Dermal Fillers in Santa Barbara

As we age, the natural volume and fullness in our face diminishes. While we can exercise to help maintain our body’s physique, there is not an at-home (or at-the-gym) remedy for facial aging. Over-the-counter creams and serums may give a “temporary” lift but they cannot provide the structure that is needed for longer-lasting results.

Fortunately, dermal fillers can replace the volume and fullness that has been lost. In addition to volume replacement, fillers can be used to correct skin imperfections like wrinkles, acne scars, fine lines, and can also be used to enhance the fullness of the lips. Many of the fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA) that is a naturally-occurring substance found in the skin. HA helps deliver nutrients, retain moisture and softness, and adds volume to the skin. Dermal filler results are instantaneous and can last 6 months to a year or more!

Here is information about some of our more popular dermal fillers at Evolutions:

Restylane and Restylane LyftThese FDA-approved fillers can be used for correction of mid-face contour deficiencies and for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles. They are comprised mostly of hyaluronic acid. They can last from 6 months to a year or more. In a clinical trial, patient satisfaction rate was 95.2% two months post treatment and 73% 12 months post treatment.

This HA filler is also FDA-approved and used to treat deficiencies in the cheeks in addition to lines and wrinkles. With optimal treatment, Juvederm has been proven to last one year in wrinkles and folds. When treated again after 1 year, patients needed less product to achieve their results.

This filler differs from Juvederm and Perlane because it is primarily comprised of Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel carrier. When injected, Radiesse provides immediate volume and correction. It continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, as the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA, your own natural collagen will be left behind. Radiesse is also FDA-approved.

If you are looking to replace lost collagen, Scupltra is a great option. The main ingredient of Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. Unlike Radiesse, Perlane, and Juvederm, results are not instantaneous. You will see results gradually over 3 to 6 months and they typically last 2 years. An excellent option for those that don’t need immediate correction and are looking for longer lasting results.

Interested in Dermal Fillers and Want to Learn More?
Join us on Wednesday, June 8th, at 6:30 pm for our Fillers 101 event to learn the basics of fillers and see if they are right for you. Dr. Perkins will be doing a live filler demonstration! There will be a raffle, refreshments, and exclusive specials for attendees. Fillers 101 is one of our most popular events of the year! Call us today to reserve your spot: (805) 695-2160.

Injectable Week at Evolutions Santa Barbara Includes Dermal Fillers, Botox and Dysport

As most of our loyal clients know, Evolutions Medical & Day Spa in Santa Barbara has the Biggest Week of the Year right around the corner! Injectable Week happens once a year with big savings on your favorite dermal filler or wrinkle-reducer (Botox or Dysport). This year it begins on Monday, December 2nd, and lasts until Saturday, December 7th, 2013. We are booking appointments now for Injectable Week!

For those of you who are not as familiar with dermal fillers, Sculptra, and/or the wrinkle-reducers Botox and Dysport, we will happily share with you some information about each of them. Perhaps it will help you to make a decision about getting an injectable treatment or encourage you to add a new treatment to your anti-aging arsenal.

Botox and Dysport
Botox and Dysport treatments are one of our most popular services at Evolutions, year round. This is not surprising! In 2012, there were over 6 million Botox or Dysport treatments in the US. Botox and Dysport are forms of botulinum toxin type A. They are both injected under the skin to treat overactive muscles in the forehead area. Botox and Dysport block the signals to the muscle that tell them to contract, resulting in a smooth, frown-less forehead. Botox or Dysport can take from 1 to 7 days to “set in” and start working. Both are FDA approved and are deemed safe and effective in the treatment of facial wrinkles. Dysport is a smaller molecule than Botox, so the units are different (i.e. 20 units of Botox equal 60 units of Dysport). Results are temporary and last about 3 to 4 months.

Evolutions Santa Barbara Dermal Fillers Treatment Areas

Possible Treatment Areas for Dermal Fillers

Restylane and Perlane: Dermal Fillers
Restylane and Perlane are in the same family of products. They are both dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid that are formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. These are injected under the skin to fill in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane can also be used to add fullness to the lips. Replacing volume lost in the face can help restore a more youthful appearance. Perlane differs from Restylane in the average size of the particles and the depth of the injection. Your Evolutions clinician will help you determine which product is best for you. Results are instantaneous and can last 6 months or more (in most cases).

