Juvederm®, Restylane® & Belotero Balance®
Juvederm®, Restylane® and Belotero Balance® are hyaluronic-acid based dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a normal part of human skin and therefore has an extremely low risk of allergy. At Newport Beach Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, we only use hyaluronic-acid based dermal fillers as the safety of our patients is our number one priority.
Dermal fillers ‘plump’ the skin by restoring volume that has been lost due to the aging process. Injection of dermal fillers was originally developed for the nasolabial folds, or “parenthesis” around the mouth. However, they can be used in a variety of other locations: for shaping the cheek bones, filling chin depressions, nose contouring, “sunken-in” temples, and deep lines between the eyes (in combination with Botox). In fact, these facial locations often obtain the most natural and long-lasting results with dermal fillers.
They are injected by Dr. McNeill, Dr. Rosing and Jennifer Moller, PA-C. Dermal fillers cost $600 per 1mL vial, and $900 for a 2mL vial of Restylane. Most patients require 1 or 2mL for the nasolabial folds or lips or chin. Treatment of cheeks or temples may require 3 or 4mL. Most treatments last between 9 months – 1 year or longer.
If you are scheduled for an injection, taking Motrin, ibuprofen, aspirin, naproxen or other NSAIDS may increase your chance of bruising. If OK with your doctor, refrain from taking these medications for 1 week prior to any injectable procedure.
Newport Beach Dermatology is recognized by Allergan, the makers of Botox, Juvederm and Voluma as a Black Diamond Provider which is the highest achievable recognition given to healthcare providers.
