Cheek Fillers

Facial volume loss mainly affects the mid-face area, namely the cheeks. Through the processes of ageing the natural fat pads beneath the skin lose tissue density. Combined with weakened skin that provides less support to the underlying structure, this area of the face can start to descend and look droopy, which can also sit heavy around the jawline. When cheek fillers are applied, they can replace the volume that has been lost. This can also work to lift any sagging skin and restore a calmer, less tired look to the face.

Cheek fillers can be administered just beneath the skin, to area around the cheekbones, to the furrows under the eyes, as well as the creases around the mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). Light Touch Clinic’s preferred method of application is to use a micro-cannula to deliver the filler to the cheek. Improving facial definition can be enhanced by the concentration of Hyaluronic acid that is contained within the fillers’ formulation. This substance helps to improve the skin’s hydration, which works with the volumising properties to create a smooth texture to the skin and a softer appearance to any wrinkles.

A topical numbing cream can be applied to the treatment area before the procedure takes place, in order to minimise any discomfort that administering the cannula may cause.

Light Touch Clinic uses Restylane and Juvederm dermal fillers when adding volume to this area of the face. One treatment session can provide the result the patient is looking for; achieving a defined cheek area that looks fuller and firmer, with less wrinkles and sagging skin. The impact of a fuller mid-face can lift the weight from around the mouth and jaw to give a rejuvenated look to the whole face. Cheeks fillers can also be applied in combination with other rejuvenating procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I suitable for this treatment?

This treatment can benefit those who are unhappy with the look that facial volume loss, facial wrinkles, flattened cheeks, sagging skin and creases around the nose and mouth has created. A thorough assessment of the face and the presenting conditions, can help the team at Light Touch Clinic to determine if this treatment is suitable for you.

Is this a safe treatment?

Restylane and Juvederm are reputable brands that are FDA approved and produce safe effective results. Cheek fillers are very safe when they are administered by trained and skilled professionals. Light Touch Clinic ensures all their practitioners are appropriately qualified and trained, updating their knowledge and skills regularly, in order to keep up-dated with all the latest technologies and techniques.

Will it hurt?

There may be some slight discomfort felt from having cheek fillers, as the cannula penetrates the skin. The cannula used is very fine and is a proven method of application that is designed to reduce the overall amount of discomfort that this type of procedure can produce. If the patient wishes, a numbing cream can be applied to the skin, prior to treatment.

What can I expect after treatment?

Cheek fillers act to replace the volume that has been lost in the mid-face area due to the internal processes of ageing. As well as fuller looking cheeks, this type of filler can be used to fill in the hollows around the eyes (tear troughs) and take the weight away from a heavy jawline. Cheek fillers can produce a temporary rejuvenated, youthful look to the face and are as the product is designed to dissolve and a top-up may be required after 9 or 12 months.

Are there any side effects or risks?

The treatment site may look red, swollen and bruised, immediately following the procedure. This will often subside within a few hours and any bruising can be covered using make-up as this may take a few days to disappear. More serious complications are rare and these will be explained to you during your pre-treatment consultation.
