Cheeks Definition

Non-surgical cheek enhancement is a process where dermal fillers are used to improve the appearance and shape of the cheek without the need for surgery or cheek implants.

As we age our skin loses collagen and fat resulting in a changed facial contour. The cheeks can become hollow, and skin can sag and wrinkle, resulting in an overly-aged, drawn appearance. Changes in facial contour as a result of ageing are not the only reasons you may seek cheek enhancement. You may be unhappy with your mid face shape, or would like to correct flat, unattractive cheeks and to improve the overall balance of your facial shape.

Whatever your reasons, cheek enhancement with dermal fillers can achieve significant improvement without the risks and costs associated with surgery. Cheek augmentation with dermal fillers is a quick, walk-in, walk-out treatment that restores height, definition and fullness to the cheek area. Dermal fillers are injected at varying depths to plump the cheek area and restore natural volume and fullness instantly. Cheekbones become more defined, the overlying skin looks tighter and nose to mouth folds are softened

What will my treatment Involve?

As with the use of dermal fillers for facial line reduction, treatment takes about 15-20 minutes. During treatment, dermal filler is injected with a very fine needle, following application of pain-relieving cream. You should experience minimal discomfort during treatment, with only transient redness, swelling or tenderness for 3-5 days after treatment. Any mild bruising around the treated area should resolve within a week. You will notice an immediate improvement in your facial contour with the effect lasting up to 6-12 months. Maintenance treatments are generally required every 6-12 months to maintain your desired facial shape.
