Everything to know about cheek fillers


The beauty and cosmetic industry has changed a lot in the past two decades. With this in mind, fillers have become one of the most desired aesthetic fixes for women. The reason is that they are minimally invasive. After getting filler where you want it, the result is regained volume, better contour, and a rested and radiant look. While there are many places on the face where fillers can be used, the cheeks — the cheekbones — are by far the most popular.

Cheek fillers are used to create the appearance of high cheekbones. However, as with other similar procedures, there may be some side effects such as bruising, swelling, and swelling. For those willing to undergo such facial changes and try cheek fillers, it is best to know ahead of time what to expect from the procedure and post-processing time.

What are the benefits of cheek fillers?

The main benefit of cheek fillers is that they help correct visible signs of aging. This is particularly relevant for volume loss in this part of the face. Due to the natural aging process, the skin loses fat, which makes the face appear plump. This loss can lead to stretching and sagging, as well as the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. All of this creates a much older look. In this case, the filler replaces the volume of the superficial and deep fat deposits. Another great benefit of cheek fillers is that they can help eliminate under-eye voids.

What are the different types of cheek fillers?

There are many different fillers available on the market today. It always depends on what effect you want to achieve.

Hyaluronic acid filler

Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most common type of fillers. It could be a good option for people who want to work on skin texture and treat acne scars and puppet lines. These fillers can last from 6 to 18 months, and the effects are not permanent.

Permanent filler

Permanent fillers can be used for the same purpose as hyaluronic acid fillers. The only difference between the two types is the longevity. However, some side effects and complications with the use of this filler have been reported.

Collagen Stimulating Fillers

Polylactic acid fillers are synthetic fillers. It stimulates the body's own collagen production. After a few months, the visible effects of this filler become visible.
