What are Cheek Fillers?
The cheeks are a key area of the facial structure. Volume loss in the cheeks impacts the direction of gravity and creates a sagging jawline and a dour look. Cheek fillers are small injections that restore the lost volume of the area around your cheekbones which help to restore that volume loss in order to rejuvenate the appearance.
How can Cheek Fillers enhance my appearance?
As we age, we lose elasticity, fat and volume from the cheeks, which in turn results in a less youthful and more undefined facial profile. By restoring this volume with cheek fillers, we can raise the face, creating a more natural looking youthful improvement compared to surgical options. They can also smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
What to expect before, during and after your Cheek Filler treatment
Before your Cheek Filler treatment
During the initial consultation we will discuss the options and create a bespoke treatment plan, going over the benefits and possible side effects. Often, cheek fillers are not a standalone treatment, but part of an overall facial rejuvenation treatment. We’ll take a few “before” photos for you to compare the cheek filler before and after results once the treatment has finished.
During your Cheek Filler treatment
During the treatment itself we will apply a local anaesthetic lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment before we proceed to inject the cheek fillers. For the cheeks, we use Restylane, a non-permanent filler containing Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and additional vitamins and amino acids to restore lost volume and to rejuvenate the skin. HA is a natural component and something that our body makes daily. It is found throughout our body; in our skin, bones, joints and eyes. It acts as a lubricant and moisturiser due to its ability to attract and store water. Unfortunately, as we age, we are not able to produce as much HA as we did in our youth.
After your Cheek Filler treatment
After the treatment, the positive effects of the treatment should be visible immediately, especially when compared to the ‘before’ photos. The effects of this treatment will last between 6 and 12 months. Most people can return to their normal daily life immediately after the treatment. Try to avoid touching your face and keep the area clean. Also, try to sleep on your back facing up. You might experience slight side effect inconveniences in the treated area, such as swelling, mild bruising, itching or redness. These side effects typically only last between 1 and 3 days.
