Fillers in Singapore consist of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the human body. They are widely used in aesthetic medicine in order to correct volume loss, enhance facial features, smoothen fine lines, attain facial symmetry as well as to give someone a natural and healthy look. Dermal fillers can also stimulate collagen growth as well as improve skin hydration. Fillers are non-invasive and are considered a good non-surgical alternative to plastic surgery.
The doctor will assess your face condition and decide on the best treatment plan for you.
After the consultation, 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.
Our skin cells naturally produce hyaluronic acid to maintain moisture levels. When face fillers are injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid in the fillers will act as a magnet to attract moisture to the skin and face. This extra hyaluronic enables the face to pulp, resulting in smoother skin on the face. Dermal fillers are a non-invasive treatment with instant results.
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.
In Singapore, dermal fillers are suitable for anyone over 21 looking to improve skin hydration, contour facial features and add volume to their face.
