The mid-face is predominantly made up of our cheeks, and due to factors such as ageing or pregnancy, you may find that the area looks sunken or sallow. Similarly, if your nasolabial folds, laugh lines or dark circles appear more dominant, it is because the cheeks are less prominent.
The bone, tissue and skin in our mid-face changes over time, leading to deflation and sagging in the cheek; however, by treating the ‘apples’ of the cheeks, you can recreate the definition, volume and lift back into the mid-face. Typically injected with dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane or Hyaluronic Acid, you can expect cheek fillers to use a soft and naturally-occurring substance such as Hyaluronic Acid for a natural appearance.
Our experts will assess the varying size and volume of the cheeks to determine the ogee curve. This curve is outlined across the cheeks, and the bridge of the nose, to create the perfect proportions for the entire face. The actual ‘apple cheek’ filler trend presents a round and plump finish to the mid-face by enhancing the cheeks. As part of the Liquid Facelift, cheek fillers can be combined with dermal fillers and botox to reduce dark circles, laugh lines and sagging skin.
The procedure involves numbing cream being applied to the cheeks before the dermal filler is injected into the area. You can expect to see a younger and brighter YOU after treatment, immediately seeing the results. With the dermal filler approach, you can expect the lip fillers to take 1-2 weeks to settle into position before the area is stabilised. In the weeks following the treatment, be gentle when touching the face, especially when applying your skincare routine.
Restoring volume loss and typically lasting 6 months to one year, you can expect cheek fillers to reposition the facial proportions completely.
