Cheek augmentation is a very popular treatment for patients of all ages. It can achieve two major outcomes in a face. Firstly in younger patients, augmenting and enhancing the cheekbones with high density dermal filler can create sharper more defined contoured cheeks and more noticeable cheekbones giving a more youthful and attractive appearance.
The second main outcome that can be achieve with cheek augmentation treatment is to replace midfacial volume loss which is often described by older patients as thinning and sagging of the cheeks causing lower facial jowling and lines and winkles. By replacing the lost mid facial fat in older patients with high density dermal filler, the cheeks are lifted as well as structures below such as lower face jowls and nasolabial lines and marionette lines. Thus giving a "mini face lift" appearance without invasive surgery.
Typical areas of concern that Cheek Fillers can address:
Flat or contour less cheeks.
Enhances high arched cheekbone look
Midfacial volume loss correction and lifting and reducing jowls
Giving clients a more youthful and attractive appearance.
This includes a consultation with our team. Discussion of what you are concerned about and looking for. Then medical history and consent form completion.
The procedure lasts 20-30 minutes. Topical local anaesthetic cream is applied to numb the cheeks. As a result the discomfort of the procedure is minimised. We do all the massage during the procedure so you don't have to.
The majority of people require no downtime following these procedures and can return to work and normal activities the same day. Some basic post procedure instructions apply. Swelling is very common and lasts 5-7 days post procedure.
Results are seen immediately after treatment. Further improvements are seen over the next 7 days as the filler integrates and hydrates the area. Results can be expected to last upto 18 months.
