Dermal Fillers Available in Laguna Beach
At Coast Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center, we have a wide range of dermal fillers available to address our clients’ needs. Voluma, Juvederm, Restylane, and Sculptra are injectables that produce outstanding results for many of our patients in Laguna Beach, CA.
Why You Should Choose Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers work to define natural facial contours, restore volume to your lips and cheeks and smooth away fine lines and facial creases, all without having to go under the knife. They offer natural results that can last for as long as a year.
Most dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural substance found in your skin. HA helps hydrate, add volume, and stabilize the skin.
Our Laguna Beach office offers the following dermal fillers:
What Dermal Fillers Can Treat
Dermal filler injections are the non-surgical, minimally-invasive technique that can address common signs of aging in the face and neck, such as:
- Undefined jawline
- Loss of volume and definition in the midface
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Marionette folds (found at the corners of the mouth)
- Lip lines/smoker lines
- Flat, thin lips
- Chin creases and wrinkles
The Results You Can Expect
You may be able to see your results immediately following your treatment, but these results may continue to develop for one to two weeks after your treatment session.
Results may last between 6 months and one year, depending on the filler used and the area treated. Your body will then slowly absorb the filler.
Our doctors can help create a customized treatment schedule so you can maintain your desired results. To learn more about dermal fillers, visit fda.gov.
Minimal Pain With Dermal Fillers
Most patients find dermal filler treatments to be very tolerable. Our expert dermatologists use very fine needles or blunt-tipped cannulas, and most fillers contain the anesthetic lidocaine to minimize pain during treatment.
You may also request a topical numbing cream or an ice pack if you are concerned about discomfort during your procedure.
At Coast Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center, neuromodulators are an excellent treatment option to create a smooth, youthful face by reducing unwanted facial wrinkles caused by expression.
Most commonly referred to by the product names, Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Jeuveau, are known as wrinkle relaxers and may be used on the face to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Wrinkle relaxers are most often used to treat the brow (glabella), forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), on the ridge of the nose (bunny lines), on the border of the lips (perioral wrinkles along the vermillion border), and neck (horizontal banding).
There is no downtime after the treatment and minimal discomfort and risk involved. It is the perfect treatment for those wanting a more youthful complexion without a significant disruption in their regular daily activities.
How to Choose A Wrinkle Relaxer
Wrinkle relaxers treat dynamic facial wrinkles and folds. During your consultation at Coast Dermatology, one of our doctors will assess your facial features, origins of your lines, and your aesthetic goals to recommend the best possible treatment plan for you. We offer:
The Kinds of Wrinkles You Can Treat
Neuromodulators can treat the following:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Brow lines
- Worry lines
- Wrinkles around or under the eyes
- Vertical lip lines
- Forehead lines
- Saggy brows
- Bunny lines of the nose
- Droopy lip corners
- Gummy smile
- Bulky Jaw
- Chin wrinkles or dimples
- Platysmal bands (neck bands)
How Neuromodulators Work
All of these aging symptoms are caused by repetitive contractions of specific muscles in the face and neck. Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau are each used to temporarily relax those muscles in the face.
This stops the muscle from being able to contract, which automatically smooths away the resulting wrinkles and folds.
Starting neuromodulator treatments early has been shown to minimize future wrinkles because your muscles become trained to relax and the wrinkles do not form as early.
How We Keep You Comfortable During Injections
Similar to dermal filler injections, we use very fine needles for neuromodulator injections, which helps to minimize pain. Most patients find that these injections are very tolerable.
If you are concerned about pain, please let us know, and we can provide an ice pack or topical numbing cream before administering the injections.
