Cheek Fillers

CHEEK AUGMENTATION USING DERMAL FILLER

The onset of ageing can be unkind. As we gradually lose so many vital components such as bone mass, tissue, fat, elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid from our faces as we grow older, detrimental effects such as skin sagging, dehydration and loss of volume can occur. One of the key areas that can suffer with age is the cheeks and lower face. As the skin begins to sag, the face can change shape and jowls can appear. Where in your youth you may have had a heart shaped face, you may find that your face takes on more of a square appearance as the years go by and this is synonymous with ageing. The lines from the nose to the mouth can become deeper set and create an overall heavy appearance to the lower face.

Here at Dr. MediSpa in Loughton and Harley street, Dr. Munir Somji offers injectable dermal fillers to restore lost volume and hydration to the face. Dermal fillers when injected in to the cheeks can lift sagging skin, create a more rounded cheek and offer that heart shaped face which we associate so much with youth and skin vitality.

Freqently asked questions

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances used to sculpt, plump and give volume to weak and sagging areas of the face such as the lips, temples, chin, nose and the cheeks. Made from a naturally occurring substance within the body called Hyaluronic Acid (HA), dermal fillers mimic and replace the natural HA that is lost over time and when contained in a more viscous gel substance, can create a lifting effect to the lower face and cheek area. When injected in to the cheeks, nose to mouth lines can be reduced and jowls can be lifted as well as the cheeks taking on a rounder, more sculpted appearance.

Am I suitable for dermal fillers for the cheeks?


Before you undergo any non-surgical treatment here at Dr. MediSpa, Dr. Somji will ask you to attend a no obligation consultation to assess your unique concerns, expected results and to ensure you are medically and emotionally fit and well for treatment. He will then decide whether dermal fillers for the cheeks would be an appropriate treatment for you.

What happens during the treatment?


To ensure that you remain comfortable throughout your treatment, a small amount of topical numbing cream will be applied to the area of injection. As most dermal fillers now contain Lidocaine, an anaesthetic which numbs at the point of injection, you will feel very little discomfort. Dr. Somji will then use a cannula (a blunt needle used for larger areas) or a traditional needle to inject the dermal filler in to the cheek area. He will then massage the dermal filler with his fingers to give a natural contour and smooth appearance.

Do cheek fillers hurt?


As dermal fillers contain Lidocaine, you should not feel any pain during this treatment. If Dr. Somji uses a cannula you may experience a little tugging and pulling which is completely normal. You may also feel a sensation of pressure as the product is injected in to the skin. These sensations can be a little strange but not uncomfortable. If you are extremely sensitive, Dr. Somji may decide to inject an anaesthetic prior to the treatment so that you are completely comfortable.
