BEFORE AND AFTER GALLERY

*Individual results may vary.

HOW DO DERMAL FILLERS WORK ?

Dermal fillers represent an advanced, non-surgical solution for facial rejuvenation, effectively addressing age-related volume loss and softening of fine lines and wrinkles. These injectables can also serve as minimally invasive alternatives to traditional cosmetic surgeries, such as chin augmentation or rhinoplasty, by reshaping and enhancing facial contours.

The success of dermal filler treatments hinges on the provider’s expertise. At Sparrow MD, our board-certified specialists leverage their extensive training to deliver nuanced, patient-tailored results. Serving a diverse clientele from British Columbia and internationally, we are dedicated to fostering a rejuvenated and refined appearance with utmost professionalism.

WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS? WHAT ARE FILLERS MADE OF?

Facial dermal fillers are injectables that smooth out wrinkles and give a more youthful look. They come in different types, like Hyaluronic Acid, Calcium Hydroxylapatite, and Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA), each with its own benefits. At Sparrow MD, our specialists prefer using Hyaluronic Acid fillers. They're known for being safe, versatile, and natural. These fillers are carefully injected to soften wrinkles, restore fullness, and enhance features like the lips. Additionally, our doctors also work with other effective fillers such as Sculptra® and Radiesse®. These are great for longer-lasting results and help boost the skin's own collagen, keeping it firm and healthy.

ARE DERMAL FILLERS SAFE ?

Our clinic primarily utilizes hyaluronic acid fillers, which are a natural substance found in the body. They are extremely safe and have a low risk of causing allergic reactions, making them the best-tolerated fillers available. When administered by our highly trained medical doctors, dermal filler treatments are both safe and effective. Furthermore, our clinic is well-known for its focus on procedural safety. Our doctors are trained in facial ultrasound as an additional measure to ensure the treatment is as safe as possible for our patients.

HOW LONG DO DERMAL FILLERS LAST?

The longevity of results from dermal fillers can vary significantly. Leading brands such as Juvaderm®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, and Sculptra® each offer different durations of effectiveness. For example, certain fillers may maintain their effects for 6 to 12 months, while others can endure for 2 to 5 years. Among these, hyaluronic acid fillers are the most prevalent, with results lasting between 9 and 24 months. The placement site of the filler also impacts its duration. Fillers tend to last longer in less mobile areas of the face like the cheeks, jawline, and chin, compared to more dynamic regions such as the lips. Moreover, individual metabolic rates can also influence the longevity of the treatment.

HOW LONG DO DERMAL FILLERS LAST?

The best results from dermal filler treatments typically emerge between 1 to 2 weeks after your session, as any swelling and bruising subside. Allow up to 4 weeks for the full effects to take shape, revealing the anticipated improvements to your appearance.

WHAT ARE HYALURONIC ACID DERMAL FILLERS VANCOUVER?

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Juvederm® or Belotero® are commonly used in cosmetic treatments at Sparrow MD. Accordingly, our doctors may use it to smooth out wrinkles and enhance facial contour. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the skin. It is a safe solution for replenishing facial volume and scaffolding. Additionally, one of its primary functions is to attract water. This can add plumpness and hydration to treated areas. The most common applications at Sparrow MD include:
  • Facial Revolumization and Non-Surgical Face Lift 

Certain areas of the face may gradually lose volume, resulting in a hollow and thin appearance. Commonly, we observe this in the cheeks, under the eyes, and around the mouth. Dermal fillers are a great non-invasive way to restore a more youthful appearance to the area.

  • Facial Feature Enhancements

Our doctors can refine your facial features with dermal filler injections. For instance, lip fillers can help improve the coutour and shape of the lips. Cheek fillers can help lift the mid-face. Jaw fillers can help create a more sculpted and contoured jawline. Another area would be the chin, which can improve facial balance.

  • Profile Balancing Facial Harmonization

Our doctors incorporate the principles of golden ratio and aesthetic angles in our treatments. Particularly transformative results can be achieved with profile balancing treatments. Subtle finetuning can make a huge difference. Specifically, this include balancing chin projection, enhancing jawline definition, and improving nasal contour.

