Any type of cosmetic procedure that gets under and into your skin can be a little scary. There’s also an element of pain or discomfort to deal with.

Here at Savvy in Hong Kong, we know the challenge. We all want to look a million dollars without dropping that much in one treatment session.
In this article, we will:
- Look at what dermal fillers are
- Explain a little bit about how they work
- Tell you what you should be asking before a procedure.
- Recommend some great value clinics for fillers in Hong Kong
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are a procedure where a chemical, ordinarily hyaluronic acid, is injected into your face. There are two things fillers are effective for:
- Reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Adding volume to soft tissue areas
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in your body, so you don’t need to worry about putting something synthetic in your body. Since your body knows what it is, it will start to process the acid.
This means your dermal fillers aren’t for life. Six to 18 months is a common timeframe to expect to keep seeing results.
People who get it done will tell you it’s not the most comfortable thing in the world. You’ll normally be offered an anesthetic cream on the injection sites, which will get massaged in to numb up the area.
Then, the acid is injected into strategic areas that you’ll have discussed with your practitioner beforehand.
Where on my face can I use dermal fillers?
Wherever you have soft tissue, you can use dermal fillers. There’s a little bit of a question mark about using dermal fillers under your eyes because the FDA in America hasn’t signed off on it.
As long as you go to an experienced and reputable practitioner, it shouldn’t be a problem, though.
We’ll go through what to look for in a clinic soon.
The common areas that people get dermal fillers include:
- Mouth and lines to the nose
And it’s not uncommon to use fillers on the back of your hands if you feel they’re starting to look a little old.
Are dermal fillers like Botox?
Dermal fillers and Botox work in two very different ways. Whatever your age and lifestyle in Hong Kong, you may need one or both kinds of treatment to get the look you want.
Dermal fillers plump out your skin so your wrinkle can’t form anymore. Botox, meanwhile, freezes the muscles in your face so they can’t move enough to allow wrinkles to form.
What are the risks of dermal fillers?
Nothing that gets injected under your skin can be perfectly risk-free. It’s important to know the risks before heading to get your dermal fillers in Hong Kong.
That way, you’ll know the clinic knows their stuff when they talk you through the potential dangers.
Some common after-effects of fillers include:
- Redness, swelling, and bruising for a day or two after
- Infection at the injection site
- Lumpiness in the filler that may require surgery to remove
- Blockages in blood vessels
These are very rare, but it’s better to be informed of the risk you’re taking.
When heading into a clinic for the first time, you should ask some questions. You’re paying for a service, and skilled professionals won’t mind putting you at ease.
You’re going to want to know:
- What experience and qualifications does the person carrying out the treatment have?
- What’s the name of the product, and where was it made?
- What are the risks and potential side effects?
- What will the clinic do for you if something goes wrong?
- Does the clinic have insurance?
To give you confidence that you know what you’re letting yourself in for.
What are the best clinics for dermal fillers in Hong Kong?
When we look at the best in Hong Kong, we look at the whole package that you get. We’re not all about price; we make sure that everywhere we recommend is good value for money – that’s the essential thing.
When it comes to getting fillers in Hong Kong, you’ll probably know about some of the famous clinics in Central.
These places are expensive, mainly because of the location. Have you ever looked at commercial rent down there?
By hopping on the train and heading down to areas like Causeway Bay, TST, or Mongkok, you’re going to save a fair amount. We promise that extra time traveling will more than pay for itself with the savings you’ll make.
Here are the two best value clinics for dermal fillers in Hong Kong that we’ve found. Have we missed your hidden gem for fillers in the city? Reach out to us on Instagram or Facebook and let us know your top picks.
1. Medik Pro
With sites across the city, this chain of clinics is well known for being top value for dermal filler injections.
The clinic uses Juvederm and Teosyal branded fillers, and a trained doctor completes every injection. Just like their Botox injections, you can expect to pay a much lower price than in Central clinics.
If you head to the Medik Pro clinic in Mongkok, you can be treated by Dr. William Cheng, the primary doctor who has spent years working in Canada, too. He’s easy to talk to, and he’ll listen to your needs and deliver them.
Head down to Causeway Bay to meet Dr. Winnie Mui. Before Medispa, she used to work with Dr. Lauren Bramley & Partners, so you know she’s got excellent credentials.
Dr. Winnie’s specialty is giving you a natural look with fillers, botox, or both. Her and her colleagues use the well-known filler brands Restalyne and Juvederm.
