Women and men can attain a variety of improvements with the various JUVÉDERM fillers available in Calgary at Macleod Trail Plastic Surgery. All JUVÉDERM fillers are approved by the FDA and Health Canada, and are made using synthetic versions of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that is found naturally in the body. HA fillers are well-tolerated, require no allergy testing, and are pre-mixed with lidocaine — a local anesthetic that increases your comfort during treatment. When injected, fillers restore volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Each filler in the JUVÉDERM family is formulated for use in specific areas of the face:
Choosing the appropriate filler for the specific area of concern is the key to achieving excellent results.
Determining optimal treatment choices begins at your consultation with a thorough assessment of your skin and facial structure. Your surgeon will create a custom treatment plan designed to achieve your desired results. A combination of fillers and BOTOX COSMETIC® — sometimes called a Soft Lift™ — is popular with Calgary patients seeking comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
We perform filler treatments right in our office. First, the targeted area is cleansed and injection points are marked. Because our fillers contain lidocaine, a topical anesthetic is typically not necessary. Next, the filler is injected with a tiny needle. The injections themselves will take about 20 minutes to perform. After a brief observation period, you will be free to return to work or other everyday activities.
