Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers Vancouver

Erase the signs of aging and enhance facial features for a youthful look without surgery.

Dermal fillers are one of the most dramatic means of reversing the signs of aging, enhancing facial features, and restoring balance through facial sculpting. Our talented physician injectors are known for their artistic vision; often surprising our patients with results that exceed their expectations.

Wrinkles and Lines:

Using hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the human body, dermal fillers plump skin depressions to create a smooth, light reflective surface that is youthful and flattering. Effective on lines, wrinkles, creases, furrows, hollows and indentations, dermal fillers ease the expression lines that make us appear angry or sad; resulting in a refreshed, more beautiful appearance.

Facial Volume:

Cosmetic filler is the most effective means of restoring volume to faces or hands that have deflated or lost fat because of aging. It is used to “plump” the skin, and when placed strategically—creates a “lifting” effect for a naturally younger appearance. When combined with Botulinum Toxin, a non-surgical facelift is achieved for ultimate West Vancouver facial filler rejuvenation.

Facial Sculpting:

Our cosmetic doctors, Dr. Zheng and Dr. Yam are known for their talent in facial sculpting; providing non-surgical enhancement or augmentation of the nose, cheeks, lips, chin, temples jawline and under-eye hollows to beautify your appearance or correct asymmetries.

At EverYoung, our cosmetic doctors will improve your appearance while maintaining a natural, beautiful result that is never overdone. We invite you to book a consultation and view the many examples of cosmetic transformations performed in our Medspa Clinics in Port Coquitlam, North Vancouver and Burnaby.

Filler materials are typically not permanent and can eventually be metabolized by the body, so they usually do not stay in the face forever.

Additionally, injecting fillers in areas with a high risk of infection, such as the nose or around the mouth, should be approached with caution to prevent adverse reactions.

Individuals with a history of severe allergies, autoimmune disorders, or certain skin conditions may not be good candidates for fillers due to an increased risk of adverse reactions. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also avoid fillers, as the safety of these treatments in such situations has not been conclusively established.

Signs that filler has gone wrong may include uneven or lumpy results, excessive swelling, bruising, or discoloration. If there is persistent pain, infection, or skin changes at the injection site, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional promptly to address potential complications.

Consulting with a qualified healthcare professional can help determine the most suitable filler based on your aesthetic goals and unique facial features.

However, if you’re unhappy with the results, it’s crucial to communicate your concerns with the healthcare professional who administered the fillers to discuss any potential adjustments or solutions.

Antibiotics are typically not prescribed after filler injections unless there is a specific infection.
