What Are Fillers And Injectables?

Injectables are any kind of substance that is injected into the skin with the goal of improving outward appearance. Fillers are a class of injectable that are used to plump or smooth a particular area of the skin, such as the lips, brow wrinkles, or nasolabial folds. Frequently used fillers and injectables in Toronto include Botox, Belotero, Radiesse, and Xeomin. Many fillers are made from completely natural substances like hyaluronic acid, which is the body’s natural plumping compound produced in the skin.

How Do Fillers And Injectables Work?

How a specific filler or injectable in Toronto works will depend on the type of substance used and the end goal. Most fillers work by introducing a substance into an area that will sit below the surface of the skin and remain there for an extended period of time. This allows them to plump or smooth the skin above for many months at a time.

Injectables vary greatly in their form and function. Botox, for example, works by paralyzing the nerves around the injection site to help smooth wrinkles or preventing them from appearing at all. Other injectables, such as cortisone, mimic the body’s response to inflammation and help reduce redness, swelling, and scar tissue. Your doctor will explain everything you need to know about the particular filler or injectable you are considering so that you will be completely comfortable with the procedure before proceeding.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Fillers And Injectables?

Fillers and injectables in Toronto are used primarily to assist with problem areas on the face. Common treatment areas include the lips, forehead, eyes, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and neck. Injectables such as cortisone can be used anywhere on the body where keloid scarring as formed, helping to smooth the scar down to a flatter appearance.

What Results Can I Expect With Fillers And Injectables?

Fillers and injectables in Toronto offer some of the most immediate and impressive results in cosmetic dermatology. As the substances are being directly injected into the skin, their effects are often noticed straight away, as the active compounds begin to take effect. Significant reduction of wrinkles and “crow’s feet” can be expected after just one session, with maximum results appearing one to two weeks following your procedure. Lips and cheeks will appear fuller and plumper after a single treatment with an appropriate filler, allowing for an enhanced appearance almost immediately. Cortisone treatments for keloid scarring tend to take a bit longer and require multiple sessions to reduce the appearance of the scarring, but once the desired look as been achieved, the results tend to be permanent.

How Long Do The Results From Fillers And Injectables Last?

The amount of time you can expect to maintain your results will depend on the type of filler or injectable used and where it was used. Botox results typically last anywhere from three to six months, depending on muscle activity and how much was used. Fillers tend to be longer lasting, being effective for anywhere from six months to two years. Again, how long exactly will depend on the location, amount, and type of filler used. Wrinkle reducing injectables like Xeomin and Botox have the added benefit of requiring less product on multiple sessions as the muscles begin to shrink over time, allowing you the achieve the same results with less product.

Are There Any Risks To Fillers And Injectables?

Fillers and injectables in Toronto offer some of the lowest risk cosmetic procedures available. Most sessions involve a very thin needle that causes hardly any noticeable pain or discomfort during the procedure. Following your session, it is common to notice some swelling, tenderness, or bruising around the treatment site. This is natural and will subside over the next 24 hours. Once swelling has gone down, you will have the benefits you were seeking with no further downtime necessary. As with all medical procedures, there is some minor risk for additional side effects. Infection or adverse reaction to the injectable are possible but extremely unlikely. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to speak with your doctor. They will be happy to provide you with complete aftercare instructions and prescribe you antibiotics should you be concerned about infection.
