Dermal Fillers for Face Sculpting in Chicago
(Treat Signs of Aging: Facial Volume Loss, Wrinkles, & Droopy Skin)
Wrinkles, droopy skin, and creases around the lips and eyes alongside volume loss are some of the most common signs of aging. Although these come naturally with the aspect of getting older, it is drastic for those who love to keep up with their appearance and the ones who are younger at heart. Treatment for facial contouring in Chicago is primarily achieved through the use of facial fillers (dermal fillers).
There are a variety of different compositions and formulas of dermal fillers in which each is designed to treat a specific area of the face. Fillers act as a “synthetic fat” in which they essentially fill out the areas of the face that have experienced volume loss giving the face a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are one of the go-to options for facial contouring in Chicago due to the minimally-invasive treatment that reshapes the face and enhances the tributes.
What are Injectable Fillers?
Injectable fillers have been FDA approved and are safe. The facial injection procedure is minimally invasive and will help contour your appearance to enhance your most beautiful features. Injectable fillers are made up of a gel-like substance that is used to rejuvenate an aging face. As the years go by, the face loses a significant amount of collagen, and alongside it, the production of elastin slows down rapidly. These vital proteins that are found in the skin support the cells and tissue in the face. When these proteins and fat are lost, the youthful appearance that you once desired will begin to fade away over time.

What Can I Expect from Injectable Dermal Filler Treatments?
Cosmetic fillers are extremely safe and require little to no downtime, especially when done with a professional cosmetic surgeon like our very own Dr. Caughlin. Due to the fact that cosmetic fillers are minimally invasive, some side effects may occur, but they are generally mild. Some of these side effects include:
- Bruising – While the skin and tissue in your face adjust to the cosmetic fillers, you may experience mild bruising in the area that you are contouring. They may last between 5-14 days, but our specialist has some great tips to prevent bruising following your treatment; make sure to ask following your treatment.
- Swelling – This is one of the most common side effects of dermal fillers as a small needle is injected into the face to deliver the filler. Though most significant when dermal fillers are injected into the lips, the swelling can last up to 72 hours.
- Asymmetry – This is not as common as the others, but it can happen. This is fixed by enzyme injections or additional touch-up fillers.
During your primary consultation, Dr. Caughlin will conduct a thorough examination of the areas you want to improve and discuss the main goals you aim to achieve. This will help Dr. Caughlin determine which type of dermal filler is best for your specific needs, how many treatments you will require, and the optimal injection site to treat your condition. He will discuss the treatment in detail with you, and when you give the ultimate ok, the procedure will begin. Ultra-fine needles will be used to administer the filler into the designated areas. To reduce any discomfort, a numbing agent may be placed on the area that is being treated.
Most patients are able to return to normal activities moments after the injection. The time it takes to get results depends on the area that is being treated and how many injections have to be administered. Most fillers produce results almost immediately, while others may take some time to reach their full potential. Dermal fillers provided at Many Faces of Chicago are the best on the market and can last anywhere between 6 and twelve months.

Should you inject dermal fillers at home, you are risking not only cosmetic problems but injuries to your overall health. Trust in the professionals at Many Faces of Chicago to properly evaluate the ideal dermal filler for you and let them professionally inject them.
