Led by talented artisan Dr. Sophie Simeakis, the staff at Sofia’s Med Spa & Beauty Oasis is dedicated to making your visit the most beautifying and refreshing you have had.
Sophie Simeakis-Borrelli, D.O. – medical director
Dr. Sophie, as she is affectionately known, is a cosmetic doctor specializing in facial rejuvenation and esthetic artistry. In seven short years, she has become a household name in Chicago’s south suburbs for laser treatments and cosmetic injections to enhance body and facial beauty. Her fame is spreading and she has added Las Vegas to her venue. Her clients come from around the world.
Dr. Sophie went to medical school at Midwestern University intending to specialize in plastic surgery. Children and family came first so she switched to emergency room and trauma care. For more than 20 years, she has worked 12-hour-night shifts to enable her to be home during the day. Her schedule is complemented by her ER physician husband who works days to help provide 24-hour parenting.
Over the years, her interest in cosmetic procedures remained strong so drawing upon her surgical and acute care experience, she opened her spa. Courses in laser esthetics, dermal filler injections, skin care and anti-aging treatments and hormonal therapy have helped her develop into a human sculptor and medical artist.
Dr. Sophie’s work led to her spa becoming one of a few in the world to be an Artefill®* Center of Excellence. Artefill is a leading-edge, long-lasting dermal filler that can last for seven years. Combined with laser treatments, it allows Dr. Sophie to perform face lifts comparable to plastic surgery … under local anesthesia. This means less downtime, less pain and lower costs for patients.
Dr. Sophie also works as an emergency medicine and trauma senior attending physician at Cook County Health and Hospital Systems. She is a Clinical Instructor and Assitant Professor for the Emergency Medicine and Trauma Residency Program.
Dr. Sophie’s trademark passion and enthusiasm for each patient provides the outstanding individual care that Dr. Sofia’s Med Spa & Beauty Oasis has become known for internationally.
