While neuromodulators address lines formed when the face is in motion, dermal fillers combat static lines, or those creases that form when the face is at rest. These wrinkles may result from gravity and the aging process, as well as from prolonged sun exposure. Fillers are ideal for correcting a loss of volume in the cheeks, temples, and lips, and can provide a more youthful, supple-looking countenance without downtime or discomfort.

What are Dermal Fillers? 

Dermal fillers in Orange County are a popular, non-surgical method of facial rejuvenation and enhancement. These injectables are administered precisely and carefully into various parts of the face or other areas of the body to replace lost volume, define the features, and smooth the skin. 

In addition to plumping and smoothing the skin, fillers can be used to provide a liquid facelift or non-surgical rhinoplasty. Dermal fillers are safe, highly effective, and non-invasive, and they provide a beautifully enhanced appearance and increased self-confidence.

*All filler patients must wait a minimum of 2 weeks before retreating or correction.

What can I Expect During my Treatment?  

Treatment with injectables typically takes fewer than 30 minutes to perform. Many dermal fillers are formulated with built-in lidocaine and are thus painless; however, your provider can apply a topical numbing solution to the skin prior to your treatment to ensure a stress-free, comfortable experience. Injections are then administered strategically at the previously agreed-upon points to help reduce the signs of aging and provide a smoother, more inviting countenance. One of the nicest aspects of dermal fillers is that they are non-invasive and non-surgical, meaning you can expect to return to your normal activities right away after your session.

What are my Facial Filler Options?

At South Coast Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of facial fillers to meet your aesthetic needs.

Volbella XC

Volbella XC is designed especially for the lips and the skin around the mouth. Volbella XC smooths away lines around the mouth, plumps the lips and lasts for up to one year.

Vollure XC

Vollure XC is used to soften and smooth deeper wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds (often called smile lines). The results last for up to 18 months.

Ultra Plus XC

The Ultra XC filler is primarily used to fill the lips and smooth the area around the lips. It can also be used almost anywhere on the face to smooth laugh lines, folds, deep wrinkles and fill the lips. Results last for one year.

Voluma XC

Voluma XC is a thicker filler that is designed to restore lost volume in the cheeks and other hollow areas. Voluma XC smooths away wrinkles and creates a smooth, youthfully plumper appearance. This filler can last for up to two years.


Sculptra is unique in that it is made from synthetic poly-L-lactic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body. Sculptra provides volume and fills hollows, and it diminishes facial creases. Sculptra triggers a major boost in the production of collagen. Collagen uses three treatment sessions to help the skin create more and more collagen. This produces long term results and volume that can last up to two years.


Radiesse is made with tiny spheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a naturally-occuring substance found in the body. Radiesse helps to stimulate the production of collagen, the natural protein that gives youthful skin its supple, full appearance.  Radiesse plumps deflated facial contours, smooths wrinkles and fills folds.

The RHA Collection

The RHA Collection is formulated to be as close to the natural hyaluronic acid already created in the body. Hyaluronic acid is the substance responsible for hydrated, supple, luminous skin, and it is the substance that most fillers are based on. RHA fillers are more exactly like natural hyaluronic acid, which allows them to treat dynamic wrinkles without causing the face to appear stiff or unnatural. RHA fillers are the only FDA-approved fillers to treat dynamic wrinkles. RHA fillers smooth fine lines, fill hollows and can also plump the lips.

What are the Benefits of Facial Fillers?

Facial fillers are among the most versatile cosmetic treatments. They can be used to fill in depressions, correct the appearance of scars, and enhance the facial contours, all without the anesthesia, incisions, scarring, or the higher risks of surgery. Facial fillers in Ladera Ranch & Irvine provide the following outstanding benefits:

Are there any Risks or Side Effects?

Because many fillers rely on the power of hyaluronic acid, a biocompatible compound, allergic reactions are quite rare. As with any cosmetic procedure, however, there are some inherent risks. These include bruising, swelling, tenderness, itching, and rash. Less common side effects may include asymmetry, temporary numbness, and a poor aesthetic outcome. Luckily, many filler treatments can be reversed.

Is there any Recovery after Dermal Fillers?

Most patients are able to immediately resume their normal routines after a dermal fillers session. Minor swelling, bruising, and tenderness only last a matter of hours or the rest of the day, after which they quickly fade. While there are few restrictions after dermal filler injections, it’s important to avoid vigorous exercise for a few days in order to allow the product to properly settle into place. You should also refrain from rubbing, touching, scratching, or disturbing the skin in any way, as this can cause the filler to migrate into unintended areas.

Facial balancing

Dermal fillers can be strategically injected to combat cosmetic concerns such as volume loss, asymmetry, and signs of aging. Facial balancing is a process customized to each individual. It uses a combination of injectables in various areas to improve the profile and achieve harmony among the features.

For example, fillers can enhance volume in the cheeks, temples, chin, jawline, and lips to create symmetry and facial equilibrium. Additionally, fillers can soften lines and wrinkles, providing a more youthful appearance. Facial balancing is minimally invasive and can help you to feel confident, refreshed, and invigorated.

Our popular Facial Balance Package allows you to buy any 4 syringes for a total of $2,900
 (estimated savings of $750). Note that additional syringes after the initial package will be $600 per syringe (usually priced at $750-$900).
