Dermatology in Barrington, IL - Dr. David P. Van Dam
Van Dam Dermatology and Laser Center has served our area for over 30 years and is dedicated to providing you with the very best care for the health and appearance of your skin
How are we doing?
Dermatology is the field of medicine that deals with skin health and disease. Dermatologic surgery is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of medically necessary (as well as cosmetic) conditions of the skin, hair, nails, veins, and adjacent tissues with a variety of surgical, reconstructive, cosmetic and non-surgical methods.
In addtion to our focus on the health of your skin, we also offer many treatments aimed at enhancing your appearance. At Van Dam Dermatology and Laser Center, we can help you identify treatments best suited to improve problems you may have with wrinkles, age spots, loss of facial volume, lackluster skin and other conditions that come with age and environmental skin damage.
Liposonix® is a revolutionary non-surgical ultrasound procedure for people who are close to their ideal shape, but have stubborn areas of fat that just won't go away no matter how much they exercise or diet. The procedure takes about one hour and, while indiviual results can vary, patients typically achieve a waistline reduction of approximately one inch (equivalent to one pant or dress size) within 8 - 12 weeks after a single treatment.
Ultherapy® is a breakthrough technology that uses highly focused ultrasound to lift and tighten the skin. Van Dam Dermatology and Laser Center is one of the first practices in Illinois to perform Ultherapy. Our patients' responses have been outstanding, with over 95% achieving noticeable improvement that enhances the youthful appearance of the face and neck.
If you are unhappy about wrinkles; scars from acne, injury or surgery; or if you would like to erase unsightly spider veins on your face or legs, Van Dam Dermatology and Laser Center can help. We can also permanently reduce unwanted hair and eliminate irregular pigmentation and brown age spots from any part of the body. We use gold standard technologies for skin rejuvenation and scar treatment, including our Fraxel Re: Store 1927 and 1550 lasers, Palomar 1540 fractionated lasers as well as our Icon Intense Pulsed Light System are state-of-the-art technologies that consistently and safely help achieve your goals.
Botox® Cosmetic is the most popular anti-aging treatment worldwide, and Dr. Van Dam is one of the leading providers of Botox® Cosmetic in the Chicago area. Dr. Van Dam's experience and expertise includes the use of many other fillers, including Juvéderm® XC, Juvéderm Voluma™, Restylane and Belotero Balance®. Sculptra® is an injectable product that stimulates production of your own, long-lasting collagen to restore volume to large or small areas of the face. In addition, Dr. Van Dam restores facial volume with fat transfer, a procedure that uses your own fat to replace lost volume in your face. The fat in your body also contains stem cells that are capable of developing into mature fat cells. These stem cells are concentrated by centrifuge after harvesting your fat transfer procedure. A natural rejuvenation procedure that should last many years.
Tumescent liposuction - using only local anesthetic and no stitches - is the safest and most effective way to painlessly remove unwanted fat. Dr. Van Dam has performed over a thousand of these body sculpting procedures and offers a complimentary consultation to help you learn whether tumescent liposuction is right for you. Patients experience a painless procedure with post-operative downtime of only 2 to 3 days.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States, affecting 40 to 50 million Americans. Our practice offers the most up-to-date treatment options for acne, including prescription topical and oral medications as well as in-office treatments. Acleara is an exciting new optimized pulsed light therapy that can show results in as little as 2 days after the first acne treatment.
