 Fill sagging cheeks and lost volume with a cheek filler treatment

The more we age, the more we notice the changes happening to our skin, and with the onset of time, many ageing effects happen that can make us look tired and less youthful. Ageing causes the facial skin to sag, and gravity will pull the skin on the cheek downwards. The fat pad slide off the cheek bone into the face, which gives the effect of sunken cheeks, on and below the cheek bones.

We tend to define an attractive face by its smooth, round contours and high cheekbones. Older skin loses fat and collagen, which causes a change of the facial contour, resulting in hollowed cheeks, sagging skin and wrinkles, leading to an overly aged, drawn appearance.

Once upon a time only a facelift or cheek implants could help with restoring facial volume, but these days a number of effective, non-surgical treatments are available. Ageing leads to loss of definition on the cheeks and jaw-line and you might notice shadows around the cheek bone that's associated with loss of fat, but dermal filler injections will allow you to subtly control your looks.

The most common areas treated are:

  • The cheeks - to add volume and contour the face
  • The nasolabial folds - the nose to mouth lines
  • The glabella lines - between the eyebrows
  • The lips - adding shape and volume
  • The chin and jaw-line - adding definition

Dermal fillers are ideal for smoothing away facial lines and wrinkles, creating fuller lips and shaping facial contours like the cheeks and chin. Dermal fillers work by boosting the skin's own supply of hyaluronic acid, and these fillers revitalise and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the lines and wrinkles and giving a softer natural look.

  • Procedure Time - 20 - 30 Minutes
  • Downtime - 1 Day
  • Back To Work - Next Day
  • Duration Of Results - 9 - 12 Months
  • Anaesthetic - Local
  • Results Seen - Immediate

Dermal fillers are a soft injectable gel consisting of hyaluronic acid which is tissue-friendly and closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. A topical anaesthetic cream gets applied, if needed, to make treatments more comfortable and we mix a little anaesthetic into the filler, making it a fairly painless procedure.

People seek cheek augmentation to correct flatness, asymmetry, or to improve the overall balance of the facial shape. The cheek filler treatment plumps up the apples of the cheeks and sculpts the cheek bones. This instantly restores your face to a youthful appearance.

Although both treatments involve injections, we shouldn't confuse dermal fillers with botox. Both get injected into the face, but where botox is used to stop muscle movement which results in wrinkles, we use fillers to add volume to the face. This involves placing the fillers in strategic places to lift the cheeks and jowls, give volume to the lips and fill deep lines. This treatment can improve your looks, enhance your profile and leave your face with a natural expression.

Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment, used to plump up depressions in the skin. The main reason for depressions in the skin are wrinkles, lines and loss of volume caused by the ageing process. As we age, it is well-known that the skin loses its smoothness, and this happens because the body's natural levels of collagen reduce with age. This causes the skin to lose its shape and firmness, and this is a problem that dermal fillers can rectify.

Examples of the use of dermal fillers:

  • Marionette lines - these lines run from the corners of the mouth, down towards the chin, causing deep creases which lead to jowls or a poorly defined jaw line. These are often a result of volume loss in the upper and mid face, combined with the effects of gravity.
  • Nasolabial lines - these are the deep lines from the nose to the mouth, where deep creasing can occur. Often these are a result of volume loss in the cheeks and temples.
  • Cheek Augmentation - loss of volume in the cheeks flattens the mid face. Dermal fillers are an effective treatment that instantly adds volume to cheeks, giving an immediately more youthful appearance.
  • Forehead wrinkles - Frown lines are the vertical lines between the eyebrows, and they are one of the most common signs of ageing. Dermal fillers are perfect for softening and minimizing the very deep lines which are visible, even when your forehead is at rest.
  • Tear troughs - this treatment gives a natural filled out appearance, correcting the hollows beneath the eyes.
  • Lip enhancement - dermal fillers will give your lips better definition, reduce lipstick bleed and will enhance thin, ageing or asymmetrical lips. Filler treatment is a perfect solution to give you fuller, healthier looking lips, reducing smoker's lines and lifting mouth corners.

Dermal fillers work by plumping up the treated area and making it level with the rest of the skin, filling out any depressed areas such as wrinkles or sunken cheeks. A very fine needle injects the filler into the treatment area, which adds more structure and firmness to the face. Most people report only a slight discomfort when the dermal fillers get injected, so the treatment usually doesn't require an anaesthetic. After treatment, you can go straight back to your normal activities. The results are usually seen instantly and will last for around six to eight months.


  • A non-invasive treatment with little downtime, so you can return to normal activities straight away.
  • Reduction of lines and wrinkles to give a more youthful looking appearance.
