Dr. Gina Lesnik

Medical Director

 

Seventeen years ago, Dr. Gina Lesnik opened Dermatique with a mission to change lives and help people feel more comfortable in their own skin. Today, her practice has grown to include thousands of patients who have become part of the Dermatique family.

 Dr. Lesnik understands how daunting it can be for a patient to come into a medical spa, which is why she works hard to create a safe and inviting environment for all her clients — from the receptionist on the phone, to the office decor, and her whole team — they strive to make sure everyone feels welcome and at ease.

 At Dermatique, Dr. Lesnik believes in providing natural-looking results that enhance one’s appearance without looking too different than before treatment. She specializes in offering anti-aging and non-surgical solutions tailored to each individual’s needs and lifestyle. Most importantly, she encourages her patients to embrace their unique beauty and characteristics that make them special and one-of-a-kind.

 By combining her skill set with genuine care and compassion, Dr. Lesnik strives to inspire confidence in all of her patients so they can look forward with hope towards a brighter future ahead.

Erika Elizalde

Front Desk Coordinator

 As a bilingual member of the team, I understand the importance of making patients feel comfortable and at ease during their visits. When they speak to me in their first language, I can see their relief and appreciation for being understood and heard. If you prefer to communicate in Spanish, please don’t hesitate to ask for me – Erika. It would be my pleasure to assist you in any way that I can.

One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is the opportunity to connect with patients on a personal level. I genuinely care about their stories and the reasons why they have come to us. By learning about their life and culture, I am better equipped to understand their unique needs and provide the best possible care. Even after their visit concludes, I remember their faces and the conversations we shared.

What truly stands out to me about the Dermatique family is the authenticity and relatability of each team member. We all have our own insecurities and struggles with self-image, just like every patient who walks through our doors. By embracing our imperfections and being real with one another, we create a safe and supportive environment for both staff and patients. It’s an honor to work alongside my incredible D Squad teammates and be a part of an organization that values empathy, diversity, and self-acceptance.

Love Erika
