A loss of volume due to ageing or genetics can cause our cheeks to sag and lose definition. Some people have very low or undefined cheekbones and this can cause us to be self-conscious about the overall shape and silhouette of our face.
High cheekbones are usually a blessing by genetics, but even those of us that have this can feel that some of the definition and shape has been lost during the ageing process. As we age, we lose volume in our face due to lower collagen production. Cheek filler is a way to combat that volume loss.
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. Cheek fillers can be modified after insertion, meaning that you can add more filler to the injection site until you achieve your desired result. Dermal fillers will not only quickly and effectively change the shape and feel of your cheeks but reintroduce the height of the cheekbone to offer a more youthful result. AMS Aesthetics Clinic offers dermal filler injections for cheek and chin enhancement to add definition, contour, and proportion to the face. All treatments are carried out by experienced cosmetic practitioners. Cheek enhancements may be desirable either to improve the definition of the cheekbones or to lift the mid-face as part of facial rejuvenation.
Careful assessment will be needed with one of our advanced team, to help turn that face from an upward triangle to a more youthful downward triangle facial dimension. Your clinician may apply a topical anaesthetic to the injection site, or there may be a numbing agent already mixed into the filler itself. The injection process should be simple and will only last 20 minutes or so.
The cheeks or mid-third of the face is an ideal area to treat non-surgically and skilful treatment can lead to dramatic yet natural-looking results. After the injection, you’ll be able to see some of the results immediately. It will take a day or two for the filler to settle into its position on your face. Injectable treatments take some time to integrate into your tissues, and it’s normal for your dermal filler to take up to two weeks to fully settle into your face – at this stage, however, the results will be complete.
There is very little downtime after this procedure. During the first few days after an injection, you should avoid sleeping on your cheeks. Try to sleep facing up, flat on your back.
You may also want to avoid strenuous exercise until the filler has completely taken its shape, 48 hours after the injection procedure. Avoid touching your face and keep your face clean and dry as much as possible until the risk of infection has passed.
