The new offices will be located at the Aspen Institute of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at 400 W. Main Street in Aspen.The opening gives local residents full-time access to a top dermatology and skin treatment center. Cara Mia Medical Director, Dr. Leslie Capin says because of the dry conditions, altitude and continuous exposure to the sun as well as their active lifestyle, Aspen area residents have a high risk of skin cancer.”It’s such an active community with people skiing, kayaking, biking, rock climbing,” said Capin. “Aspen area residents are extremely health conscious and part of taking care of your body is taking care of your skin.”Cara Mia is the only center in Colorado with a board-certified doctor on staff offering round the clock dermatology and skin care to patients. Dr. Capin says the new Aspen offices go one step further by partnering with a reconstructive and plastic surgery center in the same location to offer patients more options. With hundreds of Aspen area residents already traveling to Denver to see us for treatment, Capin says “it makes sense to open a branch here.”For more information about Cara Mia Medical Day Spa and its four locations around Colorado, go to http://www.caramiadayspa.com.R.A.
