If you’re considering fillers for immediate results, get the low-down on what to expect with Astique The Aesthetic Clinic.
Whether you want youngerlooking skin or hope to subtly enhance certain areas of your face, one option will give you natural, yet visible results with a short downtime: dermal fillers.
At Astique The Aesthetic Clinic, each treatment is specially formulated and customised to your needs so you can look good from every angle. It provides a comprehensive range of FDA-approved medical aesthetic treatments, including laser skin treatments, non-surgical facelifts, facials, non-invasive body contouring and skincare products for both women and men.
It also has a variety of fillers to suit every concern, from wrinkles to sagging and facial sculpting.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT FILLERS
Injectable fillers can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs. Most will fill lines and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes, with results that claim to last up to nine months.
“Unlike botox injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, injectable fillers fill the crease with one of several substances, smoothing and plumping it out,” says Dr Ng Hong Yi of Astique The Aesthetic Clinic. As a result, trouble spots are said to nearly disappear and the effect is immediately visible.
Fillers can also be used as volumisers – plumping and lifting cheeks, defining the chin and jawline, raising the nose bridge, filling out thin lips, and transforming sagging hands.
THE RIGHT FILLER FOR YOU
However, not every filler works on every type of wrinkle, adds Dr Ng. The best results – with the least risk – come from using the right one correctly, which is why fillers should only be injected by a specially-trained doctor.
The most popular types of fillers are hyaluronic acid-based, with Juvederm and Restylane being the most popular brands. Each delivers varying results. If you’re considering fillers for immediate results, get the low-down on what to expect with Astique The Aesthetic Clinic.
Side effects are rare, but can include redness, swelling and bruising at the injection site, and the results can last from several months to over a year or two. In fact, some research has shown that repeated injections may help stimulate the body’s own natural production of collagen, which may help to reduce the number of lines and wrinkles.
