Fundamental facial structures such as cheek bones add so much character and beauty to the face. But as we age our cheeks tend to lose that youthful fullness and hollow out making the shape of the face dramatically different. Restoring cheek structure is easy with the skilled use of modern dermal fillers.
As you age, your face loses natural collagen and elastin, the two elements that give volume to your skin. Also, the face has more than five fat pads that reduce with ageing. Consequently, not only does your facial skin begin to sag, but your cheeks start to “hollow out” as well. This results in a drawn gaunt look.
By skilfully injecting dermal fillers into your cheeks to increase volume in the cheekbone area, your youthful appearance can be restored. Not only will your cheeks look fuller and more youthful, but the wrinkles in and around them will diminish as well.
This procedure is minimally invasive and requires little, if any, down-time. You’ll experience some mild redness, swelling and perhaps some bruising; but most of these side effects should disappear within a day or two. Most people are able to return to their daily activities immediately after the procedure. The fillers last between 9-27 months depending on the product used and the area treated.
