Fillers for the holidays non-surgical wrinkle treatmentThe stores are filled with tinsel and toys, jolly music fills the air, and our homes are lit up from eave to eave. Wintertime is here, and that means the holidays are just around the corner. Have you decided what to give yourself this year?

If you’re looking for a gift that’s both merry and bright, consider booking an appointment for facial fillers at Aesthetics at Illinois Eye Center. 

What Do Fillers Do?
Facial fillers are a non-surgical wrinkle treatment designed to target problem areas in and around the face. Some people are looking to fill in fine lines and eliminate wrinkles, while others seek a solution for the gradual loss of facial fullness and wish to restore facial contours for a more youthful appearance.

Which Fillers Does Aesthetics at Illinois Eye Center Offer?
We offer a wide range of dermal fillers, including:

  • Juvéderm® XC
  • Juvéderm® Voluma® XC
  • Juvéderm® Volbella®
  • Juvéderm® Vollure®
  • Restylane®
  • Restylane® Lyft
  • Restylane Defyne
  • Restylane Refyne
  • Restylane® Silk

Each filler is designed with a target area in mind; for instance, Restylane Lyft is specially formulated to add natural plumping to your hands and cheeks, while Juvéderm Volbella (known as the “lip gloss filler”) smooths lips for a soft and pretty pout. As part of your private consultation, Dr. Catherine Cuite will help you choose the filler that best fits your needs. 

What Can I Expect at My Appointment?
The process of injecting fillers can be mildly uncomfortable, but some companies add lidocaine to their injectables, and we often use a topical anesthetic to allow for a more pleasant experience. You’ll feel the filler stretching your skin slightly as it fills in the targeted creases or areas of sagging skin. 

You may experience some swelling, bruising or redness; however, most symptoms disappear in a week to 10 days, leaving you ready for your close-up with Santa or selfies on New Year’s Eve.
