What are Cheek Fillers?

 
Cheek Fillers, sometime known as Liquid Lift, aim to lift and restore the firm, youthful appearance of the face by injecting fillers into the cheeks, sides of the face and/or the jawline.

 

Who are Cheek Fillers suitable for?

 

Cheek Fillers are suitable for those with mild to moderate cheek laxity who wish to look fresher, and who do not want surgery. The lifting results are subtle but visible.
As we age, volume loss results from hyaluronic acid, collagen and water in the skin. When assessing the cheek, the Ogee Curve is examined - the S-shaped curve from the cheekbone to the mid-cheek hollow. We lose this natural youthful curve as we get older - the midface flattens, the skin sags, and bony landmarks and concavity become prominent.
When performing a “Cheek Lift”, Dr Yeoh adopts a “whole face” approach to achieve natural-looking results. This means that not only are the cheeks addressed, but the temples, chin and jawline may also be treated in order to balance, soften and recontour the face as a whole.

 

Which fillers are used in a Cheek Lift?

 

Fillers used include:

  • Juvederm Voluma XC – a long-lasting HA-based filler that is FDA-approved to add volume to the midface
    or
  • Sculptra – a collagen-stimulating filler that gives genuinely natural-looking results
    or
  • Radiesse – a calcium-based filler that is commonly used for cheek and chin contouring
    or
  • A combination of the above

 

What are the benefits of a Cheek Lift?

 

Lifting the cheeks can improve the nasolabial fold and tear trough areas, without having to treat these area directly. This gives the face a softer and more natural-look and avoids the over-filled face look we have all seen on certain celebrities. 

 

What does a Cheek Filler involve?

 
The treatment takes about 30 minutes. This procedure is performed with local anasthetic to ensure the treatment is as comfortable as possible.  The filler is injected using microcannulas which help to reduce the risk of bruising and swelling. The discomfort is minimal and brief. Results are visible on the same day, with optimal results seen 2 weeks later. Results last up to 12 months after 1 treatment. Those with more severe laxity can choose to repeat the treatment after 6 months. Refresher treatments are recommended every 6 to 12 months depending on aging changes and desired lifting.

 

Price: 

$1,200 to $2,200 depending on the desired look. All prices are subject to 7% GST.
