Dermal Fillers


Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA

One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to give your appearance a rejuvenating boost is by means of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. Dermal fillers can help you hold off on more invasive procedures when you first begin to see such things as crows’ feet, laugh lines, and other visible signs of the aging process.

Our best in Newport Beach Injectables provide a safe, minimally-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery, producing dramatic results that can last for months to a year or more. Dermal injections provide the best results when administered by a skilled medical professional, and best of all, by an experienced plastic surgeon who fully understands the underlying structures of the facial features.

One such doctor is the highly renowned, triple-board-certified Dr. Douglas Hendricks, whose practice at Pacifica Cosmetic Surgery Center in Newport Beach, California provides state-of-the-art cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, including non-surgical treatments such as dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections.

Dermal Fillers Newport Beach

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers in Newport Beach are injectable treatments that are formulated to produce smoother skin tone and texture, diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and add fullness and volume to specific areas.

Most formulas contain natural ingredients such as plant-based Hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that our body produces abundantly during youth, but produces far less as we grow older. Dermal fillers are also used to enhance your natural features or to bring your features into greater harmony and balance. For example, you may wish to enhance the brow and lip area to offset a nose that is too large or rejuvenate the lower face by increasing definition in the chin and jawline using dermal fillers.

What Is the Difference Between Dermal Fillers and Anti-wrinkle Injections?

Although similar to dermal fillers in their ability to fill in wrinkles and lines and improve the tone and texture of the skin, anti-wrinkle injections are formulas that contain botulinum toxin as their primary active ingredients, such as Botox, Xeomin, and several others.

Botulinum-based anti-wrinkle injections are effective at smoothing out and filling in dynamic wrinkles, or fine lines caused by underlying muscular contractions. Botulinum toxin is a safe but powerful neurotoxin that causes localized muscle relaxation for periods lasting as long as several months. The botulinum injection prevents the underlying muscle contractions that produce deep lines and wrinkles in the skin. When injected directly into overactive muscles, the botulinum toxin helps reduce the formation of wrinkles by relaxing those muscles. Eventually, over time, those wrinkles begin to fade away as the underlying contractions cease to produce them. By subtly reducing muscular contractions, botulinum injections help to prevent further development of wrinkles and static lines on the face.

Anti-wrinkle injectables such as Botox and other neurotoxin-based formulas are most commonly used to treat the upper face, such as lines in the forehead, as well as frown lines and crows feet at the corners of the eyes. But these powerful muscle controllers can be used to assist with multiple other concerns, such as reducing an excessively gummy smile, producing a more angular shape in the jawline, and even preventing such problems as teeth grinding and excessive perspiration. These treatments usually last for several months, with fewer follow-up treatments required over longer periods. You may also combine dermal fillers with anti-wrinkle injections to achieve a refreshing new look without surgery.

What Are the Results of Dermal Fillers?

The uses of dermal injections are widely varied. Dermal injections such as Voluma and Sculptra can enhance your natural features by adding fullness and volume to areas such as the cheekbones and lips. Anti-wrinkle injections such as Botox® can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while also preventing further development of lines and wrinkles. Injectable treatments may also be used to complement other cosmetic procedures to achieve a more comprehensive makeover. In short, almost anyone who wants to improve their skin’s tone and texture, enhance certain facial features by adding fullness and volume, or smooth out annoying lines and wrinkles may benefit from dermal filler or anti-wrinkle injections.

Types of Dermal Fillers

There are a number of dermal filler formulas, all of which achieve different results, and these may be combined in order to produce a customized facial makeover that addresses your individual concerns. Among the top Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are the renowned Juvederm line of fillers, the highly recommended Restylane line, and newer formulations such as Prevelle Silk. Other fillers may use formulas that center other ingredients to produce specific results. For example, Radiesse is a dermal filler that uses calcium hydroxyapatite, a substance naturally found in the bones and the teeth, to fill in areas of the face and hands by stimulating natural collagen production, providing gradual, long-lasting improvements.

Another effective collagen-based injectable filler is Sculptra, which also replaces lost collagen by triggering gradual collagen production, supporting cell and tissue renewal, and smoothing out lines and wrinkles. The dermal fillers that produce the longest-lasting results are Juvederm Voluma, Radiesse, and Sculptra, with results that can last as long as two years. Dermal fillers have gained widespread popularity among men and women patients because they provide a safe, effective, and inexpensive treatment for superficial lines and wrinkles, increasing the skin’s hydration, and producing refreshed, healthy-looking skin.
