Dermal Wrinkle Fillers

Look years younger!

In this uncertain economy, people are having less cosmetic surgery. Its not that they don’t want it, demand for procedures continues to grow. However, money is tight and patients can’t take time off work to recover. With company layoffs looming, no one wants to return to the office after their facelift looking refreshed, rested but unemployed. So what’s the alternative to plastic surgery? I often recommend dermal wrinkle fillers.

Dermal wrinkle fillers are injected into the dermis to fill lines and give fullness, producing a natural youthful look. One of the most popular is made from hyaluronic acid, a natural occurring substance. Two companies produce it, using slightly different processes (Juvaderm, Restylane). Both claim that theirs last longer. In my experience, they both last about eight to ten months, depending on where and how much is injected. Unlike collagen, no allergy testing is needed.

Downtime is minimal; there is often some bruising or swelling, but most everyone can return to work the following day. The results are quite technique dependent. If done by a skilled physician, you should get a nice refreshed appearance requiring significantly less downtime and expense than surgery.


I have an upper thin lip and with age its getting thinner. Same for the folds near my nose which are getting deeper, making me look older. In general, I’m pretty conservative when it comes to my face. Visiting Dr Canoun’s site and seeing the before and after photos encouraged me. Meeting Dr Canoun made me decide to do it, he made me feel trusting and I didn’t hesitate.

Now I’m very happy with the result. My lip look naturally fuller which gives me a definitely younger look. My folds are smoother so my face looks less tired and refreshed. As a whole, with a minor procedure, I look much younger, and I’m definitely satisfied. I will definitely trust Dr Canoun for an upcoming facelift in few years …
