What Concerns Can Be Improved with Non-Surgical Treatments?
Many patients are surprised to learn how many aesthetic concerns can be treated without invasiveness, anesthesia, or surgery. Our non-surgical services can be excellent options for patients who aren’t quite ready for facial plastic surgery or who would like to touch-up the results of a previous procedure. The results from certain cosmetic treatments — such as injectable fillers, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and Dysport® — require maintenance, while others like laser skin resurfacing and KYBELLA® provide a long-term improvement. Keep reading to explore the types of concerns that can be addressed with our minimally invasive services.
Dull or Unhealthy Complexion
The face is extremely vulnerable to smoking, dirt, UV rays, environmental pollutants, and other impurities that can compromise the tone and texture of the skin. If your face feels rough, dull, or generally unhealthy, OC Facial Plastic Surgery offers patients near Newport Beach several potential solutions. For a more immediate result, aesthetic lasers can be used to slough off old, unhealthy skin cells and encourage the growth of newer, softer skin. Laser skin resurfacing is typically performed as an in-office treatment and offers visible results in the days, weeks, and months following treatment.
Alternatively, a consistent and doctor-recommended skin care regimen is essential to achieving a healthy and radiant complexion. Medical-grade skin care products including Dr. Sepehr’s Firm and Fade serum, sunscreen, sensitive skin cleanser, and moisturizer can be purchased directly from our online shop to upgrade your daily routine and set a foundation for smoother, younger-looking skin. SkinMedica® products can also be purchased directly from our online shop. Dr. Sepehr and our aesthetic team would be happy to recommend products based on your unique needs and skin care goals.

We all desire a sharp, sleek jawline to highlight the youthful contours of the face. Dr. Sepehr offers both surgical and non-surgical jawline contouring options to reduce a “double chin,” remove excess fat from the neck, and create more definition in your facial profile. If you would like to get rid of extra fullness underneath the chin, KYBELLA® offers an injectable treatment to destroy fat cells and achieve slimmer angles in the face. This is possible with the product’s key ingredient — deoxycholic acid — which allows the body to naturally metabolize the targeted fat over the weeks following injections. Your jawline may also be enhanced by attaining more volume and definition in the chin using dermal fillers.

Wrinkles and Fine Lines
If your main concern is smoothing wrinkles and other fine lines, including crow’s feet, frown lines, and brow creases, our range of injectable treatments can provide powerful results. Options that relax overactive facial muscles, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, are generally best suited to improve wrinkles that develop as a result of repeated facial expressions. This often includes fine lines commonly found near the corners of the eyes and above and between the eyebrows. Deeper facial creases like nasolabial folds (“smile lines”) and marionette lines can also be addressed with injectable fillers, which help smooth pronounced folds in the face by adding volume directly in those locations and indirectly to the cheeks.

Creases and Facial Volume Loss
For patients who feel their face looks flat, sunken, or lacking fullness, facial fillers from JUVÉDERM® — such as VOLBELLA and VOLUMA, and VOLLURE — as well as Restylane® (including LYFT, SILK, KYSSE, REFYNE, and DEFYNE) can provide a very natural-looking volume enhancement. Depending on the type of filler chosen, you can reduce creases and plump thinning or hollow features, such as the lips, temples, under-eye hollows, and cheeks. The fillers offered at OC Facial Plastic Surgery are composed of hyaluronic acid — a naturally-occurring substance in the body that adds noticeable volume in the treated areas. With the best possible treatment, JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® fillers can achieve noticeable results for 6 to 18 months depending on the specific product chosen. Injectable fillers can also be used after a facelift or at the same time as blepharoplasty to provide a more comprehensive rejuvenation.
Acne Scarring, Sun Damage, Hyperpigmentation
Nothing matches the confidence of having a clear, even skin tone and, in some cases, non-surgical treatments can be the optimal approach to renewing your complexion. Laser skin resurfacing is considered a highly effective way to reduce many universal skin concerns, including dark spots, old acne scars, sun damage, rough patches, and age spots, among other imperfections. With advanced aesthetic lasers, including the SmartSkin™ CO2, JOULE™, Contour TRL™, and Profractional-XC™ systems, treatment can be tailored to your skin type and the severity of your concerns. Once your skin heals from laser resurfacing, patients typically report a softer, healthier, and more radiant skin tone overall. During a consultation, our aesthetic team will help you determine the most ideal laser system to resolve your concerns.

A liquid facelift is a popular treatment that can help you look younger without the invasiveness or downtime of surgery. This is accomplished through a meticulous combination of dermal fillers (designed to restore lost facial volume and fill deep creases) and BOTOX® Cosmetic/Dysport® (to relax the depressor muscles of the face and give the elevators a mechanical advantage), often mimicking some of the results of facelift surgery.

Injectable Dermal Fillers
Injectable dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® can not only fill in deep wrinkles and fine lines along the face for a smoother appearance, they can also add volume to facial features such as the lips and cheeks. Plus, many dermal fillers are known to have long-lasting results and can help you attain effective rejuvenation without the recovery time necessary with surgical treatment.

KYBELLA™ Double Chin Reduction

For those unable to see their desired results come to fruition, KYBELLA™ can be a remarkably effective non-surgical treatment to achieve a sleeker, more defined contour in the neck and under the chin. Using small injections of a naturally-occurring substance in the body, fat cells can be broken down for natural removal.
