Kybella® can help reduce fullness underneath the chin. Its commercial name is Deoxycholic Acid, a substance that helps the body break down fat during digestion. This fat-disrupting tendency has been recognized for many years.
Juvederm Voluma® is an injectible filler that is made of hyaluronic acid with a special structure that makes it firmer than other hyaluronic fillers. It is well-suited to restoring deep volume in the cheeks, temples, and other facial areas. Patients who undergo treatment with Voluma® at our Chicago and North Suburban locations benefit from Dr. John Q. Cook’s 15 year experience with facial volumization.
The single best correction from fillers occurs in the nasolabial fold, the depression between the cheek and upper lip that deepens as we age. Injectible fillers provide a framework beneath the fold and make the shadow that occurs there less visible.
Facial fillers used in a sensible way, almost always produce very happy patients. Pushed to extremes, however, some very peculiar things can happen.
