Rhinoplasty/nose job meeting

Dr Turowski has returned from Aspen/Colorado where he attended a rhinoplasty/nose job meeting. It is great to exchange ideas with our colleagues! I am pleased to hear that more and more surgeons are warming up to the idea of not using gauze packing after rhinoplasty - much less pain for the patients . I have stopped using this several years ago - what a relief for our patients!

Laser hair removal - new gold standard - Duet!

We are ready- new Lightsheer Duet hair removal laser is available in our clinic, first in Chicago. It is a revolution. It replaces previous gold standard in laser hair removal - Lightsheer that we used for the past few years. New laser, with vacuum technology & larger head size has several advantages - no messy prep with gel, no need for topical anesthetic and much faster treatment time. This is especially important for large areas such as backs (Men!) . But most important is improvement in pain - virtually none! Our patients love it. For the ones that were tired of painful treatments this is a savior! So far in Chicago we are the only clinic to offer this breakthrough technology!
