Dermatology and cosmetic surgery deserve careful thought and methodical preparation. Dr. Joel Schlessinger has been the first name in dermatology and cosmetic surgery for sometime in the Omaha area. His Skin Specialists office, located at 2802 Oak View Dr., is a trustworthy and reliable option for dermatology and cosmetic dermatology needs. Schlessinger has earned a reputation for being one of the best in his field not only in Nebraska, but also on a national level. He has been recognized by a host of national publications, including Glamour and The New York Times, and has been recognized 10 years in a row as the best cosmetic surgeon in town by Omaha Magazine ’s Best of Omaha poll. “I think the difference is that we are operating not only on a local level but also on a national and international scale,” Dr. Schlessinger says. “Our focus has always been on great customer service. But that’s also impacted now by our presence in the national scene through lovelyskin.com. There’s always been an attitude among our staff that they’re part of a large organization with very high standards.” With over 55 employees, Skin Specialists and their new retail store across the street Lovely Skin (which celebrated its grand opening Nov. 11), offer every imaginable skin care option and product, along with professional and well-thought-out surgical options. Skin Specialists not only offers general dermatology and cosmetic dermatology services, they are also one of the largest clinical research facilities in the country, performing more clinical research than Creighton University and the University of Nebraska combined. They also have an attached world-class day spa, Aesthetica Day Spa where the staff of three specially trained by Dr. Schlessinger full-time estheticians do procedures that not only pamper but also have lasting medical and cosmetic benefits.
