FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE CHEEK FILLERS?
As we age, our cheek fat pads start to lose volume, leaving the skin less supported structurally in the midface. This also affects nearby areas of the face including the skin around our eyes and the lines around our mouths. Dermal cheek fillers are a nonsurgical procedure designed to add volume and bring more balanced definition to the face.
WHO IS SUITABLE FOR CHEEK FILLERS?
Cheek enhancement is suitable for any women and men who want more defined cheeks. Techniques vary according to the patient's age and goal. For more mature patients we recommend the Cheek Augmentation, as it rejuvenates the face, filling volume that has been lost naturally over time. For patients that have lost substantial weight, Cheek Fillers combined with non-surgical implants can bring back fullness and balance. Finally, for relatively younger patients, precise Cheek Fillers can provide better-defined cheekbones and harmonize facial features.
HOW IS THE POST-TREATMENT CARE OF A CHEEK AUGMENTATION?
Following your cheek augmentation with dermal fillers, you can expect minor swelling, redness and even bruising around the treatment site. These are common side effects and should disappear within 2-3 days. To help achieve better results, avoid wearing makeup for 24 hours after the procedure or engaging in any intense physical activity for 48 hours.
HOW LONG DO CHEEK FILLERS LAST?
It is likely that you will require a touch-up procedure around 12 months after your first cheek enhancement. It usually involves half the gel volume of your first procedure. However, the precise timeline of a dermal filler procedure will depend on the product used, the site of treatment, and the patient's response to it.
ARE CHEEK FILLERS PAINFUL?
Since all injections have some level of discomfort, at StudioMD we offer the choice of numbing creams and local anaesthetics to all patients. Anaesthetics act as nerve blockers and stop the sensation from the injections being transmitted to the pain sensors in the brain. After it, you shouldn’t feel any discomfort during your cheek enhancement.
