Sunken cheeks, chipmunk cheeks
Part of the changes that take place in our face due to ageing, decreasing bone mass and loss of collagen and elastin make our skin thinner and slacker, while subcutaneously the volume of fat and muscle tissue shrinks. All these changes together make our face look different. Our once beautiful, tight and full cheeks become sagging, empty bags of skin, and wrinkles and fine lines become more and more visible. We start looking older.
A treatment with fillers can help restore the cheek mass in a very safe way, bringing volume to the right spots and allowing your face to regain its youthful curves.
Loss of cheekbone volume
As we age, many changes take place in our face. Decreasing bone mass and loss of collagen and elastin make our skin thinner and slacker, while subcutaneously the volume of fat and muscle tissue shrinks. All these changes together make our face look different. This is also how our cheekbones lose volume.
But not only do our cheeks fall victim to gravity; in the area around the nose and mouth undesired folds set in as well, and sometimes you even see excess skin under the chin and jawbone.
Treating the cheekbones with a filler will firm up the area as a whole and have an overall lifting effect. The cheekbones will regain volume and contouring, thus tightening the skin, so to speak, leaving it nice and smooth again. Restoring volume to the cheekbones can be carried out either as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with treating the temple area and/or the cheeks, or even as part of a liquid facelift, improving the total facial volume.
Medically known as nasolabial folds, nose-to-mouth lines run from each side of the nose down to the corners of the mouth. Deepening over time, they appear as the facial skin and supportive structures of the cheek become lax from ageing. Repeated smiling also makes these lines more pronounced – but that’s something nobody wants to stop doing!
The recommended way to minimize these nose-to-mouth lines is treatment with a hyaluronic acid filler. At the same time, the practitioner will take into account your cheek and jaw lines. If they have lost definition, volume enhancement in this area will have a lifting effect on the nasolabial folds as well.
In addition to or instead of treatment with a filler, a skin booster programme could be recommended. This powerful skin rejuvenation therapy stimulates the biological functions of collagen and elastin in the skin, giving skin folds less chance and producing a healthy, younger-looking skin with a fresh glow.
