Dermal Filler Treatments in Richmond Hill. What are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

Today, thanks to modern healthcare systems in the world, people live healthier lives compared to the distant past. And new methods are created for every purpose. Did you know that many visible signs of aging can be traced back to the loss of volume?

As facial lines thin out due to aging, for example, lines become etched prominently around the nose and lip region and the cheeks look hollow and lacking in volume. Dermal fillers can replace the lost volume to help smooth wrinkles and give lips a fuller, healthier youthful look with an incredible glow in tow.

A Dermal filler is a minimally non-invasive cosmetic procedure that has become increasingly popular over the decades with increasing demand everyday thanks in part due to its availability in almost every country and in part because of the non-invasive nature of the procedure that appeals to a lot of people.

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume.

Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle. Dermal fillers correct these insecurities that come in the form of wrinkles, skin folds, etc sculpturing the jaw or chin to give it a much more pleasing look.

Dermal fillers differ in chemical makeup, longevity and have varying degrees of softness. Softer fillers are used for the lips while sturdier fillers might be desired to enhance cheekbones. 

There are quite a lot of benefits that dermal fillers can boast of that other be procedures cannot and that’s why it remains a popular choice around the world.


There are different types of dermal fillers in the market. Some fillers are made of synthetic products, and they last longer before the next dermal filler appointment Each type of dermal filler has its purpose and area of expertise to be used depending on the body part that needs enhancing or contouring. For example, collagen may be used to treat mild wrinkles and shallow fine lines while Calcium Hydroxyapatite may be used for much more deeper lines and deeper wrinkles.

  1.  COLLAGEN: This is a classic choice for dermal fillers. It is the oldest form of filler. It made its debut in the markets in 2002. Extracted from the cultures of human cells, human collagen is the more expensive option than the previously used bovine collagen. It is known to cause fewer instances of allergic reactions because your skin naturally produces this substance. These injections need to be done more frequently, between three to six months. 

  1.  Hyaluronic Acid: This is naturally contained in the body, but over time, it decreases in amount. There are both syncretic and natural options available for hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. These last longer, leaving you more time in between injections. This type of dermal filler has a very low rate to allergic reactions in the skin, making it a popular choice.

  1.  Calcium Hydroxylapatite: Just like hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite is naturally contained in the body and found primarily in the bones. When used in a dermal filler, the calcium particles are almost microscopic and suspended in a smooth-like gel. The consistency of a CaHA filler is usually thicker than that of a hyaluronic acid filler and typically last longer as well, about 12 months for most patients. Calcium hydroxylapatite is also reported to help stimulate natural collagen production, and it is typically used for deeper lines and deeper wrinkles.

  1. Poely-L-lactic Acid: This type of dermal filler is a biocompatible biodegradable syncretic substance. They are known as “Collagen stimulators” because their main procedure to smooth wrinkles or fine lines is by helping your body rebuild natural collagen. It is used to treat deeper wrinkles and the results can last for up to two years.


  1. THE RESULTS ARE QUICK: Nobody ever wishes a procedure to be time-lengthy in the results. Dermal fillers results are remarkably fast. A simple lip plumping or smoothing out fine lines can take just a week for results. With proper upkeep and and care, your dermal procedure can last a very long time.

  1. INCREASED COLLAGEN PRODUCTION: As was mentioned previously, collagen decreases as age increases. Collagen and elastin which are found naturally in the human body helps to make us look and feel younger and give the skin a supple look. Using a dermal filler assists to boost the collagen levels in the body making it a thoroughly healthy option.

  1. MINIMAL MEDICAL RISK INVOLVED: It is rare to experience allergies or health complications after using a dermal filler with a proper beautician. Other more invasive beauty procedures increase the chances of illness but with dermal filters, you get you get a beautiful youthful look and a peace of mind about your health.

  1. CONFIDENCE BOOSTER: We all enjoy the compliments and the feeling of self-joy that comes with looking good. This boosts happiness levels massively. Feeling self conscious in public or private leads to bad self image and low self esteem. Dermal fillers give you the youthful and beautiful look and high self esteem. The goal is not to make you look different. Rather, it’s to enhance your beauty.

  1. MINIMIZING SCARS: Dermal fillers have the advantage of reducing scars like those gotten from acne or pockmarks. Hyaluronic acid in dermal fillers can soften scar tissue around the injection site to give the scar lesser prominence or better appearance.

  1. NATURAL LOOKING RESULTS: I’m sure we’ve all seen cosmetic changes that turned out to be shockingly grotesque even if a lot of money and expertise was put into the procedure. An example could be a lip plumping procedure that looks like it went wrong. But with dermal fillers you get a natural look that is comfortable.

  1. THEY CAN BE COMBINED WITH OTHER BEAUTY TREATMENTS: One of the most beneficial advantages of using dermal fillers is that they can be combined with other treatments. Did you know you can combine dermal fillers with Botox? This gives an extremely smooth and natural result for facial skin and others. 

  1. LONG LASTING RESULTS: Dermal fillers effects can last from six to eighteen months, depending on a myriad of factors. Such as, the filler used, the lifestyle of the patient and the area being treated. This all lead to the efficacy of the overall result and less time spent on going back for more treatments.
