Under The Eyes
As we lose volume in the under-eye area, dark, baggy circles start to appear, causing us to look tired and old. Sometimes, dark circles are hereditary, passed down from generation to generation. Regardless of the reason, there IS an effective way to treat them.
Correcting those dark circles under the eyes no longer requires surgery. Often, a temporary correction can be made by using fillers around the eye area to replace lost volume. The results are very natural, giving a more refreshed and younger appearance to the delicate area. Restylane and other dermal fillers are an excellent choice to reduce the appearance of dark circles or sunken eyes. We use an appropriate numbing agent so the treatment is comfortable and results are immediate; typically lasting 6 to 9 months and, in some cases, even longer*.

Our gifted medical staff are experts with the cosmetic fillers:
A successful soft tissue filler, Restylane Silk® Lyft can be used to boost skin’s volume, reducing the appearance of scars and wrinkles for a soft, smooth, and youthful look.* Additionally, Restylane® injections may be used to enhance the size and shape of the lips. Typically performed in under an hour at our Naperville office, Restylane® injections are associated with little discomfort or side effects, and most patients are able to return to work and normal activities immediately after their visit. The results of Restylane® injections are incredibly natural and last four months or more before maintenance treatments.*
Juvederm Voluma® XC As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.*
For a completely refreshed, outstanding result, you may combine dermal fillers with BOTOX® injections.
Facial fillers are given with a very fine needle to ensure comfort. Safe and FDA-approved, dermal fillers are very rarely associated with complications of any kind.*
Treatment usually only takes 15 to 30 minutes. The effects of facial filler injections are immediate, but they also often improve over time with the production of new collagen. Results typically last 6 months to 1 year, with repeated treatments often lasting longer. After treatment with dermal fillers, you should avoid the sun, alcohol, cold outdoor activities, and exercise for 24 hours.*
You may reapply your makeup and go home or return to work after you have had dermal filler injections. Most side effects such as mild redness or tenderness at the injection sites, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, itching, bruising, or discoloration are temporary (less than 5 days).
*Disclaimer: With injectable dermal fillers and BOTOX®, there is no guarantee of specific results and the results may vary.
