5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

Fraxil Changed my Life, and I've Had a Lot of Other Things Done.

Look, I've been through other painful things, and other cosmetic procedures ad nauseum.  The results from Fraxel, more so than any other treatment have given back to me the best return on investment of all the different treatments I've had.  I spent 400 dollars per treatment for five treatments for a total cost of $2000 to use the laser on only about 33% of my face.  This was...

Outstanding Service, Friendly Staff, Great Environment - Lincolnshire, IL

Advanced Dermatology knows how to please and service! Clinic is very well maintained and run by extremely courteous staff. The procedure was explained to me in advance prior to the treatment. Dr. Taub was was extremely professional and answered all of my questions and gave me a sense of ease. The attention to detail and customer service from beginning to post follow-up is like none I've seen at other places. I would definitely recommend Dr. Taub to my family and friends.

Fraxel Love ! - Lincolnshire, IL

I did a lot of research on Doctors who perform fraxel and chose Dr. Amy Taub based upon her level of experience and knowledge. I couldn't have made a better choice. She answered all my questions about the treatment and made me feel comfortable and secure. After the treatment she made sure I had all my after care instructions and again took the time to tell me what to expect over the next few days. My experience at Advanced Dermatology was stellar. I think it is so important to trust in your Doctor which is why I will be back for other treatments and will recommend Dr.Taub to my family and friends.

Great Staff, All Extremely Talented and Hard-working. They Make You Feel Good and Comfort That You Are in Good Hands. - Lincolns

Doctor Taub really proves to not only be extremely hard-working but also talented. I feel like when she looked at my skin she knew immediately how to heal and fix it. She is definitely not shy from going above and beyond to achieve what the patient wants out of the appointments. You can tell she believes that people can have the beautiful and healthy skin they desire

One Stop Care - Glencoe, IL

I have been using Skinfo Products for years. Usually I have them delivered but now that there's a location in Glencoe, I can walk over! My daughter-in-law also orders from Skinfo via me as she lives in London, England, and cannot order overseas on-line. The London daughter-in-law arranged for my grandson when in the USA to visit Dr. Taub. He needed laser removal of a small mole and advice...

My Skin Looks Amazing Now! - Lincolnshire, IL

I was so impressed with Dr. Taub. She was very interested in my progress. I had a series of 4 laser treatments and she always cared about the results of my treatments. She truly wanted me to have beautiful skin. I owe it all to her and her high standard of care. She is a smart doctor with many years of experience.

Important to Research Your IPL Provider

I was paranoid to get IPL done. But I did a lot of research online and found a top-notch dermatologist who is board certified AND is a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine. And she did a great job.This is only the first of 5 treatments. However, I feel much better now that I've had my first treatment. My best advise to anyone considering IPL treatment is to NOT cut corners on...

2 out of 5 stars Dysport

Poor Service, Poor Results, Poor Follow Up - Lincolnshire, IL

I have been to Advanced Dermatology several times - both Lincolnshire and Glencoe. I have seen Dr. Taub and others for Dysport. The first few times were fine, except that Dr. Taub couldn't be less cold or indifferent. She is clearly about the money and pushing her products. I stopped going to them after an office visit to Glencoe where they ran out of Dysport and I had to wait over 30...

1 out of 5 stars Restylane

Bad Resty experience

I've had restylane under my eyes before at this office and it was a good experience when Emily did the procedure. However, when Dr. Taub did the procedure she put one entire syringe each in one spot under each eye and I was left with giant bags. No attention was given to facial symmetry or proper placement. I returned for a few attempts to fix it but ended up going to another practice to have...

She Ruined Sunny Days for Me Forever . . . -Lincolnshire, IL

Dr. Taub was my dermatologist for 12 years before I went to her for this procedure. I trusted her. I thought she was smart and well trained. She completely screwed up on me, and did not follow through with my care afterwards. She cares about expanding her practice and making lots of money. But, she does not care about her patients after they pay her fees.
