What are fillers?
Fillers are gel-like substances used to fill up facial depressions or lines under the skin, including the nose, chin, cheeks, forehead, nasolabial folds, under eyes and more. They are used in aesthetic practices in Singapore to give users younger-looking skin and aesthetic contours.
Fillers come in various forms: collagen, hyaluronic acid, or silicon. The former two forms can last anywhere from 9 to 12 months or longer, depending on the individual. They also come in several brands and molecular weights. The choice of which type of filler depends on the depth and area to be used, which will be assessed by the doctor. Heavier molecular fillers are used for depressions or augmenting facial features such as the nose, chin, cheeks, forehead and more, while lighter ones are used for superficial problems like finer lines around the eyes, or plumping up the lips. Different brands have different advantages and disadvantages. It is advisable to consult our doctors on which brands and types are more suitable for your concerns.

Depending on the area to be filled, local anaesthesia can be injected to numb the area. A patient can also opt for numbing cream before the procedure is done. After the filler is injected under the skin, the area is gently massaged and moulded to hold the shape that is desired. The procedure can take about 15-30 minutes, depending on the area to be filled. As with any procedure or treatment, results can vary by the individual. Contact SL Aesthetic Clinic in Singapore now to find out how we can help you achieve your desired facial contours.

The longevity of dermal fillers will depend on the type and brand of fillers (hyaluronic acid-based or non-hyaluronic acid-based) used and many other factors.
Hyaluronic acid (H.A.) dermal fillers and how long they last on average:
- Juvederm Voluma XC can last up to 2 years
- Juvederm Ultra XC and Ultra Plus can last up to 1 year
- Teosyal Ultra Deep can last up to 1 year
Non-hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers and how long they last on average:
- Ellanse range can last anywhere between 1 to 4 years depending on the option
- Radiesse can last up to 1 year or more
Other factors that contribue to how long fillers can last include your body’s metabolism and other lifestyle factors such as sleep, smoking and alcohol consumption, diet and exercise.
Aside from individual pain thresholds, this largely depends on where fillers are being used. Some areas such as the tip of the nose have more nerve endings compared to say, the chin, so it’ll be more sensitive.
We at SL Aesthetic Clinic help maximise patient comfort with pain-killers, sensation-distracting devices, local anaesthesia etc.
