Your Medicos, S.C. offers many different types of cosmetic injectables. Conveniently located in Buffalo Grove, Your Medicos uses only licensed physicians for injections such as Botox®, Dermal Fillers (Juvederm®, Radiesse and more), Kybella, NovaThreads and Platelet Rich Plasma. We also offer Microneedling. Based on patient needs, we often mix and match different procedures and injectables for layering together to achieve the best result.
Botox® is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe fine lines in people from 18 to 65 years of age. By limiting the movement that creates wrinkles, our skin is able to smooth itself out. Treatments consist of a few quick injections around the trouble areas with no downtime. Results may vary but the effects can last up to 4 months.
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle.
Dermal fillers are a remarkable and affordable way to smooth away wrinkles and fill in areas on the face where volume has been lost. There are many different types of dermal fillers on the market, a Your Medicos physician will help you choose the right combination for you.
Dermal fillers can be used to:
- Plump thin lips
- Enhance shallow contours
- Soften facial creases and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
We carry a variety of Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm®, Radiesse®, Belotero® and others, all with various uses. Let our medical professionals decide which one would FILL your needs.
KYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat in the body. Administered through a series of injections under the chin, KYBELLA™ effectively destroys fat cells, preventing the storage or accumulation of fat. For this reason, KYBELLA™ is considered a permanent, non-surgical treatment option.
Our medical professionals at Your Medicos will work with you to design a customized treatment plan to improve the profile of your neck and chin. Treatment sessions are spaced at least one month apart, with the majority of patients experiencing visible results after two to four months.
PRP Injections (Platelet Rich Plasma)
A procedure that has been used successfully for decades to treat spine and joint injuries is now becoming the treatment of choice by women and men on face and body to improve the appearance of skin and wrinkles. PRP therapy involves injection of the patients’ own platelets and fibrin for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles. Known to some as the “vampire facelift” it is less invasive than plastic surgery.
PRP treatments at Your Medicos can help rejuvenate your skin and eliminate dark circles and puffiness under your eyes or correct fine lines and wrinkles or droopy skin around your mouth, cheeks and/or eyes.
What are NovaThreads?
NovaThreads are a non-invasive treatment to help loose and sagging skin. A more detailed description is that they are absorbable surgical sutures composed of polydioxanone. These sutures have been used in cardiac surgeries for the past 60 years or more and are the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
During the treatment, a preloaded needle is inserted into the skin. A Your Medicos physician injector then leaves the thread beneath the skin when he removes the needle. Your skin gently reacts to the thread(s) and begins repairing itself around the suture. The threads can be expertly placed to stimulate collagen in areas of volume loss or fill a fold, and also can be placed to pull and tighten the skin, such as that of the neck or brows. Over the next 4-6 months, your skin fully absorbs the threads and they won’t leave behind scar tissue.
NovaThreads are a quick and easy way to get immediate results with long-term benefits.
- Natural results
- No surgery, no pain
- Lunchtime procedure
- Ideal for neck and jawline
NovaThreads can be used on their own as well as a great enhancement to fillers and Botox.
Your Medicos also offers microneedling. This century-old procedure renews the appearance and texture of skin without the downtime associated with more invasive rejuvenation techniques.
Improve your skin’s appearance – whether you have acne scars, wrinkles, or other sun-damaged skin, microneedling can produce smoother, younger-looking skin.
