Introduction to Cosmetic Services
We are each different in many ways. The ways our bodies appear physically and function internally comprise our unique makeup. When extrinsic factors and lifestyle patterns (stress, sun exposure, radiation, food quality, etc.) are added to the mix, the health and appearance of our skin are impacted in a big way.
Cosmetic medicine utilizes sophisticated treatments, advanced lasers, and physician-grade skincare to address the issues that affect our skin. At Schaumburg Dermatology, our focus is to help you feel good in your skin, regardless of age.
Look below to find your particular concern and specific treatment options available.
Uneven Skin Tone, Pigmentation, Redness, Broken Blood Vessels
Uneven skin tone and pigmentation are often a result of environmental factors, most commonly the sun. Sun damage appears on the skin as redness, broken blood vessels, and brown spots. Over time the skin becomes dull and can make you appear older than your natural age.
Aging, Loss of Volume, Facial Folds, Crepey and Sagging Skin, Fine Lines, and Wrinkles
Aging and excessive or prolonged sun exposure break down collagen and elastin, which support the skin’s foundation, leading to loss of volume, facial folds, crepey and sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Superficial Skin Irregularities, Rough Texture,
Superficial skin irregularities, rough texture, and enlarged or clogged pores are common skin complaints. Some factors contributing to these common issues are medical/hormonal conditions, lifestyle, aging, and lack of a proper at-home skincare regimen.
Dealing with excessive hair in unwanted areas is time-consuming, costly, and frustrating. Plucking, tweezing, shaving, and waxing can lead to nicks, bumps, ingrown hair, and scars. At Schaumburg Dermatology, our advanced laser system is safe to use on all skin types to safely remove unwanted hair without damaging the surrounding skin.
Unsightly, leg veins are quite common and can cause unnecessary embarrassment for men and women. The latest advancements in cosmetic medicine now offer easy solutions for reducing the severity of leg veins. Hence, you no longer need to worry about covering up or coming up with creative reasons why you cannot participate in fun activities with family and friends.
Fat Pockets, Body Contouring
Reduce unwanted fat pockets and contour the body with no downtime. This procedure is great for stubborn areas, including the abdomen, love handles, saddlebags, and bra roll. We use the Exilis Elite system to safely deliver focused thermal energy into the skin to promote collagen remodeling for smoother, contoured skin.
Scars (Acne, Surgical and other)
During the course of our lives, we will inevitably experience scarring, whether it be from acne, acute trauma, or surgery. Depending on the location and severity of the scar, the emotional result for the individual can be devastating. At Schaumburg Dermatology, we have a number of options for treating scars. If the scar is raised, an appointment with one of our medical providers will be required before seeking cosmetic treatment.
