Your skin is not only your body’s largest organ, but also one for which you have a front-row seat to view the effects – good or bad – of everything from the environment to time to lifestyle upon it. Sometimes, the change is slow and almost imperceptible; other times, change seems to come out of nowhere, almost overnight.
What does your skin say about you? What do you want it to say?
The fact is, when it comes to taking care of your skin, you’re the first line of defense against the harmful effects of the sun and of the wind. Don’t worry, you have a powerful ally right here in Chicago – Dr. Anil Shah. We have a wide selection of powerful, pharmaceutical strength skincare products that can promote healthy skin and prevent the signs of aging. If you’re considering a medical strength skin treatment, whether you’re concerned with acne or those fine lines, Dr. Shah can help.
A lot of people rely on the drug stores and the beauty counters at popular department stores for their skincare needs. And while you may be able to find certain products there to meet your high standards, you know that when it comes to high-quality skin care, physician-strength products offer a significant advantage over the beauty counter skin care product lines.
Dr. Shah is staffed by a team of registered nurses and estheticians. Unlike the discount, big box retailer (where you get what you pay for) and the expensive boutique with some fancy sounding name (where you don’t), Dr. Shah can offer expert advice based on years of experience and stocked with pharmaceutical strength skincare products backed that are backed by scientific evidence.
Our very best skin care products help with the following:
- Photo damage
- Sun protection
- Eye products
- Fine lines
- Acne/Acne scarring
- Facial spots
- Skin brighteners
Remember, a high quality sunscreen is essential for every good skin care regimen!

Aesthetic Skin Philosophy:
Aesthetic Skin represents a customized line of skin care products designed by Dr. Anil Shah. Frustrated by some of the limitations of other products, Dr. Shah spent years designing his own skin care products where he saw areas where skin care could be improved. Aesthetic Skin relies on using pure products with limited additives and scents, giving his line both potency and freshness. Aesthetic Skin is exclusively offered by the practice of Dr. Anil Shah and at Aesthetic Skin Medical Spa.
“At SkinMedica®, we believe everyone deserves to have naturally radiant skin. That’s why we’ve dedicated years of research to formulating advanced skin care products that rejuvenate skin.
Our entire aesthetic product line is based on the science of the skin’s own healing abilities. As skin ages, elasticity decreases, lines appear and overall appearance is diminished. To counteract the effects of time, our skin care products contain restorative ingredients that work below the skin’s surface to regenerate the health of the skin.
Our scientifically proven recovery compounds include essential ingredients ranging from vitamins C and E to retinol to TNS®, our patented blend of growth factors, soluble collagen, antioxidants and matrix proteins. The impact is clear – fine lines are reduced, age spots and discoloration fade, and skin texture and elasticity is improved. All results of our commitment to creating a lifelong skin care
solution for healthier skin.”

Skin Care Products
Dr. Shah offers the latest in skin care products at his office. He actively seeks products which have been thoroughly tested and all products listed in his office have been used by either Dr. Shah himself or the staff.
The area of skin products has flourished over the last 10 years. What skin care products can do is penetrate the skin and treat skin on a continual basis. Skin products can be used for the purpose of treating acne, helping to maintain and in some cases reverse signs of aging, treat pronounced redness, address dark spots and skin discolorations.
Acne skin care products are truly dependent on a patient’s individual skin and body characteristics. They are often used in part of a comprehensive skin care plan which may include therapeutic options as well in the office.
Aging Skin: Maintenance and Prevention
Several pillars of treating aging skin exist: protect, prevent, reverse. In each patient, their individual skin characteristics will guide Dr. Shah on the best treatment option for each patient. Protecting skin (sunscreen blog) involves preventing harmful sunrays to damage and prematurely age the skin while avoiding any harmful additives found in many other sunscreen brands. Preventing aging often involves a combination of skin care products based on the latest retinols, growth factors, and restorative options. Reversing aging often requires the prolonged and consistent use of skin care products and may need to be coupled with other therapeutic interventions.
Dark Spots and Skin Discoloration
Skin may form dark spots and discolorations with age, sun, or may be a result of genetic predisposition. Dr. Shah uses several skin brighteners and lighteners which employ both the latest in technological advance as well as traditional stalwarts which have been updated.
Persistent redness can be induced by external factors or can be a part of a medical condition. Treating redness often involves skin care products which actively address these issues on a daily basis.
