The Multiple Benefits of Cheek Fillers

Here at Luxe Skin, we want you to feel confident in getting your procedure done, no matter if it’s a less-invasive procedure like getting cheek fillers or a more invasive procedure like liposuction. We want to help you learn to feel confident and comfortable in your skin.

Trying to decide if you should get cheek fillers? Read on to find out more:

What Exactly Are Cheek Fillers?

Cheek filler is a cosmetic procedure that injects fillers under the skin to give your skin a fuller, more youthful look. Your dermatologist will inject these dermal fillers under your skin into the soft tissue on your target areas to give more fullness and definition to your skin.

You can get cheek filler for a wide range of reasons: to even out your skin, to give yourself a more youthful appearance, to fill in wrinkles and smooth lines, or just because you want to! You don’t need to try to justify getting cheek filler if it’s something you’re interested in or feel like you might benefit from. Just make sure that you speak to your dermatologist before making any decisions regarding your skin health!

If you’re wanting to look into cheek filler in Glasgow or want some more information about if cheek filler may be right for you, then contact our office to schedule a consultation appointment to speak with our physicians.

What Are the Types of Cheek Fillers?

There are four main types of cheek filler. These four types are:

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid cheek filler is the most common type of dermal and cheek filler on the market. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that gives your skin a natural look when you’re getting cheek filler. This is the most common type of filler used by dermatologists and skin clinics, and the results from this type of filler typically last about a year.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite

Calcium Hydroxylapatite is another naturally occurring substance found in your bones. This filler is typically most used for deeper lines and wrinkles and lasts for approximately fifteen months instead of twelve like Hyaluronic Acid. This type of filler is also commonly used to add fullness to your cheekbones.

Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA)

Poly-L-Lactic Acid, also known as PLLA, is a synthetic filler, meaning that this substance doesn’t occur naturally in your body. Instead, PLLA promotes the growth of collagen in your skin to lessen the effects of ageing skin. This type of filler usually lasts about two years, but it has been known to last for longer periods due to its collagen-stimulating properties.

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)

Polymethylmethacrylate, or PMMA, is another type of synthetic cheek filler that is commonly used by dermatologists. Instead of being a liquid or a gel, this type of filler consists of tiny collagen beads that are perfect for deeper lines and wrinkles. Because this type of filler is firmer, it’s ideal for adding firmness to your cheeks. PMMA can last for years, which is much longer than any of the other types of filler, but you should keep in mind that it may need to be injected more than once to achieve this effect.

If you’re concerned about what type of filler is best for you and your skin, be sure to consult with your dermatologist before making the decision.

What Are the Benefits of Cheek Filler?

Cheek filler and plastic surgery in general can have many incredible benefits–just look at the cheek filler before and after photos! However, if you’re still on the fence about taking the plunge, here are some reasons why cheek filler may be what you’re looking for:

Less Expensive

Compared to traditional plastic surgery, receiving cheek filler is a much more cost-effective choice to make. While the effects of cheek filler aren’t permanent like some forms of plastic surgery, the cost more than makes up for it. Here at Luxe Skin, our cheek filler treatment prices start as low as £350!

Immediate Results

When you receive cheek filler, you won’t have to wait for the results to be visible. While it may take a day or two for the filler to settle and any potential bruising to fade, your cheek filler results will appear immediately after the procedure. You do not need to wait, nail-biting and knee shaking, to make sure that the procedure you may have to spend hundreds of pounds on actually worked. With cheek filler, you can see right away.

Non-Permanent Results

While some people may see non-permanent results as a drawback, this couldn’t be farther from the truth in this situation. Unlike surgery, cheek filler is not a permanent procedure. That means if you aren’t pleased by something with your procedure, time will help it to fade. Also, due to the nature of fillers, many fillers under the skin can be moulded slightly by your dermatologist if the filler doesn’t settle in the right place.

