Nonsurgical Cheek Enhancement
Non Invasive Cheek Lift in New York
As we age, we lose a lot of volume in our cheeks. Depending on the natural shape of the cheeks and genetic factors, cheeks can start to look flat and droopy as early as the late twenties. Flat and droopy checks can make us appear older and fatigued. In fact, droopy cheeks have the aesthetic power to make one’s entire face appear droopy.
Rejuv Clinic offers a noninvasive, affordable and effective alternative to surgical cheek implants. If you desire raised and younger looking cheeks, contact us today to schedule a no-cost obligation. Our nonsurgical cheek implants may just give your face the “lift” you’ve been wanting.
What is a Nonsurgical Fix?
Non-surgical repairs are for individuals who find their cheeks unappealing. They are for people who feel improving the structure, or shape, of their cheeks, will increase their attractiveness resulting in contentment with their appearance.
A non-surgical cheek implant may be the right solution for you.
Rejuve Clinic performs non-surgical cheek implants with approval of the Food and Drug Administration. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Radiesse are used. Radiesse, a dermal filler made of Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres is used by a board certified physician. The skin care specialist will gently inject the filler into the desired skin area, and increased volume is seen immediately. While Radiesse creates an instant improvement in volume and appearance, it continues to improve the skin’s appearance by naturally stimulating collagen production. Collagen is key in allowing people to have a second chance at healthier and younger-looking skin.
Radiesse is naturally absorbed by your body. The treatment is a temporary correction and will need to be repeated a year from the first. It does not slip from its position if performed by a skilled skin care professional.
Juvederm is a dermal filler made of Hyaluronic Acid. Its volume enhancing effects are noticed immediately, and an enzymatic solution can be injected at any time to dissolve the Juvederm. Injections last about one year when they will need to be repeated.
At the beginning of treatment, Lidocaine, a numbing cream, is applied to the area to be treated. When the Lidocaine begins to work, after about 30 minutes, you will feel little to no pain. Next a trained medical professional will inject one of the fillers into the designated area —a procedure which takes between 15 and 30 minutes.
Following the treatment, you may experience slight swell, but it usually won’t interfere with the remainder of your day. Most people easily return to their regularly scheduled activities.
What to Expect:
At Rejuve Clinic, we start every treatment with a consultation. During this consultation, we get to know you and your cosmetic desires and expectations. We also conduct a thorough medical history, which helps us choose the best treatment plan for you. The medical history will include any medical illnesses, prior skin treatments, medications, vitamins and allergies. A board-certified physician will then do a physical examination of the skin area to be treated. A physical exam is crucial for ensuring that a proper diagnosis is made and for fully understanding the cosmetic condition. Once a diagnosis is made, our highly-qualified medical team will make a treatment recommendation. During this time, it is requested that you ask any questions you may have and express your concerns. Our number one goal is always a satisfying cosmetic outcome, but we first want to make sure you are comfortable with your treatment choice and fully informed.
At the start of your treatment, Lidocaine, a numbing cream, will be applied to the area. It will take approximately 30 minutes for Lidocaine to start working. At this point, you should feel little to no pain, although you might feel slight pressure. Next, a licensed medical professional will inject one of the fillers into the designated skin area. The injections usually take from 15 to 30 minutes.
After the treatment, you may experience slight swelling or bruising, but it usually is never enough to interfere with the rest of your day. Most people can easily return to their regularly scheduled daily activities.
What Are the Risks:
As with any injection, there is always a risk of infection at the site. Bruising, swelling and bleeding are also possible. Usually, the procedure doesn’t have complications, however if you notice any of these side effects, contact our clinic immediately.
The greatest benefit of non-surgical procedures is they are reversible and temporary. The costly and invasive alternative, a surgical cheek implant, is permanent. Usually, there is no downtime and individual return to their lives as usual. During the procedure, the patient is awake and can tell the doctor how they are feeling. The nonsurgical cheek implant procedure is easy, affordable and temporary. These combine to make the procedure very attraction for individuals who do not want surgery.
