What is it / how does it work
A dermal filler is a substance that mimics the body’s own Hyaluronic Acid (HA). They are manmade and non-animal.
Our skin naturally produces HA when we are young, keeping the skin hydrated and elastic.
What can it treat
Cheek fillers are used to give a defined definition to the cheek area.
Cheek filler can also replace loss of volume.
How is it performed
Dermal filler is injected along the contour of the cheekbone until the desired outcome is achieved. There may be some discomfort so we make every effort to keep this to a minimum
There will be swelling, slight discomfort and possible bruising but usually subsides within 48 hours
Recommended after care advice;
Do not touch the area for at least 2 hours
No strenuous activity for 24 hours
No deep massage or alternative clinical treatments in the treated area for 2 weeks
