As our skin ages, wrinkles and deep lines begin to form and facial volume is lost, most commonly in the cheek area. This leaves skin looking saggy and lacking definition.
Here at the Light Touch Clinic, we restore cheek definition by using Dermal Filler injections. This simple, minimally invasive treatment, counters the common signs of aging and restores the skin’s natural elasticity, leaving skin feeling firmer and highlighting previously lost facial features.
By using injections to target specific problem areas, our highly trainer practitioners can create a naturally youthful look by restoring volume in the cheeks, cheekbones and chin. This makes Cheek Filler’s a fantastic non-surgical alternative to cheekbone enhancement surgery.
Depending on your individual needs, we are able to target:
We use both Restylane® and Juvaderm® for all our cheek filler treatments, which are the two leading dermal filler’s available on the market. They both are made up of a naturally occurring substance found in the body called hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for lubricating joints and skin.
As cheek filler’s are a completely non-surgical treatment, the procedure lasts roughly thirty minutes with no recovery time required, meaning you would be able to leave the clinic as soon as the injections are finished*.
After treatment you may experience some minor swelling and tenderness which should subside after a forty-eight period*. Applying ice may help reduce swelling time and ease any discomfort.
As the fillers use a natural substance, the body is able to accept the treatment without complication*. It is naturally broken down over a six to twelve month period, meaning the results are not permanent.
The treatment also helps stimulate collagen production, which aids the natural generation of stronger, smoother and more youthful skin over time.
Depending on your current skin condition and wanted results, multiple treatments might be required.

At the Light Touch clinic we believe in replacing lost volume, not adding volume that wasn’t there in the first place. You will the leave the clinic looking refreshed and rejuvenated, not artificially puffed-up like some celebrities!
We use Restylane® and Juvaderm® – two of the leading dermal fillers on the market. Both are FDA-approved and temporary – this means your body should break them down over 6-12 months, so in the unlikely event you are not satisfied with the results they are not permanent. These dermal fillers are well tolerated by most people because they are made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in our body responsible for lubricating the skin and joints.
Your cheek filler treatment will only be administered by one of our practitioners using the latest minimally invasive techniques.
What does the treatment involve?
Small quantities of dermal filler are injected into the cheek areas where you have wrinkles, furrows or loss of volume. Our practitioners often use a micro-cannula to administer the filler. By using a cannula our patients benefit from less pain, less bruising, less swelling, less risk of complications and a smooth, natural-looking result.
What will my skin look like afterwards?
The effects of a cheek filler treatment are immediate but you may experience a small amount of swelling and/or bruising which may take a few days to subside.
Are cheek fillers safe?
As long as they are administered by a trained medical practitioner who is experienced in the anatomy of the face, cheek fillers should be safe. The hyaluronic acid gel is completely natural and over time is broken down and assimilated back into the body causing no harm to you.
What are the risks and complications?
All non-invasive procedures carry a small amount of risk which is why they are only administered after a face to face consultation with one of our practitioners during which a full assessment will be carried out and a full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.
Are dermal filler injections my only option?
Before you undergo any injectable treatment you will be invited for a consultation with one of our practitioners who will analyse your skin and help you decide which treatment option is most suitable.
At the Light Touch Clinic, our injectable treatments are only performed by medical practitioners. We have two practitioners who carry out all dermal filler treatments: Dr Natalie Blakely and Janine Scott. Before your treatment you will be invited to a consultation with one of our practitioners who will determine the best way to achieve your desired result.
