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.
At Zion Aesthetic Clinic, your beauty goals are achievable through a custom-tailored treatment plan.
Where Can Dermal Face Fillers be Used?
Face Fillers – With facial fillers, you can soften the creases and wrinkles on your face, or lift the shallow contours for a more flattering and youthful appearance.
Nose Fillers – Applying nose fillers on certain parts of the nose can help create a thinner and more refined shape. These fillers can also help you achieve sharp and prominent nose bridges.
Lip Fillers – Hyaluronic acid lip fillers can help make lip tissue nourished and hydrated, bringing a fuller, plumper form. You can also use lip fillers to reshape your lips into a more desired look.
Cheek Fillers – By adding volume to your cheeks, fillers can make your cheeks look younger and fuller. Without this, your cheeks may appear sunken and more aged-looking.
Nasolabial Fold Fillers - Ageing can cause laugh lines to form. Nasolabial fold fillers help smooth out deep laugh lines that run from the outer edge of the nose to the outer corner of the lips.
Tear Trough Fillers - Tear troughs in the undereye area can make one look tired and older. Fillers can restore volume and rejuvenate the skin around the eyes to improve its appearance.
Chin Fillers - Chin fillers help give one a sharper and more defined chin. Chin fillers may also help support the jowls and prevent the down-turning of the lip muscles.
What are Hyaluronic Acid Face Fillers?
Safe and effective, injectable dermal fillers are either made from a naturally derived or synthetic substance. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) face fillers are made from naturally occurring substances. HA helps in keeping your skin plump and hydrated. Medical evidence suggests that HA fillers can naturally boost your body’s collagen production.
As we age, our bodies start producing less hyaluronic acid. This results in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. HA fillers help boost the skin’s collagen production and reduce signs of ageing on the skin. They create visible improvements to the structure, framework, and volume of the face. They can also promote the regeneration of skin cells, which can make the skin appear smoother and more radiant.
What are Juvederm Fillers?
Juvederm fillers are made primarily from hyaluronic acid which help to stimulate the skin’s collagen production, creating a smoother and firmer complexion in the treated areas. Areas it can treat include:
- Correcting age-related volume loss
- Improving the chin profile
- Correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds
- Improving the fullness of the lips
- Reducing the appearance of under eye hollows
- Enhancing moderate to severe loss of jawline definition
How Long Does Juvederm’s Results Last?
The duration of the effect of Juvederm fillers varies from person to person, and it depends on the person’s lifestyle, genetics, how quickly their body metabolises hyaluronic acid, and the type of Juvederm injection received.
Fillers for the lips and areas of the face with high mobility generally last shorter. In contrast, results generally last longer if the filler is injected in a more static part of the face. What is constant, however, is that fillers are still considered a temporary treatment that will require touch-ups in order to maintain its results at an optimal level.
Is Juvederm Safe?
Juvederm is FDA-approved and considered safe for use. Be sure to consult an experienced Ministry of Health-accredited aesthetic doctor to ensure safe and beautiful outcomes.

What are the Steps for a Dermal Fillers Procedure?
The process for dermal fillers is quick and simple, as follows:
Facial Assessment & Mapping – If you opted for a package, your aesthetic doctor will
evaluate your facial structure and skin tone. They may place a mark and take images of the regions to be
Cleansing & Anesthetizing – Before they insert the fillers, the injection sites will
be cleansed with an antibacterial agent. Your doctor may use a very cold instrument to chill the skin,
apply anaesthetic ointment, or inject local anaesthesia to help with the pain.
The Injection – Injecting the filler takes only a minute or so per site. This phase
involves injecting, massaging, and evaluating the result.
Clean-Up & Recovering – Once the desired result is achieved, the treated area and all
the markings will be cleansed. Mild swelling and tenderness may be felt but they should settle after a day
or two. Make sure to follow aftercare instructions.
What to Expect During Dermal Fillers Treatment?
Initial treatment begins with a consultation as you meet with your aesthetic doctor
. Make sure to discuss your
goals and concerns. Often, dermal filler treatments are regarded as relatively painless procedures and the
results are evident (albeit not fully) after receiving the filler injections.
