Using Juvederm for cheek volume

I love using Juvéderm for cheek volume. While many doctors promote other fillers for the cheeks, I find that using Juvéderm in adequate quantities produces beautiful results predictably, and reversibly.

I offer significant discounts for multiple syringes to encourage great results through adequate filling.

Number of Syringes of Juvederm for Cheeks?

    In some patients I recommend facial fat grafting to the patients for these areas, because the patient will save money over injecting Juvederm.  If you only need 2 syringes then, Juvederm is reasonable.  However, if you are seeking considerable augmentation, fat grafting makes more sense.

Jeuvederm Cheek Enhancement

How much Jeuvederm is needed is highly patient dependent. Without an exam, photos of how you look and how you want to look it would be impossible to figure out. I can tell you that we usually start with a syringe on each cheek then have patients return in 4-6 weeks to determine if additional injections are required.

Juvederm for cheek enhancement?

Volume replacement on cheeks can require a fair amount of filler so a picture would be of great benefit.  I love Juvederm but tend to use it more for lines, lips, earlobes and use the heavier, thicker products for cheek enhancement.  These would include Radiesse, Restylane and Perlane.  Sculptra is my injection of choice for volume loss in the lower and lateral cheeks.  Every filler and collagen stimulator has its place for optimal use.

Juvederm syringes

This really depends on the severity of your wrinkles and volume loss. Often, only one is necessary however more may be required to address your concerns. You can consider VOLUMA, a Juvederm product, that is specifically designed for volume loss.

Juvederm for Cheeks

Thank you for your question. I would recommend using at least 2 syringes for cheek enhancement, but everyone is different with their facial anatomy and treatment goals.  I would recommend a  consult and treatment under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon for best results and safest treatment options. I hope this helps!

How much filler for cheek enhancement?

There isn't an "average" amount for cheek enhancement. It all depends on the individual. The best option is to seek a consultation with a very skilled physician who has a lot of experience with all the filler and volumizing options. Sometimes isolated cheek filler makes sense, and the product options need to be discussed. I love Juvéderm, but for cheeks, depending on the volume needed, Radiesse, or Perlane, may be a better choice. I always look at the face as a whole, and sometimes it's not just the cheeks that have lost volume, but the face more generally. In that case Sculptra may be a much better option. Sculptra is not a filler, but helps to stimulate collagen production. It is a great option when more  generalized volume loss has occurred.

Amount of Juvederm needed for cheek enhancement

The amount of filler like Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane or Radiesse that is required really depends on the person, how sunken or flat their cheeks are, what their goals are, the age of the patient, etc. Best to speak with a highly trained dermatologist or plastic surgeon for the best treatment options for you. In most cases, I'd say 2-3 syringes will do a great job.

An artful dermatologist can use a small amount of filler and obtain AMAZING results!

In my hands, a very small amount of filler, injected precisely into the areas of natural volume loss, can enhance and lift the face significantly.


The goal is a natural result that is lifted and sculpted, not artificial and heavy cheeks that make one actually look older.


I hope that helps :)

How many vials of Juvederm do I need ?

Of course it depends on your volume loss in the face and which areas are injected - nasolabial folds, jawline, marionette lines, lips ... so, start with 2 and get re-evaluated in 2 months for more. "Build up slowly" is the philosophy I use so that you can get used to your new facial features and it is noticeable but not dramatic for you and others. You want people to say that you 'look radiant and fresh and younger' but you don't want them to know that you had facial fillers ....
