Volume loss is the hallmark of the aging process. As we age, our face loses bone, fat, elastin and collagen under the skin, especially in fit individuals. A young face is defined by facial fullness, not simply tightness of skin. Natural dermal fillers used at Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre restore the lost volume resulting in a more youthful look. Hundreds of women and men trust our experienced doctors with their Dermal Filler treatments each year from North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Surrey, Delta and other BC cities. As leaders in the dermal filler industry, the doctors at Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre also educate fellow doctors on the skillful administration and technique of dermal fillers during their filler workshops.

What to expect

Your visit for this treatment can take up to an hour depending on the complexity of the session. Comfort measures are available if necessary and due to the nature of the treatment bruising is always a possibility.

When to resume normal activities

You may resume normal activities immediately following the treatment. We recommended avoiding any activities such as a facial massage for 48 hours following a dermal filler treatment.

Results

Dermal filler results are evident immediately however as the products settle the natural results are boosted even more. Many Vancouver patients pair dermal fillers with treatments such as Thermage®, Venus Viva™, BOTOX® and IPL to ensure that texture, tone, tightening and volume in the face are all optimal.

I was very apprehensive leading up to my first lip filler appointment. I was worried that I would end up with duck lips and my family would notice. Well, I didn’t need to worry. They turned out beautiful and sooo subtle. They really listen to you as a patient and care about the end result. — Heather S.
