Cheek and lower face fillers Q & A

What are cheek and lower face fillers? 

Cheek and lower face fillers are injectable hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that work to reduce pronounced nasolabial folds (lines around the mouth), restore volume loss in the medial cheeks, and create a more defined bone structure. 

What are the benefits of fillers to the cheeks and lower face? 

Because volume loss occurs as we naturally age, these areas are more susceptible to visible signs of aging. One of the biggest concerns we hear from our patients is regarding volume loss in the medial cheeks and lower face. Cheeks can look hollow, creating a tired appearance, and the lower face can appear “saggy” with more prominent nasolabial folds and jowls. Injectable fillers work to restore this volume loss, reducing pronounced folds and helping restore youthful plump cheeks, leaving patients looking naturally refreshed and rejuvenated.

How long do the effects of a liquid facelift treat? 

Depending on the patient and type of filler, results last anywhere from 6-12 months.

Will I look overdone? 

At Zand Dermatology, our goal is to not only delay the aging process but also soften it with individualized, effective treatments with dermal fillers. Our natural approach with injectable dermal fillers ensures that our patients never leave with an unnatural appearance (no chipmunk cheeks!). Instead, we work to restore natural volume loss so our patients leave looking more rested, refreshed, and lifted. 

Does it hurt?

With any cosmetic injection, there is the potential for discomfort during the procedure; however, we take every step to ensure sure you feel comfortable. We will prescribe you topical numbing cream to your pharmacy to apply 30 minutes before your appointment to treatment areas. We recommend reading our cosmetic instructions under "Patient Info" to help prepare for your procedure and minimize the chances of bruising.
