“Cosmetic dermatology allows me to combine my technical skills with creativity and artistry to create work that both my patients and I am proud of. It is also a rapidly evolving field of medicine; I love that there is always something new to research.”
Lauren was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, and attended Miami University for undergraduate, where she received her Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering. While she enjoyed her studies and research at The Cleveland Clinic as a biomedical engineer, she found the patient-centered component of her education to be the most fulfilling.
After college, Lauren moved to Chicago, Illinois where she attended graduate school and completed her Masters of Medical Science in Physician Assistant Studies. She began her career as a physician assistant on a multi-specialty surgery team. She covered a wide range of services — from trauma surgery to cardiovascular surgery to plastic surgery. It was during this time that she realized her love for the coalescence of art and medicine.
She went on to pursue a career in cosmetic dermatology, as it allowed her to exercise both. After working for a busy practice in Chicago, Lauren was introduced to Skin Pharm and hasn’t looked back since. She loves the environment Skin Pharm creates for their patients and the relaxing, collaborative atmosphere it provides for healthcare practitioners.
A note from Lauren –
I believe the beauty of subtlety is the key to aging gracefully, and achieving those subtle, natural results is something we do really well at Skin Pharm.
