Volume is a critical factor in a healthy looking face; without it, the features can become sallow, wrinkly and tired. Facial fillers are designed to replenish lost volume, filling in lines and wrinkles and improving the contours of the face and lips. The result is a much more rested, youthful and better-looking face. Dr. Benchetrit and our team of skin care professionals use a number of facial fillers, each with its own advantages.
Neuromodulators are purified forms of botulinum toxin that are injected into wrinkle-causing muscles. These products are most commonly used on wrinkles/furrows on the forehead, “crow’s feet” around the eyes and vertical frown lines between the eyebrows.
Vectra 3D Photography
Dr. Benchetrit is one of the very few surgeons in Canada to own the Vectra 3D photography system. This revolutionary device can take 3D photos of the face and neck and simulate the results of the planned injections on a computer screen. This makes it easier for the patient to make her decision and, by giving a “preview” of the final result, takes much of the worry out of the process.
Facial Filler Treatment: What to Expect
Many of these products already contain an anesthetic so as to minimize the sensation. Our team may also use a local anesthetic prior to administering the dermal filler, to further prevent any discomfort. The product is then injected in small amounts with a syringe to the areas of the face that need improvement. This can take up to 30 minutes, depending on the particular application. With most of these products, you should see the results almost immediately. With Sculptra and Selphyl, the results are gradual. You may also experience some redness and swelling, but these side effects will disappear within a day or two. Some patients will bruise and this can last several days. Depending on the product, our team may instruct you to massage the treated areas after treatment or refrain from doing so.
Why Choose Dr. Benchetrit and His Staff for Your Injections?
Dr. Benchetrit and his nurses have more than 20 years of combined experience with filler injections. The results with fillers are particularly dependent on technique and on choosing the right product for your specific situation, so injector experience is essential. Dr. Benchetrit and his nurses have injected thousands of patients and have one of the busiest injection practices in all of Canada. He and his nurses have trained many other doctors and their staff in proper injection technique and are often consulted by the companies who make these products. So, if there are any new advances in these products or in the way they are injected, you can be sure that Dr. Benchetrit and his staff will be amongst the first to know and use them to help you obtain the best results. With the help of the Vectra 3D photo system, patients can “preview” the results of their surgery on a computer screen to help them decide if this is exactly what they want.
