Cheek filler is becoming just as popular as lip filler treatments as more people are wanting to improve their facial structure. Cheek filler is a great way to restore the face, making someone feel youthful once again. Before going ahead with any dermal filler treatments it is important to know a bit about it, so here we have created cheek filler FAQs for you.
What is Cheek Filler?
Dermal filler is the type of filler used for cheek filler treatments, this type of filler is an FDA-approved injectable. Dermal filler is usually used to help soften any lines and wrinkles, as well as to help make someone’s face more symmetrical or to help add volume. If you have any filler injected into the lower edge of the eye socket, nasolabial fold and the line from the corner of your mouth to your ear canal then this is would be considered.
Am I the Right Candidate for Cheek Fillers?
If you feel that you are concerned about any of the following, then you are most likely to be the right candidate for cheek fillers:
Lost volume in cheeks: You might find that as you age, over time your cheeks can start to look deflated. Over time the face starts to lose its healthy and youthful contours. Therefore having cheek filler can help to restore the face, by adding some volume back into the cheeks.
Pronounced Nasolabial Fold: The nasolabial folds are lines that stretch from your nose to your mouth. As we age the nasolabial folds become more pronounced, this is due to the loss of volume and elasticity in the face. The nasolabial folds have become one of the biggest indicators of signs of ageing.
Facial enhancement: A lot of younger people tend to have cheek filler to help enhance and contour their facial features. If you feel that you require more structure and plumpness or feel that your face needs a lift then this would be a reason to consider going ahead with cheek filler.
Is the Procedure and Recovery Time Quick?
The actual procedure time should only take around 20-30 minutes. However, before going ahead with the procedure you should have an initial consultation with your practitioner to discuss your needs and wants. After your lip filler treatment, you should be able to return to your normal activities immediately. Although it is normal to experience some swelling and bruising for up to a week after having the treatment, this should go down within the first couple of days.
How Long does Cheek Filler Last?
It will not last forever. However, it can last anywhere from 6 months right up to 2 years. The dermal filler over the months will slowly dissolve, meaning that the results will become more and more unnoticeable.
