Dr. Leonora López, MD
“The ability to enhance the appearance of someone’s skin is extremely rewarding. Each of my patients receives the utmost personalized attention – my goal is to treat each person as if he or she were my only patient.” - Leonora López, MD.
Dr. Leonora López graduated from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine and completed an internship in internal medicine at Emanuel Hospital in Portland, Oregon. She completed her residency at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, and she is board certified in family practice. Dr. López first founded her medical practice in 1988.
Her interest in dermatology began during her internship, and today she dedicates her practice to skin care and aesthetic medicine. Passionate about continuing education, she attends dozens of specialized training sessions each year, including advanced courses in the use of BOTOX® Cosmetic, fillers, sclerotherapy, advanced laser treatments, and PRP for facial rejuvenation and hair growth.
Dr. Lopez also specializes in treating skin of color. Here at Santa Ana Skin Care Clinic we have years of experience treating all Fitzpatrick skin types. We have also learned that treating darker skin (Fitzpatrick 4-6) is a special challenge. If you are a person of color, it is very important to get your skin treated by a clinic that has vast experience in treating skin of color with lasers, peels, and products.
Dr. López is a leader in the field of aesthetics, and has recently celebrated her twenty first year of business in the aesthetic field. She has trained a multitude of doctors, nurses, and PA's in aesthetic techniques. She is an advanced filler injector and an expert in the liquid face lift. She has been an Allergan Platinum and Platinum Plus provider for 15 years.
Dr. Lopez is the most experienced Bellafil injector in New Mexico. She has made skin rejuvenation and acne scar treatment into an art using Bellafil. In addition, to expertise in neurotoxins and filler injections, Dr. Lopez enjoys enhancing facial appearance with the Santa Fe Aqua Gold Facial. Dr. Lopez is an expert in PRP injections for facial rejuvenation and hair growth. Dr. Lopez's 21 years of experience has made Santa Ana Skin Care Clinic a center of excellence for our state of the art treatments and laser services that we provide.
