Achieve the Ultimate Cheek Lift with Fillers at Our Walsall Clinic

Last Modified: April 5, 2024

A well-defined and youthful facial contour is often characterised by lifted, full and sculpted cheeks. However, the natural ageing process can lead to volume loss and sagging, resulting in a lacklustre appearance. At our Multi-Award Winning Medical Aesthetic Clinic in Birmingham, we offer the ultimate solution for those in Walsall seeking to rejuvenate this crucial aspect of their face–cheek fillers. These non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments use dermal fillers to restore volume and lift the cheeks, creating a refreshed, youthful and beautifully defined visage. 

In this ultimate guide, we'll delve into the world of cheek fillers, exploring the different types, benefits, procedural details and results that can be achieved. So, let's embark on a journey to revitalise your facial contours and embrace a more confident, attractive you.

Understanding Cheek Fillers and Their Benefits

Cheek fillers are injectable dermal fillers specifically designed to add volume to the cheek area and contour the mid-face. They consist of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. As we age, hyaluronic acid production diminishes, resulting in a lack of volume and definition in the face. The benefits of cheek fillers include:

1. Improved facial contours: Cheek fillers can create a more defined, balanced and harmonious facial structure.

2. Restored cheek volume: By adding volume to the cheeks, cheek fillers help lift and plump the face, giving a more youthful appearance.

3. Enhanced facial proportions: Cheek fillers can achieve optimal proportions between facial features, contributing to an aesthetically pleasing appearance.

4. Non-surgical and minimally invasive: Cheek fillers offer an alternative to surgery, eliminating the associated risks and lengthy recovery times.

Types of Cheek Fillers

There are various brands of cheek fillers available, each designed to cater to individual needs and preferences. Some of the most popular options include:

1. Juvéderm Voluma: Ideal for restoring lost volume, Juvéderm Voluma is formulated with hyaluronic acid and lidocaine for patient comfort. It provides exceptional lifting and sculpting capabilities, with results lasting up to two years.

2. Restylane Lyft: Another hyaluronic acid-based filler, Restylane Lyft is also perfect for enhancing volume and achieving a lifted, sculpted appearance. The results can last between six and 18 months.

3. Sculptra: Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid-based filler that works by stimulating collagen production, gradually improving facial contours over time. Results can last up to two years, making it an excellent option for those looking for a more natural and long-lasting enhancement.

4. Bellafill: Bellafill is composed of a combination of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres and bovine collagen, providing immediate and long-lasting results. The unique formula allows for enhanced volume and a smoother appearance for up to five years.

The Cheek Filler Treatment Procedure

Before beginning the cheek filler treatment, a thorough consultation with a qualified practitioner is essential to discuss the desired outcomes, assess facial anatomy and determine the ideal type and amount of filler required. The treatment procedure typically involves the following steps:

1. Cleansing: The practitioner will cleanse the face (especially the cheek area) to ensure that it is free of oils, cosmetics and other impurities.

2. Topical anaesthesia: Although most cheek fillers contain an integrated anaesthetic (like lidocaine), a topical anaesthetic may be applied beforehand to minimise discomfort.

3. Injection: Using a fine needle or cannula, the practitioner will inject the filler strategically within the dermis of the cheek area, achieving a customised result that aligns with the patient's goals and facial structure.

4. Massaging and moulding: The practitioner may gently massage and mould the filler to create a smooth and even finish, ensuring a natural, harmonious enhancement.

5. Cooling: To reduce the likelihood of swelling or bruising, the practitioner may apply a cooling gel or ice pack after completing the injections.

The treatment typically takes around 30-45 minutes, with minimal downtime. Patients can usually return to their daily activities immediately following the procedure.

Post-Treatment Care and Results

After receiving cheek fillers, it is essential to follow your practitioner's post-treatment care instructions to ensure optimal results and minimise potential complications. Some common guidelines include:

1. Avoid touching or massaging the treated area for at least six hours unless instructed by the practitioner, as this may displace the filler.

2. Refrain from heavy exercise and excessive heat exposure (e.g., sauna or sunbathing) for 24-48 hours post-treatment, as these may exacerbate swelling or bruising.

3. Manage swelling or bruising with cold compresses or over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication if advised by the practitioner.

4. Avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours to reduce the risk of infection.

Cheek filler results are often visible immediately, with final results apparent within one to two weeks as any swelling or bruising subsides. Depending on the type of cheek filler used, results can last anywhere from six months to five years. Regular top-up treatments help maintain the desired effect.

Potential Risks and Side Effects

Cheek filler treatments are generally considered to be safe and well-tolerated, but as with any cosmetic treatment, there is a potential for side effects. Some common, temporary side effects include swelling, redness, bruising, tenderness, and itching at the injection site. These typically subside within a week.

Rare but more severe complications may include infection, allergic reactions, vascular occlusion, filler migration or lumpiness, and scarring. Selecting a qualified and experienced practitioner is crucial to minimise potential risks and ensure the best possible results.
