It is a com­mon mis­con­cep­tion that der­mal fillers in­ject for­eign chem­i­cals into the face. In fact, hyaluro­nan is a nor­mal com­po­nent of the skin's der­mal makeup. Hyaluro­nan is the same nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring sugar mol­e­cule that is found in your body and it's job is to hy­drate, sup­port and as­sist with bi­o­log­i­cal pro­cesses. As we age, its nat­u­ral ef­fec­tive­ness di­min­ishes, caus­ing skin to be­come sal­low and creased. For my treat­ment plan, der­mal fillers are part of an over­all ap­proach to re­store lost vol­ume, lift the cheeks, fill in hol­lows around the eyes, and re­store sup­port to the un­der­ly­ing skin struc­tures. There is no down­time, although some ex­pe­ri­ence mi­nor bruis­ing or swelling - I did not.

DR. LUPIN ON DER­MAL FILLERS

“One of the high­est sat­is­fac­tion treat­ments is ap­pli­ca­tion of der­mal fillers to ad­dress ag­ing con­cerns such as ‘the tired look', and achiev­ing a younger look. These mul­ti­pur­pose fillers work to re­store lost vol­ume by lift­ing the skin and con­tour­ing about the cheeks, nose and jaw­line. They help strengthen the skin by stim­u­lat­ing our bod­ies' nat­u­ral abil­ity to make its own hyaluronic acid, col­la­gen and elastin, and they are fun­da­men­tal to help erase sur­face lines and even out acne scars. Full face con­tour­ing, ap­proach­ing and some­times bet­ter­ing the re­sults of what used to be only the prov­ince of surgery, can of­ten be achieved. The re­sults are im­me­di­ate and long last­ing.

Fun­da­men­tal to cre­at­ing beau­ti­ful, nat­u­ral re­sults is tak­ing care to know and re­spect each per­son's par­tic­u­lar needs and ap­pre­ci­ate the fine dif­fer­ences in anatomy. In Canada, we are for­tu­nate to have over 20 years' ex­pe­ri­ence with the most pop­u­lar hyaluronic fillers. Resty­lane, Juve­d­erm, Belotero, Teosyal, Re­vanesse and Princess are good ex­am­ples. Some of the hap­pi­est mo­ments that brighten my day are the ‘wow's and tears of joy that my pa­tient's ex­press when they look in the mir­ror to see the magic of der­mal fillers.”

MY TAKE ON DER­MAL FILLERS

“I don't like nee­dles - let's get that straight. But as far as nee­dles go, this was very tol­er­a­ble - easy in fact. I felt the pricks and nee­dle pres­sure more in the most sen­si­tive skin ar­eas around my eyes and mouth. Although it does take a few weeks or months to see the full ef­fects, I love that with der­mal fillers, some of the re­sults were im­me­di­ate. The deep apos­tro­phe marks (an ed­i­tor's curse) be­tween my eyes and at the sides of my nose are gone. The sunken hol­lows be­low my eyes are vis­i­bly less­ened, my cheek­bones have gained a slightly new def­i­ni­tion and the youth­ful lit­tle up­turn at the cor­ners of my mouth is back all in a very min­i­mal­is­tic, nat­u­ral look­ing way.”
