Injectable Dermal Filler Solutions for lips, cheeks, jaw, and chin.
Dermal Fillers provide an amazing solution for those looking to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles that add to the aging process. When our skin naturally loses volume over time, it makes us look older and can cause us to lack confidence in the appearance of our cheeks, lips, jowls, jawline, and more. Professionally administered facial fillers can address all of these problem areas, providing a more youthful look and reducing noticeable wrinkles and sagging.
How We Use Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found in every living organism. It provides a healthy connective tissue that supports all our vital organs, including the skin, the largest organ in the body. We lose about 3% of our connective support annually. As our surface skin deteriorates, so does our supportive structure, which deflates and descends.
What Do Dermal Fillers Do?
Dermal fillers address the signs of aging that accompany the natural loss of skin elasticity that occurs as we get older. They are typically gel-like substances injected into the skin that vary depending on the brand and type of filler. Facial fillers can help:
- Smooth lines and reduce the appearance of wrinkles
- Provide greater volume and plump up skin
- Treat issues such as Eleven Lines, Crowsfeet, Forehead Wrinkles/Lines, Bunny Lines, Smoker Lines, and lift eyebrows
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Facial fillers are a popular option because of the many benefits they offer to clients. In addition to being an effective treatment that can last for several months or longer (depending on the type of filler chosen), dermal fillers are attractive to clients as a minimally invasive procedure. Done during a relatively short appointment, these treatments require little to no downtime on the part of the patient and have been proven to be safe and provide natural-looking results.
Our Facial Fillers
At Ottawa Medical Vitality Clinc, Dr. John O. Lee artistically injects the Belotero or Revanesse® safely to restore the volume that has been lost. You immediately see the dramatic effects in the mirror. Your appearance is reclaimed as the hollowness is replenished, the deep lines soften, and the fine lines disappear.
Frequently Asked Questions
Belotero® or Revanesse® are administered by deep injections into carefully selected sites, tunneled under the deep subcutaneous tissue with a cannula, or injected in a more superficial level. Sometimes, it’s injected deeper to the muscles to enhance the muscle effect or superficial to the muscle to weaken the muscle effect. The bruises and adverse effects are minimal in Dr. John O. Lee safe and experienced hands.
If it is administered sparingly, you cannot expect it to last long. Deep bolus injection provides the building block upon which deep subcutaneous and superficial linear injections are administered. Much like haircuts, the latter technique requires maintenance. So, to say it lasts 18 months is an underestimation. The bolus is a long-lasting foundation that continues to stimulate connective tissue formation.
