I honestly believe fillers are magical. They are a downtime-free, less-invasive way of getting significant results in terms of anti-aging and facial restructuring. I've been getting them done (to increase my nose bridge, to get rid of my dark eye circles, to lengthen my face) for years now, and I have loved my results every single time.
With regular fillers though, it does take about 2 weeks to see the final result (after everything has de-swelled and settled into place).
Enter the new age of fillers - the Algeness filler. The Algeness filler is 100% natural and is a better and safer alternative to hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, setting the new benchmark for sub-dermal fillers. Algeness is made from a highly purified agarose gel derived from red algae. Algeness is also non-allergenic, and biocompatible with the human body, providing volumising and youthful effects without needing any added chemicals, solvents or cross-linked agents
I won't talk so much about what fillers are - there's plenty of information on the internet about them. What I want to show you here instead are my results after using the new Algeness filler. So first, here are my pictures from right before I got the treatment done.
My main concerns were eyebags underneath the eyes, as well as the smile lines around my mouth, as well as a little tiny bit of droopiness at the corners of my mouth.
I had my filler done at Ageless Medispa Dr Alice in Bangsar. Dr Alice is a lovely woman with a very kind manner and years and years of experience in the field. The treatment itself was very quick - a very thin layer of numbing cream was applied, and we waited for about 15 minutes for it to take effect.
Then came the injections, which took about 20mins to half an hour to complete, and then we were done!
I took a couple of pictures right after the treatment because I wanted to see the results for myself (and Algeness does promise instant results, after all):
Right after the treatment (right), I have a slightly swollen face, 2 new temporary moles thanks to the injection sites, and more volume in my face
The first thing I noticed right after I left the clinic and took a good look at myself was the insane reduction in the dark circles around my eyes (rejoice!). The next thing I noticed was the reduction in the lines around my mouth.
Though Dr Alice tried, the sagging around the sides of my mouth didn't really change, sadly. There are also grooves in my forehead (in between my brows) that she says can only be fixed with a combination of both fillers and botox (the botox to relax the muscles so that you don't end up frowning after the treatment and moving the filler into the wrong places), so I guess that's something I'll need to address in the future. I'm wondering though, if Algeness says that its fillers migrate less and are easier to shape, wouldn't that make this filler an ideal candidate to try on my frown lines?
And of course, since I love makeup so much, I had to show you a before and after in my studio, with makeup on!
On the picture in the right, it's actually been about 1 month since I got Algeness filler, and you can still see the difference in my smile lines (the photo on the left was taken about 1 week before my treatment).
What do I think? Algeness is performing pretty well, though I can't see much of a difference between this and other fillers in the market. BUT I will say I'm not experienced enough to be able to give my opinion on this. What I can say, is I love my results, and I will happily continue using the product.
