Dermal FillersAuthor: Dr. Gordon Sasaki
Injectable fillers, administered by either Dr. Sasaki or his nurses at our Pasadena medical spa, can often satisfy the patient’s concerns for deepening facial folds, wrinkles, and facial hollowing. Dr. Sasaki understands that aging involves not only sagging of tissues but also deflation of soft tissues. Although he performs a number of surgical corrections for these problems, he also offers nonsurgical options.
Dr. Sasaki uses only FDA-approved fillers for immediate volumetric corrections for facial lines and wrinkles. These fillers are temporary, reversible, and will be absorbed by your body over time.
Dermal Fillers Offered:
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC
- Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®
- Volbella XC FDA (approved for lip lines)
- Belotero Balance

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC
Dr. Sasaki was one of the first doctors in the United States to have and use JUVÉDERM Voluma™ XC.
Voluma XC is the only FDA-approved filler for the mid-face to correct age-related volume loss. Natural looking results last up to two years with optimal treatment. With its proprietary mixture of low- and high-molecular weight HA, Voluma XC is an efficiently and tightly cross-linked gel. This formulation contributes to the gel’s lift capacity and duration.
Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®
Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® are made of hyaluronic acids which are present normally in your body. Because these large sugar molecules contain no protein, there are minimal risks of allergic reactions and do not require a skin test. The doctor and his nurses will identify the best option for you to suit your needs.
Treatment takes only about 15 minutes. You can expect slight redness and swelling for a few days up to a week. A touch-up session may be required after two to four weeks to obtain optimal results. Patients may wish to combine BOTOX® Cosmetic injections and injectable fillers at the same or different sites to achieve optimal outcomes for busy lifestyles.
Radiesse®, another FDA-approved filler for the nasolabial lines, is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite molecules which are normally present in your body. The filler is encapsulated inside a microsphere shell. This filler should be positioned at a deeper level than the hyaluronic acid filler to obtain a smooth and long-lasting contour. This unique filler is additionally useful to provide volume and rejuvenate the deflated mid-face and the tops of hands.
Belotero Balance is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is a cohesive polydensified matrix (CPM) process. When it is injected, it evenly and completely blends into your skin, providing a natural, finished look. It integrates within your skin’s tissue. Belotero Balance fills small gaps beneath your skin’s surface, smoothing moderate-to-severe etched-in facial lines and wrinkles. Your face maintains normal movement and facial expression and feels natural to the touch.
