At Dermaskin, Dr. Laflamme gives all the injections, to ensure that you have a skilled person for the treatment. A natural-looking result is a priority for us, and for our patients. However, what may be natural for one person is not necessarily so for the next person. Dr. Laflamme really understands the importance of fully understanding patients’ requests during consultations.

Next, she uses her assessment skills and her injection technique to complete the treatment. If they are done well, the injections are a wonderful way of achieving a more youthful look. Many patients, men and women, have already had these injections without you realizing. Unfortunately, you will only notice when the result does not look natural.

What is the difference between botulinus toxin and fillers?

Most patients don’t know the difference between botulinus toxin and hyaluronic acid-based filling agents. These filling agents, commonly known as ‘fillers’ are complex sugars which are injected to fill in wrinkles and to give volume. They can be used on the face, in particular on the lips, but also to give hands and cleavage a more youthful appearance. They help to bring back the convex appearance of the lines of your face. With Botox, it is the muscles which are injected in order to relax them. This gives the face a more rested and younger appearance and avoids expression lines becoming permanent.

What is a hyaluronic acid-based filling agent?

Hyaluronic acid is a complex sugar which is naturally present in the human body. This substance is already used in medicine to inject aging joints to improve lubrification. The filling agents used at Dermaskin are all reversible and can be reabsorbed by the body.

What are the clinical indications for filling agents?

Filling agents are used in order to restructure and to restore volume to the face. With age we lose the nice roundness which is characteristic of young faces, which can make us look tired and shows our age. Filler products allow us to get back the convex lines of your face. With these products we can also restore volume to lips and give the hands and cleavage a more youthful appearance.

How many treatment sessions are required?

In a single session, several syringes of filler agent may be required to achieve the desired effect. However, at Dermaskin we know that you want natural-looking results more than anything. In order to be sure to achieve the look you want, it is better to do the treatment gradually. You should also be aware that during the session, Dr. Laflamme will ask you to look at how the restructuring is going so that you can give your opinion.
