About Cheek Augmentation

Cheek augmentation is the process of changing the appearance of the cheek, which at Australian Laser and Skin is achieved with a non-invasive procedure using dermal fillers. As we age, we lose volume in our cheeks due to a natural depletion of collagen and fat, as well as other structural components like muscles and bone.

Fat Pads: The fat pads in our cheeks change over time. When we are younger the fat pads are distributed evenly, providing a plump and youthful appearance. Through the aging process fat can migrate or diminish, leading to volume loss and sagging cheeks. This loss of fat contributes to the development of hollowed or sunken cheeks, creating an older and tired appearance.

Muscles: Facial muscles play a role in cheek contour. The weakening and sagging of facial muscles, particularly the zygomaticus major and minor, can lead to a loss of firmness and tone in the cheeks. This can result in the formation of smile lines and the descent of the cheek tissue.

Bone Structure: Changes in the underlying bone structure can influence cheek appearance. As people age, bones in the face can gradually lose density and resorb. This can contribute to a reduction in cheekbone prominence and overall facial volume, exacerbating the hollowed or flat appearance of the cheeks.

Adding volume to a person’s cheeks can enhance their facial contours, adding definition, improving facial symmetry and balance and provide a more youthful fullness. This versatile treatment allows our Cosmetic Injectors to customise results for our client’s to meet their individual preferences, whether it’s a subtle enhancement or a more dramatic change. The minimally invasive nature of dermal fillers means minimal downtime and a quicker recovery compared to surgical options, making it a popular choice for those seeking facial rejuvenation without the need for invasive surgery.
