You’re likely familiar with lip fillers by now, which are becoming increasingly popular thanks to celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian. Although the lips are the feature that gets the most injections, you might not realize that cheek fillers or cheek sculpting are just as popular among celebrities because of the dramatic effects they can provide. Killer cheekbones? Why not?
Cheek fillers are quickly becoming increasingly popular due to the fact that they cause minimal to no discomfort, deliver stunning effects, and require almost no recovery time. You can go to work the next day with hardly a backward glance, even if there might be a tiny bit of soreness or bruising at the injection sites. (or just a few glances at your now flawlessly contoured cheekbones!) Sculpted and contoured cheeks can be achieved with the help of cheek fillers without the need for invasive surgical procedures or even thick layers of makeup.
But Why Would I Want Filler in My Cheeks?
Great question! As we become older, we naturally experience a loss of volume in our cheeks, which can give us the appearance of having “hollowed” cheeks. This occurs because as we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which causes the plump cheeks we had in our youth to begin to lose volume and become flat. Fillers have the potential to help restore lost volume and the fresh, youthful appearance that comes with having full cheeks.
For those who aren’t too concerned about volume loss as a result of aging but would like to heighten and contour their low or hardly visible cheekbones, fillers and cheek sculpting is an excellent option. There is an immediate lifting and slimming effect on your face when you put more volume in your cheeks. This is something that some people refer to as the “inverted V.”
No more heavy foundation, and you can finally get rid of that contour kit!
Cheek sculpting can give your cheekbones a dramatic lift in height, or it can be used to smooth out the angles on your face for a more symmetrical appearance that can harmonize your physical traits.
What Makes “High Cheekbones” More Desirable Than Low Cheekbones?
The malar bones, which sit beneath our eyes, are what give your cheekbones their shape. High cheekbones signify that your malar bones are closer to your eyes than the center of your face, near the bottom of your nose, and thus appear more prominent. High or low cheekbones do not tell us anything about your personality; they are only a cultural preference at this time in Western society. Despite the fact that we as individuals cannot influence the standards of beauty, dermal fillers allow us to effortlessly adjust and enhance the features we were born with to feel our best.
What Are the Benefits of Cheek Fillers?
When you’re younger, enhancing your cheekbones with volume can assist balance different face forms and give you a more contoured appearance. Using cheek fillers and cheek sculpting can also improve the overall appearance of your face by giving volume and structure to create prominent cheekbones, which are almost universally regarded as attractive.
As we get older, we experience a gradual loss of volume in our faces. When someone has lost volume in their face, one of the first places they may see the impact is in the cheek area. Dermal fillers or cheek sculpting can enhance the volume and contour of these areas, in addition to helping to improve the skin’s overall texture.
In addition, the look of the lower face can be improved using cheek fillers. The presence of nasolabial lines, which run from the base of your nose to the side of your lip, is one of the most prevalent aesthetic issues people have. These appear as a result of the volume of the face shifting forward and downward with aging. These lines, unfortunately, can make people appear older and exhausted. Before, injectors would apply all of the filler directly to these lines in order to make them appear less noticeable (and we still do in some cases). However, the most effective method for correcting these lines is to add a structured dermal filler in the area of the cheek and cheekbones, which results in a lifted appearance. This is the most effective method. We can utilize dermal fillers to “pin-up” the cheekbones, which lessens the nasolabial lines and creates a more youthful appearance.
How Long Do Cheek Fillers Last?
Because they are placed in a region of the face that is less active than the lips, cheek fillers have the potential to last a little bit longer than lip injections do. In the area of the cheekbones, it can take anywhere from 12 to 14 months for the filler to be totally reabsorbed by the body. And the more frequently you “top up” your fillers, the better the effects tend to last, with some patients experiencing results that last up to two years.
Even if the effects of cheek filler are long-lasting, it is simple to remove the filler if you are not happy with the results or if you decide to go in a different direction. You will only need to make one trip back to the clinic in order to have a substance known as hyaluronidase injected into the area where the filler was placed. This will cause the filler to disappear quickly. Therefore, there is no reason for you to be concerned about being obligated to continue using something you dislike.
How Many Fillers Would I Need to Get the Results That I Want?
It’s possible that all you need is one syringe to get the results you’re looking for, but not everyone needs that much. One syringe of dermal filler is typically sufficient for giving the cheekbones a natural-looking enhancement that is just on the modest side. On the other hand, if you want to significantly increase the fullness of your cheeks, you might require two or even three of them. There is a price tag associated with getting the stunning effects that can be achieved with cheek fillers. Fortunately, the effects on the cheeks continue to be visible for a longer period of time than those at other injection sites.
What Should I Expect From My Cheek Sculpting Treatment?
The time it takes for a cheek sculpting procedure is between 30 and 40 minutes. At Isla Aesthetics, our trained medical professionals will assess your face in order to determine the optimal areas for injections. It is of the utmost importance to pick an injector who not only adheres to the greatest possible health and safety requirements but also has an understanding of the proportions of the face and will be able to improve your features in a way that appears to be entirely natural.
