Dermal Filler

In today’s world, aesthetic enhancements are no longer reserved for celebrities or the elite. Thanks to the advancements in cosmetic procedures, more and more people are exploring non-surgical treatments to enhance their natural beauty. One such popular treatment is cheek filler, which promises to add youthful volume and definition to your face. Dr. Sima, your trusted Aesthetics Doctor in Central London, can provide expert guidance in this rejuvenating journey. In this blog, we’ll delve into what the cheek filler treatment is, how it works, the stunning results it offers, its benefits, and what to expect during the recovery period. 

What is the Cheek Filler Treatment?

Cheek fillers are injections that raise the volume of the area above and around your cheekbones. This provides the illusion of a more defined bone structure. By injecting volume under your skin layer, cheek fillers can also smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.

The injection of hyaluronic acid into low-volume sections of the face, such as the cheeks, plumps up these areas and enhances the overall appearance. This can shape cheekbones and create a more defined look in the midface.

How Does it Work?

Loss of facial volume can be a result of the natural aging process or individual lifestyle and health, such as medical conditions, smoking, weight loss, and intense exposure to the sun and heat. However, the loss of volume can be restored and treated using specialized facial dermal fillers, a non-surgical and non-invasive option for many.

Cheek filler treatment using dermal fillers instantly helps restore plumpness to the cheeks. This is done by injecting strategically to the mid-face for fuller and defined cheekbones. The fillers used for the mid-face area are made of hyaluronic acid, which is safe and approved for use in the cheeks and face. Juvederm and Restylane are the two types of fillers that are highly effective and well-known for the cheeks and under the eye.

Before the treatment begins, your cheek structure and shape will be assessed in order to check your suitability for the treatment. This is in order to determine if the treatment can provide the results that you desire and expect. Once everything has been checked and the patient is happy to proceed the treatment will begin. Numbing cream is applied to the area before starting to minimize the pain and once the cream has taken its full effect, the injection is prepared with premium dermal filler.

Slowly and gradually the injection is inserted, with only one opening on each side of the cheeks, reaching all the areas and filling in the filler beneath the skin. By opening only one entry point on each side will reduce the risk of bruising, swelling, and vascular complications. We recommend not drinking any alcoholic drinks a couple of days before the treatment, to avoid major bruising and swelling.

The cheek filler treatment offers a range of benefits that make it a popular choice among individuals looking to rejuvenate their appearance. Some of the key advantages include:

Cheek Filler Results:

The results of cheek filler treatment are truly transformative. Patients often notice an immediate enhancement in their facial appearance, with fuller, more defined cheeks. The benefits include:

  1. Restored Volume: Cheek fillers effectively restore lost volume in the cheeks, creating a youthful plumpness.

  2. Enhanced Contours: The procedure accentuates your cheekbones, creating more defined facial contours.

  3. Improved Skin Quality: Some cheek fillers also promote collagen production, which can lead to improved skin quality and texture over time.

  4. Non-Surgical: It is a non-invasive alternative to surgical cheek augmentation, with little to no downtime.

  5. Long-Lasting: The results can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the type of filler used.

Cheek Filler Recovery:

Recovery from cheek filler treatment is usually straightforward and relatively mild. Patients may experience some redness, swelling, and minor bruising at the injection sites, but these side effects typically subside within a few days. To minimize these effects, you can apply ice packs as recommended by Dr. Sima.

It’s essential to follow post-treatment instructions provided by Dr. Sima, such as avoiding strenuous exercise and refraining from touching or rubbing the treated area immediately after the procedure. It’s also crucial to protect your skin from the sun.
