At The New U Clinic in Nanaimo, we use dermal fillers to rejuvenate the face and whisk away the wrinkles that have formed over the years. As we age, our skin begins to sag and lose its hydration and elasticity. While people age at their own pace, due to genetics and lifestyle factors, the signs of aging while inevitably show.

What are fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable products that give different areas of the face a fuller, more youthful appearance. Different fillers perform better on different areas of the face and neck. Dr. Ute Bucksteg will formulate a custom treatment plan to address your own aesthetic goals.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance within the human body. Primarily found within the eyes and joints, hyaluronic is responsible for lubricating and hydrating these parts of the body. Since fillers, like Juvederm, are made mostly of hyaluronic acid, this makes them incredibly safe and the risk of side effects is extremely low.

The Juvederm family of products is the primary dermal filler used at The New U Clinic. Composed primarily of hyaluronic acid, these fillers are a safe, non-surgical, cosmetic anti-aging treatment.
