Derma Fillers

Derma fillers are injected into the skin to enhance or revitalize one's appearance by filling up areas on the face that have lost or require more volume. It involves a minimally-invasive aesthetic procedure that requires the direct injection of the fillers into the desired treatment area/s.

For people suffering from facial manifestations of aging, these fillers can smooth out folds and wrinkles on their facial skin, allowing them to regain their more youthful profiles. Meanwhile, the fillers can also be injected into areas like the lip and chin, to give them a fuller and more enticing shape. One novel injection technique, the 8-point lift, can achieve the effect of a subtle facelift by filling up multiple specific points on a face that has started to sag.

In availing of any filler treatment, it is imperative to ask one's physician of the type of filler to be used, to ensure that the same is of high quality and certified safe to use. It is also best to entrust this procedure to an expert physician who understands the problem not only on the surface level, but also on the level of the face's internal composition, to guarantee that the injection is properly and effectively administered.
