What Are HA Dermal Fillers?

HA (hyaluronic acid) dermal fillers are a revolutionary non-surgical cosmetic treatment designed to restore volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial features. These injectable fillers are made of a substance naturally produced in the body, providing a safe and effective solution for achieving a more youthful appearance.

How Do HA Dermal Fillers Work?

HA dermal fillers work by replenishing the natural hyaluronic acid in the skin, which diminishes as we age. When injected into specific areas, these fillers attract and retain moisture, plumping the skin and smoothing out wrinkles. The result is a refreshed, rejuvenated, and natural-looking appearance.

What To expect

Here’s how we take care of you before, during, and after your treatment.
Before Your Treatment
  • Schedule your treatment at least two weeks before any important events.
  • If you get a blemish in the treatment area, reschedule your appointment until it's cleared up.
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory medications such as Advil and Aleve for one week before treatment.
During Your Treatment
  • Arrive at the office with face washed and without makeup
  • A numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to ensure minimal discomfort
  • Most treatments are performed in under one hour
After Your Treatment
  • You will see a difference immediately, but fillers take about two weeks to settle (integrate into the tissue and hydrate).
  • You will experience minor redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness in the area treated, which will resolve within a week.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do dermal fillers last?

Dermal fillers typically provide results that last between 6 to 18 months, depending on the specific product used and individual factors.

Will I require maintenance treatments?

The body naturally absorbs dermal fillers over time. Therefore, patients do require maintenance treatments. Typically a maintenance appointment is needed every 6-12 months depending on your age, the area treated, the amount and type of filler used, and lifestyle.

Are dermal filler injections painful?

We prioritize your comfort, and most patients report minimal discomfort during the procedure. Topical numbing cream will be applied to enhance your comfort further.

Are there any side effects or risks?

Dermal fillers are considered very safe. The most common reactions are redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness. These are generally mild and settle in approximately one week or sooner. Other side effects, such as vascular occlusions, are very rare.

Can dermal fillers be reversed if I'm not satisfied?

In most cases, certain dermal fillers can be partially reversed using an enzyme called hyaluronidase.

Can I combine dermal fillers with other treatments?

Absolutely! Dermal fillers can be combined with other cosmetic treatments like Botox, chemical peels, or laser treatments to achieve amazing results.

How soon can I see the results after treatment?

After the treatment, you'll notice immediate improvements and the full effects will become even more apparent as any initial swelling subsides.

Are dermal fillers only for the face?

No! Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance other areas of the body, such as the hands, decolletage, or even non-surgical butt lifts.

Can dermal fillers be used to treat under-eye bags or dark circles?

Yes, specific dermal fillers can help address concerns like under-eye bags or hollows, reducing the appearance of tiredness and rejuvenating the under-eye area.

Are dermal fillers permanent?

Dermal fillers are not permanent. However, they offer long-lasting results, and touch-up treatments can help maintain your desired look.

How long is the recovery time following a dermal filler treatment?

The beauty of dermal fillers is that there's minimal downtime. You may experience some swelling, redness, or bruising, but these effects usually subside within a few days. Typically, you can return to your daily routine within a day. However, we always advise patients not to schedule a filler appointment right before an important event.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Yes, dermal fillers are very safe when administered by trained professionals. Our skilled injectors have extensive training and experience and only use Health Canada-approved products.

Who Should Avoid HA Dermal Fillers?

While HA dermal fillers are generally safe for most individuals, there are a few considerations to keep in mind.

Allergies or hypersensitivity: Individuals with a known allergy or hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid or any components of HA dermal fillers should avoid treatment.

Active infection or skin condition: If you have an active skin infection, inflammation, or a chronic skin condition in the treatment area, it is generally recommended to postpone dermal filler treatment until the condition has resolved.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding: The safety of HA dermal fillers during pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been extensively studied. It is generally advised to avoid treatment during these periods as a precautionary measure.

Autoimmune disorders: Certain autoimmune disorders, such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, may affect the body's response to dermal fillers. Individuals with these conditions should consult with their healthcare provider before undergoing treatment.

Bleeding disorders or use of blood thinners: If you have a bleeding disorder or are taking medications that increase the risk of bleeding, such as aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or anticoagulants, your healthcare provider will evaluate the risks and benefits of dermal filler treatment.

Recent cosmetic procedures: It is generally recommended to wait for a period of time after other cosmetic procedures, such as laser treatments or chemical peels, before undergoing dermal filler treatment. This allows the skin to heal and reduces the risk of complications.

Previous adverse reactions: If you have experienced a significant adverse reaction to dermal fillers in the past, such as infection, granulomas, or excessive swelling, it may be advisable to avoid further treatment or explore alternative options.

Can I get dermal fillers if I have sensitive skin?

Yes, dermal fillers are generally safe for individuals with sensitive skin. We'll assess your skin type and recommend the most suitable filler.

Can I exercise after getting dermal fillers?

We recommend avoiding intense physical activity for the first 24-48 hours after treatment to minimize swelling and bruising.

Will I look overfilled or unnatural?

Too much filler can result in facial features looking pillowy or unnatural. However, when the correct filler is used appropriately and placed in the right location, the result is a natural, more youthful appearance. We aim to achieve natural-looking results that enhance your features, not exaggerate them. Our team has an eye for detail and strives for balanced and harmonious outcomes.

Are there age restrictions for dermal filler treatments?

We treat patients 18 years of age and older.

Can dermal fillers be used to correct acne scars?

Yes, certain dermal fillers can help improve the appearance of acne scars, depending on their depth and severity.

What is the difference between HA dermal fillers, Sculptra, and Radiesse?

HA Dermal Fillers, Sculptra, and Radiesse are all popular dermal fillers, but they differ in composition and mechanism of action.

HA dermal fillers are gel compounds containing a sugar molecule called hyaluronic acid, naturally found in the skin. Once injected, hyaluronic acid attracts and retains moisture providing immediate volume and hydration.

Sculptra is a dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible and biodegradable compound. Unlike HA fillers, Sculptra stimulates the body's natural collagen production. The effects are gradual and can last up to two years.

Radiesse is a dermal filler composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a gel. Similar to Sculptra, it stimulates collagen production while providing immediate volume.

While all three options can deliver impressive results, the choice depends on individual needs and goals. HA fillers provide instant outcomes with a range of products available for various concerns and areas. Sculptra and Radiesse gradually improve volume and skin quality due to collagen stimulation.

Do you offer financing options for dermal filler treatments?

Yes, we offer flexible financing options to make your desired treatments more affordable. For information on our patient financing options, click here.
