What Filipinas Need To Know About Beauty Fillers

Filipinas are naturally curious about the latest beauty regimen. I remember when I still had my beauty supplies shop, I would have customers who would admit that they’d rather go hungry than not have the latest beauty product in the market. Crazy but true! Then again, we tend to be shy and quiet about beauty treatments such as beauty fillers. No wonder there are Filipinas who suffer from beauty treatments gone wrong because they are just to shy to ask advice about it. Merz Philippines, a global leader in providing cutting-edge technology in the Aesthetics Industry, recently exposed the truth behind a beauty treatment that is gaining popularity globally – beauty fillers.

Myths About Beauty Fillers

Merz Philippines held the Merz Aesthetics Beauty Agenda: A Forum on Fillers which helped debunk the different misconceptions that can possibly hinder women to be fully empowered when it comes to getting beauty treatments. Driven by the mission to help people live better, feel better and look better, Merz, together with Dr. Wilson Ho, Dr. Gaile Robredo-Vitas, Dr. Gio Dimayuga, and Dr. Gerald Sy, provided an in-depth look on beauty fillers tackling the most common myths that exist today.

You Won’t Look Natural

Dr. Gio Dimayuga, an active consultant at the Makati Medical Center and several clinics in Manila asserts, “There is what you call the ‘overfilled’ syndrome where lip and cheek injections can result in a trout pout or pillow face.”

He mentioned that there are aesthetic companies that innovate to achieve as much natural-looking results as possible. With Merz’s 65 years of dedication to beauty since launching the first anti-wrinkle cream in 1953, they have committed to deliver natural-looking outcomes while putting their patients as the focus of every product. This is particularly evident with the patented technology behind their HA Filler, which is designed to integrate seamlessly into the skin tissue. And CaHa Filler which is considered as more than just a filler with its powerlifting and bio-stimulation properties that allows patients to naturally produce collagen and tighten their skin.

Anyone Can Do Dermal Filler Treatments

This is a common misconception faced today. The doctors in the forum stressed that it is crucial to note that only doctors can administer dermal fillers as it is a medical procedure.

Dr. Gerald Sy, the Vice President of Internal Affairs of the Philippine Association of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgeons, Inc. highlights, “It is highly essential that prospective patients only look for experienced doctors who boast of several years in the aesthetics industry for their treatments. This is how we can avoid the ‘horror stories’ that result from procedures such as the overfilled syndrome.”

Doctors Can Use Any Type of Dermal Fillers on Your Face

“Only certain fillers for certain parts of the face have been approved by the FDA – so any type of filler in the market cannot be just used on your face,” states Dr. Gaile Robredo-Vitas, resident expert at St. Luke’s Medical Centre Bonifacio Global City and various clinics in Metro Manila.

For safety reasons, the FDA recognition for fillers is an essential factor when deciding to opt for dermal fillers.

Just Any Kind of Fillers are Good For You

There are many fillers that exist in the market – the HA, CaHa and you also have the permanent or non-permanent fillers. HA filler is considered as the most commonly used fillers by medical practitioners but only doctors can recommend the best filler suited for each patient as it is a case-to-case basis.

The medical practitioners shared that though there are dermal filler ‘horror stories’ people account for, at times, many of these are not based on facts and are just misleading information. They stressed that safety is of utmost priority, together with years of proven research and technological development which is why it’s important to trust established aesthetics brands when it comes to choosing dermal fillers. Aside from having experts to discuss this, there were also patients that shared their journey in immersing themselves in aesthetics treatments.

The Modern-Day Filipina Woman

Also part of the forum was the personal sharing of beauty magazine editor, Agoo Bengzon. I have already seen Agoo’s pictures on magazines and I’ve always loved her chinita beauty. According to her, she had beauty fillers done because she wanted to accentuate the beauty that she already has. With Merz and the minimally invasive treatments they offer, she felt more empowered to make the decision of having fillers injected.
