Our Vancouver non-surgical face augmentation procedures (in Surrey) help you change the look and size of your facial features. This process can be done for brows, thin lips, nose bumps and overall face shape. To do this, we use high-grade dermal fillers and embeddable ‘suture’ threads. These allow for long-term, impermanent shaping solutions that cost a fraction of the price of surgery. Plus, they come with fewer potential side-effects (though they should always be done by an experienced physician).
With Latisse®, we can also prescribe a medicinal, topical ingredient to help hair growth and thickness on the eyelashes and eyebrows.
We regularly service clients for facial augmentation from all around the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley, including from Vancouver, Delta (Tsawwassen and Ladner), Langley, Aldergrove, White Rock, South Surrey, Cloverdale, New Westminster, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port Moody, Richmond and even as far as Abbotsford, Whistler and Washington, USA.

Get non-surgical facial augmentations by a qualified, experienced physician in Vancouver
Facial muscles and nerves on the face – especially on the lips and nose – can be very sensitive areas. Cheek lifts, brow lifts, lip injections and non-surgical nose jobs are not as simple as inserting liquid gel wherever someone wants a ‘raise.’ The entry points for dermal fillers must be intricately analyzed for each person’s facial anatomy. Other techniques used in this process – such as the type of needle, the angle it is inserted, or the thickness of material – can also affect the efficacy and safety of these procedures.
When choosing a provider for non-surgical face shaping, it is crucial to:
- Only go with a licensed doctor.
- Ensure the doctor you choose has adequate training to perform this type of medical aesthetic procedure.
Not all doctors who know how to use needles can give you a safe, quality facelift, lip injection or non-surgical nose job! Moreover, brow, lip and nose augmentations take even more, advanced training to perform safely.
Our lead doctor, Dr. Shah, is not only fully trained and experienced at using various types of dermal injections around the face. He is also called on to train others in this discipline. He has been practicing in the field for over 20 years. He regularly attends industry conferences to stay up-to-date on medical aesthetics.
At our clinic, we only use name-brand, high-quality cosmetic injection products on our patients. Many are approved by Health Canada for aesthetic use, or are commonly used in medical applications.
Since each person’s ideal face contour, brow, nose or lip shape can be different, we’ll listen closely to your concerns. We’ll work with you to achieve the profile you want. We’ll also let you know what we think will look good on you, versus what may be unachievable.
When it comes to Latisse® prescriptions in Canada, we offer virtual, online video consultations for this purchase. We can then ship the product to you afterwards. This saves you the hassle of having to come into our office.
For lip, nose and other Vancouver-area facial injections, we offer day, evening and weekend appointments. These are often quick procedures that can be done in less than an hour.
Book a consultation at our clinic to get started! We are located in Central Surrey. We’d be happy to answer questions, and to recommend a treatment path that we think will work on you.
FAQs about our Surrey, non-surgical face augmentation procedures
Still curious to know more about our Surrey non-surgical face augmentations? We provide answers to common questions about this type of procedure below. If your question is not listed, we encourage you to book a consultation at our clinic. We can answer more about your case when we meet you in person.
Are non-surgical face shaping procedures painful?
How much you’ll feel during a face reshaping procedure with needle and cannula injections will depend a lot on your pain tolerance.
Almost all of our Vancouver face injection solutions come with anaesthetic to numb the pain during the procedure.
However, keep in mind that the nose and lips can be sensitive areas, in general. So yes, it may hurt more to have reshaping done on these parts of the face. But, it is tolerable! We see many patients weekly for this service. So far, not many have decided to never come back because of the pain factor!
Procedures for Vancouver face augmentation are also not that long. You’ll be in-and-out within an hour or so, at most. The smaller the treatment area, the shorter the session will be, too. E.g. Lip filler may only take 15 to 30 minutes overall.
Are non-surgical face augmentations permanent?
Most non-surgical, injectable face fillers and muscle relaxers are not permanent. The longest-lasting filler we carry at our clinic is called Bellafill®. It lasts for up to 5 years. More commonly, however, these types of products last between 6 to 24 months, depending on a variety of factors.
Belkyra™ is a fat dissolving injectable solution designated for use under the chin (though, it can be used in other areas). It can permanently remove existing fat cells. However, it can not prevent new fat cells from forming.
Threads used during a thread lift procedure are permanently placed into the skin. However, they are made of a material that dissolves within about 12 months. They boost collagen for up to two years after the procedure.
Are there risks or side-effects associated with non-surgical face shaping procedures?
We answer this question in more detail on this page of our website. We strongly recommend you have a read of the FAQs there, if you’re interested in our Vancouver-area face augmentations.
Most of the potential side-effects associated with non-surgical face shaping have to do with how the procedure is performed. It is rarely to do with the products that are inserted into the skin (except in the case of atypical, or unknown allergies). This is why it is very important to choose a qualified, licensed doctor for cosmetic procedures.
When performing nose reshaping, lip augmentation or any procedure near the eyes, there can be more risk involved than on other parts of the face. This can include drooping, paralysis or infection at the injection sites. But again – this is only if the injector is not careful, and accidentally hits a nerve, for instance. A good injector will know how to avoid these issues as much as possible.
Should you experience any side effects, we will stick by you to find a solution. Many times, however, it will be a ‘waiting game.’ The body often heals on its own, eventually.
Temporary pain, swelling and redness are to be expected for a few days following face reshaping procedures. By comparison, this is much shorter than the healing time associated with plastic surgery.
If I’ve had facial surgery or injections in the past, will I be eligible for your non-surgical face augmentation services?
We can’t give an absolute answer to this question that will apply to everyone, and in all cases. However, we can say that most of the time, the answer is, “yes.”
To find out more, we’d need to see you for an in-person consultation, at our Surrey medspa. You can book an appointment with us, here, to get started.
If I opt for your non-surgical procedures, will that exclude me from getting other work done in the future?
Most of the time, the answer to this is, “no!” The great thing about non-surgical cosmetic procedures is that they are not permanent. Dermal filler solutions used for face reshaping often dissipate over time. You can even test out a brow, lip or nose shape with dermal fillers before deciding whether you want a permanent surgery for these areas.
Plus, by using the right techniques, dermal fillers can even be ‘mixed and matched,’ to give you the ultimate look you want. By staggering various procedure appointments, we can also extend the period of time that results last.
However, just to be on the ‘safe side,’ always notify your practitioner about cosmetic procedures you’ve had done, as well as your entire health history.
What is the cost of non-surgical face augmentations at your Surrey clinic?
We give estimates for each of our face augmentation procedures on their respective pages noted above. However, please note that absolute pricing is very hard to give without seeing you in person. We will need to learn more about what you want to achieve with our services.
To get more accurate cost information, we encourage you to book a consultation at our clinic. We are located in Central Surrey. We’ll be able to better assess which product will be suitable for your case, as well how much of a product you need, and the size of the area to be treated.
Please note that we can not take ‘instructions’ from patients to use a certain amount of product in a certain area. We can only offer pricing for procedures that we deem to be effective and safe.
We can not give guaranteed pricing on our website, over the phone or by email.
