Cheek filler treatments are a popular procedure here at My Pure Aesthetics. Cheek fillers can create more definition and also facial volume which is the main culprit for facial ageing.
When we get older, the skin loses its elasticity and volume in areas such as the cheeks and eyes. The dreaded idea of a sunken face due to age, doesn’t have to be your reality. Assisting these areas with a little filler that is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance we already have naturally in our bodies, can be the best way to achieve a more youthful look by the increase in facial volume.
Cheek Filler treatment process:
- Consultation **
- Cleanse the area
- Apply numbing cream that will be left on the area for 15-20 minutes to ensure the area is numb enough to minimise discomfort
- Start injecting
- Clean area
- Area is lightly massaged by the practitioner
- Apply soothing lotion to the skin
**Please note, we are able to arrange consultations and administer treatments on the same day, if this is something you would like to do please notify a member of our staff when booking.**
Patients may experience slight bruising, swelling or redness. The treatment is carried out under topical anaesthetic, which means that patients are awake and can therefore see what is being done. The procedure takes around 20 minutes once injecting commences and there is no down-time.
Every patient is different, but results usually last between 6-18 months. The body naturally absorbs the filler, and the rate of this depends on the patient’s age, metabolism, the amount of exercise they do and lifestyle choices such as smoking.
All fillers are reversible from when the treatment is administered ensuring, if in the unlikely event you didn’t like the achieved results we can reverse them in seconds by using a filler dissolver.
Although cheek fillers are used to add facial volume, the idea that the face will appear fat after treatment is quite the opposite. Filler in the cheeks is used to create shape and fill in where volume has been lost.
Cheek filler treatments to improve facial volume at My Pure Aesthetics starts from £200 but depends on how much product is required. The cheeks are an area that requires more filler in terms of quantity, as it’s a very large area that is being covered. Equally, we do not want to overdo the cheeks by putting too much filler in, so a consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals is highly necessary, and also two sessions may be better to administer the filler treatments.
