Signs of aging are no longer an inevitable part of growing old thanks to the remarkable advancements made in the cosmetic industry. Men and women looking to give their skin a more youthful appearance have a variety of options when it comes to quick, safe and effective solutions. At the Centre de Chirurgie Plastique de l’Île-des-Sœurs, we offer cosmetic injections using Hylaform, Perlane and Restylane dermal fillers. What’s more, our professional surgeons carefully and safely administer all of our injections.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is one of the most widely used dermal fillers in the world. This entirely biodegradable substance is naturally present in the human body, which is why it doesn’t produce any allergic reactions when it’s injected. Hyaluronic acid reduces the signs of wrinkles and fine lines and adds volume to the face to give it a more youthful looking appearance. Due to its exceptional ability to retain moisture, it’s often used to create fuller lips and well-rounded cheeks. Marketed under many different brand names, we currently offer three types of hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers—Hylaform, Perlane and Restylane—at our Centre de Chirurgie Plastique de l’Île-des-Sœurs clinic.
Hyaluronic acid injections can be used to treat the following areas:
During the initial consultation, one of our surgeons will take the time to analyze your face and discuss your current health, needs and budget. This will allow him to create a detailed and personalized injection plan tailored specifically for you. You should let your specialist know if you smoke, are taking any medications or have any allergies at this time.
Avoid taking anti-inflammatories or aspirin the week before your injections. Make sure to properly wash your face and to remove any jewellery the day of your treatment.
Treatments usually last one hour and are administered using very fine needles. The surgeon might recommend a local anesthetic to increase your comfort. The results will become visible in less than two weeks and will last anywhere from four months to year, depending on the product used.
You’ll be able to resume your daily activities a few hours after your hyaluronic acid dermal filler injection. However, avoid direct sun exposure for at least two weeks.
All cosmetic injections can produce adverse reactions, however small they may be. Dermal fillers can produce the following complications:
