Non-surgical options for better skin
Not all cosmetic procedures are invasive. Some problems are solved with simple topical skin treatments. Chicago cosmetic dermatology has made many recent advancements in this field. We offer the newest and best skin treatments available.
Chemical Peels – an aesthetic technique used to peel the top layer or layers of the skin. The peel reveals new, rejuvenated skin underneath. There are different kinds of peels available. Chemical peels give smoother skin with fewer wrinkles.
Jessner Peel – a peeling agent made from resorcinol, lactic acid, and salicylic acid. The Jessner peel is a lighter peel. It won’t penetrate deeply into the skin. It addresses surface coloration and acne. There are other peels designed to effect deeper layers of the skin.
Oxygenating Facial – simulates the natural oxygenation and circulation of the skin. Treatment draws oxygen to the skin’s surface. This helps to promote healing and rejuvenates skin that has depletes over time.
Laser Skin Resurfacing – use the power of pulsating light to smooth and correct coloring on the skin. There is more information available below this box on our skin resurfacing procedures.
Intense Pulsed Light Photo Rejuvenation – corrects the skin coloration and texture. Skin degrades due to factors like the sun and toxins. There is more information below in the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) section.
Custom Medical Facials – A medical facial is like a regular facial that you can get at a standard spa. Medi facials take advantage of medical grade topical products. Medical grade products have a greater effect penetrating skin, improving moisture and smoothness. A media facial can only be done by a certified medical aesthetician. Our aesthetic staff is the best in Chicago.
Cosmetic Skin Treatments
Minimally invasive skin care treatments
Chicago Cosmetic Institute treats a full range of skin issues with non-surgical treatments. From dermal injections to topical skin care products that provide a deep clean. Our treatments will give you the skin you want in a fraction of the time it takes with more invasive treatments.
Botox – the most popular dermal filler of all time. Botox relaxes the muscles under the skin to loosen wrinkles and smooth the surface.
Juvederm – relaxes the muscles under the skin and helps with wrinkle relief. Juvederm provides 9 months to a year of wrinkle free skin. Meant for moderate to severe facial wrinkles. More powerful than Botox.
Medical Skin Care Products – stronger than the conventional products that you might see at a spa. Our peels and other facial products can be 40% stronger than the ones you would be able to find in a spa. Deeper treatments show much faster results. Wrinkle relief as well as moisture and collagen enhancement available.
PCA Skin – medical grade facial products addressing challenging skin concerns. PCA products are only offered through PCA certified professionals like CCI. Aging, acne, discoloration, sensitive skin, and rosacea are all treated by this product.
