Anyone know a doctor in Chicago who’s an artist with lasers and injectibles?

I live in chicago and am trying to find and "artist" who is good with all fillers, botox etc. I am a redhead and I have had a fat transfer where placement is not ideal. It is important to have someone who can help with volume and poor skin tone(large pores, fine lines etc.). I am 48 and my skin looks much older than it should. I have had some great things done and some bad things done and would like to just find one person to work with in all areas. Thank you

This is such a tough one and I know women all over the country/world are struggling with this right now. I think demand for high quality services in this "new beauty" area has outstripped the number of very highly trained, experienced, honest providers. Sometimes I wish I had time to really start a training institute for doctors that’s more than some weekend "training seminar."  Maybe when my 3 children go to college!  You can start by looking over this guide to some of the top cosmetic dermatologists across the country.

This is also hard because one dermtologist may be great with injectibles but not so much with lasers or vice versa.  Also, it’s often a matter of "fit" with that doctor’s communication style and their aesthetic sense. It may be fine but if it doesn’t match yours well, it doesn’t work.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
