Restylane®, Perlane®, Emervel®, Revanesse®and Juvederm® are Health Canada approved injectable dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural polysaccharide present in the human body that binds water and hydrates the skin and soft tissues. No allergy testing is required. These fillers may be injected into the skin or subcutaneously, resulting in greater fullness, volume correction, and improvement of facial wrinkles and folds. Restoring lost volume reduces the signs of aging and helps you look fresher and more youthful. Filler products feature different gel particle sizes that are utilized for different purposes – from eliminating tiny lines to enhancing facial contours. Dr. Elmaraghy performs all treatments and will choose the right product combination to create the look that you desire. Fillers are most commonly used to improve:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines and corners of the mouth
