Dermal Fillers » Cheek Enhancement
Do you feel your cheeks are hollow? Do you want more prominent cheek bones? Is there shadowing under your nose? Dr Lina Kotecha can enhance your cheeks with dermal fillers giving you the cheeks/cheek bones you have always wanted.
The cheek bone area is a key treatment area for many individuals seeking a lift in one of several aspects of the face. The zygomatic or malar area of the cheeks is the area of the high cheek bone below the rims of the eyes that extends out to the sides of the face. Over time, skeletal changes, fat loss and collagen depletetion will flatten the malar area of the cheeks. This can in turn accentuate sagging in many areas of the face like the hollows under eyes, the jowls and a downward turn of the lips.
Summary Of Your Treatment
This procedure is used to lift and rejuvenate your cheeks, all without the need for painful surgical operations. Dr. Lina Kotecha use dermal fillers (made from Hyaluronic Acid) to improve the appearance of your cheeks and reduce saggy, aged-looking skin.
As you get older, you may begin to notice some sagginess in the skin on your face. This is a common sign of ageing, but Dr. Lina Kotecha can use dermal fillers to make your cheeks look a little fuller and reduce unsightly jowls and wrinkles. Alternatively, younger patients may simply desire more prominent/defined cheekbones.
Dr Lina Kotecha begins by applying a cream containing a topical anaesthetic across the face. Once the topical anaesthetic has taken effect, a series of several small injections containing dermal filler will be administered. The dermal filler will fill out your cheeks and replenish their youthful appearance.
If your cheeks have become jowly or started to sag, the facial fillers will help to reverse this classic sign of ageing, giving your cheeks added lift and a vibrant fullness. This effect will last for 12-18 months.
You may notice a mild swelling/soreness straight after the procedure. This is a perfectly normal reaction to the injection and it will subside in due course usually within 48 hours.
Cheek enhancement is not suitable for pregnant/breastfeeding women or anyone who suffers from severe allergies.
