctor Ever!

The best Doctor ever! I’ve been dealing with rosacea for years and he was the only doctor who really help me. Im really glad that i find this amazing person he’s so kind, professional humble
