Facial Fillers


  • Hyaluronic acid is a substance created by the body that provides elasticity and volume. Our skin naturally loses Hyaluronic Acid as we age. This loss leads to sagging skin, wrinkles, folds and a general decrease in volume.

    Restylane is a synthetic hyaluronic acid gel that is formulated to act like the body’s own hyaluronic acid and smooth away wrinkles. Because Restylane is formulated based on the body’s own acid, it is perfectly biocompatible and is eventually broken down naturally within the body. Best of all, Restylane can provide stunning results after a single visit to our Beverly Hills office, which generally lasts less than an hour.

  • Restylane can add fullness and volume to skin of the face and correct many problem areas with folds, wrinkles and fine lines. In Asian nonsurgical rhinoplasty and Korean nonsurgical rhinoplasty it can also be used to reshape the nose and provide dorsal augmentation. Restylane is commonly used to add volume to the corners of the mouth (the nasolabial folds) and fine lines around the nose, and eliminate bags and tear troughs under the eyes. Restylane can also be used to create full and natural-looking lips. In fact, Restylane is the first and only FDA-approved dermal filler for lip augmentation.

The Restylane Regimen is a treatment consisting of an initial treatment and a follow up between 4 and 9 months afterwards. Most patients (more than 95%) who follow the Restylane Regimen see results lasting up to 18 months.

The procedure is non-surgical and very easily tolerated by most patients. A Restylane treatment consists of a single series of injections to the specific areas of concern on the face. While the treatment is commonly done without any painkiller, patients with sensitive skin or and those with a low threshold for pain can request painkiller. Restylane can actually be purchased as a mixture with lidocane, which provides a level of pain relief while remaining equally effective. This mixture is FDA approved and is popular because it eliminates the need for a series of painkiller shots prior to treatment.

JUVÉDERM® is a smooth gel filler (also called a dermal filler) that is used to instantly and non-surgically smooth away wrinkles and facial folds around the nose and mouth. A JUVÉDERM® treatment can be administered in our Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery office in as little as 15 minutes. After a single treatment patients will attain natural-looking results that can last as long as a full year.

  • JUVÉDERM® can address problems such as smile lines, lip lines, as well as other fine lines and wrinkles and restore a more natural skin contour. It is the filler Dr. Yoo prefers to use for lip augmentation because it provides such a smooth, natural result. JUVÉDERM® can safely be used in many areas of the face to add volume to areas that have naturally lost hyaluronic acid and collagen caused by aging and environmental stressors.

  • JUVÉDERM® is believed to be the smoothest dermal filler available and can have profound effects after just one short treatment. The procedure can generally be done in an hour or less, but patients often see effects that last up to a year. Dr. Yoo will use JUVÉDERM® after discussing your particular areas of concern to provide a tailored treatment that will meet your specific needs and offer long lasting results.

JUVÉDERM® treatments are usually well tolerated, but patients with sensitive skin or low pain tolerance can request a mixture of JUVÉDERM® and lidocane that will ease discomfort while still achieving magnificent results. JUVÉDERM® XC is a mixture of lidocane and JUVÉDERM® that is perfectly balanced to offer the cosmetic benefits of JUVÉDERM® while offering the pain relieving benefits of lidocane.

Perhaps because of the unique manufacturing process, JUVÉDERM® is often considered the smoothest hyaluronic acid filler available. Even patients who have received JUVÉDERM® treatments in the past may notice that the newer JUVÉDERM® formulations are more comfortable than in the past.

JUVÉDERM® is the first FDA approved dermal filler that does not come with the high risk of hyperpigmentation.

Revolutionary Needle-less Injection Technique

Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Donald B. Yoo, performs non-surgical rhinoplasty, liquid facelifts, non-invasive eyelifts, lip augmentation and dermal fillers with the use of the most advanced needle-less injection technique. Dr. Yoo is on the leading edge of plastic surgeons revolutionizing this technique.

Traditionally dermal fillers were injected with multiple pricks from a sharp needle. In addition to causing undue discomfort for the patient the sharp needles often cause tissue damage, resulting in bruises and swelling that lasts for days. With the new blunt-tip cannula, even delicate areas such as around the eyes can be injected with dermal fillers safely, with improved results. The blunt cannula glides through tissue, finding natural tissue planes, instead of causing trauma by simply cutting through tissue and blood vessels like a needle does.

The needle-less, blunt cannula injection technique improves safety while decreasing bruising and swelling. Patients can now enjoy the ease and convenience of dermal fillers, with increased comfort and less downtime.

Dr. Yoo looks forward to taking you from pretty to prettier®.
