Cheek fillers are dermal fillers that are used to add volume to the cheeks by filling the hollows in one's face. Cheek fillers can help patients of all ages to add a bit of volume to their cheeks. The cheek fillers can restore the younger look, giving you a fuller and radiant appearance.
Cheek fillers can be used by both men and women who have lost volume in their cheeks due to age or weight loss. The treatments can also be helpful for patients who have had facial surgery that changed their cheekbones or eliminated fat from their faces.
The advantages of dermal fillers for the cheek include:
Cheek fillers are non-surgical procedures and do not require stitches or anesthesia. The cheek fillers are injected in multiple small injections into the hollows of your face by a trained professional.
The procedure takes less than 30 minutes, and you can return home after injecting the filler into your cheeks with no restrictions on activity or diet.
The results obtained from cheek fillers are temporary and last for up to 12 months. When you need further treatment, you need to visit us for another round of treatment.
There is no recovery period after dermal filler injections for the cheek, and you will have no visible signs of treatment on your face immediately after the procedure is done. It may take a few days for the swelling to subside completely after cheek fillers. There will be minimal redness for about a week after your injection. There is no need for any medication after dermal filler injections. You will only have to avoid certain activities, such as rubbing or touching your injection site, for two days after the treatment is completed. You will also need to avoid consuming alcoholic drinks after dermal filler injections, as they could adversely affect their performance in your body.
