Dermal Fillers

SoCal Eye and Dermal Fillers in Long Beach

Dermal Fillers or Fillers we originally developed by Ophthalmologists for ophthalmic purposes and have been a part of SoCal Eye’s practice for many years. In addition to the clinical applications, Fillers are now one of the Cosmetic Procedures performed by a skilled SoCal Eye doctor in our Los Alamitos and Long Beach office locations.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Fillers, such as RESTYLANE®,  PERLANE®, and JUVEDERM® are another antidote to aging. By replenishing lost facial volume, fillers provide a natural beauty lift. These products can:

  • Create fuller, younger-looking lips
  • Restore volume to your skin to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds
  • Diminish the visibility of scars
  • Last, on average, anywhere from three to six months

Dermal Fillers Before and After.

What happens to the fullness of our skin as we age?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our skin that provides fullness and elasticity. As this substance diminishes with time, the skin loses its volume, creating wrinkles and folds. Replenishing hyaluronic acid with Restylane® and Perlane® can revitalize the face and create a youthful look.

You have the power to influence your appearance

Restylane® and Perlane® provide rejuvenating cosmetic beauty treatments for a natural, younger-looking you. Restylane® is the world’s best-selling dermal filler. It is well tolerated, nonsurgical, and long lasting (up to six months). This dermal filler can be used almost anywhere that you want a fuller skin appearance.

Restylane® or Perlane®. What’s the difference?
Restylane® and Perlane® are both composed of hyaluronic acid. Perlane® has larger gel particles and is intended to be injected deeper within the skin. The denser formulation of Perlane® allows for added lift and fill, and is designed for more pronounced facial folds and wrinkles.

Postoperative Expectations and Care
Some bruising and swelling is normal after dermal filler injections. There may even be some “lumpiness” at treatment sites. This usually resolves within 1 week. In the meantime, avoid any type of facial massage for at least 48 hours after the procedure. Avoid exercise which increases your heart rate for 24-48 hours after procedure. Wash your face gently following procedure and apply make-up normally. Try to sleep on your back, if possible, for the two nights following your procedure.
