Injectable Dermal Fillers at Center for Gynecology & Obstetrics in Chicago, IL
Center for Gynecology and Cosmetics offers injectable dermal fillers to fill in lines and creases in your skin that cause wrinkles, smile or laugh lines, and folds around the nose and mouth. These fillers fill in collagen in your skin and temporarily give you a smoother and more youthful appearance. We offer Juvederm, Belotero and Radiesse at our practice.
Juvederm® and BELOTERO
These are injectable gels that are smooth gel fillers that are injected under your skin to instantly smooth out those wrinkles or folds that look like parentheses along the side of your nose and mouth. Results are quick, and last nine months to one year.
RADIESSE® is a safe, FDA-approved dermal filler that restores a natural, youthful look. Radiesse is injected into the skin through a simple, safe and minimally invasive procedure. Radiesse typically lasts 18 months to two years.
Both Juvederm, Belotero, and Radiesse have minimal side effects, which are limited to mild irritation, swelling, itching, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects usually subside within a few days. Depending on your situation, you may only need one injection of either filler.
Although injectable dermal fillers can provide long-lasting results, neither filler is permanent.
