As people age, the face, especially the cheek area, starts to sag due to gravity and the natural loss of youthful fat. High cheekbones and full cheeks are responsible for a large percentage of our perception of youth and cheek filler has become popular amongst celebrities as a way to camouflage age-related descent of the midface.
What Is Cheek Filler?
Cheekbone sculpting via dermal fillers is an unobtrusive way to brighten and reverse some of the natural flattening in the cheek area. A small dosage of dermal filler restores a youthful fullness to the cheeks and gently lifts up the nasolabial folds (the lines around the mouth and nose). All this without leaving the patient looking unnatural.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients require one treatment of cheek filler per year to maintain a continual effect. Be sure to follow up with your injector to create a maintenance schedule to ensure lasting results.
What Will My Results Look Like?
Treatment is visible immediately and results settle within one week. Effects can last up to a year. However, results will vary depending on how much product you are injected with and how quickly you metabolize hyaluronic acid.
How Long Does Treatment Last?
Injections can last from 10 to 20 minutes. There is very little downtime so you can resume your daily activities as soon as you would like.
Are There Any Risks Or Side Effects?
Some patients with sensitive skin may experience redness, mild bruising, or minimal bleeding at the injection sites. This will resolve within minutes to hours. Bruising may present for one to two days post treatment.
