OUR TECH

Dermal Fillers in Vancouver, BC

Dermal fillers are a safe and subtle way to enhance, contour, and rebalance your facial features. The injectable treatments are performed with our array of industry-leading FDA-approved fillers made with hyaluronic acid—a naturally-occuring substance produced and metabolized by the body. They work by simply and safely adding volume to strategic areas of your face to create more harmony between facial features to achieve your desired results, in a subtle, yet impactful way.

BENEFITS

The Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Next to wrinkle relaxing injections, dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments around. We have all seen celebrities talk about their new lips, or heard of someone rejuvenating their under eyes with tear trough fillers. Dermal fillers are a temporary, non-invasive procedure that refresh and rejuvenate your face in ways that can look almost as good as surgery (sometimes better).

Dermal fillers, when in the hands of an expert injector, are utilized to rejuvenate lips, contour cheeks and noses, enhance chins and jawlines, diminish volume and skin laxity loss, and the list goes on. They are a quick, no downtime treatment that provides immediate results for a natural-looking and refreshed appearance that can last between 6 months to 2 years.

We use only the gold standard of dermal filler products and brands, which are Health Canada- and FDA-approved.

Our Process

Our unique comprehensive approach focuses on 360º treatment plans bespoke to no one else but you. We aim to help you achieve the best version of yourself—no matter where your starting point is.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for dermal fillers?
+
-

Generally speaking, there are two categories of people who will benefit from dermal fillers: patients who are noticing changes in the face due to aging and volume loss, and patients wanting to enhance features, like defining their jawline and cheekbones or adding lip volume. Of course, these categories also have a lot of crossover, or patients could be those looking to supplement other treatments such as wrinkle relaxing injections, laser skin resurfacing, or even surgery.

Most people find that they are great candidates for dermal filler, but what and where it is required can vary depending on a number of factors. The best person to ask is, of course, an expert! We offer complimentary consultations with our expert injectors, where you can discuss your desired results, treatment options, and costs.

You can book your consultation as a stand-alone, or request additional time with your appointment for optional, same-day treatment. Just discuss this with our friendly and knowledgeable staff when booking your consultation via the phone.

What are the most common areas to treat with dermal filler injections?
+
-

LIPS

Some of us treat our lips because they’ve always been small or thin to begin with, or we want to improve their shape, or make them more symmetrical. Others begin lip filler injections when they start seeing volume loss around the mouth and lips due to the aging process.

JAWLINE

Often used to enhance and create a sharper jawline, these can be strategically placed in various areas to form definition. They can be used to either feminize or masculinize a face to your desired results.

LOWER EYE HOLLOWS/TEAR TROUGHS

Patients with sunken, tired or hollow-looking lower eyelids may think this is a skin issue – but it’s actually hollowness under the eye. Dermal fillers can be an excellent option to brighten the eye, and provide you with a more refreshed look. Filler can also help disguise lower eyelid bags in some patients.

CHEEKS

It’s common for the cheeks to lose volume as we age, making them a great anti-aging treatment option. Other people choose dermal fillers to create the look of more prominent cheekbones that create a lifted, contoured appearance.

CHIN

Optimizing the chin helps balance out the lower portion of the face. It’s common to get the chin treated in tandem with the jawline or cheeks to give the appearance of a heart-shaped face. Chin filler can also be used to diminish or hide the appearance of a double chin, or sagging jowl.

TEMPLES

Very active people, or those with genetically lower levels of body fat will often develop hollow temples which can be corrected with dermal fillers.

NOSE

Injecting dermal filler in the nose is also called a non-surgical rhinoplasty. Our Aesthetic Nurse Injectors target the nose with dermal filler to augment and contour and balance the nose, or disguise divots or bumps.

OTHER AREAS

While there are more common places that people treat with dermal filler, if there is a specific area of your face (or body) you wish to enhance, discuss this during a consultation. It may surprise you just what magic can be done using dermal fillers, as well as our other range of aesthetic treatments.

How do dermal fillers work?
+
-

Unlike wrinkle relaxing injections—which relax the muscles that cause wrinkles to form—dermal fillers are injected to add or restore volume, plump the face, and create definition and contour. 8 West Clinic uses only the highest quality injectables for your facial rejuvenation treatments.

The majority of the dermal fillers we use are based on hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body. This is a type of sugar in the body that binds water molecules together, resulting in plump, voluminous skin and features. As we age, hyaluronic acid, collagen, elastin, and the overall tissues that make up the face begin to slowly break down, which is how our skin lift diminishes.

We also carry well-known brands that are based on poly-L-lactic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite, which work to plump the skin by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production process over time.

Some dermal filler products contain larger particles which are used to soften deep creases, while smaller particles are effective for eliminating fine wrinkles. Our skilled injectors are artists who expertly use specific densities of filler, and sometimes combine them, to create the results you want. With a bespoke dermal filler plan, treatments will immediately or in the long-term help the face look more naturally plump, hydrated, and restored in lost volume. We are extremely selective with our dermal filler brands, using only those that meet the highest standards set by the FDA and Health Canada.

How are dermal filler injections performed?
+
-

At 8 West Clinic, you’re in the best possible hands with our cosmetic injectors and our continually updated array of preferred Health Canada- and FDA-approved dermal fillers—call and ask us which brands of dermal filler we use.

Our experienced injectors carefully administer filler injections in the precise areas you wish to target and add volume to, for proportionally enhanced features and smoothed skin. This is a non-surgical treatment that doesn’t require any anesthesia, but topical numbing is available if you would prefer. Many of the FDA-approved products in Canada contain lidocaine, to subtly numb your injection areas during your treatment. For patients who are allergic to lidocaine, have this conversation with our friendly staff and treatment providers so we can accommodate your needs.

What should I expect with dermal filler injections?
+
-

One of the reasons why dermal fillers are so popular is that the results are noticeable immediately after your injections, so you can start enjoying youthful lips or rejuvenated skin right away. Some patients may experience mild bruising or swelling, which goes away after a few days and can be easily managed with an ice pack.T

reatments are quick and you can go back to work or resume your usual activities right after your appointment. Dermal filler patients can enjoy their results for 6 months up to 2 years, depending on the area and type of dermal fillers used. Lip filler usually lasts 6 months, meaning that you’ll only need touch-ups once or twice a year to maintain your desired look. Some dermal fillers, such as for the jawline, are formulated to mimic bone, so these can last anywhere up to 2 years. Ask your treatment provider during your consultation or procedure about the specific dermal filler product you are receiving and how long it will last.

Lisa is my favourite nurse injector, not only is she incredibly skilled at injecting the face, but her kindness and warmth create an atmosphere of comfort and trust. Her gentle touch and attention to detail result in beautiful naturally looking results. I cannot recommend Lisa highly enough.
