While many think of aging as merely getting wrinkles, it is also associated with the loss of volume in the face. As skin loses elasticity and collagen with age, the underlying muscle, fat and even bone structure in the face also loses volume. Facial features once accentuated by fullness become marked by more severe grooves, hollows and thin skin. At Beverly Dermatology & Laser Center in Aliso Viejo, we are able to reverse many of these features of aging by restoring youthful volume and contours to the face. The newer volume-restoring fillers are the ideal way of achieving the desired result with minimal to no downtime and without the expense of surgery. Dr. Roland Beverly has been injecting wrinkle relaxers and soft tissue fillers for over 20 years, so feel confident that at Beverly Dermatology, you will be in the best hands!
With so many options for dermal fillers, it can be hard for you to know which one is best for your skin to achieve the results you desire. Come visit Beverly Dermatology & Laser in Orange County, CA and Dr. Beverly will discuss with you the best treatment plan for you so that you have the best possible results!
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
The most popular facial fillers are the hyaluronic acid (HA) group. HA occurs naturally in skin and forms building blocks that deplete as we get older. When injected into the skin the HA molecules bind water molecules, instantly resulting in a look that is soft and natural. HA fillers have a low risk of side effects and provide long lasting results (at least 6-12 months). Our current hyaluronic acid fillers are JUVÉDERM® XC, Restylane®,Perlane®, and BELOTERO BALANCE®.
We are excited to introduce JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, a new filler designed to replace volume lost in the cheek area!
For more information about which filler is for you, please schedule a consultation or appointment with Dr. Beverly. Dr. Beverly is an expert on the differences between the fillers and which one you need to achieve the results you wish.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is also a hyaluronic acid filler, but it is the first and only FDA-approved filler to add volume to the cheek area. As we age, loss of volume in the cheek area can significantly alter the look of the face, creating a face that sags and looks aged. VOLUMA™ replaces the volume that has been lost, giving your face a subtle lift and restoring a more youthful profile. Best of all, VOLUMA™ is clinically proven to last up to 2 years.

RADIESSE® is a volumizing filler comprised of injectable calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in a water based gel carrier. Calcium hydroxylapatite naturally occurs in the body and the synthetic form has been used for years in ear, vocal chord, dental and orthopedic applications. Similar to hyaluronic acid fillers, the effects of RADIESSE can be seen right away, but similar to Sculptra, RADIESSE stimulates your own natural collagen to grow. Your skin begins to regenerate its own collagen as the fillers diappears and creates a more permanent, nautral, youthful look. This collagen growth continues for several months after the initial injection, maintaining the effect of the RADIESSE treatment for a year or more.
