Over time, your facial features may develop fine lines and wrinkles or lose their youthful fullness. The dermal fillers and injectables that Heights Laser Centre offers can effectively restore these features and diminish signs of aging. Treatments can also accentuate features in a natural-looking and noticeable way.
Our medical spa is led by Dr. Perhez Jaffer, an authority on injectable solutions with over two decades in practice. Dr. Jaffer consults Vancouver patients on their procedures and conducts all of our med spa’s injectable treatments. He has been recognized as an expert practitioner by Allergan®, the manufacturer of BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM®. When you choose him for your care, you can expect a comfortable experience and artful, attractive results.
Rejuvenate and Enhance Your Facial Features, All Without Surgery
Heights Laser Centre provides a wide range of dermal fillers and injectables to help Vancouver patients achieve their aesthetic goals. Each is Health Canada- and FDA-approved. A selection of these products follows:
BOTOX®. Used to treat dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX® can eliminate signs of aging on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth for at least three months.
XEOMIN®. Similar to BOTOX®, XEOMIN® is a highly purified neurotoxin that works in the underlying muscle to diminish the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and mouth.
JUVÉDERM®. This popular family of dermal fillers and injectables adds volume to facial features and promotes a smoother, more youthful appearance. Vancouver patients can expect to see results immediately after treatment.
BELOTERO®. Dr. Jaffer prefers to use this dermal filler product with patients who have very fine facial features. He may also favor BELOTERO® for lip augmentation due to its soft and natural feel.
Your Experience with Heights Laser Centre
Visiting Our Medical Spa
Heights Laser Centre is committed to providing Vancouver patients with a supportive and comforting environment for care. After you check in for your complimentary consultation, our team will answer any initial questions you may have and outline what to expect during your visit.
During your consultation with Dr. Jaffer, he will ask you to share the concerns you have about your appearance and the goals you want to achieve. He will also conduct a comprehensive evaluation of possible treatment areas.
Dr. Jaffer will identify and assess signs of aging such as:
- Dynamic wrinkles, which appear when muscles beneath the skin contract and which may become permanent over time
- Static wrinkles, which are visible regardless of whether muscles are contracting
- The quality, firmness, and elasticity of your skin
- Loss of fullness in your facial features
After your examination, Dr. Jaffer will discuss the dermal fillers and injectables that can improve these aesthetic concerns. If your goals lean towards enhancement over rejuvenation, he can also talk with you about treatment options for your cheeks, jawline, and lips, among other areas. A popular solution available only at Heights Laser Centre is Love Your Lips™, a mini-lip augmentation that can improve the shape, volume, and projection of your pout.
Treatment with Dermal Fillers and Injectables
Heights Laser Centre will take “before” photos so that you can see the benefits of your procedure after your appointment. The treatment area will be iced to promote your comfort, and if you are having your lips injected, a topical anesthetic cream will be applied to your lips
Dr. Jaffer will gently and efficiently inject the soft tissue filler into the treatment area. He is typically conservative in his use of dermal fillers and injectables, introducing only the amount of product necessary to give his Vancouver patients a natural-looking and attractive result.
What People Really Want to Know about Dermal Fillers and Injectables
When will I see a difference?
You can expect to see some improvement right away with dermal fillers since they immediately increase fullness at the desired site. Most people will know their final results within 7-10 days of their appointment.
Is one treatment enough?
Each of our dermal fillers and injectables can provide significant improvement in a single visit. Patients who want a more pronounced effect can have a touch-up treatment during a follow-up appointment with Dr. Jaffer.
How long will the results last?
Different fillers have different durations. Some, like BOTOX®, will last for a few months, while others, like Juvederm® or Belotero® can last up to eighteen months. When the benefits begin to fade, most of our Vancouver patients choose to have follow-up treatments.
Is treatment with dermal fillers and injectables painful?
Heights Laser Centre prioritizes patient comfort, safety, and satisfaction. With that in mind, we apply ice before and after the procedure and offer topical anesthetic cream for our lip injections as well to desensitize treatment areas. Dr. Jaffer aims to create the most attractive results with the fewest injections possible and uses a very gentle technique. All the soft tissue fillers that Dr. Jaffer uses have anesthetic mixed with them, making the procedure even more comfortable.
After Treatment: Recuperation and Results
Patients can expect to return to normal activities after dermal fillers and injectables. The most common side effect is swelling, which can last for a few days after treatment. Lip injections may also cause some minor bruising. Dr. Jaffer typically recommends that patients avoid activities, medicines, and supplements that can cause inflammation for up to a week after treatment.
Different dermal fillers and injectables have different timelines for effectiveness, but all should promote a youthful and aesthetically appealing outcome within days of your appointment. Following treatment, you can expect a range of benefits, from smoother skin to lusher lips to fuller, younger-looking features.
Dermal fillers and injectables provide attractive improvement without surgery or downtime. Vancouver patients can learn more by contacting Heights Laser Centre online or by phone at (604) 298-4481.
