Be in control of your features!
Dermal fillers are an effective and popular solution to achieve a non-surgical facelift without scarring and minimizing recovery time. One of the most common and versatile fillers is Juvéderm, an injectable gel capable of adding volume and hydration to the skin using It is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance already found in your skin and can help correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm is available in different consistencies depending on where it is needed and the newest line is the Vycross Collection. Other hyaluronic acid fillers used by Dr. Mah includes the Belotero line for adding volume and hydration as well as lip augmentation, Teosyal Redensity 2 for tear trough correction, and dilute Radiesse for correction of fine lines on the face and neck. Dr. Mah uses specialized techniques and a deeper understanding of facial anatomy under the MD Codes™ to deliver rejuvenation that looks and feels natural.
At Nova MD we can produce real, noticeable results with dermal fillers by using MD Codes™. Renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Mauricio de Maio, developed this system to create a more natural-looking way to rejuvenate your facial features. Dr. Mah is one of the many top injectors in Canada, expertly trained by Dr. de Maio in person, in using MD Codes™ to create a precise and personalized approach to your treatment.
What is your goal with dermal filler treatment? Dr. Mah helps our patients identify their desired outcome, which may be a range of things including:
- Look less tired
- Look less saggy
- Look less angry
- Look happier
- Look more attractive
- Look slimmer
- Look more feminine or masculine
- look younger
Your facial features may no longer look the way you want due to the loss of collagen. As natural support and volume are lost in the face, prominent wrinkles can form, skin may begin to sag, or your lips may not look as full as they used to. Our clients often are concerned their features no longer reflect how they feel. Dermal fillers can be used to replace lost volume and support, correcting these changes in your features you are unhappy with.
Contrary to popular belief, getting injectable fillers doesn’t mean having “I’ve had work done” written all over your face. In the past, fillers were injected at the site of lines and wrinkles. This type of treatment fixed the site directly by removing wrinkles, but the cause of the aging process was not addressed. These methods added more fullness but didn’t make the patient look more youthful or attractive. Often it would also cause unnatural shaping of features. The use of MD Codes™ addresses these problems, allowing Dr. Mah to create a superior, natural-looking treatment for his clients.
For example, if a client is concerned about their face looking tired, it may be due to drooping eyebrows, sagging under the eyes or a loss of cheek volume. Dr. Mah’s treatment with MD Codes™ would require several different injection sites surrounding the problem areas, not just directly in the site itself. In this particular case it may involve injections around or above the cheek area and temples to combat the loss of volume in the cheeks. To correct the issue of wrinkles and sagging under the eyes, the tear troughs and loss of volume in the anterior cheeks may be targeted.
How does MD Codes™ work?
- Shows a series of strategic injection points, helping deliver natural-looking and subtle results.
- Demonstrates how areas of the face are indirectly improved by their neighbouring areas and why it is essential to treat the face as a whole.
- Shows patients the strategy behind their treatment and what will be achieved by injecting in specific areas.
- Highlights ‘alert areas’ in red (e.g. facial arteries where it might be dangerous to inject)
- Shows what devices and techniques should be used at each injection point, particularly when an ‘alert area’ is affected.
What Can You Expect?
Dr. Mah provides a thorough consultation process to understand how to help you look and feel your best. He will determine the goals you wish to achieve with facial fillers, answer any questions or concerns you may have, and outline a detailed treatment plan.
Fillers are injected into various areas. The number, location and depth of the injections depends on the type of fillers used and the desired results. Treatments are expertly administered by Dr. Mah. They may take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes to complete.
All Juvéderm facial fillers contain lidocaine, a localized pain reliever that enhances comfort during injection. Dr. Mah may use a topical anesthetic in certain situations if necessary. Injections are quick, simple, comfortable and non-surgical. Immediately after the treatment you may experience minor swelling or bruising that will decrease within a few hours to a few days.
With real, noticeable results, no surgery and very little recovery time, the treatment will allow you to carry on with your day to day life without putting your social life on hold or taking time off.
Health Canada advises postponing a filler treatment if you have inflamed or infected skin, pimples, cysts, rashes or hives. You should avoid fillers completely if you have a bleeding disorder, tend to scar or a have severe allergies.