Younger Look and More Confidence

While people get cheek filler and other fillers done for a myriad of reasons, one of the top reasons is that they simply want to change their look, whether that be a more youthful look or just wanting to even out their facial features. When people have the ability to change their appearance to the way they choose, they can feel more confident and comfortable in their skin. No matter what, if someone is comfortable and happy in their own skin, their confidence level soars.

Quick Recovery Time

One of the highlights of having a less-invasive procedure like a cheek filler as opposed to traditional plastic surgery is the quick recovery time. Recovery is so quick that if you aren’t opposed to going out with bruises on your face, you’ll likely be able to return to your normal activities the day after the procedure.

Of course, as mentioned above, you’re likely to have some bruising or redness on the skin after the procedure. This, however, fades within a few days, leaving your skin clear, healthy, and hydrated.

Are There Any Risks to Cheek Filler?

Just like with any other medical procedure, there will always be risks. In comparison, though, the risks for cheek filler are much less than those of traditional plastic surgery. You may experience some redness and bruising when it comes to the procedure, but that will likely be the extent of any kind of risks or results.

Before you schedule your procedure, be sure to talk to your dermatologist just to confirm that there are no additional risks or potential adverse effects you may experience when receiving cheek filler. Ensure there are no ingredients you may be allergic to and confirm that none of the other parts of the procedure may be harmful to you (like a latex allergy, iodine allergy, etc.). As long as you take the proper precautions, then cheek filler should be a relatively safe and harmless procedure.

    I got fillers done on my nose to mouth lines and mouth to chin lines, I don’t really like needles but was pleasantly surprised as it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, there was a little nip and the procedure was over and done with, in no time at all. Dr Qureshi was very professional, he talked me through the procedure as he was doing it, putting me at ease. I saw a slight difference straight away but as the day went on it got better. I am amazed at the results, I will definitely be going back for more and I will be recommending Dr Qureshi to all my friends.


    Vanessa B

    My friend Clare recommended Doctor Q to me. I had been going to a different clinic and had some problems after lip fillers but that practitioner would not return my calls and would not help me. Doctor Q was able to fix my lips and I just love them. Thanks so much Doctor Q.


    Pamela S

    Dr Q is very experienced and professional! He makes you feel totally at ease and he “really” listens to you & tailors his treatment to suit you personally. I have been to a couple of different places for my Botox but Dr Q is by far the best. If you want quality care, treatments and results then you should definitely go to Luxe Skin. Thanks again Doctor Q – see you soon 🙂


    Gayle C

    My sister and myself went to Dr Qureshi’s clinic in Glasgow, he was very professional and talked us through the process of Botox injections, as it was our first time. We were very anxious but Dr Qureshi answered all our queries and explained everything very professionally and put us at ease. I would highly recommend Dr Qureshi and will return as we were both delighted & very happy with our before & after care and much softer younger looking eyes/frown lines. I also contacted Dr Qureshi by text message and he always replied very quickly & professionally. He also does discounts on 1 or more areas. Highly recommended and very professional clinic with affordable prices.


    Alison M

    I went to a national chain clinic before and did not realise that the treatment was not done by a doctor. They actually wanted much more money when I said I wanted a doctor to carry out my treatment. At Luxe Skin, I am always seen by Doctor Q. He is so easy to contact at any time. No receptionists or secretaries, you speak to him directly. I had Botox and fillers and I love the results. My forehead is so smooth and the deep lines around my nose have faded away.


    Claire J

    I’ve been getting botox for over two years now in South Africa. After moving to the UK I had it done with one other provider. It was the worst experience, painful, ineffective and I had a black eye for two weeks. I came to see Dr Qureshi feeling a little anxious. He instantly put me at ease and it was the best results I’ve ever had, completely painless and he got it right on the 1st go. Thrilled with the results and I will become a regular of his now.


