Dermal Fillers


Dermal fillers are effective if you want to reduce fine lines, facial wrinkles, and sagging. They help to create a smoother and fuller appearance in the face especially in areas where we lose subcutaneous fat and muscle support such as around the temple, tear trough, and nasolabial folds.

There are many types of dermal fillers with the most popular being hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body with greatest concentrations found in the skin, inside joints, and within the eye sockets. It helps to increase moisture, preserve collagen, and maintain elasticity and flexibility. Hyaluronic acid fillers are used to improve the appearance of our skin as well as to ease arthritis and joint pain.

Life Healthcare Group carries a number of brands for Dermal Fillers including Restylane, Juvederm, and Cleviel. We also carry temporary Fillers using Restylane and Juvederm. The brand you receive will depend on the outcome of your medical consultation. Each session takes around 60 minutes, has very few side-effects, and with immediate visible results, that can last 6-12 months.


Cheek Augmentation

A non-surgical cheek augmentation is a common and safe procedure that can replace the loss of subcutaneous fat around our face creating a fuller look. As we age, we naturally lose subcutaneous fat resulting in sunken, hollow, or sagging skin. Sunken cheeks will also magnify the appearance of any bags or fatty deposits under the eyes. By performing a cheek augmentation, we can reduce the appearance of puffiness or bags under the eye without the need for invasive surgery.

A cheek augmentation can also help to create better facial proportions and lift the face. This provides symmetry with the other facial features such as your eyes, nose, ears, and chin.

Advantages

There are various advantages to having dermal fillers over surgery for cheek augmentation including:
  • Minimal downtime is needed for dermal fillers
  • Dermal fillers have lowered risk for complications and infection that may occur for implants
  • Dermal fillers have lowered risk for scarring
  • Surgery is, in general, more expensive than dermal fillers

Benefits

Persons who could benefit from using dermal fillers include:
  • Those with an asymmetrical or disproportionate facial structure
  • Those who are experiencing aging and have sunken, hollow, or sagging skin
  • Those who have experienced accidents and need cheek reconstruction

The best way to decide if a cheek augmentation is right for you is to have a consultation with a licensed medical practitioner. Life Healthcare Group provides aesthetics services including cheek augmentation using fillers.


Chin Augmentation

A non-surgical chin augmentation is a common and safe procedure that can enhance the overall shape of your face that adds definition and creates balance to your facial features.

Non-surgical chin augmentations can replace the loss of subcutaneous fat around our mouth and chin. As we age, we naturally lose subcutaneous fat resulting in a smaller looking chin, increase in fine lines around the mouth, and sagging jowls. A smaller chin can also create an imbalance to the rest of our facial features making our nose appear larger than what it actually is. Likewise, for those born with a larger chin, it can make your nose look smaller than what it actually is.

Nose Augmentation

A non-surgical nose augmentation is a common and safe procedure that can reshape the bridge of your nose and improve the profile of your face.
