Toronto facial dermal fillers: What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar-derived molecule found all over the human body, wherever hydration and lubrication are needed such as non-surgical facial fillers and dermal fillers. It’s abundant in your skin, joints and even your brain! With aging process, fine lines signs of aging appear such as the production of hyaluronic acid (HA) begins to wane, along with collagen and elastin. These elements are responsible for youthful-looking, plump skin, so the loss will naturally translate to sagging, wrinkles and skin dehydration.
We lose fat and muscle mass on the areas of the face over time. When fat pads begin to shrink, volume loss, hollows and facial tissue sagging may result, making signs of aging appear. Fillers are used to bring back your youthful look with natural looking results most commonly in areas of the face.
Most common areas of treatment are: marionette lines, smile lines, nasolabial folds.
The range of available injectable dermal fillers products is always expanding, and biointegration of hyaluronic acid with human tissue is safer and more effective than ever. Read on to learn more.

What does HA hyaluronic acid dermal fillers do?
HA hyaluronic acid is hydrophilic- meaning it loves water and can bind with water molecules in the skin. There are a variety of dermal filler materials available today, and some contain a mixture of HA hyaluronic acid with other dermal fillers materials, but a standard fan favourite for patients and injectors alike are the temporary, 100% natural and non-surgical HA hyaluronic acid dermal fillers / dermal gels. Hyaluronic acid molecules are crosslinked using different methods depending on manufacturer. Cross-linking technologies can impart specific characteristic of visco-elasticity and change how dermal fillers and facial fillers are integrated into the tissue.
There are thick, firm gels (dermal filler) used to build up large, foundational facial structure like cheeks. Alternately, thinner, more liquid dermal fillers are made to work well just under the skin surface and in delicate areas like the under eye and oral region.

Everyone wants to look younger, healthy and attractive, but few people would like to appear fake.

