It’s Hyperhidrosis Awareness Month
The medical condition hyperhidrosis is when the body sweats four or five times more than normal. When sweating is this extreme it can be embarrassing, uncomfortable, and anxiety-inducing. It can disrupt all aspects of a person’s life. Luckily, we have many treatment options available to our patients! Prescription strength topical antiperspirants and oral medications. miraDry is a non-invasive procedure that permanently reduces underarm sweat and odor. Even better news, book a complimentary miraDry consultation in November and be automatically entered to win one free treatment! Botox for hyperhidrosis is an option for underarms, palms of hands and hairline. The sweat-blocking response time is usually 2 to 4 days after treatment and lasts for 9 months. Call or text our office at 312-245-9965, or book online to schedule a consultation and find relief for your hyperhidrosis.
Welcome our newest treatment, EmFace!
We are thrilled to welcome our newest treatment, EmFace! Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology is one of the first offices in the country to offer EmFace to our patients. Our providers have been using injectable fillers for years to help volumize the face, however there was no solution for muscle loss. There aren’t many solutions to also simultaneously restore loss of collagen and elastic tissue in the skin. But now there is, thanks to the EmFace! What is EmFace? EmFace is the first and ONLY needle-free procedure that simultaneously treats facial skin and muscles in just 4 sessions. Starting at the age of 20, we loose collagen about 1% per year until age 30. After the age of 30, some of the underlying structures have loosened, resulting in sagging skin. Patients who can benefit most from EmFace are of the ages 30 and up, however, everybody can benefit from less wrinkles and more lift! Clinical Studies showed that the simultaneous energies of EmFace reduces the effects of the facial aging process. 37% Wrinkle Reduction 23% Lifting Effect 30% Increase in Muscle Tone How does EmFace work? EmFace is the first device on the market utilizing the simultaneous application of both the Synchronized RF and HIFES. Synchronized REF smooths skin by heating the dermis and increasing the levels of collagen and elastin fibers. While the HIFES technology restores & elevates support of facial tissues by selectively contracting muscles and increasing density & quality of muscle structure. Treatment will consist of 4 – 20 minute sessions performed once a week, where you can relax while you let the device gently stimulate the facial muscles and thicken the skin. The results achieve what younger faces have – which is better / thicker muscles and thicker skin. EmFace can help your skin in 3 ways Replenishing collagen Thickening and tightening the muscle for better lift Improving the overall appearance of your skin Call to schedule an EmFace consultation today! EmFace can be used with fillers, neuromodulators, skincare and more to give you a more youthful, fresh appearance.

What’s up with the recent headlines these days about celebrities not showering?
What's up with the recent headlines these days about celebrities not showering? Sure, the pandemic has been hard on all of our daily beauty routines! But are there any hygiene risks with skipping the shower? We revisit a previous USA Today article with Dr. Carolyn Jacob back in 2017 explaining some of the repercussions of not showering for long periods of time! You’d develop an odor “Oily parts of your body would collect dirt & pollutants” -Dr. Jacob Higher risk of infection Your “hair becomes heavy with oil secreted from the scalp and the collected dirt and pollutants that stick to it” -Dr. Jacob “As bacteria builds on your skin, it risks inflaming hair follicles, causing pimples.” Dr. Jacob Your groin can develop “intertrigo, a yeast and inflammation combination that goes from itchy and red to burning and painful” -Dr. Jacob “Dead skin would build up between your toes and become crusty.” -Dr. Jacob How often should I shower? So what’s the deal? How often do we ACTUALLY have to shower? Although some of the above cases are after extended periods of time, it’s recommended to shower every other day. However, this might not be the case for people who exercise frequently or work physically active jobs. If you work outside in the heat, are a line cook or moving shipments all day for example, you would be more prone to sweat and require daily showers. But if you work an indoor desk job with minimal movement throughout the day, then showering every other day should be fine for you. For you regular shower takers out there, try some of these tips from our providers to help keep your skin healthy regardless of how often you’re sudsing up. Keep showers under 15 minutes Do not shower in extremely hot water Pick products that don’t have harsh fragrances or perfumes Pat dry after getting out the shower Moisturize immediately after drying to seal in moisture Be sure to consult your CCSD Board-Certified Dermatologist or Certified Physician Assistant on any skin issues you may have. Call our office at 312-245-9965 option 2, to schedule your appointment or book online. Check out the full USA TODAY article here.
