Do you know that injectables and fillers can help revitalize your face and other areas of your body?
The first thing people notice about our appearance is our face, particularly our eyes and lips. Fillers are made of collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA), two substances that are made naturally in your body to keep your skin a more plump and youthful appearance.
There are many ways how injectables can benefit you, including enhancing and lifting the contour in your face. Fillers can address issues such as the loss of volume with age by stimulating the production of new collagen. There has also been an increase in men using fillers too for that chiseled look and a more youthful appearance. Read on to find out more about how you can get one of the best fillers Vancouver has to offer you.
Injectables and fillers are made of collagen and hyaluronic acid to promote the production of collagen that naturally occurs in your body. They deliver nutrients in your skin to keep your skin plump and hydrated by binding water molecules.
It serves as a cushioning agent and smoothes your skin. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there were 2,676,970 soft-tissue-filler procedures in 2018 with most of them involving hyaluronic acid with products such as Belotero, Bolvella, Juvederm Ultra, and Ultra Plus, Restylane Lyft and Silk, Volbella, Vollure, and Voluma.
Here are the different FDA approved fillers available for various cosmetic procedures:
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a popular substance for well-known products such as Juvederm (XC, Voluma, Volbella, Vollure) and Restylane (Silk, Lyft, Refyne, Defyne). These fillers help keep your skin hydrated, plump, lifted and smoothed and can last up to a year or longer.
Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is a thicker filler than HA that can also stimulate natural collagen production. CaHA products like Radiesse are often used for creating structure and filling deeper lines and wrinkles and can last up to eighteen months.
Poly-L-lactic acid is a biocompatible and biodegradable synthetic substance that can stimulate collagen production leading to smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles and restoring lost facial volume with results lasting up to two years. Sculptra is an example of poly-L-lactic acid.
Dysport is an injection containing abobotulinumtoxinA (Botulinum toxin type A). AbobotulinumtoxinA is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.
Epionce provides the foundation to address your unique needs, from anti-aging to improving the visible symptoms associated with acne, rosacea, eczema and other problem skin conditions. It starts by fortifying your skin with an Epionce Renewal product, and you can further enhance your results with a complete regimen that includes cleanser treatment and protection products.
Most skincare products on the market stay only on the skin surface providing no real therapeutic benefit. Epionce has a greater impact on the health of your skin because it deeply penetrates to reveal smoother, more radiant skin that functions at its optimum without irritation.

Here are some of the reasons why an injectable filler can enhance your appearance and improve the quality of your life.
As long as you are healthy and at a stable weight, you are a good candidate for getting fillers in Vancouver. There are many ways they can improve the quality of your life. Anyone can benefit from an injectable or filler treatment.
Most of the injections take about half an hour on the day of your treatment. During your consultation we will analyze your current health and discuss your specific needs and expectations.
You may feel minor discomfort when the filler is injected into your body. A numbing cream can be applied to your skin to help provide some pain relief if needed.
It is recommended that you wait one or two days before resuming any strenuous activities and allow the swelling to go down. You should avoid any exercise on the day of your treatment.
It depends on the procedure you have and how your body reacts to things such as the production of collagen. Fillers can last up to 18 months and can occasionally continue for a few years.
Yes, treatment can be reversed or adjusted if you have second thoughts after your procedure.
In most cases, there will be minimal recovery-time after your procedure. Vancouver injectable & filler patients can expect some swelling for a few days and possibly minor pain. You can apply a cold pack if you feel some soreness. You will definitely need to rest and not exercise for a day or two and refrain from any strenuous activities for at least two days to let the swelling dissipate. Your recovery may be a bit longer if you bruise easily or if the treatment involves the eyes, a more noticeable part of your face. It is best to avoid the sun or any extreme heat for at least two weeks following your procedure.
