NON SURGICAL CHEEK AUGMENTATION
Cheek augmentation improves facial contours and restores lost volume. Cheek augmentation helps sunken cheeks and facial hollows
Our aging processes begins as we reach the age of mid-20s due to both internal mechanisms such as loss of ‘filler’ components, hyaluronic acid and collagen, and lifestyle factors causing aging signs, wrinkles to appear, along with a loss of volume and radiance. The facial skin hence appears older and saggy with every passing year while altering facial shape and structure.
Cheek augmentation helps sunken cheeks and facial hollows
The cheekbone injections provide a non-invasive and cost effective solution to cheek augmentation. As an alternative to its surgical counterpart, cheek augmentation can also be performed using fillers for restoration of volume loss due to aging or adding definition.
At Klinik Dr Inder we use dermal fillers or thread lifting at the cheekbone area. With the several varieties of cheek fillers being available in the market, each of its types provides different effects as well as their longevity which may also vary.
Dermal fillers are soft tissue fillers made of products such as collagen, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyl apatite that rejuvenate facial skin by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions, enhancing lips and replacing soft-tissue volume loss through facial injections.
We use a range of premium dermal fillers products that can help you achieve the desired result. It will depend on the area being treated as to which product our most experienced Dr Inder would recommend as the most suitable. Facial fillers can plump up your skin, smooth wrinkles and fill out deep lines by replacing the collagen lost due to natural ageing or skin damage.
Premium dermal fillers Juvederm® and Restylane® are injected in small controlled doses just under the surface of skin of the area to be treated. This fills out the sunken areas and lines to give a smoother, firmer and more refreshed appearance. Depending on the type of dermal filler used, results can last from 12 to 24 months.

Afterwards, there might be a small amount of swelling which will quickly subside. Depending on the area treated, it usually takes no longer than 30 minutes and you can leave the clinic as soon as you are ready to do so.
No recovery time is required after dermal filler treatment and you can return to day to day activities straight away. You may experience some slight swelling or bruising to the area being injected and typically does’nt last longer than 48 hours. Our doctor will discuss your recovery and what to expect when you attend your appointment
Small amounts of dermal filler are injected directly into the skin using an ultrafine needle. After cleansing the area to be treated, a numbing cream will be applied. This ensures the injections administered by the qualified doctor or nurse will only cause minor discomfort.
The gel administered helps to plump up the skin to smooth out lines and wrinkles. If the lips or facial contours are being treated, the filler adds volume, restores shape and gives a fuller, fresher appearance.
