Our Story

The establishment of Beautiful You Dermatology was born out of Crista Wenisch's longtime passion and experience in dermatology. She has had an entrepreneurial drive dating back to side businesses in college and has always dreamed of having her own practice.


The purchase and renovation of the former Montessori building in Big Lake, along with every single piece (oh the hundreds of pieces!) that it takes to build a healthcare practice, has truly been a labor of learning and love.


Crista and her team provide top dermatology care for patients of all ages in Big Lake, MN and surrounding communities in the Twin Cities including but not limited to: Elk River, MN; Princeton, MN; Monticello, MN; Zimmerman, MN.

Beautiful You Dermatology accepts many types and carriers of health insurance. Please call 320.204.4858 to confirm if your insurance is covered!
