Fresh & Youthful

Filler Injections

Dermal Filler is made up of Hyaluronic acid, a sugar that is found naturally in our bodies.  Filler is used to restore volume in areas of deflation and descent in the face. The net result is a more beautiful and youthful look. Fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, Emervel, Volbella and Sculptra can help refresh your look by smoothing out lines and bringing back volume that was once there.  Expertly Injected Filler can bring back the natural contours of your face and they can also enhance the way you look as well. Filler can help enhance your beautiful face even more. In other words, we can create your own real life   It’s all about technique. We carry only the best quality in injectable filler materials, such as Juvederm and Restylane family of fillers.

Over time the deterioration of healthy skin tissue and natural facial volume begins to diminish, resulting in an aged and deflated appearance with obvious lines, wrinkles and skin laxity. Thanks to advancements in dermal filler technology, skin fillers can help to restore lost volume and minimize the signs of aging and saggy looking skin. At Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic, our Board Certified Dermatologist has performed thousands of dermal filler treatments. Our patients benefit from years worth of medical and dermal filler experience that results in more youthful and healthy looking skin. Even though permanent fillers are not possible without surgery, dermal fillers are long lasting and a simple procedure that requires no downtime.

1. Is filler different that Botox?

Yes. One of the most common complaints for patients who do not see a Board Certified Dermatologist for filler is that their dentist or other practitioner is only able to perform a single procedure such as Botox and not able to achieve a complete result with volume restoration, or enhancement or to even understand or offer appropriate skin care. At Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic we believe that the best way to offer the best JUVEDERM in Edmonton or Filler in Edmonton is to make sure our patients have access to the best quality material and complementary therapies to look their best.

2. Who should be putting filler in my face?

Make sure that you are seeing someone with extensive experience with injecting fillers. The best way to achieve the best value and hopefully not spend more than you need to, is to see someone who knows how to make filler go the extra mile. Inexperienced injectors will need many syringes to help you get the results you are looking for. At Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic, our injector is a Board Certified Dermatologist and Cosmetic Dermatologist and Laser surgeon. He is able to compose the best treatment plan for you and make the most of your filler experience. He is also an artist. That means you will achieve an absolutely natural and beautiful result so people aren’t commenting on the “work you have had done” but on how amazing and rested you look! Make sure you have the best filler in Edmonton performed on you. Our injector is also a national trainer and is very sought after as a teacher for other injectors across the country.

3. What types of filler are there?

There are many different types of filler material available. The most common ones are called Hyaluronic Acid fillers. These are sugar like materials that instantly settle into skin and last for up to two years to restore volume and give you a beautiful and youthful appearance.

Because of the expertise of your injector at Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic and the exceptional skills and talents he possesses in artfully injecting the face for the most beautiful results, we are proud to be one of the few clinics in Alberta to offer Sculptra filler treatment. Sculptra is sometimes called “facelift in a bottle” and is a procedure done over 1-3 sessions to give patients full and beautiful results. Another major advantage of Sculptra is that it last much longer than JUVEDERM and other Hyaluronic acid fillers.

4. Are there more advanced filler materials?

Sculptra is an advanced filler technique offered by very few practitioners because it is one of the most advanced filler procedures. It also gives one of the longest lasting results and is sometimes called “facelift in a bottle”.

5. What is a premium filler?

Premium fillers are higher quality fillers that are more volumizing and long lasting. For example, many practitioners will carry the less volumizing and short lasting forms of JUVEDERM. Make sure you ask your injector what kind of filler they are using. Often, practitioners will carry non premium fillers such as JUVEDERM Ultra or Ultra plus because they are cheaper to carry for the practitioner, but you as the client should only demand the best. That is why at Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic, we believe in carrying only the best filler in Edmonton. We carry the premium filler products from JUVEDERM as well as the Emervel line of filler. We are also proud to carry Restylane and Perlane. Although it is more an investment on our part to offer the best fillers in Edmonton to our patients we feel that you shouldn’t have to pay more for your fillers. That is why you get the best price for filler in Edmonton too: 1) We carry premium fillers but don’t charge more than other practitioners who do not offer premium filler 2) We charge for the results and do not haggle or convince you to use more filler than you need.

6. Are there longer lasting fillers?

Yes, premium fillers tend to last longer than other non-premium filler materials. Sculptra is a very popular filler because of the duration of effect.

7. How much does filler cost?

Our priority is good relationships with fair and competitive pricing so our clients want to come back and maintain their beautiful results. In fact, even though your treatment will be performed by a fully board certified dermatologist and Cosmetic Dermatologist and Laser Surgeon, our prices are often less than what non physician and non-expert injectors charge!! You may wonder how this is possible. For one, we believe that you should be paying for the result, not counting syringes and limiting your full potential because other places overcharge by syringe. Rather, we believe in treating sites that require help and making the best treatment plan we can. That is why you will always get the best filler in Edmonton and the best JUVEDERM treatment in Edmonton at Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic.

8. How often should I be getting filler?

The frequency of treatments depends on the treatment site and the type of filler being used. In general, most of the premium quality Hyaluronic acids are rated for 1-2 years. In general, the body may break down the sugar sooner based on the location. We encourage patients to keep in touch and have assessments by our expert injector to determine when a top up might be a good idea. If you just want to maintain your volumes before your past filler treatments run out, you can always top up with a small amount of volume earlier so you always look your best.

9. Does Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic have the best JUVEDERM in Edmonton?

We like to think so! And so do our beautiful clients!! We believe in offering safe and natural results with lip filler. We do not want patients to look overdone and our focus is more on accenting the natural beauty of our patients’ cheeks and full face rejuvenation.
