What are cheek fillers?
“Cheek fillers” is an expression which encompasses a whole range of products and substances.
In layman’s terms, it is a cosmetic treatment that is designed to add volume, contour the face and rejuvenate.
Dermal fillers help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
They are also used to re-introduce structure and volume.
How much do dermal fillers cost and how long do they last?
The price of dermal fillers depends on the area treated, as well as the amount of product used.
Another factor which determines the price is the complexity of the procedure – for example, a non-surgical rhinoplasty (nose job) requires a lot of skill and medical knowledge and should only be performed by a practitioner with experience.
Cheek fillers do tend to be on the pricier end of the scale, as often a lot more product is used to add structure to the face.
On average, most dermal fillers will last between 12-14 months, with some lasting even longer.
The longevity of the dermal fillers also depends on how quickly your body breaks down the substance.
