Cheek enhancements are currently our most popular dermal filler treatment.

Naturally occurring pads of fat (known medically as Malar Fat Pads) lie directly over our cheekbones. These pads are full and voluminous, giving the cheeks a rounded contour and helping to tighten the skin in all directions around it. As we age, these fat pads lose volume causing the skin overlying the cheekbones to sink closer to the bone.

This leads to:

  • “Hollowing” of the face – a look strongly associated with older age.
  • The skin over the cheek becomes less taut as the fat pads become smaller. This can result in loose skin under the eyes and around the jaw-line.

Injecting dermal filler into the Malar Fat Pad instantly restores the volume that has been lost over the years. The cheeks’ appear fuller and rounder, giving your face a softer natural look, while the skin around the lower eye and jaw-line tightens. The result is a younger, fresher looking face – explaining why cheek enhancements are currently our most popular dermal filler treatment.
