Benefits/How It Works
As we age and our skin is exposed to the sun, hyaluronan (a molecule found naturally in the skin) is gradually lost. As a result, creases and sagging can appear on the face. Now, dermal fillers can be used to restore lost hyaluronan, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance. Dermal fillers help replenish volume, restore skin tone and correct wrinkles and depressed scars - entirely without surgery. We offer several dermal fillers at our Victoria, BC practice including JUVÉDERM®, TEOSYAL® and Restylane®.
The benefits of dermal fillers include:
- Reduced lines and wrinkles
- Replenished and rehydrated skin
- Lifted cheeks and corners of the mouth
- Restored definition to the lips
- Filled-in acne scars

At our practice in Victoria, BC, hyaluronan dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM®, TEOSYAL® and Restylane® are the most popular and they have a broad range of applications. In terms of treatment, dermal fillers are not particularly painful. A small amount of local anesthetic is often incorporated within the filler to make these treatments highly tolerable and in many cases, virtually pain free. Because the procedure is non-surgical, most patients return to their normal activities right away.
