Dr. Steven Mandrea, Board Certified Dermatologist, is proud to offer liposuction using only local (tumescent) anesthesia.
Tumescent Liposuction for fat removal is one of the best liposuction methods and the safest. Almost any area of the body may be treated, the most common being abdomen, female hips and thighs, neck, and male waist (love handles). Tumescent liposuction utilizes large volumes of lightly salted water solution, containing a precise amounts of a dilute local anesthetic (lidocaine), and adrenaline, which is dispersed into the fatty tissue. The injected area then becomes locally numbed. This way, liposuction patients usually need no general anesthesia, in contrast with traditional liposuction.

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq is a device that removes unwanted body fat nonsurgically, noninvasively, by using low temperature in localized areas ("Cryolipolysis") It is safe and effective It is FDA approved. It is minimally painful, although it leaves some temporary numbness. It works by lowering the temperature of the fat cells and the overlying skin,but carefully avoiding frostbite (the cooling necessary to damage the fat cells is much less than that which causes frostbite) Since fat cells are more sensitive to cooling than skin cells, this procedure damages the fat cells but leaves the skin cells intact.
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
Leg and Facial Spider Veins
Lakeview Dermatology Board Certified Dermatologists have successfully treated numerous patients with leg spider veins and facial spider veins in our dermatology clinics in Chicago, Park Ridge, Orland Park, and Palos Heights. At Lakeview Dermatology, we treat Spider Veins only, using injections of sclerosing solutions, which have remained the gold standard of treatment for leg spider veins. Our dermatologists use Diolite which is very effective in the treatment of facial spider veins, dilated blood vessels (telangiectasias), cherry angiomas, freckles, lentigo, liver spots, and some other small brown growths. Milia (tiny white cysts) can also be treated by modifying the technique.
