WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
Facial fillers or injectable treatments are our some of our most requested services at Skin Vitality. Juvederm and Teosyal are both a type of injectable dermal filler that work to improve the skin while providing anti-aging effects. Although both are Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based, each filler goes about the process in a different way.
WHAT IS JUVEDERM®?
Juvéderm is one of the most popular products used in the field of aesthetic medicine. It is an injectable facial filler that works to improve the skin and provides anti-aging effects to patients. Juvéderm® is both FDA and Health Canada approved, being considered a “next generation” dermal filler.
With a base of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural occurring substance in your skin, a single treatment can provide subtle to dramatic results. Skin Vitality is named the TOP provider of Juvéderm® Fillers in the country, performing more injections than any other medical practitioners in Canada.
Juvederm Fillers Work to:
- Enhance your facial contours
- Erase wrinkles
- Replace lost volume in the skin
- Modify the size and shape of your facial features
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan or hyaluronate, is a naturally occurring substance within the human body. It can often be found throughout a person’s skin, cartilage, muscles and tendons. For this reason, it has long been of interest to cosmetic medical doctors. It is also common and appropriate for use in skincare products, providing hydration to the skin.
When we are young, the hyaluronic acid levels in our skin are relatively high, which promotes that suppleness and elasticity to our skin. However, as we age our body begins to produce less and less amount of hyaluronic acid. This can be caused by various factors including exposure to the damaging elements of the environment, particularly UV rays from the sun.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT DURING MY FILLER APPOINTMENT?
Step 1: Evaluation
First you will speak to the injector who will be performing the procedure. You will go over what you are looking to achieve, and start by evaluating your face to closely inspect the target areas.
Step 2: Outline the Plan
Once the initial details have been discussed, your injector will then pinpoint the areas that are to be injected. These points will be chosen very careful, since this, along with the amount of product and technique applied to administer the product, are crucial in achieving a successful and desired amount.
Step 3: Prepping the Area
After the area of injection has been closely examined and specified, your injector will then thoroughly clean the area and apply numbing cream, if necessary.
Step 4: The Injection
Using a fresh syringe that is preloaded with product, your injector will then administer the desired and specific amount into the appropriate areas of the skin. Each area should take no more than just a few seconds, making it a quick injection process.
Step 5: Finished!
Once the injections are completed, your injector will then provide you with some post-care instructions that should be followed in order to expedite the recovery process. At this point you are now free to go home or back to work and continue on with your day as usual.
WHAT AREAS CAN TEOSYAL FILLER TREAT?
An important quality for fillers that are placed in dynamic areas of the face is resilience. The resilience that is provided by RHA fillers not only provides a more seamless and natural result, it also lasts up to 20 months due to the fact that hyaluronic acid takes longer to metabolize. RHA fillers differ from traditional fillers in the sense that they are able to spring back to their original shape after being altered, stretched, bent or compressed as a result of facial expressions.
TEOSYAL REDENSITY II
Do you suffer from dark circles as a result of depression and/or hyperpigmentation? If so, Redensity II was developed for you. The under-eye area has a very intrinsic nature, considering it a difficult area to treat. Teosyal Redensity II is the perfect solution for safely achieving beautiful results to such a delicate area of the face. TEOXANE has the best product that works to refresh the circles under the eyes, without having them look over filled.
A study done by Clarion Medical Technologies showed that 99% of patients who received Teosyal Redensity II injections, saw an aesthetic improvement within one-month post-treatment when applied to the tear trough. It is also very effective in preventing signs of aging as it works to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, while also brightening and rejuvenating the skin.
TEOSYAL FOR THE LIPS
A part of the TEOSYAL range, TEOSYAL KISS is specifically designed for the lips. It is a highly viscous formula that provides a plumping effect when injected into the lips. Teosyal lip filler works to reshape the lip contours, increase the fullness and volume of the lips, rehydrate, treat wrinkles and support the corners of the lips. Teosyal Kiss differs from other lip fillers as it provides unique strength and resistance, making it suitable to last around 6-9 months at a time.
TEOXANE fillers immediately absorb into the skin with minimal swelling, containing 0.3% lidocaine. This makes it a comfortable experience that preserves the tone and softness of your face, while supporting the skin with every move it makes.
What areas can JUVEDERM treat?
LIP FILLER – JUVEDERM VOLBELLA
As we age, our lips naturally start to lose elasticity and plumpness, that we often associate with youth. As we get older, our lips begin to lose their shape and Juvederm is able to help restore the plumpness and elasticity that has been lost through its principal component, hyaluronic acid. Lips feature an independent and sophisticated fibrous muscular structure that allows fine manipulation and extensive movement.
This complex of muscles is called the orbiscularis oris and is found only around the mouth. The orbiscularis oris, also known as a sphincter muscle, allows us to form the correct expressions to form a smile and frown, to talk and laugh, and also to eat and drink. Juvederm for lips can be used to fill in some of the smile and frown lines cause by these facial expressions.
Once the filler has been injected, the hyaluronic acid integrates with the natural tissue of the skin, enhances the fat content of the patient’s lips. To maintain plumper lips and reduce the appearance of aging, regular follow-up injections are recommended.
Erasing the wrinkles and fine lines around your lips has never been easier thanks to Juvederm Volbella. Containing a hyaluronic acid based gel, this injection works to restore thinning of the lips by improving definition and smoothing fine lines without interfering with the natural movement of the lips.
CHEEK FILLER – JUVEDERM VOLUMA
Just like the rest of our body, our cheeks are also affected as we age. Aging causes us to lose elastic, collagen, natural fats and also our ability to retain moisture which aids in smooth, full and firm skin. The injectable JUVEDERM filler integrates with the cheek’s skin tissue on a cellular level to reverse pre-existing damage and promote a healthier, more youthful look.
JAWLINE FILLER – JUVEDERM VOLUX
Volux allows us to achieve incredible result in the lower part of the face. As we get older, the bone volume in our jaw and chin begin to decrease, resulting in less definition, structure and support. Although genetics also play a role, some people natural have a weaker jawline or skin. Juvederm Volux is another hyaluronic acid based dermal filler that is specifically designed for us in the chin and jawline. The thick hyaluronic gel adds volume, structure, and support in the jawline and chin to create a more defined, chiseled, and sculpted look within a matter of minutes.

