As one undergoes natural aging, the collagen thins and wrinkles start to appear. Other factors like lifestyle, genetics and gravity will also weaken the collagen fibres. This causes the skin to lose it firmness and elasticity and our skin can become thinner and more wrinkled. The dynamic lines caused by our daily expressions and repetitive movements will become permanently etched on the face as fine lines and furrows.
Dermal Fillers are used to enhance your natural looks and remodel your face by restoring your skin’s volume and youthfulness. It is effective in taking years off your appearance by easing the wrinkles, grooves creases on the face, diminishing under eye hollows, replenishing volume and restoring plumpness to the lips and cheeks. Our doctor will first assess your face and depending on what your needs are, your face can be reshaped by “sharpening” or “smoothing” your features.

3. Is there anything I cannot do?
For the first 2 weeks after the treatment, patient should avoid exposure to excessive heat (eg. Going to saunas and hot springs).
4. Who is a good candidate for a dermal filler treatment?
Dermal fillers work well and are safe for almost anyone who is interested in erasing wrinkles around the face or adding volume to the lips, cheeks, or under-eye hollows. Most of the fillers we use are made from ingredients that are found naturally in the body. For people who have allergies or sensitivities to any of the ingredients in fillers, we may take extra precautions. Our doctor will review your medical history and help you determine whether dermal fillers are right for you.
5. What happens to the dermal filler ingredients as they wear off?
Dermal fillers are not meant to be permanent. Depending on the type of filler used, as well as its placement, the results of a treatment can last between several months and 2 years. The ingredients in dermal fillers gradually break down and filter out of the body through normal metabolic processes.
6. What should I do after treatment?
Following your treatment you can expect some local swelling and maybe bruising, a cold compress may help ease this, and arnica cream may be recommended to encourage the bruise to come out. You should also avoid any vigorous exercise or sun exposure for 24-48hrs.
7. Is it painful?
Dermal Fillers can be slightly uncomfortable depending on the depth on injection needed. However during the preparation of your skin, an anaesthetic cream will be applied to the area to aid your comfort, plus most of the Dermal Fillers we use have local anaesthetic mixed in with them too to further minimise any discomfort.
