Losing the natural plumpness you should have in your cheeks can look ageing. If you have experienced a dramatic weight loss recently, have a naturally slim build or are simply just getting older, you may be dealing with the issue of your cheeks having a more 'tired' or gaunt look.
This can obviously have a huge impact on your self-confidence and self-esteem. Linia Cosmetic provides cheek filler treatment to bring your confidence and skin back to life.
The cheeks are an integral part of your face and cheeks that are healthy can provide support to your eyes while enhancing your jawline, making jowls less visible and eliminating any shadows you have around the mid face area.
Simply put, nice and plump cheeks are crucial if you want that aesthetically appealing heart shaped face. In fact, 96% of people reported they were “more pleased with their reflection in the mirror” after having cheek fillers
Whether it’s that you have a naturally flatter cheekbones or have lost definition and volume in your cheeks as you’ve aged, the results can be the same.
Whatever the cause or reason for your flat cheeks that lack definition, we can help you at LINIA Skin Clinic.
We’ve aimed to answer all of your questions about this dermal filler treatment below:
What Are Cheek Fillers?
Cheek fillers are a type of dermal filler and are designed specifically, as the name suggests, to be applied to the cheeks.
The dermal fillers we use, which are normally Juvederm, consist of a naturally occuring and therefore, very safe ingredient called Hyaluronic Acid.
Hyaluronic Acid is a sugar that is actually produced in our bodies.
How Does the Cheek Filler Procedure Work?
The dermal filler, Juvederm is injected just below the surface of the skin around the cheeks to help plump up the tissue.
How Long Does a Cheek Filler Treatment Take?
Again, this will depend on how much cheek filler is being used, your skin type and how you cope with the procedure. However, the average cheek filler lift is usually completed in 45 to 60 minutes.
How Long Does it Take to Produce Visible Results?
One of the reasons why dermal fillers like those used for our cheek filler lifts are so popular is because of how instantaneous the results are.
Generally, you will notice a marked difference in the shape, plumpness and definition of your cheeks immediately after the injections have been applied.
However, it is important to keep in mind that only in the days following the procedure once your skin has fully settled will you see the full results.
How Long Do Dermal Cheek Fillers Last?
Although results may vary from person to person, the cheek lift filler procedure we offer normally produces results that last for around 24 months.
Whether it actually lasts this long is another matter and highly dependent on you.
Why do we say that?
Well, factors such as your own:
- general health
- skin type
- amount of cheek filler that was required to achieve the desired results
can all have an effect, both positively and negatively.
Does the Treatment Hurt?
We will do all we can to limit the amount of pain you experience.
Juvederm Voluma, one of dermal fillers we used for cheek filler procedures includes lidocaine built into it.
This is an anaesthetic that can help improve your comfort during the treatment.
Additionally, though, we also apply a special anaesthetic cream to the treated area to help reduce pain and discomfort.
Most medical and cosmetic procedures carry with them a measure of discomfort and pain, but because you are in capable and safe hands of our expert and fully qualified professional practitioners, many of our customers have complained about any pain or discomfort they’ve felt.
Is the Procedure Safe?
As noted previously, because cheek fillers/dermal fillers contain naturally-occurring ingredients that are found in our body, so they are very safe.
There is always a risk when having any cosmetic or medical surgery. the main problem is that you could suffer from an allergic reaction to the Hyaluronic acid, though this is very rare (around 1 in 20,000 cases being recorded).
Are There Any Side Effects of Cheek Fillers?
The side effects that are possible from having a cheek filler lift relate more to the actual actual injection process than the Hyaluronic Acid used. Possible side effects, therefore, include:
- Lumps around the treated areas
- Tenderness around the treated areas
- Slight swelling
You can reduce the effects of these through massage.
There is also a chance, if you are prone to suffering from cold sores that you may suffer from one after you’ve had a cheek filler lift.
On rare occasions, the formation of scabs can cause disruption in the smallest vessels and result in many cases, scarring.
The key to your cheek filler lift being a safe procedure is by having it carried out by a fully qualified and experienced professional.
At LINIA Cosmetic Surgery all our specialists have spent many years working as a professional cosmetic surgeons and practitioners.
