Smoother, Plumper, Lifted - Restore A More Rested, Youthful Look In Minutes

While some degree of aging is natural, you don’t have to accept these changes as inevitable. At Dr. Lanna Aesthetics, we specialize in cosmetic filler injections that can refresh and rejuvenate your under eye and cheek area. 

With expertly administered treatments, we can soften lines, reduce under eye bags, restore lost volume and give you a more youthful appearance.

What Causes Under Eye and Cheek Area Aging?

To understand how cosmetic fillers can rejuvenate your eyes and midface, it helps to first understand what causes these areas to lose their youthful appearance over time. There are several key factors that contribute to aging in these areas:

Collagen and Elastin Breakdown

Collagen and elastin are proteins in the skin that keep it firm, supple and resilient. As we age, our bodies produce less of these proteins, causing skin to lose elasticity and sag. This leads to wrinkles, jowls and drooping cheeks.

Facial Fat Atrophy

We start losing facial fat in our mid to late 20s. This fat gives the face its youthful plumpness. Around the eyes and cheeks, fat loss causes hollowing and makes skin look thinner.

Bone Loss

Over time, the bones of the face can lose density and reabsorb. This leads to loss of facial volume, especially around the eyes, temples and cheeks.

Skin Thinning

Skin around the eyes is already the thinnest on the body. With age, it becomes even thinner and translucent looking. Veins and hollows become more visible.

Sun Exposure

UV rays break down collagen and damage skin. This accelerates aging, especially around the delicate eye area.


Over decades, gravity pulls skin down. This stretches and separates tissues around eyes and cheeks.

Now that you understand what leads to under eye bags, cheek hollowness and other signs of aging, let’s explore how cosmetic fillers can help.

What Do Under Eye and Cheek Fillers Do?

Dermal fillers are injectable products that add volume just below the surface of the skin. Dr. Lanna uses hyaluronic acid fillers which have a gel-like consistency. When expertly injected, they plump up skin and replace volume that’s been lost with age.

Here are some of the rejuvenating effects that cosmetic fillers provide:

  • Plump Under Eye Area - Fillers can smooth hollows and minimize the appearance of dark circles and bags under eyes. This reduces sunken looking skin.
  • Lift Cheeks - Adding volume to the cheek area lifts sagging skin and restores a heart shaped face and contoured cheekbones.
  • Smooth Fine Lines - Hyaluronic acid has hydrating properties that plump and smooth fine lines around the eyes and cheek.
  • Add Volume - Replacing lost facial fat and volume recreates a youthful fullness to the midface and under eye area.

There are a variety of dermal fillers that can achieve these rejuvenating effects. At Dr. Lanna Aesthetics, we use advanced hyaluronic acid fillers which offer several benefits:

Hyaluronic Acid Benefits

  • Long lasting but not permanent; lasts 6-24 months
  • Naturally hydrating properties improve skin
  • Well-tolerated by most patients
  • Can be reversed with hyaluronidase if needed
  • Brands like Juvederm and Restylane have years of proven results

With dozens of brands and formulations available, identifying the optimal fillers for each patient’s unique needs takes expert skill and artistic vision. That’s why customized treatment plans are so important.

Are Cheek Fillers Effective for Under Eye Bags?

Now that you understand the rejuvenating effects of fillers for the under eye and cheek area, you may be wondering: can cheek fillers minimize the look of under eye bags? The answer is yes! Here’s how it works:

Filler “Migration”

With hyaluronic acid fillers, some of the gel will naturally move or “migrate” under the skin over time. This means fillers injected into the cheeks will gradually distribute outward and downward.

Indirect Under Eye Lift

This migration slightly lifts the cheek-lid junction, indirectly reducing under eye hollowness. It’s like giving the under eye area a lift from above.

More Complete Result

For optimal improvement, many patients do cheek and under eye filler together. This addresses under eye concerns directly while also lifting from above.

Expertise is Key

Filler migration results must look subtle and natural. Our expert injectors strategically place filler to lift - not arbitrarily overfill - your cheeks.

The takeaway? Yes, cheek fillers can reduce the look of under eye bags. But the results require artistry and expertise to look natural. 

Comparing Under Eye vs. Cheek Fillers

Now that you understand how cheek fillers can improve under eye aging, let’s compare the differences between under eye and cheek filler treatments.

Under Eye FillersCheek Fillers

For complete facial rejuvenation, many patients do a combination of under eye and cheek fillers. This addresses all areas of concern for natural, balanced results. Our founder Dr. Lanna is world renowned for her filler techniques that create beautiful, natural-looking results.

Cosmetic Filler For Under Eye And Cheek Area FAQs

Which Cheek Fillers Work Best for Under Eye Hollows?

The fillers that produce the migration effect are hyaluronic acid-based, meaning products like Juvederm and Restylane. Some of the most popular options are Juvederm Voluma for dramatic lifting capacity, and Restylane Lyft for its versatility.

How Long Will the Results Last?

That depends on the specific filler used, but typically you can expect cheek fillers to improve the under eye area for 9-12 months for Restylane, and 12-24 months for Juvederm Voluma. Then you may want a touch up treatment to maintain your refreshed eye appearance.

What Results Can I Expect from Cheek Fillers Under the Eyes?

Most patients see a reduction in dark circles, smoothing of fine lines, lifting of under eye bags, and filling of hollow tear troughs. The whole eye area just looks brighter and more vibrant. As a bonus, cheek fillers also give your midface a lift, improving contours along the nose and mouth too. 

How is the Cheek Filler Procedure Performed?

Don't worry - it's a very quick and comfortable office visit. We apply a topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable. Then using an ultra-fine needle, your expert injector will strategically place small amounts of filler in the cheek area. The whole appointment takes about 15-30 minutes. You'll be out the door and on your way in no time!
