Natural substances present in our skin, like collagen and elastin, are essential to an attractive and youthful-looking appearance. They contribute to plump, firm, and smooth skin. With the passage of time, our bodies make less of these beneficial proteins and fibres. In turn, older skin can appear thin, wrinkled, and saggy.

At drs skincare, we provide a range of nonsurgical, injectable treatments to restore youthful skin and contours among our valued patients across the Hamilton, Ontario area: dermal or soft tissue fillers.

More than two dozen of these injectable products have been approved by Health Canada for cosmetic use. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers represent one of the most popular such injectable treatments – and for good reason.

An introduction to HA-based fillers

Like collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid is a natural and beneficial substance. A “water-loving” molecule that can be found in the skin and cartilage, HA is a natural lubricant and moisturizer. Our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Rahul Shukla, can replenish the stores of this vital substance. In doing so, Dr. Shukla can improve the appearance of folds, lines, and sunken areas that have sustained volume loss. These effects of aging can arise as the body’s production of HA, collagen, and elastin declines over time.

Due to the nature of HA fillers, they bind and swell when combined with water. The resulting gel may then be injected precisely into the areas of the face that can use the additional volume of “lift.” “Treatable” areas include:

  • Forehead
  • Temples
  • Mid-face – cheeks, tear trough
  • Nasolabial folds around the mouth and lips
  • Chin
  • Neck

By replenishing HA in the skin, our patients notice an improvement in the appearance of facial laxity, folds, and depressions. There are many specific HA fillers for Dr. Shukla to choose from following an evaluation and consultation with you. Notables include the Juvéderm, Belotero, Teosyal, Restylane family of products.

Our goal of therapy is to provide you with a natural restoration which means to us a younger version of yourself. This can mean a variety of things depending on your concerns. This can mean a less tired, sad, saggy, angry version of you or to restore the contours you once may have had.

HA fillers are generally well-tolerated and produce natural-looking results when in the hands of a licensed and skilled provider like our doctor. As with other treatments, there are risks which we will review in consultation.
