Dermal fillers are used in the treatment of a number of aesthetic issues in Singapore patients. They can be employed to plump lips, minimize or erase many common signs of aging, and add volume to crucial areas of the face to define or contour facial features, enhancing facial harmony. Today's advanced dermal fillers, when administered properly, are safe, effective and provide attractive, natural-looking results without the discomfort and recovery time associated with more invasive cosmetic procedures.
About Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are substances that are injected beneath the skin to enhance facial appearance. Most dermal fillers used today are primarily made up of hyaluronic acid – a natural chemical that is present in healthy skin to aid in maintaining hydration of deep skin layers. Some also contain ingredients that help stimulate collagen production, improving skin structure. Treatment with dermal fillers offers results that are evident immediately after treatment and typically last between 6 and 10 months, depending upon the area treated, overall skin condition and how well a patient cares for the skin.
How Dermal Fillers Can Enhance Your Appearance
Among the most common reasons that Singapore patients request treatment with dermal fillers is to reduce signs of aging in mature skin. Many of the most common signs of aging are related to volume loss, which occurs as the body's production of collagen and hyaluronic acid diminishes naturally with age. This causes a gradual thinning of the deep, collagen-producing layer of the skin – called the dermis – that provides the skin with its shape, structure, volume and elasticity. The result is lines, wrinkles and areas of loose, sagging skin. Dermal fillers can be used to restore volume in the dermis, plumping the skin for a tighter, fuller, smoother and more youthful appearance.
In Singapore patients who haven't yet begun to experience the affects skin aging, dermal fillers are frequently used for purposes that include defining the bridge of the nose, augmenting the chin, plumping the lips, enhancing the eye area or defining the cheekbones. Strategic use of dermal fillers can add definition and balance to the face, helping patients achieve their ideal facial contours by sculpting the features in ways that enhance natural beauty.
How Procedures Are Done
Dermal fillers are administered in a quick, comfortable procedure, typically taking just 15 to 30 minutes from start to finish. A fine needle is used to inject the fillers into the skin at injection points precisely planned to produce the desired aesthetic results. After-effects typically experienced immediately after treatment include mild skin redness and irritation at injection points, and, in some patients, minor facial swelling. These issues are usually resolved within a few hours.
