Fillers for face? Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours.

What is it and how does it work?

These are crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid(HA). HA is found naturally in the body where its main role is to attract water and provide hydration to the skin.

The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin

AT HEMAC, we use a range of hyaluronic acid-based products with different characteristics and nature and tailor them to suit your individual needs. These injectable gels can work on its own or in combination with other treatments to naturally enhance facial features and improve skin texture.

The effects are long lasting, yet not permanent to accommodate for natural dynamic aging effects of the face. The products are so versatile that every needs can be fulfilled giving the best possible outcome.

What can it treat and what is its benefits?

Individual patients need to find which dermal filler is most suitable in their case. Medium-Acting fillers contain a jelly-like material which gives the skin softness and suppleness. These products are becoming increasingly popular because they are associated with only a minimal risk of allergic reactions. Results are visible almost immediately which is very good news for patients. They can be a great starting point for patients who are experimenting with dermal fillers. They remain the simplest and easiest fillers to use.

Thicker fillers can add definition to flat cheeks, cheekbones, chin and jaw, giving them a more sensual line, enhancing great cheekbone structure will give a more glamorous look. Used in conjunction with carefully placed Botox along the jaw and neck it works as a necklift redefining the triangle of beauty. Also widely used to replace volume loss in the chin.

Is there downtime?

Needle marks will be visible but will disappear overnight.  Most patients will be ready to show their result in public the next day. Drinking plenty of water for the first two days after treatment will result in the best possible result.

Treated areas can become lumpy initially and given time, this self-resolves. We generally would like to see patients at 2 weeks to reassess the treated areas. If lumps persists, these can easily be massaged down.

Risk of infection are rare. At HEMAC, these procedures are done by doctors only and risks are minimised as we adhere to strict standards and sterile and single use equipment only.

Allergic reactions have been reported, however, they are extremely rare which results in swelling, redness and discomfort. Sometimes removal of products with a dissolving injection may be necessary.

Am I suitable for the treatment?

Patients with the following conditions are advised to avoid filler treatments:

  1. Prone to chronic infections
  2. Prone to severe allergic reactions
  3. Pregnant or breast feeding
  4. Active cold sores
  5. Taking cortisone
  6. Taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
  7. Taking anti-coagulant medication


If there is any doubt, please discuss all matters with the treating doctor.


When can I do another treatment?

There are many factors that determine the final result.  No guarantees can be given of a particular result or how long the result will last. In general, most patients can enjoy results up to 9 or 12 months.
