Your question about hamster cheeks
As we get older, sooner or later we get to deal with wrinkles, skin subsidence and skin blemishes. Hamster cheeks are the result of a sagging skin. More specifically, hamster cheeks are the result of a weaker jaw line. The tissue on the cheeks does not get the support it needs because of the weakening jaw line, causing the skin to sag to the chin with hamster cheeks as a result.
Treating hamster cheeks
Lifting facials and skin-tightening peels provide first aid for sagging. A Tixel treatment regimen can also help to restore the volume by actively putting your own collagen to work. The result of a TIXEL treatment regimen is usually visible after 3 to 4 months. When these treatments offer insufficient results, a filler treatment can improve the hamster cheeks. With a filler treatment the volume can be restored so you will look brisk again. Depending on the situation and the wishes, different types of filler treatments are possible. For example, KNAP Clinic works with, among others, hyaluronic acid fillers, Radiesse and Sculptra.
Thanks to fillers, the face can regain its volume and wrinkles become less hard and visible. As we get older, you see that on our face: wrinkles are formed, the skin becomes slacker and loses its volume. This can also change your facial expression. With fillers these specific places can be treated, so that the volume loss is filled up, as it were. Skin subsidence and wrinkles can be postponed by applying fillers and in some cases can even be prevented. KNAP Institute works with multiple types of fillers: hyaluronic acid (brands Restylane and Emervel), calcium hydroxyapathite (brand Radiesse) and poli-l-lactic acid (brand Sculptra).
The Tixel uses a new concept called Thermo-Mechanical Ablation. This means that a cup (1 cm2) with small titanium pins is shot against the skin very briefly. By means of a short contact time with the skin micro holes are made in the skin and heat is brought deep into the skin. A wound healing process is triggered by the small wounds.

Hifu is a unique treatment based on ultrasound to tighten the skin in a non-invasive way. As we get older we are faced with slackening of the skin. The collagen production decreases so that the skin looks less firm. The energy released in this treatment ensures that the collagen production gets a boost.
Using the MP2 technology, the Venus MP2 uses multipolar radiofrequency and magnetic pulses to generate heat response in the skin. This stimulates the skin’s natural regenerative capacity and allows the skin to contract, resulting in firming and wrinkle reduction. In addition, the neck and décolleté can also be treated with a unique head based on Vari Pulse technology.
