What should I know about Botox?

Introducing Botox

Botox is a a wonderful and effective temporary treatment of fine lines, wrinkles and the aging face. Over time, contracting facial muscles create wrinkle lines and deep furrows. Botox is used to relax facial muscles of expression, which result in the common types of wrinkling including;

  • Horizontal frown lines on forehead
  • Crow’s feet (wrinkles on corners of eyes)
  • Dimpled chin
  • The “11’s” (wrinkles between eyebrows)

 

What to expect

Our clinical team with meet with you to discuss treatment options. The treatment can take 10-15 minutes to complete and can easily be done during your “Lunch-break”. Botox is injected into precise locations on the face with a very fine needle. Well tolerated by patients, there is no downtime involved and you may resume regular activities after the treatment. After the treatment some patients may experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection site, which typically lasts 20 minutes-48hrs. Call (847) 892-4007 to schedule a consultation with one of our trained providers.

What should I know about dermal fillers (Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Voluma)?

Skin changes are among the most visible signs of aging. Aging is a natural process largely influenced by genetics (intrinsic aging), which causes reduction of moisture, elastin, collagen and fat. Volume depletion and loss of structure allows facial hollows and wrinkles to become more and more apparent. Along with “intrinsic” aging, our environment and lifestyle choices can also cause our skin to age prematurely (extrinsic aging), such as smoking and sun damage.

Dermal fillers are a great option for those looking to non-surgically achieve a younger, more youthful appearance by softly rejuvenating facial structure and contour through replacing volume loss and filling in wrinkles. Dermal filler treatment is safe and effective for treating facial volume loss in all skin types and colors.

What to expect

Our clinical team with meet with you to discuss treatment options. The treatment can take 10-30 minutes to complete. A topical anesthetic can first be administered for the patient’s comfort before injecting filler into the skin with a very fine needle. Well tolerated by patients, there is no down-time involved and you may resume regular activities after the treatment. After the treatment some patients may experience redness, swelling or bruising at the injection site, which can last a few days. Call (847) 892-4007 to schedule a consultation with one of our trained providers.
