BOTOX® Cosmetics can erase dynamic facial wrinkles without surgery. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by the overuse of some muscles of facial expression and appear as crow's feet at the corners of the eyes, furrows in the brow, or creases on the bridge of the nose.
A simple injection of this medication safely relaxes these muscles and dramatically eliminates crow's feet, worry lines, and smile lines. A remarkable transformation may be seen within a few days following treatment as lines vanish.
Results are a more rested, youthful appearance that can last four to six months before requiring a touch-up. Sometimes persistent tension headaches are relieved as the muscles relax. Botox also treats hyperhydrosis, which is a condition where the body produces excess sweat. Both men and women can enjoy the benefits of this painless, low-risk treatment that takes only a few minutes in the doctor's office.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is the latest dermal filler advance from Allergan. This "next generation" smooth gel is a non-animal-based dermal filler offering a natural look and feel and long-lasting results -- up to 12 months or longer. The XC refers to extra comfort, since it contains the numbing agent lidocaine.
JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC is longer lasting because it's the only dermal filler currently available with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid, and its special formulation creates a smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, creating a smooth, natural look. Other dermal fillers use a gel particle suspension formulation. These gel particles can be visibly seen under the skin's surface.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. JUVÉDERM injectable gel will help smooth moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about six months. Santa Ana Skin Care can also provide treatments using JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus, which does not have lidocaine, by patient request when the appointment is made.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area.

It's different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses.

Bellafill® is a permanent filler that is used for correcting deep nasolabial folds, which are among the initial signs of aging. This safe, simple procedure has immediate lasting results. Bellafill® is used to treat deep wrinkles, depressions under the eyes, depressed acne scars, as well as chicken pox scars. Bellafill® works in two ways: by providing instant volume and by creating a microscopic matrix that supports the body's own collagen production.
Bellafill® has proven to be a safe and effective dermal filler for the correction of wrinkles and was approved by the U.S. FDA in October 2006. In clinical testing, Bellafill® was as safe as the control temporary filler. It is indicated by the FDA to last up to 12 months.
Bellafill® is a simple, in-office procedure that takes approximately 30 (Thirty) minutes to complete. Bellafill® comes mixed with local anesthetic, so there is virtually no discomfort during the injection process. The effect of Bellafill® varies per individual. It depends on many factors, such as the structure of the skin, lifestyle, age, and on the degree of correction demanded by the individual.

Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane was the first cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body to provide volume and fullness to the skin). Because Restylane is non-animal-based and fully biocompatible, allergy testing is not required, as the risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction is removed.
The benefit of Restylane over collagen is the longer-lasting effectiveness of Restylane, which will last between 6 to 9 months, only requiring scheduling of twice a year. To learn more, call Dr. López and schedule a consultation today

Radiesse™ is an injectable filler that offers a non-surgical approach to shaping and contouring the face, reversing the common signs of aging or addressing a health issue that otherwise would require an invasive treatment. Aging, fat loss, and the pull of gravity eventually create noticeable changes in the area under the eyes, along the cheekbone, and down to the base of the jaw. That's where Radiesse can help.
Touted as a superior filler by physicians and patients alike, Radiesse’s unique composition provides immediate visual improvement common with other fillers, along with the benefit of long-lasting results. This is because Radiesse is made of tiny, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. These particles form a scaffold through which your body's own collagen grows, producing the desired long-term effect. These unique advantages make Radiesse the ideal choice for facial shaping and contouring, along with other therapeutic applications.
Radiesse can be used for:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Cheek augmentation
- Non-surgical rhinoplasty
- Jaw line
- Chin augmentation
