Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are a hugely popular anti-aging treatment that instantly provides volume and lifts the skin, helping it to appear smoother, youthful, and contoured. There is no downtime whatsoever, and with almost immediate results, it is easy to understand why it is the go-to anti-aging treatment for so many of our clients.

As we age, the skin loses its natural elasticity and becomes thinner. Exposure to the sun can dull the appearance of the skin while various changes to the face can leave you with lines and folds in places which were previously taught and firm.

    •  Frown lines / Stress lines / Worry lines appear on the forehead.

    •  Folds develop between the nose and the corners of your mouth. 

    •  Smile lines start to become more prominent.

    •  Your jaw can sag into jowls

    •  Fine lines / Crow’s feet can develop around the eye area.

At time goes by, you lose more collagen and hyaluronic acid than your body can regenerate naturally, and this is one of the primary factors of aging that is visible for all to see on our face.

It is now possible to reverse these very visible signs of aging and correct wrinkles and folds in the face with a simple and straightforward dermal filler treatment. We have been administering these treatments to clients for a long time and use Restylane and Revanesse.

We carefully selected this as our product of choice because it is the closest product to the hyaluronic acid that is found naturally within the body. It also offers better results with less product when compared to other dermal fillers in the marketplace.

This meticulous approach to product development ensures our clients get a targeted dermal filler treatment that is designed by experts and delivered by professionals. 




Hyaluronic acid is a complex molecule occurring naturally in the body. It hydrates by drawing water into the outer layers from deep within the skin. It holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water and makes skin plumper, softer and smoother.

Dermal Fillers are injected directly into the skin on the specific area of concern and instantly enhance the supply of hyaluronic acid to the skin. It is a very soft gel that is made from a highly stabilized form of this compound. The gels used are considered to be tissue-friendly and are the closest you can get to naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid.

Facial expressions are not impacted when you use a dermal filler and the typical results from the treatment last on average, between 6-9 months.

Our skin is remarkable, protecting our bodies from the outside world and repairing itself every day, regenerating regularly. However, with age, lifestyle and environmental factors – like sun damage and smoking – impact the condition of our skin.

The Restylane range of products is designed to help:

    •  Restore a youthful-looking appearance by filling lines and wrinkles or adding volume

    •  Enhance facial balance and harmony

    •  Smooth wrinkles in specific facial areas, such as the cheeks, mouth/nose folds, lips and around the eyes

    •  Refresh and improve the smoothness, elasticity and appearance of your skin for a radiant-looking glow

The broad range of Restylane products allows your healthcare professional to tailor a treatment program to your individual needs.

The Restylane range of products are created with two patented technologies, NASHA™ and OBT™

    •  NASHA™ technology creates a precise, firmer gel texture intended for a more pronounced lift.

    •  OBT (Optimal Balance Technology) creates a softer gel texture, allowing for smoother integration into the tissue for natural-looking results.

Yes absolutely. When you search for a top dermal filler practitioner, it is important to choose a company that is well-established and who can clearly demonstrate their experience and knowledge in the skincare solutions industry. At the First Ave Medical Spa, our client’s wellbeing and safety are paramount, and each of our expert practitioners exceeds any regulatory or training requirements. Our clinics are remarkably clean, safe medical environments and all of our dermal filler treatments are handled by highly-regarded professionals in their field.

As with all cosmetic procedures, there is no finite number of months or years a product such as this is guaranteed to last for. However, on average, a dermal filler will last between 9-18 months. Most patients will undergo an annual top-up of their dermal fillers.

Before you have the dermal filler administered, a very mild numbing cream is placed directly onto the area that will be treated. This is not necessary, and the anesthetic cream is merely for your comfort.
Botox is FDA and Health Canada approved and considered to be a safe and effective method to achieve a more youthful appearance and reduce lines on the facial area.

You are able to carry on with your day and can even apply make-up to your skin following a dermal filler treatment. It is perfectly normal to expect a small amount of swelling or redness in the treated area. Most clients report that this subsides within 1-2 days after injection into the skin and within a week after injection into the lips.

The most frequently chosen areas for Dermal Fillers include chin, eyes, mouth, hands, décolletage, nose-bridge, lips, and cheeks.
