Dermal Fillers can replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, plump the lips, and restore a more youthful appearance. Learn all about injectable filler treatments below.
EXPERTS IN INJECTABLE FILLERS
As you age, your skin loses elasticity. It just can’t snap back into place quite as easily. And as your skin loses elasticity, it can often begin to sag, creating wrinkles and excess skin. In other words, this sagging skin can make you look far older than you feel. Think about a balloon that’s run out of air—that’s basically what happens to your skin as it loses elasticity. That’s why a group of cosmetic surgeons developed what are called injectable fillers, sometimes referred to as injectable volumizers. This includes famous brand names such as Voluma and Juvederm, not to mention Restylane or Radiesse.
Injectable fillers in most cases function just how they sound like they’d work: they fill lost volume. They blow the balloon back up to make the skin look smooth. Some injectable fillers do this using a substance call hyaluronic acid or a formulation of that substance. While it may have a somewhat intimidating name, hyaluronic acid is actually a chemical found within your own body already. Adding hyaluronic acid gets your natural collagen processes jumpstarted, not only providing volume but also helping to generate a collagen lattice to give that volume some structure.

A VARIETY OF USES
Time has proven that injectable fillers are a versatile group of procedures. Indeed, injectable fillers are a primary component of many of the innovative non-surgical treatments available in the world today.
Fillers that use hyaluronic acid are generally reversible, though those that don’t are not. Some fillers will last roughly six months, while others can last years. Some fillers are designed for deep tissue while others are best at targeting more shallow areas. The filler that works best for you will depend greatly on your desired results and how long you’d like those results to last.
SUITABLE PATIENTS FOR FILLERS
In general, any prominent wrinkle and skin crease can be improved with filler injection. The most common facial regions for treatment are the smile lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth (“nasolabial folds”), fine lip lines and lip augmentation, the circles under the lower eyelids, the cheeks, and the jawline in front of jowls. Fillers can also be used to reduce scars from acne or trauma. If you have any of these complaints, fillers may help. Ideal patients should also be using no blood thinning medications around the time of the injection, to reduce the chance of bruising.
After a thorough discussion of your goals, and a complete exam of your facial features, you will be give an ice pack to hold against the areas to be injected. Rubbing alcohol will then clean these areas, and a local anesthetic will be used to numb the injection sites. The appropriate amount of filler will then be injected carefully, and molded to achieve the desired result. You will be able to follow the progress, so you are happy with the final amount of product used. Further application of ice will reduce any minimal soreness from the injections.

Frequently asked questions
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable gels made from hyaluronic acid, a sugar found naturally in your body. There are many fillers on the market, each with differing properties. At Sherlase Clinic, we offer a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers, including Juvederm, Teosyal, Stylage and Restylane.
How do Dermal Fllers work?
How can Dermal Fillers help me achieve my aesthetic goals?
Injectable fillers can be used in many ways to restore the skin’s vitality or freshen up your appearance. At Sherlase Clinic, our clients frequently choose fillers in order to soften fine lines around the mouth and nose, plump lips, restore lost fullness to cheeks, chin or temples, fill hollows and deep wrinkles, and lift sagging skin.
How can I decide which Filler is right for me?
Due to the different properties of each filler, Dr. Dheshnie Thangavelu will choose the filler that is best suited to your individual characteristics, goals, and the area being treated.
How long do Fillers last?
Typically, dermal fillers last between 6 months and 2 years, depending on the filler used, the individual characteristics of the patient, and the area treated.
It is my first time getting Fillers. What can I expect from Zora Skin Care & Wellness Centre?
Depending on the area Dr. Dheshnie treats, your appointment will take 20 minutes to an hour.
What should I do for Pre-treatment care?
Avoiding blood thinners – including alcohol, Advil, aspirin, green tea, and fish oil/omegas – may be advisable 7-10 days before the date of your actual dermal filler procedure. We recommend this in an effort to minimize possible post-treatment bruising. Please also note that Dr. Dheshnie will not administer injections if you have had an infection (e.g., cold) or dental work done within two weeks prior to your appointment, or plan to have dental work done within four weeks following your appointment.
What should I do for Post-treatment care?
What are the benefits of opting for Fillers over surgery?
There are many advantages to choosing injectable fillers over surgery. These include: less downtime, reversibility, no general anaesthesia, and less risk of service/permanent adverse effects.
I’m concerned everyone will notice that I’ve had fillers done. Should I be?
There is a common misconception that dermal fillers make people look puffy or so different that their friends and family will notice they’ve had the treatment done. When administered properly and in the appropriate amounts, your face will not be radically changed – you will simply look like a more refreshed version of yourself.
