About Me

dermatologist dr amy brodskyOver the past two decades, Dr. Amy Brodsky has earned a reputation as one of the country’s foremost rising stars in the dermatological field. Dr. Brodsky is widely recognized as an artist when it comes to understanding facial anatomy and the nuances of treating aging faces. Her cosmetic acumen and early adoption of skincare innovations quickly gained the attention of top media outlets in Chicago, which resulted in ongoing guest appearances on television networks like ABC, NBC, WGN, Fox and The U.

Dr. Brodsky has dedicated her career to the research and practice of innovative dermatologic treatments and the clinical implications of cosmetics. After graduating from the University of Illinois with a degree in bioengineering, Dr. Brodsky attended medical school at The University of Chicago. She distinguished herself early on by winning the Women’s Dermatologic Society Fellowship to study clinical trials on Cosmeceuticals before graduating at the top of her class with the highest honors.

Dr. Brodsky earned her certification from the American Board of Dermatology in 2002 and opened her own practice in 2007. She is currently affiliated with Advocate Lutheran General Hospital. Thanks to her widely recognized expertise, she has been invited onto several pharmaceutical advisory boards. In 2012, Dr. Brodsky founded Pediatric Sun Protection Foundation, Inc. (PSPF), a philanthropic endeavor born out of her passion for skin cancer prevention and desire to educate others about effective sun protection for children.

Most recently, Dr. Brodsky founded The Sun Hero Program, and has partnered with Cerave and LaRoche Posay with a mission to raise awareness of the importance of sun safety in childhood, increase adoption of sun safety habits, and to motivate change that will reduce the amount of skin cancer.

Dr. Brodsky is also the founder of Sun Safety Day at Wrigley field, a program that is expanding to multiple stadiums in 2024.

As Dr. Brodsky celebrates the twenty-year milestone of her journey as a dermatologist, she is compelled to share with her patients her burning passion that has been ignited within her — the need for a global conversation on sun protection and skincare. She now speaks globally for L’Oréal and the American academy of aesthetic medicine world congress.

“Over the course of my career, I have witnessed firsthand the transformative power of informed skincare practices. Skin, our body’s largest organ, plays a crucial role not only in our physical health but also in our mental well-being and self-esteem. As we traverse diverse climates, lifestyles, and cultures, it becomes increasingly evident that a universal dialogue on sun protection is not just beneficial; it is imperative,” says Dr. Brodsky.

The sun, while a source of life and vitality, can also pose significant threats to our skin health. The rise in skin-related ailments, including melanoma and premature aging, underscores the need for comprehensive education on sun protection. My experiences with patients from various corners of the globe have reinforced my belief that knowledge is the most potent shield against sun damage.

Dr. Brodsky is a mother of two, a wife, an avid oil painter, biker, runner and swimmer based in Chicago.

Dr. Brodsky was able to help me with a rash/skin issue that two providers prior to her took two months of prescribing creams/ointments that never solved the problem. Dr. Brodsky was able to quickly assess and prescribe an antibiotic that started working within a week. Thank you for your help! Dr. Brodsky knows her stuff.
