What should I expect during my initial consultation?

What is the difference between a deductible, copay and coinsurance?

All three are medical charges you must pay out of your own pocket, even if you have insurance. Deductibles are a specific amount you must accumulate and pay each year of covered health services before benefits are provided by your carrier. Plans may also have separate individual and family deductibles and/or deductibles for separate services. Copayments are a set fee the member pays to providers at the time services are provided. Copays are applied to office visits, emergency room visits, hospital admissions, etc. Coinsurance is a form of cost sharing. After your deductible has been met, plan will begin paying a percentage of your bills. The remaining amount, known as co-insurance, is the portion due by the patient.

How should I prepare for my CoolSculpting® appointment?

CoolSculpting® treatment can be done in as little as 35 minutes and afterwards, you can return to your normal daily activities. However, before your appointment, here are some things to remember:  

  • Wear loose fitting clothes to improve your comfortability and allow for easy access to the treatment area. 
  • Eat a light meal and hydrate before your appointment. Try to avoid caffeine as bathroom breaks may be limited during treatment. 
  • Avoid using blood thinners before your treatment as these can increase the bruising experienced after your CoolSculpting® treatment. Tell your provider about all medications you are currently taking, including those that are over the counter. 
  • Bring something to do and keep yourself entertained during your treatment. This can include watching Netflix, reading a book or magazine, or playing on your phone. 
  • Avoid excess sun exposure and protect your treated skin from injuries that could make the area uncomfortable. 

What is the Vbeam Perfecta® laser?

The Vbeam Perfecta® laser is a type of pulse dye laser (PDL) used to treat blood vessels within the skin. The Vbeam Perfecta® stands out among other PDLs due to its advanced technology, ease of use and low incidence of side effects. This laser can treat a wide array of vascular, pigmented and non-pigmented legions on the skin. Conditions treated by the Vbeam Perfecta® include spider veins, port wine stains, acne scars, rosacea, and even wrinkles.  

Who should receive a medical facial?

Medical facials are for anyone! At D+A Streeterville, our medical facials are customized to match your specific skin concerns and skin type. Most patients find our medical facials to be great for pampering, while others rely on them to correct skin issues. Whatever your reason, you can trust your needs to be met with D+A Streeterville’s medical facials.  

But don’t just take our word, here is a testimonial from a patient: 

I admit I was not a firm believer of the effects a medical grade facial yielded until I experienced one for myself. I committed to one medical facial monthly for 3 consecutive months and I had never been so thrilled with how my skin appeared (and I have worked in a dermatology office or plastic surgeon office for the past 10 years). My skin was brighter, my texture was smooth, and my skin care products seemed to absorb more evenly which helped me to maintain my glow. I no longer perceive facials as just a pampering luxury. They are a crucial component to my skin regimen.” + NT, age 31

How often should I have laser resurfacing done?

The exact number of laser resurfacing treatments varies by your specific situation. Patients being treated for acne scarring will most likely need more treatments to see desired results. Whereas patients receiving laser resurfacing for fine lines and wrinkles may need fewer treatments. Always consult your doctor to find out what works best for your situation.
