Facial Rejuvenation In South Barrington & Willowbrook, IL

Many people would say that the quality they want most in their skin is softness, but have you ever considered how tough your skin is? Just think about it—what other part of your body is exposed to the sun, weather, and bacteria as often and in such great quantities as much as your skin is? Even if you may not realize it, your skin takes a beating almost every day. It is important to take good care of your skin, as it is usually the first line of defense from the elements that can cause greater harm to your body.

Your skin has always taken care of you. What are you doing to take care of it?

What Causes Skin Irregularities?

Obviously, skin type varies from person to person. Your genetics, age, health, and lifestyle all factor into the composition and complexion of your skin. Freckles, for example, are one type of irregularity that occurs in the pigment of the skin. Acne and wrinkles are also common skin conditions that affect the overall appearance of the face as well as the rest of body. As people age, their skin often loses its tautness and its tone or color may start to dull. Luckily, these conditions are all very treatable with skin rejuvenation therapies.

Skin rejuvenation comes in many forms and can correct or mask even the most troublesome of skin irregularities, including scars. Many people with vascular conditions have also had success in fading the visibility of their blood vessels through their skin with skin rejuvenation techniques.

What is Skin Or Facial Rejuvenation?

Also known as “resurfacing,” skin rejuvenation therapies often include laser, light, or mechanical treatment methods to help bring life back to the skin. Laser treatment has been used effectively to correct pigmentation disorders and cover scars.

The success behind laser skin resurfacing is all thanks to the powerful light beam we use. By sending short pulses of light over the skin, we can remove the outermost layers of the skin that tend to contain the most damage. Removing dead layers of skin and heating up the new layers underneath can help to stimulate the production of collagen, which can boost skin’s elasticity and tone while also improving these common skin conditions:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Liver spots
  • Superficial scars
  • A dull complexion
  • Warts
  • Birthmarks
  • Enlarged pores

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!
