Facial Fillers: Frequently Asked Questions
Wrinkles can form anywhere on the face, and most wrinkles can be addressed with the use of facial dermal fillers or varying types of facial treatments
Ageing is inevitable. Most people first notice the early signs of ageing with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin and the sagging and creases that form in the delicate areas around the eyes and lips. However, wrinkles are not always caused by aging. In fact, everyday activities like talking, laughing, or squinting when reading or looking at your phone can contribute to the formation of wrinkles on the face.
Dermal Fillers add volume and definition by altering contours to help regain a more youthful appearance
What Is A Dermal Filler?
A dermal filler is a non-surgical medical treatment that is injected into the skin to correct the associated signs of ageing seen with the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and creases.
Injectables for the face come in 2 forms: hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring substance in the skin), which creates a filling effect by creating volume to the injection sites, and neuromodulators which relax the injected muscle(s). Both can reduce and improve the characteristics of the skin that is affected by the signs of aging. Dermal fillers have changed the way we see beauty in the face and sometimes in the body. The opportunity to adjust and enhance facial features with the use of dermal fillers has dramatically reformed the way our doctors treat their patients when it comes to cosmetic procedures. Our doctors believe in the importance of providing all the necessary information to his patients so they will feel comfortable in the process of receiving the right type of injectable filler products exclusive for the various areas of the face.
Below are some frequently asked questions about the reasons why we need different facial fillers for different areas of the face.
Why Do We Need A Different Injectable For Different Areas Of The Face?
Some areas of the face are more sensitive and more prone to disintegration than other areas. For example, the muscles around the eye area are delicate and more likely to wrinkle faster than the larger muscles like the masseter muscles that cover the jaw. The different components of the facial muscles determine the type of fillers that are used along with other factors like the severity of wrinkles measured by the depth and age of the wrinkles.
The different facial muscles on the face have different mechanisms in the way they move and how they are affected by the aging process
Is There A Universal Facial Filler For Most Areas?
Yes, our doctors like to use Teosyal Global Action for the injection of multiple sites on the face. Teosyal Global Action is indicated for medium line correction treatments. That means that it can decrease the depth and appearance of wrinkles that are developed but are not too severe. This is an ideal dermal filler for men and women over the age of 30.
Which Facial Filler Is Used For The Eye Area?
Our doctors use Redensity ll to treat the eye area because he has seen incredible long-lasting results in his patients with the use of this type of dermal filler.
What Filler Is Used For The Lips?
Teosyal Kiss one of the most effective ways to add volume and plump up the lips. Teosyal Kiss has been specially formulated for the delicate lip area, and its components effectively cross-link underneath the skin once it is injected. The cross-linking results in a product for the lips that is stronger and more resistant to being broken down, thus lasting longer. Teosyal Kiss for the lips can last anywhere from 6 to 9 months with maintenance top-ups usually required after the 3 to 4 month mark. In addition to Teosyal Kiss, doctors also use Restylane, Teosyal Global Action, Juvéderm, and Volbella for lip enhancement procedures.

What Makes Facial Fillers Different From One Another?
The cross-linking abilities of hyaluronic acids are what make the difference in the durability and longevity of the types of fillers that are formulated for the various areas of facial fillers
In general, the longer the product stays in the skin, the more cross-linking abilities it has. Cross-linking refers to the chemical compound structures that remain in the skin after hyaluronic acid injections. The injection area and the depth of the injection are also factors that determine how quickly the body absorbs the dermal filler.
Which Facial Filler Lasts The Longest?
From the Teosyal range, Teosyal Ultra Deep and Teosyal Ultimate are longer lasting products for the enhancement of facial contours. They volumize check bones, the chin, and the temporal area and are useful in treating very deep wrinkles in thick skin. Other brands of dermal fillers like Volbella and VolumaLift can last up to a year or more!
What Can Be Done To Remove Facial Fillers?
Hyaluronidase is a medical-grade enzyme that degrades facial fillers. Facial fillers can be dissolved in about an hour after hyaluronidase is injected into the face. Hyaluronidase is the safest, most effective way to remove dermal fillers.
Are There Long Lasting Facial Fillers?
Although long lasting facial fillers do exist, the use of long lasting dermal fillers is strictly prohibited in Canada. Facial fillers are clinically tested frequently, and the former fillers were removed from the Canadian markets after the emergence of patients reporting abnormalities.
