Sun spots, redness, broken capillaries or texture problems don't have to make you feel self-conscious about the condition of your skin. LimeLight Facials offer a simple way to enhance your appearance. The dermatologists at Deerfield Dermatology Associates in Deerfield, IL, provide a variety of skin care services that will help you look your best, including LimeLight Facials.

Are LimeLight Facials a Good Choice for Me?

LimeLight Facials treat the signs of aging and damage from ultraviolet light exposure. The treatment is frequently used to treat:

  • Brown sun spots
  • Pigment irregularities
  • Freckles
  • Rosacea
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rough patches of skin
  • Redness
  • Broken capillaries
  • Change in skin texture

The treatment doesn't just rejuvenate your face but can also be used on your legs, arms, hands, chest and neck.

How do LimeLight treatments improve the condition of skin?

LimeLight Facials use intense pulsed light (IPL) laser light to target small veins and eliminated red or dark spots and small veins. Heat from the laser destroys broken capillaries or breaks up the pigments that give brown or red spots their color. Light pulses also increase collagen production, which improves skin texture, reduces the size of pores and makes wrinkles less noticeable.

Is LimeLight treatment painful?

LimeLight treatments reach the dermis, one of the deeper layers of your skin, yet don't damage the surface. You won't need any anesthesia and will probably only notice a slight pinching or stinging sensation when the light pulses are aimed at your skin. Most people need one to three sessions for optimal results. Each treatment lasts about 60 minutes.

Is there any downtime after the treatments?

You can return to your usual activities immediately after LimeLight treatment. Your skin may look a little red when you leave your Deerfield dermatologist's office. You may also notice that brown spots look darker than usual. Although the redness won't last long, your spots will continue to grow darker before flaking off at about 10 days. You'll also notice a decrease in redness and an improvement in texture at the same time. Wearing sunscreen daily can help you avoid sun damage in the future.

Are you ready to improve your skin with LimeLight Facials? Call the dermatologists at Deerfield Dermatology Associates in Deerfield, IL, at (847) 480-0004 to schedule an appointment.

What is Eczema?

Eczema is a skin condition characterized by itchiness, inflammation, and a rash. Other symptoms of eczema include scaliness, blistering, redness, and dry, leathery patches. Eczema tends to be chronic and often runs in families. It is not contagious, but the exact causes are unclear. Certain factors seem to trigger eczema flare-ups, such as allergens, irritants, or even weather. There are several different types of eczema, including:

  • Atopic dermatitis — Most common type of eczema, runs in families, and is believed to be caused by abnormal immune system functioning
  • Contact dermatitis — Triggered by allergens or irritants, such as harsh chemicals
  • Dyshidrotic dermatitis — More common in warm climates or during summer months
  • Nummular dermatitis — Tends to be chronic and most often affects the back, buttocks, arms, and lower legs
  • Seborrheic dermatitis — Dandruff and infant cradle cap are both forms of this type of eczema, which is often triggered by oily skin, stress, or weather
  • Stasis dermatitis — Develops on the lower legs of elderly and middle-aged people and seems to be caused by circulation problems

Eczema Treatments

Mild eczema flare-ups are often successfully treated with over-the-counter antihistamines or itch relief creams. For severe or persistent eczema flare-ups, treatment by a dermatologist is best. A dermatologist can prescribe a prescription strength antibiotic, anti-fungal cream, corticosteroid, or steroid cream. Your Deerfield dermatologist can determine the best method for treating your eczema.

Tags: Adult Acne  

Acne affects many adults and is one of the most common skin conditions among American adults. You do not have to continue strugglingacne with adult acne. Many treatment options are available and a dermatologist can recommend an effective treatment for your specific type of acne. The physicians at Deerfield Dermatology Associates are your dermatologists for adult acne treatment in Deerfield, IL.

Causes of Acne

Acne is caused by blocked pores. Oil glands in the skin produce sebum, which moisturizes and protects the skin to keep it healthy. However, sebum can also become trapped inside pores and clog them. In healthy skin, sebum is released by the oil glands and carries away dead skin cells and debris as it moves along the hair follicles. The dead skin cells and debris are pushed out through the pores, which helps the skin stay clear. When this process is interrupted, sebum, dead skin cells, and debris gets trapped inside the pores, clogs them, and causes acne.

Acne Treatments

Many adult acne treatments are available in Deerfield. Some treatments work by clearing existing acne, while others prevent acne from returning either by reducing sebum production or eliminating acne-causing bacteria. Mild acne can often be treated with a gently cleansing regimen. Moderate acne is best treated with topical prescription or over-the-counter products. Severe acne might require a combination of topical treatments and oral medications.

Your dermatologist can recommend an effective method for treating your specific type of acne. Adult acne treatments include:

  • Washing the skin with a gentle lanolin-free soap daily to eliminate excess sebum
  • Applying topical over-the-counter products, such as resorcinol, salicylic acid, or benzoyl peroxide, to clear existing acne
  • Applying topical antibiotic prescription products, such as Tetracycline Erythromycin, or Clindamycin
  • Taking oral antibiotic medications
  • Professional extraction of whiteheads and blackheads by a dermatologist

For treatment of adult acne in Deerfield, IL, schedule an appointment with one of the dermatologists at Deerfield Dermatology Associates by calling (847) 480-0004.

Tags: Dermal Fillers  

As skin ages, it gradually loses the firmness and elasticity that gives it that firm, youthful appearance. When collagen production begins to fillersdecline, the signs of aging start to become more pronounced, typically in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, dryness, and sagging and hollowing around the cheeks, eyes, mouth, and neck. Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive treatment design to counteract volume loss and elasticity and restore firmness for a smoother, more youthful looking complexion. Deerfield Dermatology Associates offers several types of dermal fillers and cosmetic services for aging, and other skincare and dermatology services for a range of skin conditions and problems.

Dermal Facial Fillers in Deerfield, IL

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, dermal fillers are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that can help to plump and add volume to areas of the face that have started to hollow or sag as part of the aging process. They can also help to improve the appearance of scars in some cases. There are a few types of dermal fillers available at Deerfield Dermatology Associates:

  • Restylane
  • Juvederm
  • Radiesse
  • Perlane

What Can Dermal Fillers Do?

Although fine lines and wrinkles are among the first and most common signs of aging and skin damage due to factors like environment, sun damage, smoking, poor diet, and genetics, the loss of subcutaneous fat and lower collagen levels are the triggers at work under the surface of your skin. Dermal fillers are used to address a number of common cosmetic issues associated with the aging process, such as:

  • Thin lips
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Deep facial creases and wrinkles
  • Add/improve facial contours
  • Complement facial plastic surgery procedures

If you are looking for a non-surgical and minimally invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery, dermal fillers may be a good option for you.
