Q&A with Suzy
(With EGD since 2015)
She obtained her certificate of Esthetics from Midwest College of Cosmetology in 2006. She was a patient at Elk Grove Dermatology before she began working us. She joins us with 10 years of experience in Aesthetics, 4 of which were at American Laser Skincare.
Question: You previously worked at American Laser and now at Elk Grove Dermatology. Is a laser a laser, or is careful laser selection critical to success?
Answer: I have worked with many types of lasers over the last 5 years and I think the most important part of laser selection is wavelength and comfort. I believe patients get the best result using a laser that uses the 755 nm and 1064 nm wavelength, like our Candela Gentle Max Pro.
Question: What is permanent hair reduction, and what do I need to know about it?
: Permanent hair reduction is a way of removing unwanted hair from almost any area of the body with a laser. Patients will see a greater result than waxing, tweezing or threading (read more...)
Question: What type of skin tightening does EGD have and is it possible I won't need a face lift if I have it done?
Answer: EGD purchased the EndyMed 3DEEP radio frequency skin tightening device in December of 2014. We were the first Dermatologist in the Chicago area to have this new technology. We have treated patients of all age ranges, both male and female, who have been very pleased with their results.
The EndyMed can treat many areas of the body but some of the most popular areas are neck/jowl and cheeks. We evaluate each patient individually making sure that the treatment suits your areas of concern and that your expectations can be met.
This is a non invasive treatment with minimal discomfort, no side effects and minimal to no down time after treatments. It requires 6 to 12 treatments (depending on the area of the body) over a period of 6 to 12 weeks (read more...)
