Did seeing your own face on screen during a videoconference send you into shock? You are not alone – when lockdown forced us all to talk to one another online, many of us were shocked at what we saw: lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin that make us look older than we really are. The computer screen and artificial light seem to work in tandem to make every small line and blemish really stand out during a Zoom call; caking on makeup or trying to hide your face just makes it all worse.
Wellbeing is more than just the absence of disease – it is the process of growth and change to bring you closer to your ideal state of being. In other words, wellbeing involves feeling and looking your best. Aesthetics at Illinois Eye Center helps you achieve overall wellbeing by providing you with a full line of scientifically advanced cosmetic services and products.
Facial waxing removes unwanted hair from your face, leaving your skin looking smoother and softer. Here are six things you should know about facial waxing.
- Unlike shaving, which cuts off hair at the surface of the skin, waxing removes the facial hair right from its root. As it grows back in, waxed hair is smooth and stubble-free. Shaved hair, by comparison, grows back stiff and stubbly.
- Waxing does not hurt the skin of most people. If you have very sensitive skin, or you are prone to breakouts, opt for professional waxing treatments.
If your stubborn frown lines or crow’s feet are getting you down, maybe it’s time to look into a quick solution. BOTOX® and Dysport® are both simple and effective treatments used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles.
After just one treatment, you will see quick results by seeing smoother, younger-looking skin in just a few days. Both BOTOX and Dysport are FDA approved for cosmetic indications that lead to very impressive results.
If you’re looking for fewer wrinkles without extensive surgery, this could be the right resolution for you.

Do you ever wish you could simply peel away fine lines, wrinkles, and roughness to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin? Now you can – with a chemical peel.
Dead skin sitting at the surface of the skin cells can cause minor skin imperfections that make you look older and more tired. Washing your face helps remove these dead skin cells, but it leaves many skin cells behind. Chemical peels remove these skin cells and address visible skin imperfections to improve the overall appearance of the skin on your face, neck, or hands.

BOTOX® is everywhere and you’ve recently read up on the magic that is HydraFacial®, but what in the world is KYBELLA®?
We’ve got the lowdown on this fat-fighting treatment including answers to your most important questions.
What is KYBELLA?
KYBELLA is an injectable compound containing deoxycholic acid, a molecule your body already makes to help breakdown and improve the absorption of dietary fat. Used therapeutically, those same compounds can be used to target submental fat, also known as a double chin.
Have you heard of the cutting-edge “liquid facelift”? That’s what influencers are calling the Y LIFT®, but most of our patients just know it as “that awesome treatment that changed my life”. That may sound like an oversell, but once you see the Y LIFT in action, it’s almost impossible not to be impressed.
Imagine your face as a giant Y. When envisioning this Y, you’ll see lifted cheekbones and under eyes, a defined chin and jawline, with a contoured upper neck. As we grow older, our faces lose volume and that Y shape gradually begins to disappear. The Y LIFT uses a unique combination of hyaluronic acid and a specialized titanium instrument to deliver five major benefits.
