what do cheek fillers do

Whether you realise it or not, using filler along the cheekbone is a very versatile cosmetic procedure, making it especially popular among first-time patients seeking filler. The goals of patients and the potential results that can be achieved are much more diverse than many think. Cheek filler, when administered by a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist, can be completely customised to your individual needs, goals, and facial structure. Read to learn more about what cheek fillers can do for you.

1. Refill Concave Temples in the Face

One of the most common complaints we see from patients is the loss of volume on either side of the face, where the cheeks would normally be fuller. This results from ageing, weight loss, or a previous surgical procedure. Depending on the cause, a cheek filler can be administered in small doses to replace the volume and make the cheek areas look as they did when they were younger.

2. Sculpt Smooth Cheek Contour Lines

The shape of your cheekbones can change dramatically over time. Think about your bone structure. Your bones have been affected by your eating, body weight, and lifestyle throughout your life. As you age, your bone structure begins to change. This can result in hollow cheeks, resulting in sunken accentuated brow lines.

A cheek filler will fill in the contour lines of the cheeks and give you the volume you need to see a smoother contour. The result is smooth, natural-looking cheeks that look as if they have naturally evolved along with some of the other changes you have experienced.

3. Help Treat Under Eye Shadows

Many people have puffy, baggy eyes that can make a face look tired, haggard and worn out, even if the rest of their skin is smooth and relatively wrinkle-free.

A cheek filler, applied in small amounts, can give the appearance of lifted cheeks that look more youthful and vibrant while bringing the eyes higher up on the face. This can significantly improve the balance of your face, giving it a more youthful, rested appearance.

4. Plump and Lift Laugh Lines

Laugh lines or wrinkles that appear when you smile can also be filled in with a cheek filler. Longevity, gravity, and repeated movements can create deep lines that make a face look old and tired. This can be a major concern for many people because this area of the face is often exposed when you laugh or speak. A cheek filler can be administered in a minimal amount to smooth out these lines, giving you a more youthful appearance.

5. Replace Contour and Highlighter Makeup

A good cheek filler can replace your contouring, highlighting and blushing. You’ll need just a small amount to fill in the hollows, making them look like they were already sculpted and highlighted by a makeup artist. This makes the cheek filler a great alternative to blush and spot contouring, which can be difficult to work with. Another benefit of a cheek filler is that it’s permanent, unlike blush, which fades over time.


A cheek filler can be a very powerful procedure. It can be customised to suit the patient’s individual desires, whether they are looking to fill in the temples of their face, correct the overall shape of their cheeks, or even out the contour of their cheeks. No matter your goals, a cheek filler can make them a reality.
