Dr. Reyes-Villa is the Medical Director and the team leader at Cataleya Aesthetics. Dr. Reyes-Villa graduated from medical school in 1996 in his native Colombia. During his training and early practice years, he worked closely with numerous plastic surgeons and was impressed and inspired by aesthetic medicine’s power to improve people’s lives. Dr. Reyes-Villa moved to the United States and completed residency in Family Medicine at AMITA Health Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center in Chicago in 2008.

A year later, Dr. Reyes-Villa teamed up with his wife Olga, a Registered Nurse, and founded Cataleya Aesthetics.

He focuses on detailed assessment and collaboration with the client in developing a treatment plan for the best outcomes.

Dr. Reyes-Villa loves cinema and the fine arts. In addition, he enjoys playing various musical instruments, composing songs, and getting his three children involved. During your visit, you might hear some movie quotations and will have a laugh because he believes that humor and positivity are integral parts of communication.
