But what exactly are they and how much do dermal fillers cost? Here's everything you need to know.

 

What are cheek fillers?

"Cheek fillers" is an expression which encompasses a whole range of products and substances. In layman's terms, it is a cosmetic treatment that is designed to add volume, contour the face and rejuvenate.

Dermal fillers help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. They are also used to re-introduce structure and volume.

 

How much do dermal fillers cost and how long do they last?

The price of dermal fillers depends on the area treated, as well as the amount of product used.

Another factor which determines the price is the complexity of the procedure. Cheek fillers do tend to be on the pricier end of the scale, as often a lot more product is used to add structure to the face.

On average, most dermal fillers will last between 12-14 months, with some lasting even longer. The longevity of the dermal fillers also depends on how quickly your body breaks down the substance.

 

Are cheek fillers safe?

Traditionally, facial fillers were mostly made of collagen - which often gave a clunky, bumpy appearance. However, nowadays some of the most popular types of filler are made from HA (hyaluronic acid).

Hyaluronic acid isn't as scary as it sounds - it is actually a naturally-occurring molecule found within the body, and is responsible for attracting and retaining water. For this reason, HA fillers tend to give a much softer result and they break down without leaving residue in the body.

It is always advisable that you book a consultation in advance and meet with your practitioner. Be sure to ask them how many procedures they have performed, how long they have been treating and whether they have before and after images available.
