Facial Injections and Fillers
Facial injections are used to revitalize and rejuvenate your skin, restoring a healthy and youthful glow.
We offer three types of facial injections and fillers:
Dermal fillers, which patients sometimes think of as non-surgical or liquid facelifts, can be used to address a range of needs including:
- Adding volume and fullness to areas like your lips.
- Softening lines, creases, folds, and wrinkles.
- Enhancing the natural contours of your face.
- Improving visual symmetries.
The dermal fillers Brampton Cosmetic uses for your face are all made with hyaluronic acid, a substance already found in your body’s skin, muscles, and tendons. Unfortunately, it gradually disappears as you age and due to prolonged exposure to sunlight. Wrinkles and facial folds develop as a result, causing your skin to lose its youthful appearance and glow.
Juvederm™ Dermal Filler
Juvederm—one of our most popular dermal fillers—turns hyaluronic acid from an acid into a gel, helping it last much longer upon injection.
- Enhancing lips.
- Softening facial wrinkles.
- Adding volume to the chin and cheeks.
- Accentuating jaw contour.
The results, which are usually achieved with one treatment session, are proven to last up to a year depending on the areas treated and lifestyle factors such as smoking. Subsequent touch-ups may be needed to achieve or maintain your desired outcome.
Restylane™ and Perlane™ Dermal Fillers
Restylane and Perlane are made from naturally-derived and safe hyaluronic acid.
- Soften fine lines and wrinkles.
- Boost volume in their lips.
- Correct lines around their eyes and mouth.
- Add contour to their chin and cheeks.
- Address skin-deep folds.
Restylane and Perlane injection results typically last from six months to a year, making them two of the longest-lasting cosmetic injections available.
Teosyal™ Dermal Filler
Teosyal is an injectable dermal filler that gives your skin additional hyaluronic acid to naturally maintain your face’s shape.
Teosyal rejuvenates facial skin, including the:
- Neck and neckline
- Delicate area around the eyes
A single treatment session can soften lines and wrinkles, creating noticeable results.
The Teosyal® Pen, the world’s first cordless and motorized dermal filler injection system, reduces pain and intensity for patients by up to 50%.
The Teosyal® Pen works by automatically and slowly releasing filler at a pre-determined, consistent speed to maximize patient comfort. Your cosmetic surgeon will choose the mode and speed—ranging from flow to drop, slow to fast, and small to large—based on the objectives of your treatment. In most cases, going slowly produces the best, most natural results and keeps patients at ease.
Facial Injection & Filler FAQs
An experienced injection specialist oversees filler treatments to ensure your safety and comfort. Similar to Botox, the injections are given after treatment areas are cleansed. The procedure is done as patients lay on an exam table in a slightly raised position or sit upright.
The length of each procedure depends on the patient’s desired outcomes and the condition of treatment areas.
Your face is sensitive, which is why it is normal to feel slight pain (typically a pinching sensation) the first time the needle enters you skin. Our injection specialists can apply a topical numbing cream to reduce discomfort. All the dermal fillers we use also contain lidocaine, a medication used to numb the tissue and make the overall procedure more comfortable.
Should you feel any excessive pain, tell the injection specialist.
Facial injections can cause some minor side effects including swelling, itchiness, bruising, and mild pain. Conditions should subside within the first two weeks (often within the first few days).
If symptoms worsen, contact us.
We recommend avoiding strenuous activities, not sleeping on the injection site, and advise you to rest with the head elevated immediately after the procedure.
Overall, dermal injections don’t require much downtime. We encourage you to return to work and daily activities once symptoms subside.
If you suffer from the herpes simplex virus (cold sores), please make sure you advise us. We will ask you about this prior to your treatment and on your health questionnaire.
In most cases we would advise against receiving lip injections if you have active cold sores, as that can cause the rashes to spread. If the virus has been dormant for some time, we still require that you take any medication that has been prescribed both before and after any treatment sessions to reduce the risk of reactivating it. Brampton Cosmetic can provide you with a prescription for an antiviral medication if required.
