AESTHETICS – Dermal Filler

About Dermal Fillers

Dermal Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are perfect for addressing wrinkles, folds in the skin and loss of volume with aging. HA is a safe and well tolerated, naturally occurring substance found in our body that plays a vital role in hydrating the skin and restoring its natural volume.

Dr. Wenus Ho draws on her many years of experience to contour the face like sculpted art by skillfully placing fillers in specific points to provide maximal “wow” effects for her patients. Her gentle approach and nature puts her patients at ease and makes the procedure much less uncomfortable.

Our clinic currently stocks various kinds of HA dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Revanesse) to give a fully customisable program suited to each patient’s individual needs. Effects of Dermal HA fillers vary from individual to individual and areas treated but on average can last about 12 months.

Common indications

Tear trough / Dark eye circles

Majority of patients as early as their 30’s complain of hollow, sunken under eye circles resulting in a daily feeling of looking tired and old. This area requires very careful and skillful placement of the product to avoid undesirable outcomes, of which Dr. Wenus Ho has had a lot of experience in treating. The overall effect is a fresher and less tired under eye appearance.

Nasolabial / Smile lines

These are the lines that form between the lower nose and corners of the mouth which deepen with age. New techniques of treating this area now address the root cause which comes from volume loss in the mid cheek, whereas older techniques used to result in a “sausage” appearance in the nasolabial region. Gentle restoration of volume loss in the mid face followed by subsequent treatment of the nasolabial results in a very natural youthful and freshened appearance.

V-shape 

HA fillers can also be used to achieve the much coveted V-shape face by improving the appearance of the chin. Dr. Wenus Ho is very skilled at analyzing the facial proportions and creating a chin that best suits the individual patient. The results for the V-shape is best achieved when combined with neurotoxin injections to slim the jawline.
