Medical dermatology – including acne

Dr. Fabi was born and raised in Chicago. Experiencing bad childhood eczema and cystic young adult acne, Dr. Fabi recognized early the power such superficial conditions can have on one’s self-esteem. She was inspired to go into a profession where she could help people look and feel better. She obtained her medical degree and graduated at the top of her class at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, where she stayed to complete her residency training in dermatology. Further cosmetic surgery training included the completion of a fellowship through the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.

Her early interest in medical research took her to Mali, Africa, through a program sponsored by the National Institute of Health, where she contributed to the research and development of the malaria vaccine with the hopes of serving a deprived population. Her continued interest in global dermatologic conditions also led her to spend time at the National Skin Centre in Singapore.

Dr. Fabi enjoys being philanthropic in the community by volunteering her time to increase skin cancer awareness through programs like the Skin Cancer Foundation “Road to Healthy Skin Tour,” ASDS free skin cancer screens, complimentary breast cancer tattoo removal through ASLMS, and pro bono scar treatments through the Wounded Warrior program as well as annually donating and fundraising at the practice for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in San Diego.

Dr. Fabi loves cosmetic dermatology, and in her free time, she devotes time to teaching colleagues worldwide about injectables, lasers, and devices so that collectively, they participate in keeping patients looking natural while helping them look more refreshed. Dr. Fabi enjoys spending time with her son and family, friend, traveling, reading, and practicing yoga. Being of Hispanic descent, Dr. Fabi is fluent in Spanish.
