As we age, lines and wrinkles form as a result of muscle memory due to our typical facial expressions and exposure to the elements. At Ageless Medspa in Chicago, Dr. Sypien treats each patient’s unique problem area with a customized, targeted approach for optimum results.
Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) treatments can wipe away years of aging by relaxing often used facial muscles, resulting in smooth and wrinkle-free skin. The Botox® procedure is simple and virtually painless. Dr. Sypien is Board Certified physician with years of extensive training and experience, who have treated thousands of clients with great results. Dr Sypien performs Botox® Cosmetics treatment in as little as 10-30 minutes by way of tiny a injections so that discomfort is minimal. After a series of Botox® injections at our Chicago location, most patients see a marked improvement which can last up to 4 months. For those with more sensitive skin, our experienced professionals can numb the Botox® injection site prior to application for a pain-free beautifying experience.
In recent years, Botox® rose in popularity between men and women and has been used in conjunction with specific fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane to further enhance and prolong the rejuvenating effects.
Dysport® injections, along with being one of the most popular medical beauty treatments in Europe, are also a cost effective alternative to BOTOX® therapy and in some cases can provide longer lasting benefits depending on the desired results. The Dysport® procedure involves the use of fine micro injections directly to the problem area, creating muscle relaxation to treat facial frowns, wrinkles and fine lines. Dr. Sypien, MD feels that Dysport® is very effective and has fast onset of action on relatively new facial lines

Who is a good candidate for Botox® injections?
Tailored Botox® procedures are ideal for healthy women and men that desire to improve the appearance of their skin. Wrinkle treatments are not just for women; in fact, we find a greater number of men with the desire to look and feel younger by eliminating wrinkles and age lines through Botox® injections.
How long does the procedure take?
Dr. Sypien provides a thorough inspection of the problem area and targets a series of Botox® treatments to improve the appearance of the skin. After a thorough evaluation, typical Botox® procedures take between 10 and 30 minutes depending on the number of Botox® injections required to yield the optimum results.
Are Botox injections painful?
Our clinical expert takes great care to ensure your comfort and safety. We offer all of our patients a topical numbing agent to reduce pain in the injection area and most patients tell us they felt only minor discomfort if any during the procedure.
How long do the results of Botox last?
Botox® Cosmetics have been used for more than two decades to improve the appearance of the skin. Most patients experience the beautifying results of Botox® injections for 3-4 months; however some experience the results for up to 6 months.
Dysport® injection treatments are very similar to BOTOX® therapy, as both products utilize a derived protein to relax the targeted muscles that create wrinkles and fine lines. The Dysport® protein is slightly smaller so it provides the desired result a bit quicker than BOTOX®. Dysport® injections are administered in the same manner as BOTOX® injections and our experienced professionals will consult you as to which procedure is best for your particular skin type and problem areas.
