Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO NON SURGICAL CHEEK FILLERS WORK?
Dermal fillers can be used for cheek enhancement or a cheek lift. A cheek enhancement involves cheek injections to improve facial features and can be performed in relatively young women. While a cheek lift aims to restore lost volume in older patients.
Both cheek lift and cheek filler procedures can be associated with other cosmetic treatments to achieve greater results. A cheek filler is often combined with other facial contouring treatments. At the same time, a cheek lift procedure can also include midface thread lift, cheek injections, surgical facelifts, or surgical cheek implants.
HOW LONG DO CHEEK FILLERS LAST?
Your results will depend on the quality of filler used, how fast your metabolism works and whether you are a smoker. As the filler composition is based on a naturally occurring substance in our cells, your body will naturally metabolise the filler over time.
As a reference, dermal fillers can last up to 2-years. However, for most patients their cheek filler lasts anywhere from 12-18 months.
DO CHEEK FILLERS HURT?
Cheek enhancement is a non-invasive treatment that can be performed under topical anaesthetic creams to minimise discomfort during the procedure. In addition, all dermal fillers used at StudioMD contain anaesthetic within the product itself which allows for a relatively painless experience.
WHAT IS THE DOWN TIME WITH CHEEK ENHANCEMENT?
You can expect very minimal swelling and bruising with cheek dermal fillers. But any side effects should disappear within two weeks. After that, most patients feel comfortable returning to everyday life without any evidence of a procedure, besides the desired aesthetic outcome.
WHAT TREATMENTS ARE COMBINED WITH CHEEKBONE FILLER?
Possible combinations really depend on what you wish to achieve with the treatment(s). Younger patients often combine cheekbone fillers with lip or jawline fillers. On the other hand, if your goal is a more oval face, the cheekbone filler should be paired with face slimming injections.
