Professional Affiliations

Dermatology & Laser Institute of Colorado, P.C.

At Dermatology & Laser Institute of Colorado, we treat all conditions involving the skin.

The most common conditions that we treat include acne, warts, moles, and cysts. Given Colorado's intense sun exposure, we frequently diagnose and treat skin cancer, including basal cell cancer, squamous cell cancer, and malignant melanoma. We also frequently see eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, ringworm and fungus infections, impetigo, boils, and rashes.

We also offer a seamless transition for patients seeking medical care who also desire cosmetic, laser treatments, and non-invasive surgery. In skilled hands, non-invasive treatments such as Botox or filler injections can provide skin rejuvenation and restore a youthful look without significant recovery time.
