Cheek Filler – Cheek Injections

Withdrawn cheeks can make us look tired and older beyond our years. At Whitsunday Cosmedics Skin Clinic, cheek filler is designed to combat the common signs of aging and transform the appearance of the cheeks. This is done with dermal filler injections, which is a non-surgical procedure that can restore volume to the cheeks.

How Cheek Filler Can Benefit You

This non-surgical procedure can achieve a more youthful facial contour for patients. In addition, this treatment can work well to diminish the appearance of jowls that can develop from a loss of skin elasticity and cheek volume as we get older.

Benefits

• Non-invasive procedure
• Minimal downtime
• Little discomfort
• Results last between 18 to 24 months
• More plump cheeks

Consultation

Before you receive check filler injections, it is necessary for all patients to attend a consultation with our Doctor. This will allow you to learn more about what you can expect from dermal fillers and how the procedure is performed. In addition, patients will be able to have their questions answered and any concerns addressed. A professional will be able to advise whether this is the right procedure for you.
It is common for treatment on tear troughs to be completed at the same time as the cheeks. This is because of the close proximity between the two areas on the face and the need to achieve natural looking results that complement each other. This can be discussed during the consultation and whether it is necessary for the patient.

The Procedure

Before you receive cheek filler injections, the area can be numbed with an anaesthetic cream. This will make sure the process is as comfortable and pain-free as possible for the patient. At Whitsunday Cosmedics Skin Clinic, every effort is made to make sure patients feel as relaxed as possible.
The dermal fillers will be injected into the skin on the cheeks with a fine needle. Once the substance is injected underneath the skin, the area will be lightly massaged to distribute the filler evenly and create plumpness. This procedure normally takes around 30 minutes.
