Over the last 10 years, we can see exponential increase of popularity for non-surgical procedures in Malaysia. Consumers seems to have an increased interest on injectable procedures such as Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers as it does not pose so much threats and no downtime is required. According to the statistics by America’s Society of Plastic Surgery, hyaluronic acid derivative leads the popularity with more than 85% of all dermal filler procedures occurred.
Hyaluronic acid or HA is more preferred by our customer on a sole basis that it retains water to rehydrate dry skin and improve fine wrinkles, giving you more benefits.
But how can fillers actually improve your appearance?
How fillers can help change your appearance?
This is based on 3 simple phases:
#1: CREATING THE FOUNDATION for facial structure
The first phase of the filler is to create the basis of facial structures. This is useful for those who have minimal or non-existent facial features such as the cheekbones, nose bridge or jawline. As for the majority of Asians, we tend to have flattened on top nose or very flat at the tip. By using filler, we can help to create a base for the nose bridge or nose tips, and refinements can be added later.
Creating the foundation is the very first step into a full transformation of a new you. It allows the skin to adjust with the added volume, easing in more fillers to be added later on.
#2: FACIAL AUGMENTATION for features
The next phase of the filler injection is to increase facial features. This is suitable for those who already have the base or foundation of the parts that needs improvements. Usually, the doctor will create the baseline, then add on to the existing one to enhance your facial features. This phase usually is focused on the nose bridge, lips, cheek bones and jawline.
#3: REFINEMENT of facial textures
The third phase of filler is the refinements of textures. Fillers are usually used to bring back lost volume to your face, to get rid of the wrinkles and fine lines.
Why is this required?
As we are aging, our body will slow down on collagen production needed to keep our skin elastic and wrinkle-free. Based on a research, our body will start to reduce collagen production by 2% as we reached our 25th birthday.
As a result, we may experience wrinkly, sagging skin and sunken eyes or sunken cheeks. By using fillers, we are able to restore the condition of the skin, as well as boosting the collagen production from within.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW BEFORE I DO FILLER INJECTION?
DO look for credential aesthetic practitioner.
As aesthetic industry is booming in Malaysia, there are a lot of aesthetic centres without credentials to perform filler injection. Unsupervised injection can lead up to infection and faulty injection. To get the best result, we recommend you to contact us to guaranteed result and less risks.
DO consider the types or brands of the filler used.
