Cheek fillers Gateshead
Are you self-conscious about your cheekbones? You may be considering cheek fillers.
Cheek fillers are injections that will raise the volume of the area around your cheekbones. Providing the illusion of more defined bone structure. By injecting volume under your skin layer, cheek fillers can also smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
Cheek fillers can last anywhere from 18 months to 2 years before results are no longer noticeable. The dermal filler will eventually dissolve and metabolise into your skin tissue.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT cheek FILLERS
WHAT IS CHEEK AUGMENTATION?
Glowing, contoured, high cheekbones are a feature many women find sexy and beautiful.
As we age the bone and tissues of the face lose volume. Our high cheekbones become less defined, and we are left with a little bit of a droop. Over time, the loss of Hyaluronic Acid within the skin means we lose some of the youthful elasticity of our cheeks, which makes them appear a bit saggy. The fat pads on our cheeks begin to slide down and create more pressure on our nasolabial fold; the line that connects the tip of your nose to the corner of your lips. This makes the fold more pronounced.
Adding dermal fillers deep within the skin restores
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PERMANENT AND RESORBABLE FILLERS?
Permanent fillers last longer than resorbable fillers in your skin. Their effect is irreversible. Consequently, removing the implant or correcting the result becomes very difficult. In addition, permanent fillers can cause delayed hyper-sensitivity.
It is highly advisable to use resorbable fillers for safer results.
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural skin component. It acts like a sponge and retains large quantities of water to keep the skin plumped and soft. In the fillers syringes, HA comes in the form of a gel. We lose 50 % of our hyaluronic acid between the age of 40 and 50. The skin becomes dry, thin and fragile.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FILLERS AND BOTOX?
Fillers and botulinum toxin are both used to treat wrinkles. However, their mode of action is completely different.
Botulinum toxin is injected into the muscle. It causes local paralysis and thus reduces expression lines. It is a preventive method.
HA fillers are gels, injected under the skin to directly fill the wrinkles and smoothen skin surface. It is a corrective method.
WHAT ARE THE CONTRAINDICATIONS?
HA injections are contra-indicated and must not be used:
*In combination with peeling, laser or ultrasound-based treatments.
*If the patient has cutaneous disorders, inflammation or infection at the treatment site or near to this site.
*In the case of patients having a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid, with a history of severe allergy or anaphylactic shock.
*Hypersensitivity to lidocaine and/or amide local anaesthetic agents.
*Patients with autoimmune diseases.
*In pregnancy, breast-feeding mothers, or in children.
WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE BEFORE AND AFTER TREATMENT ?
You should inform your doctor of all your medical and disease history and your current and past drugs and treatments.
BEFORE the injection:
It is strongly proposed to avoid taking aspirin, anti-coagulants and anti-inflammatory drugs for a week prior to the procedure. Refer to your practitioner before interrupting any chronic treatment.
AFTER the injection:
Avoid drinking alcohol, taking a plane or doing any kind of sports for a period of 72 hours
WHEN CAN I SEE THE DEFINITIVE RESULTS OF THE INJECTION?
