Epiphany Dermatology of Colorado Springs is committed to offering the highest standard of dermatologic care, working collaboratively with our patients to personalize their treatments and yield the best possible outcomes.
Our board-certified dermatologists emphasize preventive skin care and recommend a yearly full body skin examination for early detection of atypical moles, precancerous skin lesions, and skin cancer. We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the skin, hair, and nails for all age groups.
We are located at 640 Southpointe Court, Suite 110 in South Colorado Springs. Take the Lake Avenue Exit off I-25 and proceed west for approximately 1 mile. At that set of lights take a left onto Southgate Road. Take first left onto Southgate Court. We are in the beige stone building on the left in approximately 200 feet. Use the front entrance, we are on the first floor to the left.
Acne can have a big impact on your life, which is why we take acne treatment very seriously and use aggressive treatment plans when necessary. Our staff is passionate about treating acne to prevent the emotional and physical scars that can last a lifetime.
A rash is an abnormal change in your skin’s texture or color, usually characterized by a red, scaly irritation on your skin. Because of the sheer number of rashes and their subtle differences, specialized training is required to properly diagnose and treat rashes.
Psoriasis is an inflammation in the skin driven by the body’s own immune system. The inflammation in the skin causes red, itchy, and scaly lesions mainly around elbows, knees and scalp. While not contagious, it’s important to seek the help of a dermatologist.
Melasma is a skin condition that creates brown patches of skin in areas that get significant sun exposure. Our skilled team members work hard restoring your skin and helping you achieve a smooth, even complexion.
A skin spot referred to as a “precancerous lesion” is usually a specific sun-induced growth called actinic keratosis. It’s one of the most common issues we see in dermatology, and it’s what prompts most patients to schedule their dermatologist visits.
A biopsy is the removal of a piece of skin to help render a diagnosis of skin cancers or inflammatory conditions. Dermatologists biopsy an area to confirm a diagnosis that cannot be rendered with the eyes alone. We need a microscope to be certain.
Skin excision is a surgery where we cut out damaged skin tissue. It is a full-thickness removal — meaning we remove all layers of the tissue (epidermis, dermis, and into the subcutaneous fat layer). We then suture it back together with stitches for optimal healing.
Wrinkle Reduction (BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, etc.)
As our skin thins over time, it creases more easily with muscle movement. Neuromodulator (Botox® Cosmetic, DAXXIFY®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®) treatments prevent wrinkles because they lessen this contraction. With these injections, the toxins stop the muscle movements that cause frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and wrinkling.
Injectable fillers help restore volume in the skin, which can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles that come with age. Injectable fillers have also been used to make thin lips fuller, correct acne scars, and make the areas under the eyes less dark or puffy.
Lasers (IPL, Fractional Lasers, HALO® Lasers, Red Light, Blue Light)
The Icon Laser Scar Treatment is non-ablative, meaning it doesn’t cut the skin. This laser generates columns of heat that go under the deep dermis to cause inflammation. The remaining tissue produces collagen and elastin which work to heal the skin.
Female Rejuvenation with CO2 Laser
Female rejuvenation with CO2 laser, radiofrequency devices, and injectables is a less invasive, energy-based procedure than traditional means. The treatment doesn’t require surgery and requires less downtime for recovery.
Moles are the most common skin growth and there are several reasons to have them removed or checked. Moles that appear to be changing or any new moles after age 30 should be checked by our team. Early detection of melanoma is critical.
Body Contouring (CoolSculpting®, EMSculpt®, SculpSure®, etc)
Body contouring improves the contour of the body by heating, freezing, or applying energy to targeted areas. Using non-invasive devices, we can remove fat, tone muscle, and tighten the skin to enhance the overall body contour appearance.
Sun spots are light brown to tan spots that appear on the skin and are usually from sun exposure. The most common body areas affected are the face, shoulders, arms, and hands. They are usually benign, however, skin cancer can develop a lesion.
