How to Restore Lost Volume to Your Face: Your Guide to Cheek Filler

When we are young, the fatty tissue in our face is evenly distributed. Our cheeks look round and supple, and the skin around our mouth and nose is firm.

As we age, our fatty tissues lose volume, clump, and shift downward. Our bodies manufacture less and less hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin.

Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like substance that helps our skin retain moisture, keeping it plump and hydrated. When these important plumping agents are lost, our mid-face loses volume and shifts.

How cheek filler works

Cheek fillers are a great non-surgical option for restoring lost volume and achieving a fuller, more youthful appearance.


Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the most commonly used filler for your cheeks. It is a naturally occurring substance in the body, making it an excellent choice for plumping the skin because it attracts and retains moisture.

Other cheek filler products on the market are made of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa) and poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA).


Filler is injected into specific parts of the cheek to add volume, lift sagging skin, and smooth wrinkles.


Once injected, the filler plumps the area immediately, offering visible improvement. Despite the immediate effect, your optimal results will appear over several days as the filler integrates with the surrounding tissues.

Key considerations

The first step is to have an initial consultation with a technician to assess your overall facial structure, skin texture, degree of laxity, get a baseline anatomy assessment, and discuss your goals.

At LightRx, our state-of-the-art fillers can be used in combination to achieve the results you are looking for. It is essential to understand what fillers will be used and how long they last so you can maintain your results over time.

Ideal candidates for cheek filler

A consultation will help you determine your best strategy, but cheek filler can be a great option if you fit into the following categories.

  • Sagging skin on your lower face and mouth.
  • Hollow areas beneath your cheekbones.
  • A visible transition between your eye area and upper cheeks.
  • Volume loss in the cheeks is characterized by sunken cheeks, sagging skin, and deep lines extending from the nose to the corners of your mouth.
