Sitting in the centre, your cheeks act as the focal point of your face. However, when ageing affects the way your cheeks look, it can change the whole structure of your face.

At MySkyn, we are seeing more patients coming to us asking for cheek fillers in Bradford. Why? Because they are looking to add more fullness, definition and a youthful glow to their cheeks. As experts in dermal filler treatments, our team can help you achieve natural looking results.

But what do cheek fillers do? And what’s it like having filler treatment? We breakdown the answers for you.

How can cheek fillers help?

As we age, we start to lose supportive fat, collagen and elastin in our face. When this happens in our cheeks it causes them to become sunken, start to sag or even droop. This is because the skin is more fragile and less hydrated than before. 

But it’s not just age that impacts our skin. Weight loss, stress, poor diet and other lifestyle factors can also have an adverse effect on how our skin looks and feels. 

Cheek fillers help to restore lost moisture in the skin. They help to plump sunken features and give them more definition. After your filler treatment, you will look rejuvenated and your face will have more balance in its features and proportions. 

Most fillers include hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is loved by beauty experts around the world. It is a key ingredient in dermal fillers and in some beauty treatments. And why do beauty experts love it so much? Well, it’s mostly due to its ability to hydrate your skin from the inside out. 

As a substance naturally found in our skin, hyaluronic acid helps our skin to lock in moisture. This is what keeps our skin looking healthy and strong.  Over time, hyaluronic acid can also help to stimulate collagen production. As a result, you will see smoother skin and a reduction in unwanted lines and wrinkles. 

How do cheek fillers change your face?

If you find the right professional to do your cheek filler treatment, the results should not change your face, only enhance it. 

Dermal filler injections help to raise the volume in the area above and around your cheek bones. They can help give you a more defined bone structure. Fillers can also plump and lift sagging skin around your cheeks, mouth and lower face.

But you don’t need to look like you’ve had work done

When you choose an expert in facial aesthetic treatments, you can look refreshed without looking like you have been to the doctor’s office.

You can trust in the expertise of our team at MySkyn, which includes Dr Qureshi, who is an experienced surgical and aesthetic doctor. She understands the anatomy of the face and where to inject safely. This ensures you get the best results for you and that they look natural. 

We also provide a bespoke treatment plan for each patient based on their skin concerns and what will work for them. You will get advice on the amount of cheek filler you need and whether additional treatments will help boost your results. 

What to expect from cheek filler treatment

Your journey will start with a full consultation with Dr Qureshi at our clinic in Bradford. This is an opportunity for us to look at your facial structure and decide what treatments will help you get the results you are looking for. 

It’s also a chance for you to ask any questions you have about cheek fillers. In the end, we want you to feel comfortable and informed about any decisions you make. 

Cheek fillers are a relatively painless treatment. However, if you have sensitive skin or are nervous about injections, we do provide a numbing cream. This is applied to your cheeks before starting treatment. 

Depending on what Dr Qureshi discusses with you at your consultation, she may inject fillers into several areas of your cheeks to get the best results. To add definition, injections of dermal filler may go above the cheekbones. To restore volume loss or reduce nasolabial lines, fillers can be injected into the fat pads below your cheek edge. 

You can expect your cheek filler treatment to last around 30 minutes. you will start to see results after results within the first two days after treatment. However, it will take around two weeks for the fillers to fully settle.
