Cheek filler treatment

Cheek filler treatment is one of the most powerful non-surgical treatments available.

When performed properly, injection of filler to the cheek has the power to transform the face to a younger, healthier version of original in a way that should be virtually undetectable.

The reason that injection of filler in the cheek can be so powerful is down to the way the face ages

When we are young we have a full, healthy layer of fat that lives below the skin and gives the face its youthful fullness.

As we age, this fatty layer diminishes which leads to the appearance of deflation of descent of the cheek and face. This process typically begins in the early 30s and accelerates throughout the forties and into the fifties. Restoring this volume loss can be one of the most gratifying procedures to perform in aesthetic practice – but, like all aesthetic procedures, the experience and aesthetic judgement of the doctor is key to achieving an attractive and, most importantly, natural looking result.

In the past we used to think of the fatty layer as a single unit.

In the last few years however our understanding of the anatomy of the facial fat has been transformed by new research.

The findings have showed us that the fat actually exists in a number of distinct compartments, each separated by a fibrous membrane, and each of these compartments ages in a different way. Restoring youth to the face therefore requires much more than simply diffusely fattening the face up – the volume needs to be restored at key positions in the cheek, relating to the underlying anatomy. This is where Dr Darren McKeown’s decade of experience is key to achieving the most natural results. The goal is never to change the face: the goal is always to restore it.d.

Top tips

For cheek augmentation I virtually always use Juvederm Voluma.

I find it to be a long lasting product that is both safe and effective. Most patients will get a good result that lasts a year: for some patients it will last even longer than this. There are some other products that can be used in the cheeks, which proclaim to offer longer lasting results. I feel very passionately about not using these semi-permanent products.

The safety profile, and reversibility, of Juvederm Voluma – like all hyaluronic acid products – makes it my first

Most patients at the earlier stages of ageing will require a total of 2cc of voluma for a satisfactory correction. Some people who have more advanced ageing and volume loss may require higher volumes.

Although extremely apprehensive and never having had any Botox before because of a fear of needles and on ethical grounds, I have to say, I was elated to discover that after going ahead with a little botox, it was as promised, the feeling of a tiny scratch or like a little pin prick. I don’t do pain very well, so it was more than a big deal for me. I was made to feel very welcome and at ease. Darren answered every question honestly and most importantly, I never felt rushed or pressured into anything. I’ll definitely be back! Thanks again.
