Anti-Aging Injections for Wrinkle Reductions and Wellbeing at Cerulean Medical Institute

As you age, it’s normal to be concerned about aging signs like wrinkles, sagging skin, and volume loss. These are a natural product of aging, but when they cause you to look older than you feel, it can affect your confidence. If aging signs make you look tired, worn out, sad or angry, it likely doesn’t reflect the youthful energy you still might have. Fortunately, non-surgical treatments such as anti-aging injections with their high effectiveness and safety can produce stunning results.

At Cerulean Medical Institute, we offer many of the leading anti-aging injections that help you achieve natural, rejuvenating results with the deep aesthetic experience of Dr. Praven Chetty. Keep reading to learn more about aging, its causes, and how you can slow it down and reverse it with the right injectable treatments.

What Causes Aging?

Aging is a natural product of the human body, with the causes and effects extensively studied. There are generally three key factors that affect what we recognize as signs of aging, and they all play a key role in the formation of lines, wrinkles, volume loss and sagging skin.

Collagen Loss

At its core, aging means that the regenerative functions of the body slow down. Among many other things, this means that aging signs like wrinkles and fine lines begin to accumulate. This happens because of collagen loss. Collagen is a plentiful connective protein that serves a variety of key functions throughout the body. In the skin, collagen is what gives skin its youthful qualities like structure, firmness and volume. When we’re young, we have plenty of collagen, but as we age, the body slows down its production of collagen. Without it, the skin begins to lose its thickness, turgor, tightness, texture, tone and overall youthful quality. This process begins as early as your 30s, with an increasing amount of collagen lost each year.


Lifestyle habits and the environment also play a notable role in aging. For one, sun damage can very quickly break down collagen and cause the formation of wrinkles. Other health factors like smoking, pollution, and poor skincare habits can also contribute to aging. Finally, genetics can significantly impact how early you experience signs of aging and to what degree.


Throughout our lives, collagen and gravity are at odds with each other. As we lose collagen and see it replenished less often, gravity begins to take hold. This results in common signs of aging like wrinkles folds and saggy skin, where gravity exacerbates the sliding downward movement of the skin and it no longer has sufficient support.

What Are the Best Anti-Aging Injectables?

Anti-aging injectables are one of the best ways to treat aging because they can be customized to your needs. Various types of anti-aging injections exist and can treat aging in different ways. Let’s take a closer look at the different categories and what they treat best.

Wrinkles: Botox Cosmetic

Botox is one of the most well-known anti-wrinkle injectables available. In fact, millions of procedures are performed each year in Canada and globally, and it has decades of clinical use, making it a safe and effective option. Botox is an injectable muscle relaxant that helps to soften forehead wrinkles, and lines around the eyes, nose, mouth, jawline, and neck. These are areas where wrinkles tend to form because of muscle movement and facial expressions – for example squinting or frowning, clenching or grinding your teeth, etc. These facial expressions, crease and etch lines in the skin and wear down collagen over a lifetime. Botox can relax the muscles that contribute to them, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox can be an incredibly effective and versatile tool in the hands of our experienced injectors at Cerulean Medical Institute.

Volume Loss: Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers

As we lose collagen, the supportive fat pads of the face begin to lose their youthful structure and position. Imagine your more youthful self, and you might think of features like fuller, more prominent cheeks and a defined jawline. As we age, these areas of fat tend to sag and slide downward, bringing the skin with it. Dermal fillers are one of the best ways to restore this volume, lifting the skin and smoothing the appearance of deep folds and wrinkles.

Some of the most common fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in our skin that maintains hydration and volume. Fillers can serve the same purpose as collagen and fat pads, bringing the skin back up to its more youthful position. Fillers are commonly used in the mid and lower face, addressing concerns like hollow cheeks, nasolabial folds, or jowls. They’re also used to great effect for thin lips, another area where fat and collagen tend to break down or retrude on the face as we age.

Sagging Skin: Radiesse

Radiesse is a unique anti-aging injectable that serves a very effective and useful function. It’s made with unique calcium microparticles that, when injected, stimulate the production of new collagen – a process called biostimulation. As the gel fades with time, your own healthy collagen is left behind in the treatment area. This makes it a long-lasting anti-aging injection treatment option.

Radiesse is an ideal option for sagging skin because it can tighten it by improving collagen and elastin production. With more collagen and elastin, saggy skin becomes elastic and can more easily retract. It also becomes thicker, smoother and more youthful, providing overall enhancement to the treatment area. Radiesse can even be used in a wide variety of areas that experience sagging and thinning including the lower face, neck, décolletage, hands and body.
