Due to aging, wrinkles and fine lines on our faces become noticeable. Fortunately, several cosmetic treatments are already available to rejuvenate your face and bring back its youthful look. Filler treatment helps you achieve a more youthful face without surgery.

What is Filler?

Fillers are injectable substances applied to various areas of the face and body to enhance the appearance, restore lost volume, and reduce the signs of aging. This treatment helps smooth out wrinkles, fine lines, and hollow areas to create a more youthful and refreshed look.


You can choose which type of filler to use based on their timeframe:


  • Neuramis: 6 months to 1 year
  • Stylage: 1 year and 6 months to 2 years.
  • Rediesse: 5 years


These timeframes may vary depending on the individual.

These are the possible facial areas you can apply the volume with the filler injection:


  • Forehead
  • Middle of the forehead
  • Lower eyelid
  • Nose tip
  • Nose bridge
  • Nasolabial fold


These are the facial areas where wrinkles and fine lines commonly appear. We also naturally lose fat and collagen, making our eyes hollow and skin sag. Fillers can help restore the volume and plumpness of your cheeks and under eyes.


While others want to achieve a youthful look, others desire to enhance their facial features. Some use fillers to augment and enhance their lips, adding volume and improving lip contour. Fillers can also enhance the shape and definition of the cheeks and chin, which gives a more sculpted appearance.


Other patients want to reshape and contour their noses non-surgically. This is possible with filler treatment, which is also referred to as “liquid rhinoplasty.” Fillers can also be used to restore volume to the backs of the hands, reducing the appearance of veins and tendons.

Who are Good Candidates for Filler?

Filler treatments are for those individuals who seek to enhance their appearance, address specific cosmetic concerns, and achieve a more youthful and refreshed look. While the suitability of a person depends on some factors, here are some general characteristics that may consider them a good candidate for filler treatments:

  • Age-related concerns. Due to aging, individuals become concerned with volume loss in their cheeks, under the eyes, temples, or other facial areas. Some even have noticeable wrinkles, fine lines, and folds that they wish to diminish. If you seek a solution to restore your youthful contours and fullness to your face, you can be a suitable candidate for the treatment.
  • Specific cosmetic goals. Patients who desire to enhance their lips, reshape their noses, and improve their scars non-surgically are great candidates for filler treatment.
  • Facial balance and proportion. Patients who want to achieve better facial balance and proportion by enhancing their chin or jawline.

What to Expect on Filler?

You need to consult a plastic surgeon and discuss your goals and concerns. The surgeon will evaluate your facial anatomy and recommend the appropriate type of filler and treatment plan that is best for your needs. Before the procedure, the cosmetic surgeon will provide instructions on what to prepare.

Before the procedure begins, the cosmetic surgeon will clean the treatment area to ensure its surface is free from dirt, oils, and makeup. Depending on the filler type and comfort level, the cosmetic surgeon might apply a topical numbing cream or use fillers with a local anesthetic to minimize the discomfort.

As the cosmetic surgeon has assessed the injection points to achieve your desired results, the fillers are applied to the target areas using a fine needle or a cannula. Throughout the procedure, you are monitored to ensure you are not developing any reactions and that the filler is placed correctly.

You will notice immediate results, but there might be some initial swelling, redness, and mild discomfort at the injection sites. Filler treatment has only minimal downtime. Most patients can resume their regular activities shortly after the procedure. However, Dr. Cha recommends resting for a few days and avoiding strenuous activities and extreme temperatures for a short time after treatment.

Result duration varies depending on the type of filler used. Some fillers can last several months, while others can last up to 2 years or more. Always follow the aftercare instructions and go to follow-up appointments. You might need a maintenance treatment to maintain your desired results.

For a Smooth FACE LINE

Non-surgical procedures offered at MINA PLASTIC SURGERY indicate treatments that don’t require incision, long recovery times, and enable the clients to get back to their daily lives right after the treatment. The goal of these procedures may be lifting, adding or subtracting volume depending on the clients’ needs.‍

Certain angles and adequate volume make up the ‘ideal faceline’. When a slanted, horizontal line is drawn from the forehead to the tip of the nose and chin it should make an angle of 75~80°. This is considered an ideal profile for the face. Seen from the front, the ratio of the nose tip to the upper lip, and from lower lip to the tip of the chin should be 1:2 as this is considered beautifully balanced. Also, if the angle following the bottom of each cheekbone meeting at the end of the chin is measured to be around 25~30°, it is seen as ideal.


Dr. Cha of MINA PLASTIC SURGERY also takes the mathematical measurements of a person’s face into account. Plastic surgery is part mathematics and part art. Dr. Cha combines both to produce the best results for you.
