From adolescence through to our mid to late twenties, our cheeks appear plump and rounded; this is in part due to the beautifully replete fat pads which lay just under the skin. However, as we age the gradual diminishment of collagen production and a reduction of facial fat creates the appearance of accentuated cheekbones and flattened out facial planes. As this process continues, the cheeks may take on a sunken aspect, less of the connective protein elastin is produced and so the skin loses elasticity, and this results in the emergence of fine lines and wrinkles. This process typically begins for many of us in our mid to late twenties as our skin’s natural support begins to function less efficiently. This is why many people seek options to treat flat cheeks and reinject a youthful fullness.
Factors That Cause Flat Cheeks
The natural ageing process is the primary culprit for the loss of pulchritudinous. But flattened cheeks can also be promoted by lifestyle factors such as extreme dieting, smoking, prolonged sun exposure, loss of teeth, and excessive long term stress. Whilst flattened cheeks pose no immediate threat to your health, from an aesthetic perspective, sunken cheeks may negatively impact on your self-image and are sometimes a cause of insecurity for women and men.
Flattened cheeks are the origination behind many of the changes that occur in our faces which make our faces appear aged in a less than desirable way. As tissue volume is gradually lost, gravity inevitably exerts its toll on the tissue that is left.
Why Choose Dermal Fillers To Treat Flat Cheeks
With the precise use of dermal fillers, lost volume can be regained and your overall appearance can be beautifully and naturally restored to its former character. The noticeable features consistent with ageing, such as dark circles under the eyes, nasolabial folds, and sunken cheeks fade or disappear, leaving you looking younger, healthier, and exquisitely refreshed. When dermal fillers are used to treat flat cheeks, this procedure often provides a solid foundation for many other treatments.
An experienced aesthetic doctor will use dermal fillers to raise the volume of the area above and around your cheekbones. This provides the illusion of a more defined bone structure. By injecting volume under your skin, cheek fillers can also smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
The Who, What, And Where Of Cheek Fillers
Your cheeks form the basis and framework of your face so choosing a skilled and experienced doctor and the right product is of tantamount importance. Medical director Dr Tapan Patel of PHI Clinic offers a state-of-the-art cosmetic clinic that specialises in non-surgical aesthetic procedures such as Dermal Fillers. PHI Clinic is home to an international team of the most respected and talented cosmetic doctors and clinicians. It is widely endorsed as one of the finest clinics in the world and all of the PHI team are experienced aesthetic clinicians who have received the highest degree of training.
Your clinician will expertly use injectable fillers to temporarily create volume and restore a youthful appearance to your cheeks. Dermal fillers usually produce delightful results for between 12 to 24 months. At PHI we only use the Juvederm range by Allergan as they offer the consummate products for natural and elegant results. Following the treatment, skin’s hydration is increased, collagen production is stimulated, and the dermis even maintains its elasticity. This happens because the Juvederm range contains hyaluronic acid, a water-holding molecule, which makes it perfect for filling lines and wrinkles and plumping up and shaping cheeks.
Cheek Filler treatment Aftercare
Following your treatment, there is very little downtime and you will see the results immediately. However, these can take a few days to settle and show their optimal effects. As with any injectable procedure, some swelling and bruising are expected, but this can be reduced if you carefully follow the aftercare advice your doctor gives you, such as avoiding alcohol and smoking and holding off on any strenuous exercise for a few days.
