Learn How and Why Dr. Carl Thornfeldt Started CT Derm in Fruitland, Idaho
At CT Derm, our story is simple: As the premier board-certified dermatologist in the Treasure Valley, Dr. Carl Thornfeldt is on a mission to stamp out skin cancer and other dermatological diseases. Understanding your skin and how it works is his specialty. He takes great pride in delivering exceptional care and leads a team of highly trained professionals chosen because of their same commitment and skill to excellence.
Dr. Carl Thornfeldt opened his dermatology office in 1983. Originally located in Ontario, Oregon, it was first called Treasure Valley Dermatology Clinic. In the many years since he treated his first patient, Dr. Thornfeldt and his family have witnessed firsthand the growth and progression of the rural area he chose to serve. In 2002, his wife Marlene and he decided that a bigger facility was needed to house the growing practice. Hence, they opened the doors to CT Derm’s current location in Fruitland, Idaho, in 2003.
Our Story: Epionce
Dr. Thornfeldt has also developed a skincare product line, investing in nearly a decade of basic research and several years of rigorous clinical trials to ensure it has proven safe and effectively provides anti-aging and disease treatment and prevention. Based on real new science and using unique natural botanicals, Epionce products penetrate to repair and maximize your skin barrier function and reverse destructive inflammation. The Epionce skin wellness line is highly adaptable to any skin type in any climate, but is particularly formulated for our climatic conditions. Epionce products have received multiple national awards, including America’s Best Moisturizer by Women’s Health in August 2020.
Our Story: The MedSpa by CT Derm
Furthermore, Dr. Thornfeldt established a medspa—The MedSpa by CT Derm—to safely satisfy clients' desires to have access to procedures that would improve their overall appearance. Although he had offered chemical peels and various laser devices for several years at CT Derm, these strategies were mostly employed for the treatment of skin diseases. So it was natural, with the advancement of medical esthetics, to act upon requests for more options and deliver a full-service medical spa that would put equal focus on exceptional results and client education. With the inception of The MedSpa by CT Derm, Dr. Thornfeldt has established a team of professionals who are ready to help you with your skincare concerns.
