Answer: Is 0.5 ml of filler for each side of cheek enough for subtle look? Using 1 cc of filler for both sides of your cheeks will give minimal change, but you could always do that first and see what you think. If you wanted to, you could always add more later if you want more change.
Most syringes contain 1ml of filler, or about 1/5 of a teaspoon. Occasionally you'll see “half syringes” advertised, at just 0.5ml, it's very hard to create a noticeable impact with that small amount of filler.
Answer: 1 cc of fillers in the cheek can show some difference but most patients need two or more.
Most patients want to keep the appearance very subtle and natural, whilst some younger patients want a more volumous look. We generally use half a ml for a very subtle change, 1ml for a average fullness that will never look overdone. Younger patients may want more than 1ml in total.
They are ideal for replacing volume loss, enhancing cheek volume, and can improve the appearance of the lower eyelid by volumising the upper cheek area. We recommend using as little as 1ml per session for an enhanced appearance.
The Results Improve Over Time
Because these injections stimulate your body's production of collagen and elastin, the final results of treatment won't be seen for several weeks. Even as the hyaluronic acid is processed by your body, healthy collagen and elastin grow at a more significant rate.
Fortunately, dermal fillers work very quickly, and you won't have to wait twelve months to see the full benefits of your injections. That said, these injectable treatments take some time to integrate into your tissues, and it's normal for your dermal filler to take up to two weeks to fully settle into your face.
Filler migration is the movement of a dermal filler from its injection site to another area of the body. While it is possible for fillers to migrate, this side effect is extremely rare and can be avoided by choosing a qualified injector.
0.5 ml is a small quantity and will only produce subtle results. There is no reason why you need to wait a "few months" prior to receiving more filler.
Again, the amount of lip filler used is important for achieving your desired results. If you want noticeably plumper lips but don't want to go too far, a half syringe of filler may be enough. This will give you a more natural-looking and subtle result.
A 1ml syringe is usually recommended to start with when patients come in for a treatment. A half syringe of filler can make difference and is a great place to start for some individuals who are nervous or want a very subtle change.
It is not uncommon to experience a small degree of asymmetry immediately post-treatment due to the potential for swelling and bruising. Juvederm can take up to 4 weeks to integrate, so it is best to wait and review in 2-4 weeks with your Injector at which point you will have a better idea of the final result.
Cheeks: Cheeks are very versatile and also the most challenging region of your face to treat. For each treatment, you'll need 10 to 15 filler syringes. Injecting too much filler might result in undesirable side effects, including a “duck-billed” appearance.
Unlike other dermal fillers such as Sculptra, Juvederm does not significantly expand after injection. This allows Juvederm to create a smooth result and for the patient to immediately get an idea after treatment of the result that they will live with.
There is a very common misconception that dermal fillers can make skin sag, however we can safely say that this is FALSE. People assume that once they have been fully absorbed by your body you will be left with loose, hanging skin leaving you looking even older than you did previously.
Many plastic surgeons say that Juvederm and Restylane are the most durable and longest-lasting fillers available. Both contain hyaluronic acid and are good for smoothing wrinkles and lines. Hyaluronic acid carries 1,000 times its weight in water and makes the skin look young, supple, and soft.
Dermal fillers can be used to restore mid-face (cheek) volume and sculpt the jawline, in order to reduce the appearance of sagging jowls. The procedure is not painful, does not require any significant down-time and is excellent at lifting and sculpting the skin, where volume needs to be replaced.
Depending on the injection site and amount of dermal filler, most HA fillers last from 6 – 12 months on average. Regardless of which dermal filler you use, two or three syringes are almost always recommended in order to achieve the most gorgeous outcomes.
0.5ml is a great introductory filler amount for first-time lip filler clients, especially if you're nervous of what the result will be. Remember you will swell after treatment a little, so you will not see major change with 0.5ml after the treatment has settled over the first 2-4 weeks.
Although extremely rare, dermal fillers are able to migrate within the skin if consistent and adequate pressure is applied to them. For this reason, we advise patients not to get a facial, massage (on the treated skin), or microdermabrasion for the first two weeks following their filler injections.
Hello - Swelling post dermal filler injection does occur and usually peaks at 24-48 hours. This may affect your smile. The good news is swelling typically is fully resolved by one week and your smile should be back to normal.
“Proper placement of mid-face and lower face filler should not significantly affect the smile,” he shares. With that said, “if an overly firm filler is used or if the region is overfilled, an unnatural appearance can result as the lips push against stiff surrounding tissues,” he adds.
The use of fillers in the face to achieve a liquid facelift or to increase the size of your cheek bones will leave some damage behind to your face and in the young patient under the age of 35 it will make you look older.
