I have been to Dr Abboud twice now. The first time I went in I recieved Radiesse in the cheeks and botox on my forehead. Dr. Abboud is very good about only recommending what products you actually need and which products are the best for you. I went in wanting Juvederm for my cheeks and he actually recommended Radiesse because it has a longer lasting effect. He has a great technique and it was not painful. He then told me to return in two weeks for a follow up to see how I looked once the swelling went down from the Radiesse. I went back in two weeks and it ended up that I needed some touch ups in the cheeks. He touched up my cheeks at no charge. I then decided to have my tear troughs filled with Juvederm. He had recommended that on the first visit, but I wanted to wait it out to see how my cheeks looked first. I discussed with Dr. Abboud about reviews that I read all over the US about women not being happy with Juvederm in the tear troughs and they appeared to have bags afterwards. Dr. Abboud quickly gave me a answer saying that when Juvederm is not applied under the muscle it can cause bags. He stated that if you want to go superficial under the eyes Juvederm is not the product. I felt at ease because of course these reviews do not state the explanation for the bags. He then applied the Juvederm with NO pain in my tear trough's and under my eyes. I was then worried about creases and he assured me to wait because he doesnt want to overfill. He is great about making you feel reassured. I used ice packs as he stated and I had severe swelling for 2 days. Its day 4 now and most of the swelling is gone. I am waiting for full results at 7 days, because that is when I noticed the swelling completely went down after the Radiesse. Do not do this procedure if you are going to a event or somewhere important. I would recommend doing this about 3 weeks to a month prior to a event or a important outing. The reason that I say this is because swelling takes a good 7 days to go down and then if you should need a touch up you will need another week or two to recover.
I also liked Dr. Abboud because he has great availibility. I went to his Oakbrook Terrace office and he was there Tue, Thurs, Fri and every other Sat. I find that alot of these physicians that offer these services have limited availibilty.
I am happy and plan on going back for a IPL treatment in a few weeks. He was very good to recommend the cheapest treatment for your problems. He is NOT going to suggest anything that you do not need.
Pros: Great location & excellent availibility !
Cons: None to report !
I feel like Dr. Abboud has made me look so much younger. I was starting to age prematurely and I feel so much more confident now that I've been going to his office for the past few months. He listens to your concerns and will give you great results. He doesn't try to push you purchasing other services. I've gotten laser treatments, skin rejuvination and fillers. It has made such a difference. Of course as with other places it's pricey to get these treatments but they do offer financing. His prices are reasonable if you buy more up front and are competitive with other offices. I usually don't write reviews but I have been so happy with this place.
Pros: great results
I wanted to share a review regarding several laser hair removal and dermatology procedures I have had done by Dr. Abboud and his clinic. I have been to several Chicago cosmetic dermatology offices and honestly they seem to 'farm you in and out' as fast as they can to make money. Dr. Abboud was not like this at all, he really took the time to address my concerns and make sure that things turned out the way I had hoped. I am very pleased with their office and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a physician that actually listens and cares.
Pros: Listens, Affordable, Actually Cares
Cons: None after 2 years, pretty good!
