Dermal fillers in Singapore have become a popular anti-ageing and facial shaping treatment. The different types of dermal fillers make it a versatile treatment—they can fill up sunken, hollow areas of the face due to ageing, or enhance facial features for a more contoured facial shape.
Dermal fillers in Singapore are made of safe ingredients that have been developed for injection into the skin. Many of these face fillers in Singapore contain hyaluronic acid, which is a natural compound found in our body that helps to hydrate and add volume to our skin. Dermal fillers are designed for injection into the skin to plump it up and create a fuller and more youthful facade. They are also commonly used for facial sculpting in Singapore to contour and shape the face to enhance and add definition to our facial features.
Ageing causes bone resorption, which results in facial volume loss. Our skin also grows less supple and elastic, so the combined effect is saggy and lax skin that creates a gaunt and aged appearance over time.
Dermal fillers in Singapore are a useful anti-ageing treatment that plumps up the skin, adding volume to sunken areas of the face to improve the hollow appearance and lift sagging skin. These face fillers can also fill up and smoothen out the lines on our face.
Dermal fillers can be administered in the cheeks area to plump up the cheeks, fill in the nasolabial folds which are often known as laugh lines, and the “marionette lines” that extend from the corners all the way down the face. Another popular area treated with dermal fillers for anti-ageing in Singapore is the undereye area. Volumising and lifting the sunken undereye area can reduce the appearance of dark eye circles.
Areas commonly treated with dermal fillers for anti-ageing:
Dermal fillers can also be used for facial sculpting in Singapore. Facial shaping enhances and adds definition to certain features and areas.
A common use for dermal fillers is for V shape face contouring in Singapore. With 3D projection, a combination of dermal filler techniques is used for the nose, cheek, chin, and other areas of the face for V shape face contouring. Dermal fillers can be combined with facelifting treatments such as Ultherapy® in Singapore, and jaw slimming treatments with botulinum neuromodulators for the desired V shape face.
Areas commonly treated with dermal fillers for facial contouring:
Dermal fillers in Singapore are generally classified into hyaluronic acid fillers and collagen-stimulating or non-hyaluronic acid fillers.
Hyaluronic acid fillers, as the name suggests, contain hyaluronic acid, an ingredient which is safe for most people. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound found in our skin and is responsible for many functions in our body like hydration and lubrication of joints. It also aids tissue repair and stimulates the production of the connective tissue that plumps our skin.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in Singapore are typically used for both anti-ageing and facial shaping treatments and the result is instant.
Collagen-stimulating fillers use ingredients that stimulate our body’s own collagen for long-lasting results. They are also known as bio-stimulating fillers. They contain safe, synthetically produced compounds that volumise the treated area and stimulate the body’s fibroblasts to produce collagen. This results in very natural, long-lasting volumisation.
Non-hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are used for both anti-ageing and facial shaping treatments in Singapore. Results from a collagen-stimulating dermal filler treatment take a while to show as the body requires time for collagen growth. However, the effects are typically more long-lasting than hyaluronic acid dermal filler treatment.
However, instead of the type of dermal fillers, these are the three most important points to take note of for your dermal filler treatment in Singapore:
At Halley Medical Aesthetics, doctors use various techniques, such as the application of numbing cream and ice packs, as well as usage of the “Magic Needle”, to ensure your dermal filler treatment is comfortable.
The “Magic Needle”, also known as the micro-cannula, is a blunt, flexible wire that slides easily under the skin to apply the dermal filler. Why is the micro-cannula technique important? Firstly, it fills the treated area more evenly and naturally. It also minimises bleeding and lowers the chances of complications. It is thus safer, with fewer possible side effects, due to it requiring only one injection point compared to the traditional multiple injection points.
This depends on the type of dermal fillers used and the area in which it is applied. Hyaluronic acid face fillers typically last up to one to two years, whereas collagen-stimulating and non-hyaluronic acid fillers last longer.
Certain reactions, such as bruising, redness, swelling, tenderness, and slight bleeding at injection sites, may occur after a dermal filler treatment in Singapore. These reactions are rare, and they are temporary and typically resolve within a week. Do follow your doctor’s instructions for optimal recovery.
