Dr. Kimberly Jerdan, a renowned dermatologist, is the driving force behind Jerdan Dermatology Laser and Aesthetic Institute. Her journey to success began in rural Illinois, where she spent her formative years before embarking on an impressive academic journey. Dr. Jerdan pursued a well-rounded education at Duke University, juggling pre-medicine studies with a major in Spanish and minors in History and Chemistry.
She completed her medical degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford where she received the Adolph A. Rostenberg Jr. Award for Outstanding Student in Dermatology. Dr. Jerdan completed her dermatology residency at the University of Illinois College (UIC) of Medicine at Chicago, where she was selected as Chief Resident her senior year of residency training. Driven by a passion for cosmetic dermatology, she secured a year-long cosmetic and laser surgery fellowship at the Gateway Aesthetic Institute and Laser Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
She has published numerous articles for peer-reviewed journals and presented the findings at local and national dermatology meetings on general dermatology, cosmetic dermatology, and laser surgery.
Aside from treating general dermatology issues, Dr. Jerdan believes in a synergistic approach to the practice of cosmetic dermatologic surgery by complementing a maintenance program with the latest advances in dermatologic surgery and technology. She believes this unique skill set should be done by those trained for this with an artistic eye and emphasis on natural beauty to make patients become a more rejuvenated and refreshed version of themselves. She adheres to the Hippocratic oath, prioritizing patient well-being over cosmetic interventions. Her patients appreciate her transparency, often joking that she is the “worst salesman” as she will not oversell and compromise a natural look.
