Kelly Haege, LPN, is the cosmetic coordinator at our Eden Prairie location. Kelly graduated from Hennepin Technical College in the spring of 2001, earning her licensed practical nursing degree. She began work at Associated Skin Care Specialists shortly after graduation. Her focus was in medical and surgical dermatology. Kelly enjoyed the challenge of mastering the field of dermatologic nursing.

Since her return, Kelly continues to work in medical and surgical dermatology. In addition, she has expanded her practice to cosmetic dermatology. Through continuing education, Kelly has attended numerous specialized training programs focusing on aesthetic treatments and products. She earned her advanced laser certification in 2016.
