< Problem Areas


As we age, our face tends to lose volume in the cheek areas. This usually begins in the thirties and continues throughout life.

This volume loss is the result of loss of fat, muscle and bone. In the mid face, volume loss occurs mainly in the cheek area. This tends to create the impression of tiredness.

Also, loss of volume in the mid face causes a more square shaped face as opposed to the more youthful triangular or oval shape of youth.

As volume loss increases there is less support for the lower face and folds between the nose and lips (nasolabial lines) and corners of the mouth (marionette lines) form.

In addition, finer lines tend to occur in the skin over the cheek area due to lack of support. This has been likened to the look of a partially deflated balloon.

This is one of the treatments offered at Skin integrity which consistently receives excellent client satisfaction. Revolumising the ageing cheek restores a more refreshed and youthful look and shape to the face as well as helping support the lower face to reduce the severity of marionette lines and nasolabial folds. It can also help with finer lines over the cheek and around the eyes.


Dermal Filler can be used in this area to restore the natural volume loss that occurs with ageing.

Thick, long lasting dermal fillers are preferred. The process is relatively quick and well tolerated with only mild pain. The product is placed through several needle injection points on each side deep in the skin just over the bone.

Swelling is generally mild and settles quickly. The injected area may be slightly tender for a week or two. After a couple of weeks the product integrates into the normal skin tissues to give a very natural look and feel.

Longevity / Treatment Regime

Generally two syringes of thick dermal filler are recommended for initial treatment.  The volume of filler required may be less or more depending on the age and degree of volume loss of the client.  It is recommended that the client returns every 6 months for further treatment until the desired result is achieved. At this point most clients will require treatment every 12-18 months to maintain results.


Volume loss in the mid face leads to lack of support for the lower face. This causes formation of nasolabial lines and jowls. Eventually this will cause a tired, saggy and less youthful appearance.
