Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation/Enhancement with the use of Dermal Fillers

Cheek Fillers are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure where dermal fillers are injected directly into the cheek area, to help enhance and/or define the cheek bone area. They provide an instant lift and improve facial features.  As we age, we lose volume around the face, which can cause cheeks to become sunken, hollow, sagging which show signs of ageing. At Skintech Medical Melbourne we aim to achieve and provide clients with a balanced facial structure and face shape in order to create an aesthetically pleasing profile with a quick, safe and non-invasive cosmetic procedure, without the need of surgery.

Dermal fillers can be used to change the contours of your cheeks by adding volume under the skin which can subtly make the cheeks look more defined and contoured, which help to improve the appearance of sunken, hollow or sagging cheeks that show early stages of ageing. High cheek bones are often seen as a sign of beauty, so dermal fillers can be used to enhance the client’s cheeks, whilst contouring.  As cheek dermal fillers only last for 9-18 months, it is the perfect option for those opting to reshape the face without any surgery or permanent changes. After the filler is naturally absorbed, the clients face shape/structure will return back to its original shape.

During a thorough consultation, our nurse/doctor will plan a treatment according to your expectations and what will best suit your features and facial structure. The aim is to achieve balance and symmetry, whilst still ensuring the client does not look “over done” and keeping their natural beauty. The aim is to enhance the client’s features. All our nurses and doctors are experienced and qualified therefore will ensure you will be provided with a treatment that will satisfy your expectations and a cosmetic treatment that you can trust.

Cheek fillers are suitable for clients who have noticed that their cheeks have become sunken and hollowed with age, or after weight fluctuations. Cheek fillers are also recommended for those who would like to correct asymmetries, or reshape and contour their facial shape and define their cheek bone area. Cheek fillers add volume to the face recreating a youthful, fresher, and more balanced and structured appearance. This treatment is recommended for those who are seeking to enhance the appearance of their cheeks without any surgical or permanent treatments. Some clients also choose temporary Cheek Fillers in order to decide if they would like to undergo something more permanent in the future. Cheek Fillers are safe, quick and non-invasive treatment and result are always reversible if a client, in the rare occasion, wishes to go back to their facial structure prior to treatment.

Careful planning and analysing is performed prior to the treatment in order to achieve the desired and suitable requirements of each individual client. The aim is to shape and create a profile to suit each patient. No two patients are the same, so a thorough assessment is performed prior to the treatment. You will be able to discuss your concerns and what you would like to achieve from this treatment with your injector thoroughly prior to your treatment.

After your consultation with your nurse/doctor, numbing cream will be applied to the area prior to treatment in order to provide you with a comfortable painless treatment. The Dermal Fillers are injected directly into the cheek area, according to each individual client’s requirements. The injector will determine the amount and where to apply the dermal filler in order to contour and shape the face accordingly. After the filler has been injected, your nurse/doctor will then sculpt the filler and mould it into place, creating you with your ideal facial structure and cheek bones. The consultation and treatment will last no more than 45 minutes to an hour, and you can return to your normal day to day activities straight away, post treatment. You can apply ice directly to the treated area post treatment, in order to reduce and minimise any swelling.

Some clients may experience a little bit of discomfort but generally there is little pain as topical anaesthetic is applied prior to the treatment for a minimal to no pain treatment, and all our nurses/doctors who are fully qualified and experienced will endeavour to provide you with a comfortable and relaxed treatment. Anaesthetic is also present within the filler, to ensure that you are provided with a minimal to no pain treatment. Most clients say that a little discomfort is experienced but the treatment is usually comfortable and bearable.

Post treatment you may experience slight swelling to the area injected, redness and tenderness which can last for a few hours to a couple of days. However, bruising can be covered with makeup and clients can return to their normal day to day activity post treatment. Ice can be applied to the treated area in order to reduce swelling and bruising.

Cheek fillers are a safe, non-invasive treatment with a chance of little to no complications. Clients will mainly experience minor swelling or bruising post treatment, but this generally lasts for a few hours to days. Results are also reversible if in the instance the client prefers to go back to their original facial structure. As opposed to more permanent treatments where complications can arise and results are harder to reverse. You can discuss any concerns you may have with our experienced and professional Melbourne practitioner, who is here to ensure you are provided with a safe, comfortable cosmetic treatment and to ensure you are confident and comfortable throughout your consultation and treatment.

The results can vary from 9-18 months depending on the client’s metabolism and how quickly it will naturally absorb the filler, and which product was used. Once the filler is completely absorbed, the cheek bone and facial structure will return back to its pre-treatment appearance.How long results will last also depends on a number of factors including age, the area treated, quantity of dermal filler injected, quality of skin and lifestyle. Follow up sessions are recommended to maintain results.

Cheek Fillers are a safe, non-invasive, quick treatment with little to no downtime that still provides you with the optimal results you desire. While the results are temporary, the results are instant and there are far less to no complications as opposed to opting for surgery, meaning you can return to your normal routine straight after the treatment. On the are occasion, that clients would like to return to the original facial shape prior to treatment, the chin filler results can easily be reversed in a quick, easy and safe treatment with our Skintech Melbourne practitioners.

Results can be seen immediately after your treatment. However, you must keep in mind that due to swelling post-treatment, you will see the final results within 2-3 weeks post treatment once the swelling has been reduced. It is recommended you book in for a follow up consultation after those two weeks in order to assess the results meet your satisfactory level and to discuss any further concerns you may have post treatment.

Every client is different and depending on the amount of cheek filler used, results can last up to 9-12 months. It is also recommended for clients to come in for a maintenance treatment once every six months in order to maintain the shape initially achieved post treatment.

As it is a non-invasive and safe treatment, patients are able to return back to most of their normal day to day activities after their treatment at Skintech Medical Melbourne.
