What makes a face appear youthful? Smooth, firm skin, round cheeks, and full, sensuous lips are typically at the top of the list. Restoring that appearance without plastic surgery is possible with injectable fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, at our Barrington, IL, med spa.
Our experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Renee Burke, will recommend treatments that are tailored to address your concerns. The latest generation of fillers offers products formulated to treat specific areas of the face for results that last longer than ever.
Our menu of fillers includes:
JUVÉDERM: The popular JUVÉDERM product line includes gels of various consistencies. Like most fillers, they are made using hyaluronic acid (HA)–a molecule that’s naturally found in the body–which attracts and stores water. They hydrate the skin and restore volume that’s lost with age. The JUVÉDERM products used at our med spa include:
VOLLURE®: The most recent addition to the JUVÉDERM product line, VOLLURE adds volume to the nasolabial folds and fine lines that develop around the mouth and nose.
VOLUMA®: Losing volume in the cheeks can give them a hollow, or sunken appearance. VOLUMA injections can restore a more youthful look and is approved by the FDA to last up to 2 years.
Restylane®: The Restylane product line is made from hyaluronic acid to soften and smooth facial lines and wrinkles by plumping them from the inside out, similar to JUVÉDERM. Restylane works best on nasolabial folds and is also used to augment the lips. Results last about 6 months to 1 year, depending on the treatment area.
Restylane Refyne: This product is designed to treat wrinkles and folds around the mouth and is flexible enough to allow the mouth to move naturally. Results last approximately 1 year.
Restylane Defyne: Restylane Defyne is another flexible product and is designed to erase deeper folds around the mouth. It is often used in conjunction with Restylane Refyne for best results. Like Refyne, results last approximately a year.
Restylane Lyft: This VOLUMA alternative is also approved to provide subtle lift to the midface without surgery. These natural looking results can last up to 1 year.
Restylane Silk: Some patients prefer this smoother gel over VOLBELLA for lip augmentation. It has the smallest particle size, which gives our skilled injectors the precision to achieve natural-looking lip contours and accurately fill lip lines. Results last approximately 6 months.
Thinning lips are one sign of aging that is sometimes overlooked. Lip enhancement has gained popularity in recent years with celebrities posting photos on social media, and we’ve certainly seen an increase in patients of all ages wanting lip augmentation. Most of our patients want subtle enhancement, and we use one of the most recent JUVÉDERM fillers, VOLBELLA®, to create results that look natural.
Lip augmentation requires a skilled injector who understands how to create more sensuous lips without the over-filled appearance that patients want to avoid. VOLBELLA is also a good option for minimizing fine lines around the mouth that can add years to your appearance. Like virtually all of the fillers we use, VOLBELLA is pre-mixed with a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the treatment.
Sculptra® Aesthetic: Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid, a substance that works deep within the skin to stimulate natural collagen production. It performs best when administered through a series of approximately 4 injections spaced about a month apart. Over time, newly produced collagen works to plump up the skin, creating a youthful, healthy look and reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and folds. Results can last up to 2 years.
BELOTERO BALANCE®: Like JUVÉDERM, BELOTERO is formulated using hyaluronic acid with a soft, smooth consistency that makes it a good choice for many patients who want to soften wrinkles and fine lines around the nose and mouth, including “smile” or “smoker’s” lines.
RADIESSE®: An alternative to HA-based fillers, RADIESSE uses calcium hydroxyapatite–which is found in bone–as a filler. It can last longer than many HA fillers–up to 18 months in some cases–and stimulates collagen production. We may combine RADIESSE with other gel fillers to create more natural-looking results. RADIESSE can make your hands look more youthful, but it isn’t appropriate to use around the lips.
Dr. Burke creates exceptional results by combining the skill of an accomplished plastic surgeon with empathy and compassion.
Dr. Burke may recommend combining facial fillers with BOTOX® Cosmetic, or with another nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatment for more comprehensive results.
