How do we technically locate the ideal apex (light reflection) on your cheeks?
We draw a line from corner of the eye to the corner of the mouth.We also draw a line from edge of the nostril to the middle of the ear - Tragus. The lines intersecting will indicate the location of the apex of the cheek. The loss of definition of Ogee curve is often due to loss of subcutaneous tissue secondary to any significant weight loss or aging.
How long will the treatment last?
Your treatment time will depend on how many areas are being treated and you will see instant results.
The procedure is minimally invasive which takes about 30-45 mins. There will be minimal bruising of about 2-3 mm around the insertion points on each side of the cheeks. We typically use a Microcannula.
Will the treatment hurt?
A cannula will be used, so there is only one entry point per area and the treatment contains a local anaesthetic, all of which helps to make it more comfortable. Most patients find the discomfort to be very mild and short lived.
What is the ogee curve?
Our Aesthetic doctors understand the importance of the Ogee curve just as an artist would. Just as an artist studies his subject, our doctors will study the patient's face to understand the best way to perform any facial augmentation procedure.
But, what is the ogee curve?
It is an "S"-shaped curve made out of two opposing arcs. It is commonly found in drawings and architectural designs. You may ask what does it have anything to do with beauty? The answer is: it has everything to do with beauty.
If you look closely on any young women's facial features, particularly on the side view, the high cheek bone sets the top half the "S" shape and the lower face forms the bottom half of the "S" shape of this curvature.
The Ogee curve on a person's face is associated with youthfulness and beauty. If you open any pages of fashion magazines, check out the side views of models and you will notice the Ogee curves, whether these be natural or cosmetically enhanced. The art is not to over do it and it is important to compliment the Ogee Curves to the natural features of an individual.
The ogee curve is the central facial triangle or the double soft-S curves that are seen on the youthful face from an oblique angle. There is fullness in the lateral brow that softly curves where the upper and lower eyelids meet, then softly curves outward on the upper cheek to again curve inward just above the mouth. As we age the natural curve collapses as the face loses the volume found in youth.
Placing an ogee curve in people’s faces make older people look younger and younger faces more beautiful.
How long will the results last?
The fullness will develop over time and achieving its maximal effect by the end of the two weeks. The longevity of the filler generally lasts up to 12 to 18 months, depending on the metabolism of an individual. Some people will break down the fillers more quickly than the others.
