Withdrawn cheeks can make us look tired and older beyond our years.
As Esteem, Cheek Injection treatment is designed to combat the common signs of aging and transform the appearance of the cheeks. This is done with dermal filler injections, which is a non-surgical procedure that can restore volume to the cheeks.
This can achieve a more youthful facial contour for patients. In addition, this treatment can work well to diminish the appearance of jowls that can develop from a loss of skin elasticity and cheek volume as we get older.
• Non-invasive procedure
• Fast and simple treatment
• Minimal downtime
• Little discomfort
• Results last between 18 to 24 months
• More plump cheeks
Before you receive check injections, it is necessary for all patients to attend a consultation with a professional from Esteem. This will allow you to learn more about what you can expect from dermal fillers and how the procedure is performed. In addition, patients will be able to have their questions answered and any concerned addressed. A professional will be able to advise whether this is the right procedure for you.
It is common for treatment on tear troughs to be completed at the same time as the cheeks. This is because of the close proximity between the two areas on the face and the need to achieve natural looking results that complement each other. This can be discussed during the consultation and whether it is necessary for the patient.
Before you receive cheek injections, the area will be numbed with an anaesthetic cream. This will make sure the process is as comfortable and pain-free as possible for the patient. At Esteem, every effort is made to make sure patients feel as relaxed as possible.
The dermal fillers will be injected into the skin on the cheeks with a fine needle. Once the substance is injected underneath the skin, a professional will lightly massage the cheeks to distribute it evenly and create plumpness. This procedure normally takes around 30 minutes.
Cheek injections are suitable for men and women, as well as for any skin type. An ideal candidate would be someone who has lost some youthful volume in the cheeks and skin has reduced elasticity through aging and wishes to restore the natural contour of the cheeks. It can also be a suitable treatment if you suffer from jowls with older age.
Minimal discomfort is associated with cheek injections. The anaesthetic cream minimises any pain from the injections. Most patients report good tolerance to this procedure.
Some mild swelling and slight bruising are common after receiving cheek injections. However, this should only be straight after the treatment and should subside within 48 hours of having dermal fillers. In addition, the skin may be tender to touch for a few days.
The downtime associated with check injections is minimal. In fact, many people return to their daily routine straight away. After the procedure, you are free to leave the clinic as soon as you are ready.
