Any time there is an excision or anything like that done, you can have swelling. With Mohs there is a lot of tissue being removed and manipulated so swelling can last for awhile. It takes about 2 weeks for the swelling to go down. Overall I usually tell people that it takes about 6 months to heal from a Mohs procedure and have an idea of what everything will look like. At that point you can explore options like lasers or things to help alleviate the scarring. Mederma isn't very helpful (at all) but you can safely be using it if you'd like.
