How It Works

Fillers literally mean substances that fill gaps. Injectable fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, a component naturally present in the human body. Hyaluronic acid is found in the highest concentrations in fluids in the eyes and joints. It has a superior capability to hold on to moisture, and is a safe substance. The injected fillers are gradually absorbed by the body and become naturally dissolved.

Top Benefits

1. Immediate Effect

Fillers are directly injected to the skin where volume is needed, with immediate and visible results.

2. Reversible

There is an enzyme (hyaluronidase) that can dissolve the hyaluronic acid filler. If you are dissatisfied with the results of your filler treatment, it is possible to reverse or correct the procedure by dissolving the injected fillers with the enzyme.

3. Instant Recovery

As the treatment has no downtime, you can go back to your daily schedule right after the procedure.


Frequently Asked Q&A

Q. When can I expect to see the results?

A. Results are instantly visible. However, as fillers require time to settle inside the skin, it may appear slightly unnatural for up to two weeks. After the fillers settle, the increased volume will appear to be more natural.

Q. How long does the effect last?

A. The effects typically last between 6 months to 1 year, with each brand lasting for different durations.

Q. What are the common side effects?

A. Minor bruising and swelling could appear on the injection area. Swelling disappears after 3-4 days and bruises disappear within a week. Areas that have experience more movement (eg. nose tips, frown lines and nasolabial lines) are known to be more prone to inflammation.

Q. How painful is it?

A. There is slight discomfort when the syringe needles come into contact with the skin. Also, some people experience varying degrees of stiffness when fillers are injected inside the skin.

Q. Can you get treated simultaneously with other treatments?

A. IIf you had plastic surgery for certain area, you could be advised against filler treatment for that specific area. For instance, patients who have gone through rhinoplasty cannot go through nose filler injections. Otherwise, fillers are mostly compatible with other treatments.
