Injectable Fillers

SKINLIFE’s Expertise in Non-Surgical Facial Feature Enhancement

SKINLIFE holds the proud title of being Galderma Canada’s Top Injector Champion in 2016 and 2017. Dr. Choi, being the sole injector of the entire practice, has produced the highest volume of aesthetic injectables portfolio of Restylane® fillers and Dysport® botulinum toxin type A among all practices throughout Canada for 2 consecutive years, and is counting for the ongoing year of 2018. SKINLIFE is also the largest Restylane Skinboosters Vital Light provider in North America since its Canadian launch in 2017. Being one of the very few clinics in the world to utilize ultrasound imaging to guide filler injections for the utmost accuracy and safety, SKINLIFE is a world-class leader in providing perfectly balanced and natural results. Dr. Choi is the only Canadian physician to be invited to the prestigious society of plastic surgeons and dermatologists in Seoul, South Korea, to teach his advanced injection techniques through live demonstrations. Based on the myriad of experiences in the years of injection, as well as an educational commitment to the training of other doctors both nationally and internationally, our injecting physician prioritizes specialized patient care for each of our patients and, in doing so, maintains a spotless safety record while producing results that are consistently beautiful and natural. SKINLIFE’s expertise includes the mastery of cannula manipulation for natural, atraumatic, and long-lasting augmentation of treatment areas from the forehead to the chin, neck wrinkles, breasts, buttocks, and backs of the hands. In addition, SKINLIFE utilizes its master micro-injection technique to treat atrophic scars and fine wrinkles.


What are HA Fillers?

Injectable fillers, such as Restylane®, Emervel®, Teosyal®, Belotero®, and Juvederm®, are made of a soft tissue replacement material that is naturally occurring in the body and can be injected into various layers of the body such as the skin, fat and superior to the bone. SKINLIFE uses 100% Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers that are biologically-made, therefore harmlessly used by the body and broken down into a complete disappearance over time, for non-surgical facial shaping and augmentation.

How HA Fillers Work

At SKINLIFE, Restylane® and Restylane®’s Emervel® collection are the primary source for injectable HA fillers to correct and improve volume deficiencies for restoring a well-rounded thus youthful contour, building definitions to facial features, and balancing out existing asymmetries. They can also be used to soften creases and smooth wrinkles, as well as to improve atrophic scars by increasing the volume of depressed skin. SKINLIFE provides Health Canada-approved filler injections, performed strictly by a trained physician, as an aesthetic service to improve facial imperfections and ultimately boost the pre-existing beauty in all patients.

Ultrasound Guided Injection

SKINLIFE’s pioneering of the innovative use of high definition ultrasound imaging, implemented for visualization and detection of facial soft tissues and structures invisible to the plain eye, is used for the guidance of accurate and safe filler injections. While ultrasound has been used as a diagnostic tool for many years, the benefits of ultrasound visualization have not yet seen their days of common proliferation in the field of cosmetic medicine, although clinical studies report that the accuracy of blind injections (injections performed without image guidance) in some cases can be as low as 30%-40%. Such chances of inaccuracy can make for a considerable contributing factor to patients’ experiences of unwanted side-effects from cosmetic injections, even when performed by a highly trained physician with sufficient knowledge and experience. SKINLIFE’s leading-edge adoption of the ultrasound technology has opened new doors for the minimization of potential risks that may be associated with blind Filler injections of certain treatment areas: the performing doctor is able to visualize locations of both the needle and injectables in real time, thus deliver his technique, knowledge and experience to the intended injection site with added confidence and precision. The injector is further able to perform the necessary superficial and/or deep injection techniques so that the longevity of the results can be lengthened and the visual outcome as aesthetically pleasing as can be, while the chance of trauma, swelling and bruising is significantly reduced.

  • How soon can I see the result? How long does it last?

The results of filler injections are immediate and can last between 6-18 months, depending on the product(s) and area(s) of injection, and patient metabolism to Hyaluronic Acid (HA).

  • Is there any downtime following the injection(s)?

The downtime may include possible bruising and/or swelling, the degree of which varies between patient to patient. Unlike surgical procedures, patients are able to resume daily activities shortly after treatment, if not immediately following injections.

  • Once injected, is it reversible?

One of the strongest advantages of receiving 100% Injectable HA fillers, unlike surgical cosmetic procedures that generally yield semi-permanent or permanent results, is found in the easily adjustable or even reversible nature of the treatment outcome. SKINLIFE offers precise Filler Removal procedures using the ultrasound imaging technology to locate and remove all unwanted fillers, whether the reason for removal is a changed desire for a different shape; inappropriate technique and/or injection depth previously implemented for the placement of the existing fillers; or a decision to switch from non-surgical to surgical cosmetic adjustments.
