As we age, beginning in our 30s and 40s, our skin begins to lose volume, elasticity and thus wrinkles and fine lines begin to form. There are specific dermal fillers that can lift the cheeks, tighten the jawline and restore lost volume. Cheek fillers can help sculpt and add youthful plumpness to the skin and here are a couple of popular cheek fillers:
Juvederm Voluma: The First FDA-Approved Cheek Filler
Juvederm is a popular line of dermal fillers that are created by Allergan the makers of Botox. Juvederm is comprised of hyaluronic acid and Juvederm Voluma is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid cheek filler that has been approved. Patients can see results of Voluma immediately and results last up to 18 months. Voluma can be used to tighten the jawline and improve the appearance of jowls.
Fill and Lift with Restylane Lyft:
Restylane Lyft is another brand of dermal filler that is composed of hyaluronic acid. Lyft can be used effectively to lift the cheeks for a more youthful appearance and results last 9 to 12 months.
Radiesse: A Unique Approach to Cheek Enhancement
Radiesse is comprised of calcium hydroxyapatite and this product triggers your own body’s collagen production. This dermal filler is highly effective for correcting mid-face volume loss/drop, general deep lines, nasolabial folds; defining the contours of the nose, chin, jaw, and cheeks; and giving a natural facelift when injected into the jowls. With Radiesse patients see results immediately.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
Which cheek fillers work the best?
There is no single approach and every patient is different. Depending on the consultation, facial structure and skin condition, your health care provider will determine which cheek filler will provide you with great results.
What other areas can dermal fillers be used?
Nasal labial folds (smile lines), lips, chin, lines above the upper and lower lips, marionette lines, underneath the eyes, hands, correct facial asymmetry, fill acne scars
How much do cheek fillers cost?
Every filler has a different cost per syringe and the amount of filler used per patient also varies. This makes it difficult to provide an estimate without a personalized consultation. We invite you to call our practice for more information about pricing and schedule a consultation to get an exact quote for your treatment.
How can I save on cheek fillers?
While we don’t recommend selecting a treatment or practice based on cost alone, there are ways to save on cheek fillers and other aesthetic injectable treatments. For Juvederm Voluma and other Juvederm fillers, patients enjoy savings by joining the Brilliant Distinctions© Program. This is a service provided by Allergan, the makers of Botox and Juvederm. With each purchase of Botox, Juvederm, and even SkinMedica products and Latisse, you are able to collect points and bonus offers. This allows you to save on future treatments. Galderma, the makers of Restylane, provide a similar program known as ASPIRE Rewards.
