As we age, our body’s natural fat begins to deteriorate. This results in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles, and a reduction of volume. Fillers can rejuvenate the cheek and mid-face area to help correct the deflated cheeks, accentuate and add contour to them, as well as lift and improve other areas of your face! The best fillers for the cheeks are Radiesse, Restylane Lyft, or Juvederm Voluma because of how supportive they are. We hate to generalize, but almost everyone could use cheek filler at some point in their life. If treated at the first signs of facial heaviness, you can prevent facial fat pad deflation and the dropping of the jowls.
Cheek filler uses the injections of dermal fillers such as Radiesse, Restylane Lyft, and Juvederm Voluma. During the treatment, small volumes of the filler are injected at several places along the cheek bone. This process changes the contours of the area by filling in the skin from the inside out, as well as restore volume to the apples of your cheeks. The result are cheeks that looks more prominent and sculpted. The process is quick and virtually painless. Little to no downtime needed, as you should not get much swelling in this area and bruising is minimal. The results will last up to 12 months (individual results may vary).
Radiesse ($700/syringe): Radiesse is smooth and gel-filled, with tiny calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres used to treat volume loss in face and hands. When injected, it adds immediate volume and correction while the microspheres act as a scaffold, stimulating your body to produce its own, natural collagen. Since Radiesse is not a Hyaluronic Acid Filler, it cannot be dissolved. With that said, Radiesse injections should only be performed by an experienced and highly skilled injector.
Restylane Lyft ($700/syringe): Restylane Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face and hands. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks, midface area, and the back of the hands to help complete your aesthetic look. Restylane Lyft can last 9-12 months, although individual results may vary.
Juvederm Voluma ($900/syringe): Juvederm Voluma is an FDA-approved injectable gel for the cheek area to add volume lost to aging. It can create contour and add a subtle lift instantly. Containing a modified hyaluronic acid (HA), Voluma is a nonsurgical treatment that provides natural-looking results. Voluma has been proven to last up to 2 years, however individual results may vary.
