How Can Cheek Fillers Enhance Your Appearance?

Do cheek fillers make you look better? Our Rockland, Maine-based team at Skin Klinic & Day Spa knows that this is one of the questions on the mind of many patients who are considering injectable fillers.

As we age, our skin loses volume, and our cheeks may begin to sag and appear sunken as a result. This can make us look tired and older than we actually are. However, hyaluronic acid cheek fillers offer a versatile solution to enhance our appearance and restore youthful contours to our face.

Hyaluronic acid cheek fillers are dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in our bodies—to add volume to the cheeks. Juvederm® Voluma is a popular hyaluronic acid filler that is specifically designed for the cheeks and mid-face area.

Exactly how versatile are hyaluronic acid cheek fillers like Juvederm® Voluma, and how can they enhance your appearance? Here’s what you should know about their benefits.

Hyaluronic acid cheek fillers can be customized to meet the unique needs and preferences of each patient. The amount of filler used, the injection technique, and the placement of the filler can all be tailored to achieve the desired results.

Some of the ways that hyaluronic acid cheek fillers can be customized include:

Volume Enhancement

Full cheeks are a trait associated with youth. As we age, we tend to lose volume in our cheeks, which can result in a sunken, flattened, or hollow appearance. Fillers can add volume to the cheeks, restoring a youthful contour to the face.


By adding volume to specific areas of the cheeks, hyaluronic acid fillers can also enhance facial definition, providing a more sculpted and chiseled appearance if that’s what you’re seeking.


Hyaluronic acid fillers can also provide a lifting effect, which can reduce the appearance of sagging and create a more youthful look.


For patients with asymmetrical features, hyaluronic acid cheek fillers can help to balance out the proportions of the face, creating a more harmonious and “even” appearance.

Is Morpheus8 a Good Skincare Treatment to Try in Cooler Months?

When it comes to beauty treatments, our Rockland, Maine-based Skin Klinic & Day Spa team highly recommends Morpheus8 radiofrequency (RF) microneedling for patients who want ideal rejuvenating results.

Cooler months are typically a good time to consider cosmetic procedures—and especially skin resurfacing treatments—since there’s plenty of “healing time” for your skin as you recover. Another plus? The limited sun exposure of the season allows you to maximize results, since ultraviolet radiation can negatively impact the effects of numerous treatments. In other words, we spend more time indoors and covered up then it’s cooler, plus the UV index is lower at this time of the year.

Morpheus8 uses a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency to treat skin as well as the deeper fat layers at the same time. It offers many benefits, such as creating a tighter overall appearance. Additionally, Morpheus8 treats a variety of other cosmetic concerns, including dilated pores, sagging skin, fine lines, skin folds, acne, and scars. There is fairly minimal downtime required after Morpheus8, but the skin should be treated with care.

Since it’s so important to avoid sun exposure after many treatments, we also recommend trying out chemical peels and laser-based procedures to revitalize your skin at this time of the year. You will need to avoid sun exposure as much as possible after these options to lower the risk of hyperpigmentation.

Peels encourage skin cell turnover and reveal more radiant skin, but will leave fresh skin exposed to harmful elements from the environment, such as UV rays. It’s generally better to have any types of laser treatments—especially more intense ones—during cooler months because too much sun exposure could cause prolonged redness and hyperpigmentation. Moreover, the cooler air provides some relief for sensitive post-treatment skin.

Skin rejuvenation treatments can restore a brighter appearance to dull or dry skin that suffered during the winter. However, it’s worth noting that these treatments can be performed at other times of the year as well. We just recommend more attention during aftercare!