JUVEDERM® Volite For The Skin
Juvederm Volite is a specialized injection with the intention of restoring supple and healthy skin. Volite is a unique treatment that works to stimulate the fibroblasts (cells responsible for collagen formation), causing a dramatic increase in the production of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. The three elements of your skin that are vital in keeping your skin youthful and radiant. This fast micro-injection, also known as hydrolifting or hydrofilling, will noticeably rejuvenate your skin, causing fine lines to disappear and restore that plumpness and suppleness that has been lost. The best part about it, is that with just a single treatment results can last up to 9 months.
1 Month After Treatment: 96% of patients experienced smoother cheeks and 91% of patients said they were more satisfied with their skin.
6 Months After Treatment: Patients said that they continued to see significant improvements in skin hydration and were satisfied with the results.
Use Volite on your face for:
- Wrinkles and fine lines on the lower face (cheeks and below) and for crow’s feet
- Crepiness, particularly on the cheek and around the mouth
- Acne scarring
- Skin Elasticity
- General skin quality
- Improved Glow
Use on your chest or hands for:
- Skin laxity and fine lines
- Veins and hollows on the back of hands (treatment acts like a volumizer, making hollows and veins less visible)
- Complexion issues
JUVEDERM UNDER EYES
As you begin to age, you may notice more prominent dark circles and under eye bags. Various lifestyle factors including sun damage, tobacco use, sleep issues, an improper skincare routine, as well as the natural process of aging can all play a role. Juvederm provides the perfect solution for restoring lost volume to the delicate area under your eyes. Fillers work to plump the sunken areas, restoring contour and smoothing the skin overtime. Juvederm injections promote collagen production by stimulating the skin, with the assistance of the main ingredient hyaluronic acid.
Restylane is a common injection that is recommended for the under eyes as it provides a more subtle approach. It works to effectively eliminate the dark circles and hollow areas that tend to form underneath the eyes. By providing an evenly distributed amount of both stiffness and flexibility, this makes Restylane a great option for the under eyes. Like other fillers, this is a short procedure that offers immediate results with minimal side effects.

How Does JUVEDERM work?
The primary ingredient of Juvederm injections is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance that loves water, making it the perfect ingredient as your skin is made up of about 70% water. An injection of Juvederm into any problem area of the face introduces fresh HA into your skin. This injection works to address wrinkles, facial contours, enhance the size and shape of the lips and can smooth our scars and indentations. Juvederm injections are also very beneficial for aging skin by simply replacing the amount of HA that has been lost with each passing year.
Once injected, the HA molecules then bind with the water that is naturally present in your skin, causing it to swell. The swelling causes your skin to become plump, which in exchange fills out all of those unwanted wrinkles, creases and noticeable hollows within the face. The injections also improve the overall moisture levels in your skin, which is something that older patients tend to appreciate. The higher the moisture levels, the more vibrant and healthier your complexion will be.
How Does TEOSYAL work?
Teosyal® is an advanced range of injectable dermal fillers formulated from Hyaluronic Acid. Teosyal® fillers are designed to treat wrinkles, specifically in the perioral and periorbital areas of the face to restore volume and improve skin quality, while providing a naturally attractive appearance. Traditional Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are usually injected into the static areas of the face to enhance the contour or facial feuatures. Teosyal® and RHA products from TEOXANE are designed with the intention that a face is anything but static.
TEOXANE filler has a greater elasticity, like a rubber band, so it moves seamlessly as the face does. Teosyal® injections work to plump the lips, address wrinkles, under-eye hollows and scars; while RHA works best for the more mobile areas of the face including, the cheeks, nasolabial folds and the forehead. These fillers integrate seamlessly into the skin tissue, providing an undetectable and softer result.
Some of the benefits of Teosyal® filler include:
- Painless Injections
- Easy to inject
- Naturally adheres to the patients’ dermis
- Long lasting, yet reversible results

FAQ's About JUVEDERM® + TEOSYAL®
It is important to know that there are various factors that can influence the longevity of the filler, including; where the filler is on your face, how much is injected, or the speed in which your body metabolizes the filler material. Most people who want touch-up treatments will have them every 6-12 months. However, modifications to existing filler injections from Skin Vitality Medical need to wait 2 weeks for the results to take full effect before modifying the area.
