Over time, as we age our cheeks begin to flatten and our skin starts to sag causing mid-face volume loss. Thankfully we have an answer to this problem- cheek filler which is designed to add back your volume and lift the cheek area. Results are immediately visible, and there is practically no downtime. Our cheek fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance that is biologically like our own and is naturally present in almost all tissues of the body. It contains lidocaine, so the procedure is comfortable throughout. On the skin, hyaluronic acid acts as a humectant that draws water, keeping the skin plump and supple. Aging causes bone resorption, fat loss and fat descent leading to sunken cheeks and jowls. When cheek fillers are injected, it draws moisture like a sponge to restore volume lost through aging, sun-damage, and other factors. Strategically placed fills look natural and can also diminish lines and nasolabial folds for a more refreshed look that can take years (or even a decade) off your face. Cheek fillers can last for over a year and are metabolized safely by the body.
The procedure is safe, comfortable, and non-surgical. Hyaluronic fillers replace volume lost through collagen degradation and fat loss. Visible results are noticeable immediately, improving further as the fillers settle. When skillfully applied, sculpt natural-looking “cheekbones” for better facial definition. The hyaluronic acid found in Restylane and Juvederm fillers are similar to what we in our own body and metabolized safely.
Juvederm Voluma is a very soft and malleable product indicated to last 24 months. Voluma utilizes a cross-linked technology, which is used for both smile lines and cheeks.
Restylane Lyft is a stronger and less malleable product indicated to last 12 months. Restylane utilizes G-prime technology, which is used for both smile lines and cheeks.
Restylane Contour is a hyaluronic acid filler used for natural-looking cheek augmentation and for the correction of midface contour deficiencies. Contour enhances while allowing a full range of expressions.
