Part of the aging process involves a loss of bone in the mid face known as bone resorption. In addition, the fat underlying our skin tends to gravitate down which can cause our cheek areas to lose volume and look a little loose and sagging or sunken.
Dermal fillers are used to enhance the cheek area. Injection is administered into the cheek area which acts to create subtle volume in the mid face and in addition can soften the appearance of other changes in our lower faces such as nasolabial folds or nose to mouth lines.
Following cheek enhancement my patients feel they look rejuvenated and refreshed with a more youthful glowing appearance.
I use only FDA Approved reversible and biodegradable hyaluronic acid fillers to allow for maximum safety and natural results.
Hyaluronic acid is synthesised in the dermal layer of the skin. Dermal fillers consist of a synthetic hyaluronic acid gel. When injected into different layers of the face it can be used to reduce the appearance of sagging or loosening of the skin, folds, lines, wrinkles and to reshape areas of the face that have lost volume due to ageing. It has the added benefit of being very hydrating as it attracts water molecules. This allows for a plumping and firming affect and gives a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Just like your own bodies hyaluronic acid; hyaluronic acid fillers degrade slowly over time and are naturally broken down by enzymes in the dermis layer of your skin.
Dermal filler injections are administered by using a needle or a cannula technique. Depending on the area treated you may need to have topical local anaesthetic cream applied prior to treatment to minimise discomfort. Dermal fillers contain local anaesthetic within them which also helps minimise discomfort during the procedure.
Results are visible immediately and last between three to eighteen months depending on the filler used.
I had a lot of bruising following all my previous aesthetic treatments. I do bruise very easily. Following treatment with you I had absolutely zero bruising.’“
