Ottawa's Top lip filler and Dermal Fillers Provider

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers (hyaluronic acid) are non-surgical aesthetic treatments designed to restore volume and smooth fine lines.  These cosmetic fillers are generally used to treat facial lines, volume loss and the loss of elasticity in the skin. As you age, your skin will begin to lose elasticity. However, when dermal fillers are injected, they have the ability to stimulate new collagen fibres, which play a vital role in maintaining the skin’s structure and firmness. Enhance your beauty with the wonders of dermal fillers.


Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Why Dermal Fillers?

1. Non-Invasive 

What makes this procedure great is that there are no incisions, surgery, or anesthesia required. Dermal fillers also require little to no downtime, so you can get rid of your fine lines and wrinkles and revive the volume in your skin without significant recovery time.

2. Immediate Results

You will be able to see visible improvements in facial volume and a reduction in wrinkles and folds right after the treatment. Final results are typically seen after two weeks once the dermal filler has settled.

3. Customizable

Whether you desire fuller lips, smoother skin, or enhanced facial contours, dermal fillers offer a versatile and effective solution to help you achieve natural-looking results for your aesthetic concerns and goals. There are also various areas you can receive this treatment, including, but not limited to:

  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Jawline
  • Chin
  • Temples
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Tear Troughs

Most frequent questions and answers about dermal fillers.

Fillers or dermal fillers are generally safe, fast, non-surgical procedures used to treat skin conditions. These skin conditions may be from loss of elastin in the skin, wrinkles, saggy skin, or fine lines.

Dermal fillers are a natural compound of hyaluronic acid, which the body naturally produces.

Most dermal fillers last between six to 12 months, while others may last up to two years. There are various types of dermal fillers — your practitioner will choose the best one to meet your desired goals. You can also consult with them for more information on the longevity of the results.

Side effects from dermal fillers can last between one to two weeks following your initial procedure. Such side effects may include:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Tenderness

To alleviate these symptoms, over-the-counter medications or topicals may be used. If you’re experiencing any side effects other than the following, consult with a physician.

During your dermal filler procedure, you can expect a comfortable and relatively quick experience:
  • First, you’ll have a consultation with one of our Registered Nurses to assess your concerns, discuss your desired outcomes, and determine if dermal fillers are the right choice for you.
  • Before the procedure, the treatment area will be cleaned, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to ensure your comfort during the injections.
  • Using a fine needle, we’ll carefully inject the dermal filler to target the desired treatment areas. We’ll ensure precise placement for the most natural-looking results.
  • Once the treatment is complete, you will receive aftercare instructions.

Everyone’s skin and lifestyle are different, which is why it’s important to have an initial consultation with our clinic to ensure you are a good candidate for dermal fillers. Following this appointment, you will receive tips on how to prepare for your dermal filler treatment. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Plan for a little bit of downtime. While dermal filler procedures typically have a short recovery period, it’s still advisable to plan a few days for healing.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine at least 24 hours before your appointment. These substances can dehydrate your body and potentially increase the risk of bruising.
  • Stay hydrated. Proper hydration promotes healthy skin and can optimize your body’s response to the treatment.
  • Arrive with a clean face. Don’t apply makeup, lotions, or other products on the day of the procedure.
The duration of a dermal filler procedure can vary depending on the treated areas and your specific needs. Generally, it can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes to complete. The length of the treatment may depend on the number of injection sites and the complexity of the treatment plan. For example, treatments targeting smaller areas, like lips, may finish relatively quickly. On the other hand, more extensive treatments, like full-face rejuvenation, may require more time.

Dermal filler treatments are suitable for a wide range of individuals who wish to address specific aesthetic concerns. You may be a good candidate if:

  • You have age-related concerns, like wrinkles or folds.
  • You experience facial volume loss, such as sunken cheeks or hollow under-eye areas.
  • You desire fuller, more defined lips.
  • You prefer non-surgical approaches to facial rejuvenation.

Keep in mind that not everyone is suitable for dermal fillers at our Ottawa clinic. These individuals include, but are not limited to:

  • Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • People who have allergies or sensitivities to hyaluronic acid or other ingredients.
  • People with skin infections or conditions, like cold sores, eczema, or psoriasis.
  • Those who have blood disorders or clotting issues.
