Injectable Facial Fillers in Toronto
Facial fillers have become one of the most popular treatments among Avenue Skin Care’s Toronto patients. Injectable fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, or improve the appearance of recessed scars. Fillers, in the hands of an artist, can work wonders on a subtle level.
Facial filler procedure
Your Avenue Skin Care Nurse injector will carefully evaluate your facial contours and skin tone, and examine the areas of your face to be treated with facial fillers. Strategic points on your face may be marked/noted as guides to the appropriate injection sites for the facial filler. The injection sites will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent and icing or a topical numbing agent may be offered to make more sensitive patients comfortable. In some cases, the facial filler itself will contain an anesthetic agent. In other cases local anesthetic may be administered to the treatment site. Injection takes only a few moments per site and a few minutes for a course of treatment.
FACIAL FILLERS TARGET:
deep facial wrinkles
Fills deep facial lines and wrinkles
Adds volume to lips and cheek area
Recovery is virtually instant
Following injection, icing may be offered to alleviate any temporary, minor discomfort. Makeup may be carefully re-applied so long as care is taken not to apply pressure to the treatment area.
Filling wrinkles or recessed scars involves multiple injections. In some cases where deeper injection of fillers is required, a local anesthetic may be used prior to treatment.
Common sites for deeper tissue fillers are the nasolabial folds and marionette lines [lines around the nose and mouth] , or to enhance fullness in the cheeks.
Amazing results appear immediately following your injection
The results of facial fillers are apparent immediately. Many Toronto facial filler patients also find that their initial appearance after treatment with any filler may include:
- Mild swelling or bruising
- Temporary numbness or redness
- An “over-filled” appearance to treated areas
These conditions can be alleviated with topical icing and will improve within a matter of hours or just a few days.
