Cheek filler is a safe, effective treatment suitable for both women and men of all ages. An anti-numbing cream is applied prior to treatment to minimize discomfort.
Fillers are utilized for various enhancement purposes, from camouflaging fine lines and increasing cheekbone prominence, to smoothing away fine wrinkles and augmenting cheekbones. Some providers also provide facial fat grafting – which provides long-term solutions compared to fillers.
Reduces the appearance of nasolabial folds
The nasolabial fold (commonly known as a smile line) is a deep crease that runs along either side of your nose to the corners of your mouth, connecting both nostrils. Caused by age-related changes and fat loss, its prominence becomes increasingly obvious over time.
Dermal fillers can help reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds by injecting filler directly into these areas. Injections are quick to perform and generally pain-free due to anaesthetic creams used during injection. This treatment is suitable for women and men alike of all ages.
Some practitioners may advise avoiding the nasolabial fold altogether in order to preserve natural volume and avoid creating an unnatural pillow-face look. This approach can be useful if you suffer from minimal nasolabial folds but wish to reduce their appearance.
When treating cheeks instead of nasolabial folds is more effective, an experienced practitioner can create a strategy of precise filler injections designed to minimise nasolabial folds while still maintaining an attractive facial balance and proportionateness.

Reduces the appearance of tear troughs
Tear troughs are hollow areas located underneath your lower eyelid and upper cheek, giving an tired appearance. Over time they become more apparent due to age or due to volume loss.
Tear filler can help reduce depressions in your eyes and provide a refreshed appearance, making you look less tired. But filler is not suitable for everyone – to ensure an optimal experience, always consult a qualified cosmetic injector who specializes in fillers as selecting an incorrect type may lead to lumps and unevenness in appearance.

Fillers can also help restore definition to cheekbones that has become lost with age, helping reduce wrinkles and lines that appear here. Our procedures are quick and effective with minimal downtime – any swelling or bruising will go away within 48 hours.
Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines
Cheek filler can help restore a more youthful appearance by quickly, comfortably and non-invasively filling fine lines and wrinkles in the cheek area. Treatment is quick, non-surgical and immediate after the procedure; immediately return to daily activities without waiting! Results typically last 18 months depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the filler; they’re reversible too if desired or removed using Hyaluronidase enzyme if no longer desired or desired changes must occur in appearance.
At times, loss of collagen and elastin can lead to flat, sunken cheeks that make one appear older and tired. Cheek filler can restore volume within the cheekbone area and improve under eye and smile line areas to give an aged but youthful appearance that’s balanced and defined.
At each treatment session, a topical numbing cream will be applied for comfort before injections are administered with either a needle or cannula. Please avoid drinking alcohol prior to your cheek filler session as this increases the chances of bruising and swelling.
At our practice, we customize cheek filler treatments based on your desired goals and facial proportions. For older patients, for instance, more structural fillers may provide lift and projection of cheekbones; younger individuals might benefit more from soft fillers that move with them when laughing or smiling.
Enhances the appearance of your cheeks
