Cheek Enhancement

Injectable hyaluronic acid volumisers (dermal fillers) that mimic the body’s own collagen & elastin are injected into the areas of the face that need a little more support and enhancement.

Loss of volume and definition in the mid-face and cheek area are often one of the first signs of ageing that could benefit from cheek enhancement.

Cheek enhancement uses dermal fillers to re-sculpt the cheeks for a curvier, plumper, and more youthful look. 

Dermal fillers can often last around 12-22 months. Shortly after the treatment you should notice more definition and contour, with the full effects of the treatment apparent in around 2 weeks. 

Jaw/Chin  Enhancements

If you feel that your jaw line lacks definition, or has begun to sag due to ageing or weight loss, you may want to consider this treatment.

 Enhancing the jaw line with dermal filler injections can give you a more youthful appearance by filling in loose skin. By smoothing the contours of the jaw, it increases the definition of this area.

 Jaw enhancement can also decrease the appearance of jowls,or hanging folds of fat and skin drooping beneath the jaw line.

For the chin area dermal filler is used on the chin bone to tighten the skin and create more definition in the chin and jowl area, reducing the appearance of a weak/ flat chin. Results can be dramatic and can be seen immediately after treatment. 

Results can last from 12-22 months.
