Every patient we treat at our state-of-the-art Medical Spa has individual skin concerns which require a custom skincare regimen. With age, and through different stages of life, your skin transitions to different phases as well. It is crucial to have a relationship with an aesthetic medical professional with the expertise and experience to provide you with the procedures to help you pass the years with grace. This crucial factor in anti-aging medicine is why board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David Dreyfuss, performs all nonsurgical procedures at our surgical clinic in Orland Park.

As a plastic surgeon, he has the training and experience to provide treatments and products to enhance your skin’s health and appearance aestheticians don’t have. He not only has a full arsenal of treatment regimens to ensure your best skin ever, but he can also recommend home products to help enhance the appearance of your skin. Here are some of his recommendations for each stage of your life:

Your Thirties

Although skin care is important to teens and young adults as well, when you reach thirty, it’s time to get very serious about your skincare. Use a facial cleanser when you rise in the morning and before you go to bed at night. This practice will be gentle on your skin and will avoid pre-mature wrinkles, lines, and blemishes.

Also, wear sunscreen! Nothing adds to wrinkles and fine lines like sun and wind exposure, and wearing sunscreen daily with an SPF of 30 or higher will ensure you have the proper protection. Dr. Dreyfuss can recommend one with the proper blend of moisture and antioxidants. He can also recommend a topical cream or serum to use at night with the proper levels of AHA, retinol, and moisturizer.

A personalized facial every six to eight weeks is highly recommended to hydrate the skin and clean the pores. Microdermabrasion is also a great treatment for exfoliation to provide a polished and refined appearance.

If you start noticing some lines around your eyes or on your forehead, Dr. Dreyfuss may recommend Botox to get a jump start on your anti-aging regimen.

Your Forties

Now is the time to step up your skin care treatment to meet the ever-advancing onset of aging skin. Dr. Dreyfuss will suggest more advanced products and procedures which are appropriate for this time in your life. With proper skin evaluation and a stronger treatment regimen, you will find your skin maintaining its youthful glow or reverse the effects of aging.

Dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are optimal treatments to ensure your facial appearance has enough volume for a smooth texture with fewer wrinkles and lines. Botox can also be utilized for effective treatment of wrinkles and lines about the eyes and on the forehead.

Your Fifties

To maintain proper skin care and keep you looking wonderful, this decade in your life requires consistent and proper treatments. While maintaining a daily skin cleansing regimen and using daily sunscreen as mentioned earlier, you will probably also require products which trigger new cell growth and regeneration of elastin and collagen, the proteins which provide support and skin tightness. Dr. Dreyfuss will recommend products to ensure you receive the proper nutrients your skin requires; plus, he might also suggest treatments appropriate to keep your facial appearance young and vibrant.

Ultherapy is an advanced skincare treatment which is FDA-approved for the face, neck, chin, décolletage, and brow. This non-invasive ultra-sound procedure stimulates collagen production to offer a gradual skin tightening and resolve wrinkles, lines, and folds.

Laser Genesis is a laser treatment used for skin rejuvenation at this critical age. Skin issues like wrinkles, uneven texture, scars, redness, and large pores can all be resolved with Laser Genesis, giving you healthy and rejuvenated skin.

Your Sixties and Beyond

Now your skin will need more protection than at any other time in your life. Hydration and sunscreen are critical to ensuring optimal health and appearance. Gentle cleansers in the morning and at night should be maintained as well as sunscreen application daily.

Hyaluronic acid fillers will also keep your face full and plump while easing wrinkles and lines. Regular facials will ensure your skin will receive proper hydration and an infusion of necessary nutrients.

Facial surgery is also a possibility at any age to shave a decade off your appearance and ensure your graceful aging process.

Summer is almost here and with it comes warmer weather. This temperature rise means you’ll be exchanging your winter woolens for your crop tops, summer shorts, and bikinis. It may be wonderful to think you’ll be able to get some sun on your skin; but is your summer body ready to flaunt?

Here at Dreyfuss Plastic Surgery, we see an uptick in patients looking to get summer ready for the events on their calendar. Here are the most popular procedures they choose:

Liposuction

Liposuction is the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the Chicago area and around the United States. It is the least invasive plastic surgery available and has the shortest recovery period. Liposuction is designed to eliminate the stubborn fat that diet and exercise can’t seem to resolve and help you look your best this summer.

The procedure involves tiny incisions that enable a thin suction tool to remove stubborn fat cells from target areas. It is not a weight loss procedure but rather a body contouring treatment, and patients should be close to their optimal weight before considering the surgery.

CoolSculpting

What could be more satisfying than freezing away unwanted bulges to prepare for the warm weather that approaches? Coolsculpting uses advanced fat freezing technology to create a sculpted body outline designed to turn heads. The non-surgical, non-invasive procedure is a perfect alternative to liposuction for patients with less fat issues or who shy from surgery.

CoolSculpting is a comfortable way to eliminate fat pads. Many of our patients bring a book, watch Netflix or take a nap during treatment.

Breast Surgery

Breast surgeries like augmentation or a lift are designed to provide youthful, vivacious breasts which add confidence and body self-esteem. Breast augmentation brings balance, firmness and optimal size and shape to the bust line while a breast lift will elevate the breasts to a perky youthful position.

Brazilian Butt Lift

This procedure lifts your tush so you can feel sexy in the sleekest dresses and tightest jeans. Your summer wardrobe will not include loose-fitting clothing designed to hide what you have, but rather the most stylish outfits for summer wear.

The Brazilian butt lift will increase projection and improve your overall body profile making you look feminine and sexy.

Cellfina

Cellfina is an FDA approved cellulite treatment product with long-lasting, clinically proven results.  The traditional methods of radiofrequency, laser treatment, lotions and topical creams have had sporadic results at best.

This in-office cellulite treatment takes about a half hour and provides initial results within three days, gradually improving over two to three months.

Laser Hair Removal

Prepare for this summer with the need for little hair removal maintenance. The ProWave laser provides permanent hair removal results so you can reveal a soft, smooth skin every time you go to the beach or wear your favorite shorts.

Instead of shaving, tweezing, waxing or plucking, try this revolutionary treatment for effective but gentle hair removal for the chin, back, bikini line, legs or underarms. Patient results vary, and multiple treatments may be necessary for permanent results.

Skin Rejuvenation

Dreyfuss Plastic Surgery offers Laser Genesis, an innovative Yag laser treatment for non-ablative skin rejuvenation. This procedure resolves common skin issues like uneven texture, redness, large pores, scars, and wrinkles providing a healthy skin glow.

It delivers consistent high energy pulses to skin tissue, heating, and targeting multiple skin layers. You will enjoy the relative comfort of the procedure with best results after a series of five treatment sessions.

Laser Genesis is available for all skin types but ideal for light to medium skin tones.
