At Face Hub Facial Aesthetic Clinic, we can enhance the natural beauty of your face with dermal fillers. Enhanced cheekbones result in a more youthful and attractive appearance. Cheeks are one of the most important features of the face. When we age our skin and facial structure change as well as the underlying support. This support includes the skull, muscles and fat which can all shrink and descend as we get older. This creates a gaunt and saggy appearance in some cases. Everyone ages differently where some people lose volume in the face and others find their skin sags or droops. When volume is lost in the cheeks it can make the face look older as there is no natural plump that the cheeks usually have. This can have an effect on other areas of the face as when the cheeks lose volume the under-eye skin may start to droop as gravity is pulling it down.
Cheek fillers are dermal filler injections that increase the volume of the area to provide the illusion of a more defined bone structure. By injecting volume under your skin layer, cheek fillers can also smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Cheek fillers are great for adding volume to the cheeks and the areas surrounding them. It lifts the whole face and can reduce the appearance of naso-labial folds and tear troughs. Wrinkles can also be reduced by cheek fillers making the skin look smooth and youthful.
Before you have cheek enhancement treatment you will have a consultation with one of our Face Hub practitioners. They will go through your goals and assess if you are a good candidate for this procedure. An anaesthetic cream can be applied for 20 minutes before your injections to prevent any pain or discomfort. The Juverderm filler is injected at precise locations around the cheeks and the skin is massaged to smooth the material. A Cheekbone enhancement treatment with dermal fillers takes on average 30 minutes.
Dermal fillers are unsuitable for patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
There are many benefits to having cheek enhancement treatment such as:
- Cheek fillers can be performed with little to no anaesthetic

- There is low risk of complications or infection
- Cheek fillers can be changed after injection so you can add more if needed for desired result
- Cheek fillers are not as expensive or invasive as surgery such as cheek implants
