Non-Surgical Cheek Augmentation With Dermal Fillers
One unexpected side effect of the aging process is the loss of facial volume in the cheeks and mid-face region. As we age, gravity pulls the fat from our cheeks and mid-face down into our lower face, producing sagging jowls and results in flattening the cheeks and mid-face. This can leave you looking expressionless, as well as tired and aged. This effect may also happen as a consequence of rapid, dramatic weight fluctuations or certain medical conditions.
Cheek filler treatments such as Juvederm Voluma or Restylane may be just what you need to revive a sunken mid-face region and fill out hollow or flattened cheekbones, restoring a more firm and contoured appearance to the face. During your free initial consultation, Dr. Bachilo will recommend the best filler treatment to enhance your mid-face region according to your skin type, as well as your aesthetic goals.
Before the procedure, Dr. Bachilo will apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment area to prepare the skin so that you won’t feel any discomfort during the treatments. Next, Dr. Bachilo will help you determine the ideal combination of injections for you based on your skin type, condition, and aesthetic goals. In most cases. Dr. Bachilo will use a strategic combination of various dermal fillers to add volume, firmness, and definition to the mid-face region to sculpt natural-looking cheekbones and a smoother, more contoured facial appearance.
Although patients typically do not describe the procedure as painful, minor symptoms such as temporary swelling, redness, and soreness may persist at the treatment site for several hours immediately following the treatment. Therefore, we recommend applying ice packs to the area and taking Tylenol to alleviate any residual discomfort after the topical anesthesia wears off. In addition, it is important that you avoid rubbing the skin or wearing makeup for several days and avoid excessive exposure to sunlight and air pollution.
You may be a good candidate for cheek filler injections if you are a healthy adult and have lost significant volume in your mid-face region and the area around your cheeks as a result of the aging process or due to substantial weight loss.
Cheek fillers can add volume, fullness, and definition to the mid-face region, rejuvenating the entire face. Fillers such as Voluma by Juvederm may be used to sculpt natural-looking cheekbones, adding depth and expression to the face, while also firming and smoothing the skin thanks to adding volume. Cheek fillers also stimulate natural collagen production, improving the tone and texture of the skin and making the skin feel plumper and firmer.
Overall, cheek fillers are used to achieve the following improvements in facial contour:
- Enhance the cheekbones to make them look more pronounced.
- Smooth out lines around the nose and mouth, such as parenthesis lines.
- Restore volume and definition to cheeks that have become flat or sunken.
- Restore symmetry to the cheeks.
Depending on which type of dermal filler is used, the results of your cheek filler treatment may last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years before you’ll need a follow-up treatment.
