Cheeks

Cheeks

Our cheeks help form the basic framework of our faces and play a key role in shaping our appearance. Whether you have classic high cheekbones or more subtle lower ones, your cheeks are one of the first things people will notice. However, age and a harsh environment can alter the appearance of our cheeks.

The effect of ageing on the cheeks

A protein called collagen contributes to the full, firm appearance of young faces. Once we reach our twenties, we lose collagen from our skin at a rate of about one percent a year, contributing to a loss of elasticity and firmness and the formation of wrinkles. During our thirties and forties, fine lines may develop on the cheeks. At the same time, the loss of fat pads and bone in the face can lead to a loss of volume. In the cheek area, this may result in a loss of definition and fullness. Exposure to harsh sunlight has a cumulative effect that becomes especially apparent in the forties and fifties.

Aesthetic treatments for the cheeks

Volumizing-style dermal fillers and skin hydration boosters are two potential treatments for adding volume to the cheeks and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Volumizing-style dermal fillers are used to restore volume to the cheeks, as well as to add or replace contours and structure to cheekbones. When placed in the deeper layers of the skin, fillers provide a consistency that is soft and yet firm enough to provide volume and shape. Skin hydration boosters, meanwhile, are used to increase hydration in areas that feel dry, that have lost elasticity, or where fine lines and wrinkles have started to appear. A program using skin hydration boosters may involve several treatment sessions at regular intervals to gain the optimal effect. The effects of treatment may still be visible six to twelve months after the initial treatment.
