Cheek Enhancement with Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Cheek enhancement is a non-surgical procedure designed to add volume to the cheeks, reducing the appearance of sagging skin. The result is more youthful and attractive facial contours that look completely natural. The procedure involves deep injections of Hyaluronic Acid fillers at key points in the face.
First we examine the patient’s face to identify which points would benefit most from the treatment. Then the filler is injected deep within the soft tissues of the cheek to help lift the mid-face at the same time.
As the treatment is carried out with products containing anaesthetic you should not experience pain during the procedure. When the anaesthetic wears off however a dull ache may exist for the first few hours or days and you are advised to take paracetamol regularly during this period.
After the treatment
After the treatment the area may be red and swollen. The effects of the swelling can take up to a week to resolve although the majority of the swelling should start to reduce within a couple of days, during which time you are advised to sleep on your back with an extra couple of pillows. There may also be some bruising associated with the treatment that can take a few days to settle down. At SkinMedico we advise our customers to use Juvéderm Voluma as it is in our opinion offers the best natural looking results of all the fillers in the market. Allergan, one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world, manufactures the Juvéderm Voluma. Therefore, we trust the safety profile of these products. It also provides between 18 months to 2 years of longevity for the results.
At SkinMedico, we offer you a full medical assessment prior to your first treatment. We will advise you on an individualised plan of treatment to suit your needs. This process gives you a great opportunity to ask all the questions that you might have and discuss the treatment plan. Dermal Fillers can be carried out alone or in combination with other treatments like Botox®.
