For most of us, we want to maintain youthful, vibrant skin for as long as possible. We will apply our sunscreen, implement a quality skincare routine, and stay hydrated and well-nourished, but unfortunately, as much as we try, these standard approaches to skincare don’t give us the youthful, plump skin we love.
At Waterloo Medical Cosmetics, we often treat skin beginning to sag. One of our favourite treatments: cheek filler.
If you’re struggling with a loss of volume in your skin, or you’re dreaming of plumper and more youthful skin, we can’t wait to tell you all about this amazing treatment.
What Causes the Skin to Lose Volume?
In some scenarios, you can control how much volume your skin loses. For instance, things like smoking, poor nutrition, and sun exposure are all lifestyle factors you can control if you want to maintain vibrant, plump skin. At the same time, natural aging and genetic factors cause volume loss, which are completely out of your control.
In these uncontrollable instances, the skin starts to lose its volume because the body naturally starts to produce less collagen as you age. Collagen is a protein that keeps your skin looking plump and firm. Without collagen, skin starts to sag and appears much less youthful.
This is where cheek filler comes into play.
What Is Cheek Filler?
Cheek filler is an injection that is done around your cheekbones by a professional nurse. The injection is filled with a material that helps to bring back volume to the face, with hyaluronic acid and polylactic two of the most popular filler materials.
At Waterloo Medical Cosmetics, we use Restylane for cheek filler, which is a type of hyaluronic acid filler. We love Restylane because it can provide you with results that last up to 12 months. Restylane is also amazing at smoothing out pesky fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does It Work?
Cheek fillers work by plumping up the skin in areas that have previously lost volume due to genetics or other lifestyle factors. They also work by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and can assist with hollowing under the eyes, which help to further provide that youthful appearance that most people want when they choose to try cheek fillers.
Results and Effectiveness
Cheek fillers are extremely effective at providing patients with facial contouring that will give you a more youthful and vibrant appearance. Our only word of caution here is to ensure that you do your research when deciding on who will perform the treatment for you.
As a rule, you only want to work with reputable medical spas like Waterloo Medical Cosmetics. Allowing someone to perform the treatment who is inexperienced with cheek fillers could result in an appearance that doesn’t look natural or flattering.
Is It Safe?
Cheek fillers are an FDA-cleared procedure that is very safe. With cheek filler, you can still achieve a youthful facial contour, with a time-tested treatment from experienced injectors.
Keep in mind that some clients may experience bruising and swelling immediately after their injection, but after about five days, the skin should start to settle and the bruising will fade.
