Dermal Fillers in Singapore

Dermal fillers are injectable hyaluronic acid gel, commonly being used for facial rejuvenation, volume restoration and facial enhancement. 

Examples of dermal fillers in Singapore are Juvederm, Teosyal, Belotero and Restylane fillers. These are hyaluronic acid fillers, which are bio-degradable and non-permanent fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most widely used fillers in the world. These fillers have been used safely for decades in millions of patients.

Losing natural collagen and fat as we age results in loss of volume in the face gradually. As we lose volume, we also lose structural support in the face, resulting in face sagging and ageing. Prominent smile lines, droopy cheeks, worsening eye bags and jowls are common signs of ageing. 

Dermal fillers, if used correctly, can help restore facial volume and improve signs of ageing.

How can Filler injection help you?

Fillers such as Juvederm fillers in Singapore are not simply for making your nose higher or your lips more attractive. There are 3 key functions of fillers for facial enhancement and rejuvenation. In order to execute these 3 functions well, the injector (doctor) has to be well trained and experienced.  

1. Restoring Structural Foundation

Fillers can be injected in specific parts of the face to restore and provide a solid foundation which forms a fundamental structural support for facial soft tissue.

2. Facial Contouring

When a good foundation is present, fillers can then be used to enhance and fine tune the facial contour that defines youthfulness.

3. Refinement

Fillers can be used for refinement and enhancement of facial features such as the lips, nose and under eye.

Each of these 3 elements requires meticulous planning, techniques and execution in order to achieve an optimal outcome with the right type and the right amount of fillers.

 

Restoring Foundation

Cheeks and Temples Fillers

Think of cheek and temple area as a foundation for a large building. It forms the most crucial structure to erect a building and keep everything in the building intact for years to come. When we lose volume and collagen around the cheeks and temples, we lose a significant part of facial structural support. It is as if a building has lost its foundation and everything on and around it starts to collapse. 

Therefore, restoring youth with dermal fillers almost always starts with injecting different sections of the cheeks and temples. Building a good structural foundation with fillers can immediately improve face and upper eye lid sagging resulting in a more youthful look.

Filler injection for the cheeks and temples often require fillers with good elasticity and lifting capacity. The choice of filler is crucial in creating a good volume and foundation for the facial structure, paving the way for further filler injection in other more refined areas later on.

Facial Contouring

Forehead Fillers

Filler treatment on the forehead can create a fuller forehead. Forehead and temples are often treated together to create a youthful upper face contour. 

A full forehead is often associated with youth and attractiveness. A sunken and uneven forehead make one appear aged.

Nasolabial folds Fillers

Nasolabial folds, often known as laugh lines, will appear deeper as we get older due to overall face sagging. Fillers can be injected into this part of the face to improve the appearance of face sagging.

Marionette lines Fillers

The folds or lines at the corner of the mouth often make us look old and angry. After building a good structural foundation, fillers can then be injected around these areas to get rid of the aged and angry look.

Jawline Fillers

Jawline becomes less defined as we age and sag. Fillers, if used correctly around the jawline area can help create a youthful and attractive lower face contour. It is often done with chin filler injection.

In men, jawline filler injection is crucial to enhance the lower face to create a more “musculine” look, which is often viewed as being more attractive and handsome. Therefore, jawline and chin fillers are very popular among men who wish to look better.

Refinement

Under eye (tear troughs) Fillers

Losing volume and collagen under the eye makes our under eye area look hollow and wrinkly, resulting in looking tired and aged. Under eye refinement can be done by injecting the right amount of suitable fillers in the tear trough area, very precisely, in order to improve tired look. 

Lips Fillers

Who does not love a pair of full and good looking lips? Lip filler can volumize and shape the lips to make us look younger and more attractive. Women who want a more “glamorous” look can get filler injection in the lips to have fuller and more “glamorous” lips. 

Chin Fillers

Chin and jawline enhancement with fillers are often done to improve overall lower face definition and projection, creating a youthful looking V shaped face.

Benefits of Filler Treatment in Singapore

Filler enhancement using hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm filler has become more favourable over surgical intervention in the recent years due to several reasons.

  • Lower risks or complications
  • Quick procedure
  • More cost efficient
  • Instant results
  • Minimal downtime
  • Most importantly, natural looking
Besides, hyaluronic acid fillers are fully reversible. They can be dissolved immediately if you do not like the outcome of the filler treatment, or if there are complications such as infection or filler migration.

Is filler injection painful?

Filler injection is very tolerable for more people. Pain and discomfort is minimal, especially with the help of numbing cream.

Most of the reputable and quality filler brands in Singapore contain anaesthesia (pain killer) known as lignocaine which immediately reduces discomfort or painful sensation during the injection procedure. The pain control from lignocaine can last up to about 2 hours. The only visible sensation may be a mild needle prick sensation when needle first enters your skin.

What about downtime?

Downtime from filler injection is minimal unlike plastic surgery. Most people will experience some redness, swelling and minor needle marks at the injection points, which will usually resolve within a few days.

Bruising can potentially happen with filler injection. This is because during injection, the needle may puncture small capillaries or blood vessels which leads to bleeding and bruising. This is not dangerous, but may take longer (usually about 1-2 weeks) to recover. Most bruising from filler injection is mild and can be concealed easily with makeup and concealer.

Is filler injection safe?

To have a safe and successful filler injection treatment, it is important to recognize that there are a few crucial factors involved. 

Remember this: Filler injection is only safe when performed by a qualified and experienced medical doctor in a controlled clinical setting The safety of filler injection heavily relies on your doctor’s knowledge of facial anatomy and possession of skills and techniques that minimize the risks of filler injections. Therefore, do not settle for less when it comes to choosing your doctor for filler injection in Singapore.

Here are some key points to consider regarding the safety of filler injections:

Qualified Practitioner

As mentioned before, it is essential to ensure that the filler injections are administered by a licensed and experienced doctor who has had the necessary training and expertise to perform the procedure safely.


Quality of Products

Using high-quality, HSA-approved fillers is crucial for safety. Reputable doctors use fillers made from biocompatible materials that have been extensively tested for safety and effectiveness. Be sure to receive filler of high quality and safety.


Proper Assessment

Before undergoing filler injections, the doctor should conduct a thorough assessment of your medical history and aesthetic goals. This helps ensure that the treatment is suitable for you and that any potential risks are minimized.


Follow-Up Care

Proper post-procedure care and follow-up appointments are essential for monitoring your progress and addressing any issues that may arise.
