Cheek Fillers

CHEEK FILLERS

CHEEK FILLERS

Throughout life our skin and bodies change due to lifestyle and the ageing process. The face is one of the places where ageing is most noticeable whereby gravity causes muscle volume to decline, skin to loosen and wrinkles to develop. Cheek Fillers can be used to either replace volume loss in the cheeks, or to add projection and contour the face.

We tailor your treatment depending on your age and desired look to ensure you receive the best results for your treatments. Cheek Enhancement can also help to address other areas of ageing by lifting and supporting the mid-face area. We take pride in providing the best wrinkle filler and cheek augmentation treatments available.

The Cheek Filler treatment helps restore a youthful look and glow by bringing the peak back to the surface, and restores the volume from any hollowing. The results of the treatment are subtle, yet effective in keeping with the natural balances of the face.

HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WORK?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural constituent of skin, young skin is continuously moisturised from within by this naturally occurring sugar. It attracts and holds on to water to provide hydration, structure and volume.

Prior to treatment you will have an initial consultation to discuss your concerns and what you are hoping to achieve from treatment.

Local anaesthetic topical cream can be applied to the areas to be injected prior to the treatment if necessary, the skin is cleaned with an appropriate solution.

To restore volume to the mid-face and recreate youthful contours, we can use dermal fillers. Thick cross-linked hyaluronic acid injections can be placed directly above the cheekbones and moulded to define natural cheekbone structure. They can also lift areas lower down such as the nasolabial folds. Satisfaction among this procedure tends to be very high, and the fillers can last as long as 18 months.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY CONSULTATION

During your consultation a detailed medical history will be taken, helping the medical specialist to determine whether treatment is an appropriate product/treatment for you to receive and whether it will help you achieve the results that you are looking for. This will also reduce the risk of any unwanted side effects from the treatment. During this consultation the potential risks and aftercare recommendations are discussed.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST FOR?

Dermal Fillers are well known for delivering outstanding results. Results from Dermal Fillers begin to show immediately after treatment and can last around 12-18 months and can vary depending on the individual, lifestyle choices and metabolism.

To give your filler the best chance of lasting as long as possible, there are filler aftercare steps you can take. If you look after your skin with sun cream and follow a good skin care regime then your dermal fillers will last longer.

In addition to this, for the best dermal filler aftercare, do not squeeze, massage or mess around with the treated area, as this could cause the filler to break down more quickly and mean you get to enjoy the results for less time. In areas of the face that we naturally move less, your fillers will naturally last longer.

WHO IS NOT SUITABLE FOR THIS TREATMENT?

  • Anyone allergic to any of the ingredients in the dermal filler (Hyaluronic acid is a natural constituent of skin therefore you would not be allergic to this) Lidocaine is usually present within the hyaluronic acid gel formulation