We’ll explain how non-surgical injectable fillers results can be made beautifully realistic and subtle, as well as a few tips you need to know.
Additional Possible Improvements using Dermal Fillers
Have you heard the buzz about Toronto’s facial dermal fillers for lips, cheeks and noses? As impressive as these non-surgical cosmetic enhancements are there’s more doctors are achieving with dermal fillers in areas of the body you might not expect! Here’s where temporary volume with dermal filler has practical or aesthetic benefits.
1. Earlobes Dermal Filler
Non-surgical correction of earlobe issues isn’t something everyone has thought of, but if heavy earrings or age has changed your lobes, you may sculpt their contours, add soft volume and reshape them with injectable dermal fillers. The effect is temporary, and cost varies depending on the type of injectable fillers used. Average dermal filler procedures for earlobes are typically between $700 and $1,000+ HST.
2. Toronto facial dermal fillers for hollow temples
A common sign of aging, the temple area hollows due to muscle atrophy, fat loss and even bone shrinkage. Indents in the temple area may make you appear older than you wish. Non-surgical dermal fillers injected by a skilled facial surgeon in this area last between 6 to 12 months, sometimes 9 months on average and instantly transform the space around the eyes.
3. Chin augmentation with dermal fillers
A stronger chin or jaw can do wonders for your face. People who are considering facial plastic surgery often overlook the less expensive and much less invasive option of HA dermal filler. For men and women, the techniques and dermal filler products will vary, depending on goals.
Chin implants are still a practical option for permanent, transformative facial structure improvement, comparing to a dermal filler. However, facial dermal filler can now offer an excellent “trial run” of chin enhancement with minimal risk.
Prices for enlarging the chin and jaw may range between $2,000 to $6,000 + HST. Dermal filler treatment is fast, and there is minimal downtime for recovery.
4. Necklines Dermal Filler
Rings or neck wrinkles make some people self-conscious. Facial non-surgical dermal filler allows Toronto doctors to target just the lines with HA gel, smoothing them away for roughly 6 months at a time.
5. Acne scars
Atrophic acne scars are indented, 3D scars often remaining years after a person has struggled with acne breakouts. There are few topical treatments or dermal filler products that can smooth them because they tend to be deep. Facial fillers are excellent non-surgical tools to add volume under a scar and lift the indent.
Dermal filler injections tend to stimulate natural collagen production as well, which is a bonus for lasting diminishment of scars.
6. Hand rejuvenation with facial dermal fillers in Toronto
Did you know that a dermal filler can work for the hands too? After all, your hands are exposed to just as much wear and tear as your face. Loss of fat and thinning of skin reveal veins, bones and tendons over time. A qualified cosmetic injector can place thick gel dermal filler in the back of the hands, under the skin. This provides a smoothing cushion and instantly youthful look. On average, each hand may cost between $700 to $1,000+ HST.
7. Foot injectable fillers
A less common non-surgical but practical dermal filler use is in the heels. The idea is to reduce the need for shoe inserts, by padding the feet from within. HA can be injected between metatarsal and phalangeal bones of the big toe. Any other areas of the foot subject to consistent, painful pressure could also be padded.
8. Butt lift injections
Sculptra filler is sometimes used to enhance the buttocks. This lesser-known procedure is ideal for the client who doesn’t want fat-grafting surgery and wants minimal risk with minimal downtime.
This versatile poly-L-lactic acid filler stimulates the body to produce collagen and gradually adds lasting volume.
9. Knees dermal fillers
Sculptra has also come in handy recently as an over-the-knee filler, injected to plump and smooth skin which is wrinkled.
Correcting your features
The specialists at Verso in Toronto, use dermal facial filler to highlight your best features and carefully minimize those you’d like to downplay. We can straighten the look of your nose, make the lips sultrier, restore flattened, aged cheeks, or soften deep wrinkles. The signs of an “overdone” face may look like unrealistically large cheeks, ‘fish lips’, and a general puffiness to the face. Rest assured that when done correctly, filler shouldn’t look like filler at all. Think of it as a precision tool used to accent and correct the features you have, not to change your face entirely.
The celebrity trends are thankfully pulling father away from blown up lips and pulled faces. The advanced medical cosmetic products we use Restylane, Emmerval, Prollenium, Teosyal, and Versa, to let you see results that are soft, flexible, natural looking.
Essential to know
If you’re unhappy for any reason with how your non-surgical filler looks, it can be dissolved. We have an enzyme called hyaluronidase which, when injected, dissolves the product rapidly and safely. Typically, after a few days of mild swelling, the product settles, and the patient adjusts to their new look, but it’s a comfort to know that this non-surgical treatment is not permanent, and thankfully, you can correct it if you want to.
When you visit Verso for your private consultation, you’ll be able to explain precisely what you want and share your questions and concerns. We’ll listen to you and offer treatment options in line with your taste and preferences.
Dermal filler using microcannula delivers exceptional results
Microcannula Dermal Fillers
Here are a few of the possible indications for this Microcannula Dermal Fillers technique:
Temporal hollows filler injections: The superficial artery, nerves and other vessels are easier to navigate using the microcannula.
Zygomaticomalar (cheekbone region) region injectable filler: One small puncture in front of the tragus allows the cannula to deliver injectable filler which can be fanned throughout the zygoma and submalar zone.
Anteromedial malar region filler injections: The central check area contains important vessels and nerves to be avoided by using a deep injection of firm HA gels. A cannula can allow direction of the product under the tissue layers and create soft effects with less bruising or swelling.
Pre-jowl sulcus injectable filler: To sculpt the jawline, a small puncture allows the cannula to be threaded in and filler deposited alone the jawbone seamlessly.
Tear troughs facial filler injections: This area is often treated using microcannulas to gently feed in just the right amount of specialized filler under thin skin, with minimal punctures or skin trauma.

What will my consultation for facial filler be like?
If you’ve scheduled a consultation with the intention to proceed with treatment on the same day, we’ll book the two appointments back-to-back for your convenience. We’ll greet you with a beverage and sweet treat when you arrive and ask you to fill out some brief forms.
How long will my treatment take and what can I expect from recovery?
Your non-surgical injectable filler may take anywhere from 15-45 minutes, depending on how many areas you’ll be improving. We apply topical numbing agent to diminish sensation, but HA gel products have a potent anaesthetic in them which very rapidly numbs treatment areas during administration. You may feel a pinprick, but in most cases, patients describe the procedure as tolerable.
How long can I expect results to last?
After roughly 1 week, bruising and all swelling should be gone. We’ll follow up with you in the days following your appointment to answer questions and check on your progress. We’ll ask you to avoid pressing on the injected areas or exposing yourself to intense heat such as saunas, for 48 hours. If you have other facial cosmetic procedures scheduled, wait a week or two to avoid shifting the product before it’s well-integrated in your tissue to bring back your youthful appearance.
A beautiful side effect
There are some encouraging indications that injecting HA hyaluronic acid repeatedly can stimulate natural increases of it, meaning you may need less product to achieve desired effects over time.If you have further questions or would like to discuss your non-surgical facial injectable filler treatment in person, we’d love to book your appointment and talk about next steps to restore or highlight your youthful appearance.
