Cheek augmentation or mid-face volume restoration is highly popular with all providers at Utah Facial Plastics. So how long do cheek fillers last? Depending on whether you get Restylane Lyft or Juvederm Voluma, you can expect your results to last somewhere between 12 to 24 months. It is also recommended that you have a touch-up treatment at 12 months to help maintain and prolong your results.
Who is a Good Candidate for Cheek Filler?
As we age our face, our cheeks lose volume, start to droop and can make one appear older. Losing volume in our cheeks can also cause nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth) appear more prominent and add to jowl laxity. Using either Juvederm Voluma or Restylane Lyft can restore volume back into the cheeks and correct other mid face volume loss.
Cheek filler is also for younger patients who do not have flattened or sagging skin but who are trying to achieve more prominent cheek bones. Adding either Juverderm Voluma or Restylane Lyft can augment the cheek and add definition to create a smooth contour.
What is the Difference Between Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft?
There are so many different fillers available today. Every filler is unique and is created for specific area of the face. Juvederm Voluma is made specifically for cheek augmentation and studies show that on average, it lasts up to 24 months. Voluma was the first product to be FDA approved to restore volume loss in the cheek area. As of now at Utah Facial Plastics, one full syringe of Voluma costs $775 and more than one syringe may be needed for full correction.
Restylane Lyft is another popular filler that is used for non-surgical cheek augmentation. Lyft is created by Restylane and is FDA approved to last anywhere between 12-18 months. Restylane Lyft is used for lifting the cheeks and smoothing smile lines. At this time, a full syringe of Lyft is $650 and as with Voluma, more than one syringe may be needed.
Both fillers are hyaluronic acid based and work well to restore volume and augment the cheek area. One main difference between that two is that Voluma lasts longer than Lyft on average and is more commonly used by our providers. Voluma is also a little softer which makes it a great product for patients with thinner skin.
