What Are Fillers 填充剂

Since 1990’s, filler has evolved from permanent filler, such as artificial collagen, to absorbable filler, such as hyaluronic acid (HA) filler or Ellansé. Permanent filler often gives unnatural results due to its tendency to form lump. It has thereby been phased out from aesthetic practice since the introduction of absorbable fillers which are generally better in quality with excellent aesthetic outcomes.

HA filler was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2006. It acts as a ‘volumizer’ to plump up the sunken parts of the face. HA filler is safe and delivers predictable results because the ingredient of hyaluronic acid exists naturally in our skin.

In 2009, there was a breakthrough in filler technology, an innovative filler called Ellanse which acts as both ‘volumizer’ and ‘collagen stimulator’ was invented. This unique filler sought to target the root cause of aging which is the reduction of collagen production. It is designed to provide a more natural and longer-term solution in combating the signs of aging.
