DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS
What are Dermal Filler Injections?
Dermal fillers are one of the most powerful tools Cosmetic Nurse Injectors use to make aesthetic changes to the face. Most contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar that binds water and holds it in the skin. As we age, our skin produces less hyaluronic acid, resulting in less hydrated, thinner skin with fine lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Injectable fillers may be used to replace and enhance the hyaluronic acid in your skin, resulting in plump, hydrated skin with improved volume and fewer lines and folds. The results are evident immediately following your treatment and are long-lasting. While there is the risk of bruising due to the injection of facial fillers, there is typically minimal recovery time. Our Cosmetic Nurse Injectors will evaluate your overall aesthetic goals and devise a holistic plan for natural rejuvenation.
Our Comprehensive Approach to Dermal Fillers
At Envy Beauty Lab + Laser, our goal is to provide our patients with natural results. Hyaluronic acid facial fillers are incredible tools that can replace lost volume in soft tissue, provide lift, and reduce lines and facial folds, but if an injector is chasing lines without considering proper facial proportions, the results can be unnatural and unattractive. During your cosmetic consultation, our Nurse Injectors will assess your facial features and discuss your cosmetic goals before planning your customized treatment.
If you are considering dermal fillers, Calgary has many options. Envy Beauty Lab + Laser has the skill and experience to use an injectable filler to give you a more youthful appearance while providing you with the highest level of care.
Fillers We Like To use at Envy Beauty Lab + Laser:
While there are many FDA approved fillers on the market in Canada, our medical providers prefer to use Radiesse, Belotero, Restylane, Teosyal and Saypha. Each of these lines carry several different fillers. Once your Nurse Injector meets with you, they will assess you and select which product will work best for your anatomy and aesthetic goals. Think of this process much like a “prescription”. They are very experienced in each of these technologies and know exactly how to choose the best product for you.
The benefits of Dermal Filler injections include the following:
Injectable filler can be administered in our clinic in 30-60 minutes.
Facial filler can effectively address many signs of aging, and immediate improvement is evident after your treatment.
When properly administered with expert knowledge of anatomy and technique, facial fillers are incredibly safe. The risk of a reaction to injectable fillers is very low, and hyaluronic acid (HA) gel can be dissolved with the enzyme hyaluronidase.
Patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately following filler injection. Please make sure to wait 24 hours before working out.
Injection of fillers is associated with minimal discomfort. Most injectable dermal fillers contain small amounts of lidocaine to numb the skin during injections.

- Wrinkles on face + neck
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Pre-jowl sulcus
- Lip augmentation
- Fine lines around the mouth
- Around the eyes
- Cheek augmentation

Reasons to Love Radiesse
Are you searching for a solution to banish those bothersome wrinkles, fine lines, or acne scars? Aging takes its toll on everyone, leaving marks on the skin for all to see. If you’re searching for a solution, you may have heard about Radiesse, a remarkable dermal filler. At Envy Beauty Lab + Laser in Calgary, AB, we offer a range of non-invasive dermatological treatments, including Radiesse, and here are six fantastic things we adore about it.
Radiesse is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment involving injecting a gel-like substance into the skin. This substance triggers collagen growth, erasing wrinkles, fine lines, and scars.
The Marvelous Ingredients
The injection comprises calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres. CaHA is a compound composed of calcium and phosphate ions, naturally occurring in the human body.
Calcium is typically found in the epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin, where it plays a crucial role in skin barrier repair and the self-renewal of skin cells, maintaining a smooth and youthful appearance.
Among other vital functions, phosphate aids in protein synthesis, tissue regeneration, and cell turnover. This helps combat the aging process by promoting skin rejuvenation.
The Mechanism of Action Once the gel is injected, it instantly lifts and volumizes the skin in the targeted area. Over time, CaHA stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, enabling your skin to generate its natural filler. The gel, comprised of oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon, forms a structure that mimics the body’s connective tissue.
Since the gel is made from naturally occurring ingredients, it is eventually reabsorbed by the body, leaving behind your own collagen. This ensures results that can last for over a year.
Versatility and Uses Radiesse works wonders for replenishing volume loss in cheeks for women and midface for men. When injected in these areas, the gel lifts the cheek segment, softening and eliminating deep nasolabial folds (the wrinkles resembling “parentheses” between the nose and mouth).
It’s also a superb choice for softening acne scars or enhancing the nasolabial fold. Furthermore, it can be molded and used as an alternative to facial implants for recontouring the face, nose, or jawline.
6 Reasons We Love Radiesse
There are numerous advantages to this remarkable dermal filler treatment. We and our valued clients appreciate its safety, non-invasiveness, convenience, versatility, natural appearance, and long-lasting results.
Safe The gel’s components naturally occur in the body, making it non-allergenic and eliminating the risk of allergic reactions. Remarkably, it is one of the few dermal fillers that do not require allergenic testing before use.
Non-Invasive Radiesse’s nature eliminates the need for surgery or hospital stays. No anesthesia is required, and you can avoid the potential complications associated with surgery.
Convenient We adore the convenience of this treatment. It’s quick, taking only about 15-20 minutes per session. There’s no downtime needed for recovery, allowing you to resume your daily activities immediately, even strenuous exercise, the day after treatment.
Versatile While primarily used to address wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars, Radiesse can be employed for various facial concerns. This versatility allows you to tackle multiple problem areas with the same material, adjusted as needed.
Natural-Looking Results Despite immediate volume enhancement, Radiesse maintains natural facial expressions, avoiding the “frozen” look associated with some other fillers. Your skin will appear youthful and natural because the gel stimulates your body’s collagen production.
Long-Lasting Unlike some dermal fillers that require frequent maintenance, Radiesse lasts due to your body naturally producing collagen as the gel is absorbed. Results can endure for over a year, saving you time and money.
