Found this on-line:

Mohs micrographic surgery for nonmelanoma skin cancer 

Surgery Overview 

Mohs micrographic surgery involves removing a skin cancer one layer at a
time and examining these layers under a microscope immediately after
they are removed. This procedure allows for a close examination of each
layer of skin to detect cancer cells. It also allows a minimal amount of
tissue to be removed while ensuring complete removal of all the cancer

A local anesthetic is injected into the skin before the surgery. Your
doctor then begins to remove the skin cancer and a small amount of
healthy tissue, one layer of skin at a time. Each tissue layer is
prepared and examined under the microscope for cancer cells. Surgery is
complete when no more cancer cells are detected
