Sunken and crêoy cheeks: how to get hollow cheeks ?

beauty and health concept - smiling young woman pointing to her cheek

With the passage of time, the cheeks deepened and hollow out, giving the face a tired and sad appearance, especially among thin people.
This is caused and triggered by the re-absorption of the sub-cutaneous fat.
Furthermore, the hollowing can be seen even among the young due to sickness, extreme thinness or even as a normal constitutional feature.

There are several stages of filling cheeks exist. (See image)
Sometimes with age people get ‘crêpey-cheek’ ‘hallow cheeks’: this is when a fan of fine lines appear on the cheek, either during movement, or become permanently present.

Hyaluronic acid for filling the cheeks

The injected product is moderately crosslinked type Restylane, but if the cheek is very hollow, I choose a highly crosslinked acid type Restylane Perlane or Emervel Volume. The injection is done with the cannula according to a drawing of crossed fans to give a support network structure to the cheek.
The quantity injected must be right in which makes it possible to fill the hollow by giving a natural result. If this area is over abundantly filled, the cheek will look heavy, and extreme cases start to give the caricatured features of a squirrel. The doctor must be experienced, as excessive correction of this problem might not be visible when the face is at rest, but definitely so when the patient smiles. The result is visible immediately and stabilizes after one month.
The result lasts one or two years, at the end it will persist 50% of the product.

Hyaluronic acid for crêpey cheek

In the indication 'wrinkled jugal', we rather use hyaluronic acids Skin Boosters Restylane Vital-Restylane Ligth Vital or hyaluronic acids quite flexible type Emervel Classic. The goal is to provide skin densification without any modification, or features, or the volume of the face. The structure of the skin is strengthened, but also its elasticity, firmness and radiance, the hydration is deep.
The result lasts one year.
