Total Skin Solution in Chicago

Prepare yourself for the ultimate medical skin rejuvenation, Total Skin Solution, which combines a contemporary rejuvenation process with two best-in-class devices that treat the entire depth of skin, from deep layers of the dermis to superficial layers of the epidermis. In other words, Total Skin Solution treats the entirety of the skin layer, not just the surface.

Total Skin Solution requires a three-step process, using three different modalities all done in a single visit.

  • Step one involves using a radio frequency energy device, either the Lutronic Genius, the Lutronic Infini, or the Fractora. Which device is used will be determined by the medical provider based on each patient’s dermal indications, which makes this a truly specialized and individualized treatment process. The radio frequency modality stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for sustained improvement in wrinkles, looseness of skin, acne scars and subcutaneous laxity of the face/neck/body skin. We are also actively monitoring the lasting effects on cellulite.

  • The second modality is LaseMD, which is a non-ablative fractionated laser that gently resurfaces the skin and achieves a marked improvement in abnormal skin discoloration, pigmentation, and sun damage.

  • The third step is bathing the skin surface with your own, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Your PRP is rich with growth factors, which accelerate and augment the healing process and enhance the final outcome. The transient thin passages created by the micro-needles of the radio frequency devices remain open to the bottom layers of the dermis for only a brief while after treatment, and treating these passages with the growth factors found in the PRP enhances the rejuvenating effects of the previous two steps. While the PRP step is optional, we highly recommend including it for achieving optimal results.

While all three of these treatments can be performed separately, combining them truly marks a new era in non-surgical skin rejuvenation. These types of technologies weren’t available half a decade ago. Now we can successfully rebuild fresh new collagen and elastin and promote glowing, healthy and young-looking skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can benefit from the Total Skin Solution?

Anyone who suffers from or notices these indications:

  • Wrinkles

  • Loose skin and skin laxity of the face, body and/or hands

  • Acne scars and active acne

  • Rosacea

  • Cellulite dimples (research and study is ongoing on the effect of Total Skin Solution on cellulite)

On which body parts can Total Skin Solution be performed?

The three-step treatment can be performed pretty much anywhere on the body, but the most common parts are the face, neck, décolletage, and hands.

How is Total Skin Solution performed?

After thoroughly cleansing and toning your face, neck, décolletage and/or hands a topical anesthetic is applied. After 30-to-60 minutes the anesthetic cream is thoroughly cleansed and the Lutronic Genius or the Infini radiofrequency microneedling is performed on the desired skin areas. The second modality, LaseMD fractional laser resurfacing, follows. Then the third step, application of the PRP on the skin, is completed. The patient then relaxes in the treatment chair to let the PRP solution air dry.

Is there any downtime associated with Total Skin Solution?

The downtime is minimal, if any at all. Your face may be slightly red for up to a couple days following treatment.

How long after treatment is it okay to put on makeup?

Usually, lipstick and eye makeup can be applied the next day. Mild mineral powder treatment used as a gentle foundation can be applied on the third day following treatment. A heavier makeup shouldn’t be applied until approximately five days following treatment, sometimes longer since healing times vary from patient to patient. Using common sense discretion and checking with your medical provider are highly recommended if you’re unsure about applying makeup since it can lead to infection.

Is the procedure painful?

Prior to the start of the treatment we recommend taking the bottle recommended dosage of ibuprofen or Tylenol tablets. Pain sensitivity is individually variable. To provide you with the ultimate experience we always use lidocaine numbing cream, and in some cases Pronox ™, which is a laughing gas mixture of nitric oxide and oxygen used to combat anxiety and provide pain relief.

How many sessions or Total Skin Solution are required for optimal results?

Most patients experience marked results after a single treatment. However, for optimal results, we recommend more than one, perhaps two or three sessions, spaced evenly about a month or apart. Annual maintenance sessions also help maintain optimal results.

What do I do immediately after the Total Skin Solution treatment?

In short, relax. Avoid touching or scratching your face. Definitely avoid the sun, extreme heat and/or extreme cold for several days after treatment. The best way to do this stay indoors as much as possible during the week following treatment. After you’re healed, we recommend using a daily facial sunscreen to protect you and avoid further aging. Find out more about our facial sunscreen, Solaris Day, which doubles as a daily facial moisturizer by clicking this link.

What skincare regimen should be followed after treatment?

For the first several days after treatment, it’s best to let your skin heal itself. Then, after completely healed, you may start a regular skincare regime. Always cleanse your skin twice daily. We recommend one of our daily cleansers, like VitaCleanse or GenX Toner. We also strongly urge all our patients to protect their face from the sun with our facial sunscreen (product also doubles as a daily moisturizer), Solaris Day. Many patients will supplement this with a dedicated moisturizer, such as our Dermabella. In the evening, we recommend using a Vitamin C serum, such as C-Zone and a retinol, such as our Radiant Lift. For the hands, we have a dedicated hand moisturizer, Silk Hands, and lightening cream, Pigment Cream. For the decolletage, we have a dedicated moisturizer, Neck and Decolletage Cream.

What is the cost of the Total Skin Solution treatment?

For patients who elect only the first two steps, the treatment starts at $1100. The third step, the PRP harvesting, and application are an additional $750. Periodically, we do run specials on these and all treatments. And we do offer financing via CareCredit and Alphaeon Credit.
