Cheek fillers at our Carlisle clinic are the foundation of anti-aging dermal filler treatments, offering a remarkable way to restore your youthful appearance, add volume and achieve defined cheekbones.

As we age, many of the natural signs of ageing become evident in the mid-face region. These include hollow cheeks, under-eye hollowness, nasolabial folds (nose-to-mouth lines), marionette lines, deep lines, deeper wrinkles and the development of jowls or sagging skin. Fortunately, cheek fillers can address these concerns effectively. This procedure involves the strategic injection of small amounts of filler in and around the cheek area using ultra-fine needles. It not only restores youthful fullness to your face but also may reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in this area.

When skillfully administered by our trained practitioners here at Oracle Aesthetics in Carlisle, Cumbria, aesthetic procedures such as cheek fillers are virtually undetectable, yet their impact is profound. They have the power to lift and define your features, enhancing what is often referred to as the “triangle of youth.” Cheek fillers are frequently used in conjunction with tear trough fillers and temple fillers to comprehensively improve the mid face & eye area.

The Benefits of Cheek Fillers

Increased Cheek Volume with dermal filler treatments: One of the primary benefits of cheek fillers is their ability to augment cheek volume, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Contoured Cheekbones: Cheek fillers can also be used to define and contour your cheekbones, creating a beautifully sculpted look.

Mid-Face Rejuvenation: Facial fillers target common signs of ageing in the mid-face area, including hollow cheeks, under-eye hollowness, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, facial lines and sagging skin.

Subtle Enhancement: When administered by skilled professionals, cheek fillers provide subtle yet significant enhancements that look entirely natural, these treatments may also stimulate collagen production similar to other non invasive skin treatments.


The Cheek Filler Procedure

The cheek filler procedure is a straightforward process:

1. Consultation: Your journey begins with an in-depth consultation where our experienced team assesses your specific concerns and aesthetic goals. We work closely with you to develop a personalised treatment plan.

2. Treatment: Using the safest techniques, we strategically inject small amounts of hyaluronic acid-based filler into and around the cheek area. The injectable treatment is performed with precision to ensure optimal results.

3. Aftercare: Recovery time is minimal, and most patients can resume their daily activities shortly after treatment. You’ll experience little to no downtime but may receive a small bruise that can be easily covered up with makeup.

4. Results: Within days of your aesthetic procedure, you’ll notice a significant improvement in the appearance of your cheeks and mid-face area. The results are natural-looking and long-lasting, typically lasting for approximately 12- 18 months.

Complementing Your Beauty

Cheek fillers can be wonderfully complemented by other treatments to enhance your overall facial rejuvenation:

Tear Trough Fillers: Address under-eye hollowness and dark circles to achieve a refreshed look.

Temple Fillers: Enhance the temples to harmonise with your improved cheek volume.

Lip Fillers: Achieve beautifully balanced and youthful lips with lip injections and subtle lip enhancement.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections: Further reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother, more youthful appearance with anti-wrinkle injections combined with dermal filler injections treatment.

This can improve the appearance of sunken or hollow cheeks, enhance cheekbone definition, and create a more youthful and rejuvenated look.


No, the cheek fillers that we perform are not permanent. Cheek fillers premium products typically last between 6 months to 2 years, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors such as metabolism and lifestyle. Over time, the filler material is gradually metabolised by the body, and touch-up treatments are usually required to maintain your aesthetic appearance with.


Most people experience minimal discomfort during cheek filler injections. Before the procedure, active skincare products such as topical numbing cream or local anaesthetic will be applied to the treatment area to minimise any potential pain or discomfort. Additionally there is lidocaine, a local anaesthetic contained in the fillers to enhance comfort during the injection process.


The cheek filler procedure is relatively quick and usually takes around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the extent of the treatment and the individual's specific needs. The injection technique process itself is usually completed in a matter of minutes. However, it's important to factor in additional time for consultation, preparation, and post-treatment instructions.


Generally, there is little to no downtime days after this facial rejuvenation treatment. Some individuals may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the dermal filler injection sites, but these effects typically subside within a few days. Most people are able to resume their normal activities immediately after the dermal filler treatment, although it is advisable to avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun exposure, and certain medications that can increase the risk of bruising.


Yes, in most cases, hyaluronic acid-based cheek fillers can be partially or completely reversed using an enzyme called hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase can break down hyaluronic acid fillers and accelerate their natural dissolution.


Good candidates for cheek fillers are individuals who have lost volume in their cheeks, have sunken or hollow cheeks, or desire enhanced cheekbone definition. It is important to be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes. Pregnant or breastfeeding women, as well as individuals with certain medical conditions or allergies, may not be suitable candidates for cheek filler injections.


When performed by a qualified and experienced medical professional, cheek filler injections are treatment safe. However, like any skin treatments, there are potential risks and side effects associated with cheek fillers to your skin health. Days after treatment there could be temporary swelling, bruising, redness, and the rare possibility of infection or allergic reactions. You will have a detailed assessment before the procedure in order to minimise these risks and we won’t proceed if we feel cheek fillers aren’t suitable for you.
