VitalSkin Dermatology, a world-class dermatology and aesthetics practice management organization, celebrates another growth milestone with the affiliation of Dermatology + Aesthetics. Founded by Drs. Keren and Meyer Horn and Dr. Neha Robinson in 2007 in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, Dermatology + Aesthetics has expanded to become one of the area’s top dermatology practices.

“My team and I are excited to be a part of VitalSkin.” Dr. Keren Horn said. “Patient care has always been our focus, and with that, it’s been our continual goal to expand our care to others in need. Now with VitalSkin’s support, we’ll be able to amplify our world-class care even further and operationally, build upon our processes, systems and technology.”

Dermatology + Aesthetics provides world-class medical, surgical and cosmetic skin care. After building an excellent reputation and extensive referrals in Wicker Park and its surrounding communities, the team expanded their number of providers and services, including relocating to a 19,000 square foot plus facility in the Elston Corridor neighborhood of Chicago. There, the team features six board certified dermatologists, four physician assistants and nurse practitioners, one laser specialist and two aestheticians. In addition, the new location includes their skin care store, skin1765, which offers home care solutions for clients and patients.

“By building our team with a wide variety of providers and specialists, we can give patients a unique, all-inclusive experience,” Dr. Meyer Horn said. “Having the ability to recruit top-level talent in different clinical areas has been important for our growth. We look forward to expanding that ability with VitalSkin’s resources.”

Established in 2019, VitalSkin was designed with dermatologists at the center – aligning with their goals, supporting their needs and creating personalized plans to help them develop their practice and provide exceptional patient care. VitalSkin is led by Todd Petersen, chief executive officer. Alongside Petersen is Dan Wiens, chief financial officer, Jeremy Youse, MD, chief medical officer and a full leadership team. The entire leadership team is experienced and well-versed in leading physician practice management firms.

“We’ve been incredibly fortunate to see so much success while helping improve the health of others,” added Dr. Robinson. “It was important for us to partner with an organization with financial flexibility, stability and the means to offer long-term partnership. VitalSkin can do that.”

In addition to the Dermatology + Aesthetics affiliation, VitalSkin will soon be opening their next dermatology office in Decatur, IL. They recently opened a new office in Mattoon, IL this past December and affiliated with Louisville Dermatology in Louisville, KY in November.

“The team at Dermatology + Aesthetics is highly regarded in the Chicago communities and brings a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience in the field,” said Petersen. “Their commitment to patient care, ongoing growth and clinical quality make them an excellent fit with our organization. I can’t wait to see what great things we accomplish together.”
