"Cheek fillers" is an expression which encompasses a whole range of products and substances.
In layman's terms, it is a cosmetic treatment that is designed to add volume, contour the face and rejuvenate.
Dermal fillers help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
They are also used to re-introduce structure and volume.
Dark Eye Circles / Tear Trough
Under eye (tear trough) fillers are soft gels containing hyaluronic acid, which is a natural bio-degradable compound found in your connective tissues.
Under eye dermal fillers improves the appearance of dark eye circles due to sunken eyes by volumising the area and stretching the skin so that the area does not appear hollow. This reduces dark shadows by plumping up the sunken areas around the eyes. Sunken eyes are also known as tear troughs.
Your temples are situated at each side of your head, above the cheek bones and at the tail of the brow bone. As we age, our skin naturally begins to lose elasticity, affecting all areas of our face including the temples.
Dermal fillers are created with Hyaluronic Acid, a substance which can be found within the skin. When injected, the filler sits smoothly beneath the skin and the results will look more natural.
Getting chin fillers is one of the ways to instantly achieve an improved face profile and proportions, giving the face a more pronounced V-shape.
Such an effect is achieved by injecting the chin with Hyaluronic Acid Fillers. Careful placement of chin fillers can also project the chin forward to give the face a more dynamic look.
Forehead augmentation usually means going under the knife. However in recent years, the development of medical aesthetics has made it possible to do forehead augmentation – non-surgically.
While dermal fillers may not be permanent or as dramatic as surgery, it is a better and safer choice for people who are unsure about undergoing surgery. All it takes is just a simple injection and the outcome will immediately be seen. Most people even notice a brow lift and the eyes looking less tired.
The results are natural and lasts at least 12 months. A combination with botulinum toxin will give an even longer results.
Laugh Lines / Nasolabial Folds
For most of us, smile lines – also known as nasolabial folds – are nothing to smile about. These lines and creases run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth, and are the result of the loss of facial volume and skin elasticity as we age. These nasolabial folds can make you look older, tired or unhappy – even though you feel youthful on the inside.
Fillers can either be injected into the cheeks to lift the mid face, hence reducing the appearance of the nasolabial folds or they can be injected directly into the nasolabial folds, giving them a noticeable lift and volume replacement. The placement of fillers into the laugh lines not only reduces the appearance of the folds but also prevents further formation of wrinkles.
Jowls / Marionette Lines
A little known area of the face that can make a big impact on the way we look is the pre-jowl fold area, or the pre-jowl fold sulcus, which is the areas on either side of our chin. Facial volume loss associated with the aging process results in sagging of the skin in other facial areas, and leaves the pre-jowl fold area hollow
Even if you have never heard of marionette lines, you probably know what they are. These lines that run straight downwards from the corners of the mouth can make you look unhappy. Marionette lines form as facial volume begins to deplete and deeper creases begin to form below the mouth.
For lines around the mouth, we most often use dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that restore lost volume in the face, stimulate collagen production, and attract moisture to the treatment area. This fills in the wrinkles and folds while improving skin texture and flexibility.
