Have you lost the plump and fresh-faced look you had when you were younger? With age, skin can lose its natural elasticity and volume. At Rogers Medical in Plainfield, Illinois, Dr. Teresa Pecherek-Rogers and her team offer Botox® and fillers to men and women who want to erase fine lines, improve the appearance of wrinkles, and experience glowing, beautiful skin.
Doctors inject Botox and dermatologic “fillers” to improve your skin’s appearance. Botox helps stop muscle contractions, which enables wrinkles to soften and appear less noticeable. Other fillers work by plumping up areas of sagging skin, like under the eyes or around the mouth.
Botox and fillers are safe and effective for most patients. At Rogers Medical, options such as Kybella®, Juvederm®, Voluma®, Vobella®, and Latisse® are all available.
If you opt to get facial fillers at Rogers Medical, it’s an outpatient procedure. Together, you and Dr. Rogers discuss what areas you want to treat and which injectables are best-suited for your goals, skin type, and age.
Dr. Rogers cleanses and preps the treatment areas with an antibacterial agent to avoid infection. If you’re sensitive to needles, she may chill your skin or apply a topical anesthetic to help numb the area. She then injects the filler into the treatment areas and may massage the skin to distribute the filler evenly.
The procedure is brief and painless. Afterward, you receive detailed instructions about caring for your skin. After the initial swelling subsides, you can return to the office to have a “touch-up” procedure.
Your skin may feel tender for a few days, and Dr. Rogers may advise you to avoid the sun or strenuous physical activity. Dr. Rogers may also encourage you to minimize swelling by using an ice pack.
Over-the-counter anti-aging products can only do so much to help aging skin. As a safe and affordable treatment option for most patients, Botox and fillers offer several benefits. These may include:
Injectable fillers are cheaper than more intensive laser therapies.
In addition to filling in fine lines and wrinkles, injectables can help improve the overall contours of the face, which enhances your features.
Injectables have a very short recovery time of just a few days.
Compared with some of the newer, invasive facial rejuvenation services, fillers are generally safe for long-term use.
