What are dermal fillers?
*Dermal fillers are becoming more popular each year as the cosmetic industry makes greater varieties available at lower price points than ever before. They provide instant, impressive results to smooth wrinkles and add volume where patients want it. Facial injectable products most commonly contain hyaluronic acid, which helps to fill facial lines or restore volume lost in areas like the cheeks and lips. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is injected under the skin at various depths with fine needles or cannulas. The results typically last between 6-18 months before a touch up is needed.*
How Do Dermal Fillers work?
*Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an amazing, fundamental molecule involved in the maintenance of our skin's moisture content through its ability to attract and hold water. HA is naturally present in our skin, joints, cartilage and brain tissue. Laboratory designed HA dermal fillers are often crosslinked on a molecular level that results in various thicknesses. These product consistencies range from viscous and thick to smooth and thin. Our team of medical professionals will choose the ideal product for the area of the face being treated.**Dermal fillers can help add volume on the face for patients of all ages. Common treatment areas include: under eyes, the lips, cheeks, chin and jawline, nasolabial folds, (laugh lines) and marionette lines at the bottom corners of the mouth. HA fillers can even improve the appearance of the neck and backs of hands. HA is naturally absorbed by the body over time. This is one of the reasons this filler type is such a widely used cosmetic tool.* *In the Greater Toronto Area, dermal filler uses, treatment considerations, and everything you need to know can be learned at Philosophy of Beauty in Vaughan.
