Cosmetic Face Fillers & Injectables

Below are breakdowns of the different kinds of dermal fillers and injectables available at our San Diego practice:


Botox San Diego CABotox is an injectable that temporarily reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face by stopping the muscle contractions that create them. It is specifically injected into deep grooves along the forehead or around the corners of the eyes.

Botox injections do not require anesthesia and a treatment session can be completed in 20 to 30 minutes. There is no downtime and you can resume regular activities right after treatment. The effects of Botox can be seen after three to four days and typically last three to five months. Botox does not work on wrinkles caused by sun damage or the effects of gravity.

Juvederm san diego ca | juvederm la jolla caJuvederm is a hyaluronic acid face filler used to plump the lips and fill in lines around the lips or the nasolabial fold that runs from the nose to the mouth. Since it is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally created in the human body, there is no need for allergy testing.

Juvederm treatments are performed in Dr. Kearney’s office. A topical anesthetic may be used before injection of this dermal filler, yet most of our patients don’t opt for it. Patients resume normal activities immediately after treatment. The results of Juvederm dermal fillers usually last six months to a year, depending on the areas treated.
