Favourite Treatment = Cheek Filler

What are cheek fillers?

Michelle: Surprisingly, our cheeks are our secret weapon to help rejuvenate our face. Over time our cheek fat pads start to diminish in volume leaving the skin less supported structurally in the midface, affecting nearby areas including the skin around our eyes and lines around our mouth. Dermal cheek fillers add volume and definition to the face, as well as a big boost of hydration, which is why it’s often called the facelift without the facelift or commonly referred to as the ‘liquid facelift’.

 

How do cheek fillers work?

Michelle: As we age, we start to lose volume in certain areas of the face which can make us look tired and sunken. This is caused by fat pad volume loss coupled with the body’s decreased ability to produce collagen and elastin. Some of the first and most noticeable areas to lose volume in our face is in the midface or cheek area under our eyes and around our eyes and cheekbones.

Cheek treatment may help address the following concerns:

  • The appearance of ageing
  • Reduce smile lines
  • Lift your jowls
  • Reduce fine lines around your eyes
  • Restore volume to your cheeks
  • Creates angles to help slim your face

How long do cheek fillers last?

Michelle: Once you reach your optimal dose, the results can last approximately 12 months plus.

How quickly will I see results?

Michelle: Given hyaluronic fillers are a gel, the results are instant. The degree of change comes down to the dose used and this is based on the desired result requested by the patient i.e. subtle vs more enhanced.
