What should I expect during my initial consultation?
Your first visit begins with a consultation with your board-certified dermatologist. Prior to care, we will get your health history and perform a clinical evaluation of the skin to determine which treatment options are the best fit. We will customize both a treatment plan and a skin care regimen if desired. Important pre- and post-treatment instructions will also be provided to accompany most treatments.
What insurances do you accept?
We accept a variety of major insurances for your skin care. We have example of insurances we accept on our website. If you don’t see your insurance listed, please contact us and we will verify if we accept. Any cosmetic procedures or products purchased in our office are out-of-pocket expenses that will not be covered by insurance; our staff will ensure that you are fully informed of all of these expenses prior to obtaining your consent for the procedure. To avoid the unpleasant surprise of an unexpected medical bill, please ask to speak to a member of our billing department before your visit if you have any questions or concerns about insurance coverage of your scheduled procedure.
What is the difference between a deductible, copay and coinsurance?
All three are medical charges you must pay out of your own pocket, even if you have insurance. Deductibles are a specific amount you must accumulate and pay each year of covered health services before benefits are provided by your carrier. Plans may also have separate individual and family deductibles and/or deductibles for separate services. Copayments are a set fee the member pays to providers at the time services are provided. Copays are applied to office visits, emergency room visits, hospital admissions, etc. Coinsurance is a form of cost sharing. After your deductible has been met, plan will begin paying a percentage of your bills. The remaining amount, known as co-insurance, is the portion due by the patient.
How does your patient portal work?

Who should receive a medical facial?
Medical facials are for anyone! At D+A Streeterville, our medical facials are customized to match your specific skin concerns and skin type. Most patients find our medical facials to be great for pampering, while others rely on them to correct skin issues. Whatever your reason, you can trust your needs to be met with D+A Streeterville’s medical facials.
But don’t just take our word, here is a testimonial from a patient:
“I admit I was not a firm believer of the effects a medical grade facial yielded until I experienced one for myself. I committed to one medical facial monthly for 3 consecutive months and I had never been so thrilled with how my skin appeared (and I have worked in a dermatology office or plastic surgeon office for the past 10 years). My skin was brighter, my texture was smooth, and my skin care products seemed to absorb more evenly which helped me to maintain my glow. I no longer perceive facials as just a pampering luxury. They are a crucial component to my skin regimen.” + NT, age 31

The exact number of laser resurfacing treatments varies by your specific situation. Patients being treated for acne scarring will most likely need more treatments to see desired results.
