Non-Surgical Cheek & Chin EnhancementThe Knightsbridge Laser Clinic, London
The Knightsbridge Laser Clinic offers dermal filler injections for cheek and chin enhancement. All treatments are carried out by our team of highly knowledgeable and experienced doctors.
As we age, our skin loses fat, collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which offer facial volume and support. The bony structure and the muscles also lose volume. With dermal fillers that resemble your body’s own hyaluronic acid your facial volume and the quality and integrity of your skin can be replaced.
Non-surgical cheek enhancements improve the definition over the cheek bones or to lift the mid face as part of facial rejuvenation. Juvederm Voluma dermal fillers are alternatives to permanent cheek implants and are the only method available to achieve similar results without the need for surgery.
What is dermal filler?
Dermal fillers are materials that are frequently used to create volume, define borders and correct scarring, wrinkles and other depressions in the skin. They are often a kind of soft tissue designed in such a way that enables injections into the skin for purposes of improving the appearance. Generally, they are made of several types of materials of synthetic, man-made and natural categories and they have been developed into various standards depending on the level of usage.
Juvederm VOLUMA provides a non-surgical mid face lift. Whilst restoring volume in the skin in the upper half of the face to give a more youthful shape, it also diminishes the appearance of nose to mouth lines, to give a fresher look.
What is Juvederm Voluma?
Juvéderm Voluma is the latest generation of hyaluronic acid (HA) volumisers from Juvederm and is specifically developed to restore lost facial volume (e.g. in the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin). The product was developed to be a very smooth hyaluronic acid (HA) volumisers, making it easier to inject during treatment and resulting in a smooth, natural look and feel. The gel in Voluma is biodegraded naturally and safely over time, lasting 6-18 months after treatment. Juvéderm Voluma is demonstrated in clinical studies for its safety and a high level of satisfaction with the results of treatment.
What is the treatment process?
Before the treatment: A thorough consultation is carried out by our specialist Doctor to determine whether the treatment is suitable for you. The doctor will examine your desired treatment area and give you various options to ensure the best results. A treatment goal will be discussed and finally a customised treatment plan will be tailored to your needs. The doctor will discuss the treatment in detail with you and answer any questions you may have. Once you have agreed on a treatment plan, the doctor will apply an anaesthetic cream to the area for 20-30 min.
The treatment: Dermal filler is injected in small amounts and in precise locations into your skin so that there is total control over the shape and contours created by the procedure. The doctor will then massage the product to re-shape the cheeks or chin. During the procedure, you are fully awake. You hold a mirror and you are in complete control of the procedure’s results. The result is immediate and will last about up to 18 months. However, due to the immediate swelling from the procedure the final result will not be seen until about 2 weeks post treatment.
After the treatment: You should avoid touching or applying makeup on the treated area for 6 hours in order to prevent infection. There may be slight redness, swelling and some tenderness of the treated areas. This is normal of an injection and will disappear in one or two days. Specific post treatment instruction will be discussed with you prior to having the treatment. The results are immediate and last from 6-12 months. Because the results are relatively temporary, adjustments can be made as your face changes over time and you always retain a natural look.
What is the recovery period?
You may have swelling for 24-72 hours, especially with injections in the lips. It is recomended to avoid planning social events for 48 hours. After the treatment(s) some common injection-related reactions might occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the injection site. These typically resolve spontaneously within 2 to 10 days
Mild bruising or a slight blush might appear at the injection site immediately following treatment and may last for 2-10 days
What are the risks?
The soft tissue fillers that demonstrate consistent safety for the last 20 years are the non-permanent fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. As with any sort of injection there can be some bruising and minor swelling although this is not severe and usually settles within 2-3 days. There is rare chance of any allergic reaction which means no skin test is needed before treatment.
How can I avoid bruising?
To avoid swelling and bruising, you should do the following: Avoid aspirin, Excedrin, ibuprofen, Aleve or Advil for 1 week before and 2 days after. Tylenol is always fine. Avoid Vitamin E (multivitamin ok) or St. John’s Wort for 2-3 days before or after. Avoid exercise except for walking for 24 hours after the procedure.
How much does the treatment cost?
Chin: prices start from £395 | Cheeks: prices start from £395 – £700
