Dr. Martin Safko, MD
Dr. Safko received his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and did his internal medicine internship at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. He feels enormously grateful to have been trained by many of medicine's greatest professors, several of whom were Nobel Prize winners. After completing a research fellowship in immunodermatology, Dr. Safko finished his residency in dermatology at the University of Oregon Health Science Center in Portland, Oregon. At Southwest Dermatology Center, Dr. Safko does a significant amount of cosmetic laser and non-laser procedures emphasizing noninvasive facial and body-rejuvenating procedures. He feels that his rigorous scientific background gives him an advantage in evaluating new products and procedures so he can separate fact from marketing hype.
