Cheek Fillers

What are Cheek Fillers?

When your cheeks lack fullness, it takes away from the refreshed and youthful appearance that we all desire. The apples of your cheeks make your skin look smoother, but when you lose volume in the prominent areas of your face, fine wrinkles may be emphasized and leave you looking tired or sullen.

While makeup cannot add plumpness or fullness to your cheeks, fillers sure can. Cheek fillers are a non-surgical and simple injectable that creates natural fullness while restoring smoothness. Whether you want to add volume to your cheeks or contour your face shape, here is why cheek fillers can provide a beautiful and subtle enhancement.

What Are Cheek Fillers?

Cheek fillers are injectables that are administered to the area surrounding the cheekbones. The purpose is to improve the plumpness, lift and volume of cheeks that may appear sunken and make us look tired. Dermal fillers for your cheeks can also add definition to your face. The correct use of fillers can provide the following aesthetic benefits:

  • Lifts the cheeks
  • Restores lost volume
  • Creates definition
  • Adds facial symmetry
  • Provides a subtle, natural-looking enhancement

Why Do I Need Dermal Fillers?

If you look at your skin and notice a lack of fullness across your cheeks or the absence of defined cheekbones, then dermal fillers can help restore what is lost. A lack of contouring and plump cheeks can make you feel aged, but fortunately fillers can provide volume and shape for a youthful appeal. Along with creating a refreshed appearance, fuller and wider cheekbones can enhance the shape of your face.

Fillers are ideal for older patients who have lost bone density and fat in the cheekbones leaving an aged and sunken appearance. Cheek fillers can lift the tissue around the cheekbones to create projection and lift, leaving you feeling and looking as youthful and vibrant as ever.

Dermal fillers are also non-invasive and do not require long periods of recovery. It is a great way to look younger and sharpen your facial features that will appear completely natural. Cheek fillers can also improve facial symmetry, creating a harmonious balance while enhancing one’s facial beauty. It is a suitable alternative to cheek implants for those who want a less permanent cosmetic solution.

How Do Cheek Fillers Work?

The tissues surrounding the cheekbones consist of fat, elastin and collagen. Still, over time, and with the natural aging process, we can lose much of our skin’s elasticity while collagen production slows down. This contributes to the loss of fullness you may notice across your cheeks. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which helps restore collagen while drawing water into the target areas of the face. This creates plumpness, smoothness, and natural facial contouring.

Along with the volumizing effects of cheek fillers, it is also applied to lift droopy cheeks or sunken areas of the face. Individuals with a round face shape who desire a more angular look can receive injectables to widen the cheekbones without surgery.

What Can I Expect During Treatment?

At Bayside Cosmetic Medicine Clinic, our expert cosmetic doctors and nurses will examine your skin and discuss your concerns before proceeding with injectables. Once your goals for filler are determined, a topical anaesthetic is applied to the target sites and the filler administered.

Is It Safe to Have Cheek Fillers?

Yes, it is a non-surgical way to contour the face and to add fullness to the cheeks. You should allow up to 10 days for any inflammation and swelling to subside. The best results can be noticed within a month from the initial application. Simply refrain from swimming or heavy exercise for 24 hours and treat mild bruising with ice.

How Long will My New Cheeks Last?

Cheek fillers can last up to 12 months, depending on the type of filler and general care. When you notice your plumped cheeks are losing volume, simply schedule an appointment with us for review and to determine if more filler is needed. Each cheek filler’s lifespan is individual and is dependent on the type of filler used, the area where it is injected and your metabolic rate. As the fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid naturally present in your body, your body recognizes the dermal filler and slowly degrades it over time.
