Cheek augmentation is a minimally invasive and injectable treatment that helps you achieve fuller and more youthful cheeks. As you grow older, the loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid from the cheeks leads to sagging skin and the loss of volume, making your face look hollow and gaunt. Cheek augmentation involves injecting specialized dermal fillers into the cheeks to add volume underneath the skin, making your cheeks look fuller and more voluminous.
What is cheek augmentation?
Cheek augmentation does the following:
- Make your cheeks look fuller and more voluminous
- Restore volume to the midface region
- Enhance volume in the tear troughs under your eyes
- Reduce the prominence of facial creases and wrinkles
- Enhance the contours of your cheeks
Benefits of cheek augmentation:
- Minimally invasive treatment — no implants, incisions, or scars
- Causes minimal discomfort during the treatment
- No harsh side effects or complications after the procedure
- Improves overall facial contours and appearance
- Reverses the signs of aging, such as facial wrinkles and creases
- No post-treatment downtime — resume your daily activities immediately
Your cheek augmentation experience at Skinology
Skinology performs a highly personalized cheek augmentation. Our medical providers examine your facial skin, discuss your goals, and review your medical history to curate a personalized treatment plan. They select the ideal dermal fillers for your specific needs, following which they calibrate the dose. After cleansing your facial skin, the medical provider carefully injects the chosen dermal fillers into targeted areas on your cheeks. The procedure concludes within 30-60 minutes.
We perform cheek augmentation with hyaluronic acid fillers and Sculptra injections
Skinology performs non-surgical cheek augmentation with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm and Versa. Our medical providers inject the appropriate dermal filler underneath targeted areas on your cheeks to enhance facial volume. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring and biocompatible gel that binds up to 1,000x its own weight in water. When injected into the cheeks, dermal fillers can make your cheeks look fuller, softer, and more youthful.
We also perform cheek augmentation with Sculptra. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, Sculptra encourages your body to produce its natural filler material — collagen. Sculptra is made of poly-l-lactic acid, a biocompatible component that encourages your body to produce collagen, a fibrous protein that reduces wrinkles and enhances facial volume. When injected into targeted facial tissues, Sculptra restores the facial volume you may have lost due to age-related factors, making your cheeks look fuller.
What are the side effects of cheek augmentation?
Cheek augmentation with dermal fillers involves minimal post-treatment side effects, such as redness, swelling, discomfort, irritation, itching, and bruising around the injection points. The side effects dissipate within a few days.
Is there any downtime?
Cheek augmentation with dermal fillers doesn’t involve any downtime. You may resume your daily activities and work immediately, but avoid strenuous workouts for a day or two.
When will I see the results?
Cheek augmentation with dermal fillers produces instant results. Your face will look smoother and fuller after the procedure, with gradual improvements as the side effects dissipate.
How long do the results last?
The results of cheek augmentation last for approximately 12 months, depending on the treatment area, chosen fillers, lifestyle factors, and how quickly your body metabolizes the filler.
