A graduate of the University of Illinois College of Medicine with a residency and Mohs training at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Dr. Swengel comes with a wildly impressive resume. A member of two honor societies, and a fellow at the American College of Mohs Surgery and American Society for Dermatological Surgery, his background is flawless—but not nearly as much as the results his patients are raving about.

Dr. Swengel was chief of the dermatology department at The Permanente Medical Group, Inc., for 23 years. He founded the Mohs Surgery Unit at San Jose Kaiser in 1980, where he subsequently became a medical director.
Dr. Swengel helps ensure that surgery is the last resort. “I believe I can keep a patient from going under the knife for an easy 10 years if the patient is willing to get on a regularly prescribed skin regimen,” he says. That’s not bragging; it’s just real talk.
Dr. Swengel has seen too many people depending on makeup and filters to fake great skin. Makeup should be fun, not a dreaded daily task. Ditch the quest for the daily perfect cat eye and get a glow from the inside out. All it takes is the right regimen, and Dr. Swengel can help any patient find it.
For decades, Dr. Swengel has dedicated himself to always testing the latest products and technology. He blends a background in precise surgical dermatology, particularly with Mohs surgery, with aesthetic dermatology. Having great, glowing, youthful skin isn’t just about looking your best or having a fantastic base for makeup. It’s connected to a person’s self-esteem and sense of self-worth. It also doesn’t hurt that gorgeous skin helps you rack up those likes.
