Non-surgical cheek augmentation is an injectable solution for sunken, hollowed, or gaunt cheeks. As you grow older, the gradual loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid makes your cheeks look hollow and gaunt, which makes you look old and tired. Non-surgical cheek augmentation involves using dermal fillers and Sculptra injections to restore your skin’s hyaluronic acid and collagen reserves, thus enhancing the volume in your cheeks.
How does non - surgical cheek augmentation work?
Non-surgical cheek augmentation involves injecting a unique combination of dermal fillers and Sculptra into targeted areas on the cheeks. Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm and Restylane, add hyaluronic acid underneath the cheeks to make them look fuller and more supple. Sculptra is a collagen stimulator that catalyzes your body’s innate collagen production capabilities. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers to reverse the signs of aging and make your cheeks look fuller.

What happens during non - surgical cheek augmentation?
Your non-surgical cheek augmentation starts with a thorough consultation. Our medical providers carefully examine your facial features, measure the degree of missing volume, discuss your concerns and goals, review your medical history, and curate a personalized treatment plan. We mark the treatment areas on your face and select the ideal dermal fillers for your specific needs — different dermal fillers produce different results.
During your non-surgical cheek augmentation, the medical expert will cleanse your facial skin and apply a topical anesthetic to ensure comfort. The selected dermal fillers are carefully injected into targeted facial tissues using extremely thin needles. The entire process is fairly painless — you will only experience a little pinch. The treatment concludes within 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the number of injections.
What are the side effects of non - surgical cheek augmentation?
Non-surgical cheek augmentation may cause mild post-treatment redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, pinpoint bleeding, and numbing around the injection sites. These side effects are mild and only last for a few days.
Is there any downtime after non - surgical cheek augmentation?
There’s no downtime after a non-surgical cheek augmentation. You may resume your daily activities and work immediately, but you should avoid intense workouts for a day.
When will I see the results of non - surgical cheek augmentation?
Dermal fillers, like Juvéderm and Restylane, produce instant results, so your cheeks will immediately look fuller and more contoured. And Sculptra stimulates natural collagen production, so the results will gradually improve over several weeks and months.
How long do the non - surgical cheek augmentation results last?
The longevity of the results depends on the fillers used and how quickly your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid. The results from dermal fillers should last for 6 to 18 months, which can be extended with regular touch-ups. And the results from Sculptra should last for 2 to 5 years.
