The Center for Radiant Skin at the Office of Jeffrey S. Poulter, M.D., offers a number of skin care treatments to help our Illinois clients look and feel their best. These medical aesthetician services can be performed individually or in conjunction with plastic surgery or other medical spa procedures.
IPL is a light-based therapy that relies on photothermal energy to stimulate collagen synthesis and promote the skin’s natural healing process. Unlike with laser skin resurfacing, our Illinois IPL clients will not experience raw, peeling skin from this non-ablative treatment. It is a low-downtime procedure that can be used to correct multiple skin imperfections at once, such as:
After a series of IPL treatments, our patients notice brighter skin that looks more evenly toned and youthful. This gentle treatment requires no time away from school, work, or other activities. With ongoing maintenance sessions and proper skin care, results should be long-lasting.
Chemical peels and custom facials can help refine your skin texture and minimize the appearance of fine lines, skin discoloration, and enlarged pores. The Center for Radiant Skin offers a variety of different options to provide a truly personalized treatment. Determining the right peel or facial for you will be based on your skin type and personal goals.
At our practice in Illinois, many plastic surgery patients choose microdermabrasion to mechanically exfoliate the skin, making it softer and smoother. The Center for Radiant Skin offers a unique “crystal free” microdermabrasion system that uses a special diamond-encrusted applicator tip to gently buff away impurities. An integrated vacuum removes dead skin cells and debris and increases blood flow to the skin, resulting in improved texture and a refreshed appearance. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with a treatment masque for enhanced skin conditioning.
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and color. During this procedure, the Eclipse Micro-Pen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. MicroPen Elite also creates micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin.
In addition to the procedures listed above, the Center for Radiant Skin provides patients in Illinois with other skin care services to enhance their appearance. Some of the additional cosmetic treatments available are:
The Center is also excited about the addition of the SkinMedica® skin care product line by Allergan®.
