Have your skin examined with a melanoma-detecting device by our board-certified dermatologists. We will review our findings and discuss with you normal and abnormal moles. We are the best at reassuring you when your skin spots are normal. We are the ones that diagnose those early irregular spots that need urgent removal. If suspicious or bothersome moles need removal, we typically remove them during the same visit utilizing the latest techniques. If necessary, we schedule a timely return visit to our office where we will remove the mole.

Do you have wrinkles that bother you? Do you see some loss of skin volume? You might benefit from a filler that fills in the problem. These fillers are modern and safe and injected by trained professionals. A variety of soft tissue fillers can address a wide range of cosmetic concerns from fine lines, wrinkles, and deep folds to scar repair, thin lips, and hollow cheeks. Soft Tissue Fillers work by filling in the skin under wrinkles or scars to add volume and smooth the area. A number of different substances can be used to achieve these effects. Some of our most popular treatments are: Restylane™; Juvederm™; Radiesse™.
Restylane,™ Juvederm,™ Restylane Lyft, Volbella are hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that help replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin.

Radiesse™ is a deeper dermal filler made of calcium-based microspheres that restore facial volume as well as correct smile lines, nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Radiesse™ lasts longer than hyaluronic based fillers.

Encounter a healthier, more youthful appearance. Advanced Chemical Peels utilize an acid peel approach to improve skin tone and texture by removing the damaged outer layers of the skin. These procedures stimulate a burst of energy within your skin to bring healthy new living cells to the surface. Fine lines, poor skin tone, wrinkles, and acne scars are reduced and oily or acne-prone skin is improved. Healing time varies according to strength and most people can return to work or other daily activities immediately. Let us choose which peel best suits your skin needs. A series of peels may be recommended for best results.
Dermaplaning is a gentle manual exfoliation technique removing surface debris with custom dermaplaning blades and creating healthier, more radiant appearance. It gently removes the “peach fuzz” or vellus hair that gather on the cheeks. After this treatment, the texture is improved and topical products are absorbed more efficaciously. Adding a micropeel post dermaplaning achieves the best results for deeper lines and photo-aging skin issues.
If you struggle with unwanted rosacea redness, small blood vessels or dark age spots on the face, neck, décolletage or hands, this treatment is ideal. This technique uses high-intensity light pulses. After several treatments, your complexion will be rejuvenated. For even more effectiveness, add Fotofacial RF and radiofrequency energy to the high-intensity light to treat capillaries, age spots, tighten pores and improve skin texture.

Non-invasive radiofrequency technology delivering concentrated thermal energy to tighten loose skin, improve the appearance of cellulite, to renew, revitalize, and refresh your body and face. Multiple treatments required to achieve desirable results.
First, pulses of light even out your skin color and reduce tiny broken blood vessels and other color irregularities. Then, near-infrared energy and controlled deep heating help firm up any loose skin so you regain a more youthful, contoured appearance. Our laser, the Pixel®, then precisely creates thousands of microscopic perforations for texture and tone, which stimulate new collagen to grow. The new collagen improves your skin’s texture and tone to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The skin around each of these perforations remains intact, allowing the skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly. Have your skin assessed by our doctors to see if you are a candidate.
The Skin Care Center was the first in the Chicagoland area to obtain one of the most advanced lasers today for our patients. After a few days of healing this laser works on wrinkles, acne scars, and discoloration as well as large pores. Special, advanced training and experience with these skin types allow us to get you the best results. Rejuvenate your face, neck and décolleté. As an added bonus you will experience the continual building of collagen for months after the procedure.

Laser Hair Reduction
We use the latest technology in laser energy to stunt your hair follicles; which reduce or can even eliminate further hair growth on the upper lip, chin, underarms, back, chest, abdominals, arms, bikini, and legs. It is a simple no downtime procedure, and the patient can return to normal activities immediately. Results are best with multiple treatments. We offer these treatments individually or the patient may purchase a package of treatments.
Flashes of light disable the targeted hair follicle causing the unwanted hair to fall out and to prevent future growth. Several treatment sessions are needed since hair growth cycles are not synchronized and to treat dormant follicles. Within a few treatments, it leaves beautifully bare skin.
IN-Motion technology is used for advanced laser hair reduction treatments. It is a rolling technique that eliminates the common problem of missed or skipped spots. The In-Motion technology combines concurrent cooling with a gradual thermal rise to the desired temperature. The treatment targets the pigments and melanin located in hair follicles.
