Cheeks

Cheek Enhancement with Dermal Fillers are injections performed to restore volume to the midface and create a more defined bone structure. Depending on your aesthetic goals, we can use dermal fillers like Voluma to contour the cheekbones creating the ‘snatched super model look’ or provide volume restoration which aids in lifting sagging skin. Filling the cheeks can also benefit the surrounding areas of the face such as the undereyes, nasolabial folds, the marionette lines and the Jowls due to it’s lifting effect. Another modality we commonly utilize at our office is PDO threads also known as a non-invasive face lift. Threads work by lifting loose skin, stimulating collagen and revealing your bone structure.

Contouring

Young or not, contouring of the cheeks is a major part of our appearance. That’s why there are so many makeup tutorials on where to apply darker or lighter shadows to achieve the perfect lift, symmetry, and proportion. When done right, fillers can do the same type of enhancement but in real layer 3D! And their results can last up to 2 years!

All these changes together result in the decrease of cheek volume which causes the before and after thinning skin to hang down and create jowls. The once wider width on upper part of face narrows, and the once narrow lower part of the face widens. We call this the reversing triangle. cheeks

Re-Inflating the Areas of Deflation

With great care, the face can be re-inflated to re-establish lost volume and lift the skin back towards its original position. Unfortunately, many hyper-focus on this lift and lose site of the final result. Our injectors have studied and learned how to avoid this mistake and to counsel patients against injecting beyond natural proportions.

Lower Cheek Lines

As the firmness of our skin decreases due to the loss of collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, and fat, the lower cheek area can crease with movement. Collagen stimulating agents and fillers can help re-establish the firmness in this region to smooth out some of the collapse. These procedures include use of Novathreads, microneedling, PRP, radiofrequency such as Viora, and lasers such as Lasergenesis.
