How does cheek enhancement work?
As you get older, you may begin to notice some sagginess in the skin on your face. This is a common sign of ageing, but we can use dermal fillers to make your cheeks look a little fuller and reduce unsightly jowls and wrinkles. Alternatively, younger patients may simply desire more prominent/defined cheekbones.
What does the cheek enhancement procedure entail?
Your medical practitioner will begin by applying topical anaesthetic to your face. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, the doctor will administer several small injections, using gel to fill out your cheeks and replenish their youthful appearance.
What will this do?
If your cheeks have become jowly or started to sag, the facial fillers will help to reverse this classic sign of ageing, giving your cheeks added lift and a vibrant fullness. This effect will last for up to 9 months, after which you may wish to return for a second treatment.
Are there any side effects?
You may notice a mild swelling/soreness straight after the procedure. This is a perfectly normal reaction to the injection and it will subside in due course.
