A native of Glenview, IL, Dr. Sapna Patel Vaghani is a Board-Certified Pediatric Dermatologist with a passion for working with children and adolescents. She finds that the most rewarding part of being a pediatric dermatologist is seeing the joy and relief on a patient or parent’s face when they come in for a follow-up visit and their skin condition has significantly improved or cleared.

In her experience, Dr. Vaghani has treated many young children and teenagers with skin conditions that make them look different from their peers, whether it may be due to hair loss, the loss of skin color, or a large birthmark. These changes can lead to significant distress for the patients and families. She believes it is important for her patients to know that she is an advocate for them and is there to help guide them through these difficult times and find a treatment plan with successful results.

Dr. Vaghani specializes in the evaluation and treatment of acne, eczema, hair loss, vitiligo, hemangiomas, and vascular malformations, while also performing surgical excisions of moles and birthmarks. She also provides Pulsed Dye Laser treatments for port wine stains and hemangiomas.

Outside of work, Dr. Vaghani lives in Naperville with her husband and 2 young children. They love cooking, baking, dancing, & reading together!

Dr. Vaghani on patient care

I am both a physician and a parent, and I approach each patient as I would my own child. My goal is always to provide quality care and education to patients and families while establishing long-term relationships.
