Cheek Augmentation

Restoring the natural, youthful contours of the face without the need for surgery has never been so easy thanks to the versatility and simplicity of dermal fillers. As we age, the metabolic processes of the skin start to slow down, alongside a reduction in collagen and elastin production. This can leave your cheeks looking and feeling a little deflated as one of the first places on the face to suffer from premature ageing. Say goodbye to hollow, gaunt-looking cheekbones as our hyaluronic acid-based fillers restore plumpness for a more natural, beautiful appearance as opposed to a tired and aged face. Dermal cheek fillers are often combined with the treatment of unsightly nasolabial and marionette lines for a full facial rejuvenation.

Dermal fillers not only enhance your appearance and give a more youthful and fuller look, they also boost your body’s natural collagen production. At North West Aesthetics, we use Juvederm Voluma, which actually lifts the malar fat pad of the cheek. This corrects the ageing process, rather than just filling a line or wrinkle.

Frequently asked questions

By precisely injecting just beneath the skin, your doctor will lift both sides of the face, focusing on specific target areas and plumping out your facial tissue. Your doctor might also massage the filler as it is administered to help it settle beneath the skin. This is a highly safe and effective, minimally invasive treatment that makes clever use of a naturally-occurring bodily substance that not only lifts and plumps the skin, but also boosts the production of collagen and elastin.

You can expect a more youthful, structured appearance to your cheeks by gently introducing lost volume and eliminating a less than desirable sunken look to the face. With an immediately noticeable difference, your face will instantly appear bright and beautiful, with optimum results taking shape over the course of 1-2 weeks post-treatment.

We ask all of our patients to allow time for a thorough consultation prior to treatment so that we can achieve the best possible results, which is why your dermal filler procedure could take up to 30 minutes altogether.

The results from a treatment such as this are non-permanent as your body breaks down the hyaluronic acid-based fillers over the course of 12-15 months. For this reason, you will need to schedule repeat treatments to maintain your anti-ageing results, with results often lasting longer after each new treatment.

You'll be glad to know that no downtime is required post-treatment, allowing you to comfortably resume your daily routine as you leave the NWA clinic.

Should you notice slight swelling, bruising, redness or tenderness post-treatment, don't be alarmed as this is to be expected as your skin heals. These side effects are usually very minimal and will subside within around 48 hours, providing you take care not to aggravate the treatment area.

For patients suffering with hollow-like, gaunt-looking cheeks, dermal fillers could potentially inject a new lease of life into your face. However, pregnant and breastfeeding women cannot safely undertake a procedure like this and would need to wait until after this has come to an end.

At North West Aesthetics, our friendly and attentive team prioritise your wants and needs, offering bespoke treatment plans that work specifically for you. We take the time to get to the bottom of your concerns via a thorough consultation, before then considering the best possible course of action. A high standard of treatment and care is imperative, which is why our staff are extensively trained and experienced in all aspects of advanced non-surgical aesthetics, led by renowned medical doctor, Dr David Taylor.
