In this guide, we will summarise what you need to know about dermal cheek fillers before seeking treatment, and the importance of finding an appropriately qualified clinic.

How long do dermal cheek fillers last?

After treatment, dermal cheek fillers can last anywhere between 6 and 12 months; all depending on the age of the client and the dermal cheek filler product used. As there isn’t as much movement in the cheek area, dermal cheek fillers tend to last longer than other facial fillers, such as lip fillers.

How long does the recovery take?

Once the hyaluronic acid fillers have been administered by a medical professional, patients can expect to see results immediately. However, there will be swelling and bruising around the injection site, which will subside within a few days. To help speed up the recovery process, make sure you stay hydrated, and avoid drinking alcohol and taking any blood-thinning medications.

What are the benefits of dermal cheek fillers?

As they are temporary and non-invasive, dermal cheek fillers are a good alternative to cheek implants and other plastic surgery procedures. Cheek fillers have several benefits, including:

  • Good contouring results
  • Requires little anaesthesia
  • Quick recovery
  • Long-lasting results
  • Low risk of complications

What facial concerns can cheek fillers address?

As our body ages, collagen production begins to decrease, and hyaluronic acid breaks down. This can lead to sagging skin, and other facial problems. Dermal filler treatment helps address these issues by adding hyaluronic acid back into the skin. Dermal cheek fillers can help with:

  • Undefined cheekbones
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scarring

Cheek Concerns

When seeking dermal cheek filler treatment, it is vital to research the clinic beforehand. As non-invasive treatments are underregulated in the UK, this results in underqualified practitioners administering dermal cheek fillers, despite not having sufficient knowledge.

After winning the “Clinic of the Year Award” in 2019’s Safety in Beauty Awards, and delivering over 65,000 treatments, Dr Nyla’s Medispa clinic is the largest and the only Diamond Premier clinic outside of London.

How much dermal filler is required in the cheek area?

Most dermal cheek filler brands will measure and sell their syringe products with 1 ml of filler. This filler injection treatment is applied to the cheek area, such as along the cheekbone and lower in the face to address nasolabial folds. The hyaluronic acid filler will be applied in small amounts, and injected via fine needles or cannulas.

Which factors determine how much filler you will need for your cheeks?

Certain factors may determine how much filler you will need in the cheeks for a natural appearance, which can be addressed by your cosmetic doctor. These include:

  • How deep the wrinkles are.
  • How much volume the face has lost.
  • Your specific face shape and features.
  • The type of filler treatment.

However, there is no set amount for every patient, and it is important to book a consultation with a medical practitioner who will be able to better judge how much cheek dermal filler you will need.

What are the different types of dermal cheek fillers available?

The most common type of dermal filler is hyaluronic acid filler (or HA filler). Hyaluronic acid encourages lubrication and is found in the skin; however, its production decreases over time. Cheek fillers are injected into strategically placed facial areas to reintroduce hyaluronic acid back into the skin; adding volume to the skin and helping smooth any fine lines or wrinkles.

Different types of hyaluronic acid fillers are available, and it is up to the practitioner’s skill and knowledge to decide which type will be the most suitable.

The types of HA fillers for the cheeks include:

  • Juvéderm: products include Juvederm Vycross and Juvederm Ultra Range which address wrinkles and nasolabial folds.
  • Restylane: products include Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne which helps reduce marionette lines in active faces.
  • Belotero: products include Belotero Balance and Belotero Volume which add volume to the cheeks and nasolabial folds.
  • Teosyal: products include Teosyal Ultra Deep and Ultimate range to restore volume in the cheeks.

The type of dermal filler used in the cheeks will be determined by the medical practitioner in the consultation. They will ask various questions and assess your suitability for the treatment to find the best product specifically for your needs.
