What are cheek fillers and what are the benefits of getting them done?

Cheek fillers are a non-surgical treatment used for contouring the cheeks. Optimising the cheeks with dermal fillers helps to create definition and lift in the mid-face giving an overall rejuvenated appearance.

We use a hyaluronic acid filler for cheek contouring. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and wears off over time. We can use it in a variety of ways across the face to achieve the desired look.

How much does cheek filler cost and how long does it last?

Cheek Fillers are $479 per ml. Often the cheeks will require multiple ml’s to get the desired result. This is why it is beneficial to have a complimentary consultation and discuss a treatment plan that you are happy with.

Under manufacturers guidelines and past experience, we generally see Cheek Fillers last between 15 and 24 months. This varies between individuals depending on their metabolism and lifestyle factors. Due to the type of dermal filler used in the cheek we are able to achieve better longevity than that seen in the lips. We recommend attending another consult after 12-18 months to discuss re-treatment to maintain desired results.

Who is a good candidate for cheek filler and why is it needed?

Cheek Fillers are recommended to both male and female, younger and more mature positive agers. For the younger client it may be for facial contouring and beautification.  For the mature client it may be a case of restoring lost volume for anti-ageing.

As we age, bone reabsorption occurs, fat pads descend and we lose all structural support in the mid face. We also lose collagen and elastin in the skin. This results in the atrophy of the cheeks and an inversion of the triangle of youth. This can all be improved with the use of dermal fillers in the cheek area.

What to expect during the procedure and aftercare instructions?

Before we begin, we take your full medical history, discuss your concerns and complete a thorough assessment of your face. We will then discuss your treatment options, costing and answer any questions you may have. We will take photographs for our records and also for you to look back on and compare results after the treatment. We will then discuss possible side effects and risks and complete a consent form with you.

After thoroughly cleansing the face we will mark up the injections points and prepare your filler. Our registered cosmetic nurse will then inject the area using a needle and/or cannula depending on the desired outcome. The placement of the injections will vary depending on your facial shape and the look you are trying to achieve. The treatment only takes around 10 minutes depending on how many mls you require. We will then discuss aftercare and answer any further questions.

The most important aftercare for Cheek Fillers includes; remaining upright for 4 hours and not applying any pressure to the treatment area. Ensure that you avoid touching or rubbing the treated area for 4 hours. You should also avoid microdermabrasion, laser or chemical peels for 2 weeks. It is best to avoid excessive heat or cold, strenuous exercise or alcohol as these activities for 24-48 hours as these can increase your risk of bruising.
