Cheek Fillers

How can cheek fillers help me?

Lip rejuvenation using fillers, most commonly HA, is a common procedure which requires professional expertise in order to get the best possible result. Some people are born with thin, asymmetrical, or different shaped lips which may have caused them to feel insecure, or attempt to overuse lipsticks to correct certain deficits.

Our filler treatments help provide the right volume and defined lips providing a feminine facial appearance.

With time, UV damage, hereditary factors, smoking contribute to volume loss of the lips, as well as perioral rhytides (smokers lines) and prominence of mentolabial folds (lines between the chin and lips). Early intervention offers a better-end result, and having professional medical care can help treat and manage these issues.

Do I need lip fillers?

Lips fillers are there to help if you are currently unhappy with the size, shape, borders,  or symmetry of your lips. Lip fillers are also great when it comes to keep the lips well hydrated which many people tend to struggle with, especially in the winter season. The fillers when properly injected, will help you achieve the look that you have always found desirable.  No more struggling with dry lips, adding lipstick outside your borders to produce the desired effect or shying your lips away from others.

How many mls are needed?

Generally, 1ml is a good start. There are so many factors that contribute towards the volume and the type of filler used and it is quite important to thoroughly assess the face in order to provide the ideal lip ratios. These factors include but are not limited to:

  • Desired outcome
  • Size of the current lips
  • Enhancement of vermilion border
  • Previous filler
  • Hydration status and skin quality 

Cheek fillers can be placed in larger volumes to help minimise volume loss associated with aging, to help enhance ones natural cheek bones,

With the use of world renowned premium grade TGA approved products, facial fillers help too:

    Pain Relief

    Most practitioners and patients prefer to have some form of pain relief. There are multiple options available for your convenience;

    • Local anaesthesia using a nerve block is a fantastic method to achieve almost no pain at all, however this does vary based on individual. This is quite similar and sometimes used interchangeably with the term dental block. Most dermal fillers also contain local anaesthesia and hence any pain experienced during treatment generally tends to improve throughout
    • Laughing gas (also known as happy gas or Nitros oxide) is also available.
    • Applying ice to the area prior to treatment can also help reduce the pain, and applying ice after the procedure also helps reduce the swelling.

    After the pain relief is applied, cleaning agents to minimise infection risk, such as alcohol swabs or Chlorhexidine is applied to the area. Dermal fillers are applied by injecting the product and inserting accordingly at different layers beneath the skin

    Right After The Procedure

    After treatment Some bruising, redness and swelling maybe present and self resolve over the next few days. Generally the swelling tends to provide a slightly enhanced effect due to the increased volume associated with this, which tends to disappear eventuate into a more natural appearance. Some patients tend to enjoy the swelling effect, however others may prefer the more natural effect.

    After Care Instructions

    No make up for 6 hours after.

    No intense exercise for 24 hrs

    No alcohol for 24 hrs

    No exposure to high temperature environments for 7 days, such as spa’s, sauna etc

    Treatment Risks

    Risks and side effects of Dermal fillers

    Bruising

    Swelling in the injection region

    Redness

    Asymmetry. One side may have a better outcome than the other. This is often due to the fact that faces have a great degree of asymmetry and people often tend to focus more on their face after treatment where these asymmetries become more obvious to the individuals. With many patients, one side of the face tends to be healthier and respond better to treatment providing more structural support and better outcome.

    Infection; rare but is always a possibility when there is any opening of the skin

    Necrosis (cells death due to obstruction of a blood vessel): Rare complication. This may potentially lead to worse outcomes.

    Blindness is an extremely rare outcome.
