Cheek Injections (Cheek Fillers) Melbourne & Ballarat

Cheek fillers are a non-invasive procedure that men and women choose to restore the natural volume to the cheeks and to enjoy a youthful appearance. Over time, our age begins to show on our face, whether this is through wrinkles or sunken and tired features. In particular, the skin loses its natural elasticity through a decrease in natural collagen production.

But, cheek injections can be used as an anti-aging treatment that will allow you to rejuvenate your appearance and enjoy plump and youthful cheeks again. In addition, cheek fillers can help to highlight the cheekbones. At Clinica Lase, we offer professional cheek fillers treatment in Melbourne. There is minimal downtime and the treatment does not last long, which means that cheek injections appeal to a variety of patients.

What Can I Expect During Cheek Filler Treatment?

During your cheek filler treatment, there will be a series of injections into the skin in the cheeks. This will be done with a fine needle and should only last around 30 to 40 minutes. In addition, a professional will massage the cheeks to make sure that the cheek filler is evenly spread to create a natural appearance. The cheek filler will hydrate and plump the cheeks, using natural sugars that are already in the body so that they are compatible.

Do Cheek Injections Hurt?

Cheek fillers is a treatment that is well tolerated by patients and there is no pain involved in the procedure. The cheek injections are delivered with a small needle, which means that any discomfort is minimised. In addition, a local anaesthetic can be used prior to treatment and a cream can be used to numb the skin for those that do not like injections.

What Can I Expect after Cheek Filler Treatment?

It is normal to experience some reddening of the skin after having cheek injections. In addition, there can be some minor swelling and some bruising. This should not worry you and will resolve by itself over a number of days. The area can be tender, but again this will subside within a few hours of treatment.

You can expect to see the results of cheek filler treatment straight away, but the final results of cheek injections can be revealed around two to four weeks after the procedure. The cheeks should appear plump and volumized. The results can last up to two years before any top-up treatments are needed, depending on the cheek filler that is used.

Is there any Downtime associated with Cheek Injections?

There is no downtime associated with cheek filler treatment. This means that patients can leave the clinic as soon as they are ready. Most people do not take any time off work and often cheek injections are referred to as a ‘lunchtime treatment’. You can resume your daily routine right after the procedure. If you have some redness or swelling around the injection site, you may feel more comfortable taking the day off work, but this is not required and it is your decision. You can also hide these after effects with makeup.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for Cheek Filler?

Cheek injections is a non-invasive treatment that is suitable for men and women who are looking to beat the signs of aging and restore the natural volume of the cheeks. It can also be a helpful procedure if you have fine lines and wrinkles over the cheeks. In addition, cheek injections can be combined with other treatments to rejuvenate the whole face.
