“Great Chicago dermatology office with great prices”
Great Skin Tightening Results.
They say ( no pain, no gain), but this procedure has bitten this statement, may face look very tight after 10 minutes procedure, only thing I have felt is worm feeling for 15 min, I did not belief only $99 got me that results.
I highly recommend this office, and this procedure.
Great Botox. I have received Botox by many doctors, but This has been my best experience . The staff is so nice and service is that of a five star hotel. I highly recommend.
I am very pleased with Dr. Abboud, and his staff, he made clear up front that I need average 6 to 12 sessions, he has explained all the process of laser hair removal, I have felt robber band felling during the treatment, I have not seen any result before session # 4 ( as he predicted), I had to buy another package of 6 sessions, I feel too much hair reduction after session # 9.
I really appreciated the doctor clarification and honesty.
The most honest doctor.
I have been seeing the doctor for the last 5 years, I have never experienced any problem in his office, or staff, the doctor explain everything in details, he is always on top of his staff, nobody in that practice push me to do anything I do not want.
I think what called Lena the truth teller should be accountable to what she said, to me she is not telling the truth, there is no Sculptra with $250, I have been using Radiesse since 2007, it is the standard to mix it with Laidocaine for pain relief.
Rude, Rushed, Waste of Money.
I have never written one of these reviews, but I feel that I must share my experience at Charming Skin Med Spa aka Chicago Laser Cosmetic & Dermatology.
I feel that all of these great reviews on here have undoubtly been written by friends and or family members of Dr. Abboud because everyone I know had terrible experienes with the place.
You rarely to never see the Dr., so you're in the care of young ladies with little to no professional training. I went there for laser hair removal treatments and saw no results at all. I don't know if this was due to the fact that they were not setting the machine to the right settings or the fact that treatments took only a few minutes. If I pointed out areas that I was sure they missed, they would cop an attitude and quickly brush over them.
The entire staff, especially Dr. Abboud, is EXTREMELY RUDE. They make it clear that they are only seeing you because they want as much of your money as possible.
I would never return to Laser & Cosmetic Dermatology!
The most unprofessional experience I have ever had!. What a rip-off! I purchased two microdermabrasion treatments at Laser & Cosmetic Dermatology in Oak Brook, IL. I have undergone microdermabrasion procedures at other offices in the past and it’s always been a painless or even an enjoyable experience, so I feel that I have a good comparison on how it should be performed and what it should feel like. My treatment at Laser & Cosmetic Dermatology was by far the worst experience I have ever had during a cosmetic procedure. First Dr. Abboud came into the room to introduce himself, he immediately tried to talk me into additional treatments and a professional visit with him, which I said from the start I wasn’t interested in, then his assistant came to do the treatment, she lacked any skill or professional knowledge about the procedure or any other skin treatments; she didn’t wash her hands or wear gloves before reaching for my face – I had to ask her to do so, she dropped the gauze she was wiping my face with on the carpet and was going to continue using it – I had to ask her to replace it with a new gauze. Because the machine wouldn’t work, she kept hitting it; when she finally got it to work, she was very rough on my face - the wand seemed uneven so her strokes were painful and felt like scratches. When I told her that I don’t feel any suction she noticed that she didn’t turn the crystals on, after a few minutes she ran out of the crystals and informed me that she didn’t have more to fill the machine with and therefore my treatment was over. She also told me not to worry because if the doctor would have performed the treatment it would have only lasted up to 10 minutes and she has already been working on me for 15, so I am getting my money’s worth. At the end she tried to apply a secret ingredient cream to my face which was a home remedy made by the doctor in their office. Aside from the treatment being overpriced and of extremely poor quality, it was the most unprofessional experience I have ever had in a clinic or even an esthetician’s office. I wouldn’t go back there even if I was paid to do so.
Dr Aboud an amazing top notch doctor. i have seen Dr Aboud several times since 2010 for varioius cosmetic purposes and have found him to be one of the nicest and most generous doctors i have ever met.. who ever wote that bogus letter (Lena?)should be called into acct. Never ever has Dr A ever pushed me in to getting anything just to make money. much of the time he will offer only what is really necessary and has never ever spoken out of line. He is a kind , generous Doctor.I have recommended him many times and plan on seeing him again in a short while..A good decent man, by the way brochures are visible his waiting room as is in any drs, office..AS for Sculptura bieng only $250 proves this is a bogus letter. Not even generous Dr Aboud isnt a fool to give it away. God bless you Dr Aboud!!!.. .
