At Dupage Medical Plaza, we have the expertise you need to revitalize your features and look younger. If aging is something that you wish to treat, then we can help. Aging is impacted by five key factors: your age, sleep lines, gravity, expression lines, and photo aging. Photo aging is the most responsible for a majority of skin alterations such as fine lines, skin elasticity, enlarged pores, yellow coloration, and mottled pigmentation.

We have a variety of tools at our disposal to prevent and battle the signs of skin aging. Depending on the severity, we can use cosmeceuticals, microdermabrasion, botulinum toxin (Botox), dermal fillers, and many more treatments. We try to offer as many non surgical procedures as possible.

Other cosmetic dermatology treatments that we can offer include acne intervention. Thanks to advancements in the treatment of acne and the introduction of antimicrobials, there is almost never a need for surgery. Some treatments include acne surgery, which uses a comedo extractor. You could also receive a intralesional injection with consists of triamcinolone acetate. This is injected into acne abcess or cyst to reduce the inflammation and by so doing reduce the size. An aquaglycolic acid peel is used to induce peeling of the skin layers and primarily the acne.

We could also use Keyes cutaneous punch to remove and eliminate a scar. This can be done either by removing the scar itself or releasing the scar tissue that is the culprit behind the depression. A wire brush or diamond freeze will be used with a high powered engine to reduce the depth of scarring, this is called dermabrasion. Laserbrasion is next by using a laser to also reduce the depth of any superficial scarring. Finally, augmentation uses a filler to compensate for a depressed scar.
