We are introducing our first blog post with one of the most significant services that can bring amazing results, and can set the foundation for your facial aesthetics.
When contemplating getting cheek filler there are 3 main reasons why a majority get it:
1. Lost Volume Due to Age:
As we age our cheeks start to loose volume and bone. This can give the under projected and deflated looking cheeks where you are losing contour in your mid face. By adding volume to your cheeks with filler you start the foundation and reshape the face and bringing back that youthful contour.
2. Pronounced Nasolabial Fold: The nasolabial fold, also referred to as smile lines, are the parenthesis-like lines that stretch from our nose to mouth. As we age, we lose volume and firmness, which causes drooping and pronounced nasolabial folds. It’s one of the biggest giveaways of our age.
3. Cosmetic Enhancement: You probably noticed that a lot more people are getting cheek filler who aren’t experiencing major signs of aging — as in people in their early 20s and 30s. This is simply a cosmetic choice to create more dimension in the face, the same way some people want a BBL or a boob job. To each their own!
What is Cheek Filler Exactly?
Dermal filler is an FDA-approved injectable that helps soften fine lines and wrinkles, improve symmetry, and create volume or dimension. Cheek areas include the lower edge of the eye socket, nasolabial folds and a line sweeping up from the corner of the mouth to the ear canal. Filler injected anywhere in this area is considered cheek filler.
Will I look like a chipmunk or over done?
Here at Ever Evolving Life, we take overfilling seriously. We inject on the conservative side and let our follow up appointment allow for touch ups or enhancements after the initial fill. We want to sculpt the cheeks and give you that natural contour and lift back into your face. You can expect to get 1-2 syringes depending on the deficits and your volume loss.
What is it like?
When you arrive we will being with an overview of your treatment with realistic expectations and goals. Our Practitioner will then begin to mark the areas on the face. Once she is done we will inject. The product has lidocaine in it as well for a numbing agent. The procedure itself is about 20-30 minutes and results are seen immediately. Most of our patients do not feel discomfort during the procedure, its fairly painless as far as fillers go, and many describe a "popcorn" sound or feeling while getting it done. Everyones pain threshold is different however.
How long will this last?
Dermal Filler in the cheek can last up to 2 years, however every patient is different and it can last anywhere from 6 months-2 years.
What is the best thing to get in conjunction?
We highly recommend lifting threads in conjunction with cheek fillers to finish off your look! This will give a face rejuvenation and that youthful appearance back into your face.
Lastly, what is the details, downtime, cost etc....
Recovery is very quick, most can return to work or other non strenuous activities the same day. We recommend no exercise for 3 days, for those who run we recommend 1-2 weeks. No manipulation of the area to cause filler migrating, sleeping on your back and making sure that you are following all post op instructions to ensure the best results. We tell our patients that over the counter Arnica pills have been something that patients have used a few days prior to minimize any bruising or swelling that might occur. We use a few different products with our cheek fillers, so cost can vary! The best thing is to come in for a treatment plan and sit down and we can go over goals, expectation and what the rejuvenation process will look like for you!
