Dermal Fillers to Lift and Contour Cheeks for a Natural Look
Well-defined cheeks are a universal feature of youth and beauty, and they help improve your overall facial profile and beauty. We have achieved amazing results with cheek augmentation and it has become our specialty and one of our most sought-after popular treatments to restore volume loss to the face. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment to restore fullness to the cheeks with immediate and long-lasting results. Treating the volume loss which occurs in the cheeks with dermal filler will significantly transform your face and reverse the signs of aging almost instantly.
The Aging Face and Your Cheeks
As we age, we experience increased thinning of the skin coupled with fat loss or migration and bone restructuring become. These changes aresignificantly noticeable in our mid-face, resulting in sunken or flattenedcheeks with overlying loose skin. The flattening of our cheeks results in down-stream effects as well such as prominent nasolabial folds and wrinkles, multiplying the number of areas which show signs of aging.
Using dermal fillers to treat volume-loss in the mid-face helps reverse the age-related folds and wrinkles which develop by providing a natural-looking lift to your face and can actually tighten your skin as well. Our clients are extremely happy (rated only 5 stars on Yelp, Google, and Facebook) with their results as it’s painless, quick, and long-lasting.
The Yofi Difference
We have treated many patients with significant flattening of their cheeks due to volume loss who were happy and satisfied with the natural look our treatment results.Every patient has a different facial anatomy due to their bone structure and volume loss and therefore the treatment area may be slightly different from one person to another. During the free in-person consultation, we will point out the areas of concern and identify and distinguish the subtle differences which will create the most natural-looking cheek augmentation perfect for you according to your anatomy. Injections are done with as few sites as possible to minimize bruising after we’ve numbed you to have the most comfortable experience as possible.
During the treatment, we will walk you through our process and show you the difference between the treated side and the untreated side (for an instant before/after effect) and make any changes on the spot.During your 1-2 week follow-up visit, we place any final touches needed to achieve the most natural, youthful look for you.
Cheek augmentationis the most valuable treatment as volume loss in this area is the most prominent sign of aging.

This quick and relatively painless procedure has the benefit of long-lasting (12-18 months) and noticeable results.
We use only safe hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers which give your cheeks a well-defined look, lasting up to 2 years. We typically use Juvederm Voluma or Restylane Lyft depending on your facial anatomy and degree of volume loss.
During your free consultation, we will analyze the treatment area, your desired aesthetics and answer any questions you may have. We will discuss the degree of volume loss present and go over which dermal filler will be best suited for your anatomy.
After a plan is formulated, we will begin cleaning and numbing the treatment area. Injections take around 30 minutes and most daily activities can be resumed shortly thereafter. We will schedule a follow-up visit and to perform any touch-ups if needed.
Your consultation is usually 20 minutes. After we formulate a treatment plan, injections can start on the same day. Most consults and injections are scheduled for 1 hour (includes numbing time). We then schedule to see you within 2 weeks to re-evaluate you and make any touch-ups as necessary.
We use a verypowerful and effective numbing cream and ultra-fine needles to dull the pain for your comfort. Most patients state they feel only slight pressure, with the highest pain scores reported have been a tolerable 3-4/10. Additionally, all of our dermal fillers contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic which further helps reduce injection site pain. After the injection, we apply arnica to soothe the skin and apply ice packs to reduce swelling and discomfort.
While we avoid major blood vessels, bruising may happen. To reduce the risk of bruising, we ask you to not consume alcohol the day before and to let us know if you are using any blood thinners such as aspirin, other NSAIDs, warfarin (coumadin), Xarelto, Plavix, etc. We minimize injection sites and use a very delicate technique to reduce the chance of bruising.
The duration of your youthful appearance after treatment may last from 12-24 months, depending on the dermal filler used. However, each person is different and for some the dermal filler may last a few months longer or a few months shorter. We only usesafe hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers which will be metabolized by your body over time.
