This procedure is used to lift and rejuvenate your cheeks, all without the need for surgical operations. Facial fillers (made from natural gel) are used to improve the appearance of your cheeks.
HOW DOES CHEEK ENHANCEMENT WORK?
As you get older, you may begin to notice some loss of volume in the skin on your face. This is a common sign of ageing, but we can use dermal fillers to make your cheeks look a little fuller and reduce unsightly jowls and wrinkles. Alternatively, younger patients may simply desire more prominent/defined cheekbones.
WHAT DOES THE CHEEK ENHANCEMENT PROCEDURE ENTAIL?
We will begin by applying topical anaesthetic to your face. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, the dermal filler will be administered in several small injections to subtly fill out your cheeks and replenish their youthful appearance.
WHAT WILL THIS DO?
If your cheeks have started to lose volume, the facial fillers will help to reverse this classic sign of ageing, giving your cheeks added lift and a vibrant fullness. This effect will last for 12-18 months dependent on which type of filler is used.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
You may notice a mild swelling/bruising straight after the procedure. This is a perfectly normal reaction to the injections and normally subsides within a few days.
