A cheek filler treatment is a non-surgical procedure that plumps up the cheeks and fills in wrinkles and lines. A cosmetic enhancement can be done in just one visit to the best Medical Spa in Portland, Metropolitan area, with results that last from six months to two years.
Cheek filler treatment can correct the following issues:
- Uneven or sunken cheek appearance: The cheeks can lose volume and contour as a result of the aging process. Filler can be used to correct this appearance for a younger and rejuvenated appearance.
- Lip augmentation: A lip augmentation with injectable fillers can enhance the look of the lips while also adding volume to the face.
- Gummy smile: If you have a gummy smile, your upper lip may project too far past your upper teeth. Filler can help correct this appearance.
A local anesthetic is applied to numb the area prior to injection during your cheek filling appointment at the best Medical Spa in Portland, Metropolitan area. While there may be some discomfort during the injection, patients usually report very little pain. Then, the injection site will be marked with a marker. Next, a dental professional will administer the filler to the injection site. Treatment typically takes around 30 minutes to complete.
The recovery time for a cheek filler treatment depends on the patient and which filler is used. Most patients experience swelling and bruising, but these symptoms usually resolve within the first few days. Bruising typically fades sooner than swelling.
The longevity of cheek filler treatment varies from one individual patient to another, depending on a number of factors. With proper skin care, maintenance, and overall oral health, you can expect the results of your cheek filler treatment to last anywhere from 9 months to 2 years.
After receiving cheek fillers, it is essential for patients to carefully follow aftercare instructions to reduce the risk of side effects. This includes avoiding certain foods as well as activities that may cause trauma to the face.
Common side effects include bruising, tenderness, swelling, and redness. These side effects usually resolve within a few days. Patients can also treat side effects by applying a cold compress to the face. An over-the-counter pain reliever can also be taken to reduce discomfort.
