Looking younger, and reducing or preventing the signs of ageing completely, is a key aim for many people. And that’s why there are so many different aesthetic procedures and treatments available. Dermal fillers are one of the most popular options across all demographics and age ranges. And cheek fillers are a specific type of dermal filler. But how can cheek fillers help you look younger? And could this be the right option for you and your skin? Well, here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic in Preston, we are leading dermal filler experts. And this is our guide to everything you should know about cheek fillers.
What are cheek fillers?
Cheek fillers, like other types of dermal filler, are injections of hyaluronic acid into the facial skin tissue. These are generally injections into the skin below the eyes, or around the cheek bone area.
How can cheek fillers help you look younger?
So, how can these injections of hyaluronic acid help you to maintain a youthful appearance, or reduce the signs of ageing? Well, there are actually several ways, including:
- Replacing lost volume – as we age, the structure of the skin begins to break down. And this can be more noticeable around the cheeks, and below the eye, where fat deposits underneath the skin can actually be depleted, or begin to move. And this lost volume and structure results in sagging skin, or hollow patches developing below the eyes, making you look older than you really are. But cheek fillers replace this lost volume by replacing the hyaluronic acid, and in turn, help to replace volume, leading to a more youthful appearance.
- Providing facial structure – high cheekbones that are well defined, are typical facial features that are associated with youth, and looking younger. As a result, even if your face has not lost volume, cheek fillers can help to add more structure, and more definition to your facial contours, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
- Nourishing the skin – hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found throughout the human body, but 50% of our hyaluronic acid is found in the skin tissue. Here it plays an essential role, alongside elastin and collagen, for providing structure and tissue flexibility. The hyaluronic acid provides hydration and nutrients to both of the collagen and elastin, to help prevent these from breaking down. As a result, cheek fillers, made with hyaluronic acid, can help to replace lost nutrients and connections within the skin. Not only will this help your skin feel rejuvenated and look brighter and healthier, but it will also provide vital support for your collagen and elastin cells. This can help you stay looking younger, for longer.
