If you want to change the contours of your face, you have two options: surgical or non-surgical treatment. At the Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center in Huntington, NY, we offer patients the option minimally invasive dermal fillers that can provide stunning cheek augmentations. Fillers can restore lost volume to the cheeks without having major incisions or healing time.

Why patients seek cheek augmentation

Augmenting the cheeks gives the face a more sculpted, fuller look. Many individuals with smaller cheek bones want to create the illusion of more definition, making the face look more angular. Other individuals simply want to look younger and reverse the sunken cheeks that can be common as they age.

What are cheek fillers?

Cheek fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that can be found naturally in the body. As we age, our body produces less hyaluronic acid along with collagen and elastin, causing the mid-area of the face to appear hollow or sunken. When injected in the apple area of the cheeks, they can improve volume in the cheeks.

Injectable fillers vs. permanent implants

When choosing implants versus fillers, it’s important to identify the key difference. Fillers are injected with a small needle into the desired treatment area. The procedure is quick, relatively painless and has no downtime. Implants require incisions and an extended recovery period. During healing, a brace needs to be worn to keep the implant from moving.

Dermal fillers can be an excellent way to take years off your appearance and restore volume and definition to the cheeks. We also offer other injectables such as Botox and for patients who wish to treat multiple areas of the face.
