Cosmetic Injectable Fillers
Injectable Fillers are substances that are used by your physician to replace lost volume in certain areas of your face. When used appropriately they can result in substantial and fairly long-lasting improvement. They are not replacements or alternatives to Neurotoxins in that they treat a different set of problems: deeper creases and folds that are not due to muscle activity.
Some fillers are better for fine lines; some are better for deeper creases and increasing facial volume. Either one may require more than one treatment session for maximum positive results.
Juvéderm® is a line of Hyaluronic Acid facial fillers used to revive the look of youthful skin with a natural result. These fillers are used for different areas of the face to fight signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sun damage or to restore plumpness.
Areas of the face include:
- Eye area
- Or other areas
JUVÉDERM® Ultra™ and Ultra™ Plus XC: JUVÉDERM® with Lidocaine for extra comfort
After treatment, the lines on your face should appear minimised and smoothed out. If your treatment plan included lip enhancement, you’ll notice that your lips appear fuller and more defined. If your plan included adding volume to your cheeks, you will notice that your cheeks look plumper, and your face looks younger. And, your results will last—the effects of treatment with the Juvéderm® ULTRA range of products have been shown to last up to 12 months!
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™: for facial volume enhancement/rejuvenation
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ is an innovative injectable hyaluronic acid facial filler that delivers smooth, natural-looking fullness to sunken cheeks and firmness to a softening jawline. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ has been reported to last up to 18 months, longer than many other facial types of filler.
For fine lines around the eyes or above the lip.
As we age, our skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for maintaining moisture in the skin. It is this moisture that helps hydrate the skin and creates facial volume. Hydration, volume, and elasticity (from collagen) result in a youthful, healthy-looking appearance.
The decreased production of hyaluronic acid and collagen over time causes a loss of firmness, volume and elasticity, often resulting in a sagging or more wrinkled facial appearance. Some common examples are the sagging you may see in your cheeks, lower face, jaw-line, and chin. Your skin may also appear thinner and look less smooth due to prominent lines and wrinkles.
There is a way to help replace lost volume, define facial contours and achieve a more youthful look with the Belotero injectable fillers family.
Belotero fillers are dermal fillers that use Hyaluronic Acid (a natural substance found in our body) to provide volume and smooth out your skin. This helps to reduce the look of aging, such as wrinkles and photodamage (sun damage) and provides a natural-looking, youthful result.
As well as reducing the look of wrinkles, Belotero fillers hydrate to refresh your skin and keep it looking plump. Belotero fillers are designed to help you feel more comfortable in your own skin, no matter your age.
PuraPlas™ is a cosmetic injectable fillers treatment from the Canadian company Prollenium Medical Technologies. PuraPlas™ platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a skin rejuvenating system designed to help restore your natural beauty and a youthful look. PuraPlasma aids in the body’s natural repair process and contains Growth Factors known to boost tissue regeneration and stimulate collagen production, leaving skin feeling smoother, softer and hydrated. This PRP system is optimized to assist these Growth Factors in treating the classic signs of aging, photodamage (sun damage), acne scars, thinning hair and more.
Treatments that use platelet-rich plasma, such as PuraPlas™, are often referred to as the “Vampire Facelift”, as it uses the patient’s plasma, as well as hyaluronic acid, to create the fillers.
Revanesse® is a line of cosmetic injectable filler treatments from the Canadian company Prollenium Medical Technologies. The Revanesse® line of dermal fillers is designed to rejuvenate the skin and help those take control of signs of aging. Revanesse® is a non-invasive treatment that uses Hyaluronic Acid to provide a long-lasting, natural look. Through rigorous quality testing, these dermal filler treatments use state-of-the-art production methods and optimal ingredients to deliver exceptional results.
The Revanesse® Fillers Difference
Due to their advanced technology and proprietary formula, Revanesse® is an unusually homogenous filler. These fillers provide a perfect balance between smoothness and volume due to their uniquely spherical and uniform particles in the product. This also gives a more natural finish to the procedure.
The Revanesse® particles are also developed to slowly break down over time while also still being accepted by the body. This means that these fillers will have a long-lasting effect.
After a study was completed, the researchers found that Revanesse® has less swelling than that of the comparative, which had a 51% higher incidence of swelling than Revanesse®.
The Revanesse® line is made in Canada. It is also the only line of cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers that is made in the country, with their facility located north of Toronto, Ontario.
For a natural, long-lasting look with a non-invasive method, Revanesse® fillers are an excellent and innovative treatment to consider for your cosmetic fillers procedure.

FDA approved fillers are a constantly changing landscape, but some of the common cosmetic fillers in use today are:
Hyaluronic Acids (Juvederm™, Belotero™ and others). These products are composed of a gel-like substance that is found in our bodies in between the cells. This substance is lost as we age so one can consider this as replacement therapy in a way. These cosmetic fillers are soft to the touch and are used in the lips and other areas where a softer product is needed. They do not typically last as long as some of the other fillers.
Hydroxyapatite microspheres (Radiesse™). This product is another naturally occurring compound in our body and is more of a paste-like consistency. It is used in areas where thicker, firmer filler is needed, such as the deep folds along the sides of the mouth. Most studies have found it to last somewhat longer than the hyaluronic acid products.
