Cheek enhancement is an incredibly popular treatment, consisting of dermal filler being injected into the cheeks to define, plump and hydrate the skin. As we age and lose collagen and elastin, our cheeks may begin to droop and appear ‘saggy’, dermal fillers can restore shape and volume.
People often assume ageing starts mid 30’s, however signs of ageing begin from early 20’s fro internal changes and life style factors.
We use hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers for cheek enhancement. These fillers are non-permanent and can be dissolved. Hyaluronic acid is a substance which is naturally produced by the human body and breaks down and dissolves over time. All fillers used by us are FDA approved, meaning they are safe and used worldwide for this procedure.
Local anaesthetic cream is used to numb the area of incision. We create an entrance into the skin using a needle and we use the cannula technique to inject the filler. The blunt tip cannula method is the safest method of injecting filler, the tip being blunt meaning clinicians are less likely to cause damage or inject into anything they shouldn’t be. Once In position, we massage and inject the filler, ensuring no bumps, and both cheeks are symmetrical.
