Cheek Fillers: Enhance Your Cheeks Without Surgery

Cheek Fillers: Enhance Your Cheeks Without Surgery

  • Cheek fillers are a non-permanent solution to improve the volume of cheeks without undergoing surgery.
  • The Breslow Center provides cheek filler treatments containing high-quality ingredients which blend with dermal tissue in the cheeks to produce a natural looking result.
  • Our injectors are licensed experts at optimizing cheek treatments to achieve your desired look.

Cheek fillers are dermal fillers injected into the skin to fill out wrinkles and creases. They enhance the roundness and fullness of the cheeks, helping to achieve the appearance of shapely cheekbones.

The main ingredients in cheek fillers are either calcium hydroxylapatite or hyaluronic acid. Calcium hydroxylapatite promotes the production of natural collagen, which forms fibers to provide structure. Hyaluronic acid is a lubricant produced by the body, which helps to keep tissues plump and hydrated.

The effect of cheek fillers is temporary, and therefore repeat visits are needed to revitalize the appearance of fuller cheeks once the treatment wears off. The use of fillers doesn’t involve any invasive surgery.

What Cheek Fillers Are For

Cheek fillers are a treatment for a loss or lack of volume in the cheeks. Volume loss can occur with aging. If cheeks appear sunken or jowly, then fillers can help bring youthful plumpness to the skin.

Some people have naturally thinner-looking cheeks which may benefit from improved contouring using fillers.

Are You a Good Candidate for Cheek Fillers?

Cheek fillers are for those who have sunken cheeks or loose skin around the jaw. If you’re looking for rounder, more shapely cheeks, fillers will help you achieve your desired results.

Before your consultation, you’ll need to answer a few questions about your medical history. It’s important to be open about any medical conditions you may have when answering these questions, as they help your injector determine the best treatment for your specific situation.

Dermal fillers may not be suitable for people with existing medical conditions such as diabetes or blood clotting disorders, which can impact the healing process.

You should inform your injector if you’re taking any medication or if you smoke. Either of these factors can affect blood clotting, which could cause changes to the texture of the face post-treatment.

You should also tell your injector if you have allergies or suffered any allergic reactions to filler treatments in the past.

Best Cheek Filler Brands

The cheek filler treatments we use at the Breslow Center are Radiesse and Juvéderm Voluma. Both are high quality fillers that have provided our patients with excellent results.


Radiesse is a thick, calcium-based volumizer which stimulates the body to produce more collagen. This helps to replace lost volume and smooths out deeper lines and wrinkles. Radiesse is both effective and safe.

Juvederm Voluma

Juvéderm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid-based filler treatment, formulated to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks. It provides lift in the mid-face area, helping to create a more youthful appearance. Juvéderm Voluma is also proven to be a safe treatment.

How Long Before I See Results?

The results will be visible immediately. However, because dermal fillers involve injecting deep under the skin, there may be some areas of bruising or swelling which will go down after a few days.

How Long Will Cheek Fillers Last?

The effects last up to one year using Radiesse and up to two years with the Juvéderm Voluma brand. If you want a permanent solution to enhanced cheek volume, surgical cheek augmentation might be a better option for you.

Why Should You Get Cheek Fillers at the Breslow Center?

The Medical Spa at the Breslow Center offers a range of non-surgical solutions to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. When you plan to undergo any kind of cosmetic procedure, selecting a clinical team you can trust is one of the most fundamental steps.

Our team of licensed medical aestheticians have years of experience helping people achieve their desired results using a combination of face and body treatments, permanent makeup, and skin care products.

Our patients provide consistently positive feedback about their experiences at the Medical Spa.

At your first appointment your injector will talk you through the various filler treatment options available to you. Our expert injectors will always recommend optimal levels of treatment to help you achieve naturally younger-looking cheeks. You’ll never have to worry about risking the “chipmunk cheeks” look that comes from over-filling the treatment area.


What should I expect during my cheek filler appointment at the Breslow Center?

The appointment takes approximately one hour. There will be a pre-treatment consultation with your injector, where you will discuss your medical history and the results you hope to achieve. Your injector will tell you what to expect and talk you through the after effects, at which point you’ll have the opportunity to ask them any questions you may have.

Will filler in the cheeks give me the dreaded ‘chipmunk cheeks’ look?

Not at all. “Chipmunk cheeks” result from using too much filler, over-inflating the cheeks, or injecting into the wrong areas of the face. At the Breslow Center your expert injector will administer just the right amount of treatment to the specific areas needed to achieve your desired look, without risking an overinflated or unnatural appearance.

How many syringes will I need?

This depends on a few different factors, including the extent of the problem and your desired appearance, but it can vary from one syringe to several in each side. Your injector will advise you on the amount of cheek filler treatment needed to achieve your desired results.

Is the cheek filler treatment painful?

There is a small sting with each syringe administered. Lidocaine is used as a mild anesthetic, and there may be some bruising afterwards.

Should I take any precautions before my appointment?

You shouldn’t take any blood-thinning medication like Aspirin and need to avoid nutritional supplements, such as various fish oils and multivitamins. Consuming any of these products can make bruising more likely.

What should I do after the treatment?

Post-treatment you may feel some numbness around the cheeks. Swelling usually occurs for the first one to two days after the appointment. Bruising is also common, although it normally disappears after approximately three days. Applying Arnica Gel to the site can help bruising heal more quickly.

Are there any alternatives to cheek fillers?

The Breslow Center also offers cheek augmentation, a surgical treatment for enhancing cheek volume.

Facelifts also address the problem of sagging skin throughout the mid-face, chin, jawline, and neck.
