About Catara Skin Rejuvenation Spa

Catara is a full service skin rejuvenation spa located in Chicago's Gold Cost neighborhood as well as in Algonquin. We are committed to enhancing and refreshing your skin by providing services and products for anti aging, skin texture, acne, dryness, sun damage, rosacea and scaring.

Life long resident of the Fox River Valley, Cathy worked for over 20 years in the photographic business at Interesting Developments Photography in Algonquin. Throughout those years she was able to use lighting and retouching to correct skin imperfections on hundreds of people in their portraits. Her passion for skin care originated here with the ability to correct a person’s complexion in a photograph and help them experience a renewed sense of confidence. This desire to help people look and feel better about themselves inspired her to open Catara. Cathy is passionate about helping anyone improve their skin and educating them on the correct skincare regimen for individual concerns.

The skin care industry has made tremendous advances recently to improve skin with many different kinds of imperfections. Knowing they could now help improve skin imperfections long term, Cathy has became very enthusiastic about skin care because she saw first hand how beautiful skin can improve the quality of one’s life even in the short term.

Catara’s mission is to improve the quality of life of any individual who is not completely content with their skin.


Catara Medical Group, LLC., is owned and operated by a certified aesthetic plastic surgeon, licensed by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
