Cheekbone fillers before and after Read the article to find out what cheekbone filler is for, how it is done and what changes after the treatment.

High, voluminous cheekbones are one of the most popular aesthetic trends of our times. Indeed, regardless of gender and age, pronounced cheekbones are definitely part of the new beauty canons. Precisely for this reason, cheekbone fillers are among the most popular aesthetic medicine treatments right now.

If older people need to plump up sagging cheekbones, younger people do fillers to add volume, reshape their face and give a more toned and seductive appearance to a hollowed-out face, perhaps as a result of weight loss.

Among the most widely used injections, there is certainly hyaluronic acid, which, as a molecule naturally present in our body, is extremely safe and effective.

What changes between before and after a cheekbone filler? We will find out in this article, where we will see:

Cheekbone fillers, differences between before and after treatment

The difference between before and after cheekbone fillers is obvious and immediate.

As cheekbones are one of the most prominent and exposed areas of the face, they are also one of the most prone to skin ageing. With the passage of time, they tend to become hollowed out and lose the structure that gives the face a youthful, fresh appearance.

Beyond any age-related issue, some people have poorly pronounced cheekbones, or features less prominent than they would like. For instance, thin people could have an extremely hollowed out face.

Through fillers, cheekbones are literally filled in where needed, appearing visibly higher and plumper.

As we have said concerning the properties and benefits of hyaluronic acid on the face, this molecule is among the most widely used filler substances for cheekbone fillers.

Its being a substance naturally present in the body makes it absolutely safe, with a very low risk of side effects.

What is cheekbone filler used for

Cheekbone filler is a corrective aesthetic treatment used to restore lost volume or to give ‘flat’ cheekbones new volume. The whole aesthetics and harmony of the face will benefit from this treatment.

The choice of hyaluronic acid is linked to the latest trends in aesthetic medicine, based on a new concept of natural beauty. Compared to other substances and techniques, hyaluronic acid fillers allow cheekbones to be plumped and lifted without creating an unsightly plastic effect.

From this point of view, for a satisfactory result of the cheekbone filler treatment, it is essential to resort only to doctors specialised in aesthetic medicine, who will know how to choose the best hyaluronic acid filler and apply it correctly.

Only a high-quality filler, administered by an experienced and competent hand, will achieve the desired result and avoid unpleasant cosmetic accidents and side effects.

How cheekbones fillers work

Highly cross-linked, high-density hyaluronic acid is generally used for cheekbone fillers, for its volumetric action.

Before proceeding with treatment, the specialist will assess the specific situation for each patient, their age and weight, in order to determine the exact amount to be injected.

The filler is injected into the deep dermis through very fine needles or through microcannulas without a tip, which, in addition to being less traumatic for the skin, allow the product to be distributed more evenly through a single access hole.

Once hyaluronic acid has been injected, the doctor will distribute and shape it by hand until the desired result is achieved.

The procedure is carried out on an outpatient basis and, once the quality of the product used and the professionalism of the doctor have been ascertained, the risks of contraindications and side effects of hyaluronic acid are low. Any redness and bruising will mostly disappear spontaneously within a few days.

The difference on cheekbones before and after the filler will be immediately visible.

How long cheekbone fillers last

First of all, we should remind you that hyaluronic acid fillers are among the so-called biological or resorbable fillers. Since it is a substance naturally present in our bodies, it will gradually be reabsorbed by it.

This not only makes this type of filler safe and well-tolerated, but also has the advantage that it can be adjusted if necessary, if the first result is not exactly as desired, and any mistakes can be corrected.

Having said that, the duration of cheekbone fillers, as in other facial areas, can vary from patient to patient, it varies, approximately between 9 and 11 months. After that, it will be necessary to undergo a new treatment to maintain the results.

There are, however, some good behavioural rules to remember, at least in the following 48/72 hours, in order to prolong the life of the filler as much as possible, namely:

  1. Avoid smoking and alcohol;
  2. Avoid intense physical activity;
  3. Do not apply make-up to the treated area;
  4. Avoid exposure to the sun;
  5. Do not take fluidifying drugs (if possible);
  6. Avoid touching the treated area with your hands unless they are perfectly clean, to prevent the risk of infection.

Lastly, in order to maximise and preserve the change between before and after the application of the cheekbone filler, you should follow any other indications provided by the aesthetic physician, on possible maintenance rules.

How to sleep after cheekbone fillers

One last precaution to avoid impairing the result of the filler is to sleep in a supine position with the head slightly elevated by a few pillows the night after the treatment. This will help reduce post-filler swelling.

So, in conclusion, from what we have seen, hyaluronic acid fillers are an effective and safe solution to give cheekbones a new, seductive plumpness.

How to sleep after cheekbone fillers

The difference between before and after applying the cheekbone filler will be immediately visible, and the effect will stabilise within about fifteen days.

As we have repeatedly said, the first and fundamental recommendation is to only and exclusively consult a doctor specialised in aesthetic medicine, who will be able to choose the best filler for the patient and apply it correctly. Subject to this condition and following the specialist’s instructions correctly, you can significantly improve the appearance of your face without altering it and without risk.
