Dermal fillers, or 'liquid facelifts', are gaining popularity rapidly in Singapore. It provides many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime. These dermal fillers are able to add volume or reshape almost instantly, but at a fraction of the cost of a surgery. However, they are not permanent and must be maintained.

Fillers fill the face to replace or create volume. One of the most popular substance used for this procedure is hyaluronic acid. It has a safe profile and longevity record. This substance occurs naturally in our body and it has been used widely to general medicine. There is also a high concentration of hyaluronic acid found in our skin.

Nose fillers harnesses the properties of such acid to reshape an individual's nose. This job requires approximately five minutes to accomplish and has minimum risk. Patients can straighten and lift the nose bridge, reshape the tip and hide unwanted bumps. It is able to correct minor issues associated with facial symmetry, such as a deviated nasal bridge.
