Cheeks & Chin
Facial Volume Loss
Whether you are lacking definition in your cheeks (no cheekbones) or are experiencing just an overall loss in facial volume due to age or weight loss, our staff at Skin Science can use dermal fillers to naturally create and enhance your facial profile. We can also enhance a receding chin or a give a more striking chin profile with dermal filler.
Using fillers helps to replace lost volume. The results are very natural, giving a more refreshed and younger appearance to the delicate area. Restylane and other dermal fillers are an excellent choice to increase volume in the cheeks and chin. We use an appropriate numbing agent so the treatment is comfortable and results are immediate; typically lasting 6 to 9 months and, in some cases, even longer*.

Our staff at Skin Science can give you the cheek structure and overall volume that you are seeking. Injectable dermal fillers Restylane® and Juvederm® can effectively treat this problem with immediate results.*
Our gifted medical staff are experts with the cosmetic fillers:
A successful soft tissue filler, Restylane Silk® Lyft can be used to boost skin’s volume, reducing the appearance of scars and wrinkles for a soft, smooth, and youthful look.* Additionally, Restylane® injections may be used to enhance the size and shape of the lips. Typically performed in under an hour at our Naperville office, Restylane® injections are associated with little discomfort or side effects*, and most patients are able to return to work and normal activities immediately after their visit. The results of Restylane® injections are incredibly natural and last four months* or more before maintenance treatments.
Juvederm Voluma® XC As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.*
For a completely refreshed, outstanding result, you may combine dermal fillers with Botox injections.
Facial fillers are given with a very fine needle to ensure comfort. Safe and FDA-approved, dermal fillers are very rarely associated with complications of any kind.*
Treatment usually only takes 15 to 30 minutes. The effects of facial filler injections are immediate, but they also often improve over time with the production of new collagen. Results typically last 6 months to 1 year, with repeated treatments often lasting longer. After treatment with dermal fillers, you should avoid the sun, alcohol, cold outdoor activities, and exercise for 24 hours.*
You may reapply your makeup and go home or return to work after you have had dermal filler injections. Most side effects such as mild redness or tenderness at the injection sites, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, itching, bruising, or discoloration are temporary (less than 5 days).*
*Disclaimer: With injectable dermal fillers, there is no guarantee of specific results and the results may vary.
