One of the initial areas that suffers from volume loss with age is the cheeks, which lose subcutaneous fat as well as collagen and elastin. This can lead to the cheeks looking flat or hollow, causing what some label a ‘gaunt’ look. Midface fillers and implants are widely used to correct this, with the former favoured by many doctors. We offer dermal fillers at PHI as a non surgical alternative to implants that last for up to 24 months with no associated downtime.
Cheek fillers for volume loss
Juvederm fillers are based on a naturally occurring sugar called hyaluronic acid (HA) that attracts and retains water for a volumising effect when introduced beneath the skin via a needle. It takes a highly skilled professional to determine where product needs to be injected, especially when considering factors like age, gender, and ethnicity.
All of our doctors are highly trained in performing dermal filler treatments and regularly attend in house training days to learn new techniques for increasingly safe and effective procedures.
Midface fillers for cheekbone enhancement
Fillers can be used to augment the planes of the face for a more balanced silhouette and profile of the face by adding volume along the cheekbone. This is most usually done using a cannula, and will only be performed by our doctors at PHI Clinic.
Midface filler for jowling
Cheek filler can be used to reduce the appearance of jowling along the jaw when introduced into strategic points. When lost volume is replaced in the midface, this sagging in the lower face is diminished, for a more youthful and refreshed appearance without surgery.
For physicians, you can see a breakdown of how to create natural, effective results when treating the jawline on eMASTR, Dr Tapan’s online aesthetic training platform.
Cheek filler consultation
Prior to any midface filler treatment, we require a consultation to determine your suitability and assess your highlighted concerns. We also require 24 hours between treatment and consultation as part of our policy, in order to ensure that every patient has an opportunity to make an informed decision on their journey with us.
