We use dermal fillers to improve the shape of your upper face.
What is Cheek Enhancement?
Another very popular treatment with our clients! Maybe you've lost some volume due to ageing or maybe you'd just prefer the look of higher, more defined cheekbones? Look no further! You will usually see a nice lift in the lower face after this procedure too!
How much will I need?
We recommend at least 1ml, You will need a minimum of 0.5mls per cheek depending on the structure of your face for best results. We can also build the volume of the cheeks with more filler over a few sessions if desired.
How long does it take?
On arrival we will carry out a thorough consultation, this is to ensure that you are fit for treatment. You will be asked questions about your medical history (this is completely confidential) and we will discuss exactly what you would like to achieve. The treatment will take approximately 30 minutes and once completed we will deliver any relevant aftercare.
When will I see the results?
You will see results immediately as the injected product plumps up the tissues, However we do allow 14 days for the final results to give the filler time to settle.
Will there be any bruising/swelling?
Yes there may be slight bruising and swelling. Swelling can last a few days, but we recommend to allow up-to 14 days for the initial bruising/swelling to subside before assessing the final results of your treatment.
How long will it last?
Everyone is different so results vary between clients. Lifelstyle, metabolism, skin type and other factors like the number of previous filler treatments all have an effect on treatment longevity. As a very rough guide we would say 6 to 9 months for Cheek Enhancement unless you're new to this procedure - First time clients can see a faster breakdown time until the body gets used to the filler being present. Longevity then improves each time you have treatment.
Does it hurt?
We use mostly cannula when performing dermal fillers in the cheeks this does not hurt because the cannula is blunt, however we do use a needle to create a pathway and this can be a little uncomfortable. We do use a topical numbing cream before treatment and the fillers also contain lidocaine.
