Lift, Laugh, Love | Get A Natural Look with Cheek Fillers Near Portland
There are so many things we control in our lives. From where we choose to shop to the color we dye our hair, we make hundreds of decisions every day.
But unfortunately, there’s one thing that nobody has control over—the aging process. As much as we try to stop it, aging is going to happen. And it’s evident in our appearance. From your forehead to your feet, skin begins to show signs of aging around age 30.
If you’ve been dreaming about the smooth, lifted, and healthy skin of your early 20’s, you’re not alone. While it’s impossible to turn back the clock, cheek fillers are a great way to get back to a more youthful appearance.
West Linn Aesthetics has a team of experts who specialize in minimally-invasive treatments to help patients look and feel their best. With the most advanced training and the latest techniques, our providers are uniquely qualified to give patients the natural-looking results of a facelift with fillers.
If you’re ready to restore your natural beauty, West Linn Aesthetics offers dermal fillers near Portland to treat:
- Hollow cheeks

- Thin lips
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- And more!
Why use dermal filler?
Starting around age 30, our bodies undergo some serious changes that impact our appearance. One of the most notable is the decrease in collagen production.
What is collagen?
Collagen is a protein found throughout the body. It accounts for nearly 30% of the body’s total protein. Collagen gives our skin structure, strength, and elasticity. Maybe you’re starting to see some sagging around the eyes, or the appearance of jowls, and its causing you to not feel like yourself. That’s because after age 30, we start losing collagen, the building blocks of our skin, resulting in the changes to your appearance that give away your age—wrinkles, sagging skin, and volume loss.
How can dermal fillers help?
Dermal fillers work to restore your skin in several ways.
By injecting filler underneath the skin, it adds volume to the face. So if you notice your face isn’t looking as full as it used to, restoring lost volume with cheek fillers could be the answer.
Dermal fillers can help lift the skin for a more youthful and defined appearance. West Linn Aesthetics is one of the only clinics in Oregon certified in ArqueDerma, an injection technique otherwise known as the “liquid facelift.” Liquid meaning hyaluronic liquid gel and facelift meaning lifting your tissue to restore structure to the face.
Fillers help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. This gives the skin a healthier and tighter appearance.
Increasing collagen production
The real magic of filler is its long-term effects on collagen production (although not all fillers are created equal.) West Linn Aesthetics uses filler made of hyaluronic acid that increases your body’s collagen production over time.

What areas should I get filler?
At West Linn Aesthetics, our favorite place to use filler is the mid and lower face. Patients love this because they see results in more than just the treatment area. For example, when we lift the mid-face, it naturally lifts the lower face. Likewise, when we lift the lower face, it naturally lifts the neck.
If you want to visibly lift your cheekbones, smooth out wrinkles, and define your look, book an appointment at West Linn Aesthetics to discuss cheek fillers near Portland.
What are my options for cheek filler near Portland?
As mentioned earlier, not all fillers are created equal, so it’s important to do your research. The filler you need depends on the results you want to achieve. Our injectors at West Linn Aesthetics are highly trained and will recommend the best filler to achieve your goals.
We offer two effective fillers to plump and lift your cheeks—Juvéderm® and Restylane®.
Juvéderm is one of our most popular hyaluronic acid-based fillers. It’s produced by Allergan, a gold standard in the aesthetic industry. They invest millions of dollars into the research and development of their products to ensure they are safe and effective.
Restylane is also a hyaluronic acid-based filler. The main difference between Restylane and Juvederm® is the texture. Our team can help you decide which is the best option for you.
What separates a good filler treatment from a bad one?
You’ve probably seen pictures of celebrities who got bad filler procedures and now have the dreaded “pillow face.” We are happy to report that patients at West Linn Aesthetics do NOT walk away looking like this. We love the Northwest Natural look, and we use filler to subtly enhance your natural features.
The pillow face results from two things–overfilling and bad technique.
Filler is measured by the syringe. The amount of filler you need depends on the area you’d like treated and your desired results. If you see someone with blown-up cheeks after getting an unfortunate filler treatment, it was likely the result of an untrained injector who used too much filler.
When you come to West Linn Aesthetics, the first thing you’ll do is sit down with one of our providers. During this consultation, we’ll ask questions to get to know you and your desired results. Then, we’ll recommend how many syringes you need for that perfect look.
You do not have to worry about getting too much filler at West Linn Aesthetics. We want you to have natural results that you love, and we know exactly how to get you there.
Each person is different, but in general, we recommend 1 syringe of filler for every 10 years of life. We call that “Decade Dosing™.”
If this seems like a lot, let us assure you that it’s not! Each syringe has the equivalent of about ⅕ of a tablespoon of gel. That’s the size of a blueberry!
The technique used by the injector plays a huge role in how your end results will look. Even if an injector uses the right amount of filler, poor technique will always result in poor results.
At West Linn Aesthetics, our injectors undergo rigorous training and always work to improve their skills.
We are one of the few clinics in Oregon to offer Arquederma®, a patented injection technique that delivers amazing results. Created by Leslie Fletcher, a highly respected nurse injector, Arquederma is known as the “liquid facelift.” Using the same hyaluronic acid fillers you know and love, our injectors use the Arquederma® technique to give patients similar results to a facelift—without going under the knife!
We train all our injectors in multiple techniques and use a combination for the best results.
We’ve perfected the process
If you’re interested in cheek fillers near Portland, let’s go over what you can expect at West Linn Aesthetics.
During your consultation, you’ll sit down with one of our experts to determine the best treatment plan for you. We’ll talk everything dermal filler—recommendations, brands, results, expectations, and more. There will be plenty of time to ask any questions you may have.
We use small needles to minimize discomfort during injections. We can also put a topical numbing cream on the treatment area if you are concerned about pain. Just let us know!
Next, we’ll map out exactly where the injections need to go, and we’ll get to work!
You’ll immediately notice a lift after your filler appointment, but the real magic happens in the weeks to come. As the hyaluronic acid works, your body will continue stimulating collagen production. This means your results will get better with time. Just like all great things, they’re worth the wait.
