The London Cosmetic Clinic offers dermal filler injections for cheek and chin enhancement to add definition, contour and proportion to the face. All treatments are carried Dr Salinda Johnson and Dr A-me Ng, two of the UK’s most experienced specialist, cosmetic doctors. Cheek enhancements may be desirable either to improve the definition of the cheek bones or to lift the mid face as part of facial rejuvenation. This treatment can also diminish the appearance of nose to mouth lines which then gives the face a fresher, more youthful look. Juvederm Voluma dermal fillers are alternatives to permanent cheek implants which can be problematic as they sometimes cause infection or move. This can then result in asymmetry in the face. Although fat can be used to transfer into the face and add volume, Juvederm Voluma injections are the only method available to achieve a similar result without the need for surgery.
What is Juvederm Voluma?
The product was developed to be a very smooth hyaluronic acid (HA) volumisers, making it easier to inject during treatment and resulting in a smooth, natural look and feel.
The gel in Voluma is biodegraded naturally and safely over time, lasting 6-18 months after treatment. Juvéderm Volumma is demonstrated in clinical studies for its safety and a high level of satisfaction with the results of treatment.
What does the procedure involve?
Prior the treatment :
The area is cleaned with antiseptic and marked using a marker pen to decide on the optimum site for enhancement. Numbing cream can be applied if patients prefer for additional comfort
The new injection technique has allowed the treatment to be very comfortable and not neccessarilryneed any topical anesthetic. Juvederm VOLUMA/Restylane SubQ is slowly injected to place the filler above the cheek bone. Further product may be placed laterally in the cheek to further enhance the contour depending on the natural shape of your cheek. The result is immediate and will last about up to 18 months. However, due to the immediate swelling from the procedure the final result will not be seen until about 3-4 weeks. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result can be created for you. Our treatment provides a long-lasting but not permanent result leaving you the option of refining your treatment in tune with changing taste and fashion.
Post treatment :
It is advised to lay on your back for the first 2-3 nights sleep to avoid pressure on the treated area
Avoid touching and applying creams or make up for 6 hours after the treatment to prevent infection
Avoid exercise for 4-6 hours post treatment
Minimise excessive sun exposure
Ensure to wear an SPF 35+ daily

What is the recovery time and when can I go back to work?
Due to the possible post treatment effects of the injection it is be better to rest until the next day. You are advised to take some pain killers to prevent any discomfort for 1-2 days if necessary
What are the risks?
The soft tissue fillers that demonstrate consistent safety for the last 20 years are the non-permanent fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. As with any sort of injection there can be some bruising and minor swelling although this is not severe and usually settles within 2-3 days. There is rare chance of any allergic reaction which means no skin test is needed before treatment
