About Cheek fillers and what to expect...

Cheek fillers are a type of cosmetic procedure that involves the injection of dermal fillers into the cheeks in order to plump them up and enhance their appearance.

As you age, the volume of facial tissue is lost, causing several changes to your facial structure. Often the area may have an asymmetrical appearance as a result of lost volume.

The loss of volume occurs when facial fat and collagen is lost which is part of the natural ageing process.

Areas in the face lose structural support and the proportion of face fat in the cheeks gradually decreases.

Cheek filler treatment is one of the recognised treatment options for this aging issue.

The result you can expect to achieve following cheek filler treatment is a more youthful appearance with defined cheekbones that are aligned with your natural cheekbone structure.

You can expect to regain a youthful and sculpted cheeks curve making them fuller and lifted through dermal filler injections. You will also notice secondary improvements in nasolabial folds, smile lines and under eye area.

We can help to restore your cheek volume or contour to the lateral cheekbone, resulting in a beautiful rejuvenation of your entire mid-face.

Cheek augmentation is an extremely popular method of facial enhancement, as well as an anti-ageing fail-safe. Dermal filler is injected into the soft tissue of the face to provide more volume, dimension and youthful lift.

During the procedure, a numbing agent will be applied to your face to reduce any discomfort you may feel from the injections.

A fine needle or Cannula will then be used to inject small amounts of filler into the mid-face area.

Dr Chike will also massage the area afterwards to ensure that the product is spread evenly throughout your cheeks.

There is minimal recovery time. You will see the results immediately.

The non surgical procedure is done in-clinic, and the treatment usually takes about 30 minutes.

The effects of cheek fillers can last up to 12 months, but this varies depending on the type of product used and your own individual metabolism.

After your initial treatment session, you may need follow-up cheek fillers treatments in order to maintain the desired results.

Overall, cheek fillers provide a great way to instantly rejuvenate your cheek area and lower face while avoiding the risks associated with surgery.
