The Skin Care Center

For over 20 years, we’ve been meeting the needs of Chicago’s skin care patients.

At The Skin Care Center, board-certified dermatologists provide expert skin care to patients in medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology. Our highly trained staff of physician assistants, dermatology-certified registered nurses, and aestheticians work together to effectively treat your skin problems.

For almost 20 years, aesthetic skin care patients in the Chicagoland area have sought our help to look their best and maintain a youthful appearance longer. Our dermatologists evaluate your skin needs to develop an individualized plan that works for you.

Our doctors use the latest techniques in skin diagnosis, the best of modern dermatology medicines and state-of-the-art surgery if necessary, as well as recognized natural and alternative medicine treatments.

The Skin Care Centers use the best dermatology-specific electronic medical records and we work in a virtually paperless environment. Your medical file reports and accounts are available instantly to any of our dermatologists 24 hours a day. Try our patient portal at your convenience.

With early and late office hours, convenient locations, and plenty of parking, The Skin Care Center is here to serve your needs in Lakeview, Lake Forest, and Glenview.

Our mission is to provide Wellness for the Whole Skin.
