Turn Back Time with Cheek Fillers

Look 5-10 Years Younger by Restoring Lost Volume to Cheeks


When people think of fillers, usually their mind wanders to thoughts of crow’s feet or the nasolabial folds. While of course, injections are great for smoothing out those areas, fillers can do so much more than that!

In particular, fillers are great for restoring lost volume to cheeks and the midface region.

Cheeks Begin to Lose Volume in Our 30s and 40s

At first we might not notice loss of cheek volume as the changes are very subtle.

However, year after year, they become more pronounced as volume loss continues, due to lost fat, bone loss, and factors like excessive UV exposure, hormonal changes, yo-yo dieting, extreme exercise, or just a naturally thin frame. Unfortunately, this volume loss can add years to people’s appearance, aging them before their time.

The good news is that fillers are a great way to combat volume loss in the cheeks.

Better still, the facial filler procedure is a short, one that offers immediate results.

Cheek Fillers: From Sunken to Plump in Minutes

One of the hallmarks of a youthful appearance is plump, rounded cheeks. Which is why fillers in wrinkle-prone areas can minimize fine lines, but people tend to look the same age afterward–minus the wrinkles. By contrast, plumper cheeks are even more effective at restoring a youthful appearance. Woman-treated-with-Juvederm-in-her-60s

At Esteem Medical Spa, Dr. Glass uses his knowledge of facial anatomy to inject Juvéderm Voluma into cheeks, rejuvenating the mid-face region. Juvéderm Voluma is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that binds water to cells, offering an amazing lifting effect. Better still, it’s completely safe and can be dissolved or reversed, if necessary.

Plus, once the procedure is performed, results are immediately apparent. Patients can even resume their regular activities with little-to-no down time.

But here’s what you’ll probably like best of all … Juvéderm Voluma results can last for up to two years, depending on how quickly the filler breaks down in the body. With results like that,  you definitely want to consider cheek fillers if you’re concerned about facial volume loss.
