Holiday Cash Back

I love the holidays; the food and aromas, the beautiful decorations, the social events, and the time with my family but it can also be so exhausting!  We tend to spread ourselves way too thin, taking care of everyone but ourselves. The next thing you know, you find yourself staring in the mirror, looking worn-out, trying to wish away dull skin, forehead lines, deep grooves between the eye brows or lines around the eyes just in time to walk into your next holiday gathering looking fabulous and radiant, as though you are not completely frazzled! Sound familiar?

If you could be granted a wish this holiday season, would you choose to look radiant and refreshed at all of your holiday gatherings, or keep you’re hard earned cash instead?  Hummm – decisions, decisions, decisions…

At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Clinic, we don’t want you to have to choose.  This year Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Clinic is excited to announce that the manufacturers of Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane are offering impressive rebates to assure you look and feel you’re best this holiday season.

The manufacturers products that relax facial lines such as Botox or Dysport are offering rebates of up to $50.00 per treatment!  You can save up to $75.00 on dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Perlane, and Restylane to plump the skin and lips, erasing and filling lines around the mouth , nasolabial folds, marionette lines and adding volume where needed.  This adds up to an even bigger savings for those of you who are already receiving discounts with your Cosmetic Plastic Surgery VIP membership!

Unfortunately, these impressive rebates are time limited.   Starting now, you can schedule an appointment at Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Clinic in Savoy (217-359-7508) or Bloomington (309-662-0436) for Botox or Dysport, and / or a dermal filler to smooth out your skin and erase lines and wrinkles.  We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the details of these special rebate offers at the time of your call.

Dr. Castillo and his staff wish you a wonderful holiday season.

Real or Fake… You Decide

Monday, July 6th, 2009
We know that for decades long, full lashes have been a sign of higher beauty. So what makes those who tout lengthy, charming lashes leave a lasting imprint on the minds of so many? Think about it. If you were asked to name some of Hollywood’s leading ladies from the past, who would come to mind…Doris Day, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe. What do you remember about their beauty? It’s their eyes right? These American Beauties were seen all around, flaunting their graceful yet alluring lashes on the silver screen, in photos and magazines. It made them appear mysterious, desirable, and memorable.  What woman doesn’t want that? Sign me up!
Many would say that among other cosmetic enhancements, eyelash enhancement was born in Hollywood.   However, I think we can date it back a bit further than Hollywood. In the first century, Egyptians rubbed kohl on their lashes to draw attention to their eyes.
Beauty legend says that in 1916, D.W. Griffith, an American movie director created the first pair of false eyelashes. His desire was for his leading lady to have eyelashes that were so long that they would gently lay upon her cheeks as she blinked or looked down in thought.
Over the past few years, there has been a vast increase in the number of us “non-celebrities” who are now touting a set of false eyelashes on a daily basis. These days everyone wants to leave an impression.
Unfortunately, wearing false eyelashes is often easier said than done and expensive too. It can be a minimum of $30.00 per week with higher end lash extensions in upwards of $300.00 per application. The glue can leave your skin irritated, itchy and it can break down the skin over time. The trauma of wearing false eyelashes often results in a loss of your real lashes. It is time consuming as they typically have to be replaced every 1-2 weeks. By the time we care properly for our skin, apply our make-up, shave our legs, keep up with the latest hair trend, who has time to add another beauty step to their schedule?  Imagine speaking to a group of people, or sitting across an intimate table for two and one of your false lashes falls to the floor.  What now? I think buying “fake” may be a purchase better suited for your “Prada”.
That is where the genius discovery of Latisse comes in. Why walk around batting those false lashes when you can have the real thing? Latisse is sweeping the cosmetic industry by storm and putting smiles on the faces of women across the country. Best of all, it’s easy to use and results are seen as soon as 2 weeks!
Stop back as we will be discussing the easy application of Latisse and quotes from some of our patients who are currently using Latisse.

Restoring Your Eyelashes With Latisse

Friday, June 19th, 2009
When I look at my teenage daughters, I am constantly reminded of the amount of feminine character and beauty a full set of eyelashes provide. I see their lashes and think… “that used to be me. I would give anything to have my long lashes back.” I have heard several similar stories from patients who are suffering with eyelash / eyebrow loss.
Allergan Inc. introduced Latisse (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution .3%) late 2008. It is the first and ONLY FDA-approved treatment for inadequate eyelashes. Latisse is a prescription treatment used to increase the length and thickness of your eyelashes, as well as darken them.
Over past few years, a few other non-prescription (over-the-counter eyelash treatments were developed. The results were disappointing. So I must admit, at first I was very caution about bringing Latisse into the office. After all, we want only the best for our patients and it is our job to make sure that’s exactly what they get. Once I completed further research on Latisse / bimatoprost, reviewed the clinical trials on effectiveness and safety and talked in dept with Dr. Castillo, I became more confident that Latisse was indeed a good product.
Interestingly, the effect that bimatoprost has on lash growth was discovered through the treatment of patients with Glaucoma. Ophthalmologists noted a side effect of using bimatoprost for the treatment of glaucoma was increased eyelash growth. Patients had to trim their eyelashes because their lashes were hitting their glasses! Can you imagine?
When I was a teenager, I shared my eyeliner with a friend. That was a huge life lesson for me. Both of my eyes became infected. I lost the majority of my eyelashes. In time, some of my lashes grew back. However, they were never the same. My once long, full set of lashes, were at best, stubby and sparse. I began using Latisse three and a half weeks ago. At the end of the second week, I began to notice improved lash length. It is increasing steadily.
Dr. Castillo has been prescribing Latisse in both the Central Illinois offices (Savoy –Champaign Urbana area and Bloomington) since the beginning of this year. Our patients are so thrilled with their results. It’s fun to see them walk into the office, batting their new found lashes with such pride. Truly, nothing says “I feel like a women,” like a full set of lashes and a smile.
Typically patients begin to see changes within 2-4 weeks. Within 2 months patients see a significant improvement. After witnessing the type of results our patients are experiencing, I have a feeling the days of wishing I had lashes as long as daughters are numbered.
We are exceptionally impressed with the quick response and results from this new eyelash treatment. I would encourage anyone, male or female, who suffers from lack of lashes to try this remarkable solution.
Even though Latisse must be prescribed by a physician, we are able to carry it in our office. That means there is no second stop at the pharmacy after you leave our office. You will be able to take Latisse home with you that day.
