Wrinkles, fine lines, and lost cheeks volume are signs of aging. These are an inevitable part of life, and you cannot stop them from happening. Internal and external factors, including unhealthy lifestyle, poor diet, sun exposure, accelerate the process of aging.

Everyone has the right to look beautiful at any age. However, non-invasive or minimally invasive cosmetic treatments are available that target fine lines, wrinkles and add volume to cheeks. Let get to know how your cheeks lose volume and what cosmetic treatments are available to make them plump and rejuvenated.

Why do your Cheeks Lose Volume as You Age?

Fatty tissues in your cheeks are evenly distributed at a young age. With age, they lose volume, clump up, and move downwards. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is responsible for making your skin healthy and plump. It is a gel-like substance that retains moisture and keeps your skin hydrated in all the right places. As you grow older, your body starts producing less hyaluronic acid, and your cheeks begin to lack angularity and slackness. In addition, your facial bones lose elastin that may contribute to droopiness of the face.

Treatments that can add Volume to Your Cheeks

A variety of injectable treatments are available to address the lost volume of cheeks. The dermal fillers with different particle sizes and textures can treat larger and smaller face areas. Juvéderm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that are great to add the lost volume.


It is from the family of dermal fillers consisting of hyaluronic acid. When this chemical is injected into your skin, it increases the quantity of Hyaluronic acid in the dermis. A professional identifies the strategic sites to inject the Juvéderm filler, which enhances the plumpness of cheeks.

Juvéderm is safe because it contains hyaluronic acid, a substance that has existed in our body naturally since birth. It plays several essential functions, including delivering nutrients and retaining moisture in the skin. In addition, it can attract up to 1000 times its molecular mass in water and bind itself to water molecules.

Juvéderm is FDA approved dermal filler. Millions of doses have been used to add volume to cheeks worldwide. You can trust the brand because it has thousands of happy clients.

This is a versatile treatment. It can boost up the volume, elevate the cheeks’ contours, and make you look younger and beautiful. The process is simple that takes 15-30 minutes in total. You can go back to your normal activities after getting the treatment done. You will likely see the final results after 14 days, lasting for 18-24 months.


The new FDA-approved dermal filler in the market enhances cheeks volume and improves facial structure. Restylane was previously known as Perlane-L. It is a hyaluronic acid-containing dermal filler and works the same as Juvéderm.

The two products differ in the technologies by which they are formed. Restylane has a larger particle size of hyaluronic acid, making it suitable for lifting and contouring cheekbones. In contrast, the Juvéderm has higher customer satisfaction because it has the potential to last the results for up to 2 years.

Side Effects If Any

Both the treatments are safe and effective. Mild bruising, redness, and swelling is expected to last for a few days. To minimize the chance of any side effects, do not rub and massage the treated site. Also, avoid lying on your face at night for a minimum of 72 hours after the treatment.
