Cheek Fillers

Are you looking to add a beautiful, youthful contour to your cheeks?

Cheek Fillers: Natural cheek fillers for beautiful facial contours

Cheek fillers are a popular and simple treatment for patients who want to sculpt the area around their cheek bones, adding a more youthful contour to their face. The fillers are placed within the skin around the cheek bones, to create definition and contouring, and in some cases improve symmetry. As we age, the skin on our cheeks (below the eye sockets and over to the folds of the nose and near the lips) loses volume and firmness, and can begin to droop, causing more pronounced smile lines, one of the most visible giveaways of our age.

Cheek fillers add a boost, giving the skin a more youthful and plump look, smoothing out lines and wrinkles. Some patients also request fillers if they feel their cheekbones are flat or non-existent. In these cases, the fillers can also be used to reshape the face with angles and contours, even on younger patients. Contact our team at Fresh Faces Cosmetic Medicine if you are considering cheek fillers. We offer free no obligation consultations.

What are cheek fillers?

Cheek fillers are a non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that is used to add volume and improve the shape of the face along the cheekbones. The fillers are injected into the skin to fill the cheek area, making cheekbones appear more defined, and tightening the skin on the lower part of our face. The results can be noticed immediately.

It is a common treatment to improve the appearance of the nasolabial fold. This wrinkle deepens or becomes more pronounced as we age and the skin on our cheeks begins to droop. Cheek fillers tighten and plump the skin, causing the lines and wrinkles to diminish or in some cases, disappear. Cheek fillers can also be used to give the illusion of more defined cheekbones, for patients who feel that theirs are non-existent, if their cheeks are flat or their faces are round. The fillers are injected under the skin, giving more volume and a lift to the cheek area, making cheekbones more noticeable.

At Fresh Faces Cosmetic Medicine, we use injectables that are sourced from award winning Swiss company Teoxanne and are made from a naturally occurring protein found throughout the skin. It is known for its ability to retain moisture within the skin. As we age we start to lose this molecule from our skin and consequently that youthful fullness of the skin. With fillers, as they are injected into the skin, the process works from the inside to increase volume and give skin a plump, hydrated look. The fillers not only add volume, but the injections also encourage the skin’s natural production of collagen. In our office, we only use the highest quality injectables, more specifically ultra-premium brands from Europe and Switzerland. There is little risk of adverse or allergic reactions from the injections. Additionally, cheek filler injections are non-surgical and should not be confused with cheek or facial implants.

What to expect

Your Fresh Faces cheek fillers treatment experience

Whilst every dermal and cheek filler journey is unique, you can expect your appointment with us to go something like this.

Free consultation
At your initial consultation with one of our highly experienced injectors, we will answer any questions and gain an understanding of your desires, whilst taking into account your medical history. We take the time to really listen, and to ensure the treatment and volume of filler chosen is right for your unique face and desired look. At Fresh Faces Cosmetic Medicine, our goal is to make sure you don’t look ‘overdone’, giving you a fresh, natural look.

The treatment itself takes around 30 minutes and involves injecting a gel like fluid through a fine needle (cannula) into the lower layers of the skin. As it can involve some discomfort, a topical anesthetic or numbing cream may be used, helping to make your experience as comfortable as possible.

Your Cheek fillers treatment.

After the initial consultation, most patients can proceed with the cheek fillers treatment immediately. A topical anesthesia or numbing cream may be applied to the surface of the skin and around the area where the injections will be placed. Cheek fillers are injected into the lower layers of the skin. The entire treatment, including time for the anesthesia, takes less than an hour.

Cheek or dermal injections are done with a very fine cannula, thus ensuring maximal safety and delivering precise results. The results can be seen right away. This is a benefit to using fillers, since the injectors can control how much volume is created and gradually increase until you are happy with the results. At Fresh Faces Cosmetic Medicine, our experienced team uses precision to deliver results that are a subtle, natural enhancement that lifts your cheekbones and the corners of your mouth.

After your cheek filler treatment, it will take approximately one to two weeks for the fillers to settle, and you can see the full result.

Recovery time and possible side-effects for cheek fillers.

Common side effects are tenderness, swelling, redness or bleeding near the injection site, or bruising on the cheeks. Our injectors will discuss these reactions with you before your consultation. Every individual is different and recovery time will depend on the amount of fillers used and your body’s own pace of healing. In most cases, you can return to your daily life and routine straight away.

Recommendations for your recovery and for cheek fillers aftercare include the following:

  • Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water, and avoid foods that are known to cause dehydration, such as salty, spicy or processed food, as well as alcohol 
  • For the first few night after treatment try to sleep on your back with your head elevated on 2 pillows.
  • Avoid excessive sweating from hot baths or jacuzzis, as well as and strenuous exercise for 24-48 hours

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do cheek fillers last?

Results are noticed immediately after cheek or dermal filler injections, though it may take a week or so for your cheeks to fully settle down, and for you to see the full effects. For most patients, cheek fillers can last for six months to up to two years. After six months, you may want to return to our office for touch-ups to maintain your results. Factors that affect results are the individual’s age, skin type and lifestyle, as well as their natural rate of tissue turnover. Dermal fillers administered by experienced suitably qualified staff are very low risk and have very low risks or adverse reactions. Over time, the fillers are broken down and safely absorbed.

Are cheek fillers safe?

All medical procedures carry risk, some of which can be quite serious. Here at FFCM your safety is our highest priority, with our on-site specialist in Emergency Medicine you know you’re in safe hands. Allergies or adverse reactions are very rare. The procedure is non-invasive, simple and has very little side effects or down time. Many patients can return to their daily routine immediately after their treatment. The doctor/nurse will go over all possible side effects, the most common being redness, swelling, bruising, and bleeding near the injection points. These are normal reactions and should disappear within a few days. You may also experience skin conditions such as rashes or acne-like bumps near the injections sites. This is more rare, and should also subside after a few days as well. 

During your initial consultation, the doctor/nurse will examine your skin for abnormalities, and also ask about your medical history. Patients with infections or open wounds on the cheeks will most likely be asked to wait until it heals. Additionally, patients who have bleeding disorders, autoimmune diseases, or allergies to fillers or local anesthesia may have additional risks. 

 

Should any of the side effects last for more than a few days, please call us immediately.

Are there any risks involved?

As with any medical procedure, there are risks involved, and these will be explained to you during the consultation before the treatment. The doctor/nurse will go over all possible side effects, the most common being redness, swelling and bruising. All of these are normal and will disappear in a few days. 

Dermal fillers administered by experienced suitably qualified staff are very low risk. With one of Perth’s most experienced injecting teams, you’re in safe hands and can rely on us to be 100% honest and transparent with you at all times.

Every patient is different, and we personalise treatments, therefore prices can vary. During your initial consultation, the doctor or nurse will go over costs and payment options.The amount of fillers or the price may depend on how dramatic of a change you want and the amount of fillers used. We do offer payment plans, so please give us a call with questions or to discuss options for Afterpay for cosmetic injections
