CHEEK FILLERS

Cheek fillers consist of the dermal filler being injected into the cheek area to restore volume, form natural contours, and lift sagging skin. As we age, our facial features naturally change including changes to the bone, muscle, fat, and skin. These facial changes lead to a loss of facial volume, sagging of the skin face, leaving the appearance looking more gaunt and tired. Dermal filler products can be used to treat and restore the volume loss in the cheek area, forming natural contours to facial features resulting in a rejuvenated and fresher appearance.

To treat the cheek area, creating a smooth and youthful appearance, a range of dermal fillers which have different densities could be used for your treatment. All Fillers used contain a local anaesthetic gel which minimises discomfort. The treatment results are immediate, and results can last up to 6 to 15 months depending on the dermal filler injected.

TREATMENT PROCEDURE

If you are taking supplements such as Vitamin A, C or E, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, fish oils, or some pain killing medicines such as aspirin or ibuprofen, then these can increase your risk of bruising and it may be advisable to stop taking them a few days before your treatment. It is also advisable that you do not drink alcohol the night before your treatment, for the same reason.

It is not advisable to have treatment if you are feeling at all unwell.

It is important you tell your practitioner about any medicines or dietary supplements you are taking, some medicines can adversely affect the way the filler works or increase your risk of bruising.

Make-up will need to be removed prior to the injections and you will be advised not to reapply it for 12 hours in order to reduce the risk of infection or irritation at the injection sites.

Be aware of the necessary aftercare advice and that your schedule allows for you to follow it.

A full consultation will be conducted with yourself and your Practitioner to discuss your treatment. In the consultation, your practitioner will assess the area of concern, answer any of your questions, show you examples of before and after treatment images and develop an effective treatment plan for you. Areas may be marked to illustrate the overall look you are looking to achieve. After the treatment plan has been confirmed by you and your practitioner, your practitioner will take you through the consent process and take some pre-treatment photographs. All treatment areas will be sterilised and prepped for treatment.

Lidocaine (numbing cream) will be applied or there is an option for a full dental block (numbing injections) to ensure your treatment is totally pain-free. The dermal filler is then injected into the lips using micro-needles or a cannula ensuring minimal discomfort and bruising. The technique will allow your practitioner to sculpt the lips to the desired shape and fullness. In many cases, your practitioner may use a round, blunt-ended micro cannula to deliver the dermal filler to the entire lips. The cannula technique requires an invisible entry point either side of the mouth, the benefits of this technique reduces the risk of bruising from injection sites.

Once treatment has been delivered, your practitioner will massage the areas, re-sterilise the treatment sites and show you your immediate results. Aftercare instructions will be explained thoroughly and provided to you by your practitioner. After all treatments you will be offered a review appointment, usually 2 weeks post-treatment, details will be sent to you in an email confirmation.

Your practitioner will carry out a full assessment of your facial profile before treatment is delivered to achieve your desired look. The Practitioner will ensure that the cheek area after treatment still has a natural lift during a smile and avoid overtreatment. This is because over treating this area can cause an unnatural appearance. Therefore, the practitioner will inform you of the placement of the filler and assess facial expressions for an overall natural appearance. The practitioner may advise on other treatment options for Volume loss directly under the eye, as this could also be the primary targets for dermal filler restoration.

The cheek dermal filler used by your practitioner will always contain lidocaine, this is a local anaesthetic providing a more comfortable and less painful experience. You will not need to take any extra pain relief prior, during or after treatment. You may experience the treatment as a mild discomfort, but it is a well-tolerated procedure. In addition, your practitioner could apply a local anaesthetic cream (numbing cream) to the treatment area for the additional numbing effect.

When your practitioner performs cheek filler treatment, the practitioner will be using reversible hyaluronic acid fillers pre-filled with lidocaine.
