Facial fillers used at Myeongdong Medical & Aesthetics are FDA approved and can be combined with other procedures for an all-rounder approach in treating a wide variety of face/skin issues. Treat fine lines and wrinkles, improve saggy skin or enhance facial features with our high quality dermal fillers. Most of our facial fillers uses a substance called Hyaluronic Acid which is a natural compound found in our skin. Hyaluronic Acid is also able to hydrate and stimulate collagen which in turn plumps up the skin.
Results are immediate and there is almost no/minimal downtime. The procedure is fairly painless as most of our facial fillers contain lidocaine, which is an anaesthetic.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Are Fillers Safe and How Long Do They Last?
In the hands of accredited and well-trained doctors, dermal fillers are typically safe and long lasting. Most of the fillers used in our clinic are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring substance found in our skin. As such, there are no known allergic reactions and people with food sensitivities can receive these fillers safely. Your body will slowly metabolize the HA over a period of time.
Fillers in the skin generally last between 9 - 24 months. How fast fillers get metabolised also depends on your age, lifestyle and habits (e.g sun exposure, smoking, intensive exercise)
2. How Soon Will I Be Able to See Results?
Results are immediate and it will take about 1-2 weeks for the fillers to settle and the final results can then be seen.
3. Are There Any Side Effects?
Side effects are usually minimal. You may experience some swelling, tenderness, redness and bruising near the injection points. But they usually disappear soon after treatment and should not last more than a week.
4. Is There Any Downtime?
Most patients will experience no down time and can go about their daily activities right after treatment. To avoid filler migration and bruising, strenuous exercises, facials, going to the sauna, drinking alcohol and massaging of the treated area are discouraged for the next 48 hours.
