What Are Injectables and Fillers?
Injectables and fillers are popular non-surgical treatments used to reduce wrinkles, plump lips, improve the appearance of scars or depressions in the face, and add volume to areas that have lost definition over time. They can also help with restoring facial symmetry and balance. We offer a range of injectables at our practice, each using a non-surgical approach to deliver tailored results that patients love. These treatment options are ideal for patients who want to see a cosmetic boost without undergoing a full surgery or committing to permanent results. Our practice provides several options, with each injectable having the ability to provide reliable results.
Injectables and Fillers Treatment Overview
At Chicago Oculofacial Consultants, injectables and fillers are administered by our experienced eyelid surgeons. Each patient is evaluated to determine which injectable or filler will provide the optimal results with little to no downtime. During treatment, the injectable or filler is administered through a small needle into various areas of the face. Once injected, results can generally last anywhere from three months to one year, with touch-up treatments needed as time goes on.
Our injectables and fillers include:
- Botox – Softens wrinkles around the brows and crows feet
- Juvederm – Plumps lips and adds volume to sunken areas of the face
- Radiesse – Fills in wrinkles and adds structure to areas with loss of volume
- Restylane – Corrects hollows, folds, lifts cheeks, and augments lips
- Sculptra – Stimulates collagen production for a natural-looking lift
At Chicago Oculofacial Consultants, we understand that injectables and fillers are about more than just making you look good, but rather feeling confident and comfortable with your own appearance. Our injectables portfolio provides several treatment options to help restore a youthful glow and improve facial balance. Contact us today to learn more about injectables and fillers in Chicago!

Am I a Candidate for Treatment?
Injectables and fillers are becoming increasingly popular among patients who want a beautiful, natural look without resorting to invasive procedures. Fortunately, injectables are open to a wide range of patients. To determine if you may benefit from injectable or filler treatments in Chicago, you can schedule an appointment for a consultation with our experienced eyelid surgeon, Dr. Williams. During your consultation, she will discuss your goals and situation to then recommend the ideal treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.
After the Treatment: Recovery
Injectables and fillers require minimal downtime, allowing you to return to your everyday activities almost immediately. After treatment, we recommend avoiding strenuous activity for at least 24 hours to ensure proper healing and to avoid irritating the injection sites. In addition, it is important to keep the injectable area clean and avoid direct exposure to sun or heat for 48 hours after treatment. However, patients rarely need any real downtime and often can return to work or most of their daily routines on the same day as their treatment.
After the Treatment: Results
For most injectables, you can see almost immediate results that last for months or beyond. Results vary based on the injectable or filler used, with most results lasting anywhere from three months to one full year. As injectables and fillers wear off, patients may require touch-up treatments every few months to maintain their desired appearance. However, many patients enjoy this aspect, as it allows them to enjoy cosmetic benefits without the permanent commitment that a surgery would require. And they can adjust their treatment to try out different aesthetic approaches to really bring out the best of their natural appearance.
