Your Cheek Fillers Guide: What You Should Know

For individuals seeking a more youthful look without surgery, today’s dermal fillers provide natural-looking, dramatic and lasting results; especially cheek fillers. What does cheek filler do? It enhances and rejuvenates the appearance of the cheeks with a minimally invasive procedure. Today, Medskincare Laser Centre is exploring what you should know in our ultimate cheek fillers guide.  

Discover the transformative benefits of cheek fillers and how they work to give you a more youthful and refreshed facial contour. 

What Are Cheek Fillers?

Dermal fillers like Juvéderm, Restylane and Stylage utilize hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the skin, making them a popular choice for cheek augmentation. During the procedure, the filler is carefully injected into targeted areas to replenish lost volume and address concerns like sagging or sunken cheeks. 

The key ingredient in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid due to its ability to attract and retain moisture. This contributes to the plumping effect for a natural-looking lift.

How Do Your Cheeks Impact Your Overall Appearance?

The appearance of your cheeks plays a crucial role in defining your overall facial aesthetics, which is why cheek fillers are so effective. Here’s what you should know about how your cheeks impact your look:  

  • Well-defined, voluminous cheeks contribute to a youthful and attractive look. 
  • Full, lifted cheeks are associated with a more vibrant and energetic appearance, while sagging or hollowed cheeks can convey signs of aging and fatigue.
  • Cheekbones that are strategically enhanced with fillers can create a harmonious balance, improving facial symmetry and contributing to a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. 
  • Ultimately, the contours and fullness of the cheeks significantly impact the overall balance and harmony of the face.

What Do Cheek Fillers Do?

Cheek fillers offer a transformative solution for individuals seeking to enhance their facial aesthetics. Here’s a brief guide to understanding the benefits and the significant role cheek fillers play in rejuvenating and defining the cheek area.

Restoring Volume

Over time, the natural aging process can lead to volume loss in the cheeks, contributing to a sunken or tired appearance. Cheek fillers, typically made from hyaluronic acid, work by restoring lost volume, providing a plump and youthful contour to the cheeks. This rejuvenating effect can create a more vibrant and refreshed overall facial look.

Lifting Sagging Cheeks

Sagging cheeks are a common concern associated with aging. Cheek fillers are designed to address this issue by providing a lifting effect. The strategically placed injections help lift and support the skin, diminishing the appearance of sagging and contributing to a more lifted and sculpted profile.

Defining Cheekbones

Cheek fillers are a valuable tool for enhancing facial structure and defining cheekbones. By precisely injecting fillers into targeted areas, practitioners can accentuate the natural contours of the face, creating a well-defined and aesthetically pleasing appearance. This enhancement contributes to a more balanced and harmonious facial profile.

What To Know About The Cheek Filler Procedure

At Medskincare Laser Centre, the process begins with a consultation where we discuss your aesthetic goals and assess your facial anatomy to determine the appropriate filler type and volume needed.

The treatment area is cleansed, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Using a fine needle or cannula, we strategically inject the dermal filler into targeted areas of the cheeks. The injection technique is crucial to achieving a smooth and natural-looking result.

After injecting the filler, we may massage and mold the product to ensure even distribution and a seamless blend with the surrounding tissues. Throughout the procedure, we continually assess the results, making adjustments as needed to achieve your desired outcome.


What Are The Primary Benefits of Cheek Fillers and Duration of Results?

Cheek fillers offer numerous benefits, including restoring lost volume, lifting sagging cheeks, and defining cheekbones for a more youthful appearance. The results are typically long-lasting, ranging from nine months and up  to two years, depending on the specific filler used and individual factors.

Is There Any Discomfort During The Procedure?

The procedure involves minimal discomfort, as many fillers contain a local anesthetic for a more comfortable experience. Plus, we can apply a numbing cream prior to treatment. Temporary side effects like swelling or bruising are common, but subside shortly after the treatment.

Can You Combine Cheek Fillers with Other Treatments?

Combining cheek fillers with other cosmetic treatments like Botox or Dysport is a common practice to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation. 

How Long After Filler Can I Fly In A Plane?

We suggest waiting the full two weeks prior to any travel plans as most serious complications occur a few days after your treatment if any is to happen. Due to increased pressure when we fly, this might prolong the recovery time, but definitely will not affect the results of your treatment.

Can I Do Filler If I Am Pregnant?

Over the years many women have done fillers then discovered they were pregnant. Although there have been no published studies on the safety of fillers on pregnant or lactating women. It is recommended to avoid them during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Can I Do Fillers If I Am On Antibiotics?

It is always recommended to consult your family physician dermatologist or the person doing your injectables if you are on any kind of medication or antibiotics.
