What are alternatives to MOHs esp for a patient with multiple lesions as a result of radiation therapy for acne? (photo)

In 3 years I have had multiple biopsies, 9 of which have been positive for Basel cell ca; one infiltrative, one wth squamous implications. At this rate of proliferation, I'm wondering what alternatives are available to avoid all the cutting. Please advise.
