Sunken and hollow cheeks are give-aways of ageing appearance. Cheek fullness has always been associated with youthfulness and is viewed as a reflection of general well-being. As we age, our skin loses fat and collagen, thus contributing to the appearance of hollow cheeks, tired look under the eyes and sunken temples. Cheek fillers are one of Perth's best kept anti-ageing secrets and we're going to tell you why. Before we uncover the anti-ageing benefits, first lets discuss exactly what are dermal cheek fillers.
What are Cheek Fillers?
Globally, there are many different types of fillers, varying substantially in quality and therefore safety and results. The dermal cheek fillers we use at Al Nour Clinic have been selected based on reputation for their safety profile and for delivering excellent results. They are made from a biodegradable gel of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring composition. Fillers are used to instantly add volume and lift sunken and hollow-looking cheeks. They can also be used to contour the face and fill-in wrinkles, giving a more refreshed and younger looking appearance.
The Anti-Ageing Benefits of Cheek Fillers
Not only can dermal fillers be used to bring back youthful fullness, they also have the benefit of lifting the cheeks, filling depressed scars and lines, contouring the jawline, adding volume to temples and reducing hallows under eyes. Fillers have a very hydrating effect, further assisting to promote healthy, younger looking skin.
Cheek filler treatment is a well kept secret as it involves very little downtime, giving a cost-effective and recovery-free possible alternative to a surgical face lift. The change in appearance of the cheek area is visible immediately. You can return to your normal daily routine straight after treatment. Side effects typically involve some localised swelling, redness and bruising that a full-coverage foundation can address.
The results of fillers generally last for 18-24 months and each treatment can be customised according to your evolving skin concerns and goals. At Al Nour Clinic, we have over 18 years cosmetic medicine experience and can tailor a skin care and treatment plan according to your desired results and budget.
What To Expect During Cheek Filler Treatment
During your consultation, your clinician will discuss with you your treatment goals and advise on the best areas for filler placement. The type of filler to be used and the number of vials required to achieve optimum results is agreed. Your clinician with then clean the treatment area with an alcohol or antiseptic wipe. Any pain can be minimised by the use of a topical numbing cream or a local anesthetic injection. The filler is injected using a very fine needle or canula.
