Botox Injections North Center Chicago
Botox is a safe way to reduce lines and wrinkles on the face without surgery. This procedure is the standard among cosmetic treatments for refreshing the face. Unlike a face lift, Botox is painless and results are fast with no down time.
Botox has very little recovery time. It’s possible to have injections before an important event. There are no worries of swelling or discoloration. While the results are temporary; patients can repeat the procedure every few months.
Botox gives the skin a fresh, youthful appearance only possible with smooth skin. We have professional staff who will take the time to explain Botox treatments to you. We consult with you to discover if this is the best treatment option for what you are trying to accomplish.
What is Botox? How does Botox Work?
Botox is a drug made from the botulinum toxin. It treats excessive sweating, migraines, muscular disorders, and some bladder and bowel disorders. The drug numbs muscles in the targeted area of the body. This stops over contraction and loosens the skin above the muscle group. The cosmetic benefits of the drug were noticed as a side effect of medical treatment. Now Botox is the world’s most popular dermal filler; treating millions of people each year.
The popularity of Botox as a cosmetic injection is due to its versatility and ease of use. A typical session only takes a few minutes. The drug is injected into the desired areas, and that’s it. The client leaves and will see results 3-5 days later. The effects will last up to a year, making it possible to try it without having to worry about it being permanent.
The toxins, or “tox” in Botox numb the muscles under the skin, relaxing it and alleviating wrinkles.
Is Botox Right for Me?
Are people telling you-you look tired, angry, or sad? Are you getting tired of it? No pun intended. What people are most likely seeing is the way time has had an effect on your skin. you could be showing signs of sleep loss due to stress at work or at home. You could also be showing wrinkles from smiling and laughing. It’s not always a bad thing!
Botox is a temporary fix to wrinkles. If you are looking for a minimally invasive injection with no downtime or healing necessary then Botox is your best option. There are many other more permanent procedures available. Many patients choose Botox because it’s easy and it isn’t permanent. If they don’t like the way it looks, they simply wait until the effects wear off.
Seeing a Difference with Dysport
Dysport is another injectable cosmetic, much like Botox. Dysport reduces the look of facial lines and wrinkles by alleviating muscle contractions under the skin. Without the tightening of the muscles, the wrinkling of the skin is reduced.
Dysport vs Botox: What’s the Difference?
Botox and Dysport are similar treatments. They both immobilize muscles under the skin that create wrinkles and other lines. There are a few differences between them, though.
Dysport can work within 1 to 3 days, While Botox usually sees results in 3 to 5 days. Dysport also diffuses more quickly, making it better for addressing crow’s feet and other wrinkle types that fan out over a larger area. The diffusion rate is the main difference.

I love Chicago Cosmetic Institute. Each time I visit everyone is so kind and welcoming. I see Lauren for Botox and she always takes the time to listen to my concerns. We have a conversation about what she thinks would work best for me and always gives me exactly what I want in the end. I recommended Lauren to all my friends and now they love her too. She does a great job and my Botox always looks so natural. Thank you, Lauren! ❤️
