Do you want killer cheekbones?
Cheek fillers can bring the face into balance by making the cheekbones more prominent.
This can give you instant, razor-sharp definition and a natural-looking, youthful appearance. The treatment also smooths the nose-to-mouth lines, effectively lifting the entire face.
Temporary fillers are injected under the skin above the cheekbones. We use either Restylane, Juvederm (hyaluronic acid) or Radiesse (calcium hydroxy apatite) or Ellanse (Polycaprolactone), all extremely safe temporary fillers.
Ellanse and Radiesse also acts as a collagen stimulator, adding more volume and definition.
If you want to move towards a different face shape, with full facial sculpting, please book a consultation with Dr Nina. We can advise you on both Diamond and Heart Facial Sculpting packages.
We will be able to provide you with a bespoke treatment plan to move towards your dream facial contour in a matter of weeks.
Dr Nina’s Filler of choice for this treatment is Ellanse S from Sinclair Pharma.

How long do the results last?
The results of the treatment can last up to 6-12 months sometimes longer depending on how fast your metabolism works. Every person’s individual metabolism is different to the next, the longevity of filler will also vary greatly from one person to another. For those with a very fast metabolic rate, filler will break down more rapidly than in those with a slower metabolic rate.
