8 Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Cheek Fillers

Although each season there are different trends that are IN, prominent cheekbones never go out of trend. They are widely considered to be amongst the top of female beauty standards and something most women tend to achieve. There are several methods of improving the visibility of cheekbones and making them highlighted: contouring your face with makeup, fat transfer injections, dermal fillers, or even facial exercises. This blog will focus on providing you with all the information you need about cheekbone enhancement by injecting hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. 

What Are Cheek Fillers?

Cheek fillers are injectable dermal fillers that help you improve the volume of your face and achieve pronounced cheekbones. Apart from enhancing your cheeks, the procedure of non-surgical cheek build-up will help you reduce the number of wrinkles and nasolabial folds in your mid-face area and lift your whole face up. It also helps improve the quality of your skin and makes it appear smooth, fresh, and young. 

What is the Best Filler For Cheek Enhancement?

There are a few different types of dermal fillers used for all types of procedures:

  1. hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane, MaiLi;
  2. polylactic acid fillers, such as Sculptra;
  3. calcium hydroxylapatite, such as Radiesse. 

It is hard to pinpoint the one that can be labeled as “the best”, but according to our knowledge and experience with dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid fillers are the ones we recommend. Here at My Esthetic beauty clinic, we offer a cheekbone build-up procedure with Restylane and MaiLi HA fillers, which never let our patients down. 

Hyaluronic Acid Face Fillers

Two main reasons why people get wrinkles, folds, and saggy skin are the natural process of aging and exposure to UV radiation. As we age, the skin loses its elasticity and its production of collagen stops around the age of 25. Collagen is what gives our skin volume, freshness, and youthful look. Dermal fillers based on hyaluronic acid are perfect for rejuvenating procedures because they stimulate the body’s production of collagen. HA is a substance that retains moisture, therefore it also works as a moisturizer and hydrates the skin.

Compared to the surgical procedure, a non-surgical cheekbone lift with hyaluronic acid injections has a whole lot of benefits and advantages. Many people have a very busy schedule these days and are trying to find a balance between family, work, and time for themselves. Cheek fillers injections will take only 10 minutes away from your time and they will do a lot for your skin.

2. Cost-Efficient 

The cost of cheek fillers will vary depending on the type, quantity, but also source you are buying from. Anyway, they seem to be very cost-efficient and most people can afford treatment. The results are not permanent, but it does not mean that you will need to pay for fillers often. The results can last up to two years, which makes it totally convenient to decide to undergo a cheek build-up procedure. The amount needed for cheeks is 1ml or 2ml, depending on the results you are aiming for.

3. Easy Preparation

Preparation for cheek injections is quite simple and does not require a lot. Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medication a few days prior to your treatment such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin and similar. You should hydrate your body enough prior to the procedure, just as any other day in your life. Eating green vegetables will increase the levels of vitamin K in your body and help reduce the risk of bruising. Make sure you do not schedule an appointment right before an important meeting, birthday party, wedding, or other important events you do not want to go to with possible bruises, redness or swelling. 

4. Painless Procedure

After arriving at your doctors, you will sit down and the doctor will disinfect your face. The filler you chose will be injected into the muscles of your cheeks. The amount of syringes depends on the results you want. The procedure is considered painless and it takes approximately 10 minutes to be done. Please have in mind that only trained professionals can inject the fillers correctly and do not try it at home. 

5. Short Downtime & Recovery

Considering the fact that the cheek lift procedure is non-surgical, it automatically does not require any form of anesthetics and the downtime is minimal. You do not need to stay in the hospital or take time off work, you can schedule an appointment whenever you have as much as 30 minutes spare time. You might rest the day of the procedure and try to avoid physical activity, but the next day you are free to do whatever you like. 

6. Incredible Results

The results of cheek fillers injections are a great temporary solution for increasing the volume your skin has lost due to the process of ageing. The results will be visible shortly after the treatment. With the first treatment, you will probably end up having your results last a bit shorter. The more often you receive the injections in your cheeks, the longer they will last each time. Apart from that fact, it is safe to say that hyaluronic acid fillers can last anywhere from 6 months, and up to 2 years.   

7. Rare Side Effects & Risks

Just as any other procedure, we cannot proclaim anything 100% safe and suitable for everybody. The risks and possible side effects are very rare and do not cause any serious health issues. You might face some redness, swelling and bruises in the following days after your procedure. Apart from skin effects, possible health side effects are slightly increased body temperature, headache and nausea. 

8. Reversible Results

The fillers can last anywhere between a few months and up to 2 years, after which they dissolve because of our natural enzymes. In case you happen to be one in very few people who do not like the results after the cheekbone lift up procedure, dermal fillers are reversible! Hyaluronic acid fillers can be rapidly dissolved by using an enzyme called Hyaluronidase. Since we already have it in our skin, the injection will just provide us a higher concentration of the enzyme and you will look exactly the same as you did before the treatment. This case scenario does not happen so often, considering the amount of patients satisfied with hyaluronic acid cheek fillers.
