In younger people, adding volume to your cheekbones can help to balance various face shapes to provide more of a contoured look. Cheek filler can also enhance the overall look of your face by adding volume as well as structure to create defined cheekbones – which are always beautiful!
As we age, we lose volume in our faces. The cheek area is often one of the first areas people notice the effects of volume loss. Dermal fillers can increase the volume and definition of these areas, as well as help smooth out the texture of the skin.
Cheek filler also helps with the appearance of the lower face. One of the most common concerns people have is the appearance of nasolabial lines – the lines from the bottom of your nose to the side of your lip. These occur when the volume of the face shifts forward and downward with age. Oh, gravity! Unfortunately, these lines can make a person appear older and more tired. Previously, injectors would all filler directly to these lines to smooth them out (and we still do in some cases). However, the best approach to correct these lines is actually by adding a structured dermal filler in the cheek and cheekbone area, which creates a lifted appearance. We can use dermal fillers to “pin-up” the cheekbones, which therefore softens the nasolabial lines and give a more rejuvenated appearance.
