Cosmetic Injectables

Cheek Fillers

Cheek Fillers are cosmetic fillers that are injected into the face to augment the cheek area and to correct for age-related volume loss.

Soft Hyaluronic Acid fillers such as Juvéderm Voluma XC, Restylane, and Versa or firmer fillers such as Radiesse and Sculptra are often applied to the cheek area of the face to improve volume loss or augment and contour the cheeks. Juvederm Voluma XC is approved for the cheek area, other fillers are considered off label for this area.
