Facial Volume Loss, And What To Do About It

As we age, the healthy fatty tissue in our faces starts to break down. Once full and supple cheeks, the hallmark of youth, become hollow, causing the midface to look wrinkled and saggy. For most people, this change becomes apparent in their 40s. Fortunately, dermal fillers like Radiesse, Restylane, and Juvederm can counteract facial volume loss and restore you to a younger, more vibrant look. Best of all, there is no need for surgery or downtime.

Is it Painful to Get Cheek Fillers?

Most patients find cheek fillers to be a smooth and easy process. Patients should feel minimal to no pain during their session. We are happy to apply a local numbing agent to make sure patients are as comfortable as possible. Many fillers today include their own numbing agents in the product, to further ensure a positive experience for the patient. 

Do Cheek Fillers Require Downtime?

Cheek fillers can give you dramatic results without a single incision, which means no recovery time is needed. You should expect slight swelling, redness, or bruising near the injection site, but this is temporary and will abate in a few days. 

We recommend that patients avoid direct sunlight and stay out of environments with excessive heat, like hot tubs, saunas, or tanning beds, for 24-48 hours. Heavy exercise or strenuous activity should also be postponed for at least a day.

What Will Results Look Like?

After receiving cheek fillers, your face will look naturally younger and more supple. Your mid-face will have more definition, and we can even add more contour for those who wish for the appearance of more prominent cheekbones. Any sagging and wrinkling in the area will be improved.  

For Best Results, the Key is Experience

Many people are hesitant to undergo facial fillers because they fear looking puffy, swollen, or ‘done.’ The truth is, when fillers are performed by someone with a deep knowledge of facial anatomy and years of experience, results will always look natural, realistic, and beautiful.
