Cheek filler typically lasts about a year, but the duration of your results can vary based on the filler you receive and how your individual body responds to it. However, your results will not completely go away after a year. Hyaluronic acid stimulates collagen, which is a protein that helps your skin look smooth, elastic, and youthful. This increase in collagen production offers long-term benefits.

Lift and Define
As we age, our facial features go through many changes. One of the most noticeable is the gradual loss of volume and definition in our cheeks. This change can lead to a hollow appearance, and that affects the overall balance of the face.
B+A Medical Aesthetics is a surgeon-owned and operated clinic offering advanced and effective aesthetic treatments. We offer cheek filler to patients looking to lift and tighten the skin, define the cheekbones, restore volume, and more.
We use Restylane as our main go-to cheek filler in Austin. Restylane is a brand of hyaluronic acid-based fillers designed to smooth wrinkles and restore volume in different areas of the face.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps keep skin looking youthful and healthy, but as we age, our natural hyaluronic acid levels decrease. Hyaluronic acid cheek fillers help restore these levels and add volume for a look you’re sure to love.

Candidates for Cheek Fillers
Anyone who wants to restore lost volume, define their cheekbones, or balance their facial features is a good candidate for cheek filler in Austin. Both men and women of all ages can benefit from the confidence boost and rejuvenated appearance that filler can offer.
During your consultation, we will ensure that you are a good candidate for cheek filler. If we believe that a different treatment would better help you reach your goals, our providers will offer honest opinions and treatment recommendations to help you achieve the results you’re looking for.
While filler is generally a quick and easy procedure, it is important to prepare beforehand to ensure the best possible outcomes. We will provide you with comprehensive pre-care instructions at your consultation, but the main things to know are:
- Avoid blood thinners (including Aspirin and Ibuprofen) in the 2 weeks leading up to the procedure
- Avoid drinking red wine in the 3 days leading up to the procedure
- Pre-treat with an antihistamine (like Zyrtec) to decrease post-filler swelling
- On the day of your appointment, arrive with a clean face (no makeup)
Good post-care after cheek filler is essential for optimal healing and results. We will discuss all of our post-care recommendations at your appointment, but you can expect to:
- Apply ice to the treated area to reduce swelling and discomfort
- Avoid strenuous activities in the first 24 to 48 hours to minimize swelling
- Avoid applying pressure or massaging the treated area
- Avoid blood thinners (including Aspirin and Ibuprofen), but you may take Tylenol
- Avoid alcohol in the days after your procedure
- Avoid sunbathing, saunas, tanning, hot tubs, and other exposure to intense heat in the days after your procedure