WHAT ARE OTHER TYPES OF DERMAL FILLERS?

Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most popular type of dermal fillers used at our clinic in Vancouver. However, we also carry other dermal fillers and biostimulators. Each one boasts unique properties:

Radiesse®

Radiesse® consists of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA). It is comprised of small particles of a mineral-like compounds inherent in our bone. Its denser consistency compared to HA dermal fillers makes it ideal for addressing deeper wrinkles and lines. Moreover, it can enhance cheek volume and define the jawline with precision.

The benefit of Radiesse lies in its ability to yield remarkably natural-looking results. It generally lasts longer than hyaluronic acid fillers, often extending up to a year or beyond.

Sculptra®

culptra®, which contains Poly-l-lactic Acid (PLLA), represents a clinically advanced approach with biostimulation. It goes beyond conventional line and wrinkle filling. Sculptra® facilitates a natural, volumizing process by stimulating collagen production over time. This remarkable property hence makes it particularly effective for addressing facial volume loss. In particular, it offers great solutions for hollow cheeks and temples, with a seamless restoration of facial contours. Furthermore, Sculptra® has the exceptional ability to enhance overall skin texture. This makes it a versatile choice for the right patient.

WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR MY DERMAL FILLERS APPOINTMENT?

Before your dermal filler treatment at our clinic in Vancouver, we recommend our patients to avoid certain blood thinners. This may include blood-thinning medications like aspirin or ibuprofen. We also recommend stopping supplements like Omega-3, St. John's Wort, Gingko Biloba, ginseng, garlic, primrose oil, and Vitamin E. Additionally, we recommend avoiding alcohol for about 24 hours before injection.

Our doctors will review your complete medical history during your consultation with us. Feeling nervous is normal, especially if it's your first time receiving dermal filler treatments. Our team can help answer any questions before your appointment. Do not hesitate to contact us for more answers.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR DERMAL FILLERS TREATMENT?

During your dermal filler appointment, our injectors will first discuss your personal goals. We will then assess your facial features to plan the best treatment for you. Using a tiny needle or a cannula, our doctors can inject filler into targeted areas with minimal discomfort. The entire process takes 30 minutes to an hour. You can expect to see results immediately. Generally, you may expect some mild swelling, redness, or bruising. However, this is temporary and typically fades within days. Furthermore, the filler results can last months to years.

WHEN SHOULD I EXPECT TO SEE THE RESULTS FROM DERMAL FILLER TREATMENT?

You will generally notice immediate results after hyaluronic acid filler injections. However, it's important to remember that there might be some swelling. This is temporary and will resolve naturally. Once the initial swelling subsides, typically taking a few days to a week, you will begin to see the final results. By this time, the filler has settled into its final position. Moreover, any minor bruising or redness should also fade away.

In some cases, it may take a few weeks to months to see the final results. This is especially the case with fillers that stimulate collagen production, such as Sculptra®. Collagen synthesis is a gradual process. As a result, the best outcome is usually seen after 3 months.

IS THERE DOWNTIME WITH DERMAL FILLER TREATMENTS?

Immediately after the procedure, there might be some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites. However, these typically resolve within a few days. Most people can resume their regular activities right after the treatment. Generally, we advise our patients to avoid intense physical activity, excessive heat like saunas or hot tubs, and alcohol for about 24 hours. This helps minimize swelling and bruising.

WILL I STILL LOOK NATURAL AND NOT OVERFILLED AFTER FILLER INJECTIONS?

At Sparrow MD, our doctors focus on delivering natural results. We can help enhance your facial features while preserving your natural appearance. Before starting treatment, our doctors will always conduct a comprehensive assessment. Firstly, we aim to understand your facial structure and vision. We can then proceed to treatment.

The philosophy guides our team at Sparrow MD: "Do it, but don't overdo it." We know that an overdone look can paradoxically age a youthful individual. Our doctors have mastered the art of achieving natural-looking results. We design a customized treatment plan tailored to you. This approach ensures the outcome aligns with your unique features and personal preferences.

DO MEN GET DERMAL FILLERS?

