Cheek enhancement treatment with fillers
Many people consider full and firm cheeks to be very attractive; if you are craving high, defined cheekbones our cheek augmentation procedure should be one of the first treatments to consider. Through the use of dermal fillers, we are able to help creating those ‘apple cheeks’ that are associated with youth and attractiveness, as well as enhance the definition of those zygomatic arches that can give you an alluring, sensuous look.
Dermal fillers are pharmaceutical grade, synthetic biodegradable hyaluronic acid that is identical to our own natural hyaluronic acid. It is commonly used in aesthetic medicine as a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the skin. It can be used to minimise wrinkles, restore loss of volume, and rehydrate the skin tissues. Furthermore, it stimulates the production of our own collagen in a natural way.
Dermal fillers improve the look of your cheeks and can bring back a smoother, fuller and healthier appearance to your skin. When injected into the cheeks, it can be used to:
- Create fuller and higher cheekbones, a feature often considered attractive
- Minimise the nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines) by lifting the mid-face region
- Minimise harsh angles & shadows to achieve a smoother cheek contour
- Enhance the zygomatic arch definition, the natural curve that is often considered sexy
The duration of its effects vary between individuals depending on age, patients’ general health, the type of fillers (HA or CaHA based), the quantity of the filler injected, as well as the clients’ lifestyle. Most dermal fillers can last up to 9 months, with newer generation fillers expected to last much longer.
For cheek augmentation, we recommend use only the best Dermal Fillers as the first line of treatment, with the longest duration of effectiveness that can last up to 18 months. HA based fillers can be dissolved by Hyaluronidase, giving you a safety net and extra peace of mind should you decide to go ahead with a cheek augmentation procedure.
