 Cheek filler is a popular treatment for many patients as it addresses a wide range of concerns and is often a non-surgical alternative to plastic surgery like facelifts when combined with other areas such as templesjawline and chin. In this article learn more about this popular dermal filler treatment, what cheek filler is, who is suitable and what to expect from cheek filler treatment. Cheek filler starts from £375 per ml.


Cheek filler is a cosmetic treatment term for a type of injectable treatment that is used to improve the appearance of sunken or hollow cheeks. Cheek fillers are performed using dermal fillers made of  Hyaluronic Acid, a gel like substance that is commonly found in the human body. By injecting dermal fillers into the cheeks it can restore and improve lost volume that occurs from aging and other lifestyle factors. Cheek fillers are a common dermal filler procedure for patients concerned with looking tired, saggy or heavy in the face. Cheek fillers can help add natural contours and lift to the face restoring natural beauty and help improve common signs of aging.




Cheek fillers work by adding hyaluronic acid fillers in the cheeks, giving them a more youthful appearance as well as correcting folds and fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging. Cheek filler includes improving volume loss in the cheeks, improving cheek contours, lift and add shape while softening nasolabial folds and help lift the jowl area.  By injecting dermal filler into the cheeks it helps restore face shape, symmetry and soften nose to mouth lines as well as giving a youthful appearance to the face.


With all hyaluronic acid filler injections their is a risk of infection at the site of the injection as well as vascular occlusion. At VIVA we only perform cheek filler procedures with our highly skilled team of doctors and nurses using CE approved filler for safety. Filler injections are a cosmetic procedure, so a medical review and a face to face consultation is required.




There are many benefits of Cheek filler and the benefit will vary depending on your aesthetic goals. Before any aesthetic treatment its important to consider other aging factors or areas of the face that can help improve the overall appearance for a holistic approach to aging.

Benefits include:

  • Defined Cheekbones
  • Improved Facial Symmetry
  • Add lift, definition and contour helping restore a more youthful appearance.

By lifting and re-volumizing the cheeks, cheek fillers can dramatically improve your overall appearance and make you look younger and more refreshed. Cheek fillers are ideal for patients with mild to moderate facial sagging and skin laxity who are looking for a natural result with minimal downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cheek fillers are administered with a needle; therefore, this involves a degree of discomfort. However, we ensure this procedure is as pain-free as possible with topical anaesthetic, effective products with lidocaine and advanced injection techniques. We use both cannula and needle for cheek fillers.

Due to the nature of injectable treatments, there is a possibility of some minor side effects, most of which subside up two-four weeks after treatment. Common side effects include: 

  • Mild swelling and bumps.
  • Localised tenderness.
  • Skin blemish or bruising.
  • General sensitivity and redness.

Any potential side effects will be discussed during your consultation with a member of the VIVA team.  


Having treated hundreds of thousands of patients in over ten years of opening our doors at VIVA, you can have peace of mind that your safety is our priority.

Everybody’s face is different. We are all wonderfully unique, and it is therefore impossible to state exactly what the final result will be without having assessed you. However, we can note that the purpose of cheek fillers is to add volume and enhancement to the face to help smooth out wrinkles and plump the area surrounding the cheekbones, as well as to define and give the illusion of a greater bone structure.


Depending on the desired result, at your consultation our practitioners will discuss the likely result with you, and ensure that you leave the clinic looking and feeling your best post treatment.

Our aesthetic practitioners are medically trained and supervised by our medical director, Dr. Rupert, who has over 12 years of experience. Our clinically trained practitioners are trained regularly on the latest techniques to ensure that treatments are performed with your comfort and safety as a priority. 


We only use the most effective and safest FDA-approved products at VIVA Skin Clinics. Before any treatment we require a full medical consultation to understand your suitability. We would never recommend a treatment for you if we deemed it to be unsafe or dangerous, so we always keep your best interests in mind. 

There are many dermal filler brands available, and our patient’s safety is our top priority, therefore we use only the safest, most premium dermal filler products. This is why we at VIVA Skin Clinics are proud to use the FDA-approved JUVÉDERM® VYCROSS range, one of the most renowned and reputable brands on the market.


For Cheek Fillers, we use JUVÉDERM VOLUMA.

Cheek fillers are performed using an injectable dermal filler that containts hyaluronic acid a substance that is administered under the skin. They can be used to restore volume-loss, create definition, enhance features and soften fine lines and wrinkles.


There are a number of different filler products on the market but at VIVA Skin Clinics we choose to use FDA approved, premium products from the Juvéderm Vycross range. The Juvederm Vycross range is hyaluronic acid (HA) based and considered some of the safest products available. Juvederm fillers break down naturally over time and are non-permanent.

Most dermal fillers tend to fall within the 6 to 18-month range, however, the expected longevity of your fillers will also vary from person to person. The general ‘rule of thumb’ when it comes to cheek filler longevity is 9-12 months.


The exact longevity might change based on the volume of filler used, the precise areas being treated as well as the patient’s metabolism and lifestyle. However, our injectors will be happy to discuss specifics at your consultation.

Initial results will be visible as soon as you leave the clinic, however, it will take up to four weeks for the filler to integrate and settle under the skin for final results. 

Maintaining your dermal fillers and increasing the longevity of your results can be achieved in a few ways. To ensure that you get the most from your filler treatment we recommend a combination of the following:

  • Maintaining a healthy skincare routine, minimising exposure to UV radiation.
  • Eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated.
  • Avoiding stress, as this will accelerate the signs of ageing.
  • Follow the recommended aftercare provided by our practitioners.
  • Using medical grade skincare.
  • Attending recommended maintenance appointments. 

While dermal filler is a highly accessible treatment, we screen for suitability and only treat patients who are 21 years old and older. 


We specialise in full-face dermal fillers and have a proven method that carefully targets key anti-ageing zones, making each treatment as unique as the individual while ensuring natural looking results.
