What Are Tissue Fillers?

The technology for soft tissue fillers (also known as dermal fillers) has advanced significantly in the past few years, offering a wide range of options for clients to smooth out deep wrinkles and restore a youthful fullness to their face without surgery.

Many of our regular clients at Okanagan Skin Care Centre have enjoyed the benefits of tissue or dermal fillers for years. The procedure is quick, with minimal discomfort and immediate results.

If you’re new to tissue fillers and curious about the benefits, read on for this overview of how tissue fillers work and what types of skin issues they can solve.

How do tissue fillers work?

Tissue fillers consist of a special liquid or gel that is carefully injected into your skin with a fine needle. All of the substances used for the tissue filler are safe and many are naturally occurring in the skin already, such as collagen or hyaluronic acid.

After marking the treatment area, the technician applies a numbing cream so that you feel minimal pain, and then injects the filler. The entire process is quick, usually taking just one hour or less.

You’ll notice a difference immediately as any wrinkles, pitted acne scars, or hollowness in your face are effectively smoothed out and plumped up to restore an even, youthful skin texture.

See our video of an actual tissue filler treatment for an idea of how quick and painless this process can be:

What kind of skin concerns can tissue fillers fix?

Thanks to all of the recent advancements in the materials used for tissue fillers, this type of treatment is effective for a wide range of skin concerns.

We’ve had excellent results using tissue fillers to treat:

  • Deep wrinkles or frown lines along the forehead and between the eyes
  • Crow’s feet along the outer eyes
  • Nasolabial grooves (smile lines or marionette lines) along the sides of the mouth
  • Drooping around the eyebrows
  • Hollowed out cheeks
  • Pronounced under-eye circles
  • Sunken or thinned lips
  • Pitted acne scars

The results of tissue fillers are effective, yet subtle, so you will look naturally refreshed and rejuvenated. Click here to see examples of tissue filler results in our gallery.

How long do the results last?

The results from tissue fillers typically last 6 to 8 months, but this timeframe will depend on the type of tissue filler you have received.

Some of the tissue fillers we offer, such as Selphyl, can produce results that last up to one year. Many patients also find that their results extend over time as they get regular follow-up treatments.

A growing number of individuals are signing up for tissue fillers, as this treatment is a great alternative to plastic surgery. In a matter of minutes, you can fill deep wrinkles, facial hollows, and scars with a procedure that is minimally invasive and requires no downtime.
