Effective Filler Injections
Full cheeks, smooth skin, plump lips: some people have them naturally, while others get a little help from dermatologists with dermal fillers. Getting hyaluronic acid filler injections at our clinic in Bangkok is an excellent option for those looking to replace lost volume by plumping the skin to remove wrinkles, folds, and sagging skin.
Fillers are effective remedies for dark circles, helping to reduce wrinkles in your cheeks and under the eyes. They also play a significant role in minimizing smile lines and enhancing the appearance of the lips.
The filler injection treatment is minimally invasive, and results are instant, lasting anywhere from six to eighteen months.

Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive way of adding fullness and creating a healthy appearance in areas of the face that have thinned due to aging. The areas of the face most prone to thinning, and where filler injections are most effective, are the lips, cheeks, under the eyes, and around the mouth. But filler injections can be used on most areas of the face, including:
- Crow's feet at the corner of the eyes
- Facial scars
- Frown lines
- Masseter muscle in the jaw
- Nasolabial folds
- Puppet lines at the corners of the mouth
- Lip lines
- Scars, including burns, acne, and wound scars
Lip Filler Injections
Lip filler injections are a sought-after treatment globally, including in Bangkok. As we age, the contours of our lips can alter; they may lose their fullness, appear more asymmetrical, and age lines become more noticeable, especially when we smile or purse them. The philtrum, the groove between the nose and the upper lip, can elongate and flatten with time. While aging is a major factor, genetics, smoking, and sun damage also contribute to these changes. Fortunately, lip fillers offer an effective solution to restore the lips' natural fullness and symmetry.
At our clinic, we begin the procedure by meticulously cleansing and sanitizing the lips. Our dermatologist then administers the filler at specific points, massaging it to guarantee uniform distribution. The entire process ranges from 15 minutes to an hour, contingent on the area's size.
Lip Filler FAQs
1. What are lip fillers?
Lip fillers are a dermal filler injected into your lips to add volume. Lip fillers consist mainly of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in your body. There are different brands of lip fillers, including Juvederm®, Perlane®, and Restylane®.
2. How long will lip fillers last?
Lip fillers generally last anywhere from 12 to 18 months. The duration has much to do with your metabolism or how fast your body turns calories into energy. Younger people tend to have a more active metabolism and burn calories faster, shortening the effectiveness of lip fillers.
Risks and Benefits
1. What are the advantages of lip fillers?
The many advantages of getting lip filler at our clinic in Bangkok include the following:
- The lip fillers and the associated procedure are entirely safe, presenting minimal risk of complications or side effects.
- Achieving fuller lips can enhance your confidence.
- Should the results not meet your expectations, lip fillers are conveniently reversible through the injection of hyaluronidase, an enzyme that dissolves the filler.
2. Do lip fillers hurt?
Lip filler injections can cause mild pain and discomfort at the injection sites. The pain should disappear within 12 to 24 hours.
3. What is the recovery time for a lip filler injection procedure?
Pain will subside after 12 to 24 hours. Swelling should disappear after 24 to 48 hours but may last for up to a week. If you plan to have lip fillers before a big event, please schedule the procedure at least two weeks before the event to ensure plenty of time for recovery.
Under-eye Filler Injections
Under-eye fillers, also known as tear trough fillers, are another popular treatment at our clinic in Bangkok. Fillers can help diminish the dark circles under the eyes. These circles often arise from shadows due to concavities beneath the lower eyelids. Injecting fillers into this area neutralizes the shadows, making dark circles a thing of the past.
During this procedure, the skin is disinfected, and a topical anesthetic or an ice pack is used to numb the area and decrease pain. The syringe containing the filler is injected into the top layers of the skin beneath your lower eyelid. The dermatologist slowly withdraws the needle after each injection and lightly massages the area to spread the filler throughout the under-eye area.
At our clinic in Bangkok, cheek fillers have gained prominence as an innovative solution for those seeking facial rejuvenation. Harnessing advanced techniques and high-quality materials, our expert practitioners ensure a tailored approach to contour, lift, and restore volume to the cheeks. These non-invasive treatments provide immediate results, giving patients a refreshed and youthful appearance. The commitment to excellence at Nirunda Clinic ensures not only an aesthetic enhancement but also a safe and pleasant experience throughout the procedure.
At our clinic in Bangkok, we offer a choice of two types of fillers:
- Juvederm Facial Filler: Made of a hyaluronic acid gel, Juvederm is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that contributes to volume and hydration. This acid gel is designed to temporarily correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is made by Allergan, the same makers of Botox.
- Restylane Facial Filler: A non-animal, biodegradable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, Restylane is a soft tissue dermal filler that adds volume to the skin through tiny injections, smoothing facial folds and wrinkles in areas around the mouth and eyes.

1. Are filler injections safe? And are there any potential side effects?
Filler injections are generally considered safe when administered by trained and certified professionals. However, like any cosmetic procedure, there are potential side effects. Common side effects include redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. These usually subside within a few days. Less common side effects include allergic reactions, lumps or bumps, discoloration, and infection. It's essential to discuss potential risks with your dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon to ensure you make an informed decision.
2. How long do the results of filler injections typically last?
The longevity of filler results varies based on the type of filler used and individual factors like metabolism, common facial expressions, and the area treated. Typically, hyaluronic acid fillers last 6 to 18 months, while other fillers, like calcium hydroxylapatite, might last up to two years or longer. Over time, the body naturally metabolizes the filler, so periodic touch-ups are needed to maintain the desired appearance.
3. What is the ideal age to consider getting filler injections?
There isn't a one-size-fits-all answer to this. People seek fillers for various reasons, including addressing age-related volume loss or enhancing certain facial features. While fillers are commonly desired in the 30s or 40s to combat early signs of aging, younger individuals might opt for them to achieve a particular aesthetic. It's vital to consult a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon to determine what's appropriate for your individual goals and needs.
4. How do I prepare for fillers?
Before your procedure:
- For about a week, avoid taking medications or supplements that can increase bleeding or bruising, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and vitamin E
- Inform your practitioner of allergies or previous adverse reactions to fillers or anesthetics
- Avoid excessive sun exposure
- Stay hydrated and avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours before the treatment
- It's a good idea to schedule the procedure when you can take it easy for a few days afterwards
5. What should I expect and do after the treatment?
After the treatment:
- You may experience mild swelling, redness, and tenderness at the injection sites, which should subside within a few days
- Avoid touching or massaging the treated areas for 24 hours
- Refrain from vigorous exercise, saunas, or excessive heat for at least 24-48 hours
- Avoid alcohol and limit sun exposure for a couple of days
- Follow any specific post-care instructions provided by your practitioner
- Contact your practitioner immediately if you experience prolonged redness, swelling, or any other unusual symptoms
Remember, choosing a reputable and experienced clinic like Nirunda in Bangkok for filler injections is vital to ensure your safety and achieve the desired results.
