Facial Rejuvenation & Migraine Treatment in Chicago

Let’s face it. As a society, many of us are trying to trick Mother Nature. If you’re one of the millions of people who are not looking to undergo invasive surgery or multiple procedures but you just want to look younger, more attractive and more rested, Botox® and/or Juvederm® may be your answer.

Contrary to popular opinion, Botox® does not work by paralyzing the muscle. Botox® works to relax muscles by preventing the production of a protein that causes the muscles to contract. This is why it’s common not to see results of Botox® injections until 1-2 weeks after the injection. The residual protein is dissipating over that time and no new protein will be fabricated, usually for a duration of about 3 months. Because of the fact that Botox® disappears over time, it is a safe procedure, as it’s not stored in the body for more than 3 months.

Juvederm® is a dermal filler and can be used to plump out thin or sagging tissue, fill in fine lines and enhance your smile makeover. Juvederm® restores Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in your skin. HA is a naturally hydrating substance that is plentiful in youthful skin. Over time, HA is reduced by sunlight and other factors. As HA decreases, your skin loses structure and volume, causing wrinkles, creases, and folds. Juvederm® is the first smooth-consistency HA gel and the only HA filler that’s FDA approved to last up to one year with only one treatment. What makes your treatment with Dr. Alfe unique is that Dr. Alfe will numb you before performing your injections. This allows your visit to be comfortable since you will not feel multiple injections. It also allows Dr. Alfe to work unhurried, taking the time necessary to evaluate and sculpt the filler to give you the most natural, youthful look with the least amount of material necessary.
