Since 1996, dermal fillers have been administered in more than 10 million procedures around the world. They are commonly used to erase marionette lines and other wrinkles around the eyes and mouth as well as alter the shape and size of the lips, cheeks, chin and jawline.
At Dermaworks Medical Aesthetics Clinic, serving the city of Ottawa and surrounding areas, only the most effective non-allergenic dermal fillers are available. Restylane, Juvederm, Estelis and Teosyal are all based on hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in our bodies. Each product is in the form of a crystal-clear gel that is injected into the skin, producing fullness and improving skin’s resilience. The gel is biodegradable, so it absorbs naturally as it breaks down. The result is a fresher, more youthful appearance.
One session lasts just 30 minutes, delivering immediately visible results. Effects generally last six to twelve months.
