Colorado Dermatology Institute
We are a holistic Dermatology practice incorporating state of the art Medical, Surgical, and Cosmetic dermatology services. It is our mission to help you become comfortable in your skin while providing you with the most up-to-date and comprehensive dermatologic care possible. It is our privilege to actively educate you on your diagnosis, discuss treatment options, and explain medication usage so that you can become an active participant in your medical care. We strive to exceed your expectations each and every visit.
Along with our emphasis on providing each patient with the best medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatologic care available anywhere, we emphasize individualized care for our patients who range in age from infants to those who have had the privilege of becoming senior citizens. At the Colorado Dermatology Institute, we treat people, not "diseases", and we probe for the underlying cause of issues rather than going for the quick fix and only treating the symptom. Everything we do is designed to give each of our patients the best possible medical or aesthetic outcome and make each patient feel that they have been heard and treated with respect.
We are honored to accept TRICARE and we participate in all major health insurance plans. As a token of our respect for those who protect us and our freedoms, we offer discounts on cosmetic services to those in the military, law enforcement, and firefighter communities.
Dermatology encompasses the myriad of conditions which affect the skin, hair, and nails. The art of practicing dermatology incorporates the genetic, environmental, and psychological co-factors affecting this enormously intricate organ into a diagnosis and treatment plan individually designed to encourage health. In many respects, the skin, hair and nails provide a window into a person's life, hobbies, and experiences; at the same time, they tell the story of a person's overall health and potential systemic ailments.
We offer the full range of medical dermatology services to help you feel comfortable in your skin so that your skin, hair, and nails do not interfere with your being able to live the life you choose.
Dermatologists spend years mastering the art and science of performing surgical procedures designed to be highly effective in treating dermatologic disease while at the same time being as "scar-less" as possible. With the tools of extensive training, exhaustive attention to detail, and specialized cutaneous knowledge, your surgical procedure will be handled with the highest level of competency and professionalism.
In addition to general dermatologic surgical procedures, Colorado Dermatology Institute specializes in Mohs Micrographic Surgery which offers the highest cure rates for skin cancer and is also the most convenient, cost effective, and cosmetically pleasing skin cancer treatment for the patient.
Much like the cover of a book, our skin tells the story of our life. Each aspect of our appearance is a different chapter of experience, circumstance, and wisdom. Some aspects we were born with and others we earned through life's journey. But regardless of their origin, sometimes these aspects can distract you from living your life on your own terms.
The professionally trained staff at the Colorado Dermatology Institute is pleased to offer you cosmetic services which enjoy a history of excellent results, robust safety profiles, and the unparalleled integrity dermatology training brings to this field. Among our available cosmetic services such as Microderm Abrasion Facials, Botox, fillers, and the Intense Pulse Light machine for more even skin tones and elimination of facial veins and brown pigmented spots, we offer the state of the art Deka Dot skin resurfacing laser. This new laser produces better results with significantly less discomfort and downtime than older lasers and you will look years younger in one hour.
3 tips for Younger Looking Skin
1. Protect from the damaging effects of the sun. Sun is essential for life but it is very hard on unprotected skin. But if you keep your skin protected while in the sun (even on a cloudy day or while skiing) with a good quality sun screen with at least SPF 30 and which contains Zinc or Titanium Dioxide (or both), you can enjoy the sun and help your skin stay looking younger longer. We sell several varieties of good qualify sunscreens in the clinic.
2. Dryness. Colorado's dry climate makes for better outdoor living but it isn't kind to your skin. Keep your skin moisturized with a good quality moisturizer and your skin will be happier. There is no need to buy expensive moisturizers and you should stay away from anything with artificial fragrance. There are several good quality and inexpensive moisturizers on the market. We carry several of them in the clinic and would be happy to discuss which one might be best for your skin type and activities.
3. Lifestyle choices. Smoking, tanning beds, excessive alcohol consumption and recreational drugs are very hard on your skin. If you want to maintain healthy and youthful looking skin, maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep away from tanning beds - they are not only terrible for your skin, they can also promote skin cancer.
