How It Works – Cheek Fillers
At Face Clinic London we use Restylane SubQ via Pix’L™ micro cannula to enhance the cheeks. Cheek fillers are injected deeper compared to standard dermal fillers as they add volume from below and add support to the overlying tissues, providing facial fullness and restoring facial symmetry. The Pix’L cannula helps to reduce pain, bruising and swelling during and after the procedure.
Who Its For
This treatment is ideal for patients with flattened facial features and sunken cheeks as a result of natural ageing or weight loss, or those with an unbalanced or asymmetrical face. Restylane SubQ Hyaluronic Acid cheek fillers are temporary fillers which last for 12 months and are an ideal treatments to enhance cheeks without the risks associated with invasive plastic surgery, surgical facelift and permanent implants.
How We Inject
We are trained in using the Pix’L Micro Cannula which has a blunt tip which does not cut through the tissue but pushes it gently to the side without injuring it. A small hole in the cannula allows the injection to be precise.
The Benefits Of Pix’L Micro Cannula
The Pix’L™ micro cannula does not puncture the tissue like a sharp needle, but glides gently along the natural tissue connections. The blunt tip displaces blood vessels without injuring them; reducing pain and swelling. There will only be one injection point on each cheek, where the cannula is inserted, which results in a lot less pain compared to standard cheek filler procedures. No anaesthetic is needed, a numbing cream is applied before the procedure.
Almost no tissue trauma
The inside and outside of the cannulas are smooth, without notches and the blunt tip makes injuries very unlikely. The cannula is made from high-tech, surgical stainless steel and offers high flexibility and resistance for an extremely comfortable injection treatment.
The reduced trauma resulting from the Pix’L Cannula technology allows patients to resume their daily routine very quickly. Any downtime is therefore reduced to an absolute minimum in comparison to standard cheek filler needle injections. You may have a small amount of swelling or bruising at the cannula insertion point, but this procedure is designed to be less invasive than standard needle cheek fillers.
