Cheek Fillers are injections that raise the volume of the area above and around your cheekbones. This approach provides the illusion of a more defined bone structure and stylized face. By injecting volume under your skin layer, cheek fillers can also remove wrinkles and fine lines. You are going to look younger without changing your overall appearance or who you are.
During the appointment, you’ll recline in a sterilized environment. Your doctor may apply a topical anesthetic to the injection site, or there may be a numbing agent already mixed into the filler itself. The injection process should be simple and will only last 20 minutes or so.
After the injection, you’ll be able to see some of the results immediately. It will take a day or two for the filler to settle into its position on your face.
You can drive after the procedure, and you can even return to work or other appointments immediately after.
During the first few days after an injection, you should avoid sleeping on your cheeks. Try to sleep facing up, flat on your back. You may also want to avoid strenuous exercise until the filler has completely taken its shape, 48 hours after the injection procedure.
