What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Filler procedures consist of a soft injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a sugar-based molecule that is naturally present in the skin but diminishes as we age. Injectable dermal fillers replace HA to boost and plump the skin. This very popular treatment can help by filling lines, severe facial wrinkles, and facial creases by adding volume to the treated area.

Injectable fillers are also used to augment our Ottawa patient lips. If you have thin lips and would like to increase the size, dermal fillers can create a poutier and more attractive look. If you like your lip volume, dermal fillers can smooth the lips and replace lost volume due to age, as well the definition of the lips can be improved. Vertical lines above the upper lip can also be treated and softened. A natural look can be achieved. To learn more about them, please see our page dedicated to Ottawa Lip Injections.

Types of Dermal Filler We Offer

All of our fillers are hyaluronic acid-based, highly effective, and require no downtime after treatment. During your consultation, Christena or a member of our aesthetic team will help you determine which dermal filler will provide optimal results.


Used to diminish wrinkles and increase volume in the face, Restylane®️ is a very versatile product that can be used around the eyes and mouth, as well as the forehead, cheeks, and lips.


Most often used around the lips and to provide volume in the cheeks, JUVEDERM®️ can last up to 18 months and is most appropriate for deeper and more severe lines and wrinkles. Includes lidocaine which decreases discomfort during the procedure. 


A thicker consistency than JUVEDERM®️, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® works best for age-related volume loss in the cheeks and around the chin. With just one treatment, patients can look rejuvenated for up to 18 months. Includes lidocaine to ease discomfort during treatment.


Designed specifically for lip enhancement, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® plumps the lips and minimizes the appearance of perioral rhytids or perioral lines or wrinkles around the mouth. 


BELOTERO®️ is best suited to smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. This is a very versatile filler that is also an excellent option for multiple concerns, ranging from more pronounced areas, such as the nasolabial folds, to more delicate areas, such as lip augmentation and smile lines. BELOTERO®️ also contains lidocaine, which makes for a more comfortable treatment session.

First steps of a Dermal Fillers

What’s the first step?

Our clinical aesthetic nurse specialist, Christena, performs all dermal filler treatments in-house. During your consultation, she will work with you to identify areas you’d like to target, discuss your treatment goals, determine which type of filler will provide the best results, and develop a treatment plan. If you would like to receive treatment on the same day as your consultation, please let us know at the time of booking

What to Expect on the Day of Dermal Filler Injections

When it’s time for your dermal filler injections, Christena or a member of our aesthetic team will make sure that you are comfortable and relaxed in our reclining chair. 

During treatment, the filler is gently injected into the deep layers of your skin with a fine needle. This provides instant volume, smooths away the appearance of wrinkles, and enhances the elasticity and texture of the skin. Treatment takes 30-60 minutes to complete and you will be able to see significant results instantly.

Dermal Filler Recovery

There is almost no downtime required after this procedure and there are no known long-term side effects. You may experience bruising and minor swelling. Results are not permanent but can last up to 9 months. Additional treatments can be repeated when necessary but should be evident as your facial features begin losing volume. 

Dermal Fillers Cost

How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost in Ottawa?

The price of dermal fillers in Ottawa varies by geographic region, the skill and training of the injector, and the areas being treated, among other factors. An injector with less experience may charge less than a plastic surgeon’s practice, but it’s important to remember that filler injections are medical procedures.

Most patients compare prices when considering cosmetic treatments, but we recommend that patients don’t base their choice primarily on price. While fillers are extremely safe in experienced hands, serious complications can occur. Your procedure must be performed by a skilled and experienced injector, in an environment with appropriate surgical backup if required.

We are pleased to be able to offer such support to all of our patients. When we plan your procedure during a personal consultation, we’re happy to offer you a customized quote.
