Dr. David Verebelyi, seven year resident of Glen Oaks and father of three young children, is an engineer by trade who graduated with a Bachelors of Science from the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy. Verebelyi worked as a Biochemist for two years after graduation where he took a big interest in lasers. He went on to attend medical school and is now Medical Director for the Colorado Center for Photomedicine (CCP) in Highlands Ranch.
What is photomedicine exactly? Photomedicine is the study and application of light with respect to health and disease in various fields of medicine including dermatology, surgery, cardiology, and oncology. With dermatology being Verebelyi’s area of expertise, he says, “The original question was how to get the best and least invasive treatment for things like veins, port wine stains, and scars. The answer turned out to be photomedicine.”
Verebelyi is committed to education and has trained many other professionals in the field with some of his groundbreaking work. He is onsite at CCP every day and personally performs many of the light-based and injectable treatments. Verebelyi says, “Lasers are one of the fastest growing fields in medicine and can be used to treat everything from skin discoloration, sun damage, acne scarring, and wrinkles to precancerous skin cells, or even just to tighten and firm the skin.”
In his spare time, Verebelyi enjoys the Colorado outdoors with snowboarding, rock climbing, and 14ers. Says Verebelyi, “I have been skiing out here since I was a little kid and fell in love with the place. I spent about 20 years getting my education and knew this is where I wanted to set up shop when I was done.”
