About Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment used to smooth facial lines, restore lost volume, and create a more youthful appearance. Fillers are widely used in Canada because they provide a refreshed look without going under the knife.

Fillers are often composed of a variety of substances, but the most commonly used is hyaluronic acid (HA).

With our experienced clinicians’ guidance, we can provide you with an appropriate recommendation on what type of filler will work best for your goals.

Who Could Benefit From Dermal Fillers?

As we age, the 4 main structural components of our face begin to change. The skin, fat, muscle, and bone may experience volume loss, which can significantly affect our appearance.

Fillers are suitable for those looking to achieve more youthful skin, fewer fine lines and wrinkles, and a more defined bone structure. Dermal fillers are an option that falls between anti-ageing skincare and cosmetic surgery. Their plumping effect allows for a customized approach to a rejuvenated appearance.

What Should
I Expect?

The Conversation

Before we get started with any treatment, we will have a no-obligation consultation to pinpoint any issues and talk about your goals. This conversation will involve relevant medical and family history to ensure the treatment you are seeking is right for you.

We will then discuss your expected results and any associated risks with the procedure before moving forward.

After cleaning the injection site with an antibacterial cleanser, we administer the dermal filler through a very fine needle or cannula. Most patients report experiencing minimal discomfort, but we will usually numb the area using topical or vibration anesthesia.

The entire treatment process depends on the number of areas you’d like treated. On average, a typical appointment is about an hour. After injecting the filler, we will take a few moments to massage the gel into the treatment site and evaluate the result to ensure it meets your final expectations.

Once we have achieved the desired result, we’ll gently clean off any markings around the injections sites.

You may experience some swelling, bruising, and mild asymmetry for the next few days, but any side effects should go away within one to two weeks following treatment.

Your results from dermal fillers could last anywhere from 6-18 months depending on the type of filler used.

What Do I Need to Know?

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that naturally occurs in your skin. Injecting hyaluronic acid strategically adds fullness and volume, giving a more youthful look.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the most temporary option type of filler. It can last between 6 to 18 months, depending on the treatment site.

Yes, Hyaluronic acid products can be dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase.

Typically, most lumpiness and asymmetry from the product or swelling will subside in a few weeks once the hyaluronic acid integrates with your tissue and the treatment site heals.

If you are concerned about your results, please give us a call. We will evaluate your treatment and make an appropriate recommendation on the next steps.

We’ll recommend different filler products depending on what results you’re looking to achieve. Fillers are often used to treat:

  • Deep facial wrinkles
  • Under-eye area
  • Smile lines
  • Forehead and crow’s feet
  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Chin and jawline

Dermal fillers are generally considered to be safe for cosmetic use. However, certain side effects may occur. Your healthcare provider will discuss any side effects and complications during your consultation.

If you’re happy with your dermal fillers, you’ll have to come back for touch-ups after the product begins to dissolve. So, yes! You can come back for more to maintain your new look.

Dermal Filler Pre & Post-Care Instructions

We want to help our patients understand the entire dermal filler process. Our pre and post-care instructions can help you get prepared for your appointment.

Pre-Care
  • To decrease the risk of bruising from the injection of hyaluronic acid dermal filler treatment, avoid blood thinners 3 days prior to the appointment.
  • Examples of blood thinners to avoid: alcohol, aspirin products, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, high-dose garlic, ginseng, ginkgo, and/or other herbal supplements.
  • If you have undergone a dermal filler treatment, a hyaluronic acid gel was injected into your skin or lips to improve shape, proportion, lines, shadows, or wrinkles.

Due to the anesthetic in the gel, you may feel numbness or tingling immediately after the procedure, and have some moderate swelling, redness, bruising, and tenderness over areas treated. Some people experience a dull ache and tenderness over the treated areas, which subsides between 48 to 72 hours. Mild, non-painful swelling can last for up to 2 weeks. Bruising is usually visible initially, then more obvious the next day before fading over 7 to 14 days. A small minority of bruises can last for 4 to 6 weeks.

It is normal to feel the sensation of the newly placed filler. This feeling may last a few days to several weeks. Over the course of the next few weeks, the filler will settle into position and absorb water, improving the initial effect. Fillers usually last for 6 to 18 months, depending on the area being treated and the total number of syringes used.

  • For 48 hours, you should avoid exposure to UV light and heat, i.e. sauna, steam, sun beds, hot showers, strenuous exercise, etc, as this may increase discomfort and swelling.
  • Keep the area cool with a cold compress, but don’t apply ice which can cause injury.
  • Try to avoid unnecessary pressure over any areas treated, especially in the first 24 Hours.
  • Avoid facial massages or skin resurfacing until the area has healed fully.
  • Reduce the risk of infection and reaction by not touching the area for 6 hours.
  • Wait to apply makeup over injection points until the day after the procedure.
  • Avoid facial massages or skin resurfacing until the area has healed fully.

Serious complications are rare, but it’s vital you seek urgent review if anything like this occurs:

  • Swelling, puffiness, or lumpiness which does not fade in the first week with a gentle massage.
  • The filler changes texture and becomes hard, nodular, or lumpy, especially if there is redness or tenderness after 48 hours.

All these symptoms may indicate a need for medical assistance from your clinician or family doctor if you are unable to see us, but please contact us so we can advise.

IMPORTANT: Contact us immediately if you have symptoms of a blocked blood vessel.

If you develop increasing pain near or above the site of injection, which is getting worse over time, especially if associated with a pale area of the skin indicating a lack of blood flow, you should contact us as soon as possible.

In rare cases, an urgent reversal or other medical interventions may be required immediately to prevent scarring.

Had the pleasure of dealing with Sarah, the owner at Iconic beauty. First off, this place is GORGEROUS! The staff are all friendly and very knowledgeable. Was such a treat to experience this place. First time getting injections and Sarah was wonderful in explaining the process and made it painless even for a needle hater like me. I also bought a few products from her skin care line SKINCEUTICALS and after 2 weeks notice an improvement.

I received a couple different treatments with a couple of different ladies from iconic, both of them were so wonderful. Rayna is very knowledgable and you can tell she really loves what she does. Sarah is also so knowledgeable. She is also one of the most generous people I’ve met. And she brings more than just a cosmetic treatment, she really listens to you and gives you her honest opinion, and she will never push you to do anything she doesn’t think you need. Everything about this clinic is so professional, so relaxing, so well done. It’s a very enjoyable experience, and I highly recommend trying them out.

Felt it was time to consider a couple of services to remove some unwanted lines in my face. Sarah was great at explaining all aspects of the treatment and what expected results I could achieve. At no time did I feel I was being sold more than I wanted or feel like I needed more work. Beautiful environment and well thought out premises. Sarah is down to earth and real, which makes you feel comfortable during the treatment, especially when you are exposing all your facial flaws.
