The Best Dermal Filler in Toronto: What’s Right For You?
What are dermal fillers in Toronto used for?
It could be said that too many great options is a good problem to have. In Toronto, dermal filler has rapidly gained popularity as one of the safest, quickest ways to dramatically improve your appearance and turn back the clock on facial aging. Both men and women today are demanding non-surgical, effective cosmetic treatments, and the medical aesthetic industry has responded with exciting new options to match the demand. Hyaluronic acid (HA) injectables are by far the most commonly used material for facial injection. HA filler is available in a wide variety of formulations with different consistencies and longevity. Some are designed to be fluid, thin, and soft while others create a thick, strong foundation for lifting and sculpting areas of the face like the jawline, cheeks, or nasal bridge.
Improving Facial Structure, Symmetry, Softness, and Radiance
Where Are Fillers Used?
Many people don’t realize that HA is a naturally occurring substance found all over the human body. It lubricates and hydrates the joints, the skin, and even the brain. In the lab, the HA molecules are cross-linked in various ways to create gels that have different thickness and staying power. Eventually, the body will naturally break down and dissolve the material, but HA can also stay where placed between 6 months and 2 years. One of the most desirable benefits that HA carries is that it naturally draws water and boosts collagen production where it is placed, thereby improving the long-term health and vitality of the complexion. Toronto dermal fillers can be placed quickly and easily in the cheeks, lips, under-eye area, nasolabial folds, and even the neck, hands, and nose! The creative and practical uses for this minimally invasive product are almost limitless, and new options are arriving each day. Through the addition of soft, natural volume under the skin’s surface or deeper in the facial tissue, the look of aging, sagging, and wrinkling is instantly diminished. Injectables add fullness where you want to improve facial structure, symmetry, softness, and radiance.

What Will Your Toronto Dermal Filler Treatment Be Like?
What features do you wish to transform?
Your best soft tissue filler option will create a harmonized, natural, long-lasting result. Some people imagine undesirable, “plastic-looking” features when they think of facial injections. With the variety of customized products designed to highlight specific facial features, a skilled physician injector can create a flawless result that appears neither fake nor obvious. You’ll look younger, vibrant, and beautiful, but most people won’t know what you’ve had done unless you decide to let them in on your secret.
When you meet with your injector for a consultation, they will examine your complexion, assess your facial structures and ask you a few questions. One of the most critical questions to answer is, What are your aesthetic goals? Many people seek non-surgical facial treatments to reverse the signs of aging on their face, and you may have a specific area in mind such as the lips or eyes. But more commonly, people don’t know exactly what they need.
Rejuvenation and Facial Harmony
Patients will often say their goal is to “look rested”, “look a little younger”, or “appear more lifted”. To give you the best result, your treatment specialist will be able to map out a plan for overall rejuvenation and facial harmony, then suggest the precise HA material for each area. Sometimes, for instance, a person may feel like they look tired or older but not understand what has changed. For example, many women in their 40’s discover during consultation that the fat pads and natural collagen in their face have diminished, leading to a flattening of the cheeks and hollows under the eyes or mid face. An expert injector sees how various areas can work in harmony to create an overall “soft lift” if that’s what their client desires. Your practitioner may suggest the use of a neuromodulator like Botox in conjunction with hyaluronic acid to relax dynamic muscle movement and smooth away lines.
Whether you’re undergoing a revitalization of one facial feature such as the lips or a more thorough, soft lift procedure, your treatment time will vary from 30 minutes to more than an hour. When you and your doctor are ready to proceed, topical numbing agents may be applied to help minimize the sensation of the needle. The syringes come pre-filled with a blend of HA and anaesthetic medication so that as the product enters a tissue area, numbing sets in. That means only minor discomfort, if any, may be felt during the first fine needle injection, after which most patients are quite comfortable. As well, soft tip cannulas can be used to deliver the product to specific areas with no pain at all.
After treatment, the skin may feel slightly swollen or lumpy and numb. Your injector may massage your face to work the product in, depending on where it is and the type used. You may feel a temporary hardness that naturally softens when the inflammation resolves. Some bruising is possible, though patients are advised to avoid blood-thinning medications or supplements prior to treatment. This dramatically reduces the risk. Sensitive areas of the face such as the lips may react to treatment with temporary swelling for the first 24 to 48 hours. Typically, the full, settled effect of the procedure can be appreciated within a few days.
If you have unwanted wrinkles, lines, facial sagging, or hollows, dermal fillers could dramatically change how you look and feel. A convenient and effective beauty solution for men and women of all ages, find out for yourself why this minimally invasive, non-surgical trend is taking the beauty world by storm.
