Cosmetics Q & A

Which cosmetic problems are treated with dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injected just below your skin, where they fill in and lift wrinkles and folds, instantly diminishing their appearance.

The dermal fillers available at North County Women’s Specialists, the JuvédermⓇ XC family of products, consisting of hyaluronic acid mixed with a smooth gel base.

Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in your skin, where it binds with moisture to hydrate and plump your skin.

Juvéderm XC is specially formulated to diminish the appearance of wrinkles around your nose and mouth, producing results that may last up to one year.*


What cosmetic concerns are treated with Botox?

Botox is also an injectable, but it’s made from a purified form of botulinum toxin, which works differently than dermal fillers. Botox temporarily blocks nerve signals that make muscles contract.

When your doctor at North County Women’s Specialists precisely injects Botox into facial muscles, they relax. As a result, the wrinkles caused by those muscles are eliminated or significantly diminished.

Botox eliminates moderate-to-severe wrinkles such as:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead furrows
  • Neck bands


You’ll still look natural because your doctor targets a few specific muscles, leaving all other muscles to make you normal facial expressions. You’ll see the dramatic difference in 24-48 hours, then your results last up to four months.*


What cosmetic concerns are treated with chemical peels?

Chemical peels remove one or more layers of your skin. After the peel removes blemished, damaged, or dry skin, it’s replaced with fresh, strong skin that rejuvenates your appearance.

Chemical peels can treat a variety of cosmetic concerns, depending on the depth of the peel. The amount of recovery time you need is also determined by the depth of the peel.

These are a few examples of the chemical peels available at North County Women’s Specialists:

  • Refine peel package: targets fine lines and lightly resurfaces your skin; estimated downtime is three days
  • Clarity peel package: targets adult acne and skin discolorations; estimated downtime is 3-4 days
  • Premier transform peel package: targets adult acne, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and fine lines; estimated downtime is seven days.


All of these packages include products to use afterward to promote healing and provide follow-up skin care.
