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.

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

There are many effective treatments for adult acne. Your dermatologist can prescribe the right treatment for you to help clear your skin and prevent acne from returning. 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.

Tags: Warts  

While most skin warts are not necessarily dangerous, they can be unsightly, as well as uncomfortable depending on their location. Warts wartsare caused by a virus known as the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Warts can be contagious so it is important to seek treatment to prevent them from spreading to other areas of the body. The doctors at Deerfield Dermatology Associates are your experienced Deerfield, IL dermatologists for the treatment of all types of warts.

Types of Warts

There are different types of warts, including common warts, plantar or foot warts, and flat warts. Common warts tend to appear on the fingers or back of the hand. Plantar warts grow on the bottom of the feet and are likely to develop after walking around barefoot on unclean, damp surfaces, such as those in locker rooms and around public pools. Flat warts crop up on any area of the body and tend to be both smaller and smoother than common warts or foot warts. Flat warts also tend to crop up in clusters rather than as an isolated wart.

Treatments for Warts

Some types of warts can go away on their own, particularly in children. In other cases, treatment is necessary to eliminate the wart and prevent it from returning. Your Deerfield dermatologist can examine your warts and recommend the most effective treatment option. Possible treatments for warts include:

  • Over-the-counter ointments or medications
  • Prescription ointments
  • Prescription medication
  • Cryotherapy (freezing the wart off)
  • Electrosurgery (burning the wart off)
  • Laser cautery

In addition to the above treatments for warts, there are proactive measures you can take to prevent the warts from spreading. Since warts are contagious, it is important to avoid touching them. Otherwise, additional warts could crop up in other areas of the body. If you have plantar warts on the feet, avoid walking around barefoot on damp surfaces. Keep the feet clean and dry to prevent additional warts from developing.

If you struggle with warts anywhere on the face or body, there are treatments that can help. To schedule an appointment to discuss wart removal and treatment with a Deerfield, IL dermatologist, call Deerfield Dermatology Associates at (847) 480-0004.
