Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a non-surgical option to restore or augment facial volume, thereby enhancing one’s natural beauty through facial profile balancing. This can result in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. As we age, we lose volume secondary to bone, muscle, and fat loss; and collagen and hyaluronic acid production also slows.

Mechanism: Hyaluronic acid fillers are a gel-like substance which add volume giving a more hydrated and plump appearance.

Procedure Time: 15-30 min per area

Technique: Both needle and cannula techniques

Onset of Action: Immediate

Duration: Months to years, depending on the specific filler and mobility of injected area

Indications:

  • Tear troughs (under the eyes)
  • Temples
  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lips
  • Marionette lines
  • Jawline
  • Chin
  • Hands

Belkyra

Belkyra (also known as Kybella in the United States) is a revolutionary non-surgical injectable option to treat submental (under the chin) fat, effectively eliminating a double chin. It is the first and only non-surgical FDA and Health Canada approved treatment to address submental fat.

Mechanism: Deoxycholic acid injections (a substance our bodies produce naturally) focally dissolve fat cells

Procedure Time: 15-30 minutes

Number of Treatments: 1-4 treatments one month apart, depending on the volume of the submental fat

Onset of Action: Results are typically seen within 2-3 months

Duration: Results are expected to be long-term

Cosmetic Indications:

  • Double chin
  • Bra fat
  • Abdomen fat
  • Knee fat

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has gained popularity over recent years, given its regenerative and healing properties, making it ideal for facial rejuvenation and hair restoration.

Mechanism: The patient’s own blood is withdrawn and centrifuged to extract platelet rich plasma. The activated platelets are then injected into the desired target area, releasing growth factors that recruit and increase the proliferation of reparative cells. The risk of immune rejection is eliminated given that the product is one’s own natural cells.

Procedure Time: 45 minutes – 1 hour

Technique: Micro-droplet injections

Number of Treatments: 1-3 sessions recommended initially, with yearly maintenance injections

Onset of Action: Within 2-3 months

Duration: Results are expected to be long-term, with yearly maintenance

Cosmetic Indications:

  • Facial aesthetics
    • Fine lines
    • Wrinkles
    • Acne scars
    • Collagen loss
    • Under eye hallowing and dark circles
    • Neck lines
    • Decollete (chest)
  • Hair restoration

Therapeutic Indications:

  • Pain relief in specific joints
