As we age, our body’s natural fat begins to deteriorate. This results in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles, and a reduction of volume. Cheek fillers can rejuvenate the mid-face area to help correct volume loss, add contour, as well as lift and improve other areas of your face! Here at ZONA we use the following dermal fillers for the cheeks; Radiesse, Restylane Lyft, or Juvederm Voluma because of how supportive they are. Most men and women could use cheek filler at some point in their life. If treated at the first signs of facial heaviness, you can help prevent mid-face volume loss and the dropping of the jowls.
Prior to filler appointments we recommend avoiding any caffeine, anti-inflammatory or blood thinning medications, if possible. For all dermal fillers we start by numbing the area with a topical numbing cream, this makes the treatment more comfortable. During the appointment, small amounts of filler will be injected at several places along the cheekbone. This process helps to contour and lift the mid-face from the inside out. Dermal filler in this area can also restore volume to the apples of your cheeks helping to minimize nasolabial folds and even tear troughs.
Cheek filler appointments are quick and virtually painless taking around 45 minutes. There is little to no downtime needed and with any injection, there is always swelling and potential bruising to be expected. The results will last up to 12 months (individual results may vary).
