What Are Dermal Fillers?

Apr 12, 2023

Dermal fillers have taken the world by storm. Many people prefer dermal fillers to other aesthetic treatments since they can be used to treat numerous areas of the body. They help correct or eliminate wrinkles, fine lines, deep folds, and scars. Because dermal fillers are non-surgical and minimally invasive, they require much less recovery time than a surgical procedure while offering many of the same benefits. With the many types of dermal fillers on the market, such as Juvéderm and Revanesse, there is a filler for everyone. By using your skin’s natural renewal mechanisms, fillers can restore chemicals, such as collagen and elastin, that are essential to your skin. At The MedSpa at Burlington Plastic Surgery, we offer a wide variety of dermal fillers for all skin types and tones. If you live in Burlington, Hamilton, Oakville, Milton, or Halton, ON, contact us to learn more about how dermal fillers can benefit your skin.

What is Juvéderm

Juvéderm is an FDA-approved dermal filler used to reduce the visible signs of aging. This filler is injected underneath the skin to restore volume and reduce wrinkles. It effectively treats areas of your face that appear sunken or hollow. Juvéderm also restores elastin, which is a chemical that makes your skin firmer, preventing sagging skin. One of the great advantages of Juvéderm is that it rejuvenates and moisturizes your skin without requiring downtime or a lengthy recovery period. Because it is non-surgical and minimally invasive, you can enjoy wonderful results after a quick and easy procedure.

The Benefits of Juvéderm

Knowing what you want to achieve will help you find the right dermal filler for you and your skin concern. Juvéderm has much to offer you skin. Here are some of its benefits:

Natural Results

Juvéderm can give your skin discreet, natural-looking results. It does not leave your face without expression. Your skin will look rejuvenated and moisturized.


One of the greatest benefits of dermal fillers is that they are non-surgical. This allows you to get back to your daily activities right after your treatment without requiring any downtime for an extended recovery. You also won’t have to worry about scarring since no incisions are used during the treatment.


The results of a Juvéderm treatment are long-lasting. Since it doesn’t require surgery, there is no hassle when it is time for a touch-up treatment to enhance the results.

Treats Static and Dynamic Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles are a result of muscle movements, such as smiling, laughing, and frowning. On the other hand, static wrinkles are the result of age, genetics, and gravity. Unlike other fillers, Juvéderm can be used to treat both static and dynamic wrinkles.

Wide Product Range

Juvéderm comes in 5 different dermal fillers, each uniquely designed to target a specific area of concern. The result of such a variety of fillers is a completely customizable treatment that will suit your exact needs.

Results of Juvéderm

In addition to the above benefits, the results of your treatment can be seen immediately. It will only take 2 weeks to see the full results of Juvéderm as the area being treated shows a visible increase in volume. These results are long-lasting and can be visible for up to 2 years.

What is Revanesse

Revanesse is a safe and effective dermal filler approved by the FDA. Revanesse adds volume to your skin by using hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural chemical found in your body. Because of the wet milling technology and unique spherical hyaluronic acid particles, it attracts water in your body and moisturizes your skin. Your skin can gain natural, more uniform results that appear gradually.

Benefits of Revanesse

With its special formula and unique technology, Revanesse also has many unique benefits to offer.

Treats Moderate to Severe Skin Concerns

Revanesse does not only treat moderate wrinkles but treats severe skin concerns too. It is designed to target the mid-face area.


Revanesse can be used to treat deep wrinkles even though it is non-surgical. This means that you can have rejuvenated, smoother, and more radiant-looking skin without surgery.

Low Risk

This treatment does not require invasive surgical incisions. Therefore, it requires less time to recover from the treatment.


Because the active ingredient in Revanesse is hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body, Revanesse will be suitable for most people. There is a low chance of an allergic reaction.


Although many patients see visible improvement immediately after their Revanesse treatment, the results will become more visible in a few days after your treatment. This is because it takes time for the filler to settle into the sub-dermal layers of your skin. Final results can be seen Between 2 – 4 weeks after your treatment.
