Dermal Fillers for the Cheeks
Aging is a part of life, there is no reason you shouldn’t look as youthful as you feel inside. For a vibrant, refreshed appearance our doctors at Skin Deep Medical Aesthetics, Maria Carracino and Kara Flaherty, work with a range of dermal fillers to add volume and lift to diminish the signs of aging*.
A prominent misconception is that only lines and wrinkles show age. However, as we age, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. The result is a tired look and deepening folds in the skin.
That volume loss can be addressed with dermal fillers. Whether you are looking to regain apple cheeks, or lift your features through added volume over the cheekbones, our doctors will walk you through your options to achieve your individual beauty goals.
What are your options for cheek contouring?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area. In a clinical study patients reported looking up to 5 years younger at 6 months after treatment.
JUVEDERM® dermal fillers have a smooth-consistency Hyaluronic Acid gel. This is due to an innovative manufacturing process called hylacross technology. Hylacross gives JUVEDERM® its unique smooth-gel properties as well as an optimal gel structure that holds up over time.
Juvederm Voluma® is proven to last up to two years*.
RADIESSE® is a cosmetic dermal filler that is setting a new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds.
Radiesse® works below the skin’s surface. Tiny calcium-based microspheres form a “scaffold” to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen to create a natural, full, youthful look. Radiesse® does more than just temporarily fill-in facial lines and wrinkles; it rebuilds your skin’s foundation without the risks associated with permanent fillers.
Over time, your body absorbs the gel carrier while collagen has started to grow and infiltrate the area, replacing the gel with your own, natural tissue. The Radiesse® microspheres continue to provide the support and structure for your body to grow new tissue and collagen until the microspheres are also safely and naturally absorbed into your body.
What can you expect?
You can experience the benefits of dermal fillers in a quick, in-office procedure. During treatment, the doctor will inject the filler under your skin in precise locations to instantly smooth out the wrinkles and folds on your face, increase volume or lift the features. You’ll see the difference immediately!
Are there any side effects?
Normal, injection-related reactions such as mild irritation, edema, swelling, itching, discoloration, or tenderness at the injection site may occur. These conditions typically resolve on their own within one to two days, but may last longer.
