Skin Care

While professional medical spa treatments are powerful allies to have at your back in the fight against aging, the skin care regimen you follow at home on a daily basis is at least equally important for keeping skin looking young and healthy. Incorporating medical-grade skin care products into your normal skincare routine can dramatically improve overall skin tone and texture and promote a more vibrant complexion.

Dr. Otto Placik is a board certified plastic surgeon who offers Chicago men and women a superior selection of medical-grade skin care products to help protect and repair the skin and restore a more youthful appearance. For more serious complexion concerns, Dr. Placik also performs a variety of resurfacing treatments, including chemical peels.

Please contact us online or call our Chicago or Arlington Heights plastic surgery offices for more information on our skin care products, including prices.

About Skin Care

Skin aging is a natural and inevitable reality that everyone faces. In addition to the degenerative age-related processes that change the appearance of the skin, other factors, such as sun damage, pollution and lifestyle choices, can take a toll as well. With age, naturally decreasing levels of collagen and elastin in the skin can rob the complexion of youthful firmness and radiance.

Years of UV exposure can result in sun spots, while the effects of gravity can compromise the integrity of facial muscles and lead to sagging and wrinkles. Poor nutrition or smoking can contribute to a breakdown of healthy, supportive skin tissues and lead to a prematurely aged appearance. However, harnessing the power of medical-grade, cutting-edge skin care products can significantly help repair damage that has already occurred and better protect the skin into the future.

Dr. Placik is proud to offer his patients a wide array of innovative, clinically-proven products that deliver powerful results. Highly-effective, anti-aging products focus on a three-step philosophy for optimal at-home skin care: prevent, protect and correct. As a result, the skin is better protected from the visible signs of photoaging. For damage that has already occurred in the skin, advanced ingredients work to correct wrinkles, discolorations, acne and more. Patients who are concerned with hyper-pigmentation, fine lines or redness can benefit from the advanced healing formulas.

Skin Care FAQs

Am I a good candidate?

Anyone is a good candidate for the customized and scientifically developed solutions that medical-grade skin care products have to offer. The beauty of these products is that, with the help of Dr. Placik, you can create a customized skin care regimen that will optimally benefit your skin and address your unique complexion concerns.

Why are medical-grade skincare products better than drug store or department store products?

Skin care manufacturers spend a lot of money on packaging and marketing to convince customers their products are the best available. However, the true value of any product line lies in the quality of its ingredients and its measurable effects.
