What are cheek fillers

Cheek fillers are injectable treatments that add volume and definition to the cheeks. They can be used to correct several concerns, including sunken cheeks, nasolabial folds and marionette lines. This treatment is attractive to a range of clients due to its versatility and instant results.

Cheek fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. The HA serum is injected into the skin with a fine needle. The gel immediately adds volume and lift to the treated area while also attracting and retaining moisture to keep the skin hydrated.

Enhancing the Appearance of the Cheeks

Dermal cheek fillers offer a way to improve the appearance of your cheeks without surgery. Using an injected hyaluronic acid serum, beauty practitioners can sculpt chiselled cheekbones or reduce signs of ageing such as loss of volume.

Adding Volume to the Cheeks

Throughout the course of life, faces change following the effects of ageing or weight gain and loss. Dermal fillers can help to roll back the years to create a fuller and more youthful look.

Reducing Wrinkles and Fine Lines

As well as adding volume to the cheeks, dermal fillers can help reduce wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and nose. This can be especially beneficial for those who have lost collagen due to ageing. The hyaluronic serum used within the treatment encourages the skin to retain moisture, which in turn helps to plump out the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Non-Surgical Solution

Many clients are interested in improving their appearance but aren’t sure about going under the knife. Fortunately, dermal fillers provide a non-surgical solution that can still offer impressive results.

If you’re unhappy with the results of your dermal cheek filler treatment, or you simply change your mind, there’s no need to worry. The hyaluronic acid used within the serum is naturally broken down by enzymes that can be applied safely and quickly.

Improving Self-Confidence

The benefits of dermal cheek fillers can go beyond the physical, with many clients reporting an improvement in their self-confidence following treatment. For many people, feeling good about their appearance can increase their personal and professional confidence.

How Much Filler Will I Need?

The amount of dermal filler you’ll need will depend on your desired results. Your beauty practitioner will assess your individual case and advise you on how much filler they think you’ll need to achieve your desired look.

For younger patients looking to obtain a chiselled or augmented appearance, a small amount of dermal filler can make a significant difference. However, a larger amount of filler may be required for patients who have lost a lot of volume in their cheeks due to ageing.

What is the Recovery Time for Cheek Fillers?

Dermal Cheek fillers are a minimally-invasive treatment, which means the recovery time is usually short. Results are instantly visible as the treatment will leave the skin feeling hydrated, plump, and smooth.

Most patients report any discomfort experienced during the treatment subsides soon after it has been carried out. You may experience swelling or bruising around the injection site, but this usually disappears within a few days. Any side effects are usually temporary and cause minimal disruption. You should always discuss any side effects with your practitioner if you are concerned.

What is the Difference Between Dermal Cheek Fillers and other Facial Fillers?

Dermal cheek fillers are just one type of facial filler available on the market. Other popular facial fillers include lip, nose, and jawline fillers.

The main difference between dermal cheek fillers and other facial fillers is in the area of the face they are injected into. As the name suggests, dermal cheek fillers are injected into the mid-face to improve the appearance of the cheeks and the lines between the nose and mouth and around the eyes. Other facial fillers are injected into different areas of the face to achieve different results.
