Introduction to Dermal Fillers

Are you concerned that your jawline is not as defined as it used to be or have lost volume in areas of your face that’s making you look a lot older? Over time as facial volume changes, it moves forward and down. You also see the lines between the nose and mouth get heavier. Instead of going under the knife for a full-on facelift, leverage the magic of the non-surgical Dermal Fillers. 

Servicing the greater Los Angeles and Pasadena area, Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa is located conveniently in Arcadia. We focus on full facial rejuvenation and exceptional treatments that are completely non-surgical with natural-looking results.

Dermal Fillers- what

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are popular injectable substances that are used to restore volume and enhance facial contours. They are composed of various materials, such as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, or poly-L-lactic acid, which are safely injected into specific areas of the face to address signs of aging, wrinkles, and loss of volume. At Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, our dermal fillers can help smooth out fine lines, plump up lips, restore cheek volume and diminish the appearance of scars or deep folds. 

Dermal Fillers We Offer


With over 26 years of experience, Restylane’s variety of clear gel products will refresh and restructure your face. Restylane and Restylane-L are intended to smooth out those wrinkles and folds on your face, especially nasolabial folds that run deep from the nose to the corners of the mouth. For that fuller, fresh look for your lips or want to smooth out those lines around the mouth, Restylane Silk and Restylane Kysse are your ideal options. Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne tackle those moderate to severe wrinkles and folds on your face, ensuring your natural expressions remain unaffected as they work beneath the skin’s surface to smooth out creases effectively.

Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine, a numbing agent, addresses volume loss in your cheeks, reducing wrinkles, or rejuvenating your hands. When it comes to subtly lifting the cheeks or redefining your chin, Restylane Defyne and Restylane Contour offer natural-looking touches that cater to those specific facial areas. Finally, for those worried about under-eye hollows, Restylane Eyelight is designed to brighten and refresh the area, ensuring a more rested and youthful appearance.


RADIESSE is a well-trusted dermal filler that immediately adds volume to safely contour, correct, and beautify facial features while providing long-term improvement in the skin’s appearance. The dermal filler has patented microsphere technology and stimulates the body to produce new collagen for a soft, natural look that lasts. RADIESSE dermal filler is made of unique patented calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel carrier. When injected into the skin, these microspheres initially perform as a filler – they immediately provide facial volume for a soft, natural look. 

Over time, your body will gradually absorb the gel carrier, leaving the very tiny, smooth microspheres to remain. These microspheres start a process in your body called neocollagenesis, the creation of new collagen. New collagen production will begin in your own body and encourage collagen growth around the injection site(s).

Belotero Balance

Belotero injections stand out as dermal fillers with their unique formulation and effectiveness, especially in treating fine lines and wrinkles in areas where the skin is thinner. Made primarily of hyaluronic acid, a substance known for its ability to retain moisture, Belotero Balance, an FDA-approved HA filler, adds volume to the skin and helps maintain it by binding those moisture molecules. This injection introduces lidocaine to ensure the process is more comfortable for the patient. Belotero is designed to blend seamlessly into the facial tissue, providing underlying support and instant improvement in appearance. Its ability to be accurately injected into the upper layers of the skin makes Belotero an ideal choice for tackling the delicate challenges presented by thin-skinned areas, particularly around the eyes.


KYBELLA injection is the first and only non-surgical product on the market used to treat excess submental fat (double chin). The active ingredient in Kybella™ is ATX-101 an artificial deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps breakdown the absorption of fat. When it is injected into the fat beneath your chin, the solution destroys fat cells resulting in your cells being unable to store or accumulate fat. 

We use authentic Kybella injection for the treatment of fat in areas such as under the chin, accessory breasts, breast tails, and love handles. Proper pre-injection of lidocaine helps us prevent significant pain during treatment. If you do not want any surgery and yet, want to have local fat removed, this product might be a good choice for you.


SCULPTRA Injections are part of our skin rejuvenation treatments used to provide a fuller, more youthful-looking appearance. It is a synthetic dermal filler containing poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates collagen production. As we age our skin produces less and less collagen, and sun exposure contributes to its depletion. Sculptra smoothes skin fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating the body to produce collagen.


JUVÉDERM, a leading collection of hyaluronic acid fillers, is FDA approved. Each product within the Juvederm family serves a unique purpose in adding volume to various facial areas, all achieved without invasive cosmetic surgery. Administered through injection by licensed specialists in aesthetic healthcare provider offices, JUVÉDERM fillers are renowned for their smooth, crystal-clear gel consistency.

Juvederm offers a range of six distinct hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers, each tailored to address specific volume needs across seven facial areas. Utilizing either a needle or cannula, specialists precisely inject the filler directly into the targeted treatment area. The fillers utilize Vycross® Technology, which involves cross-linking HA molecules to produce a specialized, smooth gel consistency. This elite process has undergone extensive research to ensure its safety. Due to the temporary nature of the results achieved with Juvederm fillers, maintenance usually involves retreatment to sustain the desired effects over time.

Dermal Fillers- first step

Dermal Fillers First Step

What’s The First Step?

Before receiving dermal filler injections, you will have a consultation with one of our Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Spa professionals. They will assess your face (and hands if applicable), and ask what exact areas you want enhanced and what your ultimate goals are. Your previous and current medical history, treatments, and allergies will be reviewed to avoid any unnecessary risks or complications. In addition, taking NSAIDs or blood thinners like naproxen, ibuprofen, aspirin, etc. are to be avoided as they could increase the chance of bruising. 

What to Expect on the Day of a Dermal Filler Treatment

On the day of your dermal filler at Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, you will be greeted by our warm staff and led to your treatment area. Your face or hands will be cleaned on-site before the procedure. They may take pictures of your face and mark strategic points to confirm injection sites. Local anesthesia or numbing ointments can be requested for comfort. 

After administering the dermal filler injections, Dr. Yu will cleanse your skin again and even provide an ice pack for any swelling or discomfort. Some recipients can see immediate results whereas others may take more time depending on several factors.

Dermal Fillers Recovery

Recovery time varies from person to person, their overall health, depending on which kind of dermal filler is injected. Most people can resume their daily activities almost immediately. Intense physical activity is to be avoided in the first 24-48 hours of the procedure to minimize bruising and swelling. The skin is going to feel a bit sore and achy, which is completely normal. Softness usually settles in about 7-10 days.
