As you age, your skin loses collagen, a vital substance found throughout your body. Skin laxity (looseness) and volume loss are caused by low collagen levels thus skin thins out, loses suppleness, and begins to droop. Injections with facial fillers can help with:

  • Adding volume back to drooping skin
  • Improving the symmetry of your face
  • Plumping up your cheeks and lips
  • Smoothing out face wrinkles
  • Reducing the appearance of scars

The proper facial filler treatment can help you to achieve your desired results. Consult our MOH-accredited dermatologist for a detailed consultation and personalised treatment plan.

Risks Of Facial Filler Injections

Just like with any surgical or nonsurgical procedure, facial filler injections have risks and can cause adverse events which can range from mild to severe.

  • Mild side effects

    One can experience mild, transient side effects from the procedure such as redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising. These usually go away between 7 to 14 days, if not sooner.

  • Serious side effects

    When fillers are injected by an untrained physician, serious side effects can ensue such as the formation of lumps, allergic reactions, skin discoloration, infection, and severe swelling.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    When will I see results from a filler?

    Because fillers fill the skin, they create rapid or near-instant results. A filler can also encourage your body’s production of collagen, but this takes time.

    How long do the effects of fillers last?

    Most fillers provide temporary results that must be maintained with repeat sessions. You may consult your dermatologist to discuss a personalised treatment plan based on your expectations and desired results.

    When is it safe to start a new treatment?

    You may consult your dermatologist regarding a follow-up session once your previous treatment’s results start to disappear.
