Cheek Filler

INTRODUCTION

CHEEK FILLER

As we age we lose volume in our cheeks. This not only causes your cheeks to deflate inwards, but also results in deepening of the tear through, nasolabial folds and marionette lines, which can lead to a constantly tired or unhappy appearance. At The Lime Tree Clinic, we offer a cheek filler treatment to replace the loss of volume to restore youthfulness and improve facial proportions.

What are Cheek Fillers made of?

Cheek fillers are injectable aesthetic gels, commonly called dermal fillers. It is naturally occurring in the skin, and as such these treatments easily supplement your soft tissues.


How do Cheek Fillers work?

When injected into the skin, the cheek fillers act as a volumising substance to instantly lift the beauty points for three-dimensional cheek contouring and reflation of the cheek, correcting volume loss and addressing lines and wrinkles. Besides adding volume, the cheek filler also act as a hydrating agent by drawing water into the skin and improves elasticity and firmness of the cheek.

Are Cheek Fillers safe?

Cheek fillers are safe because their constituents are naturally found in our body, and there is little risk of an allergic reaction. The risks of cheek filler injections are typically minimised in the hands of a good cosmetic injector with proper training, as well as good understanding of facial anatomy and the cheek filler products. The Lime Tree Clinic performs all procedures in a strict aseptic manner. Our cosmetic injectors will work closely with you to evaluate your areas of concern as well as review your medical history, allergies and pregnancy status to optimise your treatment.

What is the procedure for Cheek Filler treatment?

Cheek filler is a non-invasive and relaxing procedure that usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes. The procedure starts with a detailed assessment of your mid-face area, marking the strategic points for filler injection accordingly to your desired results. The target injection sites will be cleansed, followed by the application of numbing cream to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.

A very fine needle or slim cannula is used to deliver the filler. Usually, a few injections points are made over a specific area of your cheek to create a smooth transition between the treated areas. This is incredibly important to avoid an overdone and unnatural look. The process of injecting, massaging, and evaluating the result is continually performed until the desired results are achieved.


Cheek Fillers after care

Immediately after the injection, there may be mild redness, swelling, bruising, and itching. These side effects are temporary and settle after one to two days. Bruising takes one week to settle. Make up can be used the following day. You will be able to resume your daily activities.

When I can see the treatment results and how long will it last for?

Cheek fillers produce instant results and typically last somewhere between 12 and 24 months. We guarantee that our treatments will achieve the expected results. We provide a complimentary follow up appointment at two weeks to review your results and provide an updated skin assessment.
