As we age, our skin is susceptible to wrinkling and sagging. Our skin gradually thins and loses elasticity through the diminishment of dermal collagen, hyaluronic acid (HA), and elastin. This aging process is accelerated by sun damage and other extrinsic factors such as smoking which contribute to tissue breakdown of the skin. This becomes evident with facial volume loss and laxity. As facial contours change with age, treatment with dermal filler is beneficial for facial sculpting and contouring.
What is Dermal Filler?
Dermal filler is composed of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring substance found within our body that contributes to volume and hydration. Dermal filler temporarily augments facial contours by filling any volume deficits while correcting and smoothing any deep wrinkles for a natural-looking result.
How is Dermal Filler injected?
Once you have completed a consultation with one of our medical practitioners, the treatment area is prepped and injected with either a fine needle or a cannula, dependent on safety, preference, and location of treatment. At Kontour Medical Aesthetics Inc., we use a Canadian, FDA approved dermal filler that has used science, research, and the highest form of technology to create an extremely safe product, providing the best and natural looking result with minimal adverse effects.
