Cheek dermal fillers are an increasingly popular aesthetic procedure. Read the article to find out how they can make your cheeks look plumper and younger.

One of the facial imperfections that many individuals wish to correct is that of sagging or hollow cheeks. This is a very common phenomenon, particularly with advancing age, due to the loss of volume and tone of the tissues that make up the cheek area.

The result is a dull, tired and aged appearance, which negatively affects self-perception.

Fortunately, thanks to advances in aesthetic medicine, there are effective and safe solutions for reshaping and enhancing the cheek area.

Among these, cheek dermal fillers, in particular those based on hyaluronic acid (HA), are becoming increasingly popular. In this article we will see exactly how, thanks to these injections, it is possible to restore the natural harmony of facial contours safely and without invasive surgery.

Can dermal filler be used on cheeks?

To understand why dermal fillers are useful for lifting sagging cheeks, it is important to understand what causes this blemish.

Primarily, it is about the physiological ageing process and the consequences this brings. Starting with the decline in the body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid and collagen, the substances that make up the skin’s supporting structure.

This is where the effectiveness of cheek dermal fillers for treating sagging or flattened cheeks comes from.

In the filler, hyaluronic acid, in the form of a transparent jelly, is injected into the area to be treated, literally filling it up.

In addition, HA also stimulates collagen production by the fibroblasts. The skin thus regains its structure and the treatment is able to recreate the natural harmony of facial contours.

It is important to point out that these fillers can be used in all cases where cheeks and cheekbones are to be emphasised, regardless of age. Thus, even when flattened cheeks are a genetic factor or result from weight loss.

Cheek dermal fillers guarantee immediately visible results, which generally last between 6 and 12 months. This is because hyaluronic acid is one of the so-called ‘resorbable’ fillers, precisely because it is completely reabsorbed by the body over time.

As with all injected dermal fillers, its duration is influenced by several factors.

What makes the difference is, first and foremost, the quality of the cheek dermal filler used and the expertise of the aesthetic doctor performing the treatment. His experience will enable him to select a filler with the right level of viscosity, depending on the characteristics of the patient and the area to be treated.

Finally, individual metabolism, the lifestyle of the person undergoing the filler, and certain post-treatment precautions must be taken into account. Such as, for example, knowing how to behave during exposure to the sun.

In any case, cyclic maintenance treatments will be necessary to maintain the results obtained over time.

The cheek dermal filler procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and the patient can return to his or her usual life immediately.

Hyaluronic acid is injected through very fine needles or micro cannulas into the area to be treated, depending on the desired result.

As we have said, the skill of the practitioner in dosing the amount of product correctly and placing it in the strategic points is crucial to achieving a natural and proportionate result.

If the aesthetic doctor uses a quality hyaluronic acid, the risks of side effects are practically non-existent and at most may be limited to a slight post-filler swelling.

In this regard, it is important to say that HA Foliage is an undersized monophasic gel that preserves the characteristics of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in the body.

The fact that it is a very pure hyaluronic acid, free of residual proteins, nucleic acids and solvents, minimises the risks of even common side effects – such as redness or inflammation.

A guarantee of quality then, not only for the patient, but for all operators involved: cosmetic doctors, clinics and distributors.
