What is the recovery time?

The recovery time for cheek fillers is usually minimal, with most people able to return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment. Some minor swelling and bruising may occur, but this should resolve within a few days.

How Long Do Cheek Fillers Last?

The duration of cheek filler results varies based on the type of filler used and the individual’s skin metabolism. On average, cheek fillers can last anywhere from 12-18 months. To maintain results, follow-up treatments may be necessary.

What Should I Expect During a Cheek Filler Treatment?

Before the treatment, your doctor will conduct a thorough consultation to determine your aesthetic goals and determine the appropriate treatment plan.

During the treatment, the doctor will disinfect the injection site before marking out the areas to be treated and injected. During this planning phase, your doctor will discuss with you where it will be best to inject the fillers.

The fillers are injected using a fine needle. Discomfort is minimal. The procedure typically takes about 15 to 30 minutes.

After the treatment, you may experience some swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site. These side effects should resolve within a few days. Your doctor will provide you with post-treatment instructions, including how to care for the injection site and when to return for follow-up treatments.


In conclusion, cheek fillers are a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment option for adding volume and definition to the cheeks. They are quick, relatively painless, and offer immediate results that can last up to 18 months. Like any medical procedure, there are some risks and side effects, but these can be minimized by choosing a skilled and experienced injector.
