CHEEKS

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Stop a sagging cheek
  • Boost volume and lift the cheek
  • Contour without make up

A young-looking face has round contours, high cheekbones and a well-defined jawline. There are smooth curves from the cheeks to the edge of the nose, without hollows. As the cheeks lose volume, they sag and drop from their usual position, this leads to the formation of nasolabial folds (the folds from the corners of the nose to the mouth), oral commissures (the folds just beneath the corners of the mouth), and subsequently jowls (the skin that sags beneath the jawline). These changes give the face a square appearance which contrasts with the triangular appearance of the more youthful face.

Patients often present to me complaining of specific cosmetic concerns. They complain of their tear trough deformities (hollowness under the eyes), their jowls, lines running along the side of their cheeks and, most frequently, of their nasolabial folds.

Filling in the cheeks is another solution to filling in the nasolabial folds as treating the cause of the problem itself should ensure longer lasting and more natural results and lifting of the overall face. So when I see my clients, I explain to them in front of the mirror what are the changes happening on their faces and how dermal fillers can restore the volume loss to achieve more natural and youthful results. I also show them before and after pictures for similar areas in similar age group.

After that, I put a treatment plan which consists of what kind and how much fillers will be used and sometimes the number of sessions. My favourite type of filler is Teosyal Hyaluronic acid based filler which gives instant, visible and long lasting results of up to 18 months. This filler is very safe and effective, it also biodegradable and dissolvable. The treatment takes around 30 min and it is not uncomfortable with slight redness post treatment which can be covered with makeup.

Why get cheek fillers?

As the cheeks lose volume, they sag and drop from their usual position, this leads to the formation of nasolabial folds (the folds from the corners of the nose to the mouth), oral commissures (the folds just beneath the corners of the mouth), and subsequently jowls (the skin that sags beneath the jawline). These changes give the face a square appearance which contrasts with the triangular appearance of the more youthful face.

How long does it last?

Depending on the filler it could be from 6-24 months.

Product Summary

For example, Perfectha Complement contains 180,000 gel particles/ml and is used to treat superficial wrinkles, while Perfectha Deep contains 8,000 gel particles/ml and is used to treat deep wrinkles and to contour the cheeks, chin and lips.

Teosyal Ultra Deep is the second most intense treatment of the Teosyal range. Although one of the most expensive in the range, it is also one of the most dramatic and long lasting and is specifically designed for the use in treatments involving a high amount of volume. It is also Teosyals’ densest product so is capable of achieving impressive effects.

The main uses of Teosyal Ultra Deep is to create an restore facial volumes, treat especially deep wrinkles in thicker skin, re-sculpt facial contours, eradicate any folds in the skin and restore original curves found in the face. Even though this is one of the most dramatically effective products available, the injections of Ultra Deep do not require an incision, and are not traumatic to the patient. This means that the pain inflicted by the treatment will be generally similar to that of the other treatments – essentially minimal, whilst still achieving an impressive transformation.

Due to the density and purpose of this product, it can only be injected directly into the deep dermis. It is very important when opting to use this product that you go with a practiced practitioner, as this brand of Teosyal required very precise placement and injection techniques. It can be more expensive than the other products available from Teosyal, but a safe treatment and the effect that you are after is much more important than finding the cheapest practitioner available. As Teosyal Ultra Deep is injected very deep into the dermis, is the densest of all the Teosyal products, and has to be injected in sufficient doses (usually larger than the amount injected with other Teosyal products), it is one of the longest lasting facial fillers available.

Teosyal Ultra Deep can last up to 12 months on average, so is a very long lasting result. As with all the Teosyal products, if you wish to maintain the effects of Ultra Deep then a top up will be required around 9 – 12 months after your initial treatment, depending on each individual person.

Tesoyal Ultimate is the most intense and longest lasting of the Teosyal range. Teosyal Ultimate is the ideal product for the perfect remodelling of the face due to its high volume creating capacity. This can achieve amazing results, and is recommended for use in the upper cheeks, the temporal region, marionette lines, the nose, the chin, the mandibular line and the eyebrows. It is not recommended for use in the lips as the product is just unsuitable for the comparatively less intense treatment needed to plump such a small area. The injection for this product is never injected into the dermis, unlike many of the other Teosyal products. Instead, it is normally injected deeply in a concave area of the subdermal layers of skin in the face. This may sound a little bit scary, but because Teosyal Ultimate is designed to completely remodel the face, it is necessary to inject into the optimum place to get the most out of the treatment. Due to the intense purpose of this treatment it is very important, just as with Teosyal Ultra Deep, that you do a little bit of research into the practitioner or centre you wish to go with. A practised practitioner will be the safest and most efficient. The use of this product always requires a thorough knowledge of the facial anatomy and an extremely careful inspection of each individual’s facial architecture.

As with the entire range of Teosyal products, the effects of Ultimate are instant. This means that you could end up walking out of the treatment looking literally years younger. Most of the treatments for Teosyal Ultimate can take around an hour, so it is another quick and easy way to look and feel better about the way that you look.

Because of the volume of Teosyal Ultimate needed to remodel the face and create the desired effect, it is also one of the longest lasting fillers on the market. Manufacturers claim the duration of each treatment to last between 12 – 18 months. Although the most expensive of the Teosyal family, the longer lasting and dramatic effects have made many people very happy customers, raving of the benefits of their experience with the treatment.
