What does cheek filler do?

Cheek filler is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment designed to enhance the fullness and definition of your cheeks.
Cheek filler is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment designed to enhance the fullness and definition of your cheeks. During this procedure, a healthcare provider administers safe dermal fillers in the areas around and above your cheekbones. You can also get your filler done at We Are Beauty Clinic.

There are various types of cheek fillers available, and your provider will assess your specific goals to determine the most suitable option for you.

Typically, cheek filler injections take less than thirty minutes to complete. The duration of results varies depending on the type of filler used, with some lasting a year or longer. However, like any cosmetic procedure, cheek filler injections carry potential risks, such as bleeding and bruising.

Consider cheek filler if you aim to:

- Define your cheekbones;
- Enhance the volume of your cheeks;
- Achieve a more youthful appearance;
- Fill in wrinkles;
- Smooth out lines.

Does cheek filler hurt?

Some patients describe the sensation during a procedure like “crunching” under the skin, but generally specialists say that their patients don't experience pain during this treatment. At the We Are Beauty Clinic we provide topical numbing beforehand, and many filler products now contain lidocaine, a numbing agent, in their formulation.

Are cheek fillers dangerous?

The decision to undergo filler treatments is deeply personal. You'll need to weigh whether the benefits align with your goals and if you find the risks and potential complications acceptable.

Our doctor at We Are Beauty Clinic will provide thorough explanations of any risks involved.You'll need to sign consent forms, ensuring your full understanding of the procedure, risks, and potential complications.

While severe complications from dermal fillers are rare, they can include:

- Asymmetry;
- Bleeding or bruising at the injection spot;
- Skin damage leading to wounds or scarring;
- Infection;
- Lumps or palpable filler under the skin;
- Skin necrosis (loss of skin due to blood flow disruption);
- Skin rash, redness, or swelling;
- Under- or over-correction of wrinkles;
- In very rare cases, filler may inadvertently enter blood vessels, potentially blocking blood flow and causing various complications, such as skin loss or vision impairment.

These risks, along with others, will be thoroughly discussed before you provide consent.

It's crucial to address all your questions and concerns directly with your doctor, particularly regarding complications requiring urgent attention. While positive outcomes are anticipated, there's no guarantee of complete satisfaction. Given the potential for significant complications, it's essential to entrust your care to a board-certified doctor who understands the risks fully and knows how to manage any complications that may occur.

In some cases, achieving optimal results may require multiple procedures, as most fillers gradually dissolve over time. Regular intervals of reinjection may help you to maintain your desired result.