Radiesse Dermal Filler
Radiesse is also a dermal filler. It differs from Restylane or Perlane in that it is comprised of calcium microspheres in gel. Radiesse is also injected under the skin to provide volume and structure in areas where volume has diminished. The bonus that Radiesse offers is that it works to stimulate your body to produce it’s own natural collagen. As the calcium gel is absorbed, your own natural collagen will remain behind, giving you volume and structure. Results are instantaneous and have been clinically proven to last one year or more.

Sculptra Aesthetic
Our newest treatment, Sculptra Aesthetic, is a bit different than hyaluronic dermal fillers or Radiesse. This new facial injectable does not give instantaneous results, instead subtle results are achieved over time. Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for years in dissolvable stitches. Sculptra works deep within the dermis to gradually restore the collagen foundation that is lost as we age. With a more solid foundation, fullness is steadily returned to facial wrinkles. Results can last two years or more. Most clients require a full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, which is an average of three injection sessions over a few months, for the best outcome. Full results are gradually seen over 3 to 6 months.

A Note About Dermal Fillers and Botox/Dysport Treatments
If you’ve never had a dermal filler or Dysport/Botox treatment, you will have to come in for a consultation with our Physician’s Assistant, Nurse Practitioner or Dr. Perkins prior to your first treatment. Call us today to book your complimentary consultation (or submit a consultation request online) and/or to make an appointment for Injectable Week (805-687-0212).

Santa Barbara Day Spa Escape at Evolutions: Event Recap

On Wednesday evening at Evolutions Medical and Day Spa, we held an event to introduce our Day Spa services. Attendees were treated to complimentary mini-treatments of massage, facials, Vibraderm, Microdermabrasion, DermaSweep, and Glo Mineral make-up application. Our lead estheticians also spoke about our day spa services offered. Our recap follows:


At Evolutions we have highly-trained massage therapists. Although massage is usually thought of as a pampering service, there are many therapeutic benefits of massage such as reducing stress, muscle tension, and pain. A massage can also help you feel and look better and sleep better. Massage may also be helpful in reducing headaches (or migraines), insomnia, digestive disorders, and anxiety. Studies have shown that receiving a massage on a consistent basis can boost the benefits you receive.

Evolutions offers a variety of massage services in 60, 75, or 90 minute sessions. View our Massage Menu on our website for additional information and pricing. 

FACIALS at Evolutions

Our facial menu is the true fusion of luxurious and clinical. All our facials are designed to lull you into a deep relaxation while giving you results that you would expect from a physician’s office. We address many skin concerns, including:

  • Santa Barbara Facials at EvolutionsRejuvenation of your skin (Rejuvenating Facial, 60 minutes)
  • Sun damage and dry or stressed skin (Corrective Facial, 60 minutes)
  • Acne and blemish-prone skin (Express Acne Facial, 45 minutes, or Acne Facial, 80 minutes)
  • Aging skin (Frozen In Time DNA Facial, 90 minutes, or Age-Defying Oxygen Facial, 90 minutes)
  • Sensitive skin (Organic Facial, 60 minutes)

Santa Barbara Body Scrubs at EvolutionsTreat your body to a full exfoliation and hydration. Our Body Wraps are designed to nourish the skin from head to toe. Add a Vichy Shower Treatment to either of our Body Wraps (Aloe Coconut or Naturally Nourishing) for a fully relaxing experience. The Vichy Shower Treatment – named for an area in France that is known for their therapeutic waters – is a horizontal shower with seven jets that stream warm water over your body while lying on a treatment bed. It is truly a unique experience and only available in Santa Barbara at Evolutions Day Spa. All of our Body Scrubs (Chocolate Dream, Salt Stone Glow, and Abyhanga Dosha) include a Vichy Shower.

View our Body Treatments Menu for more details and pricing.


We are now offering a wider variety of mechanical exfoliation treatments to encourage cell turnover for fresher, more youthful skin. These are stand-alone treatments or can be added to any facial.

  • DermaSweep MD is our most advanced physical exfoliation that is done with a patented treatment tip that allows the clinician to “sweep away” dead skin quickly and painlessly. The treatment is customized with an infusion to treat skin-specific concerns such as acne, dehydration, or hyperpigmentation.
  • DiamondTome Crystal Free Microdermabrasion removes the outer dead layer of skin to promote growth of healthy new skin.
  • Vibradermabrasion uses abrasive paddles that vibrate at a rapid rate to stimulate collagen production and allow products a deeper level of penetration. The treatment is quick and pain-free.


Waxing is also available at Evolutions Day Spa. For areas and pricing, view our Waxing Menu.