    Louise M

    I came to Dr Qureshi as i felt i had developed smokers’ lines around my mouth which had been bothering me for many years. He recommended Fillers and Botox on my upper lip and I am delighted with the results. The lines have completely gone and i really feel like a new woman. Major confidence boost and I will be most certainly a regular client as I was very well looked after also. Thank you.


    Caroline R

    Thank you Dr Q for amazing results! I’ll recommend you to my friends. I’ll be booking my face plan this week thanks again! My friend will be booking with you this week too.


    Linda R

    A few months ago I went to Dr Usman Qureshi for a wrinkle reduction treatment, I was so delighted with my treatment, I even took my mum and sister along with me this time so we could all have the treatments together. My mum had never had the treatment before and so was a little nervous, Dr Q put her at ease right away and carried out the procedure quickly and professionally. We are all delighted with the results and looking and feeling fabulous! Thanks Dr Q, see you soon.


    Stephen W

    The hollows under my eyes used to get me down but I was scared to get anything done. Doctor Q explained the procedure to me. He showed me before and after pictures of what it would look like. And I love the result. I wish I would have got this done much sooner.


    Nicole C

    This was my first time having Botox. I wanted to get rid of my frown lines and lift my eyebrows. Dr Qureshi explained everything to me clearly and answered all my questions (and I had a lot). He has very light hands, I hardly felt a thing. I will definitely be back with my friends.


    Jasmine H

    Thanks Doctor Q, I love my lips. Thanks for using the anaesthetic, it made a huge difference. I was really nervous but you made me feel at ease. See you in a few months.


    Emma W

    I went to Dr Qureshi for my first ever Botox treatment, he was extremely professional and listened to what I wanted and what my expectations were. Treatment was quick and painless and I was made to feel at ease. After a few days, I could see visible effects and it is everything I expected. I will now return for subsequent treatments and am very happy with the service he provides.


    Joan S

    Whenever I have had Botox in the past, I had these annoying lines above my eyebrows which would never go away. I went to Dr Q and he got rid of them without any problem! I am thrilled.



    Whenever I had Botox in the past, my eyebrows dropped. I kept telling my previous practitioner but they said that’s the way it will be for me. I was amazed at the results at Luxe Skin. My frown has gone and eyebrows have lifted. I feel so much fresher. I have even signed up to Face Plan at Luxe Skin.


    Charlotte R

    I wanted fillers under my eyes to fill the hollows. I was scared as this as it is such a sensitive area. Doctor Q used a cannula and was very gentle. Amazing result. Thank you so much Dr Q.


    Yvonne M

    I used to go to this other place to get Botox done because it was cheap. But the last time my eyelid drooped. I called the practitioner but she kept ignoring me and was very rude. I went to Doctor Q. He explained that side effects can happen but there are ways to reduce the risk. He gave me some eye drops which helped by eyelid droop and after a month it resolved completely. I now get Botox at Luxe Skin. I would highly recommend Doctor Q.


    Mary B

    I used to go to a different clinic which was much cheaper but I was never satisfied with the results. I always felt that the treatment was rushed. I wanted to try someone else and went to Doctor Q. He really listened to me and advised me on treatments that met my needs. I had Botox to 3 areas and filler around the mouth and nose. He is always available by phone or email for advice. I am really happy with the results.



    I had my first ever Botox in 2 areas and after just 5 days can see a very positive difference. Dr Q is very professional and his clinic reflects this too. It was carried out after a consultation and did not take long. Luxe also offer payment plans which is also a big plus.I will definitely be a returning customer as I have every confidence in Dr Q. and love the result on my 54 year old face!Many thanks.


    Lee M

    Dr. Q has done my lip fillers and wrinkle reduction. Lots of people tell me I’m looking really well but my look is natural so they don’t always guess I’ve had any work done and that’s exactly what I wanted. Dr. Q listens well and therefore provides the look you want. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the clinic. Treatments are painless (I use anaesthetic cream for lip fillers). The clinic is clean and bright. Love my little visits!
