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.

What is a Dermal Filler?

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.

Frequently asked questions

  • Are dermal fillers safe?
    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.
  • How long do dermal fillers last?
    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.
  • What happens before I get dermal fillers injection?
    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.
  • What can I do after the injection?
    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.
  • Where can dermal fillers be applied?
    The most frequently chosen areas for Dermal Fillers include chin, eyes, mouth, hands, décolletage, nose-bridge, lips, and cheeks.
