To learn more about fillers and what they can do for you, please continue to read through this article.
What Are Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a soft tissue filler that is injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles and fine lines. These injections increase hydration in the skin and improve facial volume through the use of hyaluronic acid, creating a plumper and younger look overall. This substance occurs naturally in the body and is responsible for attracting and holding water molecules in the skin. Fillers also stimulate the production of collagen in the body, a protein naturally produced by our systems that provides needed structure to the skin.
How Can These Injections Help Me?
The older we get, the less our bodies produce hyaluronic acid and collagen, resulting in wrinkled skin and an aged appearance. By reintroducing this hydrating substance back into the body, and stimulating the production of collagen, these fillers can add much-needed hydration and structure to the epidermis, creating younger looking and feeling skin. Therefore, these filler injections can help you reduce the signs of ageing and counteract volume loss to areas in the face and body.
Where Can I Place Injections?
Filler injections are clinically proven for the treatment of the face, lips, hands and feet. Our medical practitioners at our Markham facility have the skill, training, and experience to assess your skin and facial bone structure to create a treatment plan, with precise application of the filler injections to achieve the best aesthetic and natural looking results.
Fine lines and wrinkles across the face and on the hands and feet can be treated. Smile lines and jowls are also popular areas for treatment. They can bring volume back to the sunken in under eye areas to produce a more refreshing look. Fillers can also be applied to the lips and cheeks for enhancement, creating a more voluminous look at the application site.
*Results May Vary*
How Long Do Treatments Take?
An injection appointment typically takes as little as 30 minutes to complete. Results are instant, with immediate improvements taking place at the site of injection. Our fillers can be mixed with local anesthetics, such as lidocaine, to make the injection process more comfortable for our patients.
How Long Does Filler Last?
Fillers offer temporary improvements to the skin, as the substance is eventually absorbed by the body’s metabolic system, the effects will fade. Depending on your skin type, and the filler products used, results can last anywhere between 6 months to 18 months.
Are Fillers Safe?
At LightTouch, we predominantly use Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Emervel® brand fillers as they offer safe application and the best results for our clients. Juvederm® is the number one recommended filler in Canada and is used by doctors around the world to facilitate rejuvenation of the skin, with full FDA approval. Dermal filler treatments are generally well tolerated with little to no downtime. However mild to moderate swelling, redness and bruising can occur in some cases.
