A NATURAL, REFRESHED YOU

In cosmetic medicine we talk about the descent, deflation and degeneration of the aging face.

To look natural, focus is on ‘age matching’. This means look at your upper face, your mid face and your lower face and making sure they all look like they are in the same age range.
This is why we look at each area of your face and choose treatments that help you look natural. The ’ triangle of youth’ is what beauty is judged by.
A fullness of the cheeks, nicely defined cheek bones, and a narrower lower face, with a tight jawline and softly rounded chin.Even the forehead should be looked at on a side profile: it should not be flat.
Too often the focus is on Botox alone, which leads to a young looking forehead and eye area. This leaves the mid face with deeper folds around the nose and mouth that look years older than the Botoxed upper face.
Or some people focus on cheek and lip filler and Botox, but leave the Marionette folds, jowls and under eye areas looking older without treatment.
Volume loss is what injectable fillers address. The flattening of the cheeks, the hollows under the eyes, the loss of lip and chin volume. Other areas where volume loss make you look older are: the temple area, the outer rim of the eyes, the mid cheek.

Hyaluronic acid fillers areused to refresh your appearance by restoring volume and balance to your face. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in your body. You lose it with age. When you lose it from within your skin in your 30’s, your skin looks thinner and dry. It attracts water so your skin looks more hydrated. It smoothes out lines and wrinkles. When injected correctly and the product is chosen well, your face will look completely natural and youthful.

Teosyal by Teoxane Laboratories, is our filler of choice. It has the closest structure to your own body’s hyaluronic acid.
The newest line RHA is a state of the art, unique formulation that has ’stretch’ capacity. This means it moves with your skin and tissue. No more risks of looking lumpy. This product meshes into your tissue and becomes undetectable.
This gives ou the most natural results.

Based on the formulation (different density of product is used in different areas). you results can last for 1 -2 years or more.

Areas treated with filler:
  • cheeks,
  • lips
  • under eyes (tear troughs)
  • outer eyes (orbital rim and crows feet)
  • nasolabial folds the fold (between nose and outer lip)
  •  hollow temples

TEOSYAL

Teosyal  is the product we prefer for volume lifts at [Better] Medical Centre. It is closest to the hyaluronic acid your body naturally makes and requires the addition of less protein. We also prefer Teosyal because it delivers more results with less product. It lasts longer. It features specialized product variations and concentrations for different areas so you will receive the best results.

THE ADVANTAGES OF COSMETIC FILLERS AT [BETTER] MEDICAL CLINIC, CALGARY, AB

Filler adds volume and hydration to a sunken, thinning face. Filler can enhance your lips, plump your cheeks and fix an irregular jaw line. Fillers such as Restaylane/Perlane, Juvederm or Teosyal can fit into your medical aesthetic options.

SEE OUR RESULTS BELOW

On this patient, notice these improvements

  1. Cheek Augmentation: we have added a more youthful facial volume by enhancing her cheeks and cheek bones,
  2. Jaw line: we have straightened out the dents in her jaw line so it now appears softer and less droopy.
  3. Lip Augmentation: her lips now look fuller yet natural – appealing but not excessive.
  4. Lower Eyelids – they look tighter and less crinkled. But no work was actually done on her eyelids. This is actually just a bonus consequence of her cheek augmentation!

Volume Lift (non-surgical) at Better Medical Centre: No Other Treatments

Lip augmentation with Teosyal: Before (left) and After (right)


This is a special, non bruising technique to add back lost volume to the mid-cheek. The loss of volume as you age or lose weight leads to sagging skin and crinkling.  Here is the result after just 1 syringe of Teosyal, part way during our treatment.
Instant results!
Another syringe will complete the result to this patient’s satisfaction.

HOW LONG DO THESE PRODUCTS LAST?

Teosyal has products that have been designed with different gel particle sizes that are utilized for different purposes – from eliminating tiny lines, to enhancing facial contours to adding back volume. The newest addition to the Teosyal product line is Ultimate – it can provide results that last longer than 18 months.

All hyaluronic acid products need a touch up after a certain length of time. Since this product, like your own skin, is a natural product, it slowly metabolizes, so your new face will gradually revert back to your old face in about 1.5 years to 2 years.

Some benefits last much longer. The injection process and adding a product into your tissues will stimulate the creation of new tissue. This enhances your results and some results will remain long after these products have been re-absorbed into your body.

HOW DO I GET THE BEST RESULTS?

Multiple factors are involved in the aging of your appearance. The stress hormones affect the breakdown of tissue. The foods you eat affect healthy cell replication. So we prefer to start with cellular aging when we treat you at Better Medical Centre. This will enable you to enjoy the best results and the longest lasting results.

The Teoysyal product line is the most effective solution for restoring volume and reducing the signs of aging by helping you look fresher and more youthful.

When the clear gel of Restylane is injected into the skin, the result in increased volume will soften wrinkles and facial folds. This volume can create facial fullness and symmetry, enhance certain facial features and lessen the signs of aging.

When injected just below the skin, hyaluronic acid adds volume, and therefore smooths fine lines, wrinkles and skin folds. You can enhance your natural facial contours and augment your lips, creating a sensual look and improve the firmness of your skin. You can look fresh and natural and avoid looking like your face has been pulled tight.

“At [Better] we do a lot of work with patients who are fitness models, fitness professionals and athletes. These patients, both men and women, carry very low body fat percentages. This leads to severe volume loss and a sunken look to the midface/ cheeks/ eyes. Carefully placed filler replaces volume, and helps the person look more radiant.”

NATURAL LIP TECHNIQUE

In the spring of 2010, Clarion Medical Technologies recruited Dr. Natasha Iyer for the trial and launch of Ultimate, their newest injectable filler. Dr. Iyer demonstrated her ‘natural lips’ technique to doctors who were already experienced in injecting filler.

She used Kiss by Teosyal to demonstrate how to give patients what they want : fuller and natural lips that don’t look obvious or overdone.

Kiss is an excellent product designed exclusively for lips. And so convenient that you can get your lips done and return to work immediately.

The Natural Lip Technique is quick, simple and only you will know. Contact us today and ask about how you can save with the Natural Lip Technique.

THERMAGE

The fillers we have discussed are not your only options in terms of achieving effective results with the appearance of your skin. While surgery can help tighten the skin, it is highly invasive and very expensive. We therefore recommend that you invest instead in the only medical procedure backed by scientific evidence to tighten, firm and lift your skin. That technique is known as Thermage.
