Leading Ladies 2019: Dr. Valerie Tokarz

Board-Certified Dermatologist & Laser Specialist, Tokarz Laser & Aesthetic Dermatology


To say Dr. Valerie Tokarz takes a skin deep approach is an understatement. “I love my job,” says the board-certified dermatologist. “It’s incredibly rewarding to make a difference in someone’s life.”

Dr. Tokarz is excited to bring her expertise to her new practice, TOKARZ LASER AND AESTHETIC DERMATOLOGY. Her dermatology office, which is scheduled to open in March, will showcase her skilled experience in laser surgery for both cosmetic and scar treatments as well as anti-aging treatments such as Botox® and fillers.

Her journey to becoming a leader in laser surgery began with earning a degree in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University and a Doctorate of Osteopathy at the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. Her training at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego was a pivotal, life-changing opportunity. Laser surgery is a highly specialized and critical treatment for the military, especially for scar victims. “Working with active military and veterans gave me a unique perspective on the lasting impact of laser surgery.”

Dr. Tokarz’s career took yet another groundbreaking turn in 2012, when she became the first U.S. physician to bring a laser onboard a U.S. Navy ship. “I had the honor to perform laser scar surgery during a humanitarian mission in Asia. My military experience was both humbling and empowering. It continues to shape the way I treat patients.”

In addition to scars, Dr. Tokarz uses state-of- the-art treatments for rosacea, acne, sunspots, wrinkles, and hair removal. “I personally treat my patients,” she adds, pointing out that clients are always treated by a medical doctor at Tokarz Laser and Aesthetic Dermatology. “The skin industry has many self-proclaimed ‘experts’ that have not had the thousands of hours of training required to medically treat patients. My vision for my practice is to provide patient awareness and education about their medically-proven options.”

As the largest organ in the body, skin is much more than its outer appearance. “From preventing skin cancer to reducing acne scars, I am committed to providing personalized healthy skin solutions and truly improving lives.”
