What Treatment Do We Offer For Cheek Augmentation?
As you age, the cheeks may flatten and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC or JUVÉDERM Ultra XC are designed to add volume beneath the skin's surface, which provides lift and contour to the cheek area.
What to Expect:
Cheek filler uses the injections of dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC or JUVÉDERM Ultra XC. During the treatment, small volumes of filler are injected at several places along the cheekbone. This process changes the contours of the area by filling in the skin from the inside out, as well as restore volume to the apples of your cheeks. The result is cheeks that look more prominent and sculpted. The process is quick and virtually painless with little to no downtime, as you should not get much swelling in this area and bruising is minimal.
How Long Will The Results Last?
The longevity of your results is largely dependent on the age of the patient, their metabolism, the amount of exercise they do regularly, and the normal blood flow to the face. For example, someone who is young with a fast metabolism and more blood flow to the face will most likely burn through filler quicker than someone who is older. In addition to this, filler in certain areas of the face tends to last longer than others. For examples, lip fillers only last about 6 months due to how much we move our mouths. However, filler in areas such as the cheeks can last up to 2 years. Please remember individual results will always vary.
