Our clinic offers lip fillers and dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are made up of a cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that aids in rebuilding lost volume and stimulating collagen synthesis.

As we age and gravity takes over, our skin begins to sag, we lose volume through fat loss and bone deterioration. Dermal fillers can replace this lost volume and provide a soft lift to the face.

The results of a dermal filler treatment are immediate with improving results over 2-4 weeks as the filler draws in water for added volume. One of the bonuses of hyaluronic acid filler is that as it activates collagen synthesis in the skin, less correction is needed with regular follow-up treatments.

Dermal Fillers are sold by the syringe.

Restylane Skinboosters

Skin boosters offer an injectable solution aimed at enhancing skin quality by hydrating, rejuvenating, and revitalizing its appearance. Differing from traditional dermal fillers which focus on adding volume to specific facial areas, skin boosters aim to replenish skin hydration levels and stimulate collagen production. They are commonly administered to areas such as the face, neck, décolletage, and hands, where signs of aging, dehydration, or sun damage are often visible.

Restylane Skinboosters, for instance, are ideal for individuals seeking deep hydration and overall skin improvement. They target dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, and tired-looking skin, while also addressing issues like reduced elasticity, uneven skin tone, and visible pores.

This non-invasive solution promises minimal discomfort and minimal downtime, ensuring long-lasting results for a refreshed and youthful appearance.

Common treatment areas include:

  • Face: Cheeks, temples, forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth.
  • Neck and Décolletage: To improve skin texture and firmness.
  • Hands: To rejuvenate and hydrate the skin.

Side effects or possible risks to Dermal Fillers injections?

  • Redness, bruising, and swelling
  • Angioedema: This is a skin reaction. Small blood vessels in the subcutaneous and/or submucosal tissues leak watery liquid through their walls and cause swelling. It is most often characterized by an abrupt and short-lived swelling of the skin and mucous membranes. All parts of the body may be affected but swelling most often occurs around the eyes and lips.
  • Vascular / Retinal Occlusion: A vascular incident may be caused by vascular occlusion, compression, or injury to the blood vessel.
  • Misplaced Product (Tyndall): Tyndall effect is the bluish hue that is visible within the skin caused by too superficial placement of HA filler.
  • Infection
  • Non-Inflammatory / Inflammatory Nodules: This adverse event usually presents itself as red and/or thickened nodules arising in the injected sites and may persist for several weeks or months.
  • Non-Inflammatory (Foreign Body Granuloma)

Contraindications and cautions for treatment

  • There are no available clinical data (on efficiency and/or tolerance) about injection into an area that has been treated with another filling product.
  • There is similarly no available clinical data about injection in clients with a history or a declared autoimmune disease.
    • The practitioner should then decide to inject case-by-case, according to the nature of the disease and the associated treatment, and to ensure a follow-up appointment. It is recommended that these patients undergo a preliminary dual test. Practitioners should refrain from injecting the product if the disease is active.
  • Patients undergoing anti-coagulant treatment must be warned of the increased risk of hematomas and bleeding during the injections.
  • Patients with a history of the streptococcal disease (recurrent angina, acute rheumatoid arthritis) will be subjected to a dual test before receiving any injection.
  • Patients should not apply makeup for 12 hours after the injection.
  • Sensitivity to hyaluronic acid or lidocaine.
  • The safety of HA treatments during pregnancy or in infants and children has not been established so avoid using HA on women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Do not inject HA into blood vessels (intravascular). Products introduced into the dermal vessels may cause vascular occlusion, infarction, or embolic phenomena.
  • Local necrosis is a rare event that has been reported following dermal injection. Most necrosis reported through post-marketing surveillance has occurred in the glabella. It is thought to result from an injury, obstruction, or compromise of the blood vessels.
  • HA must not be used in areas presenting cutaneous inflammatory and/or infectious processes (such as acne).
  • HA must not be used in association with laser therapy, chemical peeling, IPL, or dermabrasion.
    • It is advisable to wait four weeks after a HA treatment to proceed with IPL, laser resurfacing, or any other procedure that may generate heat and cause increased thermal degradation of the product
