5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

The value is in the experience

I have seen Selika for a few treatments now, and I am never disappointed!! She keeps me on the quest for youthful, natural, ageless appearance and I am always happier when I leave! It started with just Dysport and then blossomed into CoolSculpting and most recently a couple of weeks ago, Refyne filler. I also see Michelle for PRP and laser treatments for skin rejuvenation and over the last...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

A Pleasant Surprise - Chicago, IL

I didn’t expect that Botox would improve acne; it was a pleasant surprise. I basically gave up faith as I’ve been to one dermatologist after another. I spent a year or more trying to get rid of it, which has now scarred my skin. It’s been a complete frustration and embarrassment. Dr. Dayan gave tiny little injections here and there and in 72 hours it has cleared up already. I’ve gotten one treatment and told Dr. Dayan that it is so much better, so we’ll see how much improvement has been made over the next three months.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Really Happy with Rhinoplasty - Chicago, IL

My Rhinoplasty was my first surgery so I was a little nervous, but Dr. Dayan and his staff made me feel very comfortable. They kept me in the loop with everything that was going on before and after. I was really informed the whole time and I liked that aspect because I didn’t know what to expect. Afterwards, they were helpful and called to check up if I had any questions. So far I really like the results. It’s natural and subtle, which was exactly what I was going for. Overall, it was a good experience and I’m really happy.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Facelift in Chicago - Chicago, IL

I consulted with three doctors before choosing Dr. Dayan. I felt a much better connection with him--he actually looked me in the eyes, instead of looking at my face. I'm sure he will do a terrific job. As he did. His staff is also amazing and hung with me through every panic and question I had during recovery. They did everything possible to make things easy and positive for me. Dr. Dayan even called me from Australia when I had a problem (who does that) and we did a facetime across the continents.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Surgery with Dr. Dayan is Not Scary at All - Chicago, IL

Last May I had a lower blepharoplasty and active laser with fat transfers. Dr. Dayan understands the complexity and the emotional component and how scary it can be to have elective surgery. He just has a very good manner with people as well as incredible expertise. I kind of panicked and then I came back for another consult and he was just as patient as the first time, so I felt a lot better...

5 out of 5 stars Chemical Peel

Chemical Peels Are my Key to a Youthful Look!

Joanie Almaguer Brown: I've been seeing Joanie for chemical peels and facials for the last 3 years and she is fantastic! She seems to know just what my skin needs at any particular time. I've let her customize my glycolic and lactic peels and she always selects the optimal products for my specific needs that need to be addressed that appointment. She is also meticulous with dermaplaning, which gets off all of the dead skin cells and peach fuzz on the face. Once you've had this done once, you are hooked! I get compliments on my skin all of the time and I owe it all to Joanie's treatments and the at-home skin care she's recommended to me. I HIGHLY recommend her if you are in the Chicago area. I'm still trying to find something in LA that can even come close to compare and most spas do not offer dermaplaning.
