Injectable Options For Chic Cheeks
By NewBeauty Staff |
Full, defined cheeks are a sign of youth and beauty. Although some people are born with naturally high cheekbones, there are nonsurgical ways to achieve sculpted cheeks if you're not one of them.
To add back volume lost with age or to give definition, your dermatologist or plastic surgeon can inject fillers deep under the skin along the cheekbone. While there are a variety of injectables that can be used, your concerns and how your cheeks have aged will determine which one is right for you.
Unlike other fillers, hyaluronic acid fillers are reversible, so if you aren't happy with the results, it can be corrected. However, for longer-lasting and more dramatic results, your doctor may recommend a filler like Sculptra Aesthetic.
Your own fat, harvested by limited liposuction, can also be injected to enhance the cheek area and give the appearance of higher cheekbones.
