Dr. Jeff Ptak wears two hats in the Telluride community: he is a board certified plastic surgeon with a private practice and the dermatologist at the Telluride Medical Center. In both contexts, however, he regularly confronts the vicissitudes of altitude and aging on skin and finds solutions.
Dr. Ptak first visited the Telluride region 40 years ago. Since then, he has watched the community grow and change, and the town's small "clinic" grow into a Medical Center now bursting at the seams, just as the demand to deliver more and better state-of-the-art services is growing.
The Med Center's annual FEAST (Fund for Expanding and Supporting Telluride's Medical Center), March 12, Telluride Conference Center, is an evening of fine food and wine, a live auction and dancing to the latin sounds of one of the Telluride Jazz Celebration's favorite bands, "Groupo Fantasmo."
If you are unable to attend, however, you are invited to support the cause by participating in an online auction. On the list of items to bid on is a Spring-themed gift basket donated by Dr. Ptak. featuring top-of-the-line professional/medical-grade skincare products to nourish your skin by effecting change in the organ's cellular structure.

If you use more than the recommended amount you may experience irritation, redness, flaking, or inflammation.
