About Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers add volume and definition to facial features while keeping your appearance looking natural, symmetrical and well balanced. They can be used to enhance and rejuvenate your appearance and will have you looking and feeling instantly refreshed.
At the Appearance Medicine and Wellness Centre we offer a range of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. We use this category of temporary fillers as they are clinically proven, provide excellent patient satisfaction and have a low incidence of side effects.
Depending on your desired result, this simple treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, restore volume in cheeks, lips, the under eye area, back of the hands and even the earlobes. It can also be used to create definition in the jawline, cheekbones and chin.
Dermal filler is an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your skin. The treatment is quick, simple, comfortable and non surgical. It involves subtle and strategically placed injections under the skin to boost individual facial features.
The typical areas of Dermal Filler treatments include:
- Softening smile lines
- Restoring lost fullness in your cheeks
- Enhancing lips
- Contouring your jaw line
- Refreshing hollows under eyes
- Softening marionette lines
- Reducing nasolabial folds
- Lifting brows
- Improvement of scars
The treatment typically lasts from 12 to 24 months depending on the area treated and the product used. Dr Ron and Kate, both have years of experience with a variety of fillers including Juvederm Ultra™, Juvederm Ultra Plus™, Vobella®, Volift, Voluma®, Esthélis® and Restylane®. Our broad product selection means that we can choose the product which most closely suits your needs.
After the treatment, the appearance of lines on your face will be reduced, your lips will appear fuller and more defined, and your cheeks plump. You will leave looking naturally refreshed so that everyone will notice, but no one will know why.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers are a gel containing hyaluronic acid that is injected into or below the skin by a healthcare professional to smooth facial wrinkles and enhance lips by restoring volume and fullness. Do not have Dermal Filler injections in an area where there is a non resorbable implant or if you have irritated or infected skin, allergy to hyaluronic acid or other severe allergies, autoimmune disorders or hypersensitivity to local anesthetic or porphyria. Caution if you have a bleeding disorder, if you take medicines that prolong bleeding time, have had poor results with previous similar injections, have angina combined with rheumatism or a tendency to large scar formation. Dermal Filler treatments may result in some redness, swelling, pain or tenderness, itching and/or bruising which may last a few days. Inflammatory reactions can last up to two weeks in rare cases. See your healthcare professional if any side effects concern you. Exposure to excessive sunlight or extreme cold should be avoided until redness or swelling has resolved. Dermal Fillers are not recommended for people taking blood thinning medicines and they have not been tested.
