What Happens To Cheeks With Age?
With the natural ageing process, cheeks lose both volume and projection and start to sag over time. This is because your skull, the bony platform of your face, starts to shrink, while your fat pads and other soft tissues start to descend. The end result is your cheeks slide forwards and downwards on your face.
When cheeks start to sag, your jawline and the skin around your mouth lose tightness and firmness, from lack of tension from above, leading to lower face sag. The hollows under your eyes, known as your tear troughs, may also become more prominent. By affecting other areas of your face, loss of cheek volume and projection can add years to your appearance.
How Are Cheeks Treated?
Cheek augmentation is the process of lifting sagging cheeks using Dermal Fillers. With Dermal Fillers, Dr. Jodie will create lift (or the illusion of lift) through your cheeks, sculpt a more defined cheekbone and gently volumise your inner cheek. Her aim is to create angles and soft curves, so your face looks more defined but never puffy. Fortunately, in the right hands, improving the contour and definition of your cheeks is relatively easy.
Most importantly, Dr. Jodie believes that cosmetic enhancements like cheek augmentation should leave you looking like yourself, just fresher. She understands facial proportions and will not create a fake or overfilled face.
What Is Involved With Cheek Filler Treatment With Dr. Jodie In Melbourne?
Cheek Fillers are a great alternative to surgical options. Non-surgical Dermal Filler treatment involves using a small needle or cannula (a blunt-ended device to minimise bruising) to inject a non-permanent gel-like sugar. This gel is injected using a technique that adds both volume and shape to your cheek, so your face looks natural and fresh. Prior to treatment, your face is thoroughly cleansed, and Dr. Jodie will apply ice or a small amount of local anaesthetic to numb your cheeks. This ensures you are comfortable throughout the process. With minimal recovery time associated with Cheek Fillers, you can leave Dr. Jodie’s boutique Melbourne clinic and typically get on with your day. Sometimes you may experience some bruising and everyone will experience a small amount of swelling, so if you are concerned time your treatment with your social calendar.
