Dermal Fillers- Non-Surgical Facelift or Non Surgical Augmentation Rhinoplasty

People who are interested adding shape or volume to certain facial features may be good candidates for dermal fillers treatments. Dr. Buonassisi often uses fillers to treat lines, folds, and wrinkles on the lower half of the face, as well as to “plump” the appearance of the cheeks or lips, enhance facial contour, and fill facial depressions. The use of dermal fillers requires a medical professional to understand the unique properties of each filler product, and to have the artistic sense to know how to use a product in order to produce flattering results that look natural.

Dermal Fillers can be used alone or in combination with other skin rejuvenating treatments such as neuromodulators and laser & skin resurfacing for the ultimate anti-aging result.

Preparing for Your Procedure 

One of the most appealing aspects of injectable treatments in Vancouver, like dermal fillers and neurotoxins, is that they require practically no preparation time. Patients simply schedule their visit to Dr. Buonassisi’s office, have a brief consultation to ensure their candidacy, and then have their injectable treatment performed. Patients can resume their normal activities almost immediately afterwards, so they do not need to plan for an extended recovery period.

Face and Lip Enhancement in Vancouver Also Called Non Surgical Facelift

Formation of wrinkles and loss of skin volume are inevitable aspects of aging. But with the help of dermal fillers, patients can enjoy a youthful and vibrant look for years to come. A non surgical facelift typically involves neurotoxins and dermal fillers used in combination to take years off the face. Fillers replace the skin’s natural collagen and moisture that breaks down over time, and they are ideal for filling in facial hollows that give the complexion a gaunt or sunken appearance. Fillers are safe for a variety of skin types and Dr. Buonassisi has used them to treat patients from a wide variety of ages.

Dermal fillers contain naturally-derived hyaluronic acid, a substance also found in the body’s connective tissues. Hyaluronic acid binds with water molecules in the skin to create volume and smooth wrinkles. Dr. Buonassisi uses this to treat nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth) as well as marionette lines that run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin.

Common Treatment Areas


Also called non surgical rhinoplasty. Dr. Buonassisi injects filler into the tip or bridge of the nose to augment and define nasal features.


Dr. Buonassisi commonly adds fillers to the lips to create a more plump, shapely, youthful appearance which can give a visual lift to the whole face. Lip augmentation with injectable fillers takes less than a minute to perform and the results last from 2 to 8 months depending on which filler product is used.


Adding volume to the cheeks is a safe and effective way to create the appearance of more prominent cheek bones, or create a more youthful looking cheek appearance. Many people try cheek filler treatments before undergoing cheek implant surgery as a way to test the look before they commit to a permanent solution.

Facial Folds

As we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity and we lose the fat that once gave us a youthful appearance. As a result, it is common to see folds that develop in the face, commonly between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds) and between the corner of the mouth and the jaw (marionette lines). Fillers are a safe and effective way to plump up these folds. Find out more about fillers for Facial Folds . Treatment is very simple and takes only minutes to perform. In most cases, patients do not feel a significant amount of discomfort, but Dr. Buonassisi can provide you with a topical anaesthetic or local anaesthetic to numb the area if needed.

Recovery & Results

Another popular benefit of dermal fillers is the immediate results they offer. Just a few minutes in Dr. Buonassisi’s office can take several years off the appearance of your face. Most people feel comfortable returning to their day’s activities right after their visit, but some minor bruising or swelling may be apparent for the first few days following treatment.
