Volume and contour are two key aspects of the face that can determine its aesthetic. As we age or due to genetics, these features can change or become thinner over time. For years, the only way to improve facial looks was through surgery. But Simi Doctors provides a non-surgical way to have the benefits of a cheek lift without the risks of a surgical procedure.
At Simi Doctors, we are committed to providing safe and effective non-surgical treatments to help you reach your cosmetic goals. From our non-surgical cheek lift to laser treatments, every procedure is fully tailored to match your unique goals and needs. Call us today to get started and learn more about our unique approach to beauty.
What Is Non-Surgical Cheek Lift?
A traditional cheek lift involves some of the hallmarks of surgery, including incisions and scars. Our method goes a different direction, avoiding the risks and inconvenience of surgery. Also, the goal is slightly different as well. Instead of tightening skin, our non-surgical cheek lift aims to improve lift and decrease sagging through dermal fillers.
We do this by using a popular injectable filler called Juvederm. This hyaluronic acid filler has become increasingly popular recently due to its powerful and longer-lasting results. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, and many other dermal fillers use it to great effect as well.
Benefits of a cheek lift include:
- Improved facial contours
- Restoration of lost volume
- Decrease in sagging or loose skin
- No incisions or scarring
What Is the Treatment Like?
Surgical cheeks lifts can take hours to perform. After that, you will need to spend weeks recovering and waiting during the downtime. Our non-surgical cheek lift allows you to obtain fast results with virtually no downtime. Once you have your treatment plan set, you come in on your scheduled day.
The area where we will inject the filler may be numbed with topical anesthetic to ensure a comfortable experience from start to finish. We then use measured, targeted injections according to your unique treatment plan. From start to finish, the whole process can take only about half an hour. After your session, you can return to your daily routine right away.
Many patients choose to combine a cheek lift with other treatments. Since we provide non-surgical procedures, you can easily get multiple treatments during a single visit to further enhance your results or boost your appearance. Unlike surgery, additional treatments won’t put significant strain on your body.
Health is a precious gift and prevention is the best medicine
Is There a Recovery Period?
Typically, patients will not need any downtime after a treatment. However, you can experience some swelling and redness around the injection area. While this likely won’t interfere with your day, some patients enjoy taking the day off to simply relax while the swelling goes down. Generally, any swelling should subside within one to two days.
If you have any concerns or questions after your cheek lift, let us know. We will gladly provide you with any information you need at any point in the process. Our goal is for your cheek lift to be as stress-free and comfortable as possible.
How Long Does It Last?
We use Juvederm for our cheek lifts because it is one of the longer-lasting dermal fillers. For some patients, they may see their results for up to two years. The duration of your results depends on several factors, including your age and activity levels. Highly active patients may see their bodies break down the filler faster than patients with mild levels of activity. It is also important to care for your skin, which will prolong your results. Allowing your skin to become damaged or overexposed to sunlight can decrease the duration of your results.
