Injectable fillers are a popular treatment for restoring lost volume in the cheeks. The ageing process causes the underlying tissues that keep skin firm and youthful to breakdown. This could be down to a number of factors, such as sun exposure, diet, genetic factors, and years of facial muscle movement. Fillers replenish lost hyaluronic acid which plays a crucial part in adding volume to the skin.

How It Works

Facial changes and wrinkles appear as the network of collagen, hyaluronic acid and fat molecules breaks down. By replacing the hyaluronic acid and collagen you can add volume and gently lift the cheeks. The primary function of hyaluronic acid is to bind and absorb water molecules, which creates volume in the face by lifting skin from beneath.

The Procedure

Prior to any treatment the doctor will see you for a skin evaluation. This is a chance for you to discuss what you would like to achieve from the treatment and also answer any concerns you may have. Once both yourself and the doctor are satisfied that this is the best course of treatment for you, you can go ahead with the treatment.

A numbing, local anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin 20-25 minutes before the treatment. The dermal filler itself also contains lidocaine (an anaesthetic) making the treatment pain free. The filler is then expertly administered to the cheek. This treatment relies on a high level of ability for results to be achieved. It is important that whoever carries out your treatment is familiar with the technique required.
