Beauty trends are changing all the time, as there is always a new fashion on the horizon. In 2021, we are set to see a focus on the upper third of the face, as mask wearing is our new requirement when out and about.
While many people think about the eyes and forehead when considering the features left on display when wearing a mask, we often don’t think about the cheeks. The upper sections of the cheeks are more prominent than ever when mask wearing.
Combined with the zoom effect, this is leading to many individuals choosing facial tweakments for this part of the face. Infinity cheeks are set to be the latest trend in 2021, but what are they, and how can you achieve them?
Infinity cheeks are a brand new trend and a term that the industry has never seen before. It refers to the area between the temple and hairline, where it is common to have lost volume and even sagging with age. Plumping out the temple area can naturally draw attention to the eyes, which are now the main facial features we have on display.
Infinity cheeks create the perfect contour of the face and continue on from the definition of the cheekbone. This look isn’t just about the cheeks themselves, but the lifted finish it creates for the eyes and brows. Infinity cheeks are looking to be the next big thing in the cosmetic surgery world, with many individuals choosing treatments to help achieve this beautiful look.
Infinity cheeks look beautiful and truly enhance the appearance of the eyes in a natural, subtle way. Achieving this look is actually very simple. Dermal filler can be delicately applied to the temple area to fill out the area between the hairline and the temple. With such a small area to be treated, only a tiny amount of dermal filler is needed to create subtle but significant results.
Depending on your skin, dermal fillers might be used alongside other treatments such as ULTRAcel. ULTRAcel can work to tighten the skin around the upper cheek area and target sagging skin. When used together, dermal fillers and ULTRAcel can create the perfect infinity cheeks, which are defined, toned and natural-looking.
Dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments around because they are super versatile, offer great results and are temporary. Dermal fillers are commonly used on the lips, jaw and forehead, but can also be used to create infinity cheeks.
With so many different types of dermal filler available, there are options for all areas of the face. Infinity cheeks require delicate, subtle dermal fillers, which are administered into the temple area.
Hollow temples and sagging skin in the area is often caused by a loss of volume and definition over time. Ageing causes the facial muscles to become more lax, and levels of elastin and collagen are depleted. Dermal fillers work to rejuvenate and plump these areas, creating natural and subtle results.
Because the area around the temple is fairly sensitive and the skin can be delicate, only a small amount of dermal filler is needed to create the infinity cheeks look. Too much dermal filler can leave the cheeks looking too full and unnatural, while not enough filler will not achieve the desired results. Because of the sensitivity and preciseness of the area, it is essential that you choose a specialist in dermal fillers to carry out the treatment.
Dermal fillers use biodegradable, vegan-friendly hyaluronic acid implants to plump out the skin and tissue. With over 300 different types of dermal filler available, it is essential that your treatment specialist chooses the best option for infinity cheeks.
Dermal fillers offer many benefits for the skin, including boosting collagen production and adding moisturisation. Over time, dermal fillers will naturally be absorbed into the skin, making them a temporary treatment option for infinity cheeks. This means you can choose to continue with the look by topping up the dermal filler or leave them to naturally fade over time.
For some patients, dermal fillers might be used alongside ULTRAcel to achieve the perfect infinity cheeks. ULTRAcel uses radiofrequency and ultrasound technology to penetrate deep into the skin tissue. It encourages the production of new, healthy skin cells, leaving the area tightened and toned. ULTRAcel can be used for those who have signs of ageing around the upper cheeks, such as hollow temples, sagging skin or wrinkles.
ULTRAcel works by targeting the specific areas using a handheld device. The ultrasound and radiofrequency technology is emitted deep into the skin and is completely pain-free. Some patients experience slight prickling during treatment, as well as the feeling of heat.
After treatment, results can be seen immediately and continue to improve for up to 6 months. The level of ULTRAcel treatment can be adjusted to suit each individual, and for treating the upper cheek area, a low dose is often all that is required.
When used in conjunction with dermal fillers, ULTRAcel treatment can leave the cheeks defined, smooth and rejuvenated.
Infinity cheeks are all about having sleek, contoured and youthful-looking cheeks right up to the hairline. To achieve this look perfectly, the skin needs to be free of lines, wrinkles and sagging. The dermal fillers work to provide volume and plumpness in temples, while ULTRAcel will tackle signs of ageing and refresh the skin from the inside out.
