Mini Cheek Pop is more like a touch up to the original cheek augmentation, which is the full treatment. It's something that I might do, like, four months after the full cheek augmentation if there's a little bit more volume that is needed to help lift up the cheeks. Mini Cheek Pop uses Voluma injected into the lateral cheek to give the appearance of a more contoured face, and create overall facial symmetry. Mini Cheek Pop fills in the volume lost in the mid face and creates a contoured effect to the face. Mini Cheek Pop is typically for a touch up to the full cheek pop.
OK, so the instructions before getting dermal fillers are pretty easy. No alcohol consumption, 24 to 48 hours. That's going to thin the blood and you don't want anything that thins the blood because it can open you up to extra bruising. So, that also goes for NSAIDs. Another thing that you want to avoid before you get injections is any laser treatments or strong chemical peels on the skin for about two weeks.
So, post-op instructions are pretty simple. For 24 hours after getting injections, you want to avoid working out. You want to avoid saunas. And, you also want to avoid any kind of excessive laser treatments, chemical peels, or anything like that. You want to just basically take two days off. The only thing you want to be doing is icing the area that got injected.
