Dermal Fillers

Our Toronto medspa is also a clinical dermatology practice, so we know better than most that collagen, elastin, and moisture vanish with age — resulting in skin that looks dry and weathered. Soft tissue fillers can help restore lost volume and provide a softer, younger-looking appearance. Bertucci MedSpa offers treatments such as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, lip injections, and other facial fillers for Toronto-area women and men who want to restore skin's youthful contours and fill in facial lines.

Call Bertucci MedSpa at (905) 850-4415 to find out more about what fillers can do for you. Bertucci MedSpa is located in Woodbridge, Ontario and serves men and women from Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Aurora, Thornhill, Mississauga, Barrie, and all of greater Toronto.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Injectable fillers are used to increase volume and facial fullness, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles and improves facial contours. They are not the same as a wrinkle-smoothing injectable, which is a muscle relaxer that prevents facial muscles from contracting and forming creases. At Bertucci MedSpa, we offer many popular hyaluronic acid-based fillers, including the following:

  • JUVÉDERM®: The JUVÉDERM family of products is popular here in Toronto thanks in part to its versatility and reliably good results. Available in various formulations, JUVÉDERM products can be used to add volume and smooth away wrinkles throughout the entire face.
  • Restylane®: This soft tissue filler can be used to refine facial contours and add volume to even deep wrinkles and folds.
  • BELOTERO®: Hyaluronic acid-based BELOTERO was formulated specifically to complement the curves and contours of your unique face for customised results with a single product.

We also offer other dermal fillers, including Sculptra® and RADIESSE®, which can help improve the quality of skin by stimulating collagen development in addition to filling wrinkles.

During your consultation process, we asses you as an individual. Together, we'll choose the products that are best suited to your specific needs.

Are Fillers Right for Me?

Anyone who would like to achieve a relaxed, refreshed, and natural look can benefit from dermal fillers. Fillers help smooth wrinkles and restore volume to enhance facial shape and reverse the signs of aging. Fillers are also used to enhance and define facial features such as the nose, lips, and cheeks. The highly trained specialists at Bertucci MedSpa offer several injectable treatments, including popular neuromodulator injections, to meet the varied concerns of their patients.

Combining dermal fillers with a wrinkle-smoothing injectable is known as a "liquid face lift" or a Soft Lift™ This treatment is intended to mimic the effects of face lift surgery and involves a combination of dermal fillers and a wrinkle-smoothing injectable. The injections are strategically placed to provide a softer, youthful, lifted appearance. Results from a Soft Lift are not as significant as a surgical procedure but do provide very significant temporary enhancements that can be maintained with periodic treatment sessions. Dr. Bertucci has been featured for his advanced techniques in liquid face lift procedures. Read Soft Lift article.

What Can I Expect?

Injectable treatments are popular thanks to their simplicity and convenience. One session typically lasts less than 30 minutes and usually requires no downtime. Dr. Bertucci injects small amounts of the filler substance into the area in a controlled manner using an ultrafine needle or a blunt-tipped cannula. The latter allows Dr. Bertucci to access a wider area with fewer injections, thus creating natural-looking results while minimizing discomfort and making bruising uncommon. For increased comfort, a local anesthetic may be incorporated into the treatment to numb the area.

Some mild initial redness and swelling may develop at the injection site immediately following treatment. Although rarely needed, these side effects can be minimized using a cold compress. In some cases, bruising may occur. However, this risk is minimized with the use of cannulas. Rarely, other side effects may occur. Most people find that their issues resolve within a few days to a week after treatment.

Results can typically be observed right after treatment with hyaluronic acid fillers and calcium hydroxylapatite and may continue to develop over time with poly-L-lactic acid. Results will vary based on the type of dermal filler used, individual skin conditions, and the amount injected. Generally, however, most people will experience a more refreshed, relaxed, and youthful-looking appearance with fewer wrinkles and enhanced facial shape and volume following their treatment.
