Topical numbing cream will be applied to the target injection sites to minimize discomfort. The doctor will then inject a measured amount of the dermal fillers into the injection sites.
This whole process should take between 10-20 minutes at clinics in Singapore, depending on the number of injection sites.
Dermal fillers are grouped into two types: hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers and non-HA or collagen-stimulating fillers. In Singapore, only HSA-approved dermal fillers are allowed. The most commonly used dermal fillers used in aesthetic clinics in Singapore are Juvederm and Restylane. Both are non-invasive.
Juvederm is a well-known HA-based dermal filler. While there are many types of Juvederm-based filler products that are tailored to target specific needs of your skin and face, they generally have the same goal of addressing the signs of ageing. Juvederm treatment is usually used in the lips (lip fillers), chin (chin fillers), cheeks and around the nose.
Restylane is a dermal filler that uses HA acid and is a collagen-stimulating treatment. It is used to minimise dark eye circles, add volume to the face, and smooth out skin.
Which dermal fillers works best depends on the condition of your skin. For best results on looser skin, softer fillers like Juvederm Volbella and Restylane help achieve a natural look. Fillers like Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft help produce results on sagging skin and specific facial structures.
In Singapore, both botox and dermal fillers achieve the same results of younger looking skin, however botox can only correct wrinkles caused by excessive face movement. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, treat different signs of ageing commonly seen in Singapore such as thinning lips and static wrinkles.
