Restoring volume, contour and shape to the face for instantly beautifying and youth-enhancing results.
Nonsurgical cheek enhancement using dermal fillers is a safe and effective way of correcting multiple aesthetic concerns in the midface region. As we age, our bone structure changes, we lose subcutaneous tissue and fat pads slowly disappear. Consequently, our cheeks begin to flatten or take on a sunken look – one of the first tell-tale signs of ageing. This loss of volume can make nasolabial folds (the folds between the nose and mouth) more prominent, and lines and sagging under the eyes more noticeable.
By injecting volumising filler into the mid-face area, we can improve facial contours and bring back the more youthful proportions we were once blessed with.
Dr Feldman injects a dermal filler deep into the skin to immediately enhance the midface area. A variety of different fillers can be used in the cheek area and can be tailored to provide any of the following:
- increased volume
- improved shape
- a more defined contour
- more facial definition
Where is the clinic?
Dr Feldman’s Melbourne clinic is located at Suite 1102, 9 Yarra Street, South Yarra, Melbourne. She also tends to her patients in Sydney (Westfield Towers, Bondi Junction) and East Perth (Suite 2/10 Eastbrook Terrace) every six weeks. For full contact details, please see here.
How long will it last?
Depending on the type of filler used (with thicker formulations usually lasting longer), fillers have been clinically proven to last anywhere between six months to 2 years. Injections around active areas of the face, such as the mouth and lips tend to dissipate more quickly; however, less active areas of the face, such as cheeks or temples tend to maintain the filler for longer.
Is it safe?
There is minimal risk with dermal fillers. Lumping and bruising may occur when administered by an inexperienced practitioner. However, Dr Feldman has more than 25 years’ experience as a cosmetic surgeon, along with an unblemished track record. Occasionally, swelling will occur for a couple of days after the procedure.
Is it painful?
Dermal fillers are relatively painless. After a brief pinprick sensation as the needle or cannula is inserted, little else is felt as the contents contain a local anaesthetic.
What is dermal filler made of?
Dermal fillers are a clear gel made of a natural sugar compound called hyaluronic acid. This substance is found in the skin naturally but depletes as we age.
