High cheekbones have long been associated with having a youthful, stunning profile. Not everyone is blessed with pronounced cheekbones, and even those who are may lose plumpness and definition with age. There is nothing better to give your face a fresh, youthful boost than with cheek filler treatments. At Gertsberg Aesthetics in Brooklyn, NY we have had great success with helping clients look and feel refreshed with cheek fillers while avoiding invasive surgery.
What are cheek fillers?
Cheek fillers are injections that boost cheek volume while making cheeks appear plumper while also getting rid of wrinkles. Cheek fillers are a less invasive alternative to facial surgery but aren’t permanent. There are a few different types of fillers which use collagen or hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body. It has been dubbed the “fountain of youth” and is a top ingredient in anti-aging skin creams.
How Do Fillers Work?
As we age, the collagen, muscle and fat in your cheeks deteriorates. This can lead to sunken cheeks and saggy skin. Various types of cheek fillers can help restore cheek volume in different ways. Some are made with hyaluronic acid, and some boost collagen production. Collagen boosting fillers can have a more permanent effect since they cause your body to create more collagen on its own.
What are the Results?
Most cheek fillers usually need to be refreshed every two years. Hyaluronic fillers plump up the skin. However, the plumpness goes down, so continuous treatments are typically suggested in order to ensure optimal results. Collagen boosting fillers can sometimes last longer because even though the molecules from the filler are deteriorated, your own natural collagen is left behind.
Who is a Candidate?
Cheek fillers typically work best for people with specific facial concerns like sunken cheeks that don’t require a total facelift. If you are unsatisfied by the appearance of decreased facial volume in your cheeks, you could possibly benefit from cheek filler treatments.
