Andy Ferski has had an inherent passion for aesthetics and dermatology since he was a child. He’s always been artistically driven and found aesthetics to be the perfect combination of art and medicine – allowing him to pursue his passion while caring for others.
Andy received his undergraduate degree in microbiology at the University of Minnesota. He then went on to acquire a master’s degree in applied clinical research at St. Cloud State before moving to Chicago, IL. During his time in Chicago, he completed a second master’s in physician assistant studies from the Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine where he completed specialized training in outpatient skin surgery and dermatology in preparation for his aesthetic career.
Today, Andy stands out as a practitioner for his gentle touch and calming demeanor – qualities that make his patients feel comfortable and confident. He has devoted himself to continuous learning and research so he can provide the best treatment for each patient.
Andy has a strong passion for light- and laser-based treatments, particularly IPL and laser resurfacing, because he believes these to be two of the most impactful treatments for the right candidates.
When it comes to home care, Andy believes it is very important to understand not every product works for every individual. A product that produces incredible results for one person might contribute to dry or oily skin, acne breakouts, or subpar results in another. His philosophy on skincare and at-home products is based on years of trial and error for sensitive, temperamental skin. He has found that having a set of two to three key products can be affordable, help dramatically improve skin texture and tone, and greatly enhance the results of other aesthetic services a patient may be interested in.
When he’s not helping patients at SkinSpirit, Andy enjoys cooking and playing classical violin.
