Loss of volume on the cheeks can sometimes lead to the formation of jowls and more pronounced nasolabial folds. While these signs of aging are extremely common, they can often make you look older and more tired than you feel. Cheek augmentation is a minimally invasive treatment that may be ideal for you if your goal is to restore plumpness, volume, and youth to your face.
Here’s a closer look at how cheek augmentation is performed and how to contact The Vein Institute of Hunterdon when you’re ready to schedule a consultation.
What Is Cheek Augmentation?
Cheek augmentation is a facial rejuvenation treatment for the cheeks. It restores volume and plumpness to cheeks that may be sagging, hollow and/or loose.
Cheek augmentation is ideal for anyone who wants to restore a youthful appearance to their cheeks and jawline or whose cheeks are loose due to weight loss, sun exposure and smoking. This treatment may also restore face symmetry and make its shape more aesthetically appealing.
What Does Cheek Augmentation Accomplish?
The primary goal of cheek augmentation is to reduce signs of aging on your face that may be more pronounced on behalf of loose or sagging cheeks. This treatment can also boost your self-esteem and make you feel more confident about how you look.
Cheek augmentation may even potentially reverse the damage that may have been caused by lifestyle behaviors you no longer practice such as smoking, heavy alcohol use, neglecting sunscreen and eating unhealthy foods that deplete your collagen levels. Your provider can also give you pointers on how to prolong your results using a combination of exercise, good nutrition, quality sleep and high-quality skincare products.
What Are Treatment Options for Cheek Augmentation?
Dermal fillers are an optimal treatment option for cheek augmentation. Dermal fillers are minimally invasive, long-lasting and take just a few minutes to administer. These injectable treatments contain hyaluronic acid and other medical-grade ingredients that restore hydration to your face and increase collagen production. This effect has the potential to make your face look younger and plumper and lift and enhance the definition of your cheeks.
Cheek augmentation using dermal fillers produces no downtime—meaning you can resume your usual activities immediately after your appointment. It is relatively painless compared with more invasive treatments like facelift surgery that require general anesthesia and weeks of downtime and recovery.
What Else Can Dermal Fillers Treat?
In addition to rejuvenating your cheeks, dermal fillers can reduce signs of aging on the lips, around the mouth and on various parts of the face that are hollow or that have lost volume. Dermal fillers can also fill in smokers’ lines around the mouth to reduce their appearance.
