In the clinical study, 86% of subjects had an improvement in their cheek fullness 6 months, and the results lasted up to 2 years in a majority of subjects. Most subjects also experienced moderate tenderness, swelling, firmness and/or lumps and bumps at the injection site which generally lasted 2 to 4 weeks.
