Cheek Filler 101: Get the Lyft & Contour You Want!

Perfect your Valentine's Day! 3 Treatments to look your best.

We all know about wrinkles– the typical first signs of aging. While Botox, skin rejuvenation procedures and chemical peels can keep your skin looking smooth, oftentimes you’ll still find you don’t quite look like your younger self. Why?

As we age, the natural fat pads in our cheeks gradually diminish, resulting in a hollow or sunken appearance. Genetics, lifestyle, and environmental influences can also contribute to facial volume loss that only worsens over time.

At Vitality Women’s Healthcare, we love a good cheek filler treatment for keeping that youthful, heart-shaped face for years to come. Here’s all you need to know about this beauty secret!

What is Cheek Filler?

Cheek filler is a type of cosmetic procedure that uses injectable fillers to add volume and contour to the face. While not as popular of a cosmetic treatment as lip filler, the procedure comes a close second– and that’s for good reason. With age, the face tends to lose its volume and shape, deepening marionette lines and causing a hollowing of the cheekbones.

The solution? Adding a bit of extra plumpness back to the cheeks can make a huge difference in your overall appearance!

What Does Cheek Filler Look Like?

Cheek fillers are designed to provide a subtle and natural-looking result by restoring lost volume and enhancing facial volume and contours. Following treatment, the full effects of cheek filler can be seen after 2 to 4 weeks as the hyaluronic acid in the product works to hydrate skin cells.

When done by an experienced injector with the proper product, it is virtually undetectable that you’ve had a cosmetic procedure done, and you’ll be left looking like a younger version of you!

The Treatment Process

Undergoing cheek filler treatment with Restylane Contour or Restylane Lyft is a straightforward and minimally invasive process. After a detailed consultation, the injector will carefully assess your facial structure and discuss your desired outcomes.

During the treatment, the cheek filler is skillfully injected into the targeted areas using a fine needle or cannula, ensuring precise placement and minimal discomfort. The procedure typically takes around 30-60 minutes, and you can resume your daily activities with minimal downtime.

Why Choose Restylane Filler?

Cheek augmentation, while a common dermal filler treatment, can be difficult to achieve with natural-looking results when using improper filler products or with an inexperienced injector. The unique properties of Restylane Contour and Restylane Lyft make them an ideal choice for both contouring and volumizing. With these fillers, our treatment providers can tailor your treatments to ensure you reach your aesthetic goals.

Whether it’s restoring lost volume, softening facial wrinkles, or enhancing facial features, the Restylane family of fillers is not only a safe and effective solution but have unrivaled results. With proper treatment, you can enjoy long-lasting results and a more youthful appearance.

Restylane Contour

Restylane Contour is a remarkable dermal filler formulated with hyaluronic acid; a substance naturally found in the body. It is specifically designed to enhance facial contours and restore volume in areas that have lost their youthful fullness.

With its unique properties, this dermal filler injection effectively addresses concerns like sagging cheeks and overall loss of midface volume. The XpresHAn technology offers uniquely natural movement, seamlessly integrating into the skin at the injection sites, enabling remarkable flexibility and dynamic expression.

Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft, on the other hand, is another exceptional dermal filler that focuses on the correction of age-related volume loss– but provides added structure because it holds its shape. With a slightly higher concentration of hyaluronic acid and larger particles, Restylane Lyft provides more robust support and lift to areas of the face that have experienced significant volume loss. It is commonly used to enhance cheekbones, correct deep nasolabial folds, and restore a more youthful contour to the midface.

What’s the Difference?

While both Restylane Contour and Restylane Lyft use hyaluronic acid for the correction of midface contour, there are some notable differences between the two. Restylane Contour has a lower hyaluronic acid concentration and finer particles, making it ideal for refining and contouring smaller areas with high movement. This hyaluronic acid filler is a great choice for maintaining the most natural result, designed to move in harmony through every facial expression.

Restylane Lyft, with its higher concentration and larger particles, is better suited for addressing larger treatment areas and providing more substantial volume enhancement and structure. However, both fillers offer long-lasting results and can be tailored to meet individual needs.

Maintenance and Longevity

The longevity of results may vary depending on factors such as the individual’s metabolism, lifestyle choices, and the specific treatment area. However, both Restylane Contour and Restylane Lyft offer long-lasting outcomes, typically ranging from 6-12 months. Our treatment providers will decide the exact volume needed to reach your cosmetic goals.

To maintain your new, beautifully sculpted cheeks, it’s essential to follow post-treatment care instructions provided by your injector and consider periodic touch-up treatments!

What Else Can Be Treated with Restylane?

The Restylane family of products offer a variety of aesthetic treatments to help you look and feel your best. In addition to restoring cheek contours, the hyaluronic acid dermal filler can be used for a variety of other skin concerns without the need for surgical procedures or permanent scarring:

  • Smile lines
  • Deep wrinkles
  • Loss of volume in temples
  • Softening of dynamic wrinkles
  • Midface contour deficiencies
