Dr. Gina Lesnik
Looking back 15 years ago when I opened Dermatique, I planned to change lives. I could have never imagined how this little medical spa and thousands of patients later has changed me.
It’s hard when we feel uncomfortable about the way we look. I remember clearly how that feels dealing with my skin issues, and I use those feelings to help my patients.
I’ve worked hard at creating a safe comfortable environment for my patients. Our office is warm inviting, from the person on the phone, our office decor our whole team. We want our patients to feel like our friends, girlfriend to girlfriend or just friends. I understand it can be intimidating walking into a med spa and I certainly don’t want our patients to be intimidated.
I can honestly say my goal for my patients is to look natural, not different, offering anti-aging non-surgical solutions for every decade you may be in. In addition to that, most times it’s the little corrections we do that can impact our overall appearance.
I will take you on the journey of solutions best fit for you, & your lifestyle. On a side note, the most beautiful thing about you is there is only one of you, and that is beautiful.
I hope to inspire you with more confidence.

Board Certified Nurse Practitioner
My name is Alexandra Anderson, but please call me Alex!
First and foremost, like many of you, I am a busy mom/wife/daughter/sister/friend just trying to balance it all! I am a mom of the two most amazing 2 year old boy/girl twins, who are the absolute love’s of my life! I also enjoy fitness (I love going for a run), healthy living, interior decorating and really good skincare.
A little bit about my credentials…
I am a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner. I have over 10 years of experience in healthcare. I have 8 years of bedside nursing experience in medical/surgical and neurology settings and have been fortunate enough to spend some time in leadership and management roles. I received my Bachelors of Science in Nursing and Psychology from Elmhurst College and received my Masters Degree from the Family Nurse Practitioner program at Olivet.
Personally, as a young woman I have battled with my own skin issues, such as acne breakouts, scarring, and redness. My personal struggle with skin led me to the practice of Aesthetic Medicine.
I completed injectable training February 2019 and have had the privilege of learning from Dr. Lesnik, Lori, NP and Margo our Nurse Injector since joining Dermatique!
As your provider I understand the importance of wanting to look like yourself, rather than different or unnatural. Achieving a very natural look, accompanied with great skin is really important to me.
I believe in educating patients, providing honest, open communication and individualizing care to help each patient look and feel their best.
I could not be more excited to be a part of the Dermatique team!
So if you see me around town pushing my double stroller be sure to stop me and say Hi!
