Always wanted to turn back the clock and give your appearance a boost, but worried about side effects of certain surgical procedures and the long downtime needed? Perhaps dermal fillers are what you are looking for.

Fillers are non-surgical and minimally invasive injectables that have been gaining popularity over the years for their quick and natural results, minus the discomfort and interruption to your daily life. As a matter of fact, the dermal filler market size crossed 1 billion USD in 2021 and is projected to continue to grow.

If you are considering getting fillers done in Singapore to add volume or shape specific areas but are apprehensive, this article might just change your mind. We will be debunking some common misconceptions many have about dermal fillers to help you make a decision – read on to find out more.

1. Results from fillers are temporary

Unlike surgery, results from fillers are not permanent, but it does last for up to two years, depending on the type of filler used . In other words, it is relatively semi-permanent until it degrades. They will break down and dissolve over time and some fillers may go away quicker in more active areas such as the lips where the muscles are constantly moving. This makes fillers a great option if you prefer something that rejuvenates your appearance temporarily and allows you to control how often you want to get it done.

2. Fillers only add volume to the area

Contrary to popular belief, fillers do not just add volume but can also contour your preferred areas. Nose fillers can be injected to add height and volume to the bridge while smoothing areas and adding contour too, for example.Fillers are also suitable for the lips to give them a fuller and poutier appearance or the jaw for better definition.

More importantly, if placed strategically,, it can help to make the face appear smaller and slimmer, giving a lifting effect.  This is also known as liquid facelift, and is a procedure widely performed regularly in Vincere Aesthetics Clinic. This procedure helps to volumize the loss of facial  fat pads, which is part of the ageing process, and helps to revert back to our youth triangle.

3. Fillers will cause side effects

Like any other medical procedures or aesthetic treatment, there will always be some form of risk associated with it. However, the good news is that severe side effects from dermal fillers are extremely rare, especially when injected into a healthy person and done by a professional and experienced doctor at an aesthetic clinic.

But take note that slight swelling, bruising and tenderness can sometimes happen and is normal after getting fillers done.They typically subside within a few days but if these side effects persist, do not hesitate to get in touch with your doctor.

4. Results from fillers take a while to show up

You will be glad to know that results are often instantaneous with fillers. You should be able to see an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, plumping up of lost facial volume, fuller lips or a higher nose bridge immediately after, depending on your preferences and needs.

Nevertheless, dermal fillers require about 2-4 weeks for them to fully settle in and unveil the final result. So a piece of advice is to wait for swelling to subside a little more before deciding if you like your new look.

5. The more fillers the better

Fillers are an alternative to invasive surgery but even so, overdoing it can cause results to turn out looking unnatural. The right dosage is also essential when it comes to fillers and this will usually be advised by a professional aesthetic doctor. Optimal dosage is required to achieve the desired outcome, contrary to popular belief, low dosage can also cause unnatural or no result. It is therefore important to find the right doctor who will give you a concise recommendation of how much fillers you need in order to achieve the desired outcome.
