The natural aging process inevitably leads to a loss of volume in certain parts of the face and a change in the distribution of fat. These changes, as well as skin aging, are responsible for the appearance of facial wrinkles and deep lines.

Injectable dermal fillers can restore volume loss, improve contour, correct certain dysmorphic features, and thus counteract the effects of aging.
Dermal fillers can also correct or camouflage certain facial imperfections such as a dorsal bump, pronounced dark circles, and an unsightly chin.
Last, dermal fillers are also frequently used to augment and define the contour of the lips.

Combined with complementary treatments such as upper or lower blepharoplasty, botulinum toxin injections, CO2 laser resurfacing or laser treatment for hyperpigmentation, dermal fillers can significantly improve the appearance of the face.

Treated Conditions:

  • Dark circles
  • Chin / jaw definition
  • Double chin
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Facial tonus
  • Facial contour
  • Lip augmentation

What zones can be treated?

Dermal fillers can improve the appearance of the following age-related conditions:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Perioral wrinkles (smokers’ wrinkles)
  • Frown lines (between the eyes)
  • Jowls
  • Marionette lines
  • Loss of volume in the cheekbones
  • “Skeleton hands.”

Injectable dermal fillers can also correct certain aesthetic imperfections:

  • Receding chin
  • Dorsal hump

We use hyaluronic acid also to augment and define the lips and jaw lines.

  • Duration:
    15-30 min
  • Pain level:
  • Maintenance:
    6 to 8 months

Procedure details

The injection sites will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent.

Pain at the injection site may be ameliorated by use of a very cold instrument to chill the skin, anesthetic ointment to numb the skin or injection of local anesthesia.

While not painless, the injections are usually easily tolerated.

Injection usually takes only a few moments per site. The process of injecting, massaging, and evaluating the result is performed, and additional filler added as needed.

Depending on the number of areas to be treated, the whole process may be as short as 15 minutes, or as long as an hour.

Recovery time varies for each patient and for each type of filler injected. You can resume most activities right away, but it is generally recommended that you avoid intense physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising.

Your initial appearance after treatment with any dermal filler may include:

  • An “overfilled” appearance to treated areas
  • Swelling or bruising ranging from mild to severe
  • Temporary numbness or redness
  • Palpable lumps or hard areas at the injection sites
  • Hypersensitivity reaction that can seem like an allergic reaction with hives and swelling

Most conditions can be alleviated with topical icing and massage and will improve within a matter of hours or just a few days. Some reactions may require more aggressive treatment with medications or injections.

What are the risks of injectable dermal fillers?

Any procedure has risks and dermal fillers are no exception.

These risks should be discussed during the medical consultation prior to the treatment.

Our team is highly qualified and has years of experience in the use of dermal fillers. We use the latest techniques.


Dermal fillers provide immediate results that look natural and do not require convalescence, as opposed to surgeries. It is a simple technique, not very painful and fast, which generally only leads to slight local side effects (bruising, swelling).

What types of results can be achieved with dermal fillers?

  • Enhance the volume of the cheeks / cheekbones silhouette
  • Redefine overall outline of the face.
  • Fill the furrows (nasolabial or marionette).
  • Reduce neck and hands wrinkles.
  • Increase lips volume and shape the contours
