As we age, we lose collagen, hyaluronic acid, growth factors, and other beneficial elements. Fine lines and wrinkles show up on our face due to the loss of these important elements, along with exposure to UV light. Patient Preferred Dermatology's team of providers offers various dermal fillers in the Long Beach area, each with its unique properties to add lift and volume and eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles.
JUVEDERM® dermal fillers are injectable gels used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. They act like a liquid facelift.
As a dermal filler, a JUVEDERM® injection treats the lines from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth (nasolabial folds) and the corner of the mouth down toward the jawline (marionette lines), instantly filling in and smoothing out the wrinkles to create a smooth and natural look. It can also be used for enhancing the lips.
Results from this hyaluronic acid-based family of dermal fillers—JUVEDERM® Ultra, JUVEDERM® XC, and JUVEDERM® Ultra Plus XC, VOLLURE®, and VOLBELLA®—last approximately one year.
With JUVEDERM® dermal fillers, the injection process takes only about 15 minutes, and results are immediate. Since there is minimal recovery or downtime, you can step into our office for treatment and step right back into your life!
VOLUMA®, used for adding volume to the mid-face, is also a member of the JUVEDERM® line.
Restylane® is a dermal filler that instantly corrects fine, moderate, and severe facial wrinkles. The most common problems treated with Restylane® are marionette lines (extending from the jawline to the corners of the mouth) and nasolabial folds (from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth). Many Restylane® patients also request the filler to fill in their acne scars or hollows below the eyes and to enhance their lips. Results from this dermal filler are seen immediately. You can see the results for yourself by viewing our before and after photos.

Radiesse® is an FDA-approved calcium hydroxyapatite-based product. Different from hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, Radiesse® is made of unique calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural gel that stimulates the growth of your own collagen. The calcium-based microspheres gradually break down and are safely absorbed by your body while the newly formed collagen remains to support the skin. Radiesse does more than just temporarily fill in facial folds and wrinkles. By replenishing facial volume, it can restore your youthful appearance.
Results are immediate and last a year or longer in many patients.
BELOTERO® is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that instantly corrects fine facial lines. Compared to other HA fillers, BELOTERO® is light and elegant. In clinical studies, patients showed visible improvement nine months after a single treatment. BELOTERO® can be injected more superficially, making it the perfect solution for unwanted lip lines. As we age, the border of our lips diminishes and fine lines cause that annoying lipstick "bleed." This treatment instantly rejuvenates your lips. BELOTERO® can also improve nasolabial folds that run from the nose to the corner of the mouth, which can be the most noticeable of all lines of the face.
