If you look in the mirror and see sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, or other signs of aging, there is no need to fret. While skin changes as we age are entirely normal, there are safe and effective treatments you can use to combat these changes. One such treatment is dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are long-lasting injectables of hyaluronic acid. This acid mimics naturally occurring substances and adds volume under the skin. We’re not talking bumps and lumps. Instead, dermal fillers make sunken-in skin firm and supple and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At First Impressions Rejuvenation Clinic, we primarily use dermal fillers to increase your skin’s volume on your cheeks, jawline, chin, lips, and mid and lower face, resulting in a younger, healthier, fuller, and more radiant complexion.
Sounds pretty good, right? Who wouldn’t want to unlock the secrets of the Fountain of Youth? Let’s look at some of the surprising benefits of dermal fillers.
Surprising Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Refreshed, Youthful Appearance – Hyaluronic acid fillers are used to reduce the signs of aging, minimize skin depressions and scars, and address fine lines and deep wrinkles or folds in the skin of your face. Fillers can also be used on hollow areas below your eyes, treat marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and smile lines, sculpt your chin and jaw, treat scarring, necklines or ‘tech neck,’ fix earlobes, and treat aging hands. You can also choose a dermal filler to target your lips, making them fuller and plumper. Reducing the signs of aging makes you look less angry, sad, and tired; therefore, your appearance looks more youthful, soft, and invigorated. Your feminine or masculine features can even be heightened.
Results are noticeable immediately after treatment, but the full results are visible around 5-14 days following treatment. Hyaluronic acid fillers are not permanent and are reversible, as your body will break down the synthetic hyaluronic acid over time. Results can last six to 24 months, depending on the filler used.
Semi-Permanent – That’s right, dermal fillers are long-lasting. If you don’t like your results, they can even be reversed. Eventually, your body will break down the filler, and your skin will return to its pre-treatment state. However, if you are pleased with your results, you shouldn’t need additional treatment to maintain your refreshed look for six to 12 months, but some filler results may last up to two years.
Boost Collagen and Elastin Production – Injectable dermal fillers aren’t just some replacement for the hydration your body naturally provides. In fact, dermal fillers can boost collagen and elastin production! The hyaluronic acid helps your collagen and elastin supplies produce these much-needed elements to maintain a radiant glow.
Easy Recovery – Health Canada-approved fillers, used in experienced hands, are safe and effective. You can resume your daily activities immediately after treatment! That means you can schedule your injectable dermal filler appointment on your lunch break, during happy hour, or before you run to the grocery store on the weekend.
Less is More – It only takes a few milliliters of dermal filler to achieve your desired results when a skilled practitioner does the treatment. The amount used depends on your treatment area, age, and other factors. But ultimately, you can expect a single treatment to achieve long-lasting results.
Safe – Your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid; it just may slow down production as you age. This is important since some dermal fillers are made with a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid. Your body is already primed to utilize the acid; therefore, you can expect little to no side effects from hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.
Reduce the Need for Makeup – If you receive dermal fillers around your eyes, you can probably ditch your undereye concealer or other age-defying makeup. This may save you time and money in the long run.
Support your Earlobes – One aspect of aging many people don’t really talk about is that as collagen and elastin production slows down, your earlobes can sag. This is especially true for women who wear heavy earrings. Dermal fillers can tighten the skin around your earlobe, returning the lobe to its natural position.
Instant Results – Once the dermal filler is injected into your skin, it starts working immediately. Within hours after treatment, you will notice beautiful results. It is almost magical! And treatment does not take very long to complete either!
Reduce the Appearance of Scars – Dermal fillers aren’t just for wrinkles and sagging skin. If you have prominent scar lines you’d like to eliminate, you can have dermal fillers injected at the site. This will reduce the appearance of your scars and build up your confidence.
Natural-looking Results – When you get dermal fillers from a skilled practitioner at First Impressions Clinic, you won’t hear your friends and family say, “I see you got some work done.” Instead, they may ask how you’ve managed to get such restful sleep or what your secret is to turn back the aging clock. Dermal fillers in the hands of an experienced professional can produce natural results. You never have to worry about looking like a statue at a wax museum.
Liquid-Nose Job – You don’t have to go under the knife if you have uneven bone structure around your nose, such as humps or bumps. Instead of rhinoplasty, opt for injectable dermal fillers to plump the skin around your nose, contouring it into a fuller shape. Get the desired results for less time, less risk, and less money.

Dermal fillers are for both men and women of any age. In fact, men looking for a way to appear younger typically choose dermal fillers to enjoy a healthier and more radiant complexion. If you are a man or woman in your 20s or 30s, you can get dermal fillers to fight signs of aging preemptively. Injectable dermal fillers are safe for all skin types and complexions. Treatment is relatively painless as a numbing agent is injected alongside the filler solution. You may see redness or slight bruising at the injection site, but these side effects will disappear quickly.
