Cheek Fillers FAQs
Dermal fillers make use of a naturally-occurring molecule in the body. Called Hyaluronic Acid (HA), it’s designed to hydrate and nourish the skin. By replenishing lost HA, a dermal filler will lift, firm and fill the skin. Specifically for cheeks, it will restore volume and fullness, as well as provide structure for the mid-face.
In a nutshell, a cosmetic filler replaces lost Hyaluronic Acid. As we age, our bodies produce less of it. As a result, the elastin and collagen fibers that support the face aren’t properly nourished. This causes the scaffold of connective tissue underneath the skin to thin and weaken. Additionally, we lose fat in the face. As a result of this combination, visible signs of aging appear on the surface of the skin. Specifically, we develop cheek hollows, sagging skin, as well as deep wrinkles and folds.
The three main makers of cosmetic fillers are Juvederm (Allergan), Restylane (Galderma) and Belotero (Merz). They all offer a complete line of dermal fillers that are each designed to be effective for a different region of the face. Specifically for the cheeks, their filler options have a higher weight and viscosity of HA molecules. As a result, they offer a superior ability to provide a sturdy structure to the cheek area. Their thickest formulations are Juvederm Voluma, Restylane Silk and Belotero Volume. These represent the three go-to fillers for cheeks. However, it’s important to note that there are other fillers that might be right for you. In consultation with our on-site doctor, you can discuss your skincare concern and he will make a recommendation about what filler (or other treatment) is best to address it.
You will notice instant volume in the cheek and mid-face area following an injection. However, it can take up to a week to see full correction. Once a filler has reached full correction, it can last anywhere from six months to two years. However, these results depend on the individual filler, the quality of your skin to begin with, as well as your desired treatment outcomes. It’s important to note that the Voluma, Vollure, Volbella line from Juvederm is the only HA filler line that offers results that last up to two years.
How many syringes of cheek filler depends on how much correction is needed. In general, we suggest requesting a complimentary consultation, so that our doctor can assess your skin and determine how much cheek fillers will cost for you.
