Discover for yourself the amazing benefits of our different body contouring treatment options.

Spring is here and we’re already getting to enjoy a few seasonally warm, sunny days. It also reminds us that summer is almost here. If you want to feel confident wearing your favorite summer apparel, swim trunks or bikinis, our Willowbrook, IL, dermatologists Dr. Jeffrey & Toula Berti offer a variety of body contouring options that could help you get ready for summer.


Target Fat!

One of the biggest benefits of the body contouring treatment options we offer our Willowbrook, IL, patients is that it can easily spot treat and reduce fat in areas where diet and exercise alone just aren’t cutting it. We know that some trouble areas like the stomach or love handles may not respond to your daily sweat sessions and a plant-based diet, but body contouring can help to get rid of fat in these stubborn areas to give you the ideal figure you deserve.


No Need to Change Your Routine

You have a routine that works for you. Maybe you love going to the gym four days a week. We understand how difficult it can be to disrupt your routine. That’s why many people decide against cosmetic surgery because they don’t want to have to wait weeks to drive comfortably, go back to their boxing class or just do the things they love to do. This is another reason to consider body contouring. Procedures like tissue augmentation and Coolsculpting offer safe, effective ways to reshape and contour your body without the downtime.


If you’re planning a vacation this summer and you want to feel confident in your skin, our Willowbrook, IL, dermatologists offer a variety of cosmetic dermatology treatment options to help you look and feel your best. To schedule a consultation with us, call Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery today at (630) 321-0303.

Say goodbye to stubborn areas of fat with this painless non-surgical procedure.
Are you finding that despite eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly that it’s still not enough to tame those love handles or to achieve that perfectly flat stomach? There are countless men and women that still have trouble with those pesky pockets of fat regardless of how healthy their lifestyle may be. If this sounds like you, our South Barrington and Willowbrook, IL, dermatologists Dr. Jeffrey Berti and Dr. Toula Berti are here to tell you how they could freeze away the fat and improve your figure.

What is CoolSculpting?
This non-invasive FDA approved cosmetic system uses a gentle and safe cooling system that is directed over the treatment area through the skin to target, freeze and safely destroy the fat cells. This procedure is able to reduce fat cells by about 20 to 25 percent per treatment area.

What happens during the CoolSculpting process?
The first step is to come in for a consultation so that our skin doctors can sit down with you and determine your treatment goals. This procedure can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Once we have created the proper treatment plan we will also determine if you require more than one CoolSculpting session in order to achieve the optimal results. Depending on your specific needs, we may be able to treat more than one area at a time.

During the actual treatment, a special pad will be placed over the area and the handheld CoolSculpting device will transmit the proper amount of cooling to the area to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells. In most cases, patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment, as CoolSculpting boasts little to no downtime.

When will I notice results?
Many patients report seeing results around three weeks after their treatment; however, you won’t see significant changes until about 2 months. Even then, your body will still be removing those unwanted fat cells for up to 6 months after your cooling procedure.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
It’s important to note that this treatment isn’t right for everyone. An ideal candidate will be someone who already has maintained a healthy diet and regular exercise and despite that continues to have problem pockets of unwanted fat. CoolSculpting should not be considered a weight loss treatment; however, some patients who are motivated to becoming more fit, will utilize the extra fat loss as a boost to keeping their commitment to a healthier lifestyle. CoolSculpting treatments will help to get you one step closer to the more ideal shape and form you want.

Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery is proud to provide both South Barrington and Willowbrook, IL, with comprehensive skin care to patients of all ages. If you want to learn more about CoolSculpting and whether it’s right for you, call (630) 321-0303 for Willowbrook and (847) 304-0303 for South Barrington today to schedule your consultation.

Summer is in full swing! Are you spending your summer enjoying the heat and showing off your beach body or are you spending it hiding in an oversized t-shirt once again?
If you've tried every diet and work out plan under the sun and still are not seeing results, it is time for something new. This summer, get Coolsculptingrid of those problem areas by visiting Dr. Jeffrey Berti, M.D. and Dr. Toula Romas Berti, M.D., at Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery, Ltd. in Willowbrook for Coolsculpting!

What is Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is an FDA approved fat reduction procedure, developed by scientists at the Wellam Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss solution for those who are obese, but it can smooth out unsightly bulges in those stubborn spots that never seem to go away on their own. This includes the flank (love handles), abdomen, thighs and stubborn "back fat."
Coolsculpting targets fat cells underneath the skin with precisely controlled FDA approved cooling. The treated fat cells are cooled to a specific temperature, then naturally are eliminated over the course of a few weeks. Over time, your body naturally and safetly processes the fat and eliminates these dead fat cells leaving a more sculpted body.

What are the Benefits of Coolsculpting?
The biggest benefit of visiting Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery, Ltd. in Willowbrook for Coolsculpting is that the procedure works! The dermatologists at Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery will create a treatment plan based on your individual goals. The amount of time for each procedure is different for each person depending on the number of areas being treated during the visit. But do not worry about the length of the visit. Since this is a non-invasive procedure, people have been known to read, work, or even take naps during an appointment.

You may feel minor discomfort beginning of the procedure, but that soon dissipates.  Side effects are typically minor and patients often return to work after their session.
If you're ready to finally get a beach body you can be proud to show off, Coolsculpting from Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery, Ltd. in Willowbrook may be just right for you. Give us a call to learn more or to set up an appointment today!
