Tissue Fillers

Today, our patients are living longer and healthier lives and are constantly seeking non-surgical methods to help them look as good as they feel. For many, the answer is soft tissue augmentation (also known as ‘liquid facelifts’) - a non invasive procedure which has the amazing ability to erase the signs of aging by restoring skin volume and enhancing facial contours. Just one tissue filler treatment at Okanagan Skin Care Centre can produce dramatic, long lasting results.

Tissue fillers are an ideal solution for:
  • Eliminate unwanted facial lines (such as frown lines and upper-lip lines)
  • Enhance the volume and definition of thin lips
  • Plump up gaunt areas of the face (such as the cheeks)
  • Fill out the back of your hands, making veins look less prominent
  • Fill out hollows beneath the eyes
  • Correct facial asymmetry
  • Correct skin spots resulting from sun exposure and other pollutants.

Tissue fillers are a minimally invasive aesthetic procedure used to add skin volume and restore the contours of your face for a fuller, more youthful appearance. Depending on your specific concerns and needs, our skin care experts can develop a personalized filler treatment for you which has few risks, a short recovery time and immediate, visible results.

At Okanagan Skin Care Centre, we use the safest tissue fillers available, made from molecules which exist naturally within the skin. This non-invasive filler treatment is performed in our office on an outpatient basis due to its minimal recovery time. We offer various brands of dermal fillers including:

  • JUVÉDERM® - an FDA-approved filler used to smooth mild to moderate facial lines, plump up thin lips and improve the appearance of acne scars.
  • Perlane - a soft tissue, dermal filler used to smooth moderate to severe facial lines such as nose-to-mouth wrinkles and frown lines.
  • Radiesse - a cosmetic dermal filler which treats moderate to severe facial lines and restores volume to your skin.
  • Restylane - a transparent FDA-approved hyaluronic gel used to eliminate facial lines and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  • SOFT LIFT™ - a non surgical facelift treatment which combines the benefits of dermal fillers and botox for optimal results in eliminating wrinkles and restoring volume and vitality to your features.
  • Selphyl - a dermal filler which uses the healing powers of your own body to regenerate skin cells and rejuvenate your skin.
  • Tissue Fillers for Men - At Okanagan Skin Care Centre, we offer tissue filler treatments that are tailored specifically to the needs and goals of our male patients.

Depending on which dermal filler you choose and your aesthetic goals, our skin care specialist will give you a series of injections consisting of a clear gel directly into the wrinkle or depression. Once it is in the skin, the filler creates volume, resulting in a healthy and vibrant appearance.

Tissue Filler FAQ

How do tissue fillers work?

Tissue fillers are generally injected on the face and hands and are able to smooth out noticeable fine lines. One of our skin specialists will mark out the area that needs to be treated and will give you a series of injections consisting of the filler. Unlike botox, which is injected into the muscle to prevent movement, tissue fillers are injected directly into the wrinkle or depression.

Are tissue fillers painful?

When undergoing a tissue filler procedure, our skin specialist will first apply a topical numbing agent to the area of the skin being treated. This is to make you as comfortable as possible during the procedure. Although you may experience a slight stinging sensation when the filler is being injected, most of the dermal filler procedures are well-tolerated and provide minimal discomfort.

What can I do to prepare for my tissue filler procedure?

Prior to any tissue filler procedures, we recommend that our patients have a thorough consultation with one of our specialists. This allows our skin care experts to respond to your preferences and goals and adjust the type and placement of the fillers according to your desired look.

What can I expect after my tissue filler procedure?

As fillers are a minimally invasive treatment, there is typically no recovery time. Although there may be temporary redness and swelling, you can return to your daily activities immediately after the treatment. However, you should stay out of the sun and avoid any strenuous activities for at least 1-2 days. You should notice visible results almost straight away that can last up to 8 months.
