Cheek Enhancement

What is a cheek enhancement procedure?

A beautiful face is often complemented by full cheeks and a high cheekbone. Flat cheeks can make your face look thin and aged. Nonsurgical cheek enhancement is a procedure that augments or reshapes your cheeks with dermal filler in a minimal invasive manner.

Any patient who has low profile cheekbones can benefit from nonsurgical cheek enhancement procedure.

What are the types of nonsurgical cheek enhancement?

Nonsurgical cheek enhancement involves injecting dermal fillers into selected areas of the cheeks. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment primarily used to shape and proportion the face, making them a very powerful tool in facial rejuvenation and enhancement. This is a preferred non-surgical method used at Restore Cosmetics.

The filler works by adding volume and fullness to the skin. It uses a naturally occurring substance found in the body, thus these fillers are absorbed quicker than other products. It also means that the results of such fillers are reversible.

How is cheek enhancement done with a filler?

After giving local anaesthesia, the physician injects the filler into the desired areas. The procedure may take 15 to 20 minutes. The results of the injection will depend on the product used. Repeat treatments may be recommended to sustain the new look.

What are the risks and benefits associated with the procedure?

There are no serious complications documented with nonsurgical cheek enhancement. Mild redness or swelling can occur at the injection site following the procedure; this is temporary and usually goes away in a few days. There is no down-time and patients may go back to their work or daily routine after the procedure.
