Professional Statement

Dr. Michalak performs a wide range of procedures including laser treatments, cosmetic procedures of the face, liposuction of the face and body, and treatments for aging and sun-damaged skin. He was the first physician to introduce laser skin resurfacing to the Northwest region and among the first in the country to perform Tumescent Liposuction, after being personally trained by the doctor who invented the technique. He was also the first to do SmartLipo in Seattle, which both tightens skin tissue and induces new collagen production. Seattle Dermatologist Dr. Michalak has performed thousands of cosmetic surgery procedures using the latest, state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. He performs only the procedures that have consistently been proven safe and which yield optimal aesthetic results, while vastly reducing the potential for any undesirable side effects. He utilizes Fractional CO2, Vbeam, and Fraxel lasers, and also performs Laser Dynamic Therapy, to treat sun damage and wrinkles. Dr. Michalak’s team includes Physician Assistants trained in dermatology and skin care, as well as a Licensed Medical Aesthetician. Trained at Cornell University Medical College, Dr. Michalak completed his Clinical Internship and Dermatology Residency at the renowned Mayo Clinic. His educational and scientific background included Graduate Studies in Molecular Biology at New York University and research in Biochemistry in the laboratory of Nobel Laureate Dr. Stanford Moore at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research in New York City. Dr. Michalak has been Board Certified by the American Board of Dermatology and State Licensed to practice in the state of Washington since 1987.
