Dermal Filler Introduction

Dermal Fillers

As we age, we naturally lose suppleness to our skin as a result of the loss of subcutaneous fat. The muscles on our face and neck naturally lose their strength, and the skin can lose elasticity. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle. Seeing an increase in wrinkles and sagging skin can affect our confidence, but it doesn’t have to diminish your self-esteem or lifestyle. By opting for a Dermal Filler treatment, you can give yourself a much-needed boost with a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, and our specialists are ready to work with you at our Toronto, ON, clinic today, giving you the body and skin makeover you dream of with our cutting edge treatments.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectables, usually made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), used to help to create a smoother or fuller appearance in the face, including nasolabial folds (the lines extending from the sides of the nose to the edges of the mouth), cheeks, chin, lips, and back of the hands. More than 1 million men and women annually choose this popular facial rejuvenation treatment, which can be a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime.

With a number of dermal filler products to choose from, it can be difficult to know which option is best for you without an experienced cosmetic surgeon’s guidance. Each product is uniquely formulated to have a certain texture, density, and injection depth, which means that certain fillers work better for certain areas of concern. When you come in for a consultation, our specialists can help you determine which dermal filler is right for you.

Who are the best candidates for Dermal Fillers?

If you are starting to notice more wrinkles around your eyes, increased forehead lines, additional smile creases, and fine lines in other areas of your face, you might be a good candidate for a Dermal Filler. Patients who generally experience good health, don’t smoke, are committed to maintaining good skin health, and have realistic goals and expectations are the ideal candidate for Dermal Fillers. Everyone’s reasons for utilizing a Dermal Filler are personal, and it is important to discuss these with our specialists when you book in your consultation.

What are the benefits of Dermal Fillers?

There are a variety of ways a Dermal Filler in Toronto can benefit and enhance your look. Some of these include:

  • Plump thin lips
  • Enhance shallow contours
  • Soften facial creases and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of recessed scars
  • Reconstruct contour deformities in the face

What to expect on the day of a Dermal Filler treatment

On the day of your appointment, your specialist will walk you through the procedure and the techniques they will be using. The treatment is administered in stages, which the specialist will explain before they begin.

The first step is the facial assessment and mapping. Your specialist will evaluate your facial appearance and skin tone and examine the areas of your face to be augmented.

Strategic points on your face may be marked as the appropriate injection sites for the filler. Photographs may be taken of the areas to be treated.

Step two is cleansing and anesthetizing. The injection sites will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent. Pain at the injection site can be tempered by use of a very cold instrument to chill the skin, anesthetic ointment to numb the skin or injection of local anesthesia.

Step three is the injection itself. Injection usually takes only a few moments per site. The process of injecting, massaging, and evaluating the result is performed, and additional filler is added as needed.

Step four is clean up and recovery. Once the results are deemed satisfactory by your specialist and the patient, any markings will be cleaned off. You may be offered an ice pack to reduce swelling and alleviate discomfort.

Dermal Fillers recovery

The Dermal Filler treatment is very quick and mostly pain free. There is no downtime needed after you receive the treatment, which means you can resume normal activities right after your appointment. It is generally recommended that you avoid intense physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising. Be sure to discuss your specific recovery plan with your specialist prior to scheduling your injections.
