For men and women struggling with the appearance of deep wrinkles and imperfections, injectables and dermal fillers offer quick and effective solutions. Injectables and fillers are excellent nonsurgical alternatives to more invasive treatments that support a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Depending on your needs, injectables and dermal fillers can be used alone or in combination to help restore facial volume, reduce fine lines, wrinkles and deep creases and enhance the lips and cheeks.
If moderate-to-severe lines have begun to form between your eyebrows, on your forehead or around your eyes, Western Ventura County BOTOX treatments may be right for you. Every year, millions of men and women choose BOTOX to help soften and/or erase lines for a smoother and younger-looking appearance.
As we get older, our skin begins to change. The amount of hyaluronic acid (HA) in the skin begins to diminish due to age, genetics, environmental factors and lifestyle habits. HA is a naturally hydrating substance and is our skin’s natural moisturizer.
When we lose the ability to create HA naturally, the skin becomes thinner and less plump, which leads to the appearance of wrinkles around the nose and mouth (the parentheses of the face).
Volume loss in the mid-face is very common as you grow older. When you have less volume and less plumpness in the cheeks, you can look older and tired. Our Pacifica Center providers offer a treatment that can restore a more youthful appearance using Voluma filler to return volume and plumpness to the face.

Injectable Fillers FAQs
How much do injectable filler treatments cost?
When it comes to dermal fillers, the cost is based on each syringe used. Typical treatments may use multiple syringes in order to achieve the desired results. Cost also depends on the dermal filler used. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates the average cost per syringe to be between $680 and $2,126 per syringe. Things such as the surgeon’s expertise and qualifications also play a role in determining the final cost, as well as the time the treatment takes and your geographical location.
How do I find the best plastic surgeon for injectable fillers near me?
While dermal injections may not seem like a complicated procedure, it takes specialized training and a good understanding of facial anatomy in order to understand what injections will work best, as well as the best locations for injections. Ask what qualifications your provider has and if you can see before and after photos of previous clients.
Will injectable filler treatments hurt?
Because dermal fillers are an injection, you may experience minor discomfort during the treatment and at the injection site. Topical anesthetics are often applied to the skin to reduce the discomfort of the needle. When the filler is injected, it can cause stretching to the skin, which can also cause some minor discomfort.
Are there any risks involved with injectable fillers?
Complications from dermal filler injections are rare but can happen. Risks will depend on the specific filler used and can include:
- Bruising and bleeding
- Skin wound or possible scarring
- Injection site infection
- Lumps or acne-like skin eruptions
- Skin rash with redness and itching
How long do injectable filler treatments take?
Injectable dermal fillers are a quick in-office procedure, with most treatments taking less than an hour.
Can I go right back to work after an injectable filler appointment?
Because there is no downtime with dermal filler injections, you should be able to resume regular activity after your treatment. However, it is recommended to avoid vigorous activity for the first 24 to 48 hours after your treatment to minimize bruising and swelling.
How long will results last?
Results depend on the type of dermal filler used, but most results from dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months before needing a touch-up. For hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, results can be seen almost immediately, and if for some reason, you are unhappy with the results of your dermal fillers, they can be dissolved with hyaluronidase.
How do I know which injectable filler is right for me?
There are a variety of different dermal fillers available, with each providing different benefits. In your initial consultation, Dr. Daniel Kolder will evaluate your facial anatomy and discuss your goals to determine which fillers will work to achieve your desired outcome.
