Professional Care for Your Personal Results

CO2RE fractional laser resurfacing treats multiple skin layers simultaneously – helping us maximize the effectiveness of treatment. This procedure removes layers of skin tissue to help with a variety of skin issues, while enhancing skin tone and texture.

The CO2RE laser is commonly used to treat the face, neck and chest. Specifically, it can help with:

· Fine lines and wrinkles
· Acne and facial scars
· Age spots and pigment issues
· Eye rejuvenation (for bags + eye lines)

DiamondGlow™ Microdermabrasion

The DiamondGlow treatment combines microdermabrasion and dermal infusion, resulting in one comprehensive facial treatment. This treatment rejuvenates skin and repairs damage or blemishes by exfoliating, extracting and infusing. In a brief, 30-minute process, you can experience more radiant skin immediately.

Benefits of DiamondGlow include:

· Customizable based on your needs

· Painless procedure with no downtime

· Immediate plumper, more radiant skin

· Suitable for all skin types

Extended Patch Testing

If you have a rash or inflammation, patch testing is a great way to identify what allergen or substance is causing the issue. The process is simple and painless, with no needle or injection required. A common cause of rash and irritation is allergic contact dermatitis. This can be caused by a variety of substances and result in scaly, itchy rash, hives or blisters. A patch test can be helpful for identifying the cause, so we can treat effectively and you can avoid exposure to the substance in the future.

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.

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.

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.

D+A Streeterville stands apart from other dermatology practices due to the vast variety of medical and cosmetic treatments and services offered by our providers. At D+A Streeterville, patients are offered treatments such as medical facials, DiamondGlow™, Botox, IPL, laser resurfacing and more! 

CoolSculpting® treatment can be done in as little as 35 minutes and afterwards, you can return to your normal daily activities. However, before your appointment, here are some things to remember:  

  • Wear loose fitting clothes to improve your comfortability and allow for easy access to the treatment area. 
  • Eat a light meal and hydrate before your appointment. Try to avoid caffeine as bathroom breaks may be limited during treatment. 
  • Avoid using blood thinners before your treatment as these can increase the bruising experienced after your CoolSculpting® treatment. Tell your provider about all medications you are currently taking, including those that are over the counter. 
  • Bring something to do and keep yourself entertained during your treatment. This can include watching Netflix, reading a book or magazine, or playing on your phone. 
  • Avoid excess sun exposure and protect your treated skin from injuries that could make the area uncomfortable. 

The Vbeam Perfecta® laser is a type of pulse dye laser (PDL) used to treat blood vessels within the skin. The Vbeam Perfecta® stands out among other PDLs due to its advanced technology, ease of use and low incidence of side effects. This laser can treat a wide array of vascular, pigmented and non-pigmented legions on the skin. Conditions treated by the Vbeam Perfecta® include spider veins, port wine stains, acne scars, rosacea, and even wrinkles.  

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. Whereas patients receiving laser resurfacing for fine lines and wrinkles may need fewer treatments. Always consult your doctor to find out what works best for your situation.
