The benefits of cheek filler include:

  • improved facial contour
  • reduction of stubborn extended crows’ feet
  • treatment of nasolabial lines at source
  • improvement in the jawline if it has been affected by sagging

What age of client benefits best from cheek filler?

My younger clients enjoy having improved facial contours whilst my older clients benefit from all of the above.

Which product?

Cheek augmentation typically requires either 0.5ml or 1ml bilaterally to achieve significant results. This treatment is usually with a DEEP dermal filler as these products are more viscous and will give a longer lasting lift to the overlying soft tissue.

Which technique?

There are various options when it comes to cheek augmentation; in terms of both injection technique AND product choice. Take a look at the technique I have adopted when using Dermal Revolution (DEEP). The important thing to remember when delivering this treatment is that whilst usually hyaluronic acid is used to augment SOFT TISSUE, cheek filler involves augmentation of the bone- specifically the zygomatic arch. Some practitioners will augment anterior to the zygomatic arch but my preference is to focus on the arch itself as a safer and more aesthetically pleasing option. The technique involves depositing dermal filler on the surface of the cheek bones.
