The hands of time can be unfair, causing you to look older than you are or are at heart. Fortunately, there are more resources than ever available to combat aging. With Facial Aesthetics Chicago, you can achieve a more youthful appearance and feel more confident.
Beautiful smiles radiate health and confidence, and since the mouth is one of the main focal points of the face, it’s no wonder the smile plays such an important role in how we perceive ourselves and how others perceive us. Why not consider other areas that you may not have expected that impact the aesthetics of your smile alongside having the teeth you’ve always wanted? Listed below are a few cosmetic procedures that Chicago Facial Aesthetics cosmetic specialists offer.
Botox and Facial Esthetics:
Botox is most commonly used to smooth out wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes. Botox is a muscle relaxer that can relieve facial pain. Botox can also be used to smooth the wrinkles around the lips, which are commonly called “smokers’ wrinkles.” Smoking may not be the cause of these wrinkles, but rather strong contractions of the orbicularis oris muscles. Through Botox Therapy and Lip Augmentation, facial cosmetic specialists can correct a high lip line without the patient having to undergo surgery. They instead inject dermal fillers into the muscles surrounding the lips so that the lips can’t be raised as much. Although Botox for these kinds of procedures has the disadvantage of requiring 2-3 visits a year, it has the advantage of being able to correct the problem in one visit and being minimally invasive.
Specialists in facial cosmetics can reshape the nose with a procedure called rhinoplasty. Those who are dissatisfied with the shape and size of their nose may be able to improve their appearance. One of the first cosmetic procedures developed was nasal reconstruction, which is still one of the most common procedures performed today. During rhinoplasty surgery, deformities of the nose are corrected by removing, rearranging, or reshaping bone and cartilage. Pain is minimal and controlled with medication after this procedure. Bruising occurs around the eyes and fades within a few days. Discoloration usually goes away in two weeks.
Chemical peels are beneficial for wrinkles, acne scars, and irregular pigmentation, such as freckles and age spots. This procedure is also effective in precancerous conditions like keratoses (thick, rough, reddish growths).
A chemical peel can be light, medium, or deep. Light peels remove superficial wrinkles, while medium and deep peels are used for more serious conditions. A small applicator is used to apply the chemical solution after thoroughly cleansing the face. Excess solution is removed, and the process is repeated on other areas of the face. Depending on the patient’s skin condition, the amount of improvement varies. Damaged skin can be significantly improved, which can produce dramatic results.
Chemical peels are often used in conjunction with a skin rejuvenation program. In addition to the other procedures described, the program can also be undertaken separately. Following a consultation and establishing a treatment plan for the patient’s cosmetic needs, it is performed by the patient at home. We are dedicated to providing you with the newest and most effective skincare treatments.
Blepharoplasty can correct sagging eyelids, bags, or pouches beneath the eyes, as well as excess folds around the eyes. It is used to remove excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids and is often performed in conjunction with other surgeries such as facelifts, eyebrow lifts, and forehead lifts. A blepharoplasty can be performed under general anesthesia (while you are asleep) or under IV sedation. Both are very comfortable. Pre-medication is used before surgery to decrease swelling after the operation.
An endoscopic brow lift provides a smoother, more youthful appearance by raising the eyebrows and reducing ridges and furrows on the forehead. The procedure can be combined with other surgeries.
There are several small incisions made on the top of the head near the hairline, but they are hidden from view. The forehead and eyebrows are elevated and stabilized with resorbable plastic screws. Through the use of an endoscope and specialized instruments, we can perform forehead lifting through small incisions in the scalp. As a result, the procedure is much less invasive.
