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 Dermal Fillers work?
*HA is an amazing, fundamental molecule involved in the maintenance of our skin's moisture content through its impressive 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 various thicknesses range from viscous and thick to smooth and thin.

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 decrease the appearance of aging in the neck and backs of hands. HA is considered to be very safe and is naturally absorbed by the body as it wears down. This is one of the reasons that fillers are such a widely used cosmetic tool.* *In the Greater Toronto Area, the best place to come and learn about the many ways dermal fillers can reduce signs of aging is Philosophy of Beauty in Vaughan.
