What Are Dermal Fillers?

If you are interested in increasing skin volume with dermal fillers, Dr. Patricia Berbari and her team offers injectable treatments at MedicSPA Gatineau, as well as fat injections (Belotero, Radiesse, Revanesse, Juvederme, …). These treatment options can help individuals who want plump lips, reduced wrinkles, and fuller facial features achieve their aesthetic goals.

General information

Dermal fillers differ in formula and other characteristics, but the basic principle is the same: they are injected into the skin to increase volume and reduce lines and wrinkles.

Because dermal fillers can be injected in the comfort of our medical office, patients can arrive for an appointment expressing a cosmetic concern, and Dr. Berbari or a member of her team can immediately address it. Dermal fillers can be used in conjunction with multiple skin nourishing and revitalizing treatments to meet your satisfaction.

Hyaluronic acid-Injectable treatments consist primarily of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the tendons and muscles of mammals. Both men and woman can see satisfying results lasting nine to twelve months after receiving an injection, as the dermal filler smoothes wrinkles and fine lines, provides volume in the lips, and eliminates the harsh appearance of depressed scars.
