Full, firm and smooth cheeks are frequently associated with a healthy, youthful appearance. Replacing lost volume in the cheek area elevates loose skin and restores facial contours and plumpness. It also subtlety improves lines in the lower face such as the smile lines (nasolabials),corners of the mouth to chin lines (marionette lines) and the jowl area. These areas can be treated in conjunction with a cheek ENHANCEMENT treatment. Non-surgical cheek enhancement can also be used to give flat cheeks a more sculptured yet natural appearance.
Amongst the Clinic’s preferred fillers for cheek augmentation are Radiesse® and Juvéderm Voluma®.Both these fillers give a natural volume to the cheeks and surrounding tissue. Radiesse® is a calcium based injectable dermal filler that works by lifting and contouring to smooth out the signs of lost volume and ageing. It is also beneficial when enhancing particularly sunken cheeks as over time Radiesse® stimulates the production of the body’s natural collagen and results may last 12-18 months.
Juvéderm Voluma® is a hyaluronic acid injectable treatment used to replace lost volume, fill lines and wrinkles and to restore moisture content deep within the skin’s layers. It too can last 12 months and longer in some people.

Cheek enhancement typically takes just 30 minutes to perform after which you will be ready to return to your daily routine. You may be a little red +/or swollen immediately after the treatment but this resolves within a very short space of time. Bruising may occur but make-up can be worn the next day.
