Dermal fillers are definitely a hot topic these days, and the experts at Lucere Dermatology & Laser Clinic see thousands of clients every year to help them achieve incredible results. Many people, however, don’t know the extent to which Filler can be used to address many concerns on the face. It’s not just your lips that can be injected!
When expertly injected, Filler can restore volume where it was lost due to aging, or even add volume to facial features where you never had it in the first place. Filler is amazing for achieving facial symmetry, and can also add structure and definition where desired as well. Of all the Filler treatments that can be performed, the one that probably has the most misunderstood reputation is Cheek Filler!
For many clients, when they think of the idea of Cheek Filler, they cringe. Many people feel it’s a treatment that can make them look fake or give them big, “chipmunk cheeks” that no one wants. But the truth is, this is a huge misconception! When expertly injected, Cheek Filler can achieve stunning results that look natural and restore your youth. Believe it or not, when Filler is injected into the cheeks, it can also help with other features on the face that many people don’t consider. Here is a full on guide to all things Cheek Filler!
What is Cheek Filler Made From?
Like all dermal fillers, cheek fillers are made from a hyaluronic acid base, and is meant to be injected by Expert Injectors into strategic areas on the face. Fillers have many benefits depending on your concerns and goals. Hyaluronic acid is a popular anti-aging ingredient that is naturally produced in the skin.
When expertly injected into the skin, filler can be used to restore volume to sagging cheeks, and give the face a much needed lift. Dermal fillers can also fill very deep facial wrinkles that form over time. There are so many brands offered on the market, but at Lucere, we use the best of the best, including Juvederm, Restalyne and Revanesse.
A Few Things to Consider Before Getting Cheek Filler
Before getting right into the reasons you should consider Cheek Filler treatments like Lucere’s Top Model Cheeks, it’s important to understand the anatomy of the region where our Expert Injectors are performing the treatment. If you imagine we were drawing lines of your face, the region of your cheek would be considered the point of your lip up to your ear canal area, the lower edge around the eye socket, and back down from the nostril of your nose to the corner of your mouth again (also known as the nasolabial fold).
The reason this is important is because when you imagine the total area this region covers, you can really begin to understand the many benefits there are to injecting filler strategically in the cheeks. Many people don’t consider the area around the mouth, and how much it can age your appearance over time. And while your Expert Injector can directly inject premium filler product into that area, real experts can achieve results by strategically injecting up above the cheekbone as well.
The most important consideration you should be making is who you allow to inject your fillers! The Expert Injectors at Lucere are leaders in the field of cosmetic injectables, and they undergo rigorous training throughout the year. We promote education and expertise so that our clients always have results they are proud of. Fillers can also create major complications, so safety should always be of utmost importance.
It’s also important to consider the quality of the product your injector is using on you. Only premium, hyaluronic fillers should be used when injecting your face. Your injector should be using trusted brands like Juvederm, Restalyne and Revanesse. These products are high-quality and can be very hydrating. They also lift and fill the cheeks quite effectively.
Now, it isn’t your job to know everything about the products being used. Your Expert Injector will determine the best product and best techniques used to help you achieve your goals. Your job, however, is to find an injector who has a strong command and understanding of facial anatomy, safety, an aesthetic eye and advanced injection techniques. The experts at Lucere are led by Board-Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Zaki Taher, who is a Master Injector, and travels the country on a national scale, to teach other doctors and injectors advanced techniques for achieving incredible results.
Three of the Biggest Reasons to Get Cheek Filler
Every client is unique, and everyone is motivated by different things. That is what makes our job at Lucere so special. Our experts are able to help clients achieve results to make them feel more confident and more beautiful, whatever beautiful means to them. Our mission is to keep clients looking enhanced, rested and beautiful, without looking fake. When you come to Lucere, you can trust that you will Look Good, Not Done!
When it comes to Cheek Filler specifically, there are three big reasons clients seek this treatment. Keep on reading to learn more!
#1 Sagging Cheeks and Lost Volume
Because of the natural aging process along with other factors, our skin begins to produce less and less collagen. Collagen is responsible for keeping our skin firm and youthful. When we begin to lose it, our skin becomes lax and starts to sag over time. This can lead to a very aged, tired-looking appearance.
Once you reach this point, you’ve lost the natural volume and contours of your cheeks, and Lucere’s Cheek Filler treatment can help restore this. Expertly injected cheek filler can bring back volume that has been lost and helps to restore the shape of your face. It also provides a lifting effect that makes you look more youthful, happy and less tired. Cheek filler treatments also help bring back focus on other facial features, such as your eyes, with less emphasis on a sagging lower face.
#2 Deep Nasolabial Folds
Nasolabial Folds, sometimes referred to as smile lines, are the lines that run down from your nose to your mouth. Again, due to the fun process of aging, we naturally begin to lose volume and firmness in this area, which causes a very unwanted drooping effect. Nasolabial folds can be a huge indicator of your age, or worse, age you more than you really are.
While Filler can be directly injected into this area, your Expert Injector’s experience and superior injecting skills can allow them to strategically fill your cheeks to provide a lifting effect that lifts your skin upwards. These advanced injection techniques can smoothen out these folds to provide for a more youthful appearance.
#3 An Enhanced Cheekbone
For many clients, it is not necessarily aged that attracts them to have an expertly injected Cheek Filler treatment. We are seeing more and more of a younger demographic that is motivated by cosmetic enhancements and not exactly aging purposes. Clients in their late 20s and 30s are making choices to have a more defined contour of the cheek and add more dimension and structure to their face.
This age demographic is also motivated by prevention measures. The younger you are when you begin to take advantage of cosmetic injectables, the more you can help your face look younger for a more prolonged period of time.
Will My Cheek Fillers Make Me Look Fake?
Absolutely not! Well, not if you’re treated at Lucere! We cannot speak to the results of other clinics, but at Lucere, our philosophy is Look Good, Not Done, where we want you to look fresh, rested and beautiful without anyone knowing you’ve had any work done. We hope to enhance our clients’ natural beauty and restore confidence in the process. Your injectable journey should never be about making you something you’re not, or changing your features drastically to look over done.
Just remember, anyone can hold a syringe of filler, but that does not mean your results will look good. Worse, your filler can be injected improperly, leading to many dangerous complications and the need for Filler Correction. In order to avoid all this, you should be selecting a reputable clinic like Lucere, which has an immense track record of successful, beautiful results. Your injector should have an aesthetic eye, as well as know advanced injection techniques that can help you achieve your goals and more!
