Cheek augmentation is a non-surgical procedure wherein injectables are used to improve the contours of your cheeks. Depending on the injectables used, cheek augmentation can reverse the age-related loss of volume from the midface region or improve your genetically inherited cheek contours. In either case, the goal is to achieve fuller cheeks without sagging, wrinkles, creases, or other signs of aging. We provide three unique injectables for cheek augmentation — Juvéderm Voluma, Restylane Lyft, and Sculptra.
Your Cheek Augmentation Options
Juvéderm Voluma XC
Juvéderm Voluma XC is the most effective hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler for cheek augmentation. It’s injected underneath the facial tissues on the cheeks to reverse age-related loss of facial volume, making your cheeks appear more voluminous and young. The hyaluronic acid increases your skin’s moisture retention capacity, which, in turn, makes your skin look supple and luscious. The results last for up to 24 months.
Restylane Lyft is another incredibly effective hyaluronic acid filler injected into the deep dermis. Its primary goal is correcting moderate to severe facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds, i.e., the lines running from the corners of the nose to the mouth, making your cheeks look smooth and youthful. Restylane Lyft has large particles with a dense consistency to fill in the facial wrinkles and creases. The results last for up to 12 months.
Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable composed of Poly-L-lactic acid, a naturally occurring substance that encourages collagen production. Collagen is the skin’s structural framework, making your skin look firm, voluminous, smooth, and wrinkle-free. It gradually rebuilds your skin’s depleted collagen reserves, thereby reversing the signs of aging. Instead of filling your cheeks instantly, it makes your body fill your cheeks naturally. The results last for up to 24 months.
RHA4 is also a highly effective hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler for cheek augmentation. Its use is most recommended for creating or restoring lost volume in dynamic faical areas, particularly the cheeks.

Your Cheek Augmentation Experience
The cosmetic provider examines your facial skin, discusses your goals, and curates the ideal non-surgical cheek augmentation treatment plan. Depending on your needs, they may recommend Juvéderm Voluma XC to add volume to your cheeks, Restylane Lyft to suppress the wrinkles and folds, and Sculptra for natural collagen restoration.
After curating the ideal treatment plan, the cosmetic provider will use an ultrafine needle to deliver the chosen fillers into the strategically chosen treatment areas. There is a numbing solution within the filler that alleviates any discomfort. You can resume your daily activities immediately, but you may experience mild redness, swelling, irritation, and discomfort for a few days.
