Full cheeks are a desirable characteristic, as they are seen as a sign of youthfulness and good health. As we age our cheeks lose their fullness, but young people can also experience sunken cheeks as a consequence of significant weight loss. You may alternatively be unhappy about the appearance of your cheeks if they do not seem equal on both sides of your face, feeling that your face is unbalanced as a result.
Cheek Augmentation in London
However, you do not need to undergo surgery to achieve more desirable cheeks, as at our London clinics a range of injectable dermal fillers are available, which offer a quick, safe and effective procedure to enhance the beauty of your face.
Cheek Fillers for Successful Cheek Augmentation
Dermal Fillers are smooth gels containing hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the human body. As we grow older, the hyaluronic acid in skin disintegrates, leading to the development of lines on our skin and reduced plumpness within our tissues, which is why our cheeks start to hollow. Using a cheek filler, of which Juvederm Voluma is one example, the natural volume of our cheeks can be restored. That’s not the only advantage of using a cheek filler – they leave your skin feeling softer and better hydrated.
Enhancing your cheeks with this non-surgical treatment couldn’t be easier and offers natural results straight after the procedure. Whether you are looking for a more dramatic contour of your cheeks, or to naturally lift your cheeks, either can be achieved with the help of dermal fillers, and a non-surgical liquid facelift is also available. Whatever the desired outcome of your procedure, you can explain this to one of our highly skilled cosmetic doctors. This will enable your cheek treatment to be tailored accordingly, so that the fillers are injected into the appropriate area to give volume and lift to your cheeks as desired.
The procedure typically takes just 20 minutes to perform and as soon as it is complete you can continue as normal, whether that means returning to work or meeting friends. Usually results last between 6 and 18 months, though this depends upon the filler used in your procedure; your doctor will be able to advise you further on this. Once the results have worn off, you can simply arrange another appointment at our London skin clinics.
The cost of cosmetic treatment to your cheeks depends on the exact procedure you choose, which determines the amount of dermal filler required. This is sold in fixed dose syringes. When using Juvederm Voluma typically 1ml is required in each cheek, where both cheeks can be treated for £320 and upwards. This price does vary between treatments and fillers, so discuss the cost with your doctor.
Safety of Dermal Fillers
Despite the knowledge that you will achieve fuller cheeks, you want to be certain that the treatment you receive at a clinic in London is safe. When you opt for treatment at Dermadoc, this is always the case. Even though hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring, our clinic only uses approved fillers for cheek enhancement. Not all clinics are so selective and may use one of the fillers not approved by the FDA, which is a risk. Cosmetic fillers approved by the FDA have been rigorously researched and clinical trials conducted, so their safety is proven; that’s why we only use this type of cheek filler, as we place our clients’ safety first.
It’s also reassuring to know that if you receive the popular Juvederm filler, the gel comes complete with an anaesthetic, so you will feel little pain during the injection. However, if you opt for another type of cheek filler, an anaesthetic cream is available and this can be applied before your cheek enhancement procedure.
You don’t need to worry about adverse effects, as these very rarely occur when using a quality dermal filler. However, you may experience a little redness and swelling around the injected area, and occasionally some bruising. Your doctor will explain the possible side-effects to look out for and how to minimise the risk of problems through appropriate after care.
To fully appreciate how this treatment can enhance the appearance of your cheeks and the various options available, book your initial appointment today at one of our facilities in London to discuss your needs. This consultation is complimentary and will help you decide whether this or another treatment is right for you.
