Non-surgical cheek augmentation with dermal fillers
Cheek filler injections with Dr. Adam Becker in Raleigh, NC provide a wonderful, non-surgical, and minimally invasive solution for restoring facial volume and smoothing lines and wrinkles in the cheek area. Dr. Becker will oftentimes recommend cheek filler treatments for patients who are concerned with age-related facial volume loss and facial imbalance. Dr. Becker’s artistic skills and expertise in facial anatomy and facial plastic surgery have consistently delivered remarkable, natural-looking results for his cheek filler patients.
Cheek filler injections provide amazing benefits including:
- Improved definition of the cheekbone structure
- Restored volume in the cheek and midface region, including the nasolabial folds
- Softened fine lines and wrinkles around the cheeks and nose
- Improved overall facial symmetry and volumized cheekbones
- Multiple filler options and treatment options are available to suit the patient’s individual needs and desired outcome
- Gradual, natural-looking results with very little downtime (minimal swelling and/or bruising in the treatment area may be expected for up to 2 weeks)
Dr. Becker uses a variety of dermal cheek fillers to suit patients’ individual goals:
Hyaluronic-acid (HA) fillers
Dr. Becker most commonly uses Hyaluronic-acid (HA) fillers, such as Restylane® Lyft, Restylane® Contour, and Juvederm® Volumna, which are composed of naturally derived hyaluronic-acid (a substance produced by the body) to lift and volumize the cheeks. Results are immediate and may last up to one year. Hyaluronic acid fillers are a popular choice for patients who are new to injectable filler treatments and looking for subtle non-permanent results.
Dr. Becker treats with Radiesse® to contour, lift and volumize the cheeks for patients who are looking for a specific look that’s longer lasting. Radiesse® is formulated with calcium hydroxylapatite (a substance that occurs naturally in the bones) and has a paste-like composition, which allows for him to shape and contour the cheeks more precisely after the filler is injected. Results are visible immediately and a touch-up treatment may be needed. Results may last up to two years.
Bellafill may also be used to lift and balance the cheeks for patients who desire results to last for up to 5 years. Bellafill cheek filler injections immediately add volume and its polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres work to stimulate natural collagen growth over time, strengthening and supporting the tissues and allowing for the longest-lasting filler results. Dr. Becker may recommend Bellafill cheek injections for patients who have been treated with dermal fillers in the cheeks before and who are looking for longer-lasting results, and for those who experience “filler fatigue” (when filler treatments are needed more frequently over time to maintain desired results).
