Facial procedures and spa treatments for the face and neck
Enhance the appearance of your face and neck with these simple procedures and medical spa treatments.
The face is the first thing people look at when they meet you, and the first impression you make when walking into a room. Studies show that over 50% of the time spent looking at pictures of other humans is spent on the face.
Gravity and aging can take their tolls on our faces over time, that’s no secret. Chicago Cosmetic Institute offers many solutions.
If your features are changing and making you feel bad about yourself, give us a call. You would be surprised at some of the options we have. Many facial procedures offered at CCI are non-invasive and require little to no downtime. See below for the featured facial procedures offered by Chicago Cosmetic Institute:

Improving your youthfulness and vision
A Brow Lift, also called a forehead lift, raises sagging brows that create hooding of the upper eyelids, reduces wrinkle lines across the forehead and between the eyebrows, and creates a more alert and youthful appearance. Sagging eyes can also lead to decreased vision.
The endoscopic brow lift allows us to improve your appearance with a minimally invasive, endoscopic procedure.
Removing wrinkles and restoring youth to the face
Facelift or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that improves and eliminates visible signs of aging in the face and neck, from sagging to wrinkles, jowls to loose or relaxed skin. If you are experiencing these issues and it is beginning to hurt your self-confidence, a facelift may be right for you.
Genetics, sun exposure, gravity, and things like smoking can all contribute to the aging of the face. These changes are best treated with a facelift.
Cheek and Lip Fillers
Through the use of injectable fillers like Juvederm Voluma and Restylane we are able to enhance the appearance of cheekbones and lips to bring volume back to facial areas where loss has occurred due to aging and lifestyle.
If you have issues with facial volume loss after weight loss, illness, or naturally through aging, lip fillers and cheek fillers may be a good fit for you.
Minimally invasive, majorly effective
Cheek lift, or “midface lift” procedures will move facial skin to enhance cheeks, under-eye fullness, and natural contouring of the face. Under eye puffiness, indentations of the upper cheek, and prominent nasal folds can be corrected with a cheek lift. This procedure is minimally invasive and uses the “percutaneous suspension” to achieve results. Many of the same issues treated by a full facelift can also be treated with a more simple, less invasive cheek lift.
Rhinoplasty is a procedure to reshape the nose and bring back form as desired or function as needed. Eliminating a bump or crook in the nose can make a drastic difference with little effort. From the size of the tip to the width of the bridge and profile of the nostrils, there is small incision designed for the area that needs editing.
Bring balance to the face
Facial Implants are more prominent in the plastic surgery industry than ever before due to modern improvements. Compared to injectable fillers, implants are preferred because they are permanent and require less upkeep. Facial implants are made from solid materials like silicone, which are compatible with human tissue.
Otoplasty Chicago: improving the appearance of the ears
Otoplasty (ear surgery) can improve the shape, position, and proportion of the ears. Protruding ears are common. Fortunately, there are many trained specialists who can perform these procedures to help you correct the issue.
What is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty is a procedure designed to improve appearance and shape of the ears. Patients who come to us for this surgery have misshapen, oversized, or protruding ears that are causing a lack of self-esteem. This reconstructive surgery can improve on all the aesthetic imperfections of the ear, from genetic defects to unnatural shape due to injury.
Earlobe surgery is one of the more common types of cosmetic surgeries that we perform on the ears. Generally, this is done to correct earlobe stretching. By making a small incision and removing a slice of the earlobe, we can move it into a more natural shape.
Reduce the appearance of scar tissue without surgery
Scar revision surgery can minimize the appearance of a scar that remains after a wound is healed using techniques that blend it with the surrounding skin. Treatments can help clients who have been wounded, have acne scarring left behind, mole removal scars, and many other issues. Treatment is minimally invasive and requires very little healing.
Light therapy and IPL for the skin
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. It is a form of light therapy with many different applications. This treatment can be used for dermatological procedures like hair removal. Hair removal tends to be the most popular application of IPL at Chicago Cosmetic Institute. Facial hair removal and any other small spots of unwanted hair are easily removed with IPL treatments.
IPL is able to treat skin as well using
Clear skin without medication
Acne facials performed at CCI by our Medical Spa staff help to clean the skin in a safe way that won’t spread acne or lead to scarring. When handled improperly, popping whiteheads can spread the affected area of acne on the face and in other areas of the body. Having a professional acne facial by a licensed aesthetician allows for the skin to be treated in a sanitary way by a trained specialist.
PRP Platelet Rich Plasma Injections
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a treatment where plasma from your body is extracted and reintroduced to promote the body’s natural ability to heal, rejuvenate skin, and even stimulate hair growth.
