As we age our skin loses volume, hydration collagen and elasticity- all of which promote a youthful, healthy-looking appearance. Injectable filler is used to give volume and create contours on the face where they are needed or where the volume has disappeared with age, making enormous difference in one’s appearance.
Soft Tissue fillers can be injected in most parts of the face and with our highly skilled Doctor and Nurse, their experience and artistic eye the application is only limitless. Common areas that can be injected include nasolabial folds (lines from corner of nose to corner of mouth), marionette lines (sad lines), smokers’ lines and lips to enhance volume and definition. They can also be used to disguise humps and bumps of the nose (non surgical nose job), create an eyebrow lift, replace lost volume to the mid face and cheeks, define cheek bones and enhance the chin.
Dermal fillers contain the body’s own natural material, hyaluronic acid, which found throughout our body in our connective and neural tissues. In the skin it creates volume by binding water to hydrate the skin and resulting in a healthy and vital appearance. This means that hyaluronic acid in the dermal fillers are considered extremely low-risk with minimal complications. Injectable fillers with hyaluronic acid are naturally metabolized over time and disappear from our bodies in a safe way.
After treatment you may experience some swelling, tenderness and redness. This is a normal result of the injection and the above symptoms generally disappear in two to four days. The results are immediate and last anywhere between 4 and 12 months with 6 to 9 months being a general average. Dermal fillers are temporary and non-surgical and can result in a younger, refreshed, and revitalized appearance. At Med Cosmetics Clinic we use only the top-rated and best hyaluronic products available in Canada today.
