Dermal Fillers in Calgary
Plump up facial hollows, reduce
frown or laugh lines, and give you a more youthful appearance
Sun damage, stress, gravity, and other factors such as smoking cause the skin to sag and appear more loose over time. Areas of the face and neck, in particular around the jaw line, are especially prone to the aging process. These changes are the gradual result of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin breaking down. The resulting wrinkles and other signs of aging can make individuals "feel older" than they really are. Dermal fillers – which fill out the skin or the tissue under the skin – are used to smooth out wrinkles.
Restore Volume with Dermal Fillers
Fillers are often used to restore volume that has been lost, whether through aging or weight loss. They can also be used to augment features for a desired look. Popular options include cheek fillers and lip fillers.
Dermal fillers are a temporary fix (they last for different amounts of time), but they are a simple procedure that can generally be done in an hour or less. They can plump up facial hollows, reduce frown or laugh lines, and give you a more youthful appearance with minimal downtime.
Natural Hyaluronic Fillers
Our clinic uses Hyaluronic acid – based fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human skin. It has the ability to attract and bond to water molecules, which helps the skin maintain volume. It helps keep the skin firm, and plays an important role in the shape of your features and the lubrication of your joints. We use it to add volume to lips and cheeks, and to fill in deep wrinkles or to contour a face in a non-surgical manner.
How long do fillers last?
The dermal fillers used at our clinic are made of a soft gel consisting of non-animal hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that naturally occurs in the human body, and it is found in our skin. It helps hydrate and adds volume to the skin. It is naturally broken down by our own bodies over time. Dermal fillers last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on a number of factors including the patient’s age, area treated, type of filler used, quantity of filler used, and lifestyle.
