The cheekbones define and significantly contribute to the natural highlighting of our face. Many people long for high cheekbones or more defined cheekbones, as they are considered a sign of beauty. Some people seek cheek implants to get this look, but facial fillers actually provide a more natural looking result. Through dermal filler injections, you can get the cheekbones you’ve always wanted without surgery! At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, our board-certified dermatologists have extensive experience in creating cheekbone definition with injectable treatments.
Cheek Enhancement with Fillers
When you meet with one of our doctors during a consultation, he/she can discuss your desired look with you and create a treatment plan using the appropriate combination of dermal fillers for your cheekbone enhancement. The same idea of contouring and shadowing that we apply to putting on blush in this area is used when deciding where to inject fillers to ensure that the cheek area is creating a natural, youthful appearance. Many patients who undergo non-invasive cheekbone enhancement also notice an enhancement of other features as a result, as high cheekbones can highlight all the right places.
The new hyaluronic acid dermal filler VOLUMA is FDA-approved for treating volume loss in the cheek area. VOLUMA is a thick, smooth gel injectable that produces natural looking results. VOLUMA results have been shown to last up to 18 months.
Other hyaluronic acid gel fillers like Perlane, Belotero, and Restylane also work well for enhancing cheekbones and the cheek area. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that our bodies naturally produce to give the skin fullness, but our bodies produce less as we age leading to volume loss. Hyaluronic acid gel fillers work with the body’s natural hyaluronic acid to add volume and fill in wrinkles and facial hollows. It is effective at sculpting the cheekbones as well!
The cheekbones can also be enhanced with a collagen-stimulating injectable such as Radiesse or Sculptra. Radiesse is made up of calcium-based microspheres that are used to replace lost collagen and stimulate the production of collagen in the body. Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid and it also stimulates collagen production. We all lose collagen and elasticity with age, which can sometimes lead to sunken cheeks or poor cheekbone definition. A collagen-stimulator can lift the cheekbones and give you your desired contour, all while promoting collagen production. Radiesse and Sculptra are long lasting, with some patients experiencing results for up to one year or more.

Q: How much does cheekbone enhancement cost?

Q: Can I get fillers for my cheekbones and Botox at the same time?
