Plump Sunken Cheeks With JUVÉDERM® Injections

Along with age comes a natural loss of volume in certain facial features, like the lips and the area under the eyes. Perhaps the most noticeable feature that begins to fall flat as we age are the cheeks, which can leave people looking worn-down and older than they actually are. For these patients, JUVÉDERM filler injections offer an instant, convenient solution for adding volume to the cheeks and restoring a smoother, younger appearance overall. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James Rough and the expert aesthetic team at James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery in Tucson, AZ are proud to offer a complete range of JUVÉDERM filler products to help meet the unique needs of all of our patients. Keep reading to find answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about JUVÉDERM cheek fillers, and discover what results may be attainable for you.

Why Do My Cheeks Look Sunken In?

Even if your overall weight hasn’t changed, you may have noticed that your face has lost some of its youthful fullness, which can lead to lines, wrinkles, and flattened or hollow features. This is generally associated with a natural loss of fat, collagen, and tissue associated with the aging process. Some individual factors, like diet, smoking, sun exposure, and others, can further exacerbate facial volume loss over time. To restore fuller cheeks and a younger look in general, many patients turn to injectable dermal fillers, like JUVÉDERM.

How Do JUVÉDERM Cheek Fillers Work?

JUVÉDERM is a dermal filler product that helps to add instant volume to the face and boost the body’s supply of hyaluronic acid (HA), giving patients results that are remarkably natural looking and feeling. The treatment will begin by numbing the area with a local or topical anesthetic. The JUVÉDERM fillers themselves contain lidocaine, also an anesthetic, to help further minimize any discomfort you may feel with injections. Finally, JUVÉDERM filler is strategically injected and gently massaged by one of our knowledgeable injectors to create smooth, symmetrical, natural-looking results.

How Long Does JUVÉDERM Last In The Cheeks?

Everyone’s body will break down dermal fillers at a slightly different rate, and some features that are particularly animated — like the lips — may not “hold” filler quite as long as other, more static features. On average, most patients can enjoy a consistent look for about 9 – 12 months with JUVÉDERM cheek fillers. Still, if you notice your cheeks starting to appear a little less full earlier than you’d like, repeat injections can be performed sooner to restore your desired look.

Where Else Can JUVÉDERM Be Used?

The versatile line of filler products included in the JUVÉDERM family can be used to smooth lines and add volume in a number of areas, some of the most popular of which include:

  • Temples
  • Under the eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Around the mouth
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Jawline
  • Hands
