5 out of 5 stars Kybella

52 Years Old and Seeing Double! - Hinsdale, IL

Dr. Charles is extremely personable yet professional. He and his staff always provide a thorough review of what is planned and allow plenty of time to answer any questions you might have. While executing the procedure itself, he lets you know exactly what he is doing as he goes along, and checks repeatedly to make sure you are comfortable. I have tried a few other highly recommended local area dermatologists in the past, but have happily now found Dr. Charles and his practice and intend to stay.

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

40 and my Eyes Looking Tired 24/7

Dr Charles was so great. He discussed what my concerns were, went through my options and his suggestions. He then explained the procedure and calmed my nerves. The way he and his nurses performed it - I had no pain. Huge fan - won't see anyone else.

5 out of 5 stars UltraShape

Ultrashape of Abdomen - Hinsdale, IL

Dr. Charles and his wonderful staff thoroughly explained the procedure to me. I felt very prepared for the procedure and the results. I was treated with respect and the entire staff made sure I was comfortable. The procedure was completely painless, I literally felt nothing. After the 2nd treatment, my husband noticed that my belly was much flatter. I feel like I finally have an hourglass figure again and my clothes fit better. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Charles and his staff as well as the Ultrashape procedure!

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Age Is Only A Number - Hinsdale, IL

I would like to use this opportunity to highly recommend Dr. Alix Charles. Dr. Charles is highly trained and very professional. He has a very calm demeanor. Dr. Charles is excellent in assessing skin care needs and extremely interested in his patients concerns. Office appointments with Dr. Charles are never rushed as he was eager to listen to listen to my questions regarding the outcome I'd hoped to achieve. The process of receiving the Juvederm injectable was made easier because of Dr. Charles. He not only listened, but he fully explained the product, the procedure and the realistic results I could expect. I am more than satisfied with Dr. Charles...in my case he truly turned back the clock and restored me to a time gone by, proving that 'Age Is Only A Number.'

5 out of 5 stars Acne Treatment

Acne Consultation - Hinsdale, IL

I have recently been getting breakouts on my chin and Dr. Charles was my dermatologist for my consultation. After hearing what I am currently using, he assessed my chin and forehead. He was able to suggest alternatives to what I am currently using and also was able to tell me how long to continue to use my current medications. It is clear Dr. Charles is an intelligent dermatologist who cares...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

I Am a Tired-looking 41 Yo MD with 4 Kids. I Want to Look Like a Fresh-faced 41 Yo MD with 4 Kids! - Hinsdale, IL

Dr. Charles took his time with me during our consultation. He made me feel comfortable and made suggestions without making me feel self-conscious. He was very precise with Botox and filler placement. I am ECSTATIC with the results and I will definitely be going back to Dr. Charles.
