Dermal fillers in Singapore are made of safe ingredients that have been developed for injection into the skin. Many of these face fillers in Singapore contain hyaluronic acid, which is a natural compound found in our body that helps to hydrate and add volume to our skin.
What do dermal fillers do?
Plump up skin to replace volume loss due to ageing
Contour and shape the face to enhance and add definition to our facial features.
Minimally invasive and no-downtime

Ageing causes bone resorption, which results in facial volume loss. Our skin also grows less supple and elastic, so the combined effect is saggy and lax skin that creates a gaunt and aged appearance over time.
Dermal fillers in Singapore are a useful anti-ageing treatment that plumps up the skin, adding volume to sunken areas of the face to improve the hollow appearance and lift sagging skin. These face fillers can also fill up and smoothen out the lines on our face.
Dermal fillers can be administered in the cheeks area to plump up the cheeks, fill in the nasolabial folds which are often known as laugh lines, and the “marionette lines” that extend from the corners all the way down the face. Another popular area treated with dermal fillers for anti-ageing in Singapore is the undereye area. Volumising and lifting the sunken undereye area can reduce the appearance of dark eye circles.
Areas commonly treated with dermal fillers for anti-ageing
- Tear trough, or undereye area
- Nasolabial folds, or laugh lines
- Marionette lines

Which dermal fillers are
suitable for me?
Dermal fillers in Singapore are generally classified into hyaluronic acid fillers and collagen-stimulating or non-hyaluronic acid fillers.
Hyaluronic acid fillers contain hyaluronic acid, an ingredient which is safe for most people. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound found in our skin and is responsible for many functions in our body like hydration and lubrication of joints. It also aids tissue repair and stimulates the production of the connective tissue that plumps our skin.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in Singapore are typically used for both anti-ageing and facial shaping treatments and the result is instant.
Collagen-stimulating fillers or non-hyaluronic acid fillers
Collagen-stimulating fillers use ingredients that stimulate our body’s own collagen for long-lasting results. They are also known as bio-stimulating fillers. They contain safe, synthetically produced compounds that volumise the treated area and stimulate the body’s fibroblasts to produce collagen. This results in very natural, long-lasting volumisation.
Non-hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are used for both anti-ageing and facial shaping treatments in Singapore. Results from a collagen-stimulating dermal filler treatment take a while to show as the body requires time for collagen growth. However, the effects are typically more long-lasting than hyaluronic acid dermal filler treatment.
Three important points to take note of for your
dermal filler treatment in Singapore:
- The doctor’s skill and technique
- The doctor’s qualification and experience
- The results of your dermal fillers treatment should be natural-looking
Are dermal filler
Doctors use various techniques, such as the application of numbing cream and ice packs, as well as usage of the “Magic Needle”, to ensure your dermal filler treatment is comfortable.
The “Magic Needle”, also known as the micro-cannula, is a blunt, flexible wire that slides easily under the skin to apply the dermal filler.
Why is the micro-cannula technique important?
Firstly, it fills the treated area more evenly and naturally. It also minimises bleeding and lowers the chances of complications. It is thus safer, with fewer possible side effects, due to it requiring only one injection point compared to the traditional multiple injection points.
How long do the results of dermal fillers last?
This depends on the type of dermal fillers used and the area in which it is applied. Hyaluronic acid face fillers typically last up to one to two years, whereas collagen-stimulating and non-hyaluronic acid fillers last longer.
