What are cheek fillers?

cheek fillers

Cheek fillers have risen in popularity over the previous 3 years, and they now rival lip fillers as one of the top dermal filler options. Cheek filler or cheek enhancement involves reshaping and restructuring the cheek bone area, to create an enhanced cheekbone appearance. But before rushing into any aesthetic procedure, its a good idea to ask a few questions. And here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic in Preston, we are often asked similar questions about cheek filler. As a result, we have put together our guide to the frequently asked questions specifically for cheek fillers.

Cheek fillers are a type of procedure that involves injecting dermal fillers, which are made from Hyaluronic acid. This adds volume to the injection site, and can be used to subtly define your cheekbones and improve their appearance. This also helps to add structure and symmetry to the face.

Hyaluronic acid is simply a substance that occurs naturally in the body, and this is responsible for attracting and retaining water. For this reason, dermal fillers made from Hyaluronic acid provide soft, smooth results, and simply break down to be used in the body, leaving no residue behind.

Cheek Fillers FAQ

Cheek fillers are a fantastic option for some people. But it’s important to know the full details, so here are the questions we are frequently asked in regard to cheek filler:

How long do cheek fillers last?

Cheek fillers are not permanent, and this means they will disappear after around 12 months. The exact time will depend on the metabolism of your own body, so for some people the dermal fillers may need to be re-injected after around 6 to 8 months, while others will last for 14 months.

Do cheek filler injections hurt?

Cheek filler injections can be uncomfortable throughout the procedure, but this would not be classed as painful. A numbing cream will be applied to help reduce any pain. This will also help with pain and recovery after the treatment. After the treatment there may be some swelling and bruising. This is totally normal and should subside within 24 hours.

How long does the procedure last?

The whole procedure will only take around 45 minutes, but you should follow the aftercare instructions for the following 24 hours. You can continue with your day to day activities, straight after the cheek filler injections, as there is no recovery time.