In recent years, more and more men have been seeking dermal filler treatments to enhance their appearance and combat signs of aging. As the stigma around cosmetic procedures continues to diminish, more men are discovering the benefits of dermal fillers. It is now a valuable tool in their self-care and grooming routine.

Dermal fillers can provide solutions for wrinkles, facial volume loss, and asymmetry. Common treatment areas for men include the under eyes, cheeks, and jawline. Our doctors provide a tailored approach to address individual aesthetic goals. We help our male clients maintain a strong and masculine appearance.

We understand that facial treatments are a matter of trust, and with so many options available, choosing Sparrow MD is a privilege we deeply value. Our board-certified Medical Doctors, experts in advanced medical aesthetics, personally administer all dermal filler treatments, ensuring your safety and desired results. Given the face's complexity, it's vital to have these treatments by professionals who know facial anatomy intimately. Schedule a consultation with us to discover how we can best serve your needs.

The cost of a dermal filler treatment in Vancouver varies with each person based on the area treated, their current anatomy, and their desired results. These factors determine how many syringes of dermal filler are needed or whether we should perform other procedures as part of the overall treatment plan. In general, the cost of fillers starts at 450-850 dollars depending on the area of treatment. During your consultation, the cost, as well as payment options, are thoroughly reviewed. We accept cash, credit cards, and debt.

The best results from dermal filler treatments typically emerge between 1-2 weeks after your session, as any swelling and bruising subside. Allow up to 4 weeks for the full effects to take shape, revealing the anticipated improvements to your appearance.

In Canada, the administration of filler treatments is strictly reserved for licensed medical practitioners who have acquired the necessary training to administer dermal fillers safely and effectively. While regulations may vary across provinces; generally, medical doctors and nurses are authorized to perform these injections, provided they have the proper training and licensing.

The price of lip injections can differ based on the quantity used and your specific needs. However, our sought-after natural lip injection treatment is typically priced between $450 and $700.

A standard full syringe of filler contains 1.0 mL, which makes a half syringe equivalent to 0.5 mL. This is a relatively modest amount. To put this into perspective, consider that a teaspoon holds 5.0 mL. At Sparrow MD, our physicians expertly recommend the volume of filler that aligns with each patient's unique facial structure and aesthetic goals. The required volume can vary greatly depending on your unique anatomy and personal preferences.

At Sparrow MD, our doctors prioritize the use of premium fillers that are not only safe and natural but also provide enduring results. For hyaluronic acid fillers, we typically recommend a touch-up every 6 to 12 months to sustain your desired look. Meanwhile, fillers like Radiesse® and Sculptra® are specially designed to address significant volume loss in areas like the cheeks, offering longevity of 18 to 24 months. This requires maintenance treatments less frequently.

It is important to find a reputable clinic for dermal filler treatments in Vancouver. Clinics with certified medical doctors are always your best choice. Moreover, it is always helpful to have personal referrals. We always recommend checking credentials through professional bodies like the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC to ensure the clinic adheres to high safety standards. Always prioritize experience and safety over cost.

We recommend not flying on the same day as your filler treatment. For optimal safety, it's best to wait at least one week before flying after receiving filler injections. Most significant complications, if any, tend to emerge in the days following the procedure. Additionally, during flight, the pressurized cabin environment differs from ground level conditions, which can cause blood vessels to become more permeable. This increased permeability can lead to greater swelling, as fluids may leak into the recently treated areas, exacerbating swelling at the injection sites.

Should you get dermal fillers during pregnancy? The consensus from most doctors is to avoid them. It's advisable to stop all injectable treatments at least one month prior to conception. Due to the scarcity of research and the ethical implications that prevent clinical trials on pregnant women, the potential side effects remain largely unknown. Dermal fillers are considered very safe but our physicians recommend delaying any filler procedures until after pregnancy and breastfeeding to ensure your utmost safety and well-being.

To maintain the optimal placement and effect of dermal fillers, we advise scheduling any dental procedures two weeks after your filler appointment. This precaution is important for treatments like lip augmentation, where manipulation of the lower face during dental work could alter the positioning of the filler.

Receiving dermal fillers after dental appointments typically raises fewer issues. Therefore, completing dental work before filler treatments is recommended for the best aesthetic outcome.
