Cheek Fillers Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas
Dermal filler injections have two main purposes: Helping to restore lost volume or adding volume to the existing anatomy. Cheek filler injections can do either one depending on the patient’s goals. Injecting filler into the cheeks can re-volumize the face after aging, or certain types of medical treatments. It may also help define a patient’s natural bone structure. Regardless of the patient’s goals, Botox Bar performs extremely skillful and precise cheek filler in Dallas and surrounding areas.
What Is Cheek Filler?
Cheek filler is a procedure that augments and defines the appearance of the cheeks with filler injections. Most commonly using hyaluronic acid fillers like Revanesse Versa+, injectors can achieve a variety of cosmetic results without surgery. The low risk procedure enhances bone structure as well as face shape, and can contribute to an overall younger, more refreshed appearance.

Types Of Cheek Fillers Dallas
Beyond the differing filler types possible to inject into the cheeks including Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra, and Radiesse, there are different cheek filler techniques that can create varying results. The two most common techniques focus on creating a specific cheek shape.
Apple Cheek Filler
The apple cheek technique focuses on injecting filler into the “apples of the cheeks.” This creates youthful and alluring roundness that more women especially are seeking out. It also helps to define the “triangle of youth.” This is a concept that the face gets slimmer as it moves downward. Therefore, your mid face should be wider than your jowls.
Injecting fillers into the apples of the cheeks helps to restore these ideal contours. For younger patients, it can help enhance the smile. Examples of celebrities with “apple cheeks” include Cameron Diaz, Halle Berry, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Lateral Cheek Filler
The lateral technique involves injecting filler further back onto the cheekbone. This can help slim the face and define the cheekbones. In the right candidate, cheek fillers can create stunning and sharp cheekbones. Men tend to have flatter cheeks in the apple area, but a more defined bone structure and jawline. This can be balanced by injecting filler into the lateral cheek area.
Women can also benefit from this technique if they have a particular bone structure. This filler technique may better suit younger patients looking for the intensely sharp cheekbone appearance that a patient can usually only achieve with contour.
Injecting Cheek Fillers
Using the chosen filler product—likely a hyaluronic acid filler for patients new to cheek fillers—the clinical injector will use either a needle or thin cannula to inject it into the cheeks. The exact location of the injection sites can vary depending on the results the patient wants and their anatomy. Generally, it will follow the natural slope of the cheekbone; either focusing on the lower and central part of the cheek (apple) or the higher part of the cheek (lateral).
The injections take around ten minutes. The clinical injector may gently massage the filler. This helps move it into the optimal position and may also help break up any lumps. The patient should not massage the filler after the injections. There is very little pain involved, as most dermal fillers contain a small amount of local anesthetic. Additionally, topical numbing creams are available. Patients tend to see results nearly instantly.
The amount of time that cheek filler lasts depends on the type of filler used. On average, patients can expect hyaluronic acid filler in the cheeks to last around six to twelve months. Other fillers such as Radiesse may last up to two years.
Some mild discomfort or the feeling of pressure is normal. Patients generally do not experience too much pain during cheek filler injections. The filler contains lidocaine and there are also skin-numbing agents that your clinical injector may utilize. As a non-invasive cosmetic procedure, any discomfort or pain is temporary and minor.
It can. Augmenting the cheeks can help raise hollowed under eyes slightly. While it will not fill them in, it addresses the loss of cheek volume which contributes to the formation of hollow tear troughs. Also, a small amount of cheek filler is sometimes used to support under eye filler injections and improve their overall appearance.
No, patients should sleep on their back following any facial filler treatment. Sleeping on your stomach or side can hinder cheek filler results and make the sides uneven or asymmetrical. Sleeping on your back promotes optimal settling of the filler and can help reduce swelling if the head is elevated.
Yes, if hyaluronic acid fillers are used, a clinical injector can dissolve the cheek filler at any time following the injections. This can help give patients new to the procedure peace of mind. Radiesse or similar fillers cannot be dissolved.
