Cheek Fillers Q & A

What are cheek fillers?

Cheek fillers are cosmetic injectable substances that add volume to your face and promote collagen growth. Peach Skin & Laser offers Radiesse®, a successful cheek filler that contains calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a biocompatible gel. 

The gel in Radiesse provides immediate volume while the microspheres provide a template for your own collagen to grow around. Over time, your skin absorbs both ingredients, leaving you with fully natural collagenous volume. 

How can cheek fillers enhance my appearance?

Cheek fillers can give you the illusion of having higher or more prominent cheekbones than you already have. They provide a lifting effect similar to a facelift, but without the surgery and downtime. Plus, the result is more subtle and is reversible. 

In addition to their lifting effect, cheek fillers can add general volume to your face. Sunken cheeks are a common feature associated with aging because you lose subdermal fat over the years. Well-placed cheek fillers can also reduce the appearance of some wrinkles and fine facial lines to contribute to a more youthful appearance.

What happens if I do not like my results?

If you try cheek fillers for the first time, you might find that you don’t love your new look. Thankfully, dermal fillers aren’t designed to last forever. With Radiesse, your results last no longer than two years. You might notice them diminish in as little as 12-18 months.

Hyaluronic acid fillers, a different type than Radiesse, are reversible using an injectable enzyme called hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase dissolves much of the hyaluronic acid in the filler to correct excessive or misplaced injections. Talk to your Peach Skin & Laser Provider for more information about hyaluronic acid fillers.

Am I a good candidate for cheek fillers?

Cheek fillers can make the subtle changes to your appearance that you imagine when you look in the mirror. However, not everyone is a suitable candidate for the treatment. Before you get cheek fillers, you’ll attend a consultation at Peach Skin & Laser. Good candidates for cheek fillers:

  • Are nonsmokers
  • Aren’t pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have no serious or chronic health conditions
  • Aren’t allergic to ingredients in cheek fillers
  • Are over 18 years old

If you’re still interested in exploring other possible treatments to meet your goals, there are plenty available at Peach Skin & Laser. Your provider can work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan.
