Defining cheekbones is a customizable procedure. For example, a thin face might need plumper cheeks, while a round face might need a more angular look. Redefining cheekbones ensures you have gorgeous symmetry and harmony in the face.
Hyaluronic acid gels or poly-L-lactic acid fillers work with your body to help plump up cheeks and give definition to your cheekbones. Some aestheticians and dermatologists call cheek fillers “contour in a syringe.” Talk to your professional to find the right to lift and create structure in your face.
Juvederm® Voluma XC™ is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is safe and effective, and results can last up to two years. Voluma is FDA approved for use in the cheek area, and it also includes lidocaine, a local anesthetic helping minimize pain during treatment.
Restylane®Lyft is used to treat wrinkles and has been proven to plump up the cheeks and define cheekbones. Restylane®Lyft has been on the market since 2015. You should start seeing the effects of Restylane Lyft directly after the procedure, with the full effects more noticeable after a few days. Restylane Lyft lasts for eight to ten months, and there is no downtime following treatment. Do avoid excessive sun exposure, however.
Restylane®Defyne helps smooth away laugh lines and the wrinkles and folds that form at the sides of your nose and run toward the corners of your mouth. Defyne is also used to improve the profile, shape, and size of your chin. Defyne is made from hyaluronic acid and contains lidocaine to numb your skin during treatment. Restylane Defyne is shown to be effective for up to 12 months.
Sculptra®Aesthetic is a Poly-L-lactic acid facial injection used to smooth deep wrinkles and give you back the volume and firmness lost in your cheeks and temples due to aging. Sculptra stimulates new collagen production and is highly recommended. You can see the results of a Sculptra treatment about three months after your initial treatments and results last about two to three years.
First, you will discuss your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for filler treatment. You will be asked about allergies. If you are in good health, you are a candidate for dermal fillers.
Fillers are injected into the facial skin through a very tiny needle. Filler will contour your cheekbones, smooth facial wrinkles, and laugh lines. You will have a more youthful and sculpted appearance.
Poly-L-Lactic acid fillers like Sculptra takes a bit of time to kick-start the body’s production of collagen. The results, however, last longer than hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers are better when used in a recessed eye area or when immediate volume is needed.
Dermal fillers are very safe as long as they are injected by professionals trained in facial aesthetics.
