woman with green eyes holding her right cheek with her right handDo you have crow’s feet lines or frown lines between your eyebrows? If so, Dr. Otis Allen may recommend BOTOX® to improve the look of these lines and give you a more youthful, attractive appearance. BOTOX is a prescription medication that is injected into the muscles between the brows. These injections have been used for many years to effectively diminish lines and wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes. BOTOX is the only approved treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the brows, and millions of people have already experienced the excellent effects of this treatment. Join them in using BOTOX to enhance your appearance!

The BOTOX treatment involves simple injections and does not require any incisions or sutures. This means that you will not need any downtime to recover; in fact, most patients can resume their everyday activities almost immediately. BOTOX treatment is fast – sometimes completed in as little as 10-20 minutes! Our plastic surgeon and his caring team will make certain that you are comfortable throughout your treatment. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, and results can last up to 4 months.

As we age, we can develop wrinkles on our face and we can lose volume in our cheeks and lips, leading to an aged and tired appearance. Dr. Otis Allen is pleased to feature JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers at our practice. JUVÉDERM can help you achieve the beautiful, youthful appearance you desire, and we are happy to visit with you about your goals during your next visit to our office. Contact us today to learn more about JUVÉDERM in Bloomington, Illinois, and to schedule a consultation with our experienced plastic surgeon.

Our skin loses volume as we age due to normal changes in our body and lifestyle factors, and the facial skin is especially susceptible since it is almost always exposed to the sun or other harsh conditions. We can inject JUVÉDERM dermal fillers into the areas surrounding your nose and mouth to restore volume and the natural contours of your face, thereby smoothing out wrinkles and folds associated with aging. This results in a revitalized appearance that looks both youthful and more energized.

JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers can:

  • Plump thin lips
  • Improve the appearance of some scars
  • Improve facial contours
  • Soften facial wrinkles, creases and lines
    The results of dermal fillers can be seen very quickly and can last for up to a year after a single treatment. Call us today to schedule a treatment or consultation!


    While wrinkles are what we commonly think of as the definitive signs of aging, other skin changes can also make us look older. Our skin loses volume as we age, and in the face, this can result in cheeks that sag or look flat. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is specifically intended to restore volume to your facial skin in order to lift and enhance the cheek contours. The appearance of your entire face can be transformed with this dermal filler designed to provide volume!


    For more severe wrinkles and folds in the nasolabial area, we may recommend JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC. This powerful dermal filler can smooth out very deep wrinkles and lines, and even more exciting, it has the longest-lasting results of any other JUVÉDERM filler, up to 18 months. If you have moderate to severe lines and folds around your nose and mouth, ask us if JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC might be right for you.


    Your lips are an important component of your face that can also show signs of aging. The skin on your lips is more delicate than the skin on other parts of your face and so requires a dermal filler that is more pliable and not as thick. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can add volume to your lips and smooth out vertical lip lines without causing damage. Your lips can appear plumper and more even with just one JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC injection.


    Fat below the chin, often called a “double chin,” can make you look heavier than you really are. Even when you exercise and eat well, the extra fat below your chin sometimes stubbornly remains. KYBELLA®, an FDA-approved injectable solution, can destroy these excess fat cells. Your facial profile can be improved drastically with this advanced treatment option!
