For people who want to avoid cosmetic surgery to achieve facial rejuvenation, the surgeon may offer various non-surgical treatment options to reduce the facial signs of aging.
A number of FDA approved injectable treatments are available today that can mitigate the effect of facial lines and wrinkles to restore a younger looking face.
Focused board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jacob Bloom provides a range of non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures to patients in Chicago, IL, and other cities and communities in this area of the US.
Botox injectable treatment can resolve one or more of the below mentioned conditions:
- Forehead: Creasing or sagging between the eyes (glabella, also known as 11 lines) and forehead or brow; horizontal lines on the forehead, asymmetrical brows
- Eyes: Crow’s feet (lines radiating out from the outer eye corners)
- Chin: Excessively deep chin cleft, also known as “peach pit” chin
- Neck: Horizontal or vertical creases on the neck
- Mouth: Drooping and sagging at the mouth corners; marionette lines; upper and lower lip creases; frown lines; gummy smile
- Hyperhidrosis (profuse sweating)
The submental area below the chin impacts the proportion and harmony of the whole face. It is an integral part of the face and neck.
Fatty deposits in the submental area can create an unattractive chin profile causing the neck and lower face to appear older and undesirable. FDA-approved Kybella injectable treatment has been developed primarily to mitigate excess submental fat (chin fat).
The treatment provider will deliver Kybella via injections directly into the targeted fat deposits underneath the chin. The Kybella treatment is individualized to meet the unique goals of every patient. This in-office treatment typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete.
The main ingredient in biocompatible dermal filler gel Juvederm is hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural compound found in the human body. HA can restore lost skin volume and enable the skin to appear naturally supple and elastic.
Patients do not need to have prior allergy testing before receiving Juvederm injectable treatment as is the case with animal-based dermal fillers. It is one of the most sought-after dermal fillers developed to reduce signs of aging on the face in a non-surgical manner.
The FDA has approved Juvederm, and it is popular all over the world due to its ability to significantly reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines.
Juvederm gel encourages fresh collagen production in the deeper skin layers. This helps in the restoration of fullness to depleted areas of the face.
Juvederm Voluma is a sought-after treatment to reduce facial signs of aging. It is explicitly designed to add fullness to the cheeks and other depleted facial areas. Juvederm Voluma filler treatment is the first non-surgical treatment that the FDA has approved for adding fullness to the cheeks.
The treatment offers almost instant fullness to the cheek area. This produces a rounder and fuller facial contour. Voluma outcomes are typically smoother in comparison to many other facial fillers as it is based on the advanced Vycross technology.
The gel developed with this technology has a higher consistency and a smoother structure. Therefore, the patient achieves a more consistent facial appearance. The average time that dermal fillers can sustain is between six months to a year. But Juvederm Voluma offers results that sustain between 18 to 24 months in a majority of cases.
