Dr. Bakken is especially interested in the challenging area of Medical Dermatology and Facial Rejuvenation and Reconstruction.

In the last several years Dr. Bakken has trained in PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to offer the latest up to date anti-aging techniques for hair growth and face rejuvenation (Vampire Facial© and Vampire Facelift©) https://www.laserskincaremedspa.ca/prp/
