A non-surgical facelift in Chicago typically combines dermal fillers and BOTOX. Both have a different mechanism of action. However, when performed simultaneously, they can provide an impressive rejuvenating effect. The team at The John Bull Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Medispa in Chicago offers this treatment to patients who want to avoid facelift surgery.
Dermal Fillers to Correct Facial Volume Loss
Dermal fillers, also referred to as soft tissue fillers, are primarily designed to add volume and fullness to the skin surface, making them ideal for correcting the appearance thinning lips, hollowed cheeks, indented temples, and deep tear troughs. Fillers can also conceal static wrinkles–i.e., the laugh lines and marionette lines on each side of the chin–by filling in the depressions caused by volume and collagen loss. Depending on the cohesiveness and the main active ingredient, the effects of dermal fillers can last between multiple months and two years.
A good number of dermal fillers have hyaluronic acid as their main active ingredient. This substance is naturally found in the skin, and so there is no risk of an adverse reaction. In fact, they do not require allergy testing.
BOTOX to Soften Dynamic Wrinkles
BOTOX injections, meanwhile, soften the dynamic wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement. The treatment works by relaxing certain facial muscles, which in turn softens or even eliminates expression lines such as glabellar lines between the brows, horizontal creases across the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
The Benefits of Combining Dermal Fillers and BOTOX
A 2015 study published by the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal has shown that combining dermal fillers with BOTOX resulted in longer-lasting effects. A non-surgical facelift in Chicago can provide natural-looking results and impressive rejuvenating effects while also correcting various signs of aging. Aside from natural-looking results, meticulous injections do not entail prolonged social downtime, which is a factor with a facelift and other surgery-based procedures.
