about the treatment
Over time, with ageing and environmental factors you may notice facial volume loss where your cheeks may flatten and the skin may become flat or lax.
Dermal fillers, including cheek fillers can help to combat fine lines, skin laxity and volume loss.
What are Cheek Fillers?
Cheek fillers are dermal fillers that are injected into your cheek area to add volume beneath the skin surface to lift and contour the cheek area.
This treatment is an aesthetic enhancement that can add hydration and volume to the face this treatment may also be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and skin laxity.
Other cosmetic injections may be required such as anti-wrinkle injections and beauty boosters which are micro injections of hydrating dermal filler to increase skin laxity, texture and overall skin health.
Cheek fillers are good for patients that have lost volume in their cheeks or desire a more contoured, youthful and fuller appearance.
What is The Procedure Like?
Prior to cheek filler injections in our skin clinic, Dr Amy will mark out the areas on your face that will benefit from cheek dermal filler and apply numbing cream onto those areas.
Fillers are then strategically injected into the designated areas to improve the contours on your face. The total time for your procedure will take about 45 minutes, including numbing time.
Recovery from filler injections is fast with minimum to no downtime. Results are instant with minimal swelling. For temporary swelling, apply ice wrapped in cloth or a hanky to prevent frostbite. It takes approximately 2 weeks for the injections to settle and to see the final result from the treatment. Sometimes additional dermal filler is needed to attain the desired goals.
