Background

Dr. Andrea Hui is a board-certified dermatologist and a fellowship-trained dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Hui is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancers, Mohs micrographic surgery, and reconstructive surgery. She has also received years of extensive training in cosmetic dermatology, including neuromodulators, fillers, hair restoration, and lasers.

Dr. Hui was born and raised in Chicago. She completed her medical training at University of Illinois, graduating at the top of her class as a recipient of the Alpha Omega Alpha award. After finishing her medicine internship at University of Chicago-Evanston Hospital, she moved to New York City to complete her dermatology residency at SUNY Downstate, serving as chief resident. Dr. Hui then received further training in Mohs surgery and cosmetic dermatology in a procedural fellowship at SUNY Downstate with the past president of the American Academy of Dermatology, Dr. Daniel Siegel. Dr. Hui has trained extensively in cosmetic dermatology with a focus on injectables with many well-known dermatologists, including Dr. Susan Weinkle, Dr. Mary Lupo, Dr. Heidi Waldorf, and Dr. Vic Narurkar. Dr. Hui has authored over 20 papers and book chapters, with a special focus on acne and integrative medicine. She is dedicated to helping her patients achieve and maintain beautiful skin through education and a personalized skincare plan.

As a child, Dr. Hui developed a love for art and music. She spent her time drawing and studying the human form, practicing proportions, lines, and the play of shadows and light. Dr. Hui is an avid photographer who strives to capture beauty through her lens. She believes photography is especially important to help patients follow their aesthetic progress through time. As an accomplished concert pianist, Dr. Hui also brings a unique artistic touch to surgical and cosmetic dermatology. She owes much of her surgical and aesthetic skills to her continued passion and practice of the arts.

In her spare time, Dr. Hui enjoys spending time with her her family and friends. She also enjoys fitness and traveling.
