Dermal fillers, specifically Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers, are injected into various depths of the skin to restore volume, smooth facial wrinkles, and enhance facial features. Commonly indicated for volume loss in areas such as the temples, cheeks, jawline, chin, and lips.

How It Works

Preparation and Injection

The skin is cleansed and prepared for the procedure. A customized treatment plan will be discussed to address specific concerns. Fillers are injected using either needles or cannulas, depending on the treatment sites.
Discomfort is minimal and can be alleviated with numbing creams or skin vibration.

Post-Treatment Care

Swelling may occur for 1-2 days post-procedure. Bruising risk can be reduced with ice packs and pressure. Vascular laser treatment is available for reducing dark bruises if necessary. Pain and tenderness at injection sites can be managed with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (e.g., Advil or Motrin).
Lumps or bumps may be normal and can be addressed if persistent or bothersome.

Maximizing Effects

Combining fillers with neuromodulators like Botox™ can enhance longevity.
H.A. Intensifier™ serum from SkinCeuticals boosts skin’s Hyaluronic Acid levels. Avoiding sleeping on injection sites, particularly for cheek treatments, can reduce compression.


Hyaluronic acid fillers are gradually degraded by enzymes in the skin. Periodic maintenance every 6-12 months helps sustain improvements. Duration of effectiveness depends on treatment sites, frequency, and intensity of movement.


How often should dermal filler treatments be repeated?

Maintenance treatments are typically recommended every 6-12 months to sustain results, depending on individual factors such as treatment sites and movement patterns.

Are there any additional steps to enhance filler effects?

Combining fillers with neuromodulators and using supportive skincare products like H.A. Intensifier™ serum can optimize results and prolong effectiveness.

What are the common risks associated with dermal fillers?

Rare but serious risks include skin ulceration and blindness. However, these are uncommon and can be minimized with proper injection techniques.

What are the costs associated with dermal filler treatments?

Fees vary based on the treatment area and injector. Dr. Tan’s fees start at specific rates for different facial regions, while the Nurse Injector’s fee is fixed per syringe. A consultation with Dr. Tan is advised to develop a personalized treatment plan and determine associated costs.
