What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances designed to be injected under the skin to restore lost volume, smoothen
facial lines or enhance facial contours. Injectable fillers are broadly classified into 2 categories: for
facial rejuvenation and for redefining facial features.
In Singapore, dermal fillers are a non-permanent yet long-lasting way to enhance the facial appearance with
natural-looking results. The treatment can lift cheeks, plump lips, define the jawline, smooth under-eye
circles, and remove wrinkles for vibrant and youthful skin.
