We’ve put together this guide to help you understand more about the many filler alternatives we have available, as well as the kinds of effects you may anticipate from them.

The Facts about Dermal Fillers
The effects of aging on the skin include volume loss, wrinkle development, and skin drooping. Collagen and elastin fibers degrade throughout time, giving our faces a weary, elderly appearance. With facial fillers and JUVÉDERM, however, the look of the face may be regenerated to its youthfulness.
What is an Injectable Dermal Filler?
An injectable dermal filler is a hyaluronic acid-based filler that is injected into the soft tissue under the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a chemical that occurs naturally in your body. Facial fillers are utilized to restore volume to your face that has been lost due to age or weight loss, giving you a more youthful and rejuvenated look. They may also be used to plump up regions of your face that are naturally thin, such as your lips. Dermal fillers may also be utilized to keep your current look. This will minimize the indications of aging in a non-surgical, minimally invasive manner.
Our dermal fillers expert in Toronto, employs the finest and safest hyaluronic materials available to achieve the greatest possible outcomes.
What to Expect When Getting Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are an injectable filler that can be utilized throughout areas of the face. It’s important to remember that since this is a cosmetic treatment, following your esthetician’s advice and instructions before your treatment is highly important.
You must cease using any anti-inflammatory medicines, such as ibuprofen or naproxen, as well as blood-thinning medications, like aspirin, before having your dermal filler treatment. This will help to avoid bruising as a result of the treatment.
Your dermal filler surgery may take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, so you won’t have to take too much time out of your schedule, but you should expect some swelling after the process. The majority of the swelling will go away within the first 24 hours, but you may still be puffy for up to a week following your injections.
Which Facial Filler Is The Best?
Now onto the question that most of our patients ask us at Visage Medical Spa: “Which facial filler is the best for you?”. Soft tissue fillers or injectables come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Each filler has its own set of features that make it suited for usage in particular regions of the face for various outcomes.
Our experts achieve natural-looking results by using only the finest ingredients and the safest practices. To obtain the greatest and most natural-looking results, our injectors employ a mix of products consisting of JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Perlane®, and Emervel®.

How long Does Filler Last for?
You should keep in mind that hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring component in your body, thus it will be metabolized by your body over time. Depending on where you had the filler injected, injectable fillers may last anywhere from 6 to 18 months.
The Following Are Some Injectable Filler Lifespans:
Because of how frequently we move our lips, they have the lowest dermal filler duration. Due to the mobility, the filler is metabolized more quickly than in other locations, which implies it will last roughly 6 months.
Under the Eyes:
The filler might last up to a year under the eyes.
These lines should last around 6 months, or in most cases as long as your lips.
Cheeks and Midface:
This region will have the highest life expectancy, ranging from 9 to 18 months.
Suggestions for Extending the Life of your Filler
Keeping Sun Exposure to a Minimum:
Dermal fillers may be damaged by the same UV rays that harm your skin. Outside, make sure you’re wearing proper UV protection.
To keep your skin in good shape, make sure you use high-quality face cleansers and lotions at home.
Life and Stress:
A dermal injection’s lifetime might be shortened by stress in certain cases.

What are the differences between JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Perlane®, and Emervel®?
All of these injectable fillers are based on hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a chemical that occurs naturally in your skin. It is one of the most extensively researched and widely used injectable fillers in North America and across the globe.
Hyaluronic acid face fillers help plump up regions like the lips by absorbing water from the surrounding tissues. They also aid to reduce apparent lines and wrinkles by increasing collagen production. These dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid are non-allergenic and reversible.
Which Dermal Filler Is Your Best Option?
We feel that each situation is unique, thus we provide a selection of fillers to give the best possible outcomes. Which section of the face is getting the filler, what look you are trying to achieve, how long you want the filler to last, and whether you have any allergies are some of the criteria we evaluate when selecting the best filler for you. Dr. DuPéré works with his patients to figure out which products, such as the dermal filler JUVÉDERM, can help them reach their goals.

Treatment Areas for JUVÉDERM®
JUVÉDERM is used to fill lines and restore a youthful look in several regions of the face. There are a variety of formulae that may be used to attain diverse outcomes. JUVÉDERM may be used to lift and shape the cheeks, making them plump and sensuous, since they lose volume with age. The face seems to be fuller after these places have been injected.
Smiling may cause fine lines on the face that reach from the nostrils to the corners of the mouth, known as parentheses lines. While this is a normal wrinkle, it might make it difficult for you to smile. These lines may be softened back to their young look using JUVÉDERM, removing the unmistakable lines of aging.
Plump lips are a desired attribute for people who have seen their lips thinning with age or who have naturally thin lips regardless of age. Depending on the product used, a JUVÉDERM fill rejuvenates the lips by filling and plumping them or providing small volume while smoothing vertical lip lines.
Who Is A JUVÉDERM® Treatment Candidate?
A JUVÉDERM treatment may help those with moderate to severe wrinkles, creases, and volume loss related to aging or unattractive facial characteristics. If you’ve had an allergic response to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins before, JUVÉDERM isn’t for you.
The procedure’s safety for people under the age of 18, pregnant, or nursing has yet to be determined, and no study has been conducted on those with pigmentation problems or extensive scarring.
To assess your candidacy for a JUVÉDERM surgery, you should speak with a qualified plastic surgeon such as Dr. DuPéré. Fillers have a varying effect on individual patients based on their qualities and the goals they aim to achieve.
What can you Expect from JUVÉDERM® Treatment?
JUVÉDERM is a clinically validated treatment for fine lines, providing volume to the cheekbones, and smoothing wrinkles. The effects may continue up to a year, with subsequent procedures requiring less filler. JUVÉDERM is a smooth consistency gel that is flexible, producing a natural appearing outcome as compared to other filler solutions.
