Are you searching for an efficient and effective way to look younger? Age catches up on all of us. Of course, there are many ways to reduce the signs of aging. Some of these methods include surgical procedures, such as facelifts. While surgery is highly effective, it can be pricey and require more time for wounds to heal. Thankfully, there are minimally invasive ways to have younger-looking skin.
At Chicago Aesthetic Surgery Institute, we offer various cosmetic injectables. We can help you boost your confidence by providing wrinkle-reduction treatments. If you need to know more about these aesthetic injectables, feel free to visit us in Rosemont, IL, or contact us online to schedule an appointment.
What are Cosmetic Injectables?
Cosmetic injectables are minimally invasive, non-surgical procedures that reduce the signs of aging. Some cosmetic injections prevent muscle contractions that lead to wrinkles, while others tighten skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Two primary types of cosmetic injections are dermal fillers and neurotoxins. You may be familiar with brands like Botox® and Restylane. These are just two of many cosmetic injectables.
Dermal fillers are a type of anti-aging injection. They can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore volume to sunken areas on your face. Dermal fillers provide complete facial rejuvenation. Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid to deliver natural-looking, low-risk results. We offer Restylane® and Juvéderm® dermal fillers.
Restylane is a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid. It comes in the form of a gel that we inject into your skin to reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, and restore volume. Hyaluronic acid, the primary ingredient of Restylane, is found in your body. This means that Restylane is a low-risk anti-aging injection. Patients have a lower chance of developing an allergic reaction. The texture of the Restylane gel is more granular, which makes it ideal for patients with volume loss in their faces. Restylane treatments are non-surgical and minimally invasive. There is no downtime or extended recovery necessary after your treatment.
The Restylane Collection
Restylane offers a range of products aimed at different skin concerns. The gel consistency of these products differs, so it can target specific areas of your face. The Restylane group offers the following products:
This is a filler that can make your lips smoother and softer. Restylane Silk offers natural results.
Restylane Lyft can be used to restore volume to your hands. It can also lift your cheeks and reduce the appearance of smile lines.
Restylane Refyne and Restylane-L
These Restylane products can effectively treat wrinkles, known as laugh lines, that run down the sides of your nose and mouth.
Restylane Defyne can eliminate moderate-to-severe facial folds and fine lines as it tightens your skin.
This Restylane lip filler smooths wrinkles around your upper lip, enhancing the shape of your lips for a younger look.
Restylane Contour can restore the natural contour on your face to deliver a refreshed look to your face.
Juvéderm is similar to Restylane in how it works. It smooths out wrinkles and fine lines while restoring volume to your face. It can also be used to enhance your lips. Juvéderm has a range of different products used to target specific areas of your face.
Hollowed areas under your eyes and cheeks can give you a tired look. Juvéderm Voluma can add volume to the mid-face area, making you look young again.
Juvéderm and Juvéderm Ultra
You can restore your youthful skin by smoothing the lines on the side of your nose and mouth with Juvéderm and Juvéderm Ultra.
Unlike dermal fillers that inject a gel under your skin to restore volume and tighten skin, neurotoxins target muscle contractions that lead to dynamic wrinkles. As you laugh, smile, frown, and yawn, muscle contractions result in wrinkles and fine lines. Neurotoxins relax these facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. These injectables use a type of neurotoxin, known as botulinum toxin, to inhibit muscle movements. We offer Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau® cosmetic injectables. These treatments work in the same way by relaxing your muscles to reduce the signs of aging.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Injectables
With so many cosmetic treatments on the market, who can tell which is the best one? If you have all the necessary information, you can make the right decision about your skincare treatments. We have compiled a list of advantages of using cosmetic injections. Here they are:
Face injectables can be used on various areas of your face to provide a full treatment of wrinkles and fine lines. You can also treat loose skin on your hands. They can also be used to treat different skin concerns. Not only are they highly effective for wrinkles and hollow areas of the face, but some cosmetic injections can also reduce the appearance of acne scars and enhance the size and shape of your lips.
Cosmetic injections offer lasting results. On average, patients can enjoy younger-looking skin for as long as two years, depending on the type of injectable used.
You won’t look fake or expressionless when you use cosmetic injectables. Patients can look forward to natural results that will appear gradually.
Since cosmetic injectable treatments are non-surgical, they don’t require downtime. The treatments are often quick and easy, with no lengthy recovery period.
