Excess Hair Treatment
The Apogee Alexandrite 5500 is one of the most reliable lasers to combat unwanted dark hairs and dark spots on the skin, such as freckles, sunspots, melasma or age spots. The Alex laser works by emitting powerful laser energy into the targeted tissue ( pigmented lesion or hair follicle) that causes subsequent lightening to the lesions and destruction of the follicle without damaging the neighboring tissue. The Alex laser works best in lighter skin patients, but is safe in darker skin types as well. Pigmented lesions may also require multiple treatments depending on how dark they are. The lesions will appear lighter after each treatment and may appear smaller in size.read more
Eyes by Thermage
Eyes by Thermage has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles of the upper and lower lids. Eyes by Thermage reduces hooding of the upper lids and produces a tighter, smoother look of the upper and lower lids. It can improve the dark under eye circles. The same monopolar radio frequency current is used as in the treatment of the cheeks and jowls to heat the collagen. A plastic shield protects the eye. Sometimes the improvement is immediately noticeable but often it takes up to 6 months to see the optimum benefit. With the new protocol, 95% of patients are pleased with the results. To discuss your Thermage® treatment in Chicago with a Board Certified Dermatologist please make an appointment today.read more
