Cheek Augmentation Melbourne
Shape, contour, rejuvenate the mid-face
Cheek augmentation, which is also known as a cheek lift, cheek enhancement or cheek contouring, is a non-surgical procedure that uses a naturally occurring substance found in the body called hyaluronic acid. This is used to modify the contours of the cheek area of your face.
As we age, our cheekbones lose depth and volume and become hollow. Cheekbones give the face structure and are seen as a sign of beauty. Consequently, those with flatter or less visible cheekbones may look at non-surgical cheek augmentation as an effective, yet subtle treatment option. A number of reasons can sway a patient to consider cheek augmentation, having flat or deflated-looking cheeks, cheeks that lack definition, hollows in the cheeks and the temples and even under-eye bags, lines and wrinkles on the cheeks. Additionally, the natural aging process and weight loss can lead those that once had more prominent cheeks to seek restorative treatment.
What is involved in cheek augmentation?
At Flawless Rejuvenation Skin Clinic we use a series of small of injections to shape the cheeks with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. We use two main brands of dermal filler. Specific information regarding these brands can be discussed during your initial consultation.
The physician will determine the areas and extent of treatment and discuss your objectives with you regarding the issues you wish to correct.
The procedure is performed with local anaesthetic to numb the area of treatment, to reduce discomfort.
The product will then be injected; the total treatment time is roughly only 20 to 30 minutes. The results will be noticed instantly alongside some swelling but this should be mild, it can stay for up to a week after the injections. Cheeks do not swell as much as the lips, as a result, you can see the results instantly without taking swelling into consideration. Slight redness, bruising and tenderness may occur around the area for up to a week after the treatment.
As an in and out procedure, you can go back to work the same day. The only advice is to wear minimal or very natural makeup over the area that was injected.
