Achieve Rounder, Fuller Cheekbones With Facial Fillers

Hollowed, flattened cheekbones can make us look more tired and older than we truly feel. These sagging features and deflated contours can negatively impact our self-confidence. Cheek filler restores lost volume and enhances your natural cheekbones for a youthful, beautiful appearance.

Restoring Your Natural Contours With Safety In Mind

It is important to put your faith — and your face — in the hands of an injector who has been trained in facial aesthetics and understands how the face moves, changes and ages for the best result. You will be much better off choosing an injector you are confident in than having a poor treatment done that needs to be remedied and then corrected!

We are a team of clinically-minded providers who place your health and safety above all else, which sometimes includes the use of ultrasound technology to ensure optimal placement of filler. You will never be sold an unnecessary treatment, and we are not afraid to say no if the potential risk outweighs the potential reward.

Frequently Asked Questions

A cheek augmentation involves the use of dermal hyaluronic filler to add or restore lost volume in the midface due to aging to create a more rounded and youthful appearance. When performed by any of our qualified injectors, cheek filler is a quick, safe and virtually painless treatment – and the results are immediately visible.

Facial bone structure changes, soft tissues deflate and fall due to gravity, and skin sags naturally as we age. Our facial fat pads shift and lose prominence, while the fat pads beneath the chin become more noticeable. This fullness between the neck and chin is commonly known as a double chin or “jowling.”

The cheek’s fat pads are just as important as our bone structure in contributing to the shape and overall youthfulness of the face. Thicker, more structural fillers can be used in deep tissues to compensate for loss of bone volume while thinner, more plumping fillers can be used to replace fat volume that we had in our youth. The effect is a more youthful and healthy-looking visage.

Cheek filler is an ideal solution for those looking to maintain those youthful facial curves. This is also an excellent option for patients who are starting to see some common signs of aging through the middle of the face and are looking to prevent further laxity.

Because increasing volume adds another light source to the upper part of the face (much like makeup highlighter does), cheek filler can certainly work well for the younger population. There is no ideal age for this treatment because every age demographic can usually benefit from increased curvature in the midface.

Midcheek Filler Is An Excellent Option For Almost All Patients 

If you are someone who is seeing signs of aging and you wish to minimize them, cheek filler is an excellent place to start because it addresses not only midface volume, but also facial symmetry, undereye hollowness, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and sagging in the lower face (also known as “jowels”).

The cost of filler varies depending on the area we are treating and the amount of product needed for the desired results. A syringe of filler typically costs somewhere between $700 and $900.

In the hands of an experienced injector, cheek augmentation tends to be a straightforward and low-risk procedure. However, as with any injectable treatment, there are risks associated with the use of dermal filler. The most common risks include bruising and swelling at the injection site, and temporary discomfort during the procedure and in the days following. Inflammation and bumpiness are also possible side effects. More serious complications, such as vascular occlusion or involvement, are possible but very uncommon.

It is crucial that your licensed injector recognizes these risks and has educated you on the procedure. And remember: Filler can also be dissolved by your injector through the use of a hyaluronidase solution.

Learn More About Fillers & Their Safety

Because cheek filler is mainly use to volumize, we typically use a heavier, more viscous filler in those areas. Products like Voluma, Radiesse, and RHA 4 are hyaluronic fillers scientifically developed to be more robust in order to create structure in the areas that need it. The reason we want to use these stronger fillers, as opposed to something like Volbella, is due to the viscosity and the structure of the molecules themselves. These volumizing fillers are manufactured to not be as pliable, so they hold their shape to give the midface definition.

Sometimes, softer fillers like RHA 2 or 3 or Vollure may be added to create some natural curvature in addition to a more structured filler. Your injector may recommend a customized combination of differently structured fillers for an end result that looks most natural and moves dynamically.

When you meet with your injector, you will first talk about the areas that most bother you and anything you are unhappy with. They will discuss your different treatment options, what products they think will be best for you and any possible risks associated with treatment. Once you have had your consultation, you will have the option to go ahead and receive your treatment the same day.

The Details Truly Matter To Our Team 

Before receiving cheek fillers, your injector may take before pictures, take measurements or mark your face for treatment. Your bone structure, facial musculature and facial fat distribution are all taken into account before a needle is even introduced to your appointment. Once this planning step is complete, your injector will prepare your filler and may apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. They will explain to you each step they will take and what you will feel during your treatment, and then you will be injected.

No Downtime, Immediate Results

When your treatment is done, you will be able to see your results right away and ask your injector to make any necessary refinements. You will be given an ice pack to reduce possible swelling and you have the option to purchase an arnica gel to help with any possible bruising. Aside from that, there is little to no downtime for cheek fillers — you can return to your daily life and resume normal activity after your treatment.

Cheek filler can last anywhere from one to two years on average, at which point your body will naturally begin to break it down and it will dissolve over time. Fillers break down due to two factors: the natural hyaluronidase in our bodies that metabolizes it, and the dynamic movements of our bodies that degenerate it.

Cheek fillers typically last longer than others due to their manufacturing, and due to the nature of our cheeks’ limited movement. Maintaining good skin health and minimizing pressure on the face can also help to extend the life of your cheek filler.
