Edmonton’s Dermatology and Laser Skin Care Centre
Our dermatologist, Dr. Thomas Nakatsui, thanks you for voting Nakatsui DermaSurgery as the best cosmetic clinic in Edmonton in 2019, 2020, and 2023! We truly appreciate this recognition and the association with the exclusive Top Choice Award circle of winners and the Consumer Choice Award circle of winners, as well as being recognized as one of the best Edmonton dermatologists by ThreeBestRated.ca. This could not have been done without the dedication of our team and patients, and for that, we are very grateful to you all. We have the best patients in Edmonton! Thank you for making us Edmonton’s premier dermatology and laser skin care and rejuvenation centre.
Our laser skin care and dermatology clinic was originally founded by laser pioneer and well-respected Edmonton dermatologist and skin specialist, Doctor Don Groot, as the Groot DermaSurgery Centre (now Nakatsui DermaSurgery). His long time colleague, Board Certified Edmonton Dermatologist Dr. Thomas Nakatsui, took the helm in 2014 and continues to work with a team of dedicated, experienced individuals who assist him in meeting patients’ dermatology and skin care needs. Our dermatology nurses, some with advanced degrees and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certification, are highly skilled assistants to our doctors.
Our equipment and technology are state of the art and are used to rejuvenate the skin, treat skin cancers, and treat redness, pigment, and scar tissue. We have not only one, but two different methods for reducing fat: EvolveX Transform and Coolsculpting. We are also one of the most experienced CoolSculpting clinics in Edmonton and Dr. Nakatsui is one of the most sought after injectors of Botox and fillers. As a result, he has repeatedly achieved Double Diamond status from Allergan, the makers of Botox and Juvederm, and is one of the few solo injectors in Canada to do so.

How Many Laser Systems Do You Have at Your Clinic?
Our laser skin care and dermatology clinic in Edmonton has over 27 lasers and energy based devices. Our newest laser is PicoWay, which is a picosecond laser for tattoos, pigment, and skin rejuvenation. Our Edmonton dermatology clinic is always trying to stay at the leading edge of technology and currently you need a picosecond laser to be at the forefront.
In 2022, we also introduced our newest skin tightening modalities, Accutite and Facetite, which are minimally invasive techniques to improve sagging eyelids, jowls, and submental areas.
We also recently introduced our newest technology modality, electricity! Electricity has now been harnessed into billionths of a second pulses to treat stubborn warts and benign skin lesions. You can learn more about CellFX here.
In late 2020, we introduced a fantastic new treatment for skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing called Opus Plasma resurfacing and we are the first clinic in Western Canada to have this! We also introduced a more advanced type of RF microneedling called Morpheus8 for skin tightening and for treating acne scarring.
And that’s not all…there are even more new treatments coming in the next month or two. Stay tuned!

How Long Does it Take to Become a Dermatologist?
The best answer is 13 years on average. A dermatologist is a true skin care expert and skin and hair specialist with many years of training (typically 4 years undergraduate + 4 years medical school + 5 years dermatology residency) and accreditation from the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada as a dermatologist. Dr. Nakatsui did 3 years undergraduate + 4 years medical school + 6 years dermatology residency (1 extra year of dermatology research).
After completing this training, the graduate can then complete the qualifying examinations in Canada (and the USA if desired), and if he or she passes, becomes board certified in Canada (and/or the USA).
