Non-Surgical Procedures

As one of the more experienced plastic surgeons in Newport Beach, Dr. Bruce J. Dubin recognizes that many patients feel apprehensive about undergoing surgical facial rejuvenation procedures. This is why he offers several highly effective non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures. While these treatments are not substitutes for surgery, they can diminish minor signs of aging, soften fine lines, and fill in hollow areas of the face.

Dr. Bruce Dubin has extensive experience with a wide variety of facial injectables. He will conduct a thorough consultation before recommending the most appropriate injectable treatment for you. In addition, he will explain the likely results, how long the results will last, and when you should schedule a follow-up appointment. Dr. Dubin will also encourage you to ask as many questions as you can think of. The goal of this process is to ensure that you are completely prepared for your facial injectable treatment and achieve the best results possible.

Botox Injections
Skin_Botox_insert_istockIt would be wonderful if we could have young looking skin all of our lives, but elements such as the wind and sunlight, coupled with the natural process of aging, take a toll on our bodies–especially our face. As we mature, our once youthful expressions begin to create permanent creases and wrinkles in our brow and between our eyes, making us look older than we actually are. If you have tried every over-the-counter cream and lotion on the market, and nothing has worked to erase those bothersome creases and wrinkles on your face, then Botox Cosmetic is just for you. Dr. Bruce Dubin, the medical director of the Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery practice, offers Botox Cosmetic treatment, which can visibly smooth and soften moderate to severe frown lines between your brows and on your forehead. Our Newport Beach Botox patients report an improvement within just days after their treatment, with results lasting from 3 to 6 months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed rated the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better than expected 1 month after treatment. Botox Cosmetic is also effective for smoothing lines on other areas of the face, including crow’s feet, wrinkled lip lines, and neckband creases. If you are ready to start erasing those furrowed brow lines and want to feel younger and more attractive, then Dr. Dubin offers a personalized Botox Cosmetic treatment program that relaxes the muscles and the skin for a smooth appearance. Botox Cosmetic is a procedure that has been safely used to treat a variety of conditions for more that 10 years. Dr. Dubin, specifically, has worked with a great number of patients with very positive results. As well, Botox Cosmetic is approved by the FDA. The procedure is quite simple and no anesthesia is required, although Dr. Dubin may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to the injection. Dr. Dubin will first determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create a furrowed brow vary markedly among individuals. Then, Dr. Dubin will administer several tiny injections of Botox Cosmetic directly into the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows. Our patients report that there is little discomfort during treatment, comparing the sensation of a “pin prick.” Patients are able to resume normal activity immediately. The procedure is so easy that you can have it done during your lunch break. If you have noticed that moderate to severe lines between your eyes and eyebrows may be adding years to your age, ask Dr. Dubin how Botox Cosmetic can help you turn back time and give you a more youthful appearance. Before and after pictures of Dr. Dubin’s patients will give you the opportunity to see the amazing results that can be achieved with Botox Cosmetic.

Finally, there is an answer to those lines and wrinkles on the face that is lasting and does not require testing prior to use. Unlike bovine collagen products, Restylane is composed of a naturally occurring substance (hyaluronic acid) that is found in the human body.

Dr. Bruce Dubin, medical director of the Plastic Surgery Center in Newport Beach California offers a variety of dermal (facial) fillers including Restylane. Dr. Dubin recommends Restylane to hid patients as it is a safe, cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasal labial folds. The non-surgical procedure is quick, fast and the results are long-lasting. There is no recovery time!


Restylane is a non-animal-based filler that virtually eliminates any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reactions. Restylane is safe and is considered natural cosmetic dermal filler. Restylane works by restoring volume that results in a fullness to the skin. Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that exists in your body. Aside from the minimal risks, this filler lasts longer than any other now on the market. We have seen patients with positive results six months or longer.


Restylane has been used safely and effectively in the United States since 1996. Millions of Restylane treatments have been administered to both women and men. Restylane is proven to deliver long-lasting results. Dr. Dubin has found that our patients generally see nice corrective results to up to six months.

If you are considering a non-surgical facial enhancement that will correct facial wrinkles, we invite you to speak with our aesthetic professional staff about the benefits of Restylane. Dr. Dubin believes that Restylane just may be the answer you have been looking for!

From the creators of Botox Cosmetic, Juvederm Injectable Gel was designed to restore the youthful skin that has been diminished by age and other skin changes. The injectable gel filler, is a “next generation” dermal filler that has been FDA approved. Juvederm Injectable Gel is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.

As a non-surgical procedure, Dr. Bruce Dubin gently eases Juvederm Injectable Gel under the skin into the mid to deep dermis of the face to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, “smile lines”, or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Unlike many collagen-based dermal fillers, Juvederm Injectable Gel provides a smooth, natural, noticeable look and feel.

There are 3 different types of Juvederm Injectable Gels and Dr. Dubin will discuss which areas will bring the best results to your face. The most common areas where Juvederm Injectable Gel is used are:

  • Lips
  • Nasolabial folds (the lines just lateral to the mouth/nose)
  • Marionette lines (the lines just below the lip corners)
  • Tear trough (area along the orbital rim)
  • Cheeks

A Juvederm Injectable Gel advantage is its pliant gel consistency, which may provide a smoother, more natural-looking appearance than some of its more rigid predecessors. According to Dr. Dubin, another advantage to using Juvederm Injectable Gel is it may last longer than collagen fillers, maintaining the improved appearance for six to nine months, if you have follow-up treatment a few weeks after the first treatment.

We invite you to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Dubin to determine if Juvederm injectable gel is right for you. He will speak with you about your specific goals and show you how you can obtain a smoother, more youthful-looking face by receiving injections of Juvederm at his plastic surgery offices. Call Dr. Bruce Dubin today at 949-640-4911.

Dr. Bruce Dubin offers Perlane, which is similar to Restylane in that it is a hyaluronic acid filler. The Perlane molecule is larger than the Restylane molecule and more suitable for injection into deeper facial wrinkles and facial depressions. Perlane was approved by the FDA in May of 2007.

 Perlane is made from non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (HASHA) gel. This means that Perlane contains no animal products. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin and other tissue, there is no need to have a skin test before using. The results of a Perlane filler treatment tend to last six months to a year. This is much longer than the typical results of collagen injections, which may last only 3 months. It is commonly used for wrinkle correction, diminishing worry lines, smile line, crow’s feet, marionette lines and smoker’s lines.

Also it can be used for lip enhancement and reducing the severity of nasolabial folds. It can be used for chin augmentation, filling cheek depressions, redefining lip border and softening acne scars. These are just a few of the uses for Perlane.

During your consultation with Dr. Dubin, he will explain the benefits of each facial filler option and determine which is the most effective to achieve the results you desire. While some patients might benefit from Perlane injections, others might be better served by receiving injections of Botox, Juvederm or Restylane in Newport Beach / Orange County.
