Dermal fillers are the second most popular injectable cosmetic treatment in the world.
They are most commonly associated with adding volume to plump out lips, or else filling deep lines and creases (such as the nose to mouth lines), a classic rejuvenation procedure.
However, there is growing awareness of the value of more generalised use of fillers over a large area.
The trick is not to blitz the lines and creases, as having no wrinkles at all doesn’t necessarily make the face look young – it can in fact look a little odd if not done in the context of the overall face.
When fillers are used on the cheeks, they have a number of advantages and uses:
- Can be used to smooth out ageing hollows (which are worse for those that have lost weight)
- May be used to round and lift the cheekbones
- Promote a ‘lifting’ effect to the face overall
- Helps to lift the folds by the mouth
- Softens the facial features
- Rejuvenating, yet natural look
- Add firmness and texture to thinning skin (compensating for the slowing of collagen production)
- Tackle a ‘jowly’ look which is caused when our faces deflate and skin sags
The New York Times has recently commented on the trend, saying:
There’s a reason for the phrase “baby face.” Round, plump cheeks look young. Saggy, sunken ones look old.
Cheek implants used to be a popular option in the States, but these can result in an odd look and are also prone to infection.
Using dermal fillers is a temporary solution, which can be repeated and modified over time to work with the patient’s natural ageing.
