Cheek Fillers subtly contour the face and restore balance and harmony, accentuating high cheek bones. Facial ageing begins in our 20’s when skin firmness begins to decrease due to both internal (genetics and natural ageing) and external (sun exposure, smoking, stress, exercise, etc.) factors.

As we age, we lose collagen and bone support for the cheeks. The cheek fat pads lose volume and descend, which cause cheeks to flatten and nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth), to deepen. The volume loss is noticeable in the cheeks and midface which effects the overall look and balance of our face. In addition, our skin loses volume and elasticity, which causes the skin to sag, especially in the mid face. The area under our eyes (tear troughs) becomes hollower and sags partly due to the loss of support provided by the cheeks as we age.

Cheek Filler 01

What are Cheek Fillers?

Cheek Fillers are small injections of gel, typically made up of a sugar, a naturally occurring substance in the human body that helps hydrate and add volume to the skin and underlying soft tissue. When used in the cheek area, it will restore volume and fullness, as well as provide structure for the mid-face.

Cheek Filler is designed to enhance your natural face shape with an increase in volume surrounding your cheekbones. This extra definition in the cheek area can help restore the appearance of high cheekbones, as well as improve the appearance of tired looking eyes and sagging skin.

The exact placement of the filler is of vital importance in achieving a natural yet refreshed look. We avoid overfilling. All of our medical clinicians at Face To Face Medical have been trained and are skilled in assessing facial proportions and facial harmony and individualize each treatment to suit your specific facial features. There is a science behind facial proportions, and we incorporate this into our assessments.

What is the ideal cheek shape?

The ideal cheek shape has a soft gentle convex curve however this varies slightly in males and females. There are also subtle differences in people from various ethnic background. Every face has its own specific facial features. At Face To Face Medical, we individualize every treatment considering many factors when we precisely place cheek fillers to optimize your facial balance creating a fresh and natural looking result.

How we subconsciously perceive someone's age and attractiveness is a complex process of the interplay of light and shadow. This interplay can signify youth or age as well as beauty. Loss of light reflection associated with youth signals ageing even more so than the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.

Concave areas that develop or deepen as we age and lose facial volume create more shadows, and it is this shadowing that we subconsciously perceive as signs of ageing. Convex areas reflect light, making us look more vibrant and younger.

By restoring balance and definition with precisely placed cheek fillers, the medical team at Face To Face Medical can produce results that are subtle yet convey youth and overall facial harmony. You’ll look better and more refreshed, without ever looking overfilled.

What does cheek filler treatment involve?

A thorough assessment and consultation followed by a treatment plan is discussed with you. Each patient has individual anatomy, goals, and facial balance so we individualize every treatment. Included in the assessment is a careful observation of your facial shape, and your facial proportions. Photographic documentation is part of every initial assessment. The clinicians at Face To Face Medical are highly skilled and strive for the best and most natural result possible.

Dermal Fillers contain a gel premixed with local anaesthetic so pain or discomfort during cheek filler injections is usually minimal. A fine needle or micro-cannula (fine blunt tipped instrument) is used to inject the filler into carefully selected areas of the cheek, with the treatment usually lasting around 30 -60 minutes.

Results are seen immediately. Our treatments do not affect facial expression and we avoid overfilling the face. Our aim is to rejuvenate and enhance while maintaining a natural look.

Is there any downtime after the procedure?

Most patients look rejuvenated immediately after treatment and can return to work on the same day. You may experience slight redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, or bruising following treatment. However, the discomfort is temporary and generally disappears within a few days.

How long does treatment take?

The treatment takes 30-60 minutes. The treatment benefits can be seen immediately but continues to improve over the subsequent days.

How long will the results last?

Results of the treatment last from 6 months -2 years, depending on the individual and how much filler is used.

How much filler do I need?

This depends on several factors including the extent of the volume loss, the goal of the patient, and the facial proportions. Usually, 1-2 ml of filler is used however a more accurate assessment will be discussed at your initial appointment.

Does it hurt?

Dermal Fillers contain a local anaesthetic mixed in with the pre-packaged filler gel so pain or discomfort during Dermal Fillers injections is usually minimal.
