What is Cheek Filler?

Cheek filler also called cheek enhancement, is a cosmetic treatment that utilises dermal filler injectables to elevate the cheekbones, increase volume where there may be a deficit to the mid-face, and define and balance the facial features.

This treatment offers a temporary solution, with the results typically lasting between 8 to 18 months before they begin to fade. Over time, and influenced by other lifestyle factors, the injected filler material will gradually dissolve and metabolise into the skin tissue, returning the cheeks to their pre-treatment state. The administration of cheek filler is a relatively swift procedure, taking about 30 minutes to complete. To ensure a comfortable experience, a topical numbing cream can be applied to minimise discomfort during the injection process.

Why Do People Get Cheek Filler?

Individuals opt for cheek filler treatments for various reasons. As we age, the natural fat compartments in our faces diminish, causing a sunken appearance. Others may desire a more sculpted or chiselled look, balancing the proportions of their face. Others may have a natural flattening across the cheekbones and require more lift and projection. Cheek fillers offer a non-surgical solution to these concerns, providing a quick and effective way to regain the face’s youthful plumpness and contour.


  • Volume Restoration: Age or significant weight loss can lead to a loss of facial volume, particularly in the cheek area. Cheek fillers effectively restore this lost volume, reinstating a fuller and more youthful appearance to the cheeks.
  • Facial Balance: By augmenting the cheekbones, cheek fillers contribute to a harmonious balance among facial features. They can correct asymmetry, ensuring that the cheeks harmonise well with other facial structures.
  • Youthful Appearance: The procedure restores and can lift sagging skin. The enhanced volume and contouring result in a more youthful and revitalised facial appearance.
  • Immediate Results: One of the striking advantages of cheek fillers is the immediacy of visible results. After treatment, clients instantly observe a notable change in facial contour and volume.
  • Non-Surgical: Cheek fillers offer a non-surgical, minimally invasive alternative to more extensive surgical procedures like cheek implants or facelifts. This aspect appeals to those desiring enhancement with minimal downtime and less permanency.

How Much Does Cheek Filler Cost?

The cost of cheek filler is as unique as every face – there isn’t a one-size-fits-all ‘price’ for cheek, chin, jaw, or tear trough enhancements. The cost hinges on your existing facial features and the specific needs of your individual face. During your consultation, one of our Registered Nurses will assess your facial structure and discuss your aesthetic goals to determine the filler needed to achieve the desired outcome.

The guidance on how many millilitres of filler you require is a crucial part of tailoring the procedure to your needs and determining the cost. The pricing is often structured around the amount of filler used, which is measured in millilitres. Hence, a detailed consultation to evaluate your needs will provide a clearer picture of the cost involved.

Frequently Asked Questions

Like any cosmetic procedure, cheek fillers come with potential risks and side effects, including:

  • swelling
  • bruising
  • bumps that look similar to acne
  • hives
  • itchiness
  • redness
  • infection
  • or the rare possibility of an allergic reaction or vascular interruption

It can be beneficial to consult with a qualified medical professional who can provide personalised advice based on individual circumstances.

Cheek filler administration involves a series of small injections into targeted areas of the cheeks by a qualified practitioner. Prior to injection, a topical anaesthetic cream may be applied to numb the area, ensuring a comfortable experience for the patient. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes.

Recovery time is minimal. Some individuals may experience slight swelling or bruising, which usually subsides within a few days. Most people return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.

The longevity of cheek filler results varies among individuals but typically ranges between 8 to 18 months. In some individuals, results last up to 2 years or longer in rarer cases.

Your first cheek filler appointment is an educational and preparatory session as much as it is a treatment. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect:


We will thoroughly examine your face, discussing your treatment goals to understand your aesthetic desires. Based on this discussion, we’ll recommend the most suitable type of cheek filler for your needs. We might also suggest other cosmetic procedures that complement the cheek filler treatment for more holistic facial rejuvenation.

Medical History Review:

A crucial part of the consultation involves reviewing your medical history and obtaining a prescription from our medical doctor for this medical procedure. It’s imperative to share information regarding:

  • Allergies: Certain allergies may rule out the use of some cheek fillers.
  • Autoimmune Conditions: Conditions like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis can potentially complicate the treatment.
  • Gastrointestinal Conditions: If you have Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, there’s a rare chance of lumpy swelling post-treatment.
  • Medications and Supplements: Let us know about any blood thinners, or supplements you’re taking, as they can affect bleeding and bruising.
  • Previous Cosmetic Procedures: Past fillers and injections can influence the type and amount of cheek filler used.
  • Skin Conditions: Certain skin diseases or highly sensitive skin may necessitate avoiding cheek fillers.
  • Smoking: Healing may be slower if you smoke.
  • Transplants: Individuals with a history of organ or bone marrow transplants may face a higher risk of infections.
  • Vaccinations: Some vaccinations might cause swelling in conjunction with cheek filler treatment.

Discussion of Side Effects and Recovery

Our Registered Nurses will discuss potential side effects, the expected recovery timeline, and any necessary aftercare steps to ensure a smooth healing process.

Pre-Procedure Preparation

We may mark areas on your face to guide the injections and take pre-treatment photographs to document the ‘before’ state, which will later be compared to the ‘after’ results to evaluate the treatment’s effectiveness.


Although the actual injection process may not occur in the first appointment, once you proceed, it typically involves applying a topical numbing cream for comfort, followed by the administration of the cheek filler injections, which usually take around 30 minutes.

Post-Procedure Guidance

Before leaving the Studio, you’ll receive instructions on post-procedure care to minimise side effects and promote healing.

Embarking on a cheek filler treatment journey begins with a well-informed first appointment. It’s your opportunity to ask questions, understand the procedure, and set realistic expectations, ensuring a positive experience and satisfactory result.
