What are the types of Dermal Fillers?
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 are typically used for both anti-ageing and facial shaping treatments and the result is instant.
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 volumize the treated area and stimulate the body’s fibroblasts to produce collagen. This results in very natural, long-lasting volumization.
Non-Hyaluronic Acid 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 filler treatment.
