When we are young, our facial features naturally have more fullness, as our body is able to produce ample amounts of collagen that provide us with firm, voluminous and soft skin. Over the years this volume decreases and as a result, we lose the youthful and refreshed version of our physical appearance and look more older or even tired than we normally are.
When volume is restored to the face, especially the cheeks, a more youthful and attractive facial contour can be achieved. In addition to this, as the mid-cheeks support the lower eyelids, adding volume the cheeks will also lift as well as improve jowls and nasolabial folds and reduce the appearance of under eye bags.
Today, thanks to dermal fillers and specially formulated cheek fillers, it is possible to achieve a rejuvenated, youthful appearance and enjoy natural-looking results with fuller cheeks.
Who is Suitable for Cheek Fillers?
- Individuals who have lost volume in their cheeks over time and would like to contour and enhance them for a more youthful look.
- Individuals who want to restore the volume of their face after weight loss
- Younger individuals who have less facial definition and would like to improve cheek and face proportion
- Individuals who have under eye bags or lines with wrinkles on the cheeks
Application Method of Cheek Fillers
For the procedure, hyaluronic acid-based filling material, that is a natural constituent of the skin and stands out with its skin rejuvenating as well as reconstructive properties, is frequently used as a dermal cheek filler.
Following the application of a topical anesthetic cream, the filling material used in the procedure is injected into the subcutaneous supportive tissue. The amount of cheek filler required will vary from person to person. This may depend on the amount of volume loss and the degree of enhancement desired. After the treatment, which lasts around 15-20 minutes, the patient will be able to see immediate improvement and return to his/her everyday activities.

How Long do the Effects of Cheek Filler Application Last?
After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 6 to 12 months depending on the individual and the treatment.
