His aesthetic clinics are in the Lowry area of Denver as well as Southlands Mall in Aurora.

With the aesthetic industry evolving constantly, Dr. Kakkar is highly trained in every aesthetic treatment, supervises his staff, and performs injections and other anti-aging treatments.  Dr. Kakkar receives frequent training in up-to-date methods and treatments so that his patients have the best possible outcomes. He also assures that his staff members are trained and knowledgeable in current aesthetic practices through on-going training and education.  His goal and the goal of his clinics is to have his patients looking their best, while not looking “done.” Dr. Kakkar will not recommend a procedure to a patient unless he believes it is needed. He does not perform surgery, and his practice is limited to minimally invasive and non-invasive aesthetics.

As with the other members of the team, Dr.Kakkar’s consultations are always complimentary.

Carla North: I’m a licensed Aesthetician and certified in lasers treatments.  I’ve been in this industry since 1999. I’m very passionate about health and skincare and I can help you understand how products, lifestyle/diet, stress and hormones can play an important role, not only on your body, but in your skins behavior.  I look at the “big picture” to achieve long term success! I have a wonderful relationship with my clients and I look forward to meeting you.

In my spare time, I love glamping, traveling and everything outdoors with the family. I also love sitting on my patio with a good book and relaxing!
