SkinCare Physicians

Teaching & Training Center

ASDS AccreditationEach year, SkinCare Physicians trains three board eligible dermatologists in its Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Fellowship program which is accredited by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS). One of these fellows is also trained more extensively in Mohs surgery under a fellowship program approved by the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS) and also certified by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The programs are under the direction of doctors Kenneth A. Arndt, Jeffrey S. Dover, Michael S. Kaminer, and Thomas E. Rohrer. All are internationally recognized experts in their field.

This includes hands-on experience in procedures including injection of soft tissue fillers such as Restylane®, fat transplantation, use of botulinum toxins, sclerotherapy and endovenous vein ablation, liposuction, Contour Threadlifts, and laser resurfacing.

The fellows also spend a good deal of time during the year working with our two Mohs surgeons, Doctors Kaminer and Rohrer, perfecting technique and skills in dermatologic surgery. In addition, the fellows receive in depth hands-on experience with the over twenty lasers and related devices present at SkinCare Physicians. The devices include Intense Pulsed Lights, Q-switched and long pulsed Alexandrite lasers, Q-switched and long pulsed Ruby lasers, Q-switched and long pulsed Nd:YAG lasers, Pulsed Dye lasers, KTP (532nm), mid infrared lasers, and CO2, Erbium and fractional lasers for resurfacing and rejuvenation. Some of the other technologies include radiofrequency, LEDs, and plasma devices. The fellow has the opportunity to use the latest technology available anywhere in the world.

By the end of the fellowship year, fellows have acquired the knowledge and skills necessary to perform all of the above procedures, and have a tremendous amount of hands-on experience with all of them. One recent fellow wrote: “What an incredible year![…] I am so excited by how much I learned from the nuances of surgical and cosmetic dermatology, to the art of dealing with patient, to the business of practice management. […] This year has completely transformed my practice of dermatology, and I am forever grateful.”

This year’s fellows are:

  • Jessica Labadie, MD – Dr. Jessica Labadie is one of our Cosmetic Surgery and Laser fellows. She completed her undergraduate education at Brown University, graduating with honors in Neuroscience. Jessica then went on to obtain her M.D. degree at the University of California, Irvine. In medical school she was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) honor society and graduated with distinction in research, leadership and service. She recently completed her Dermatology residency at Northwestern University in Chicago where she served as chief resident.
  • Jacob Inda, MD – Dr. Jacob Inda is our other Cosmetic Surgery and Laser fellow. Following his undergraduate education at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, he attended medical school at the University of Wisconsin, where he obtained his M.D. degree. He subsequently completed his Dermatology residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. He then practiced as a board-certified dermatologist within the Mayo Clinic Health System before starting his fellowship at SkinCare Physicians.
  • Erika Hagstrom, MD – Dr. Erika Hagstrom is our Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery/Laser fellow. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame and then completed her M.D. and M.A. in Bioethics and Health Policy at Loyola University of Chicago.

SkinCare Physicians also has a very active research facility, and usually has between three and five ongoing clinical studies. The fellows are actively involved in these clinical studies, and often gain significant and important experience with many new laser and therapeutic devices through hands-on experience in the clinical studies center.
