Dr. M. Elizabeth Briden, FAAD, is celebrating 25 years of providing world-class dermatological and cosmetic care at her Edina location!

After attending medical school and completing her residency at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Dr. Briden began private practice in 1986. During that time, she was chief of St.Paul-Ramsey Dermatology Department and was involved with the first anti-aging studies with Retin-A. She also helped develop the superficial glycolic chemical peel, which revolutionized cosmetic treatments.

The original Twin Cities location proved popular for clients seeking both medical and cosmetic skin care, thanks to the wide range of services offered in a relaxing, professional environment.

In 1997, she opened her own clinic, ADCI in Edina, Shakopee and Chaska and last year expanded to include a Waconia location.

ADCI offers complete medical and surgical dermatology services, as well as comprehensive cosmetic services, including Botox, fillers, laser, HydraFacials and chemical peels. She is accompanied by her two accomplished P.A.’s,  Melissa Waterman, PA-C and Denise Barnhardt, PA-C, who have been with Dr. Briden for 21 and 14 years, respectively.
