Love the skin you’re in, at any age.
For many of us, the first wrinkles we notice come as a surprise. Over time it becomes apparent that how old we look doesn’t match how old we feel!
There’s great value in growing older; the wisdom, clarity, careers, families, and communities we build are all a tribute to the years we have lived. It’s natural for skin to change as time passes. Innovative treatments allow us to rejuvenate our skin for a natural improvement–so you can look your best and celebrate the beauty of a more mature aesthetic.
Our new series explores looking your best at any age, and loving the skin you’re in. We’ll explore treatments that revive your look and give you a boost while honouring your natural, unique, beauty.
This month we’re talking about dermal fillers.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that help fill in lines and wrinkles, and restore lost volume and fullness. Dermal fillers are minimally invasive, with little to no downtime, so they’re suitable for patients with busy schedules. If you’re looking to refresh your appearance in a noticeable, natural-looking way, dermal fillers are a great non-surgical option.
The art of dermal fillers.
Our expert Cosmetic Dermatologists understand the nuance of each patient’s facial symmetry, appearance, and skin type. When injectable fillers are performed by an inexperienced practitioner, the motive is often to mask or hide signs of aging. This approach results in outcomes that are obvious and unnatural. You may have seen comedy sketches or films where a character has had an injectable treatment and no longer looks like themself. An expertly done filler treatment restores a fresh, youthful energy to your aesthetic while enhancing the beauty that is already there.
How do dermal fillers address aging?
Dermal fillers are incredibly versatile. Treatments can address volume loss, folds, wrinkles, and signs of aging on the face, but can also treat concerns on other areas like the back of the hands. Our skin’s collagen production declines as we age, and the skin loses laxity and fullness. As a result, some patients may have concerns about a gaunt or hollow-looking appearance. Injectable soft tissue fillers can gently restore lost volume for a boost. We can also use Hyaluronic Acid fillers to help restore lost moisture; these treatments go deeper than a moisturizer or mask can go, infusing skin with moisture well below the surface.
What is RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is a multi-tasking dermal filler that restores fullness and plumpness to skin for natural, beautiful results. This injectable treatment is composed of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. These microspheres stimulate your body’s own collagen production to fill in folds and hollow areas over time. Since these microspheres are similar to minerals already existing in your body, they work with your body’s natural processes to restore a more youthful look–while honouring your beauty at any age.
At Dermatology on Bloor, our goal is to celebrate aging and honour the healthy change in aesthetic that comes with time.
We believe that the treatments you choose can refresh youthful energy into your look without making you look like anyone other than yourself!
