Dermal Fillers Newport Beach

Dermal Fillers are one of the most popular treatments that both men and women are using to rejuvenate their faces and turn back those unwanted signs of aging. There are a number of factors that can contribute to how, when, and where we age on our face. Repetitive muscle movements can cause creases and lines, sun damage and genetics can cause wrinkles and sagging and issues with skin tone and texture, and loss of volume in the face can create a “sunken in” appearance. Areas where there is a loss of volume, or perhaps where there has always been volume lacking, may benefit from dermal fillers. They work just like they sound they work–by filling in areas where there is a volume deficiency. This can mean filling in creases and wrinkles to create a smoother, more youthful appearance, but it can also mean enhancing the fullness of the lips or creating more definition in the cheekbones.

How does it work?

The application of dermal fillers is carried out by our experienced Newport Beach injectors in a series of quick, simple injections. Each course of treatment is tailored to the individual’s needs and objectives.

Dr. George Brennan will clean your face before starting your filler procedure, and he might also apply a little topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable. The actual injection itself just takes a few seconds to administer and uses a tiny, sterilized needle.

Depending on the significance of your surgery, you should plan to spend 15 minutes in the Newport Beach facility for your filler treatment.

What Sets Dermal Fillers Apart from Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Dermal Fillers

Anti-wrinkle injections are formulations that contain botulinum toxin as their main active components, such as Botox, Xeomin, and several others, and are similar to dermal fillers. One is an anti-wrinkle injection done so that the muscle doesn’t form a crease. It will enhance the tone and texture of the skin. One is an anti-wrinkle injection, done so that the muscle doesn’t form a crease.

Dynamic wrinkles, or fine lines brought on by underlying muscular contractions, can be effectively smoothed out and filled in with anti-wrinkle injections based on botulinum toxins. Botulinum toxin is a harmless but potent neurotoxin that relaxes regional muscles for up to several months at a time. Botulinum toxin injections stop the underlying muscle spasms that cause the skin’s deep lines and wrinkles. The botulinum toxin works by relaxing overactive muscles when it is injected directly into them, which helps to prevent wrinkle formation. These creases eventually start to disappear over time when the underlying contractions stop creating them. Botulinum toxin injections help to stop the progression of wrinkles and static lines on the face by subtly lowering muscle contractions.

The upper face, including forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes, are the most often treated areas with anti-wrinkle injectables like Botox and other neurotoxin-based formulations. However, these potent muscle controllers can also be utilized to help with a variety of other issues, such lessening an overly gummy smile, shaping the jawline to be more angular, and even stopping issues like teeth grinding and excessive sweating. Less follow-up care is needed over longer periods of time because these therapies typically persist for several months. Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections can also be combined to give you a revitalizing new look without surgery.

When should facial fillers be used?

Deep facial wrinkles can be effectively treated using injectable fillers, which are frequently used to address the creases that connect the corners of the lips and the nose (known as nasolabial folds, parentheses lines or laugh lines). Fillers are frequently utilized during plastic surgery at Newport Beach Center, to augment cheeks by repairing young face bloating or to plump lips by regaining volume lost as a result of aging.

Filler injections can be paired with additional med spa procedures like a chemical peel or BOTOX® injections. Additionally, they can be used to improve the outcomes of facial plastic surgery by Dr. George Brennan.

What does facial fillers recovery imply?

There is minimal recovery time needed for injectable fillers for the face. Typically, one or two days after receiving an injection, there may be some transient redness or swelling in the area of the injection. On rare occasions, a visible bruise may occur where the injection was made. This bruise may take five to seven days to completely vanish. Before important life or business events, you must properly organize and give yourself enough time to ensure a beautiful outcome.

Improvement and effects can be seen right away following therapy that can last anywhere between six months and two years, based on the filler brand used, as well as how rapidly your body breaks down the filler substance.

Who Qualifies for Dermal Fillers?

You are an excellent candidate for dermal fillers if you have light creases and lines on your face that don’t damage any particular area of your face. Dr. Brennan will assist you in selecting the filler that will produce the greatest and longest-lasting results after listening to your concerns and examining your face. The majority of dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and reduces the possibility of an adverse reaction.

How Long Are Dermal Fillers Effective?

Dermal fillers typically produce noticeable benefits for anywhere between 3 and 24 months, depending on the product utilized. Depending on your individual pace of aging and the area(s) of injection, each filler has a different lifespan. JUVÉDERM® fillers often degrade more quickly in parts of the face with more expressive facial folds than in areas with more static facial motion. Nevertheless, fillers can nevertheless offer all parts of the face somewhat long-lasting rejuvenation. Even though the results are only temporary, touch-up procedures can be used to maintain the appearance that dermal fillers were able to accomplish. This procedure can be combined with routine use of skincare products of the highest quality to keep the skin appearing fuller and younger for longer.

How Much Are Dermal Fillers?

The cost of JUVÉDERM® fillers is determined by the number of syringes required to address your issues. The cost of treating these regions may be significantly greater since enhancing the cheeks and/or lips often requires more filler compared to reducing fine lines and superficial wrinkles. However, this differs from patient to patient, so we can’t give you a precise pricing estimate until we fully understand your worries.
