Leading Ladies 2020: Dr. Valerie Tokarz

Board-Certified Dermatologist & Laser Specialist


Dr. Valerie Tokarz takes a skin deep approach in her practice,
TOKARZ LASER AND AESTHETIC DERMATOLOGY. “I love my job,” says the board-certified dermatologist. “It’s incredibly rewarding to make a difference in someone’s life.” Her dermatology office, which opened in March of 2019, showcases her skilled experience in laser surgery for both cosmetic and scar treatments as well as anti-aging treatments such as Botox™ and Fillers.

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 patients are always treated by a medical doctor at her practice. “The industry has many self-proclaimed ‘experts’ who have not had the thousands of hours of dermatology training required to medically treat patients in this specialty.” My vision for my practice is to provide patient awareness and education about their medically-proven options.”

Dr. Tokarz continues to find new and innovative ways for using lasers to help scars, wrinkles, sunspots, and rosacea including new techniques using multiple modalities for lip and neck lines.

“We’ve had great success helping our patients achieve healthy looking skin using a variety of state-of-the-art treatments including Lasers, Botox™, Filler, and Peels. Our feedback has been very positive because patients feel they are in the best hands with a board certified dermatologist’s office helping them plan skin care treatments and daily maintenance,” Dr. Tokarz says.

“We have some of the area’s most highly-trained and experienced dermatology staff. They do a tremendous job ensuring patients are well cared for,” Dr. Tokarz says.
