Dermal Fillers

NorthWest Medica Advanced Cosmetic Injector Nurses Serving London & Toronto Ontario and surrounding areas.

Think of dermal fillers as your best kept beauty secret.  Of all the rejuvenation treatments, this is one of our favorites!  A major component of our approach is to create natural and believable results; we consider all natural contours, bone structure, angles of light and shadow.  A true art!

The Concept of Light and Shadows

How we subconsciously judge someone’s age and attractiveness is actually a complex process of the interplay of light and shadow.  This interplay can signify youth or age.  Loss of light reflection assigned to youth, signals age even more so than the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.

Convex areas reflect light, making us look more vibrant and younger.  These areas are your cheeks, forehead, temples and lips – even the small philtrum columns between the lip and nose.  Concave areas that develop or deepen as we age and lose facial volume create more shadows, and it is this shadowing that we subconsciously perceive as signs of aging and loss of energy.

By restoring balance and definition with precisely placed fillers, NorthWest Medica’s Cosmetic Injectors produce results that are subtle yet powerfully convey youth and overall facial harmony.  You’ll look better, more refreshed and more confident without ever looking “over done.”  Our goal is to provide all of our clients with a refreshed and rejuvenated version of their own natural beauty.

Filler selection, placement and technique make all the difference in the results you see. We have a reputation for being among the best of the best. You can receive your custom dermal filler recommendations for your unique individual needs by meeting with us in person.

How Do Dermal Fillers Compare to Face Lifts?

Dermal fillers can have an astounding effect on your face.  Sometimes it’s not a facelift that’s needed but volume replacement.  Even after a facelift, restoring volume loss is more often than not the completion of the process.  Dermal fillers could be a viable option for you, either as an alternative to surgery or an addition to surgery.

Day of Treatment
  • Report any changes in health to your provider
  •  You may bring your own makeup to apply after your treatment.
  •  To maximize your comfort during the procedure, a topical anesthetic may be applied.
  •  You may experience a mild amount of tenderness or a stinging sensation following injection.
  •  To ensure a smooth and even correction, we may massage the area(s) treated, which may cause a temporary, minimal amount of redness to your skin.

  •  You may experience some tenderness at the treatment site(s) that can last for a few hours or a few days.
