A lifted, radiant complexion; Cheek filler treatment is an effective anti-ageing procedure; designed to accentuate your best features by enhancing the natural shaping and contour of your face.
As we grow older, the skin surrounding your cheeks can droop and sag as a symptom of the natural ageing process, and your favourite facial features can become hidden. Enhanced Facial Aesthetics can rejuvenate your facial structure with Dermal Fillers, by lifting cheeks, adding volume and minimising lines and wrinkles.

Cheek fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a substance that naturally occurs in the dermis of the skin. It can be found in many beauty products, as it is a hydrophilic molecule, meaning that it attracts water. It can hold up to 1000 x its own weight in water making it an excellent hydrator.
Cheek fillers are a cosmetic treatment, and like all procedures, there is always a chance that something could go wrong. However, if performed by experienced and qualified practitioners, it is a safe procedure.
It varies from person to person but generally, filler treatments are not that painful. Of course, the discomfort level will mostly depend on your own pain tolerance. We do use numbing cream to help reduce pain.
Immediately following treatment, you may experience minor redness, swelling, and bruising. The treated area may also feel tender. These effects usually last 2-3 days and do not prevent patients from returning to work and other normal activities immediately after leaving the clinic.
Typically, results last between 12-24 months, depending on the product used and your body’s ability to absorb the injected material. Many patients undergo regular touch-up injections in order to maintain their rejuvenated appearance.
We recommend that you only go to medically qualified and experienced injectors. Any non medically trained person can attend a course and provide this service, however if a complication occurs they will not have the knowledge or prescription drugs required to resolve the issue.
We do not believe that non medics such as beauticians have the appropriate level of medical knowledge and training for filler injection treatment. Of course, this is our own opinion and you are advised to do your own research.
Dermal fillers may be right for you if you are looking to fill in wrinkles caused by loss of facial volume and elasticity. Dermal fillers can restore this lost volume, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin. These injections can also be used to plump up facial areas such as the lips, enhancing their appearance.
This treatment is not effective on wrinkles caused by muscle movement. Muscle relaxant injections are a more appropriate choice for treating such lines. Dermal filler injections are appropriate for most adults who are in good general health. If you are looking for a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that will smooth out wrinkles and achieve younger looking skin, Anti-wrinkle injections could be for you.
As its effects wear off, the skin will return to its natural, pre-treatment state. If you decide against further injections, your skin will be left in the same condition it was before treatment; it will not be any more wrinkled than it was before treatment. Some products stimulate new collagen growth, which may lead to long-lasting improvements in skin volume, even after the injected dermal filler has been absorbed by the body.
