A youthful face with full cheeks exudes a healthy and vibrant appearance. However, as the years go by, the volume in our skin diminishes, resulting in less fullness in the cheeks.
The skin starts to sag, and sunken cheeks can lead to the appearance of hollow under-eye areas. This can be frustrating as sunken cheeks make you look older, tired, and less healthy than you actually are. At Ageworth, we restore volume to your cheeks by using temporary hyaluronic acid fillers. These fillers replenish the lost volume in your cheeks, improving both your skin and overall appearance. We take a subtle approach to ensure that the effect of cheek augmentation looks natural.
At Ageworth, a filler treatment for sunken cheeks always begins with a personalized consultation. One of our doctors will discuss your goals, desires, and needs before the treatment. Do you feel bothered by sunken cheeks, or do your cheekbones and jawline also play a role? Together, we may determine that a different treatment would be more suitable for you. By actively listening to you, we can develop the ideal treatment plan. The amount of fillers and the desired outcome will be tailored to factors such as your age and overall appearance, allowing us to reveal the best version of yourself with fillers. If you agree with the treatment plan, the procedure can be scheduled, optionally right after the consultation.
Every injectable treatment starts with thorough cleansing and disinfection of the skin. Following this, the cosmetic doctor marks the injection points based on the treatment plan. The filler is then injected using a needle or a blunt cannula, depending on the area to be treated and your skin type. After the fillers have been injected, the area is gently massaged to ensure proper distribution. You will receive detailed aftercare instructions to help maintain an open and refreshed look for as long as possible. On average, a filler treatment for sunken cheeks takes 45 minutes, including the consultation.
There is no recovery period required after a filler treatment for sunken cheeks. You can resume your daily activities immediately following the procedure. However, you may experience some redness and sensitivity in the treated area due to the injections. In some cases, small bruises may appear, but they usually fade within a few days. During the first week after the treatment, avoid activities such as visiting the gym, using tanning beds, or going to saunas. Wait at least two weeks before seeing a beautician. UV radiation can damage the treated skin more easily, so it’s important to minimize sun exposure and always apply a sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Using a restorative and nourishing scar cream can help the skin recover faster after an injectable treatment.
Duration of Results
The results of a filler treatment are typically visible for six to twelve months. The body naturally breaks down the fillers over time. The duration of the effect varies per individual and depends on factors such as your skin type and lifestyle. If desired, a follow-up treatment can be arranged.
