If you are bothered by your low cheekbones or feel that your lack of cheek fullness makes you appear old or tired, you may be a good candidate for cheek fillers. Cheek fillers are designed to lift your cheekbones, add volume to the cheek area, and smooth lines and wrinkles for a more youthful and balanced appearance.
There are many different types of cheek fillers that can be used today. At our office we offer the following:
Was created to augment the cheek region. This filler can create definition and shape in the cheeks in adults over 21 years old. Results can last up to one year.

Healthy adults who would like to improve the shape or projection of their cheeks for a more youthful and healthier appearance can benefit from cheek fillers. However, you should not receive cheek fillers if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, are allergic to any of the ingredients used in dermal fillers or have been diagnosed with a bleeding disorder. To learn more about if this treatment is right for you, schedule a consultation at our office today.
Prior to your cheek filler appointment, you may be asked to avoid taking blood-thinning medications like aspirin. If you are taking prescription blood thinners, let us know before your appointment.
During treatment, your cheeks will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic applied to ensure you are completely comfortable during treatment. Then, the filler of your choice will be artfully injected into the cheek area to contour and add volume. This process can take anywhere from 15-60 minutes to complete depending on the amount of improvement needed.
Following your cheek filler treatment, you may experience temporary bruising, swelling, redness, or discomfort t the injection sites. Be sure to avoid putting pressure on your cheeks, and do not sleep on your cheeks. Also, avoid touching your face and keep your face as clean and dry as possible. We advise avoiding strenuous exercise for 48 hours after treatment. We will provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure you receive the best results.
