Botox® & Fillers
Santa Ana Skin Care Clinic is pleased to offer our patients BOTOX® Cosmetic, which provide a fast solution for erasing facial wrinkles, lines, and furrows.
BOTOX® cosmetic injections temporarily minimize the muscle movements underneath the skin to make wrinkles less apparent. This wrinkle reducer can take years off your appearance by creating a relaxed and refreshed look. For a more dramatic effect, combine BOTOX with our cosmetic dermal fillers.
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 and migraines are relieved as the muscles relax. Botox also treats hyperhidrosis, 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. These therapeutic indications are performed in our offices as cosmetic treatments, which are not reimbursable by insurance.
JUVÉDERM XC® Ultra Plus XC is the latest dermal filler advance from Allergan. This "next generation" smooth gel is a hyaluronic acid 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 first 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.
Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to two years, in patients over the age of 21. 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. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.
What else should you know about JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC?
- First and only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area, resulting in a subtle lift
- Clinically proven to last up to 2 years with optimal treatment
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is from the makers of the #1 family of fillers
Vollure XC is part of the Juvederm collection of hyaluronic acid facial fillers, primarily used for smoothing severe facial wrinkles and folds, primarily nasolabial folds. These fillers use Vycross technology, which blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to deliver results that last up to 18 months.
If you have been looking for a natural-looking and feeling lip filler to enhance the fullness of your lips and reduce lines around the mouth, look no further! Volbella XC is the latest FDA-approved injectable added to the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers. This non-surgical lip augmentation treatment is designed to plump the lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, also known as perioral rhytids or perioral lines.
Volbella is a dermal filler used to define lips and for the correction of fine wrinkles around the lips. This temporary filler is made of hyaluronic acid and does not require a skin test before your injections. The smaller hyaluronic acid particle size in Volbella allows your cosmetic injector to treat fine lines without getting a full look in these delicate areas.
Volbella is the perfect product to choose for small fine lines and subtle enhancement of the lips. The smaller particle size allows for the correction of these fine areas without the worry that your lips will get bulky or too puffy. Volbella uses Vycross technology, and has been proven to soften and fill lines in most patients for about one year. Since Volbella is also formulated with hyaluronic acid, it helps the skin retain moisture and softness, ensuring long-lasting results.
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 FDA in October 2006. In clinical testing, Bellafill® was just as safe as the control temporary filler. It is indicated by the FDA to last up to five years!
Bellafill® is a simple, in-office procedure that takes about a half hour 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. Our office requires a skin test for Bellafill® treatment, simply to determine if there is any allergy to Bovine Collagen, or which Bellafill® is partially formulated.
