Northwestern Medicine Opens New Dermatology Clinic in Downtown Geneva

Practice will focus on state-of-the-art cosmetic dermatology as well as medical and surgical services

Area residents interested in minimizing wrinkles or reducing fat through CoolSculpting will soon have access to high-quality services with Northwestern Medicine dermatologists.

Northwestern Medicine Regional Medical Group is launching a new dermatology clinic in the Geneva Historic District to provide the latest in cosmetic dermatology, as well as medical and surgical dermatology services. The practice will be the first at Northwestern Medicine to offer CoolSculpting, a non-surgical fat reduction technique that has grown in popularity.

Located in a remodeled former bank building at 25 N. 3rd St. in Geneva, the clinic has a spa-like feel and state-of-the-art laser technology. Dermatologist Jill Cotseones, DO, will lead the practice. Dr. Cotseones is fellowship-trained in cosmetic and laser surgery from the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Northern California.

“We’re creating a beautiful oasis for people to come and feel great about themselves,” Dr. Cotseones says. “Non-invasive cosmetic procedures have taken off in the past 10 to 15 years, with new technology allowing people to rejuvenate aspects of their appearance.”

Available cosmetic services include CoolSculpting, laser treatments, injectables and HydraFacial. While a major focus will be innovative cosmetic dermatology, medical and surgical services also will be available, including treatment for skin cancer.

Laser treatments can address a variety of dermatological concerns, including acne, sun damage, stretch marks, redness, Rosacea and spider veins. Lasers also have medical uses, such as reducing scarring and treating skin cancer. Dr. Cotseones, who is a breast cancer survivor, hopes that the clinic eventually will work with patients who have scarring from having undergone radiation.

The public is invited to preview the facility at an open house on Oct. 8 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. A ribbon cutting will take place at 5 p.m. with Mayor Kevin Burns, Geneva Chamber of Commerce members and other city officials. The clinic will open to the public on Oct. 26. To schedule an appointment, call 630.315.6500.
