Turn back the clock and redefine your natural features with cheek enhancement. Cheek fillers in Kelowna are a great alternative for patients who desire facial rejuvenation without the need for surgery and they are beneficial to many of our patients.
What Are Cheek Fillers in Kelowna?
Cheek fillers in Kelowna are a type of dermal filler used to revolumize, reflate hollow cheeks and redefine the cheekbones for a more youthful appearance. What makes cheek fillers different than other fillers are their texture and consistency. For example, filler for the lips or under-eyes will have a thin, flexible consistency, while cheek filler is denser and can support the skin to add volume and structure.
Types of Cheek Fillers in Kelowna
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers use a purified form of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. Hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules in the skin for a plumping and moisturizing effect that maintains the skin’s elasticity and volume. We offer hyaluronic acid cheek fillers from safe and trusted brands like Juvéderm, Teosyal, and Belotero.
Radiesse is a different type of cheek filler that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, proteins in the skin that gives it stability, structure and tightness. As we age, collagen and elastin production naturally slows down, leading to volume loss, sagging skin and wrinkles. Radiesse uses calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) to give the skin an immediate lift with gradual tone and texture improvements to maintain your youthful appearance.
Kelowna Cheek Fillers Benefits
Cheek fillers in Kelowna have many benefits for patients who are bothered by signs of aging. If you have the following concerns, you might benefit from cheek enhancement:
1. Hollow Cheeks
When volume is lost in the midface or cheek area, the face takes on a narrowed, gaunt and tired look. This can age people’s appearance even more or give them an unnaturally heavier lower face that is disproportionate to their other features. Cheek fillers help to balance the mid and lower face proportions resulting in a natural looking, less tied appearance.
2. Mild Skin Laxity
Skin laxity, also referred to as sagging skin, starts as early as your mid-20s and gradually progresses as collagen and elastin production slows down and your skin is exposed to environmental elements like sun exposure and pollutants. Cheek fillers (especially those that stimulate collagen) can improve the look of sagging skin by reflating, filling and tightening the tissue.
3. Facial Contour Imbalance
People with undefined or atrophic cheekbones might find that their face has a flatter appearance. An additional concern is asymmetrical facial features, such as one cheekbone being higher than the other. Cheek fillers can be precisely injected to sculpt the contours of the cheeks and midface, giving you a lifted and balanced result.
4. Under-Eye Bags
Undereye bags can give your eyes a droopy, tired look that adds to early signs of aging. By adding volume to the cheeks with cheek filler, you can soften and rebalance the features of your face, significantly improving the appearance of under-eye tiredness.
5. Nasolabial Folds
Nasolabial folds (laugh lines) are wrinkles or folds that extend from the corners of the nose down to the sides of the mouth. They might start out as soft, fine lines but over time, repeated facial expressions and natural aging cause these lines to deepen. Cheek fillers lift and soften the smile lines while collagen resulting in a skin smoothening effect.
Who is a Candidate for Cheek Fillers in Kelowna?
Most patients who are bothered by age-related volume loss or undefined facial contours can benefit from cheek fillers. At Cerulean Medical Institute, we treat men and women, from their 20s-90’s, and will customize your cheek filler treatment to meet your unique cosmetic goals. Patients receive fillers to rejuvenate for a more youthful look and or redefine and enhance their features, for a natural looking appearance. It is important to have realistic expectations as cheek filler results will vary depending on the severity of skin aging, thickness of skin, how well your body metabolizes the filler, general health and other health factors.
The following factors may prevent you from receiving fillers:
- You are pregnant or breastfeeding.
- You have active acne or a skin infection.
- You have a history of bleeding problems or are currently taking blood thinners.
- You have an autoimmune disorder or other health conditions.
- You are a smoker and are unable to quit for a few weeks before and after your appointment.
At your consultation, Dr. Chetty will discuss your concerns and ask about your medical history in detail to determine whether you are a good candidate for cheek fillers.
