Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Dermal Filler

Botox Consultation with Dr. Manish Khanna, FRCPC

Are you ready to see a younger you instantly?

You may be noticing certain signs of aging that misrepresent how youthful you feel. The mirror no longer reflects the appearance you wish to perceive.

Dermal fillers, amongst the most widely sought out cosmetic treatments, can replenish what you have lost over time by restoring volume. They counteract your skin’s aging process. Dermal fillers can also enhance your facial contours to appear more balanced and harmonious with your facial features.

Natural-looking results

You would like natural looking results and you would like your appearance to tell a different story. One that makes you look like you have just returned from the most relaxing holiday and maintains your true essence.

Dermal filler treatment is a “technique-sensitive” procedure.  It is carried out by a person and so success depends on skill and expertise. Dr. Manish Khanna bridges science and artistry to personalize treatments to your facial features. His keen aesthetic eye will enhance the way you look, not change it.  

Call 514-989-7328 to schedule a consultation which is your first step to a refreshed you.

An Enhanced Appearance Awaits You

If you would appreciate having immediate and natural looking results, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are an excellent option. As these fillers are temporary, you will be able to modify your desired result over time as your needs and facial features change. Remember, your true essence and maintaining harmony of your facial features is key.  Looking rested, refreshed and natural is really what you desire.   

Replenish what you have lost instantly

Your skin does not age overnight. Over time you will experience a decrease in collagen, loss of fat and elasticity as well as thinning of your skin. These processes all contribute to the loss of volume and skin laxity (sunken skin). You may notice that your cheeks are less full, your smile lines are visible and there are some changes that take place around your mouth, chin and jaw-line.

Dermal fillers address these signs which appear as wrinkles, folds, creases, and moderate-to-deep lines. Once injected just beneath the skin’s surface they: create volume, lift features, and fill in lines. Your facial contours become smoother thus giving a softer, more youthful look.

Enhance your appearance

You may not necessarily have lost any volume to restore. Perhaps you are looking to improve the balance of your physical features by remodeling your chin for an improved profile, or by adding volume to what you feel are sunken cheeks.  You may have thin or uneven lips naturally and wish to improve their symmetry.

Facts to Consider When Considering Dermal Filler

Trust an expert with your face

Why can the satisfaction of treatments be so variable? It’s who is behind your needle.

There are a number of factors that influence success.  Knowledge of the facial anatomy and the intricate web of facial muscles, nerves and blood vessels is critical.  Without a thorough anatomical understanding there are two risks you can face: bad outcomes and complications. There’s no one better than a surgical dermatologist to trust with beautifying your face. 

Don’t look for a product, rather a skilled artist

When you consider dermal fillers for cosmetic enhancement, remember that the gel itself does not provide results. Just like the sports car does not win the race, the driver does.  A great car helps but the skill of the driver is what ultimately provides success.

Comparatively, dermal fillers vary widely in their characteristics. A combination of factors such as gel hardness, gel consistency, concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA), degree of cross-linking (a fancy word for how the HA molecules are linked or bound to one another for durability), and viscosity are taken into consideration when choosing which type of dermal filler is going to provide you with the best results.  This is where a wealth of experience and a keen aesthetic eye comes into play. It is truly an art.

Lip Enhancement with Dermal Filler

Hydrated and fuller lips   

Your lips appear youthful when fuller and hydrated and these traits are becoming increasingly desirable.

Temporary hyaluronic acid dermal fillers have revolutionized how safely and easily you can achieve more youthful lips. By adding volume via an injection your lips become more plump and supple. Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that attracts water, which leads to more hydrated lips as well. The combination of increased fullness and hydration provides you with optimal lip enhancement.

You deserve a highly customized approach

You may be hesitant to seek out such a procedure for fear of looking unnatural. Your goals and desired outcome are very different from other patients. You may look to correct the shape, correct unevenness, create symmetry, define the lip borders, or simply  add volume for a more sensual look.  Lip enhancement is not simply about adding volume, it is about creating harmony and ensuring that your appearance is natural and well-balanced.

A reputation for natural-looking results.

The success of your treatment will depend on the injection technique and a keen understanding of the anatomy of the lip.  Knowledge of the ratio of the upper and lower lip, the symmetry required to provide natural-looking results and the right amount of volume to add to each lip are just some of the factors that are considered by cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Khanna. Maintaining harmony with the features and contours of your face are crucial to beautiful outcomes.

