Dermal fillers are injectables consisting of a clear gel produced biotechnologically using stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid, water, and, in most premium products, an anaesthetic component for patient comfort.
Hyaluronic acid is a tissue-friendly substance that resembles what naturally occurs in the body. It restores structure and plumps the skin, instantly softening lines and wrinkles to provide a youthful, rejuvenated look for both men and women.
Dr. Ray’s advanced, gentle injection techniques use very fine needles, cannula, or a combination of the two to achieve optimal natural results.
Dr. Ray uses dermal fillers to lift, contour, and add volume, strategically addressing attributes that correlate with specific injection points, techniques, and products. At View Laser we carry an extensive range of dermal filler products, including but not limited to Allergan’s entire Juvéderm® line, Revanesse®, Sculptra®, and Restylane®. Comprehensive treatment plans are very personal, and vary depending on facial shape, skin quality, age, and desired outcome. Treatment plans may require between 3-20 syringes of product. Five syringe treatment sessions are recommended in order to provide maximum aesthetic and financial benefits. Each 3-5 syringe treatment session typically takes 40 minutes.
Recovery & Results
Results can be seen instantly and will continue to improve over time. Most patients can return to normal activities immediately after the treatment; however, some may experience minor bruising and swelling as part of the natural healing process. Results are long-lasting, but not permanent. Patients seeking to maintain optimal results with their comprehensive treatment program can expect to return for repeat treatments approximately every 6-12 months. Overall skin health should always be maintained with proper home care as directed by Dr. Ray.

“I have been a satisfied patient of Dr. Martin Ray of View Laser Skin Rejuvenation, Delta, B.C. for many years. Dr. Ray had been my general practitioner and I went to him originally because of his good reputation. When Dr. Ray started specializing in skin problems, I went to him for help. I had some very obvious brown spots under my eye plus actinic keratosis and other skin problems that was making me very self conscious. Dr. Ray and his staff made me very comfortable during the initial procedure I had done. Since then, I have had several other procedures done, including a CO2. I feel Dr. Ray has given me my self-confidence back.”
