Dermal fillers are a non surgical alternative used to diminish facial lines, as well as restore volume and fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. This causes facial muscles to be closer to the skin surface, thus smile lines and crow’s feet become more obvious. Natural or synthetic material is injected into the skin which fills in, or plumps up, lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX® is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). One 10-minute treatment involving a few tiny injections results in a noticeable improvement of the treated area.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure most often used in our office to treat spider veins. A medicine (usually a salt solution) is injected into the vessels, which then makes them shrink. Larger veins or lymphatic channels are injected by other specialists using ultrasound guidance.
Excessive sweating can be an embarrassing condition. Fortunately, the Dermatology Associates of Oakbrook Terrace provide several treatments and products for this condition. BOTOX® injections and laser therapy are a couple of tools that we utilize to treat excessive sweating and give relief.
LATISSE® is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes) to grow eyelashes longer, fuller, darker.
