You can think of face fillers or dermal fillers as cosmetic facial injections. This type of procedure enhances facial features that a person may not be entirely satisfied with because of factors like skin sagging. Think of it as a form of non-surgical facial enhancement!
What are Face Fillers?
Face fillers are a gel-like substance that is injected below the surface of the skin to help improve fine lines, wrinkles, or to increase volume in areas that have started sagging. The type of filler used depends on the area and suitability to the individual, and options available include hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers or non-HA semi-permanent type of fillers.
Dermal fillers in Singapore are popular in several regions of the face: The undereye area, nose, midface or cheek region, chin fillers including jawline, forehead, and in any area that needs some form of plumping up or increased hydration. It is a great option for those who want to have subtle and natural-looking results through the guidance of a certified professional, and there is usually minimal downtime compared to surgical cosmetic procedures. It can also be dissolved (if a HA filler is used) if an individual is not satisfied with the results over time; conversely, it is safe to be repeated if a person does enjoy the results and would like to maintain it.
What are the Procedures for Face Fillers?
Step 1: Pain numbing (Optional)
In areas which have more nerve endings, a topical anaesthetic (numbing cream) will be applied for 15-30minutes to numb the area and reduce pain from the procedure. Some other types of fillers readily contain lidocaine, an anaesthetic, which also prevents pain. Generally, dermal fillers are well tolerated with minimal discomfort that may come from the prick of the needle initially entering your skin.
Step 2: Filler injection
Markings will be done over the targeted areas to guide the injection sites. Dermal fillers will be injected into those sites, and can also be moulded to fit the desired contours. Fillers are not the only procedure that can be done over the targeted areas. To obtain the expected appearances, other procedures like nose threading or Botox injections can be done to enhance results.
Step 3: Future Recommendations
Some temporary swelling or bruising may be present for a couple of hours to a day or two after the procedure. Usually it is recommended to avoid alcohol and strenuous activity for the next 24 hours, or excessive massage over the area for the next 2 weeks. You may also need to check if facials, lasers, or flying overseas is scheduled in the next 2 weeks as it may not be recommended. Sessions can be repeated safely as the filler is absorbed naturally in the body over time.
Face Fillers Price in Singapore
The price of face fillers in Singapore depends on the volume of fillers needed for the areas, and also the type of filler used. Sometimes it can be recommended that 2 or more brands are used to achieve a more holistic result that includes the deeper and superficial areas of the skin like in under-eye fillers. In general, it can start from $700 to $800 or more per 1ml syringe, which may be sufficient to correct small kinks or depressions in the skin. Semi-permanent non-HA fillers can start from $1,200 per syringe. If a larger amount of filler is needed because the areas covered are larger, such as in the chin or jawline, the price of dermal fillers may go up to $1,600 to $2,400. Having a consultation with one of our doctors will help to clarify the amount and type of filler needed for you.
