Cheek Fillers Nottingham And East Midlands
High and contoured cheekbones are perceived as a sign of beauty and youth. Using cheek fillers, we can sculpt the cheeks to create a defined and contoured mid-face. This treatment will create the appearance of a more prominent bone structure, slim the face and balance other features, resulting in a more symmetrical face. We can create higher cheekbones for a more youthful look, while any tear troughs under the eyes are disguised by lifting the mid-face.
During the ageing process, we lose volume from various areas on our face as bone and muscle mass decreases. This can be particularly prominent in the mid-face, resulting in a less prominent bone structure in this area. Cheek augmentation with dermal filler will restore the volume lost with ageing to create a more youthful appearance.
The results of opting for cheek fillers with us, here in Nottingham and the East Midlands, can be tailored depending on your goals, whether that be a more dramatic result or a subtle, natural enhancement.
How much product is needed?
As a general rule, we would recommend 1ml of dermal filler each side of the cheekbone for a more natural result and 2ml each side for a more dramatic result. However, this depends entirely on the individual client’s natural anatomy. A client who naturally has more defined cheekbones will need less product, while someone with less definition may need more.
What products are used?
At Second Look Aesthetics, we use Revolax Sub Q for our cheek fillers in Nottingham and East Midlands.
How long does the cheek fillers in Nottingham treatment take?
The Cheek Fillers treatment takes around 20 minutes to complete. This includes a consultation so that we can gain a better understanding of the results you are hoping to achieve. Following this, we conduct an in-depth facial assessment to determine your suitability and recommend the appropriate amount of product depending on your goals, numb the area and administer the treatment.
How long will the results last?
The results of our Cheek Fillers in our Nottingham, East Midlands clinic will last 9-12 months. This will vary depending on the individual client, as someone with a fast metabolism will find they do not last as long, while someone with a slower metabolism will find they last longer. The more treatments that you have, the longer your results will last as you create a build-up of product.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects of Cheek Fillers are very minimal. We use a blunt-tip cannula for a cheek augmentation treatment to ensure your safety as there is less chance of dermal filler being injected into an artery or vein. This also results in less bruising and swelling when compared with other aesthetic treatments.
You may notice minimal bruising, swelling, tenderness and redness. Most clients experience no downtime and any symptoms can be easily managed with over-the-counter medication. Full healing will take 1-2 weeks at which point you should have no remaining side effects. We will provide full aftercare instructions following your treatment and our team is on hand to assist at any point should you have any discomfort or concerns.
Is Cheek fillers - Nottingham treatment painful?
Cheek Fillers are almost completely painless and instead feels like pressure on your cheekbone. You will feel a slight scratch as the needle is first injected. We use clinical grade numbing cream to ensure your comfort during treatment and there is Lidocaine in the dermal filler to further numb the area as the product is being injected.
