Cheek fillers have been designed specifically to re-inflate cheeks from within and replacing missing soft tissue, thus filling out the cheeks, reducing fine-lines and also smoothing the surface of the skin to give you a fabulously youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do cheek fillers work? 11
As we grow older, the skin on the face loosens, loses definition and thus appears aged. Cheek fillers help to address these areas specifically. The procedure involves injecting a naturally-derived cheek filler gel into the soft tissue of the face, helping reverse the loss of face volume and reduce depressions in the skin. This in turn helps restore your face to its natural, youthful appearance.
Cheek fillers are a very effective way to improve the appearance, undertake contouring, and restore symmetry without having to undergo invasive surgery.
What do cheek filler do?
Cheek Fillers can be used for a number of different treatments. They are a good option for refining, reshaping and re-sculpting the natural contours of your face. Cheek fillers can also help to even out the skin surface surrounding any facial scarring (such as marks left from chickenpox or acne), add volume to areas of the face that appear drawn or sunken, and also improve texture, tone and elasticity of the skin. Well placed cheek fillers can also help make your face appear slimmer and more taut.
How long will cheek filler results last?
Cheek Fillers typically last for 6 to 12 months. Some patients can see results last for as long as 2 years after treatment. How long cheek fillers last is largely dependent on the level of muscle movement the area is subjected to – for example, a person with a more expressive face will typically require top-ups more frequently. Cheek fillers in areas such as the person’s cheeks and tear troughs under the eyes typically last longer than fillers in more active facial areas such as the mouth and lips. We recommend that patients should come to see us every 6 to 9 months to maintain the full effects of cheek filler treatments.
