What Cheek Fillers Are For
Cheek fillers are a treatment for a loss or lack of volume in the cheeks. Volume loss can occur with aging. If cheeks appear sunken or jowly, then fillers can help bring youthful plumpness to the skin.
Some people have naturally thinner-looking cheeks which may benefit from improved contouring using fillers.
Are You a Good Candidate for Cheek Fillers?
Cheek fillers are for those who have sunken cheeks or loose skin around the jaw. If you’re looking for rounder, more shapely cheeks, fillers will help you achieve your desired results.
Before your consultation, you’ll need to answer a few questions about your medical history. It’s important to be open about any medical conditions you may have when answering these questions, as they help your injector determine the best treatment for your specific situation.
Dermal fillers may not be suitable for people with existing medical conditions such as diabetes or blood clotting disorders, which can impact the healing process.
You should inform your injector if you’re taking any medication or if you smoke. Either of these factors can affect blood clotting, which could cause changes to the texture of the face post-treatment.
You should also tell your injector if you have allergies or suffered any allergic reactions to filler treatments in the past.
