Since there are different types of dermal fillers, their cost varies. During your SpaMedica consultation, you can discuss different dermal filler options, your budget, and your aesthetic goals.
Dermal fillers are a type of nonsurgical injection that can treat a myriad of aesthetic facial concerns. These injections are made just under the skin, and there are several kinds of dermal fillers.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid sugar gel polymer, the dermal filler used to fill in facial contours. Dermal fillers are injected into the treatment site and may add volume.
Juvederm is typically injected around the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth. It can also be used on the lips and cheeks.
Revanesse dermal filler treatments use hyaluronic acid.
The TEOSYAL injectable filler line can replace the hyaluronic acid your skin has lost. TEOSYAL injectable filler products have a high concentration of cross-linked HA, resulting in results that appear for a long time. At SpaMedica, Redensity HA gel filler is used most commonly for treating concerns around the eyes.
Volumalift is a soft tissue filler injection used to replace the loss of facial fat.
Lip injections are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to increase the volume of your lips. Fillers usually contain a hyaluronic gel and come in various brands, including Revanesse, Restylane, Perlane, or Juvederm.
A Radiesse treatment refers to a dermal filler that is a particulate stimulant. Radiesse comprises tiny, microscopic particles of calcium hydroxyapatite dissolved in a suspension. These little particles act as a “biological stimulant” for your body to make collagen around the particles.
Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler biostimulant that contains poly-L-lactic acid (a sugar polymer) and is used to stimulate collagen production or add volume to the face and buttocks.
Recovery typically lasts one to two days, but you can return to normal activities immediately following your dermal filler treatment. Many people schedule their treatment during their lunchtime and return to work directly after – which is why it is often called a “lunch hour treatment.”
The length of your treatment time depends on the technique you choose, your aesthetic goals with dermal fillers, and the size of the area being treated. However, on average, your treatment will take less than an hour.
Whether you are a good candidate or not will be decided during your consultation, but to determine your eligibility beforehand, you should:
Most risks associated with dermal fillers are typically a result of the filler accidentally being injected into a blood vessel. This will likely not occur when you’re in the hands of an experienced team like the group of nurses and doctors at SpaMedica.
Other risks and side effects include:
Most side effects will subside after 1-2 days, but it is uncommon to experience any risks at all.
At SpaMedica, our team of clinical professionals will work closely with you to determine your specific facial and body concerns, and to choose what type of dermal filler will result in your desired outcome. Our staff are experienced, talented and highly professional, and will perform your dermal filler treatment in SpaMedica’s state-of-the-art facilities. In addition, staff and clinicians are available to answer any questions that may arise during your recovery period.
After your consultation, the team at SpaMedica will help you determine which areas you want to focus your treatment on and which dermal filler treatment you would like to pursue. A thin needle injects small amounts of filler under the treatment area during your treatment. The needle may pinch, but the small pain will quickly subside. You may have fillers injected in several areas, but the process will take less than an hour to complete.
SpaMedica has some of the most experienced physician and nurse injectors and one of Canada’s widest selection of dermal fillers. At your consultation, your consult coordinator will review the best combination of dermal fillers to provide the results you are looking for.
SpaMedica is Canada’s largest, oldest, and most respected private cosmetic laser center. Why are there so many dermal fillers available? The answer is simple: soft tissue filler results are often only achieved by the customized combination of two or more of the dermal fillers products that work in different yet synergistic and summative ways. The variety of fillers offered by SpaMedica include:
You can also combine your dermal filler treatment with a body contouring treatment like CoolSculpting.
To reduce bruising, swelling, and redness in the treatment area, you should:
