WHAT ARE COSMETIC INJECTIONS?
With all of the innovations being made in the aesthetic industry, more and more patients are turning to nonsurgical solutions and minimally invasive treatments to enhance their appearance. By far, some of the most popular cosmetic treatments are cosmetic injections. At White Pearl Med Spa, cosmetic injections fall into two categories:
- Wrinkle relaxers (like BOTOX® and XEOMIN®)
- Dermal fillers (like JUVÉDERM® and Revanesse® Versa™)
Using just one or a combination of these treatments can produce a more youthful appearance, improve volume throughout the face, or enhance certain features, especially the lips. Men and women of many ages receive cosmetic injections at our office in Des Plaines, IL.
"I am a very satisfied client! Before I decided to have 360 Lipo with Pearl Med Spa, I had two other options SculpSure heat treatments and AirSculpt. By far this 360 Tumescent Liposuction was the best decision I made. The staff and Dr. Phillip Conrardy were very attentive to my needs. They made me feel comfortable and addressed all my questions with the highest level of professionalism. Not only was I treated with a lot of patience and compassion...I was blown away with how affordable they made this procedure! I am 4 weeks post operation, and I look and feel great! I am happy to recommend this procedure to any of my friends or family looking to enhance their self esteem."- W.B. / Google / Jan 15, 2022

What are the benefits of cosmetic injections?
Fine lines and wrinkles are a common concern among men and women. Cosmetic injections can temporarily smooth away these imperfections for a more youthful appearance. Patients especially love that treatments are nonsurgical and have little to no downtime. Additional benefits include:
- Safe: Wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers both have a long and successful track record for being safe.
- Customizable: There are many different types of injectables available. This allows us to tailor treatments specifically for you.
- Affordable: Injections are an affordable option when compared to other procedures like surgery.
- Effective: Many patients see results after just one treatment. Additionally, treatments can be repeated as needed to maintain results.
Am I A Candidate For Cosmetic Injections?
The ideal candidates for cosmetic injection treatments are those looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines without undergoing a surgical facelift. Men and women wanting to enhance their facial features or reduce the formation of new lines and wrinkles are also great candidates. In most circumstances, those with significant signs of aging or who have recently lost a significant amount of weight may have areas on their face that are sunken and shapeless. They are also a great option for people who do not want to risk the scarring that can result from a surgical facelift.
HOW DO wrinkle relaxers and DERMAL FILLERS WORK?
BOTOX and XEOMIN are injectable treatments that temporarily weaken muscle contraction. When injected, it will soften expression lines and wrinkles. Wrinkle relaxers are most often used to treat Crow's feet, frown lines, glabella (lines between brows), and horizontal forehead lines. You may be a candidate for BOTOX and XEOMIN if you have lines or wrinkles between your eyebrows, on your forehead, or near the sides of your eyes (Crow's feet). Your provider will speak with you about your injectable options to determine if these are the best option for you.
Meanwhile, fillers are used to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and facial folds (especially nasolabial folds) and to replenish lost facial volume. The lips, cheeks, jawline, chin, and under-eye area are the most common areas for treatment. We offer various JUVÉDERM and Revanesse Versa formulas.
Revanesse Versa is the latest HA (hyaluronic acid) dermal filler to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Revanesse Versa's unique formulation gives you spectacular outcomes with less swelling, more safety, and results that are immediate and long-lasting.
Dermal fillers are great for depressions, scars, lines, wrinkles, and hollows. As with all cosmetic injections, we recommend patients avoid taking any blood thinners to lessen the risk of bruising. If you are on blood thinners, take Arnica before coming in for your appointment.
Cosmetic injections FAQs
Are cosmetic injections safe?
Yes, cosmetic injections are safe when performed by a qualified and experienced professional. There are always risks associated with any medical procedure, but the risks of serious complications from wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers are generally low. The most common side effects are temporary and typically resolve within a few days or weeks.
Will I have natural results?
White Pearl Med Spa will always aim to give you natural-looking results. Our team never wants you to look “fake” or like you had work done. We will discuss your goals and desired outcomes during a consultation to ensure that we are on the same page.
How do I prepare for cosmetic injectables?
Our experienced injectors in Des Plaines, IL, can provide information on preparing for your appointment. In general, it is best to avoid blood-thinning medications (such as aspirin) before treatment as these increase your risk of bleeding and bruising. You should also avoid alcohol as it can also thin your blood.
