Cheek Fillers in Mississauga

Consultations offered at our eight convenient locations in Toronto, Burlington, Mississauga, Woodbridge and Richmond Hill, ON

 A cheek filler is a volumizing aesthetic treatment that accentuates and improves the contour of a patient’s cheekbones. The social perception of a youthful face typically consists of high, full cheekbones, a sharp separation of features, and smooth, radiant skin. Cheek fillers offer buildable volume and shape for patients seeking a more pronounced cheek contour. With multiple treatment options, patients can easily find the right filler to create the look they desire.

What Are Cheek Fillers?

Everyone experiences changes in facial skin and tissue with age. As we get older, the production of fundamental and important elements like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA) slows down. This leads to volume loss, wrinkle formation, and sagging skin. Features that noticeably change with age include the cheekbones. As the fad pads located deep within the face lose volume, the height of the cheekbones decreases creating a hollow space just below the highest point. This can make your face look less youthful and depleted. (1)

The Aging Face

From an aesthetic view, the face is divided into “perfect thirds.” The upper third consists of the upper eyelid, brow, temple, and forehead. The middle face is the lower eyelids, cheeks, and nose, meaning the mouth and jawline belong to the lower facial third. Typical signs of aging in the middle third are cheek hollowing, plump under-eyes, and shadows that accentuate marionette-like folds that can develop under the nasal tip. (2)

To remedy the effects of aging in the face, New You’s professional injectors use dermal fillers. They are injectable cosmetics made up of active ingredients like hyaluronic acid. When precisely placed, they target specific layers of facial tissue to add volume to the cheeks. They can also lift your cheek contour to create a youthful-looking structure. HA fillers successfully plump and hydrate the skin with little discomfort and no downtime.

Popular Dermal Fillers Offered at New You

Here at New You, we offer a wide range of dermal fillers for cheek augmentation including:

  • Amalian – HA filler collection containing no animal products. Since hyaluronic acid retains water, fillers that use it as an active ingredient hydrate the skin and add volume. The results of Amalian filler injection are long-lasting and highly noticeable.
  • Radiesse – This filler collection contains calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres to stimulate collagen growth and elastin production. They are biostimulatory and the gel consistency of the filler mimics bone production to add structure to the face when injected.

Benefits of Cheek Fillers

With multiple options available, dermal fillers offer extremely customizable treatment plans.

Cheek fillers provide patients with:

  • Improved volume and shape
  • Lifted and defined cheekbones
  • Reduced wrinkle appearance
  • Improved facial symmetry
  • Immediate results

Compared to cosmetic surgery, fillers are:

  • Less expensive
  • Minimally invasive
  • Low risk with high reward
  • Dissolvable (HA fillers only)
  • A quick and comfortable treatment

Ideal Candidates

Cheek fillers are intended for those experiencing the effects of facial aging. The ideal candidate is in good health with no underlying medical conditions affecting their healing ability. They are someone who wishes to improve the contour of their cheeks and add radiance to their skin. They have reasonable expectations and are nonsmokers. We require those who smoke to quit at least one week before their injection appointment. The chemicals in tobacco and nicotine negatively affect healing ability and recovery time. Since cheek fillers are non-permanent, patients must be aware that maintenance sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired contour.

Personal Consultation in Mississauga

At New You, we offer private consultations for each of our patients. You will be able to talk to one of our providers about cheek fillers and whether they are right for you. This consultation will include an assessment of your areas of concern to help your provider plan the most effective treatment plan for you. We will ask you about your cosmetic desires and medical history. Please arrive at this appointment with all your questions prepared and a clear idea of your desired contour. At the end of this meeting, we will assist you in scheduling your cheek filler appointment.


There is little preparation required for cheek filler treatments. Dermal fillers are suitable for many types of patients and the process is simple.

Before receiving cheek fillers, you should:

  • Refrain from taking NSAIDs like aspirin and ibuprofen
  • Avoid alcohol and herbal supplements like vitamin E
  • Keep your skincare regimen plain and simple
  • Wear sun protection when in direct sunlight
  • Moisturize regularly

On the day of your treatment at New You, please arrive with a clean face free of makeup. You may, however, apply makeup soon after the treatment is finished. The minimally invasive nature of cheek fillers allows you to return to your typical activities right after, so you may continue your schedule as usual immediately following treatment.

Cheek Filler Procedure Details

Your provider starts the filler session by gently cleansing the skin and disinfecting the area. Depending on the type of filler being used, they may offer you a topical numbing cream beforehand to keep you comfortable. Once the injectable is prepared, they administer the filler at precise depths in your treatment areas. Your provider carefully places the filler in predetermined locations to gauge symmetry and facial unity. Dermal filler administration typically takes thirty to forty-five minutes to complete depending on your specific needs.

Recovery & Results

After cheek filler treatment, you may experience slight discomfort around the injection site. Your provider may supply a cooling treatment to soothe any inflammation. Place this on the site for ten to fifteen minutes to reduce residual redness. Any swelling is minimal and inflammation should dissipate after a few hours.

Your results may be instantly visible and will only get better with time. Depending on the chosen filler, your skin’s collagen regenerates and increases after stimulation. This increases your skin’s radiance and glow from the inside out. Each filler provides long-lasting volume and cheek contour. Your cheeks will be fuller, more pronounced, and lifted, rejuvenating the entire facial profile.
