FAQs About Dermal Fillers
What areas can I treat?
Dermal fillers are an amazing way to reshape and contour areas of the body. Our most popular areas to treat are lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds (smile lines), jaw, chin, and nose. We can also sometimes treat areas of the body such as the nipple. Please inquire for more areas!
Are dermal filler injections right for me?
Getting dermal filler is a huge decision and we’re here to help you make the best decision for you! Our highly trained medical staff and Doctor will be available to answer all questions and ensure you look your best when leaving. Dermal fillers are excellent options to help contour the face and create fuller features we often lose with aging.
Are dermal fillers safe?
Yes! Side effects are very minimal and can often be avoided when done by a highly trained professional. Here at Inovo Medical, our medical staff is highly trained and experienced to ensure the safety of your procedure.
How long does one session take?
Typically, each session at our clinic in Ottawa lasts around 45 minutes.
Does the treatment hurt?
The pain is minimal, as we use numbing agents to ensure comfort throughout the entire procedure. Our fillers also have lidocaine in them, which help to numb the area being treated and allow for minimal pain.
What should I do immediately after the treatment?
Following your dermal filler treatment, please gently ice the area to help with any swelling or discomfort.
When will I start to see results?
You will see results immediately after treatment. These results will slightly change over the course of 2 weeks as swelling and bruising subside. Following these 2 weeks you will see the final results of your treatment.
How long do the results last?
Results last upwards of 6 months. Certain fillers such as our Radiesse option lasts upwards of 12 months, with our lip fillers and softer dermal fillers such as Teosyal typically last around 6-8 months.
Can I get multiple injections?
Of course! Please ensure you wait 2 weeks before injecting again as swelling and bruising to the area must fully settle. If you’d like to add more to create a more dramatic appearance, please contact us.
Are there any side effects I need to know about?
Side effects of receiving a dermal filler treatment could be bruising, swelling, and mild pain. If the side effects persist or you have any aftercare questions, please call the clinic immediately to discuss.
Are lip injections safe?
Yes! Side effects are very minimal and can often be avoided when done by a highly trained professional. Here at Inovo Medical, our medical staff is highly trained and experienced to ensure the safety of your lip injection procedure.

How much do lip fillers cost?
Our Ottawa lip fillers costs $550 plus HST for a full (1.0ml) syringe.
How much lip filler do I need?
Everyone is different! Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, the amount needed could vary drastically. For more subtle-looking lips, we suggest only using half a syringe. This does an amazing job at creating a slightly fuller appearance without it being too obvious. If you’d like fuller, more dramatic lips, we’d suggest using the full syringe. However, depending on the lip anatomy of the individual, the amount of lip filler needed varies!
How long do lip fillers last?
Lip fillers last upwards of 6 months. As you accumulate filler between each treatment, results tend to last longer.
Can I get Botox for my lips?
Yes! We don’t directly inject Botox into the lips, however, we can target the surrounding muscles to create a “lip-flip”. This treatment helps shape the lip outward to create a fuller, poutier appearance without the necessary need of filler. We do recommend however, that since the results are very subtle, that this is paired with our dermal fillers option.
