INDIVIDUAL TREATMENT FOR YOUR SKIN

Cheek Augmentation


One of the best ways to treat a loss of volume in the cheek area is by the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectable material made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in our body. The function of hyaluronic acid naturally in the body is to maintain the skin’s volume and hydration. It is appropriate, therefore, that fillers made from such materials are the products used to plump up, or fill in hollows and creases in the skin in areas which lose fat or internal shape with normal ageing.

Cheek Augmentation Treatment.

A key sign of ageing can be seen in the cheek area, because as we age, cheeks become hollow and lose their volume .The skin droops, and sinks inwards, creating a gaunt look which is particularly ageing. Dermal fillers can be used for cheek augmentation, enhancing the whole face, adding volume and definition to that area. They provide a gentle lift, and this makes for a more youthful look.

 

  • How are dermal fillers used to achieve cheek augmentation?

    After assessment by one of our qualified practitioners, dermal fillers are administered by way of small injections through a fine needle around the cheek area, then massaged into the skin to encourage even coverage and instantly plumping up the cheek.

    The doctor has control over the volume of filler used, using just the right amount to create a natural – looking effect, as it is essential that the augmentation and uplift to the cheek is in harmony with the shape of the face overall.

  • Is this process of cheek augmentation painful?

    Some of the fillers used at the Clinic have inbuilt Lidocaine, an anaesthetic, to help numb the area treated so as to cause minimum discomfort.

    Others do not, and so a topical anaesthetic is applied, which has the same effect. The process is comparatively quick, and the cheeks are immediately lifted and augmented, providing instant facial rejuvenation.

  • How long does the cheek augmentation last, and are there any side effects?

    This cheek augmentation effect lasts about 6-12 months, dependent on the product used. Once the injections have been administered, the area may be a little swollen for a short time.

    Side effects are rare, as hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in humans, and over time, will be broken down and eliminated naturally through the body.

  • Who will perform the dermal fillers for cheek augmentation treatment?

    As with all Dermal Fillers treatments, Cheek Augmentation treatment for men and women is performed by one of our qualified practitioners and supervised by Doctor Maria Gonzalez.
