Cheek fillers are a non-invasive, injectable treatment designed to increase volume in the cheeks. This gives the impression of a more defined and prominent cheekbone structure. By undergoing this treatment, patients can achieve more structure, volume, and cheek definition for improved facial symmetry and proportions.
At The Skin Boutique, we use advanced cosmetic techniques and knowledge of facial anatomy to produce quality results for every patient. Cheek enhancements are achieved with a gel-based filler, instantly restoring lost volume and increasing facial harmony. You can then enjoy a higher, more defined cheek contour and an improved sense of confidence.
We offer complimentary consultations but require a $50 deposit to secure your booking. Deposits are fully redeemable towards treatment. If you chose to not proceed with treatment for any reason your deposit will be fully refunded.
Cancelled or rescheduled appointments with less than 24 hour’s notice are not eligible for a refund.
How do they work
Every cheek enhancement procedure is slightly different, since treatments must be customised to the patient and their health, needs, and preferences. Your treatment plan will be based on the factors discussed in your consultation, targeting the areas you are most concerned about.
Facial cheek filler is a kind of dermal filler that works to fill and volumise sunken areas. They are made from a specialised hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body. When injected as a gel-based substance under the skin, hyaluronic acid works to give the cheeks a softer, rounder appearance. During your treatment, your clinician will apply anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort and prepare your skin for treatment. The filler will be injected via a thin needle, addressing issues such as:
- Facial sagging
- Lines and wrinkles
- Wrinkles around the eyes
- Lack of cheek volume
- Low or unrefined cheeks
The treatment takes around 30 minutes and offers instant results. Some patients may choose to have follow-up treatments to maintain the outcome of their cheek enhancement.
About this treatment
Cheek Enhancement Benefits
As we age, our face loses the youthful volume it once had. The fat in our cheeks begins to diminish, leaving the skin around the midface less supported. This can make the face prone to sagging and other signs of ageing such as lines, wrinkles, and facial hollows. As well as the natural ageing process, sunken cheeks can also be a result of lifestyle and weight loss.
The cheeks can have a large impact on our facial features and overall appearance. By creating a fuller, enhanced cheek structure, we can give the face a more youthful and radiant appearance. Our experienced and highly skilled clinicians tailor the procedure to each patient’s facial structure and goals. By administering precise amounts of filler, we can achieve your desired result whilst maintaining your natural beauty. Cheek fillers:
- Are a non-invasive facial rejuvenation option
- Add volume and fullness
- Restore lost facial structure due to ageing or weight loss
- Improve facial balance and symmetry
- Provide instant, natural-looking results
Although cheek filler focuses on the cheeks, the procedure can have a significant effect on your general appearance, smoothing lines and wrinkles and providing overall facial enhancement.

Your private consultation
Every patient requires a consultation prior to their treatment. We will discuss your health, including medical history, past procedures, and any medications you are taking currently. We will also discuss your facial anatomy and what you hope to get from your cheek enhancement procedure. Once we have all the necessary information, we can determine if you are a suitable candidate and begin planning your treatment.
Good candidates for cheek filler can be men or women. They are generally in good health and do not smoke, since smoking can have negative effects on your body and inhibit the healing process. Patients should also have a positive outlook and realistic ideas about what to expect from treatment. If you are considering cheek enhancement but are unsure if it is the right option, we can help you come to a confident and well-informed decision.
There is no required downtime after a cheek filler procedure. This means you can return to all your normal activities, with minimal disruption to your routines. We will send you home with instructions on how to optimise your healing and achieve the best result possible. For example, during the healing process, you may need to:
Avoid direct sunlight and exposure to heat
Do not use harsh skincare products
Sleep on your back for the first few nights after your treatment
Do not consume alcohol or consume blood-thinning medication
Avoid laser treatments and chemical peels
Maintain a healthy diet and stay hydrated
Even though fillers provide immediate facial fullness and definition, it will take some patience to see the final result. This is because you will likely have some swelling and light bruising at the injection site, which can take about one week to heal.
This procedure is non-surgical and is regarded as low-risk. However, you should still take care of your treated area and follow your clinician’s instructions to avoid healing issues. If you notice any severe reactions or complications, be sure to contact us.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are cheek fillers permanent?
No, cheek fillers are a kind of dermal filler, which provides temporary facial enhancements. This allows you to adjust your look with age or as your preferences change.
How long do cheek fillers last?
This can vary depending on the patient, their health, and how quickly their body processes the substance. Generally, you can expect the filler to last upwards of six months. Top-up treatments can help you maintain results.
Am I a good candidate?
If you are seeking a non-surgical way to improve your facial contours and cheek definition, this could be the procedure for you. Ideal patients are in good health and are at a healthy, stable weight. Speak to our experts at The Skin Boutique to find out if you are suitable.
Can I get fillers while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Cheek fillers are not recommended for patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as the risks are not certain. If you are unsure whether you are suitable for treatment, we can offer guidance during a personal consultation.
How quickly will I see the results?
The results of cheek enhancement are immediate. However, patients should be aware that they will probably have some swelling after treatment, which means you will not see the final result until the treated areas have fully healed.
