Cheeks are an important part of the face that balances the facial features. Due to aging and other causes, this area can be unbalanced and disproportionate. The cheeks augment symmetry of the face, which is highly associated with a person’s glowing health and attractiveness.
Hollow cheeks can make a person’s face look more aged than they really are; this is when cheek fillers come in. The treatment is done to lift the middle part of the face.
As we age, our cheeks tend to lose their volume and begin to sag. This filler procedure replaces lost facial volume and achieves well-defined prominent cheekbones. Fillers don’t just improve your cheeks, but also deepens nasolabial folds, tear troughs and marionette lines to avoid lower face jowling.
If you’ve been toying with the idea of getting fillers, don’t worry as they are generally safe and effective. Read on to know more about cheek fillers in Singapore.
There are several types or brands of cheek fillers in Singapore. They vary in terms of how frequent and how long the next injection is needed.
Juvederm Voluma is an FDA-approved hyaluronic cheek filler that shows immediate results, which may also last up to 18 months. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally existing substance in your body that helps keep skin firm and bring that youthful appearance. As you age, this substance naturally decreases, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of facial volume, particularly in the cheeks. Juvederm Voluma is injected into your cheeks, leaving your face plumper and firmer. Your facial features will be more defined and instantly appear more youthful.
This is a non-surgical option that has no downtime or recovery time – you can immediately carry on with your regular activities. Considering it is less invasive, Juvederm Voluma is more affordable than surgical procedures and pose minimal risks.
Another brand of dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid is Restylane Lyft. This is a safe and effective HA filler that can be injected in your cheeks and hands for a smoother, fuller appearance.
Restylane Lyft involves injectable hyaluronic acid gel to restore volume loss and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It is specifically designed to enhance the fullness of the midface area, especially in the cheek area.
The procedure works by injecting a substance that contains hyaluronic acid, water, and lidocaine. This results in a plumping effect and adds volume to the targeted areas. Expect quick results after treatment, though full effects will be noticeable after a few days. Restylane Lyft is a temporary filler that lasts for 9 to 15 months.
Cheek Filler Benefits
Non-invasive treatments are hugely popular nowadays, just like with cheek fillers in Singapore. You don’t have to go under the knife anymore if you want well-defined facial features.
Fillers are made of natural gels that are only injected into areas of volume loss or hollowness.
Being non-surgical, it requires less downtime, which will allow you to get back to your regular routine in no time. Usual social downtime will be 1-3 days of small needle marks, bruising and swelling. Most patients are able to conceal the small needle marks, bruising and swelling with make-up. However, if you have major social events like a wedding, sales presentation or job interview within 1 week of the treatment, please inform your doctor so that he/ she can advise the most suitable time for the treatment.
You can expect immediate improvement after treatment such as fuller cheeks, defined jaw, improve jowls, and a natural-looking enhancement in the eye area. Fillers can improve your hollowed-out look and minimize the appearance of other obvious signs of aging. These improvements in your appearance will help you to look more refreshed.

Are cheek fillers safe?
Facial fillers used to be made of collagen, which gave a bumpy appearance and caused infections.
Nowadays, fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a safer substance and results in a better outcome. HA is a natural molecule already found in the body which is responsible for retaining water.
This treatment is generally safe – however, fillers still require injections. While most side effects are not serious and rare, they may happen.
It is always best to have a proper consultation with a medical professional to understand the chances of side effects from dermal fillers.
