Cheek fillers are not only for those who have found that their ageing has changed the shape of their face. While dermal fillers in London will give you a fresher, more structured appearance as the years go on, they can also assist you when you’re younger, in creating more aesthetically pleasing facial contours; giving you a more striking appearance. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we offer a range of options to lift your features and smooth out fine lines, available in both of out clinics in London and Buckinghamshire. Dermal fillers will plump up your cheekbones giving you a softer and yet a more distinct overall look.
The attractiveness of cheekbones
Without going too deep into explaining facial metrics and how quantifiably your attractiveness can be determined with mathematics, researchers in biology have found that in studies a symmetry in facial features increases positive responses from observers. Of course cheekbones play a significant part in shaping and volumising the mid-face both longitudinally and laterally, thus increasing attractiveness overall. These studies indicated that the proportions of the mid-width and length of the face directly influence attractiveness and that plumping up cheekbones can bring a longer, thinner, less attractive face to a more pleasing aesthetic.
Evolutionary biologists suggest that prominent cheekbones in men give them a higher chance of attracting a mate than men with a less prominent facial structure. As women are seeking out more defined plump cheeks, men are looking to enhance this feature to boost their own attractiveness.
Find the perfect dermal fillers practitioner in London and Buckinghamshire
It is easier than ever to research your prospective practitioner when looking at having any treatment performed, and this is especially important when you are entrusting the part of your body that encapsulates the image you wish to project to the world to someone else. Look carefully at the experience and qualifications of any professional who will be performing any procedures on you and ask to see previous case studies showing the results of their work, there should be ‘before’ and ‘after’ photographs available.
Experience and a thorough understanding of the facial bone structure, should be the expertise and skills of a treating practitioner to enhance your features correctly. For dermal fillers in London, you need to use a qualified nurse practitioner or doctor to perform the procedure. It may be non-invasive, but it is still delicate and it is wise to trust someone that understands facial metrics and has legal access to treatments like hyaluronic acid that are going to be placed under your skin.
Your dermal fillers consultation at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic in London and Buckinghamshire
After conducting an examination of your face, the practitioner performing your treatment, in some cases, will mark the areas they intend to fill out according to what best suits your features and proportions. They will then begin to fill the correct placement areas above and around the cheekbones until the desired effect is created. The procedure will only last about 20 minutes after which the effect is immediate and your new more contoured face is complete.
The fillers can last to about 18 months and treatments may be repeated for continued augmentation and a pleasing visage.
