Dermal Fillers – Treating and Preventing the signs of Facial Ageing

Superior Products tailored for each patient individually

Using Dermal Fillers to treat or prevent the signs of facial ageing.

Dr. Sarah Kennea leads the Canadian Faculty on Aesthetic Injectable Medicine  (Md Codes) for Allergan Medical Institute. Dr. Kennea has rapidly become one of the most sought-after injectors on the West Coast.Our approach in Whistler is wholly dedicated to natural outcomes. Results are subtle, but nonetheless transformative, and pave the way for a lifetime of looking and feeling your best. Many of us look in the mirror daily, and what we see does not always fit with how we feel. You may feel that you look tired, angry, sad, or older than your physical age.

As we age, our skin loses certain components and becomes more prone to lines and wrinkles, which can deepen each and every year. The rate of loss is somewhat unique to each of us, It can be accelerated by lifestyle, or simply inherited genetics, The effects can vary, but typically result in sagging, lax skin and apparent lines and wrinkles.

The lines that run vertically between your nose and mouth (also called nasolabial folds) that naturally appear when you smile can become more pronounced over time. As these folds deepen, they can create unflattering shadows on your face that may make you look older.

Today’s Dermal Filler products are tailored for different needs and different areas of the face.  Dr. Kennea uses Juvederm, Belotera, and Stylage as her stable products to choose from.  Advanced dermal filler products and techniques can prevent or restore lost volume and minimize the telltale signs of aging.

How Does It Work?

Juvederm is made from a naturally occurring molecule called hyaluronic acid, which addresses the cause of volume loss by adjusting the balance of muscles in the face. The changes are subtle. The effects are dramatic. Belotero Balance (+) is designed to be a smooth, flexible gel that fills moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles, such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips. Belotero Balance (+) allows for normal movement and facial expressions. Injected areas also feel natural to the touch!

Historically physicians have looked at volume deficiency to address the problems presented by patients. But notably, this did little to address the cause. Physicians would meet a patient who wanted to get rid of their nasolabial folds, a common area to treat. However, treating only the nasolabial folds did not address the problem of why they appeared. They are a symptom.

Dr. Sarah Kennea approaches facial aesthetics in a very different way. Treatment plans come from an in-depth and informative consultation to determine a myriad of factors. Dr. Kennea then prepares an injectable plan that addresses the needs of the face as a whole. The outcome is one that is subtle, natural and age-appropriate.

Subtle changes can have dramatic effects.
