Time will come that we all get visible lines on our face, skin becomes thinner and loss of fat below the skin in the cheeks, temples, chin, nose and eye area. Maybe some of us are not aware but exposure to sunlight is the single biggest culprit in aging skin. Do you look older than you should? Who in the world wants to look older than their age? NO ONE! I am so excited about today’s post -Exposing the truth behind a beauty treatment that is gaining popularity globally – Beauty fillers.

Bloom Better with the Merz Beauty Agenda: A Forum on Fillers

Works of art are continuously restore over time – isn’t a person a work of art, too? (a famous saying by a revered aesthetic surgeon from Germany). Indeed, a person is a work of art and yet, opting to undergo aesthetic treatments as a way of enhancing beauty is still a heated topic today. Merz spotlights on the bigger picture that opting for beauty fillers shouldn’t take exception to. Merz discusses the different misconceptions that can possibly hinder women to be fully empowered when it comes to getting beauty treatments such as the Ultherapy (a US FDA-cleared noninvasive procedure that is proven to lift the Brow, Cheeks, Chin and Decollete).

Common Myths about Beauty Fillers

Whoah! Things are getting pretty interesting huh! 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.

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 power lifting and bio-stimulation properties that allows patients to naturally produce collagen and tighten their skin.

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.”

“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.

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 Modern-Day Filipina Woman

Globally, studies have shown that there is an increasing traction on the societal acceptance of beauty fillers and that it can be regarded as ‘mainstream’ to the everyday woman. In the Philippines, though there is a growing consumer demand, many still find it a challenge to admit that they have undergone aesthetic treatments. Insecurity is often equated with undergoing aesthetic treatments and the forum served as a platform for filler patients to share their experience and how Merz contributed in battling these issues.

“I have always seen myself as someone beautiful, but there are those days. I never wanted to change how I look but rather, I only wanted to accentuate the beauty that I already have. With Merz and the minimally invasive treatments they offer, I felt more empowered to make the decision of having fillers injected on me,” shared Agoo Bengzon, beauty editor.
