Fillers

What are fillers?

Fillers are a type of injectable designed to temporarily fill in wrinkles and fine lines in the face. It is an anti-aging treatment method that has been proven to restore lost volume in the face.

Like Botox treatments, fillers are a temporary option to give patients a bouncier and healthier look. Popular types of fillers are dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid, or HA fillers in Singapore. HA is naturally found in the skin tissues and is what gives skin that hydrated, youthful look.

What conditions can fillers treat?

• Fine lines and wrinkles 

• Dull, aged skin with lost elasticity 

• Indented marks on the face e.g. acne scars 

• Fillers can also be injected to the lips or the sides of your mouth to give them a fuller look

How do fillers work?

Fillers are able to promote skin elasticity by naturally inducing collagen remodeling in the skin fibers. A typical treatment procedure involves injecting collagen stimulating dermal fillers to areas on the face with deep wrinkles and fine lines as well as on the nasolabial folds. 

Patients with early to advanced signs of aging often look tired and aged with dull, dry skin due to a loss of collagen in the skin. Dermal fillers such as HA fillers are able to replenish this lost collagen and make up for lack of moisture, overall improving skin quality.

Why fillers?

Fillers are a quick and minimally-invasive way to slow down the skin’s aging process. Apart from treating signs of ageing, it is an excellent preventative treatment method for those who want to correct ageing before it sets in. When done early enough, fillers can delay the onset of fine lines and wrinkles.

Overall, fillers can reward you with a: 

• Bouncier, less tired look

• Reduction in wrinkles and fine lines

• Smoother facial appearance

What results can I expect from fillers?

Patients can expect an instant plumping effect after undergoing HA fillers treatment with a reduction in wrinkles, fine lines and indented acne scars. It will take up to 2 weeks to see the full effects of fillers treatments as they take time to settle into your tissues.

How often should you get fillers?

The number of treatments will depend on the patient’s needs or on the treatment plan you and your dermatologist has formulated. Generally, dermal or HA fillers last about 6-12 months – thereafter, maintenance sessions every 1-2 years or whenever necessary are recommended.

FAQs

Are fillers safe?
Fillers are a safe and minimally invasive anti aging treatment that helps create volume in desired areas of the face. Each session takes around 30 to 60 minutes and will be performed by a professional to ensure the best results. Take note that the duration and treatment risk also depends on the extent of the treatment, such as whether patients are undergoing lip fillers treatment or several parts of the face including the nose, cheeks and eyes, which are delicate facial areas.

It is important for those with bleeding disorders to consult a doctor prior to undergoing fillers treatment as there may be some complications related to bruising.
Are fillers painful?
Dermal filler treatments in Singapore are typically manageable. Your doctor will administer local anesthesia to help prevent any potential discomfort prior to the procedure.
Do fillers have any downtime?
There is no downtime needed for fillers, and patients will be able to resume their normal activities right after the treatment. Be sure to avoid consuming alcohol and exercising for up to 6 hours to ensure that your fillers will integrate properly into your skin.
