Beat depression without meds at Success TMS in Hoffman Estates, IL. TMS Therapy is proven more effective than meds & is FDA-approved.
Are you struggling with depression and wondering if you’ll ever find a treatment that works? Standard treatments like medication and lifestyle adjustments don’t work for everyone. If you’re still looking for effective depression treatment, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) could be the answer. Success TMS Treatment Centers (Success TMS) in Hoffman Estates, IL offers TMS, a safe, drug-free depression treatment that works. TMS therapy has a proven track record: 2,150,000 treatment sessions provided to over 65,000 people.
TMS depression treatment doesn’t require taking any medication and is completely non-invasive. It stimulates a region of the brain called your prefrontal cortex, which is where mood is regulated. If you have depression, this part of the brain is under-active, which means your mood isn’t regulated as well as it should be. TMS therapy stimulates the prefrontal cortex to improve your mood and lift your symptoms of depression.
When you have TMS therapy at our Hoffman Estates Success TMS treatment center, one of our technicians gently places an electromagnetic coil on your head. They switch the device on, and the coil sends painless magnetic pulses to your prefrontal cortex. The stimulatory effect of the magnetic pulses helps the prefrontal cortex work more effectively to regulate mood.
TMS therapy is a highly effective depression treatment. Our patient TMS reviews show it.
Here’s what makes TMS therapy unique:
TMS therapy is completely drug-free, which makes it suitable for people who:
Not everyone is able to, nor do they want to, take anti-depressants. TMS therapy can be a good alternative to get relief from depression.
TMS therapy isn’t the only drug-free depression treatment. Electroconvulsive therapy, vagus nerve stimulation, and deep brain stimulation are options. While these treatments are drug-free, they are also invasive, requiring surgery or unpleasant procedures, and often involving anesthesia.
TMS therapy is both drug-free and non-invasive – and you can even listen to music or watch TV while you have treatment!
Some people have side effects as a result of TMS therapy, but these side effects are short-lived and mild. The most common side effect is discomfort at or near the treatment site, while having the treatment. This discomfort usually subsides after the first week of treatment sessions.
Fewer than 5% of patients stop having TMS therapy because of side effects.
For most people, it takes around two to three weeks to start seeing positive changes in mood after beginning TMS therapy. For others, it happens even sooner!
The benefits of TMS therapy are long-term; however, you may need booster treatments to stay depression-free. If you do, it’ll likely be just one per year. Most insurance providers cover booster treatments.
TMS therapy has documented success in treating depression, and it’s FDA-approved. This means that most insurance carriers do provide coverage for TMS therapy.

At your first appointment at Success TMS, you’ll complete some paperwork, and then have an interview with our physician. The paperwork takes around 15 minutes, and the interview takes up to 45 minutes. The physician will review your medical and mental health history, and then discuss the treatment with you. You’ll have the chance to ask any questions you have about TMS therapy. We want you to have all the information you need to make a confident decision!
A full course of treatment lasts up to six weeks, with as many as five sessions each week, then three weeks with less frequent treatments.
When you become a Success TMS patient in Hoffman Estates, we’ll provide you with a written schedule of your appointments for the full course of treatment. This is to help you plan your calendar while you’re having the treatment.
Most people with depression are eligible for TMS therapy, but not everyone can have the treatment. People with non-removable metal in their head or face could be disqualified because metal can react unfavorably with magnetic energy.
You may be ineligible if you have the following in your head:
Some dental work (Most is fine.)
