Aesthetic Procedures

Over the last few years, dermal fillers have grown in popularity as a way to achieve a younger-looking appearance without surgery. Dr. Mario Yco of Your Cosmetic Office offers residents of Encinitas, California, and the surrounding communities Sculptra® and Bellafill® dermal fillers to help restore their youthful appearance.

As a dual board-certified physician in both ear, nose, and throat surgery and facial plastic surgery, Dr. Yco is also an expert at all types of aesthetic procedures. Call or schedule an appointment using the online booking tool. 

What Are Collagen-Stimulating Fillers?

Sculptra® and Bellafill® are both FDA-approved injectable fillers that are designed to replace lost collagen in the face over a gradual period of time. They are both injected into the dermis to address underlying causes of aging such as volume loss which leads to an increase in wrinkles and folds. They both stimulate the production of new collagen over time, meaning you get long-lasting, natural-looking results. Bellafill®, in particular, is approved to last up to five years.

Who Is a Candidate for Collagen-Stimulating Fillers?

The ideal candidate for treatments using Sculptra® are those looking to restore the production of collagen in their faces and correct signs of aging such as:

  • Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Marionette lines
  • Wrinkles on the chin

Ideal candidates for Bellafill® are also those looking to address signs of aging but can include individuals wanting to reduce the appearance of acne scars or add volume and definition to certain parts of the face. Some specific areas that Bellafill® can address include:

  • Correct acne scars.
  • Lift, contour, and define cheeks.
  • Reshape nose.
  • Fill hollowing under eyes.
  • Smooth nasolabial folds.
  • Smooth marionette lines.
  • Define jawline.
  • Enhance and define lips.
  • Smooth dimpling and creasing on the chin.

Radiesse® is FDA-approved to treat the lower part of the face and the hands. For this reason, the ideal candidate for Radiesse® injections should be looking to treat concerns related to the following:

  • Smile lines
  • Corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines
  • Pre-jowl folds
  • Chin Wrinkles
  • Volume loss in hands
  • Jawline contour

It is important that candidates for Radiesse®, Sculptra®, and Bellafill® treatments are in good overall health. The best way to determine your candidacy is by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Mario Yco at Your Cosmetic Office.

PATIENT TESTIMONIALS: THE IMPACT OF YCO

“Dr. Yco is an outstanding doctor”

Dr. Yco is the kind of doctor who takes the time to listen to the concerns of his patients. He doesn’t rush his patients. He is an outstanding doctor, and I would recommend him to anyone seeking care or looking to improve their appearance.

Collagen-Stimulating Injections Procedure

To prepare for your procedure, Dr. Yco will begin by cleaning the treatment area. He will then inject the product into the skin via the use of a fine gauge needle. Sculptra® works by gradually stimulating the production of new collagen with results showing around 4-6 weeks after treatment. Bellafill® relies on special microspheres that are suspended in a collagen gel. Once this collagen has been absorbed by the body, the microspheres remain, allowing for a fuller and more youthful appearance. With Bellafill®, results are instant and can last up to five years. Radiesse® boasts benefits that combine those from Sculptra® and Bellafill®. This unique injection stimulates collagen growth over time but also shows results immediately.

Post-Op Care

One of the best perks of minimally invasive facial rejuvenation with Sculptra®, Bellafill®, and Radiesse® is that you are able to return to your daily activities immediately following treatment. Some common side effects can be mild swelling or redness, but this should diminish after a few days. You will want to avoid touching or laying directly on the treatment area for at least 24 hours after treatment to ensure the product stays in the correct place.
