What can one syringe of dermal filler do?

December 10, 2018

Wrinkles really are optional in the age of soft tissue filler. Remarkable results are possible for anyone wanting to boost deflated features, fill deep lines, fine wrinkles or furrows, change contours, or add volume—all without the invasiveness or downtime of surgeries.


It is also commonly used as a means of prevention in the valiant war against aging. Not surprisingly, patients considering dermal fillers often have one very practical and common question: how far, exactly, can one syringe of fillers go? The answer is, it depends on your specific esthetic goals.


Lip service: one syringe, or more?


What you will get out of one syringe, or one ml of filler depends on numerous factors, such as the depth of the area being filled and the type of filler being used for your purposes. Although it varies, typically you’ll require one syringe for smile lines alone, and another one for your lips, so injecting multiple places with one syringe of fillers is unlikely. Patients tend to get beautiful results with soft tissue filler injections in their lips, as the area is easily susceptible to increases in volume, and can also effectively correct asymmetries or reduce fine lines. However, due to the vascular nature of the lips, filler does not typically last as long there. Typically, you can expect to return for maintenance lip service after nine months to a year.


Quality over quantity at SpaMedica Toronto


Dr. Mulholland always assesses your face first and then charges you the cost of achieving the specific results you’re looking for, rather than underusing fillers to meet a budget. This way, the goals discussed during your consultation can be skillfully met, without compromising your desired results. However, at SpaMedica in Toronto, the more syringes you require, the less you pay per syringe. As one of Canada’s highest-volume injection centres, we offer our valued soft tissue filler clients competitive, customer-friendly pricing.


The injection types


Juvederm and Restylane are both very popular dermal filler choices. Both use hyaluronic acid, take just minutes to inject, and their effects are seen very shortly after. Their main difference lies in the fact that Juvederm has a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid, making it a smoother compound than Restylane, which is on the grainier, bulkier side. Juvederm gives better results when treating certain areas, such as around the eyes, and is also known to last a bit longer than Restylane, which may be better suited to patients who want to try a treatment on for size before committing long- term. During your consultation, Dr. Mulholland will recommend a specific course or combination of treatments uniquely suited to your face. Should you choose to renew the new you, expect to return once every 12-18 months. Again, this time frame varies on the area you wish to enhance.

Should you wish to get a larger injection that shapes your face, your dermal filler or botox can be injected by a plastic surgeon, and in the case of smaller amounts, a dermatologist or a registered nurse are also options. Dr. Mulholland has personally trained and certified all registered nurses in both botox and dermal filler techniques, and they have years of experience with SpaMedica patients.
