The cheeks are one of the facial areas which show early signs of aging. Due to loss of subcutaneous fat in the cheek area, there is an accompanying loss of volume, as well as elasticity, that makes one look gaunt and feel older than they ought to.

Non-surgical aesthetic treatment for this is aimed at restoring the lost volume and sculpting the cheekbones, thereby bringing a lift and harmonisation to the mid face, as well as an overall rejuvenated look.

This is achieved through careful injection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers into the superficial or deep layers of the dermis, the aim being not just to augment the cheeks, but also to employ a holistic facial approach to the treatment, keeping in mind, the role of the cheeks in facial symmetry and balance.

At Derma Institute, training on this procedure is offered on our 1-Day Advanced Dermal Filler and 2-Day Combined Botox and Filler Course.

Our delegates will learn vital concepts such as facial ratios, and principles of aesthetics, as well as the requisite practical knowledge of cheek enhancement for safe and confident practice.


As with many other non-surgical facial aesthetic treatments, the advent of dermal fillers has set the demand for non-invasive cheek enhancement on a steadily rising trend.

Patients looking to reverse the signs of facial aging can now do so quicker and at considerably less risk, increased affordability, and with no down time.

This provides an excellent source of revenue for the aesthetic practitioner.
