TOKARZ DERMATOLOGY has been open just shy of two years and according to its founder, Dr. Valerie Tokarz, it has been a fulfilling endeavor. Although Dr. Tokarz closed the practice for eight weeks in 2020 due to COVID-19, she and her staff have been able to return to their office and continue to offer advanced dermatology cosmetic treatments, with a very high degree of safety.
“Our practice has always upheld the highest standards for safety when performing cosmetic treatments. Most people do not realize that dermatologists are the pioneers for ALL of these medical procedures and therapies (Laser, Botox, Facial Fillers) and that we continually work on process improvements, including in the face of a pandemic.”
Tokarz Dermatology offers many skin treatment options for patients. Dr. Tokarz uses state-of-the-art lasers to manage rosacea; fillers and Botox for changes associated with aging such as wrinkles and facial volume loss; procedures for acne scars; lasers for unwanted hair; and a new procedure to help with under-eye puffiness, circles, and overall skin texture. “The world of dermatology is in constant flux, and over the past few years I’ve been following the progression of using a patient’s own platelets (PRP) to help the skin in a variety of ways. It’s exciting to see these studies become a reality in a clinical environment.”
With over 30 years combined experience in Cosmetic, Medical, and Surgical Dermatology, Tokarz’s “Dream Team” pride themselves on making your visit exceptional. Manager Maria DiSimone points out some of the personal touches: “Any patient who has a procedure done – be it laser hair removal, Botox, or even a laser scar resurfacing procedure – will get a follow-up phone call to ensure they don’t have any unusual side effects, have an opportunity to ask additional questions, and see how their overall experience was. We are constantly working at improving the patient’s experience by building trust and long-term relationships.” Barbara, Dr. Tokarz’s medical assistant, ensures patients are comfortable and helps create a relaxing and calming environment during their procedures.
A major benefit to having your cosmetic and laser procedures performed by a board-certified dermatologist is the level of expertise. “Dr. Tokarz will help guide patients through therapy for pre-skin cancers, acne, melasma, and has even found several skin cancers on patients that had been overlooked by non- dermatology establishments.” She is always giving dermatology advice to help her patients that only a specialist with her training knows. “I learn every day from Dr. Tokarz and realize that our practice is truly where patients get expert skin care,” adds Maria, who has been in the industry for many years and worked at a variety of cosmetic offices.
So, if you find yourself staring at your wrinkles on Zoom, worsening rosacea from masks, seeing sunspots, growing tired of shaving, or just want to learn what a cosmetic dermatologist can offer, call for your personal individualized consultation with Dr. Valerie Tokarz. The “Dream Team” is here to assist you!
