Cheek Filler

Cheek Filler is an injectable treatment that aims to restore lost volume to the area surrounding the cheekbone.

The application of dermal fillers to this area will not only enhance the facial volume, but will also smooth out fine lines and wrinkles giving a fresher, more youthful appearance to the face. Not just used as an anti-ageing treatment, this popular approach can also be used to help bring a more defined structure to the face, creating a more aesthetically pleasing profile.



What is Cheek Filler?

Cheek filler is an aesthetic treatment term for a type of injectable treatment that is used to improve the appearance of sunken or hollow cheeks. Cheek filler can be used to fill out the cheeks, give them a more youthful appearance as well as correcting folds and wrinkles caused by aging. By addressing volume loss in the cheeks, we can contour, lift and add shape while softening deep set lines near the nose to mouth and help lift the jowl area. 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 surgical procedures like facelifts when combined with other areas such as temples, jawline and chin.


Overall, by lifting and revolumizing parts of the face, 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

It is important to remember that any treatment that involves rupturing the skin may incur some mild discomfort. Most people find this treatment to be perfectly tolerable. Dr. Rupert is a highly experienced injector, and will always aim to ensure you are as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment. For people who have a low tolerance to pain or high levels of sensitivity, Dr. Rupert will apply a topical numbing prior to treatment, mitigating the chance of discomfort.

As with any injectable treatment, there is a possibility of some minor side effects. Most commonly, these may include: bruising, swelling, redness, tenderness, itching and sensitivity at the point of application. Rarely, cheek fillers may leave behind small lumps under the surface of the skin, If this occurs, please contact the practice as soon as you notice the onset of any lumps. This is so that Dr. Rupert can assess you, and dissolve the filler if necessary. This symptom is rare, but we believe it is important that our patients are fully aware of any potential side effects prior to treatment. All concerns and risks will be addressed at a pre treatment consultation.

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 Dr. Rupert will discuss the likely result with you, and ensure that you leave the clinic looking and feeling your best post treatment.

Although Cheek fillers are considered to be a safe and effective technique for enhancing facial volume and structure, we do not recommend the use of any dermal fillers for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. The safety and welfare of our patients is of the utmost importance to us. Cheek fillers should only be administered by highly qualified practitioners, and in our case, Dr. Rupert has exceptional facial anatomical knowledge which only enhances his skill level as an injector. We only use the most effective and safest products at VIVA Skin Clinics. To find out more about the Juvederm range, please click here
