What are hyaluronic acid fillers?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are a type of filler material that is very commonly used to rejuvenate or reshape the face and skin. The molecules in this filler mimic that of naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid found in skin. As a result, you get a natural and safe dermal filler that breaks down over time to harmless sugar molecules.
As the name implies, it can be used to “fill” certain grooves or wrinkles that form as we age: namely the laugh lines, tear troughs that give us dark circles, deep wrinkles on our foreheads, neck lines and even to rejuvenate aged, craggy looking hands. Another great application for dermal fillers is to inject to the temple area. As we age, the temples become sunken, leading to the “peanut-shaped” head. Restoring the fullness of the temples gives rise to a very youthful, subtle change that will have everyone wondering what your secret is.
Another application for hyaluronic acid fillers would be in reshaping facial features. For example, the nose, chin, lips and cheeks are easily enhanced, giving an instantly more defined chin, a more elegantly shaped nose bridge and tip, or more youthful, lifted cheeks.
Is it painful?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are premixed with a painkiller. This ensures that the injection process is highly comfortable during and after the injection.
Is there any downtime?
There is generally no downtime, except for very mild swelling and redness. This can be easily addressed with rest and cold compress. Most of our patients are back at work and important social functions on the very same day.
How long do hyaluronic acid fillers last?
Depending on the type of hyaluronic acid fillers and the area of application, they can last between 6 months to 2 years.

At Freia, we choose to use only US FDA, Singapore HSA and European CE marked fillers, a symbol of safety, reliability and satisfaction that has withstood the test of time.