Don't believe any of these other fake "good" reviews.
So I read a review online says that doc abboud never pressures you to buy, which was a huge lie. His secretary must have wrote that. So he tells me about some blood filler product but doesn't have brochures which I found strange. He changed me 750 for the procedure, basically taking blood out of my arm and injecting it into my face b4 doing a few other steps. He said it would work in 3 week guaranteed. he also charged me 250 for Sculptra, which he had no brochures about either. He said that Sculptra was an instant filler. When i got home and went on line to read about it, it stated it was not an instant filler. He really pushed me to get it so the review was a lie. Hes pushy pushy pushy !! Another reason I trusted him is bc he know my cousin who is a well know doctor and he is from the same country as my family is from. I was swollen for 1 week and bruised . 3 weeks later i went in for my follow up appt. he tells me to wait another month for the products to work( I still trusted him somewhat at this point bc he is a good bull shi***) When I called his secretary to schedule the appt I asked if I could get a photo facial done and how much. She replied, its on sale for 50.00. So that day He tells me to get matrix ir which is a laser tx that will make my skin tighter in just one tx for 250 $. I said I will try it. He didn't even use goggles on me and did it super fast ! When I get up to pay I get charged 700.00. My face turned red. I told the sec that she said 50.00 for the photo facial on the phone , but she put on this dumb ass look on her face. The doc came and told me that him being a doc who performed the tx is expensive. He says he can charge me 500.00 for both. I argued the price and was super mad but didn't want to make a scene. The tx did work at all ! I didnt feel that the machine was even turned on and he did it super fast ! I had my friend call in about the price of the laser treatments the next day and the sec told her the machine was not working. A few weeks later I email him about my dissatisfaction and he tells me to come in and wants to make me a happy customer. I drive like 20 miles away from my home to his palos hill loc and take my friend with for support. He first turns to her and tells her she needs to do this and that. She didn't go in for anything. Then he tells her he will give her a good deal on Sculptra!!!!! He wouldn't leave it alone sculptra sculptra sculptra !!! HE then told me that he will give ME 3 free syringes of filler for my time and dissatisfaction after 10mins of negotiating. We scheduled for the following week and left kinda happy. At our next visit he proceeds mixing and hiding the syringes and keeps leaving the room, while his Medical assistant is distracting us. He basically injected us will lidocaine and water or something. lidocaine is a numbing soln that is already premixed in syringes docs should never add their own as a comp rep informed me)
I had was swelling and 3 bruses in my face, one was a large black eye that took over 2 weeks to go away ! I understand bruses can happen but he is very careless and really does not know what hes doing at all NO SKILLS AND THEY HAD NO ICE TO PUT ON OUR FACES !!!!
Never have anything done the first time you have your initial consult, if they have too many sales and promotions stay away !!!
Injections Perfected by Dr. Abboud!!. This is my first review and feel compelled to advise any of you looking for a flawless professional in the world of dermatology that Dr. Abboud is the king of his craft. I have been seeing him for many years for acne flare-ups as well as being absolutely blessed that he graced me with his artistry in Radiesse and Restylane applications. I have had lips, naso-labial fold, acne pock marks as well as my cheek-bones filled and beautifully so! Im a perfectionist by nature so my skin is the most important physical trait to me because it is the first thing people see and it implies so much about your well-being. Im always advised what is best in the market for my specific desires being addressed at that time and have never had bruising only minimal discomfort and swelling due to the nature of the procedure. Please disregard Nadia's review, if she has ever bruised from any injection it will most likely occur from her own sensitivity and not from a skilled professional let alone Dr. Abboud! He is meticulous and generous! I cant imagine anyone having anything negative to say about him! Ive referred him to my mother for injections and microdermabrasion and my boyfriend is having a laser tattoo removal so he is trusted for a variety of procedures in our opinions. Ive been seeing him for years no matter where I have moved for these reasons and his prices cant be beat either! I hope you see him soon! You will be glad you did!! Look for his subtle humor, he is very funny when you least expect it! I love that! And Ive never had issues with scheduling either! Across the board 5 Stars!!!
Dysport Great Result. I have had 2 sessions of Dysport in this office over the last 6 months, I have never get better job in any other office, I had no pain, no bruises. It work fast as the doctor explain to me within 2 days I have seen the result. No wonder the doctor stated that he has not use Botox since Dysport hit the market.
