At Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center, our experienced aesthetic professionals provide two forms of injectables to achieve a variety of skin rejuvenation results. Dermal fillers and neuromodulators are both injectables that are used to enhance the face, but there are important differences between them. We educate patients in the Pinhole and Larkspur areas about each of these cosmetic injectables, so they have the chance to choose the injectable most appropriate for their aesthetic goals.

- Dermal fillers. Dermal fillers use naturally occurring substances such as hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite which help to restore lost volume in areas like the cheeks, lips, temples and jawline. When injected into the skin, these substances create a more youthful contour and can be used to plump up those problem areas where wrinkles have formed. Results from dermal filler injections can last from six months to two years, depending on the product used.
- Neuromodulators. Neuromodulators, most notably the varieties known as Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®, use a type of protein to temporarily paralyze facial muscles. This helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles caused by overactive facial muscles that create crow’s feet around the eyes or forehead lines. Results from neuromodulator injections can last up to three months before additional treatment is necessary.
Which One Is Right for Me?
Both forms of injectables are popular for achieving skin rejuvenation because they offer quick results with minimal downtime. The best way to determine which one is right for your individual needs is to consult with our team of aesthetic professionals, who will assess your goals and recommend the most effective approach for you. For some of our patients, Dr. Armen Serebrakian and his team may even recommend pairing these injectables for a “liquid facelift,” targeting several areas during a single appointment.
