The more we age, the more we notice the changes happening to our skin, and with the onset of time, many ageing effects happen that can make us look tired and less youthful. Ageing causes the facial skin to sag, and gravity will pull the skin on the cheek downwards. The fat pad slide off the cheek bone into the face, which gives the effect of sunken cheeks, on and below the cheek bones.
We tend to define an attractive face by its smooth, round contours and high cheekbones. Older skin loses fat and collagen, which causes a change of the facial contour, resulting in hollowed cheeks, sagging skin and wrinkles, leading to an overly aged, drawn appearance.
Once upon a time only a facelift or cheek implants could help with restoring facial volume, but these days a number of effective, non-surgical treatments are available. Ageing leads to loss of definition on the cheeks and jaw-line and you might notice shadows around the cheek bone that’s associated with loss of fat, but dermal filler injections will allow you to subtly control your looks.
The most common areas treated are:
- The cheeks – to add volume and contour the face
- The nasolabial folds – the nose to mouth lines
- The glabella lines – between the eyebrows
- The lips – adding shape and volume
- The chin and jaw-line – adding definition.
Dermal fillers are ideal for smoothing away facial lines and wrinkles, creating fuller lips and shaping facial contours like the cheeks and chin. Dermal fillers work by boosting the skin’s own supply of hyaluronic acid, and these fillers revitalise and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the lines and wrinkles and giving a softer natural look.

Dermal fillers are a soft injectable gel consisting of hyaluronic acid which is tissue-friendly and closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. A topical anaesthetic cream gets applied, if needed, to make treatments more comfortable and we mix a little anaesthetic into the filler, making it a fairly painless procedure.People seek cheek augmentation to correct flatness, asymmetry, or to improve the overall balance of the facial shape. The cheek filler treatment plumps up the apples of the cheeks and sculpts the cheek bones. This instantly restores your face to a youthful appearance.
