Upper Cheek Treatment
Facial fillers are often used for upper cheek treatment to replace lost volume or to enhance existing features. This type of cosmetic enhancement can be done as a singular treatment but is often done in combination with treatments to other areas of the face. These include the jawline, smile lines and folds around the mouth and the smoothing of wrinkles and creases around the eyes. Using fillers to enhance the upper cheeks is often a part of what is referred to as a “liquid facelift,” which achieves, in a temporary fashion, what might otherwise require plastic surgery.
When the upper cheek loses volume or drops in position, it can have a dramatic impact on your appearance. It is common for the face to lose fat and volume as you get older, causing a sunken or gaunt appearance to the face. This loss of fat or natural filler under the skin and facial tissues in the upper cheek area can create eye bags or dark undereye circles, making you look tired and older. Adding volume to this area with dermal fillers can erase time and tiredness from your face for a refreshed appearance, similar to a facelift. When combined with other cosmetic treatments, it can be an early option instead of choosing plastic surgery.

Fillers for the Midface
Voluma, Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra and Radiesse are common facial fillers used for upper cheek treatment and are all available through The K Spa. Your medical practitioner will select the filler or fillers that they believe will provide the best results for you as an individual. They will be happy to explain the differences between the various brands of fillers and the reasons for their choice for your treatment. However, you always have the option to choose a different treatment if you prefer. At The K Spa, we understand that knowledge is empowering for our patients and it adds another level of confidence and trust to our relationship with them.
Dermal fillers can last from several months up to two years depending on the type of filler used. For the upper cheeks, a filler that offers deeper, fuller plumpness is needed as opposed to fillers that are used for finer lines and wrinkles. Our expert team will discuss the types of fillers and how long to expect the results to last to give you the best options. We will recommend what we believe will give you the most natural results and work best with your face shape and skin type. Treatments are always performed using advanced techniques for placement and dosage to create a more youthful, but natural, look for your face.
