What is Cheek Augmentation?
How does it work?
With cheek augmentation we are placing the filler in the supra-periosteal plane ( just above the the actual bone of the cheek) and just beneath the skin. We use filler in layers to build on your existing cheekbone.
this does two things:
* It creates a beautiful aesthetic contour and high arched cheekbone. Giving your face more definition and structure.It pulls up draping facial tissue.
* Cheekbone filler is used as part of our filler facelift treatment. It is a fantastic product for lifting. Remember once injected the hyaluronic acid filler absorbs water and expands. As it expands it pulls up and tightens back facial tissue.
We call the cheekbone augmentation a 2 in 1 treatment as you get a beautiful contour and facial lifting effect.
Does it hurt?
How long does it last?
Once injected, high density hyaluronic acid can last up to 18 months. Which each repetitive treatment results will last longer. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body, hence your body will gradually metabolise and break down the filler. Hot climates, sunbeds & fast metabolisms speed up the breakdown of filler. Filler lasts longer in areas with a poorer blood supply. Cheekbone, noses & undereye filler tender to last longer than lips for example. This is because the lips are very vascular and have a strong blood supply, therefore will increase the metabolism in that area. Also we are constantly moving are lips to talk, eat etc this also speeds up the breakdown.
How many MLs will I need?
It depends. On average most of our clients have 4-6 Ml. 2-3ML on their first session and then another 2-3ML 6-8 weeks later. This ensures natural looking results and longer lasting results. 1Ml for cheekbone (unless you are just topping up) for a first-timer will have a very subtle effect. To create high arched, structured cheekbones, 2MLs is required initially. 1 on each side.
Won’t adding filler to my cheeks make me look chubby?
Absolutely not. When injected and sculpted properly it does the opposite. It creates structure and sharp contours. Your face will have more definition and appear slimmer.
What are the side effects?
If your unlucky you may have some temporary bruising. At your consultation we will go through the full side effect profile. However using a safe filler with cannula technique dramatically reduces the risk of bruising and other side effects.
