Dr. Paul Lubitz: Canmore has more laser treatment options
August 10, 2014
Art of SKIN Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery – Canmore now has advanced laser treatment options available with opening of new specialty skin centre.
All of us should know how important the health of one’s skin is. But, as many of us who live in the Canmore area may also know, enjoying the access to state of the art, advanced medical treatments is sometimes not the easiest thing to do when one lives in a rural, more remote location such as Canmore. In the past, residents of Canmore and the Bow Valley had to travel east to Calgary (or west to Kelowna) to receive the kind of advanced skin care treatments offered by Royal College accredited dermatologists that they may have needed.
With that said, Canmore residents should be very pleased to know that a new dermatology and laser clinic is set to open this summer in downtown Canmore; one that will provide residents a brand-new opportunity to gain access locally to a wide variety of advanced, state of the art, skin care diagnostic techniques and treatments previously not available in the valley.
Art of Skin Dermatology and Laser will be located in Suite 204 at 1240 Railway Avenue in Canmore AB, and will be owned and operated by Canmore’s very own Canadian and American Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Paul Lubitz. Dr. Lubitz currently provides general medical and surgical dermatology care as a staff physician at Canmore General Hospital, and will continue operating this hospital-based clinic into the future. The plan will be to have the two clinics providing complementary diagnostic and treatment options to cover the ever-expanding and complex world of advanced skin care diagnosis and treatment. Dr Lubitz, having practiced as a dermatologist for over thirteen years and having managed a very large dermatology and skin surgery clinic in the past, is well-equipped with the medical, surgical, laser, cosmetic and management skills to ensure that Art of SKIN Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery Centre will run efficiently and smoothly, and most importantly, provide safe and effective dermatologic services to fill all the skin care needs of Bow Valley residents.
In addition to being a much-needed resource for advanced skin care treatments, Art of SKIN Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery will also serve as an important place of patient education; for patients to learn more about how to better maintain their skin’s health. With that educational purpose in mind, in addition to offering Dr. Lubitz’s medical and surgical expertise, Art of SKIN Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery will be staffed by experienced skin consultants including: a Skin Care Product Consultant, and a Cosmetic Procedure Consultant.
The Skin Care Consultant, who is fully licensed and has more than fifteen years of experience in the skin care field, will be there to help Art of SKIN Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery patients determine what their best skin care product options are and which skin care products will best help them to protect, improve, restore and rejuvenate their skin’s health.
Art of Skin’s Cosmetic Procedure Consultant will be at the clinic as a source of knowledge and an educational resource, with the purpose of educating clinic patients about the various medical, surgical, laser and cosmetic procedures and treatments available and offered, so that patients can make healthier, safer, and more informed choices.
But, to return to the first point mentioned about Art of SKIN Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery – besides being staffed by skin care professionals with significant experience and a deep knowledge of skin care, Art of SKIN Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery will also provide patients access to a multitude of advanced skin care treatments. In particular, Art of SKIN Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery will offer a wide range of advanced laser skin treatments. The clinic will be equipped with a number of lasers, including the Yag, Alexandrite, Diode and IPL, as well as fractionated CO2, erbium, and others such as radio frequency tightening devices, to name a few. With this kind of advanced technology at its disposal, and with the education, clinical experience, and procedural skills of an accredited dermatologist, Art of SKIN Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery will be able to provide a large number of laser skin treatments in a safe and effective fashion. These laser treatments will include treatments to improve skin tone and texture, to remove moles and other skin lesions in visible, esthetically sensitive areas where a large surgical scar would be undesirable, and to reduce skin pigmentation associated with aging and sun damage; treatments to improve skin laxity and reduce wrinkles of the face, neck, chest and hands; as well as laser treatments to reduce the visibility of blood vessels on the face (so called broken blood vessels which is actually erroneous since they are not broken) and problematic and unsightly leg veins; and finally laser treatments to improve scarring such as may have occurred post acne or trauma.
Art of Skin’s homepage at www.artofskin.ca will be available soon for residents to learn more about the wide range of skin care treatments to be offered at the new clinic. In the meantime, you can call 403 675 0018 now for more information or to book an appointment.
