Chicagoans Divulge What They Really Spend on Injectable Wrinkle Reducers, Fillers, and More

How Chicago women budget for injectables

In the Windy City, where medical aesthetics treatments are thriving, injectables have become a ubiquitous piece of the puzzle. And, as we’ve found in Los Angeles, Nashville and Dallas, indulging in treatments throughout the year can require some careful budgeting. We’ve gone straight to the source to find out what Chicago-based women are paying for medical aesthetics, their most costly beauty habits, and how they really feel about injectables. 

Editor's Note

Injectable wrinkle reducers temporarily smooth the look of moderate to severe wrinkles in certain areas of the face, including the forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet; they should not be used more frequently than every three months. Injectable filler is a temporary treatment that adds volume to areas of the face such as the lips, cheeks, and laugh lines. Like any medical treatment, both injectable wrinkle reducers and injectable fillers have potential risks and side effects. Talk to a licensed provider to see if they’re right for you.
