Dermal fillers and volume-building injections, often known by their commercial names such as Juvederm®, Esthelis®, Teosyal®, Restylane® and others, are widely used in aesthetic medicine to fill static wrinkles and to compensate for the loss of volume over time. They are composed of hyaluronic acid, a carbohydrate (sugar derivative) occurring naturally throughout the human body. As we age and due to repeated exposure to environmental pollutants and the sun’s UV rays, our skin cells lose their ability to produce hyaluronic acid. As a result, facial features become harsh and sunken. That’s when volume-building injections of synthesized hyaluronic acid come in handy. Injected under the skin, hyaluronic acid binds to water, capable to hold more than thousand times its weight, which makes it ideal to hydrate the skin and to maintain tissue volume. It is a safe non-surgical treatment, often used in combination with Botox® Cosmetic injections, for the most natural rejuvenating effect.
Dermal filler injections can be used to correct and improve various aspects of the face. The most commonly treated areas are lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and cheekbones. Other areas include under-eye area, cheeks and even temples that are often affected by the loss of volume. Dermal fillers are also used to reshape the lower face in order to minimize the look of sagging “jowls”.
The most commonly treated areas include cheeks, nasolabial folds, under-eye area, temples, chin and lips. Your doctor will choose the most suitable product for your skin type and application. The quantity of product injected will depend on the surface and the depth of the treated area. The procedure usually takes 30 to 90 minutes, with little to no downtime. Potential side effects include redness, swelling and bruising at the injection site, but usually resolve quickly. The results are immediate and last for ten to twelve months.
Moreover, injectable dermal fillers may be used to achieve a facelift effect without the consequences of a surgical procedure. This approach is known as Soft Lift. Our physicians have developed specific expertise in this technique using precise application of dermal fillers to restore lost volume and to enhance overall facial contours. Depending on each individual case, a Soft Lift treatment requires 6 to 12 syringes of hyaluronic acid and may or may not be used in combination with Botox® Cosmetic. The particular choice of strategic focal injection sites creates a refreshed and rejuvenated look.Photos and Actual Results
Identifying your injection treatment goals and needs is crucial. Several aspects are to be considered, including your age, skin quality and condition, genetics, etc., and would affect the amount of product required for optimal and natural results. During the consultation we will discuss your goals and expectations, and present our expertise in order to offer the best advice based on your priorities and budget.
Pictures taken before the procedure help to get a better view and understanding of the areas affected by the loss of volume and can be used when discussing your goals with the physician. When compared to your “After” pictures, they are an effective way to see the results of the treatment and will be used as reference over time.
Applying a lidocaine-based gel to the areas to be treated will numb the skin and make injections more comfortable. While it is not a common practice at other clinics, at Dermapure we never skip this step to make sure your experience is pain-free and enjoyable.
Our philosophy is to bring out the natural beauty by restoring balance to the face. Your injection specialist proceeds with the injections of the best hyaluronic acid product available on the market in accordance with the individual morphology of each patient. The product is injected under the skin with a needle or a small cannula, depending on the chosen technique, with the goal to achieve face symmetry, restore natural contours and compensate for the loss of volume. The number of syringes needed will vary based on the surface and depth of the treated areas. Throughout the session, you may use a mirror to follow the procedure and to participate in certain decisions. A typical injection treatment lasts 30 to 60 minutes.
It is possible to return to your normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Localized redness, swelling and bruising may occur, but will subside quickly. No actual downtime is expected. The effects are immediate, with optimum results achieved in the month following the treatment, and last for ten to twelve months.
