Fillers

Fillers in Coquitlam, BC

As we age, it is inevitable that our skin will begin to lose its firmness and elasticity. Fillers are an excellent, non-surgical option to reduce the signs of aging.* At Eagle Ridge Medical Clinic, our expert providers can help you identify the most appropriate fillers for your skin and help diminish the signs of aging.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers, also known as injectable fillers, are mostly comprised of hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs within the human body. Hyaluronic acid is commonly found within the joints and eyes. It is responsible for lubricating and hydrating these areas. By injecting hyaluronic acid into the face, dermal fillers plump up the skin, reducing wrinkles and adding fullness back into the face.* Two common types of dermal fillers are Juvederm and Restylane.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a type of dermal filler. It can be injected easily and quickly into target areas. Composed primarily of hyaluronic acid, Juvederm is very popular for treating fine lines, wrinkles,  and adding volume to the lips.

How long does the procedure last?

Treatment times vary from procedure to procedure and patient to patient. However, dermal filler procedures are generally very quick. They are known as “lunchtime cosmetics” because the procedure is so quick that it can be administered during a lunch break.

When do results begin to show?

The appearance of results vary from patient to patient but some difference is usually noticeable immediately following the procedure.* It can take a few weeks for full results to take effect.*

What are the side effects from dermal filler injections?

There are minimal side effects from dermal filler procedures. Furthermore, side effects vary from person to person, depending upon skin sensitivity and reaction to the procedure, as well as pre and post procedure care. Some of the most common side effects include: redness, swelling, and tenderness to the injection site.
