CHEEK & MIDFACE ENHANCEMENT

As we age, our bone mass diminishes, which means less support for the soft tissues of the face. Loss of facial volume can depend on many other factors such as genetics and weight and can give the appearance of sunken cheeks. A decrease in this bony support and descent of the fat pads, can create sagging of the midface and produce prominent nasolabial creases and a tired and aged appearance. Restoring volume using safe dermal fillers will help to improve the appearance of the area.
We can also use dermal fillers to contour and define cheekbones and the midface.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DOES CHEEK ENHANCEMENT WORK?

As we age, we begin to notice some laxity in the skin or face. This is a common sign of ageing, however dermal fillers can be used replace that volume loss, reduce jowls and wrinkles. Alternatively, younger patients may simply desire more prominent or defined cheekbones.

WHAT DOES THE CHEEK ENHANCEMENT PROCEDURE ENTAIL?

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are used to give a more defined and pronounced cheek bone appearance. This is achieved by administering several small injections of dermal filler along the contour of the cheek bone. Careful placed injections can lift the face. Placement, result and the experience of the practitioner themselves are critical components of this procedure. It is also commonly used to treat lines caused by smoking and sun damage.

Please note: Any injectable procedure will only be undertaken after your face to face consultation with one of our doctors, during which a full assessment will be carried out and full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

A lifted and more youthful look to the mid and lower face. We can create contour for those wishing for a stronger profile. Furthermore, the mid cheek can support the lower eyelid, and in many cases, adding volume to the cheeks can improve the appearance of under eye bags, tear troughs and hollows.

One of the advantages of treating the cheeks is that it lifts the entire face and reduces naso-labial lines and jowls. The shape of the face can then be restored to a youthful ‘upside down triangle’.

DOES THE TREATMENT HURT?

At Nassif MedSpa, everything is done to make any discomfort minimal. A fine needle is used and local anesthetic is given to numb the area and make it pain free.
