Things to Know about Dermal or Beauty Fillers

1. Desired outcome vs Overfilled Syndromw

Dr. Gio Dimayuga, an active consultant at the Makati Medical Center and several clinics in Manila asserts said “There is what you call the ‘overfilled’ syndrome where lip and cheek injections can result in a trout pout or pillow face.”

The Overfilled Syndrome

Make sure to go only to certified clinics and doctors who can perform the procedure. Merz’s has been in the market for 65 years. They were known for its first anti-wrinkle cream in 1953. Since then, they have committed to deliver natural-looking outcomes while putting their patients as the focus of every product. This is particularly evident with the patented technology behind their HA Filler, which is designed to integrate seamlessly into the skin tissue. And CaHa Filler which is considered as more than just a filler with its power lifting and bio-stimulation properties that allows patients to naturally produce collagen and tighten their skin.

2. Look for experienced doctors to perform Dermal Fillers

Dr. Gerald Sy, the Vice President of Internal Affairs of the Philippine Association of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgeons, Inc. highlights, “It is highly essential that prospective patients only look for experienced doctors who boast of several years in the aesthetics industry for their treatments. This is how we can avoid the ‘horror stories’ that result from procedures such as the overfilled syndrome.”

3. Not all fillers are recommended as facial fillers.

Know the type of fillers to use. There are certain fillers for certain parts of the face which are approved by the FDA. For safety reasons, the FDA recognition for fillers is an essential factor when deciding to opt for dermal fillers.

Some of the fillers available today are the HA, CaHa and you also have the permanent or non-permanent fillers. HA filler is considered as the most commonly used fillers by medical practitioners but only doctors can recommend the best filler suited for each patient as it is a case-to-case basis.

What to Expect after Dermal Fillers

Beauty editor, Agoo Bengzon shares her experience after dermal fillers. “I have always seen myself as someone beautiful, but there are those days. I never wanted to change how I look but rather, I only wanted to accentuate the beauty that I already have. With Merz and the minimally invasive treatments they offer, I felt more empowered to make the decision of having fillers injected on me,”
