What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectables that are administered to specific areas of the face under topical anesthesia. Dr. Sundine performs the procedure at his office, with treatment time lasting about 30 to 45 minutes. Dermal fillers can be administered in the lip area to add volume to the lips. They can also be used to fill in hollow cheeks, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and nasolabial folds. Essentially, any area that needs to be filled in or needs volume can be treated with dermal fillers, including scars.

Hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are excellent for lip augmentation and treatment of nasolabial creases, marionette lines, and fine lines and wrinkles. Hydroxyapatite fillers like Radiesse provide a longer-lasting treatment for nasolabial creases but are inappropriate for the lips. Fat transfer is an excellent technique using a patient’s tissue that provides long-term results for lip augmentation, improvement in facial contour, and treatment of deep facial lines and creases.

Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility, and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines, and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.

Who is a Candidate

For Dermal Fillers?

If you have minor facial wrinkles and lines affecting any area of the face, you are a good candidate for dermal fillers. After discussing your concerns and taking a look at your face, Dr. Sundine will help you decide which type of filler will deliver the best and most lasting results. Most dermal fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that minimizes the risk of allergic reactions.

What’s The First Step?

The first step to receiving Dermal Fillers in the Orange County area is contacting the office of Michael J. Sundine and scheduling a consultation. During this time, you will be able to speak with Dr. Sundine and address your concerns and desired outcome from this procedure. You will also be able to learn more about the Dermal Filler technique and get an accurate cost for your entire experience. Once you and Dr. Sundine agree on which filler you should get, he will create your custom treatment plan, and you will be able to receive your dermal fillers or reschedule for another day with our Patient Coordinator.

What to Expect on the Day of Dermal Fillers

When you come in for your Dermal Fillers, our provider will begin by cleaning the area being treated and applying a topical anesthetic to numb the area before injection for a comfortable experience. Some filler products also contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, which will also minimize discomfort.

Then, using a very thin needle, the filler will be injected into strategic areas to fill out the desired location(s) that was discussed during your consultation. Dr. Sundine will take his time to ensure that each treated area is injected, massaged, and evaluated thoroughly. If needed, an additional filler may be used to achieve your desired results.

Depending on your personalized treatment plan, the process can range from 15 to 60 minutes.

Facial injectables are minimally invasive and do not require any downtime. You will not need to take any time off work or change your daily routine. After being injected, you may feel some soreness and/or bruising but only for about 24 to 48 hours. Different types of dermal fillers will deliver results at different times. Some patients see results right away, while for others it takes a few days until full results are evident. Dr. Sundine will thoroughly educate you on what to expect and when. The longevity of your results will also depend on the specific dermal filler. If you wish to maintain the aesthetic benefits that you have achieved with Dr. Sundine, you can have repeat treatments.

Real Reviews

What I really like about Dr. Sundine is his vast experience and training. I also like the fact he did not try to sell me other procedures. He is also very down to earth and easy to talk to. I am very satisfied with the results and I highly recommend him.

After much research and multiple visits to other surgeons, I knew right away that Dr. Sundine was the perfect choice for me. I felt completely confident in his ability from the first visit to the last. I have been singing his praises to all of my friends and will recommend him to anyone searching for a plastic surgeon. Thanks, Dr. Sundine

Dr. Sundine is an excellent plastic surgeon! I have been using his services for almost 5 years. If you want to look years younger and fully refreshed I highly recommend that you use his services. Patients walk out looking naturally gorgeous, not overdone like some of the women in Orange County!

Dr. Sundine is the best plastic surgeon. Dr. Sundine’s excellent skills and knowledge has made my surgery turn out so well. But more importantly, it made me feel better about myself. Again, thank you Dr. Sundine for all you have done for me. You are the best surgeon!

I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad facelift or even for people to notice I had a facelift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine.
