The loss of facial volume mainly affects the mid-face, specifically around the cheek area. Through the ageing process, the face can lose tissue density and start to appear gaunt. Combined with weakened skin that offers little support to the underlying structure, this area of the face can begin to appear hollow and the skin may begin to sag, which can also be noticeable around the jawline in the form of jowls. Cheek fillers are used to replace lost volume to the mid face, and can also help lift any sagging skin and make the face appear rejuvenated, fuller and rested.
Cheek fillers can be applied around the cheekbones, in the hollows under the eyes, as well as in the folds around the mouth, and in the jaw area for improved contouring and definition. Improved facial definition can be enhanced by the concentration of hyaluronic acid contained in the filler formula. This substance helps to improve the skin’s moisture content, working to create a greater level of hydration and an improved texture to the skin as well as smoothing out wrinkles and restoring a youthful voluminous look to the mid-face.
A numbing cream may be applied to the treatment area prior to the procedure, to help minimise discomfort.
One treatment session can provide the results the patient desires; Achieve defined cheeks that look fuller and firmer, with less wrinkles and sagging skin. A fuller mid-face can help to lift weight around the mouth and jawline to give the entire face a rejuvenated look. Cheek fillers can also be used in combination with other rejuvenation procedures for enhanced results.
Cheek fillers are generally well tolerated by most people. The filler contains a numbing agent which will aid your comfort, and we can also apply a topical numbing cream at the point of application. Some minor swelling and bruising may occur as a result of the trauma at the site of the injection, but this will soon settle in the days following your treatment.
We will discuss your desired outcome at your pre-treatment consultation. Depending on the extent of treatment required, the results can be subtle or more dramatic (in the case that a non-surgical facelift is desirable), but we don’t aim to change the way look, so you will still look just like you, only refreshed! We can create amazing results with cheek fillers that will leave you feeling confident and like your more youthful self.
You can expect to pay around £400 per ml for cheek fillers.
