Cheek filler - FAQs
Do cheek fillers hurt?
Small doses of pain are to be expected due to the needles. However, you should only feel a little pressure on your face. The pain should be completely bearable and should not feel too intense. A small amount of numbing cream can bring the pain down.
How long do cheek fillers take to settle?
Compared to surgical procedures, cheek filler does not take long at all to ultimately settle. Surgical procedures can take up to a year to be visible, whereas cheek fillers should only take up to 2 weeks to completely settle, and results are visible straight away!
Do cheek fillers lift jowls?
Cheek fillers can restore volume in the face and define the jaw and cheekbones. This means that the appearance of droopy jowls can be reduced. This procedure can completely restore volume in the face, allowing your skin to appear smoother and younger.
How long after rhinoplasty can I get cheek fillers?
It is possible for cheek fillers to be carried out straight after a rhinoplasty. However, it is recommended to wait a few weeks before doing so. This allows any swelling to alleviate before carrying out any further treatments. If you have cheek fillers whilst your face is still swollen, the filler may be injected in the wrong areas.
Can I sleep on my side after cheek fillers?
Your skin may still feel sensitive after the procedure. However, it is perfectly safe to sleep on your side after cheek fillers. However, it can be slightly sensitive and painful. We recommend that you sleep on your back the night following your procedure to reduce the pain and swelling.
Do cheek fillers stretch my skin?
Cheek fillers are made to do the opposite of sagging your skin, and therefore, if licensed professionals inject cheek fillers, they should not cause your skin to stretch or sag. This will not happen after the effects have worn off, either. Sagging will only occur if your face is highly overfilled with cheek filler, which we do not recommend.
Do cheek fillers help eye bags?
Dermal fillers are a fantastic way to improve the look of your skin and give you a youthful look. Cheek fillers can smooth out wrinkles, including the creases between your lower eyelid and cheeks, eliminating eye bags. This means your skin will appear younger and smoother.
