I’m Feelin’ Cheeky! What Happens Next?

Your results are immediate, so our guess is you’ll be checking your cheeks out quite a bit! The filler will settle and look more natural over the next two weeks.

How long does it last?

Typically cheek injections last 1-2 years depending on multiple factors including product used.

Numbness and Swelling

You may experience slight numbness for the next 2-3 hours. You may have slight swelling for up to two weeks; severe swelling is fairly uncommon. We are happy to provide an "anti-swelling medication" if needed.

What can I take for discomfort?

We suggest Tylenol, but we can also recommend herbal supplements that may help heal you faster. Ice will help reduce inflammation and help with discomfort.

Will I Bruise?

Some people are predisposed to bruise. We suggest that you avoid vitamins, alcohol, and ibuprofen products to minimize the chance of bruising. Bruises can last 2-3 days or up to 2 weeks depending on type and location. Arnica pills ($50) can be purchased during your visit that can help heal bruises. Occasionally, we may suggest a follow up laser appointment to help speed up more severe bruises.

When can I work out?


Can I fly?

Yes, but remember flying increases swelling.

What if I want more?

You’re in luck! We offer specials on follow-up syringes within the first month of treatment. The optimal dose of filler is different for everyone. It is very common in this area to want another syringe!
