Dermal Fillers in Vancouver with Dr. Jeannie MacDonald

As we age, our appearance often changes. Loss of collagen, bone, and fat due to the natural aging process and environmental factors such as sun exposure and pollution can cause changes to our facial skin. Fine lines and wrinkles that can affect self-esteem and confidence are often the result. However, dermal fillers aim to restore your youthful appearance and diminish the look of wrinkles and lost volume. The result is a refreshed look without creating an expressionless, overdone expression.

When you want to subtly enhance your appearance, you need a skilled provider with an artistic eye who understands your needs and aesthetic aims. With unmatched experience and the drive to help patients reach their desired goals, Dr. Jeannie MacDonald understands beauty from the inside out. Dr. MacDonald’s unique artistic skills allow her to develop a distinct treatment plan to reveal your most beautiful, natural-looking self, making her one of the best dermal filler providers in Vancouver.

What Are Dermal Fillers in Vancouver?

Dermal fillers not only reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but they also promote the body’s natural collagen production, which improves skin’s overall appearance. Made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body, dermal fillers are safe for most patients.

At MacDonald Plastic Surgery, we offer the Juvéderm® line. Juvéderm® is an injectable gel dermal filler that adds volume to the skin as it hydrates for long-lasting effects. The Juvéderm® line helps smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds to add volume and restore contours. Its rejuvenating effects are immediate, with benefits that can last for one to two years with optimal treatment.

What Can I Expect During a Dermal Filler Procedure?

Dr. MacDonald carefully customizes all dermal filler procedures for the best results of each patient. Some general steps you can expect are:

Check-in

After our team welcomes you, Dr. MacDonald will ensure you are comfortable, answer any last questions, and evaluate the treatment area. As Juvéderm® products contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, you will not receive any anesthesia before your dermal filler procedure.

Dermal Filler Procedure

Generally, Juvéderm® injectable procedures are fast and painless. Most patients report only minimal discomfort. The procedure takes approximately 15-30 minutes, depending on the treatment area.

Dermal Filler Aftercare

Juvéderm® procedures require minimal downtime. Following the procedure, most patients can return to normal activities. However, you should refrain from strenuous activities and exercise for 24 to 48 hours following your dermal filler treatment. Side effects may include redness, tenderness, mild bruising, or swelling at the injection site that normally subsides within a few days. As with any non-surgical procedure, following Dr. MacDonald’s post-procedural instructions regarding physical activity limitation, cleansing, and sun exposure is fundamental to ensuring optimal results from the best dermal fillers in Vancouver.

How Soon Will I See My Vancouver Dermal Filler Results?

Following a dermal filler treatment, many patients notice significant results immediately. However, some fillers may work more gradually, providing softer, more natural-looking results that appear two to three weeks following treatment.

Results will vary based on your individual patient response and the area treated. With optimal treatment, most Juvéderm® injectable filler results last from six months to two years. Follow-up injections may be necessary to maintain optimal results.
