Newport Beach Injectables

These are products used by Dr. Solmer for facial rejuvenation, which can be performed relatively quickly and produce results immediately in the case of fillers, or in a day or two for Botox, and recovery typically consists of slight redness at the injection sites for a few hours.


Botox is a purified neurotoxin which is approved for injection into the muscles to improve the look of frown lines between the eyebrows in adults younger than 65. These lines of the lower mid forehead are also known as glabellar lines. The treatment is temporary, but because it is usually effective with no down time, it has become enormously popular.

Dr. Solmer also uses Botox to control the effects of overactive muscles in the rest of the forehead, for forehead lines and creases, and in the crows feet areas around the eyes. Other areas include the chin, for irregular muscle dimples, the muscles depressing the corners of the mouth for patients with drooping of the corners of the mouth, and for platysmal bands in the neck. These other areas are all widely recognized indications for the use of Botox, but they are considered off-label, because they have not been specifically approved by the FDA. Basically, what Botox can do is help you with wrinkles which are not present when your facial muscles are completely at rest, but which become obvious when you animate, or use your facial muscles.


Restylane is a dermal filler, which means it is used to restore volume and fullness to the soft tissues of the face, and to correct folds and wrinkles. It is a clear gel composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body. Restylane is generally well tolerated without requiring any significant downtime. Dr. Solmer uses Restylane for treatment of the nasolabial folds, the corners of the mouth, marionette lines, jowl creases, lower eyelid margin creases, and to fill out over the cheek bones. He uses the Restylane-L, formulation, which contains lidocaine, making the injection virtually painless.


Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler very similar to Restylane, which has developed a reputation for flowing smoothly into the tissues. Dr. Solmer uses the Juvederm Ultra XC formulation, which also contains lidocaine for virtually painless injection. The same treatment areas for correction of facial folds and wrinkles and to create fullness apply.
