Reshape your facial contours with no surgery

What makes someone look old? What contributes to beauty? One of the hidden signs of beauty is having a smooth facial contour and a balanced facial proportion. As we start to age, we lose the youthful facial contours due to the volume loss in our cheeks. This can also contribute to the deepening of the nasolabial folds, jowls and marionette lines. To look more youthful, a good option would be to therefore add volume to the cheeks or mid face area. This can enhance your natural beauty or restore the natural shape of your cheeks.

Cheek enhancement can be done to rejuvenate your appearance by bringing volume back to your cheeks and maintaining your youthful facial contour. It can also be used to create a glamorous Kim Kardashian-like cheek enhancement, no facial contouring makeup skills needed. For a noticeable and natural result, contact Dr. Teh for a confidential consultation and let Dr. Teh customise your treatment plan.

What is Cheek Enhancement?

Dermal fillers are bio compatible and made from a naturally occurring substance in our skin, hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers help to strengthen and restore the integrity of our skin. The dermal fillers have been technologically improved to integrate into the appropriate levels of skin better, and to last longer. Dermal fillers or wrinkle fillers can fill individual wrinkles and restore volume or revolumised areas of your face that is sagging. Dermal fillers can instantly lift & repair wrinklescorrect depression or volume loss. Sometimes a combination of wrinkle relaxer and dermal fillers are used to provide an optimal result.

What are the costs/prices of dermal fillers injections?

Cheek Enhancement is a procedure otherwise known as Cheek Filler. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical technique of re-volumising the cheeks. Before any filler is administered, Dr. Teh will assess clients personally to ensure she will meet your expectations, discuss filler choices, potential risks and recovery period. Using a licensed filler specially formulated to lift the cheek area, Dr. Teh will administer the filler into the correct plane in the skin, softening the nasolabial folds and reducing the sagging of the jowls with an overall facelift-like result. 

How long will the Cheek Enhancement last?

Depending on the amount of fillers administered, the type of fillers used, quality of your skin and the metabolism of the fillers in your skin, the enhancement will last anywhere from 6 to 24 months. During your thorough consultation with Dr. Teh, your full face will be assessed to ensure you receive the desired outcome. Most of our clients see Dr. Teh about once a year for maintenance. Individual results and duration of effects will vary, which is why it is important to first have a detailed discussion with Dr. Teh before you decide to undertake Cheek Enhancement.

Is the treatment painful?

Most Cheek Enhancement fillers contain local anaesthetic so the procedure can be relatively pain-free. Dr. Teh prides herself on her experience with administering fillers with a gentle hand and will therefore ensure your treatment is comfortable. 

Are there any side effects?

There are no serious complications documented with non-surgical Cheek Enhancement. Because it is non-invasive, the side effects are less than a surgical face lift. Our clinic aims to maintain our low rate of incidence of side effects and Dr. Teh’s experience also means she takes extra precautions in her technique to minimise risks. 

As with any medical procedures though, it carries potential temporary side effects such as mild redness, swelling and bruising. An in-depth discussion with Dr. Teh is vital to assess all potential risks and rare side effects before undertaking the treatment.  

Will there be downtime with Cheek Enhancement?

Generally no. Most of our patients have virtually no downtime and most of them can go back to work or daily routine after the treatment. However, individual experiences can vary depending on your skin type, medications being taken or aftercare. To ensure your recovery is quick and hassle-free, Dr. Teh and her team will be available to assist you after your Cheek Enhancement treatment if needed. 

How do I know if I should undertake Cheek Enhancement?

As people age differently, some people may lose volume in their cheeks at different rates as well.

To see if you might need Cheek Enhancement:

Stand in front of the mirror. Check if you have a deepening nasolabial line (the fold from the corner of your nostril to the corner of your mouth) and deepening marionette lines/jowls (the line from the corner of your mouth to the jawline). Now look at your cheeks. Are your cheeks losing its fullness? If the above are true, you may need Cheek Enhancement. But if you’re not sure, contact Dr. Teh for a consultation and let Dr. Teh help you.

Is Cheek Enhancement only for the old?

Of course not. A set of high cheekbones and full cheeks with a visually proportionate facial contour is something all women (and men!) aspire towards. If you would like to enhance your features and cheekbones to get contours worthy of Kim Kardashian, Dr. Teh will help you achieve a natural result whilst making sure you still look like you. 

Will people be able to tell that I've done a Cheek Enhancement?

The key to a successful enhancement is to have people realise you look less tired and more rejuvenated, but not be able to pinpoint exactly why. This is what Dr. Teh aims to deliver; selecting the right fillers for the right areas so that the results are natural, subtle and makes you look like a better version of yourself. So you get the results you want, without having to answer to anybody else. 

What is the cost of Cheek Enhancement?

The treatment starts from $450, depending on the volume required, the type of fillers used and the skin type. Speak to Dr. Teh or book a consultation to get a thorough treatment plan worked out based on your needs.
