What is the best product for cheek enhancement?

I recommend Voluma. This product is a hyaluronic acid which has reverse capabilities if indicated. Voluma will be available in the United States in December 2013. This product is the first FDA approved filler for the midface/cheek area. Studies have shown the expectancy of the product to be up to two years. The specific manufacturing involved with the product, cohesitivity and lift power, makes this a wonderful option for the midface. The outcome is technique driven, therefore I recommend you seek treatment by an experienced injector.

Both Perlane and Juvederm UltraPlus are good options for cheek enhancement, however, you may want to consider the newly FDA-approved Voluma from the makers of Juvederm. Voluma is approved specifically for volume loss in the cheeks and provides long-lasting, natural results of 2 years or more unlike other HA fillers which typically last up to 1 year.

Best fillers for cheek enhancement

Enhancing cheeks is frequently necessary due to volume loss from the aging process. To correct this I will almost always use stimulatory fillers such as Radiesse or Sculptra. They are injected deeper, beneath the skin, and will generate more volume to create a much better lifting effect. They work by stimulating your skin to produce more collagen, which is why they are so effective for problems due to volume loss, and give longer-lasting results too. In my opinion, Radiesse and Sculptra are better, longer lasting fillers for cheek enhancement and volume replacement than hyaluronic acid-containing fillers such as Perlane or Juvederm.

What filler should be used for cheek enhancement

Many fillers can be used for cheek enhancement. I prefer softer HA fillers like Perlane or Restylane usually, but it depends on your facial shape, structure, and specific volume loss. Sometimes it's ideal to put a filler like Radiesse underneath and a softer HA filler over it. Seek an in-person consultation with a board-certified injector in your area who can assess your specific needs and guide you to the best options for you.