Call 514-989-7328 to schedule your consultation for lip enhancement.

Enhance Your Cheeks

You may find that either due to skin aging or your natural facial features more enhanced cheeks would be desirable for you. More prominent cheekbones certainly provide definition and can be an important element of aesthetic facial enhancement.

Restoring fullness if you have lost volume over time restores youthfulness and turns back the clock on your appearance.  Once dermal filler is injected into the soft tissue of your cheeks to address the sunken appearance, you will experience a lift resulting in a more rejuvenated you.

If you are looking to augment your cheeks or achieve a more defined cheekbone structure, that wish can be granted as well.  The most important consideration is ensuring that your appearance is natural and well-balanced and that the global result respects the harmony of all your facial features.

A skilled artist with a wealth of experience and an ethical approach to aesthetics is critical for  natural-looking outcomes.

Smooth Away Marionette Lines

A funny expression for facial wrinkles but the term “marionette lines” comes from the feature on marionette puppet’s face allowing them to open and close its mouth. The lines extend vertically from the corner of the mouth to either side of the chin.

Natural  skin aging as well as accelerated skin aging (from environmental factors) can cause these lines to appear. If they are bothersome to you, dermal fillers are one approach to smoothing away those lines and enhancing the contours of your lower face for a more youthful look.

Using injections of dermal filler to replenish volume and soften the appearance of wrinkles and creases is a highly technique-driven procedure. Your facial features as well as facial anatomy are key to achieving desirable outcomes.  Globally, an appreciation for and a consideration of your physiognomy combined with expert technique will provide symmetry, balance and natural-looking results. Turning back the clock on your appearance is the desired outcome, not changing the way you or others see you.

Reduce the Appearance of Smile Lines

You love to smile and people love to see you smile. Please don’t stop!

Laugh lines or smile lines are the lines that extend  from the bottom of your nose and curve around the mouth and can extend to the chin, fancily referred to as nasolabial folds.

Injecting dermal fillers to plump up the line and therefore reduce its appearance is a great and popular technique experts use. It is however, critical to seek out expertise and a physician who truly understands the nuances of facial features and anatomy. Filler is not about filling a line that appears, it is considering the cause of the lines and devising a highly personalized plan that takes all features of your face into consideration.

Your smile line may be prominent because you have lost volume in your cheeks. Over-filling your smile lines can result in an unnatural look. You may actually require some volume in your cheeks to replenish and re-balance your natural appearance. Ultimately, a true artist bridges a wealth of experience and a keen aesthetic eye to provide you with the most natural-looking and harmonious outcome.

Contour Your Jaw-line

A sharp, angled jaw-line may be a desirable trait you are seeking. Perhaps you are noticing signs of aging that are causing the skin to descend slightly and create a “jowling’effect (the skin that begins to sag). You are not alone. Many patients wish to reverse this sign of aging without having to go under the knife.

Dermal filler along the jaw-line can contour the lower part of your face by decreasing the appearance of sagging skin and creating a more defined profile. This technique will tighten the look of the jaw-line for smoother contours and a more youthful appearance. Remember that the approach to contouring the jaw-line requires a keen aesthetic eye to avoid having the jowls appear to heavy. Often contouring the jaw-line could include adding volume to cheeks to create a slight lift. You are unique in your needs and natural-looking results require a trusted expert.

Enhance Your Chin

Chin augmentation along with jawline enhancement helps to create definition in the lower third of the face.  From an aesthetic perspective, you may feel that your chin is too small for your profile and that a greater projection would look more balanced and in harmony with your nose and lips.

With dermal filler injections you now have a non-surgical and instant way to enhance your appearance by balancing the natural features of your face. It is a highly technique-sensitive procedure and one that requires a true artist to maintain your true essence and provide you with natural results.

Lessen the Dark Circle Look

The dark circle/hallowness beneath the eye (tear trough) can be unflattering as it can convey fatigue and stress. The prominent line between the cheek and lower eyelid may be an undesirable feature for you as it is often associated with aging.  Dermal fillers can be safely and carefully injected into the under eye area to soften the dark circle/hallow look.
