What is Dermal Fillers?
As we age, our skin loses its volume, hydration, and elasticity, all of which we need in order to promote a youthful, healthy-looking appearance.
Injectable Filler is used to give volume and create contours on the face where they are needed or where the volume has disappeared with age. Often called Dermal Fillers or Facial Fillers, these products are temporary and non-surgical and can result in a younger, refreshed, and revitalized appearance. Our doctors use only the top-rated and best hyaluronic products available in Canada today, such as Juvederm, Teosyal Ultimate, Teosyal Global, Redensity II, Restylane, Voluma, Volbella and Volift. All of these dermal fillers have an excellent safety record and are approved by FDA.
While the two fillers share similarities, they also have their differences. Learn more about these, as well as the costs and expected results, so you know which hyaluronic-based dermal filler is best for you.
