Looking to enhance your cheekbones in a minimally invasive way with natural results? Hyaluronic acid fillers are the answer. Hyaluronic acid microinjections are a popular treatment for plumping the cheeks, a part of the face where the signs of ageing are most noticeable. Read on to find out more about hyaluronic acid cheekbone fillers, including the benefits, treatment results and a series of FAQs.

Cheek filler and augmentation with hyaluronic acid

What is a cheekbone filler with hyaluronic acid? 

Cheek fillers are among the most popular hyaluronic acid filler treatments. The procedure involves injecting a hyaluronic acid gel active ingredient directly into the cheeks. This safe treatment uses a biocompatible form of hyaluronic acid that works like the hyaluronic acid found naturally in our bodies, which gradually depletes as we age1. Therefore, hyaluronic acid fillers are a highly recommended and effective solution to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin.

Benefits of hyaluronic acid cheek fillers

This procedure maximises all the beneficial effects of hyaluronic acid by targeting an area of the face where the signs of ageing are most visible:

  • It restores volume, elasticity and firmness to the skin of the cheeks. The amount of collagen and elastin in our body diminishes over the years, resulting in thinner and looser skin. Fillers help to restore density and volume in the targeted area.
  • It works by tightening the cheekbones, helping to lift the lower two-thirds of the face, reducing expression lines around the mouth and providing support to the periocular area. Enhancing the projection of the cheekbones results in a fuller and more youthful complexion.
  • As the active ingredient is injected, the improved volume and firmness of the cheekbone skin are far superior to the results obtained with conventional topical solutions2.
  • It adds volume naturally without leaving your cheekbones looking overly prominent.
  • What's more, the effects are lasting but not permanent. Therefore, if you are not satisfied with the results, you can rectify your appearance with hyaluronidase3.
  • The procedure is straightforward and does not require hospitalisation or postoperative care. In fact, you can resume your normal life within a few hours.
  • It is quick and almost painless (only anaesthetic cream is needed), and the results are instant.
  • The treatment is generally effective, tolerated, and well-received by patients4

For the best results, always see a professional specialising in fillers with the highest quality hyaluronic acid.

Read on for the answers to some of the most common questions. 

Are there any side effects?

If the filler is performed by medical professionals with adequate knowledge and experience, the side effects (if any) are typically very mild. You may experience minimal discomfort, swelling, redness or bruising. Consult your GP if any side effects remain after 7 days. 

What should I do after treatment? 

Avoid make-up, excessive exposure to the sun, artificial and natural light sources, saunas and swimming pools for the following 2 or 3 days. Use sunscreen and sleep on your back to minimise any deformation of the hyaluronic acid.

How long will the results last? 

The effects of mesofiller® generally last between 9 and 12 months, depending on the amount of product used and the area treated. En general, mesofiller® dura de media entre 9 y 12 meses, dependiendo de la cantidad usada y la zona a tratar. 

How quickly will I see the final results? 

The overall effects are visible straight after having the treatment. However, you may have to wait up to a week to see the final cheek enhancement results once any swelling or bruising has subsided.
